Read Marilyn Monroe's Very Racy Love Letter from Arthur Miller

20 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sexting wouldn't be invented for another half-century. But that didn't stop Arthur Miller from expressing some rather explicit long-distance passion for Marilyn Monroe. In the months before the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Death of a Salesman wed the screen siren, then the most famous star in the world, he was head over heels in love with her - and then some. In a racy, never-before-seen letter he mailed to her on April 30, 1956, he writes that when they are back together again and she awakens next to him, "I will kiss you and hold you close to me and sensational things will then happen. »

The Retrospective of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival will celebrate the centenary of Technicolor. The Retrospective will present around 30 magnificent Technicolor films, some of which have been elaborately restored. They were made in the early years between the dawn of Technicolor and 1953 – and include six British films.

“The blazing red of Southern skies in Gone with the Wind or the ecstatic yellow of the raincoats in Singin’ in the Rain – in those days, the play of dramatically intensified colours was a sensation. The Technicolor process combined with cultural and economic trends to produce great cinematic works of art that still thrill audiences today,” says Berlinale Director Dieter Kosslick.

As of 1915, inventors Herbert T. Kalmus, Daniel Comstock and W. Burton Wescott developed the two-colour process Technicolor No. »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

30 September 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

28 Common Misconceptions About Sex

24 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

shutterstock.com

You’d think it would be easy to talk about sex – it’s all over the place and right in your face. Television teases barely dressed young men and women in order to keep advertisers happy and Tumblr in business, and salacious gossip is on the cover of every magazine, people desperate to know which celebrities have been making the beast with two backs – or the beast with one back and a funny shaped middle, depending on preference and athleticism. When some horrendous excuse for a human being uploads naked pictures of a dozen or so reasonably famous women without their consent, that’s front page news for days. Meanwhile, there are teenagers in small towns all over America who think that ‘fellatio’ is a character from Shakespeare.

The Importance of Blondes in Classic Horror

19 September 2014 1:29 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

“Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”  — Alfred Hitchcock To be a person of virtue, one must possess the characteristics of being morally just and kind-hearted.  It is rather easy to determine whether or not a person is virtuous based on interactions with them, but to be able to convey cinematically that a person is of virtue, unfortunately must be expressed through the way an actor or actress looks and acts.  In the world of the early horror films, filmmakers did not have the luxury of time to develop the personalities and back-stories of secondary characters.  Filmmakers were to generate a tale of a monster to scare the masses, and quite honestly, couldn’t be bothered finding time to explain why the damsel in distress was worth anything other than eye candy and something for a monster to desire.

Lauren Bacall: The real winner in 1953's 'How to Marry a Millionaire'

13 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the opening credits of 1953’s How to Marry a Millionaire, the onscreen billing order ran Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, and then Lauren Bacall—though it was advertised with Monroe billed first (the success of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes earlier that year put her well on her way to swooning super-stardom). Either way, Bacall came last.

But that didn’t stop the late actress from stealing the movie.

Before getting any further, it’s important to establish that this is the kind of movie where somebody wins. How to Marry a Millionaire is about three models who conspire to marry rich. »

23 April 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jessica Chastain has been cast as Marilyn Monroe in director Andrew Dominik's upcoming biopic Blonde.

Brad Pitt's Plan B and Worldview Entertainment will produce the adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates's 2001 novel of the same title, which Naomi Watts originally signed up to star in.

From Michelle Williams to Kerry Katona, we compile 12 other actresses who have portrayed or paid tribute to Hollywood's original blonde bombshell below.

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams was Oscar-nominated for her critically-acclaimed performance as Monroe in Simon Curtis's My Week with Marilyn (2011). The movie centered on Monroe's fraught relationship with her then co-star Laurence Olivier, played by Kenneth Branagh, during the production of The Prince and the Showgirl in Britain.

Reflecting upon the role, Williams said: "Gosh, sometimes I can't even believe I did it because the challenges were just...

"In a way, you had to remove the fact that she was an »
