Elia Kazan's Private Letters: Sleeping With Marilyn, Chastising Beatty and Discovering Newman

10 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the April 18 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Director Elia Kazan remains one of Hollywood's most polarizing figures. He directed such classics as A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), On the Waterfront (1954), East of Eden (1955) and Splendor in the Grass (1961). The native New Yorker's career began on the stage and, as such, Kazan was an actor's director; he discovered Marlon Brando, James Dean and Warren Beatty. He also loved writers and proved a nimble collaborator for such icons as Tennessee Williams and John Steinbeck. But when he testified before the House Un-

Marlon Brando's Birthday: Listen to Him Trash Burt Reynolds

3 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Marlon Brando's 90th birthday. Or it would be his 90th birthday if he were alive. You understand. Marlon Brando was an eccentric man, but let's acknowledge right now that his performance in "A Streetcar Named Desire" remains shocking and resonant over 60 years later. Love him in "The Godfather," "On the Waterfront," "Viva Zapata," and -- hell -- "Reflections in a Golden Eye" too. We love Marlon Brando. Now that formalities are out of the way, let's get to the fun: Marlon Brando hated Burt Reynolds. A lot. It is a joy to hear him complain about the "Smokey and the Bandit" star, and it is also so, so telling. Oh, you hate Burt Reynolds' "narcissism," Marlon? I can't think of a single person who'd say the same thing about you. Not a one. Oh, wait. A number of people.  Just enjoy this damn audio of Brando ranting »

The Academy Events Spring 2014

1 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On slate this month for screening events at AMPAS – A trilogy of documentaries tailor-made for fans of the L.A. music scene in the early 80’s and two of the most fascinating characters to come out of the “Kennedy’s Camelot” era in American History.

Penelope Spheeris’ Decline Of Western Civilization films (I, II, and III) are a great walk down memory lane for music fans that came of age during the early 80’s in Los Angeles. 1 and 3 cover the early days of punk rock and 2, “the metal years” is an eye-opening look into the hair-bands that were struggling to make it on the famed Sunset Strip.

Grey Gardens, you just have to see to believe. Funny, sad, hilarious and sometimes shocking, this classic Maysles Brothers film documents a branch of the Kennedy family tree most people don’t know even existed.

Late Scribe Budd Schulberg Signs With Gersh

26 March 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

On the centennial anniversary of the birth of Oscar-winning On The Waterfront and A Face In The Crowd writer Budd Schulberg, his widow Betsy Schulberg has signed with Gersh to rep his estate. He died at 95 in 2009. The agency plans to steer several adaptations of his novels and reboots of his classic works. Schulberg wrote the Oscar-winning script for Elia Kazan’s On The Waterfront, and the novels What Makes Sammy Run?, The Disenchanted and The Harder They Fall. The son of a powerful Paramount exec, Schulberg had a boisterous and highly eventful life with his share of controversy. He famously became a friendly witness at the House Un-American Activities Committee, testifying about his time as a member of the Communist Party and naming eight Hollywood colleagues who were also members. He also served in the Oss in WWII and reportedly compiled evidence against and arrested Nazi propagandist director Leni Reifenstahl. »

Salt of the Earth: Made of labour, by labour, for labour

11 March 2014 3:24 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sixty years ago a team of radical, blacklisted filmmakers made Salt of the Earth, a powerful representation of the agency of Us workers. Sukhdev Sandhu celebrates a talisman of the American left

Demonised and hounded off screen on its release, Salt of the Earth, released in almost impossible circumstances 60 years ago, has a strong claim to being the most ambitious American film ever made. According to its director Herbert J Biberman and screenwriter Michael Wilson, it was the "first feature film ever made in [the Us] of labour, by labour, and for labour". More than that, it was "a film that does not tolerate minorities but celebrates their greatness".

Biberman, Wilson and producer Paul Jarrico had all been exiled from Hollywood for their politics. Biberman had worked in theatres in Moscow and co-founded the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League before being jailed for six months for refusing to testify before the House Committee on »

Oscars: The Top 25 (Best Cinematography)

10 March 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hollywood News Network: Another new weekly series I’m going to be doing surrounds the top 25 Oscar winners in just about all of the categories. Aside from the shorts and something like Best Sound Mixing, I’ll be hitting them all, including of course the big eight categories. For starters though, I figured I’d go with one of the most highly regarded of the technical categories…Best Cinematography. Depending on the category, I may discuss the individual winners I’m citing specifically or just sort of give a broad overview of the winners, but for now, I’ll keep it simple. Honestly though, you all mostly want to see the list anyway, so I have no problem obliging you there. Just be patient over the next few paragraphs… There are few categories more overtly artistic than this one, though the category has undergone some major changes over the decades. »

Wamg Talks To Jeff Goldblum: The Grand Budapest Hotel

6 March 2014 5:46 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Welcome, beloved guest-to-be. Upon your check-in to The Grand Budapest Hotel on Friday, you might meet a very important attorney that goes by the name of Deputy Kovacs, who is played by Jeff Goldblum in Wes Anderson’s new caper about friendship, honor, and promises fulfilled. This week, Wamg and a few members of the press sat down (in a roundtable discussion) with Goldblum to talk about the working with Anderson, upcoming projects, and memes. Check it out below!

The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars; and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair — all »

'Silence of the Lambs', 'No Country for Old Men' & 32 More, Award-Winning Books Turned into Movies on Sale for Kindle

1 March 2014 8:17 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I received a Kindle for Christmas and I absolutely love it. I am not a particularly fast reader, but with this device my reading speed has dramatically increased and one thing I do every day is check the Kindle Daily Deals at Amazon as they frequently offer something worth picking up for only $1.99. Well, today the list is rather long as they have 34 books that eventually inspired award-winning movies on sale. No, this doesn't mean Oscar winning as you'll notice the book that helped inspire Ron Howard's Rush is included here and the Academy couldn't even see fit to offer it a Sound nomination. However, we all saw Daniel Bruhl take home a few awards already so it definitely counts. Books that inspired this year's Oscar crop are limited to the books behind Philomena and The Invisible Woman, but there is a lot more to take away beyond that. »

This Video of a Couple Breaking Up Using Only Movie Titles Is Insanely Clever & Weird (Video)

12 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You know how some folks can practically hold an entire conversation using "Simpsons" quotes? The super-quippy people at Poykpac Comedy came up with this video that shows a couple having an entire conversation using only movie titles. There isn't one word that isn't part of a movie title, not even the conversation they have with the waitress ("Waitress," as in the adorable movie with Keri Russell, written and directed by the late Adrienne Shelly!).

And they're not just any movies, either. We're talking classics like "On the Waterfront" (where this schmuck was seen canoodling with another woman!) to "What Is It?" the super obscure movie by Crispin Glover, which isn't even available for purchase! Glover tours with the film as part of a one-man show. And that's the least weird thing about it. Seriously, the writers have an impressive breadth of knowledge on top of their comedy chops. That's one conversation with 154 movie titles, »

Leonard Hirshan, Longtime Manager of Clint Eastwood, Dies at 86

1 February 2014 11:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leonard Hirshan, the longtime manager of Clint Eastwood who also counted Edward G. Robinson, Greer Garson, Sophia Loren, Angela Lansbury, Sammy Davis Jr. and Bruce Beresford among his clients over the course of his six-decade career as an agent and manager, died January 31 in Beverly Hills of Merkel cell carcinoma. He was 86.

Hirshan had repped Eastwood since the 1960s, continuing to do so even after leaving Wme in 2004 to form his own eponymous management firm.

Among other notable accomplishments for the longtime former William Morris agent was negotiating Elvis Presley’s first Wma contract.

The native New Yorker got his start in the New York Wma mailroom in 1951, and quickly rose through the ranks when he pushed his first client, Eva Marie Saint, for the film “On the Waterfront,” for which she won a supporting actress Oscar.

In 1955 he moved to Hollywood, where he began representing actors including Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. »

Re-Viewed: Can Stallone's classic Rocky still land a knockout blow?

25 January 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Perception versus reality is a perpetual rivalry that comfortably overshadows the epic battles between Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed. With Sylvester Stallone hobbling back into the boxing arena for his latest effort Grudge Match, now seems a fitting time to reexamine Rocky, the movie that propelled him to stardom in 1976, scored 10 Oscar nominations and became firmly embedded within the tapestry of modern culture. But almost four decades on, can it still land a knockout blow?

When one thinks of Rocky, an array of iconic moments, sounds and feelings are instantly evoked. The triumphant theme music; the fists furiously pounding animal carcasses in the meat freezer; the training montage that sees the Italian Stallion run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and punch the air. Then there are the desperate cries of "Adriaaaan" after the climactic fight, which to this day continues to cause countless sore throats as »
