23 July 2012 11:22 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exceptional Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director Frank Pierson, who became presidents of both the Writers Guild, West, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences, died today in Los Angeles of natural causes following a short illness, according to his manager. He was 87. Gentlemanly yet ornery, meticulous yet creative, Pierson compiled a remarkable writing resume, starting in the 1950s with television shows like Have Gun, Will Travel and Playhouse 90, followed by five decades of films like Cat Ballou (screenplay by Walter Newman and Frank R. Pierson), Dog Day Afternoon (screenplay by Frank Pierson), A Star Is Born (screenplay by Joan Didion & John Gregory Dunne and Frank Pierson), In Country (screenplay by Frank Pierson and Cynthia Cidre), and Presumed Innocent (screenplay by Frank Pierson and Alan J.

Ann Rutherford‘s most notable screen roles were in films made away from both MGM and Wallace Beery. She was a young woman who falls for trumpeter George Montgomery in Archie Mayo’s 20th Century Fox musical Orchestra Wives (1942), and became enmeshed with (possibly) amnesiac Tom Conway in Anthony Mann’s Rko thriller Two O’Clock Courage (1945).

Following a couple of minor supporting roles — in the Danny Kaye comedy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947) at Goldwyn and the Errol Flynn costumer The Adventures of Don Juan (1948) at Warner Bros. — and the female lead in the independently made cattle drama Operation Haylift (1950), opposite Bill Williams, Ann Rutherford retired from the screen. (Rutherford would later say that her Operation Haylift experience was anything but pleasant.)

She then turned to television, making regular television appearances in the ’50s (The Donna Reed Show, Playhouse 90, »

R.I.P. Ray Bradbury (1920 - 2012)

6 June 2012 1:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary American writer Ray Bradbury passed away on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, aged 91. Born in Waukegan, Illinois in 1920, Bradbury began his career contributing short tales to various sci-fi and speculative fiction fanzines in his late teens, and went on to become one of the genre's most celebrated authors, penning classics such as The Martian Chronicles (1950), Fahrenheit 451 (1953), Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962) and The Halloween Tree (1972) in a career that spanned in excess of 70 years.

In addition to writing over 600 stories, the prolific Bradbury also earned a host film and television credits. Several of his tales were adapted by Hollywood, most notably François Truffaut's 1966 adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, while he also contributed to numerous television anthology series such as Suspense, Playhouse 90, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone and The Ray Bradbury Theatre. Bradbury was also responsible for writing the screenplays to John Huston's 1956 screen adaptation of »

Remember Me: Ben Gazzara

4 February 2012 6:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ben Gazzara died on February 3 of pancreatic cancer.  An alumnus of the famed Actors’ Studio, he had a long career on stage, TV, and film.  Not just long, but accomplished. 

On Broadway, he was the original Brick in the Tennessee Williams’ classic, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and then he eclipsed that triumph with another powerful stage performance as a junkie whose habit poisons his relationship with everyone who loves him in A Hat Full of Rain

His TV career launched in the early 1950s and extended through the next five decades.  His small screen credits included roles on the landmark live drama anthologies of the 50s, such as The United States Steel Hour, Kraft Theatre, and Playhouse 90, and such acclaimed productions as cop drama A Question of Honor (1982), one of network TV’s first attempts to address the then detonating AIDS epidemic in An Early Frost (1985), and the epic mini-series, »
