The last time Barbra Streisand was on “The Tonight Show” was in March 1963. That’s 51 years ago! But if there’s anyone capable of breaking that unfathomable (and just plain weird) streak, it’s Jimmy Fallon. Last night, she came on to promote her new album “Partners,” a collection of vocal duets that feature the likes of classic and modern day crooners like Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, John Legend and Josh Groban. Also on the record are Michael Buble, Blake Shelton and Elvis Presley, »

To promote her new duets album, “Partners,” Barbra Streisand paid a visit to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night and performed an impressive medley of duets with the host, including hits from Elvis Presley, Blake Shelton and Michael Buble.
If hosting doesn’t pan out, at least Fallon could have a long career at a Vegas revue.

In what marks her first appearance as a late-night guest in over 50 years, Barbra Streisand appeared on The Tonight Show Monday to promote her new album Partners, which features the legendary diva performing duets with a number of high-profile male vocalists. She performed a medley of three of those tracks tonight, with Jimmy Fallon standing in for duet partners Elvis Presley ("Love Me Tender"), Blake Shelton ("I'd Want It to be You") and Michael Bublé ("It Had to Be You"). We all know Jimmy never avoids the opportunity to do bad musical impressions in a goofy Elvis wig and a cowboy hat, but even his hamming couldn't detract from the majesty that is Babs live. »

This week, Christie’s, the world’s largest fine arts auction house, is hosting an inaugural online-only sale of what are billed as Vintage Film Posters, though it is an eclectic collection of old and new. There are plenty of familiar faces, like Reynold Brown’s Attack of the 50Ft. Woman, Saul Bass’s The Man With the Golden Arm, Giorgio Olivetti’s La Dolce Vita, Bob Peak’s My Fair Lady, and Philip Castle’s Clockwork Orange, but what is interesting in terms of the auction market is the inclusion of a number of recent Mondo posters by Tyler Stout, Todd Slater and Laurent Durieux. The auction also includes La Boca’s already-classic, four-year-old set of silkscreen teasers for Black Swan.
The poster that really caught my eye, however, and one I’d never seen before, is this stunning Deco design by one Ram Richman for Jean Grémillon’s »

Midway through David Lynch’s Palme d’Or winning, bizarro road-tripping love story, Lula tells her lover Sailor, ‘This whole world is wild at heart and weird on top,’ as if describing not the actual world, but the cinematic pop-nightmare universe which Lynch has envisioned for them to inhibit. Alternately weird and romantic, hysterical and disturbing, Wild at Heart is a farcical melodrama heightened by sweltering sexual passion, non-stop pop culture references and a remarkably unhinged sense of the contradiction between self-confidence and diffidence. And despite a plot that weaves in spousal murder, Elvis sing-a-longs and a warped Wizard of Oz motif, Sailor and Lula still receive their happy ending in the sun. Who would have thought that Barry Gifford’s pulpy novel could be blended like a sugary spiked milkshake with the likes of ‘Love Me Tender’ and Glinda the Good Witch. Only from the mind of David Lynch. »
