Beneath the 12-Mile Reef

Pity the poor exhibitors in 1953 that splurged on 3-D equipment, only to see the payroll soar and the profits fall. Nope, Anamorphic Widescreen was the innovation that swept the world. It proved perfect for stories with scenic grandeur, such as Fox’s very early mini-epic shot on Florida locations. Thanks to Bernard Herrmann’s impressive music score, this one’s not going away.

In March, Priscilla Presley revealed that her 8-year-old twin granddaughters, Harper and Finley, had been under her care for more than nine months. They came to stay with her when her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, became embroiled in a tabloid-inspiring divorce from the twins’ father Michael Lockwood.

17 Photos of Johnny Cash and June Carter That Prove Their Love Had Its Own Heartbeat
This month marks 14 years since Johnny Cash's death, and while the legendary musician was known for his "steady like a train, sharp like a razor" voice, it was his marriage to June Carter that people really fell in love with. Despite going through years of hardships with Johnny's infidelity during his first marriage to Vivian Liberto and his heavy drug and alcohol abuse, they eventually made things official when they tied the knot in 1968. The two, who had children from previous marriages, had one son together, John, and made music together until June's passing in May 2003 (John died four months later). They were known for being fiercely in love, and it's a partnership that's both inspiring and timeless. Johnny wrote June a beautiful letter for her 65th birthday in 1994, which was voted by a British poll as the most romantic letter of all time. In it, the singer, also

Musician to Movie Star: In the Footsteps of Elvis

With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…

In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.

Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to

The Details Surrounding Elvis Presley's Death Will Still Upset You Nearly 40 Years Later
It's hard to believe it's been almost 40 years since Elvis Presley died. The rock and roll legend was just 42 years old when he tragically passed away on Aug. 16, 1977. Elvis was in one of the bathrooms of his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tn, when he suffered a heart attack and collapsed on the floor at approximately 2 p.m. He was later found face down in front of the toilet and rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital, where doctors tried to resuscitate him. After several failed attempts, Elvis was pronounced dead an hour later and his body was shipped to the morgue, where an autopsy was conducted that same afternoon. Just three days later, a coroner's report was released, revealing that Elvis's cause of death was "hypertensive cardiovascular disease with atherosclerotic heart disease," also known as a heart attack. However, two months later, a toxicology report found 14 drugs in Elvis's system, including morphine,

Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s 50th Wedding Anniversary: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Nuptials
He was one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, an insanely handsome music and film star whose engagement to a dark-haired non-celeb resulted in a stack of headlines and a pile of broken hearts. There’s a good chance that the news made your mom grab a box of Kleenex and excuse herself from the dinner table … and no, we’re not talking about George Clooney.

We’re drifting back to May 1, 1967 when Elvis Presley married 21-year-old Priscilla Ann Beaulieu. At that time, the 32-year-old King – still several years away from a rhinestone jumpsuit – was the world’s top-earning entertainer,

Connie Francis on Surviving Rape and Losing the Love of Her Life: ‘After All These Years, I Still Love to Sing’
Her breezy pop hits and beach party movies made Connie Francis one of the biggest stars of the ’50s and early ’60s, but her life has been far from sunny.

After a successful singing career with mega-hits like “Who’s Sorry Now,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” and “Stupid Cupid,” plus a starring role in the 1960 spring break classic Where the Boys Are, the chanteuse suffered hardship and heartbreak in the decades to come—including rape, murder, and the death of her true love.

Conjuring 2 – Review

Director James Wan clearly knows a thing or two about sequels. His The Conjuring 2 is not simply a remake of the first one but delivers a wealth of new scares, and despite a steep running time, it’s a worthy follow-up. Wan (Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious) delivers another adventure of those true-life Catholic P.I.s (Paranormal Investigators) Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). This time they’re introduced in 1976 performing a séance at the original Amityville horror house on Long Island where Lorraine is terrorized by a demonic nun who haunts her dreams. The Conjuring 2 then shifts to England, where it focuses on the real-life “Enfield Poltergeist” case (the Brit version of Amityville). Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Conner) a weary working-class single mother of four, has had her home turned into a playground for a host of demonic forces that may center on an

‘The Music of David Lynch’ Tribute Concert Getting Double-lp Release

If a theatrical re-release of Blue Velvet wasn’t enough to hold one over until next year, when we get what amounts to around 18 new hours of David Lynch-directed drama, we have some music to your ears today. Around a year ago, Los Angeles’ Ace Hotel held “The Music of David Lynch” concert, hosted by the Mulholland Dr. director’s foundation.

Featuring his go-to composer Angelo Badalamenti as well as Donovan, Karen O, Lykke Li, Duran Duran, Moby, The Flaming Lips, Twin Peaks (of course), and more as they cover various tracks from his work, it’s now been announced the show will get a double-lp vinyl release next week. While various low-quality recordings of it have made their way online since the concert, this will mark the first official release of the tracks, and we can’t wait to hear them.

Lynch / Rivette. Love Me Tender: “Wild at Heart” and “L’amour fou”

  • MUBI
This article accompanies the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s dual retrospective of the films of Jacques Rivette and David Lynch and is part of an ongoing review of Rivette’s films for the Notebook, in light of several major re-releases of his work.Amour fou, in Lynch’s Wild at Heart, Rivette’s L’amour fou, is a pretext for the theatrical. Only in Lynch’s very romantic Palme d’Or winner do the shifts between and coalesces of plastic (the stage) and interior life (the love affair) lead to a union of any kind; when Sailor (Nicolas Cage) mounts the hood of his sweetheart’s Cadillac and serenades her with “Love Me Tender,” the superficiality of the reference to badboy Elvis Presley movies achieves a sort of extradimensional poignancy: the characters live in a plastic world, of Wizard of Oz witches, barroom brawls, lipstick-smeared killer moms, Texas hitmen,

59 years ago today: Elvis Presley made his historic second appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'
59 years ago today, Elvis Presley made his second appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” It was the first time he was on the show with the eponymous host present, as Sullivan was recovering from a car accident. Charles Laughton guest hosted that show. On the October 28, 1956 show, Presley performed “Don’t Be Cruel” and “Love Me Tender.” And he played a four minute-long version of his hit “Hound Dog.” (That September, he had performed a one minute and seven seconds version of the song on the show.) At both his first and second appearance on the show, audiences went wild for his gyrating hips. It was at his third and final appearance on the show, in January 1957, that he was famously taped and photographed from the waist up only. Before his first appearance on “Ed Sullivan,” the host had vowed to never allow Presley on the show. Sullivan wouldn’t

10 Most Intriguing Unsolved Murders Of All Time

wikipedia

Terrifyingly, one in three murders go unsolved in America.

Why? Detectives believe that, despite the advances in forensic technology such as fingerprinting and DNA testing, potential witnesses are failing to come forward and provide the police with vital information that might help them to solve these cases.

Since 1960, more than 200,000 murder cases remain unsolved and as time passes, it is unlikely that the perpetrators will ever be brought to justice. Most of these cases we get to hear about by watching the news or reading the local newspaper, however some don’t even manage to reach the headlines and some are now so old that they have faded in memory entirely.

Some of the most compelling murder mysteries are revisited in TV shows and movies, preserved forever for their intrigue, but tragically, they will likely remain unsolved in real life…

The 50 Definitive Relationship Dramas: 50-41

Before I met my wife, my longest relationship lasted a span of only three months. I wasn’t afraid of commitment; I was too committed too early. I fell fast and hard. Every time. But that doesn’t mean I never went through the typical relationship bumps in the road. I fought with plenty of exes about normal things – jealousy, dishonesty, etc. And now my wife and I fight about plenty of the same things, but we handle it, just like every other successful couple. In the spirit of tumultuous relationships, this list looks at the definitive relationship dramas. These are films that focus on one or more romantic relationships. These aren’t just “falling in love” movies. These are movies that dissect some side of a relationship that helps to drive the plot. So, without further ado, let’s join hands on this journey together.

These Actors Clearly Owe Their Success to Elvis Presley
The world knew him as the King of Rock and Roll, but it turns out that Elvis Presley had a pretty good eye when it came to co-stars who’d go on to achieve greater fame in later life (or, in a couple of cases, those whose careers had fallen on hard times and needed a little boost; Angela Lansbury, I’m looking at you). Elvis starred in 31 movies (and an additional couple of concert movies) during his lifetime — a movie career that began with the Nov. 15, 1956 release of Love Me Tender — but how many of
