Hollywood Flashback: Before 'La La Land,' an Original Musical Won in 1959

23 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

La La Land will be the first original musical to win the best picture Oscar since 1958's Gigi, an MGM production about a singing-and-dancing Parisian courtesan that THR called "a gaily naughty fairy tale for adults." Along with best picture, Gigi took home eight other Oscars, including best director for Vincente Minnelli, in a record-breaking sweep (that lasted exactly one year, until Ben-Hur took home 11).

Liza Minnelli credits the film's success to her father's knowledge of "art, painting and literature — he was an expert at bringing all the arts into the movies," »

Great Job, Internet!: How La La Land took inspiration from one particular MGM director

22 February 2017 12:24 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Apparently, no one’s sick of talking about La La Land yet, as more behind-the-scenes pieces, homages, and takeoffs keep pouring in as we get closer to the movie’s likely Oscar sweep. Most know that the film itself is an homage to classic Hollywood musicals. But in a new short video, Frame By Frame has examined its tie to one director in particular: Vincente Minnelli (a.k.a. Liza’s dad and Judy Garland’s second husband). Minnelli helmed musicals in the golden MGM era like Meet Me In St. Louis, An American In Paris, and Gigi. Frame By Frame’s film theorists point out Damien Chazelle used many of Minnelli’s specific techniques—like long tracking shots, surrealism, even the bold use of color—which helped La La Land stand out just as much as Gigi.

It’s a granular, educational examination for musical buffs, although the “stolen »

Witness the Evolution of Cinematography with Compilation of Oscar Winners

6 February 2017 1:47 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This past weekend, the American Society of Cinematographers awarded Greig Fraser for his contribution to Lion as last year’s greatest accomplishment in the field. Of course, his achievement was just a small sampling of the fantastic work from directors of photography, but it did give us a stronger hint at what may be the winner on Oscar night. Ahead of the ceremony, we have a new video compilation that honors all the past winners in the category at the Academy Awards

Created by Burger Fiction, it spans the stunning silent landmark Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans all the way up to the end of Emmanuel Lubezki‘s three-peat win for The Revenant. Aside from the advancements in color and aspect ration, it’s a thrill to see some of cinema’s most iconic shots side-by-side. However, the best way to experience the evolution of the craft is by »

Written by: Billy Wilder, I.A.L. Diamond from a novel by Claude Anet

Produced and Directed by Billy Wilder

A favorite of Billy Wilder-philes, Love in the Afternoon is a strong expression of the ‘romantic-Lubitsch’ vein in Wilder’s work. It’s essentially a return to the early ’30s Lubitsch comedies with Maurice Chevalier, but played in a more bittersweet Viennese register. It’s also Wilder’s first collaboration with the comedy screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond. Together they fashion the predominantly verbal comedy machine that will carry them through three or four big hits, and a few losers that have become classics anyway. »
