Duel in the Sun

15 August 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

David O. Selznick’s absurdly over-cooked western epic is a great picture, even if much of it induces a kind of hypnotic, mouth-hanging-open disbelief. Is this monument to the sex appeal of Jennifer Jones, Kitsch in terrible taste, or have Selznick and his army of Hollywood talents found a new level of hyped melodramatic harmony? It certainly has the star-power, beginning with Gregory Peck as a cowboy rapist who learned his bedside manners from Popeye’s Bluto. It’s all hugely enjoyable.

Jason Bateman Recalls His Roots as a Child Actor

11 August 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jason Bateman is best known as a comedic straight man, earning raves in critically acclaimed projects such as “Juno,” “Zootopia” and “Arrested Development,” which will be returning to Netflix this summer. “Without question that was the most important role I’ve ever had,” says Bateman of his portrayal of family mainstay Michael Bluth. He’s also starring in (and directing four episodes of) “Ozark,” the moody, intense Netflix thriller that he also exec produces.

Bateman has been acting since childhood. His first Variety mention was on Nov. 16, 1979, when he signed with the Dorothy Day Otis/Jack Rose Agency at age 10. Two years later, he had his breakthrough when he joined the hit series “Little House on the Prairie,” followed by “Silver Spoons,” then moved into TV leads with “Valerie.” He made his directing debut in that sitcom, renamed “Valerie’s Family” and then “The Hogan Family.”

The studio – a few years later to be reorganized under the name of its distribution arm, Paramount – balks. Valentino goes on a “one-man strike.” In 42nd Street-style, unknown 22-year-old Valentino look-alike contest winner Jacob Krantz of Manhattan steps in, shortly afterwards to become known worldwide as Latin Lover Ricardo Cortez of »

Adam West, TV’s ‘Batman,’ Dies at 88

10 June 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Adam West — an actor defined and also constrained by his role in the 1960s series “Batman” — died Friday night in Los Angeles. He was 88. A rep said that he died after a short battle with leukemia.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.

West became known to a new generation of TV fans through his recurring voice role on Fox’s “Family Guy” as Mayor Adam West, the horribly corrupt, inept and vain leader of Quahog, Rhode Island. West was a regular on the show from 2000 through its most recent season. West in recent years did a wide range of voice-over work, on such shows as Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken” and Disney Channel’s “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.”

Lola Albright, the glamorous blonde actress best known for starring on the television series “Peter Gunn,” died Thursday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 92.

A native of Akron, Ohio, news of her death was first reported by the Akron Beacon-Journal. “She went very peacefully,” her friend Eric Anderson told the newspaper. “She died at 7:20 a.m. of natural causes. We loved her so much.”

Her first film appearance came in 1947 in “The Unfinished Dance,” starring Margaret O’Brien. She then starred with Judy Garland in “Easter Parade” in 1948. The next year she appeared opposite Kirk Douglas in 1949’s “Champion,” portraying a spurned lover. Douglas received an Oscar nomination for his work.

How Mary Tyler Moore Changed the Female TV Hero

26 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The top three rated American shows of the 1969-1970 television season were, in order, Laugh-In, a ribald comedy show in which women were basically bikini-wearing furniture, and Gunsmoke and Bonanza, two cowboy shows in which tumbleweeds outnumbered female characters. Into this less-than-encouraging landscape, The Mary Tyler Moore Show was dropped into the CBS Saturday night line-up in September 1970 as if from a great height. Here was an utterly new character, defined in the pilot episode by her spunkiness. She was neither wife nor mother, sister nor daughter – she was the »
