Great news for Lee Remick fans: eleven of her movies will be shown on Thursday, Aug. 26, on Turner Classic Movies. Remick Day is part of TCM’s "Summer Under the Stars" series. [Lee Remick schedule.] I’ve been a major Lee Remick fan since I saw this pretty, talented blonde with the bluest of blue eyes in two movies: Otto Preminger‘s courtroom comedy-drama Anatomy of a Murder (1959) and, in a supporting role, Martin Ritt‘s The Long, Hot Summer (1958). Her movies have ranged from the excellent (the aforementioned Anatomy of a Murder) to the exceedingly awful (The Medusa Touch), but no matter how atrocious the screenplay Remick has always brought honesty, intelligence, and a cool sensuality to her roles. There are four TCM premieres on Lee Remick Day: Robert Mulligan‘s drama Baby, the Rain Must Fall (1965), co-starring Steve McQueen and Don Murray; Don Sharp‘s Ira thriller Hennessy (1975), with Rod Steiger »

Historians still disagree on what killed Classical Hollywood Cinema. Academics with an analytical bent tend to write about the Paramount Decree of 1948, postwar suburbanization, the increasing popularity of television, and the new economic independence of stars who began to package their own deals to shop around to the studios. But, as with Toltec creation myths or my aunt’s disquisitions on her recipe for California Taco Supreme*, sometimes it is the most poetically irrational explanations that have the most satisfying relationship to the truth. I had one of those illogical revelations myself the other day, entranced by Jimmy Stewart’s rage near the end of Anthony Mann’s The Naked Spur. He’s the one who did it, I realized: it was Jimmy Stewart who killed Hollywood.
I used to point to four movies in particular as marking the symbolic death of old Hollywood. I liked Peter Bogdanovich’s description »
For this edition Shadows of Film Noir, we take a look at Otto Preminger's Laura, produced by Twentieth Century Fox in 1944. It was a glossy, high-class production that was well regarded, and it was a hit, even though it was not one of the year's top grossers. It won an Oscar for its black-and-white cinematography, and received nominations for directing, screenplay, art direction, and supporting actor. Since then, it has come to be known as one of Preminger's greatest films, along with Anatomy of a Murder (1959). It's an odd combination of class and back-alley emotions, all coming together in a bizarre, brilliant way.

The IMDb250. A list of the top 250 films as ranked by the users of the biggest internet movie site on the web. It is based upon the ratings provided by the users of the Internet Movie Database, which number into the millions. As such, it’s a perfect representation of the opinions of the movie masses, and arguably the most comprehensive ranking system on the Internet.
It’s because of this that we at HeyUGuys (and in this case we is myself and Gary) have decided to set ourselves a project. To watch and review all 250 movies on the list. We’ve frozen the list as of January 1st of this year. It’s not as simple as it sounds, we are watching them all in one year, 125 each.
This is our 21st update, my next five films watched for the project. You can find last week’s update here. »

Think you love Lost and/or Tron? Well, it turns out you can love them even more if you give them opening credits done in the style of Saul Bass. Who is Saul Bass, you may ask? He’s best known for designing artistic cut-out/silhouette-style opening sequences and movie posters for films like Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, and Bunny Lake Is Missing among others.
After the jump, check out the Saul Bass-style fake opening credits for Lost, starring Mysterious Island and The Others, and Tron, starring Fantastic Electronic World and Amazing Races. [via Super Punch]

His minimalistic 1950's/1960's-style is very unique, and we often post movie posters imitating his style in our Cool Stuff columns. But what is Saul Bass designed the opening title sequence for every movie and television show? What might they look like. Hexagonall decided to try to recreate the opening of Tron and the »
