Review: ’78/52′ is a Meticulous Examination of One of Alfred Hitchcock’s Most Iconic Scenes

18 October 2017 4:49 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho premiered in 1960, quickly becoming a massive box office success, as well as a critical darling with the press. In the passing decades, it’s become known as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made, the rare violent slasher movie to accompany titles like Casablanca and Gone with the Wind on best-of-all-time film lists. The most talked-about element of the film, aside from the twisting nature of the plot, was undoubtedly the murder of Marion Crane, played by Janet Leigh, in her shower at the Bates Motel. In Hitchcock’s filmography, Psycho came immediately after the star-studded, glossy Hollywood sheen of North by Northwest, a positively safe studio choice by comparison with the black-and-white slasher picture. The film was almost uncharacteristically vicious for Hitchcock in its portrayal of violence, a fact which only added to Psycho’s impact with audiences.

9th Lumière Festival Launches With Frémaux, Tavernier, Mann, Mitchell, Del Toro, Cuaron, Swinton, Lambert, Brühl

15 October 2017 4:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lyon, France  —  The 9th Lumière Festival opened in Lyon on Saturday with a glitzy and star-studded yet intimate and informal ceremony at the cavernous Halle Tony Garnier, the city’s famed concert hall.

Thierry Frémaux and Bertrand Tavernier, the respective director and president of the Institut Lumière, paid tribute to stars and filmmakers past and present, including a slew of high-profile guests that included Tilda Swinton, who was greeted with an emotional ovation, Michael Mann, Christopher Lambert and Daniel Brühl. Also in attendance were Mexican filmmakers Guillermo Del Toro and Alfonso Cuarón, who the laid-back Fremaux greeted in Spanish with “Hola cabrones!” – a more affectionate salutation than it might seem – and a mariachi band serenade.

It was, however, French actor and rock ‘n’ roll icon Eddy Mitchell, who dazzled the crowd with his entrance. Although he didn’t play live, “Pas de boogie woogie,” his 1976 hit cover of the Jerry Lee Lewis classic, blared as the »

Review: 78/52, Examining the Psycho Shower Scene and Its Effect on the World

12 October 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

At the end of the summer of 1960, audiences and fans of British auteur Alfred Hitchcock and his already stellar filmography scurried into cinemas to watch his new film, Psycho.   Riding a growing wave of popularity, hot on the heels of films like North by Northwest in ‘59, Vertigo in ‘58 and his television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, there was an anticipation but also an expectation as to what Psycho was going to be about. Little did the general public know that Hitchcock was rallying against that expectation and was going to play a tremendous prank that would shake this audience to its core.    Alexandre O. Philippe’s documentary 78/52 breaks down and explores, to tremendous detail, the most infamous shower scene in the...

Director Stephen Frears chat to us about British cinema, Victoria & Abdul, and directing Dame Judi Dench...

Arriving in cinemas tomorrow is Victoria & Abdul, a film that tells a previously little-known story of a friendship between Queen Victoria and a man called Abdul towards the end of her life. It's a thematic follow on from director John Madden's Mrs Brown, and this story is directed by Stephen Frears. He took some time out to chat to us abou tit...

You spent the whole day talking about the film. One of the things I’m sure you’ve been asked, and I apologise for asking it, but I think the answer may inform where the rest of this interview goes. There’s an obvious similarity, particularly with casting, to Mrs Brown.

Yeah.

What was it you felt you could do differently?

Didn’t think about it.

Book Review: "Starring The Plaza" By Patty Farmer; Foreword By Mitzi Gaynor

9 September 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

“Starring the Plaza” by Patty Farmer (Beaufort Books, Hardback, Illustrated, 130 pages Isbn#: 0825308461)

One of New York’s biggest film stars isn’t even a person…it’s The Plaza, the legendary hotel on Central Park where numerous classic movies have been shot. Author Patty Farmer reverently captures the allure of the fabled place in her new book “Starring the Plaza”, which pays tribute to one of Gotham’s truly grand dames (she dates back to 1907). Cinematically, some celluloid gems stand out in our minds: Cary Grant being kidnapped there in North By Northwest, Streisand and Redford as briefly reunited former lovers outside the hotel in The Way We Were and Walter Matthau starring in numerous Neil Simon comedy skits in Plaza Suite. The wonderful anecdotes are accompanied by 180 photos, making this an irresistible addition to any movie lover’s book collection.

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind at 40 – an Appreciation

31 August 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Dane Eric Marti

Sometimes a film will speak directly to a person in an audience:  A preternatural, unearthly tendril of luminous light tapping you on the shoulder, a benevolent yet mysterious voice reminding you of an obligation, or a musical, colorful Dream Message entering your eyes and speaking to your soul with wonder, awe and truth. Like other Art forms, film can do amazing things.

For me, there are definitely a few choice films of overwhelming, pristine power. Yet one cinematic work is not just great, deeply special to me: ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind.’ Directed by the Wonderkind, Steven Spielberg, directly after his landmark suspense-adventure film, ‘Jaws’.

Now, his new flick, released in 1977, also dealt with the fantastic, with riveting moments of terror… but its endgame was something quite dissimilar.

I think it would take either a first-rate Psychologist or an Exorcist with a lot of »

Larry Sherman, New York Actor and Onetime Donald Trump Publicist, Dies at 94

30 August 2017 9:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Character actor Larry Sherman, who also served as publicist for Donald Trump in the 1980s, died Aug. 26 in New York of natural causes. He was 94.

Sherman received degrees in theater and journalism from the University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill, kicking around Manhattan with some stage roles and bit parts before segueing into a successful career as a sports journalist. He covered the 1962 Rome Olympics, and wrote for The Herald Tribune and Newsday before landing at the Long Island Press, where he worked for 25 years.

When the newspaper folded in 1977, Sherman moved to Los Angeles to take a job as head writer for the game show “The Joker’s Wild.” When that program went dark, he moved back to New York looking for work. “He began calling on his friends, and it was a guy at the New York Times, I think, who said ‘I hear this guy Trump is looking for a guy to do »

The 2017 Muriels Hall Of Fame Inductees

19 August 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The history of the Muriel Awards stretches aaaalllll the way back to 2006, which means that this coming season will be a special anniversary, marking 10 years of observing the annual quality and achievement of the year in film. (If you don’t know about the Muriels, you can check up on that history here.) The voting group, of which I am a proud member, having participated since Year One, has also made its personal nod to film history by always having incorporated 10, 25 and 50-year anniversary awards, saluting what is agreed upon by ballot to be the best films from those anniversaries during each annual voting process.

But more recently, in 2013, Muriels founders Paul Clark and Steven Carlson decided to expand the Muriels purview and further acknowledge the great achievements in international film by instituting The Muriels Hall of Fame. Each year a new group of films of varying number would be voted upon and, »

The BBC Is Turning Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Into A Series

17 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic, The Birds, is in the works as a television show over at the BBC according to DigitalSpy. The original movie was released in 1963 and starred Rod Taylor, Suzanne Pleshette and Tippy Hedren. Hedren played a San Franciscan who moves to a smaller California town where birds have started to attack the townsfolk. The new series will more closely follow the novella the original film was based on and will not be set in California but will take place in the county of Cornwall, England. Connor McPherson is set to pen the series, and it is familiar territory for the writer as he previously adapted the novella as a play in 2009. The novella has also twice been adapted for radio plays.

Hitchcock was the master of suspense, he had the ability to make almost anything incredibly frightening and as classic as Hitchcock’s films are, »

Director Alfred Hitchcock wanted to make a movie that included a chase scene across Mount Rushmore that culminates with a man, hiding inside Abraham Lincoln’s nose, being discovered when he sneezes.

The sneezing idea was silly but the chase along the famed stone monument was intriguing to writer Ernest Lehman, who was assigned by MGM to write a screenplay for Hitchcock.

The result is the 1959 classic North by Northwest, which sees debonair ad executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) go on the run when he’s mistaken for a murdering spy. Hitchcock strings together one suspenseful scene after another that puts Grant in peril — he drunkenly drives along a cliff, he’s »

Martin Landau Was a Slyly Versatile Actor Who, in Late Middle Age, Attained Greatness

19 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whenever Martin Landau, who died on Sunday, showed up in a movie or on a television show, you could count on him to add a spark — of tension, of mordant play — to the proceedings. His face, even in repose, spoke volumes, and what a face it was! In “North by Northwest,” with his sloped eyebrows and Roman-statue lips and leer of menace, he played a spy’s henchman who gleamed with officious danger. Landau kept himself still, so that you had to keep reading that face, scanning the malevolence behind it. He added another layer too: Landau, with Hitchcock’s approval, chose to play the henchman as gay, with a hidden crush on his boss (James Mason). Though the characterization fit the then-timely stereotype of homosexual villainy (this was 1959, after all), if you watch it now, it’s the subtext that humanizes the character. Landau’s eyes burn with a quality that only he would have had »
