So that’s it for another Strictly Week! I’ll be back next Saturday for a blessedly theme-free week, so please join me back here then; in the meantime I’m on Twitter @heidistephens if you fancy saying hello. Thank you to everyone who joined in below the line - without your sequins and glitter this dress would be a very dull affair indeed. See you next Saturday! Hx

And just to add insult to (shoulder) injury, Anthony and Oti have to do their final dance to “So Long, Farewell” from The Sound of Music, which is just weird.

Digital Spy was watching along and have rounded up all of the scores and judges comments.

1. Carol Kirkwood & Pasha Kovalev dancing the quickstep to 'Wash That Man' from South Pacific: 3+5+5+4=17

Bruno: "It's not quite a tropical heatwave, more a lukewarm breeze. You looked like you were shuffling on damp sand. It was a very difficult dance - you need to sort out the frame."

Len: "I thought that routine had far more content than previous weeks. I love the way you come out and enjoy yourself, and it made me enjoy it. A lovely bubbly dance."

2. Anthony Ogogo & Oti Mabuse dancing the Paso Doble to 'Eye of the Tiger' from Rocky: 4+6+5+4=19

Nicole Kidman Does Her Best Marilyn in Steamy New Photos, Says She Wants to Be a Unicorn: See the Pics!

5 October 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Some like it hot, indeed! Channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman covers the latest issue of Interview magazine, wearing steamy vintage-style lingerie and the blonde icon's perfectly undone curls. Looking positively ageless in the photographs, Kidman, 48, models lace balconette bras, plunging shirtdresses, ruffled hemlines, and cinched waists, all of which put her incredibly taut frame on display. The Oscar-winning mom of four spoke to the magazine about her return to the stage in Photograph 51 (about English chemist Rosalind Franklin, who contributed to the discovery of [...] »

Gay Rumors Dismissed, Troubled Relationship with Wilder: Brackett Diaries Interview with Editor Slide

25 September 2015 4:56 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sunset Blvd.': Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond. The Charles Brackett Diaries: Gay Rumors quashed, troubled Billy Wilder partnership discussed in Q&A with Anthony Slide See previous post: “Charles Brackett Diaries: Politics and Gossip During the Studio Era.” First of all, how did you become involved in this Charles Brackett project? And what did your editorial job entail? I discovered the diaries about six years ago when I was asked by Brackett's grandson, Jim Moore, to place a financial value on them during the process of his donating them to the Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was clear to me that these diaries had not only considerable financial worth, but also, and perhaps more importantly, they were primary resources in the study of Hollywood history. Happily, Charles Brackett's family (who own the copyright) gave permission for me to edit the diaries, »

Nasty Politics and Eyebrow-Raising Gossip During Hollywood's Golden Age: Brackett's Must-Read Diaries

25 September 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Charles Brackett ca. 1945: Hollywood diarist and Billy Wilder's co-screenwriter (1936–1949) and producer (1945–1949). Q&A with 'Charles Brackett Diaries' editor Anthony Slide: Billy Wilder's screenwriter-producer partner in his own words Six-time Academy Award winner Billy Wilder is a film legend. He is renowned for classics such as The Major and the Minor, Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd., Witness for the Prosecution, Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment. The fact that Wilder was not the sole creator of these movies is all but irrelevant to graduates from the Auteur School of Film History. Wilder directed, co-wrote, and at times produced his films. That should suffice. For auteurists, perhaps. But not for those interested in the whole story. That's one key reason why the Charles Brackett diaries are such a great read. Through Brackett's vantage point, they offer a welcome – and unique – glimpse into the collaborative efforts that resulted in »

[Tiff Review] The Women He’s Undressed

25 September 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A performative exploration of Australia’s own Orry-Kelly, perhaps most infamously known as Cary Grant’s lover, Women He’s Undressed is a playful look at the man behind the costumes worn by Marilyn Monroe, Betty Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Rosalind Russell, and Errol Flynn, amongst other legends of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The film’s story is told via an electrifying mix of first-person interviews, performances of Orry-Kelly’s letters, and archival materials, including clips from his films Some Like It Hot, The Maltese Falcon, Les Girls, and Arsenic and Old Lace.

The film’s charms exist in the performative elements contextualized amongst the film’s interviewees. Director Gillian Armstrong (known for her narrative films Little Women and Oscar and Lucinda) paints a picture partially routed in national pride, about a small town boy from rural New South Wales who makes good in Hollywood. The fragmented nature of the narrative »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Women He’s Undressed’

16 September 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nothing against production designer Ross Wallace, but if a documentary film needs a production designer at all, it’s a sure sign something’s afoot. Such is the case with “Women He’s Undressed,” the first film in five years from Gillian Armstrong, whose 1979 feature debut, “My Brilliant Career” was a defining moment in the Australian New Wave. An illuminating and involving portrait of the prolific, Down Under-born and Oscar-winning costume designer Orry-Kelly, whose crowning achievement was that gravity-defying gown Marilyn Monroe fills out admirably in Billy Wilder’s “Some Like it Hot,” the film overstays its welcome by punctuating his story with ill-advised dramatic fantasy sequences that are meant to illustrate the anguish of a gay man in mid-century America, but come across as heavy-handed and mean-spirited. Armchair Hollywood historians and fans of the artist’s films will be drawn to the subject, but in the end it feels »

Billy Wilder directed Sunset Blvd. with Gloria Swanson and William Holden.

Interview: David Spaltro Talks In The Dark

21 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

David Opie sits down with director David Spaltro to talk about his new horror movie In the Dark…   

David Opie: Hi David. Thanks for talking to us at Flickering Myth. In the Dark is a great indie horror, something’s that all too rare these days. What inspired you to make a horror film for your third feature?

David Spaltro: It was sort of just fortuitous timing, really. I had been in development on a third feature film Wake Up in New York, and slated to go into production in Spring 2014, but that Winter hit a financing snag that sort of put the breaks on it at the time. I was a little burned out after all that work, and not sure if I should take a break and go back to trying to get that back up again, or look at a different project, when I was contacted »

Masters of Cinema Cast – Episode 42 – The Lost Weekend

21 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

We’ve all had them; but I dare say not many like this as Joakim and Sam Hutchinson from Cinema Etc talk about Billy Wilders The Lost Weekend.

From Masters of Cinema:

Directed by Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity, Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot), this gut-wrenching adaptation of Charles Jackson’s The Lost Weekend horrified its studio, was rejected by test audiences, and was lobbied by temperance groups, yet went on to huge success and became the awards sensation of its year.

Ray Milland stars as Don Birnam, a New York author struggling with years of alcoholism and writer’s block. Trying to keep him on the path to rehabilitation are his straight-laced brother Wick (Philip Terry) and devoted long-time girlfriend Helen (Jane Wyman). When Don absconds from a country excursion, he embarks on a four-day binge, spiralling towards rock bottom.

Tiff 2015 adds to their Documentary and Vanguard lineup

11 August 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Toronto International Film Festival’s prominence on the festival circuit has only grown over the years, with films from numerous different fields having gone on to critical and commercial acclaim. Among the festival’s different categories are Tiff Docs and Vanguard. Tiff Docs allows documentaries to get their own spotlight at the festival, giving acclaimed documentarians such as Michael Moore and Frederick Wiseman a platform for their films. The Vanguard section, on the other hand, showcases films that aren’t easily categorisable into a specific genre. With the Canadian Films lineup announcement having revealed the first set of films playing in each group, Tiff today revealed more of the lineup in each section. The list of newly announced films, with their official synopses, is as follows.

Cheers to Marilyn Monroe, Died Today in 1962; Watch Her Iconic Moments

5 August 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her home of barbiturate poisoning on this day in 1962, but her status as the Hollywood sex symbol hasn't died. What was it about her? Billy Wilder, who directed her arguably most iconic performance in "Some Like It Hot," said she had a "certain indefinable magic"—and that's what lingers in her very best films ("Gentleman Prefer Blondes" and "Hot" among them) and even in the lesser pictures. As unpacked in Liz Garbus' moving HBO documentary "Love, Marilyn," the actress kept a cache of personal diaries and letters that revealed a woman in trouble, a far more tormented interior life than reflected in the blonde comic persona audiences (and scripts and directors) sometimes ascribed to her. "The fuzzy end of the lollipop," as it were. Read her 1962 obit, and watch some of our favorite Marilyn clips below: She spent her last day alive sunbathing, »

Marilyn Monroe: Nine Years of Stardom and a Legacy That Won’t Quit

5 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

August 5 marks the anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death in 1962. Few Hollywood stars have created such a powerful legacy based on such a small, brief output: starring roles in 11 films, released during a nine-year period.

Fox ran an ad in Daily Variety in 1952, the year Monroe starred in “Don’t Bother to Knock,” proclaiming her “a new star.” Studios often took out ads to promote contract players and 20th Century Fox was building her career, so the promo wasn’t unusual. However, in her case, the words sound more factual than hype.

Her big breakthrough occurred in 1953, when she starred in “Niagara,” “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” all for Fox. From that point until her death, at age 36, she was the hottest thing in Hollywood.

In “Conversations With Wilder,” director Billy Wilder told Cameron Crowe that he didn’t like working with her. In 1955’s “The Seven Year Itch, »

How Many of These Movies Have You Seen?

3 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When the most recent Sight & Sound Top 100 list came out in 2012, there weren’t many surprises beyond the headline-ready replacement of Citizen Kane by Vertigo at the #1 spot. There was a brief, furious flash of articles contemplating what it really meant to be the best movie ever made and whether Hitchcock’s story of obsession masquerading as love really qualified. Being called the greatest makes you an easy target. Landon and I worked our way through the first fifty films on the list, exploring the Holden Caulfield of Paris, the secret gay agenda of Some Like it Hot, the unfathomable history of Shoah, a silent superhero movie, the bleakest movies about childhood and many, many more. It took us two years, and that was at least partially aided by the fact that I’d seen almost all of them already (Landon may have already seen all fifty). Finding something “new” was a rare treat, a »

BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »
