Patricia Barry, an actress with hundreds of TV credits who was best known for her roles on soaps including “Days of Our Lives” and “All My Children,” died Tuesday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 93.

‘All in the Family,’ ‘Maude’ Writer Austin Kalish Dies at 95

6 October 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Prolific comedy writer Austin Kalish, who with his wife Irma wrote landmark episodes of “Maude” and “All in the Family,” as well as the pilot for “Gilligan’s Island,” died early Wednesday. He was 95.

Kalish’s son, writer-producer Bruce Kalish, confirmed his death in a Facebook post Thursday. “He squeezed every bit of life he had out of his 95 years here on this planet,” Bruce Kalish wrote. “You may not have known him but you watched his shows.”

Austin “Rocky” Kalish and Irma Kalish wrote one of the most talked-about episodes of comedy in primetime history, the 1973 “Maude’s Choice” episode of the Bea Arthur comedy in which the titular character wrestles with the decision to have an abortion after an unexpected pregnancy. Airing in the same year that the Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, the episode brought the polarizing issue squarely into America’s living rooms.

Jodie Foster to Receive Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award

26 September 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jodie Foster will be this year’s recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at the October ceremony, it was announced on Monday.

“It seems fitting that in this 40th Anniversary year of both ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘Bugsy Malone,’ we are honoring Jodie’s remarkable trail-blazing career at the Britannia Awards,” said Kieran Breen, chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles, in a statement. “It takes a rare and special talent to launch an international career with two amazingly different performances, and Jodie’s choices as an actor and director have continued to earn a deserved reputation as one of the most versatile professionals of our time.”

Foster’s 50-year career started at age three as “The Coppertone Girl” in the television commercial, but it was her role as Iris “Easy” Steensma in “Taxi Driver” (1976) that gained her world-wide recognition. Her most prominent roles in film have landed »

How long will the Superhero Era last? Searching for clues in the history of family comedies

26 April 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a few weeks, with the arrival of Captain America: Civil War, one more superhero film will march on the box office and swallow the planet’s culture whole. And once again, we will ask: how long can this go on? Not long ago, a person could go to the multiplex in the middle months of the year and barely glimpse a superhero. 10 years ago, in between Superman and X-Men, there was still plenty of room for pirates, cars, spies, and gangsters. 20 years ago, there wasn’t a cape to be found in the movie theaters and we made do with aliens, tornadoes, hard-charging lawyers, and Renée Zellweger. These days, however, from March to September, you can’t go near the multiplex without getting slapped in the face by an airborne cape. Nothing lasts forever, of course, but the superhero genre has already far outlived fad status. So how long »

Don’T Bother To Knock (1952)

11 April 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The icon-establishing performances Marilyn Monroe gave in Howard HawksGentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and in Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot (1959) are ones for the ages, touchstone works that endure because of the undeniable comic energy and desperation that sparked them from within even as the ravenous public became ever more enraptured by the surface of Monroe’s seductive image of beauty and glamour. Several generations now probably know her only from these films, or perhaps 1955’s The Seven-Year Itch, a more famous probably for the skirt-swirling pose it generated than anything in the movie itself, one of director Wilder’s sourest pictures, or her final completed film, The Misfits (1961), directed by John Huston, written by Arthur Miller and costarring Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift.

But in Don’t Bother to Knock (1952) she delivers a powerful dramatic performance as Nell, a psychologically devastated, delusional, perhaps psychotic young woman apparently on »

The Lady Eve Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

9 February 2016 10:11 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I need him like the ax needs the turkey!”

The Lady Eve screens this Saturday morning, February 13th at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117) as part of their Classic Film Series.

Barbara Stanwyck should have been court-ordered to keep a safe distance from any future cast member of My Three Sons. In Double Indemnity she cons the future Pa Douglas (Fred McMurray) into a deadly scheme. In the 1941 Preston Sturges comedy The Lady Eve, she messes with William Demarest, Uncle Charley himself, by whisking gullible Henry Fonda from under his protective glare.

Fonda plays the young heir to the Pike’s Pale Ale brewery fortune, who prefers spending his time chasing snakes in South America while his guardian Muggsy (Demarest) looks on. On a boat for home, young Pike catches the eye of Jean Harrington (Stanwyck) who sets out to scam the boy but winds up falling in love with him instead. »

Mike Minor, Actor on ‘Petticoat Junction,’ Daytime Soaps, Dies at 75

1 February 2016 2:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mike Minor, whose hunky, dashing “Petticoat Junction” character Steve Elliott was memorably introduced at the beginning of season four, crashing next to the train tracks as “Petticoat’s” trio of beauties are bathing in the water tower, died Jan. 28. He was 75. His sister-in-law Marlene Duerr Dedderson confirmed the news on Facebook.

After the crash of Elliott’s plane, Billie Jo asks the family, “Do you think we’ll get to keep him?” while the family stands over the crop duster, who’s been knocked out.

Steve Elliott was a character on “Petticoat Junction” from fall 1966 until the series ended in 1970. Elliott married Betty Jo on the show — and Minor married Linda Kaye Henning, who portrayed Linda Jo in 1968. (Henning and Elliott were married for five years.)

He appeared on “CHiPs” and “Vega$” and recurred in 1980-81 as Brandon Kingsley, one of Erica Kane’s lovers, on “All My Children” (he »
