The laid-back, plot challenged non-violent western gets a boost in this folksy comedy about two aging cowboys with less sense than the horses they tame. Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda star together for the first time, leaving behind their older images… they’re too tender-hearted for their own good. If the sex comedy wasn’t quite so dated, Burt Kennedy’s picture might be a classic.

Broadway’s delightful — but wickedly accurate — satire of big business was brought to movie screens almost intact, with the story, the stars, the styles and dances kept as they were in the long-running show that won a Pulitzer Prize. This is the place to see Robert Morse and Michele Lee at their best — it’s one of the best, and least appreciated movie musicals of the 1960s.

With the dust settling from an Academy Awards unlike any other, we can turn our attention a bit to the results, as opposed to how the results were delivered/handled. This is something that’s probably best to take more time to think about, but I’m always fascinated by instant rankings. As such, I wanted not just to do the piece I always do on where the newest Best Picture winner stacks up all time, but also how the other main Oscar winners do. There will be expanded articles in the next month or so going over them in more detail, but for now, this is just a quick glance at where the new class ranks, all time. Before I get to Best Picture, which is clearly the big one, quickly I’d like to run down some of the other categories and how they stack up. That way, »

No wait, sorry, there's been a mistake. it's Moonlight! Our bad.
What a glorious only-in-Hollywood fiasco, and what a sublimely insane ending to an Oscar night for the ages. It was just like the end of Bonnie and Clyde: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway bask in each others' glow, there's suddenly an awkward silence, they share a moment of doomed erotic eye contact ... and then oh, the carnage. The only thing missing was some sad banjo music. The Best Picture screw-up was »
Before the big snafu (La La Land wins Best Picture … no, wait, it’s Moonlight!), the actors marked the 50th anniversary of their iconic 1967 film, Bonnie and Clyde, by presenting the Best Picture category at the 89th Academy Awards.
Sunday’s ceremony was Dunaway’s first time presenting the best picture award, but Beatty previously had the honor twice before – in 1975 and in 1990.

Shirley MacLaine’s still got it. The 82-year-old screen legend appeared on Sunday’s Academy Awards with Charlize Theron, following an appreciation of MacLaine’s classic film “The Apartment.” Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre erupted in applause for MacLaine, and she rewarded them with a charm offensive that eventually made her a top trending topic on Twitter.

A favorite of Billy Wilder-philes, Love in the Afternoon is a strong expression of the ‘romantic-Lubitsch’ vein in Wilder’s work. It’s essentially a return to the early ’30s Lubitsch comedies with Maurice Chevalier, but played in a more bittersweet Viennese register. It’s also Wilder’s first collaboration with the comedy screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond. Together they fashion the predominantly verbal comedy machine that will carry them through three or four big hits, and a few losers that have become classics anyway. »

Over breakfast, I spoke with Paul Schneider on The Daughter and how producer Jan Chapman and Jane Campion's The Piano inspired him to go to film school. We also discussed his work with Christophe Honoré, the influence of Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in Billy Wilder's The Apartment, Andrew Dominik's The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, meeting Nick Cave, and watching Kelly Macdonald and Ewan McGregor in Danny Boyle's Trainspotting to develop a Scottish accent for Bright Star.
