From the archive, 18 December 1938: Please bring vitamins for Shirley Temple

18 December 2011 6:04 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Originally published in the Observer on 18 December 1938

I am writing this letter now, so that the readers of the Observer can light their fires with it on Monday morning, and you will have six days after it has gone up the chimney to study my wants and decide what you are going to do about them. I know you will be very busy this Christmas, but in case you have time to think about the cinema, here are one or two suggestions for useful gifts.

Give back a film industry to England, just a little one. We have been very stupid, shortsighted and wasteful here, but most of us are sorry now. There are thousands of people out of work in the studios this Christmas, many of them with little prospect of getting back again. Be kind to them, please.

Charles Dubin obituary

23 September 2011 9:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Director of a string of successful TV series, including 44 episodes of M*A*S*H

There is an episode in the television series M*A*S*H in which a congressional aide comes to Korea to expose Major Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan (Loretta Swit) as a communist sympathiser. Under pressure to reveal the names of those she knew as communists, she refuses. The episode, called Are You Now, Margaret?, broadcast in 1979, was directed by Charles Dubin, who has died aged 92.

This would not be especially significant but for the fact that Dubin had found himself in a similar position in 1958, when he was subpoenaed to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Dubin denied that he was a communist and refused 22 times to say whether he had ever been one, citing constitutional protections against self-incrimination. As a result, he was blacklisted for four years, during which time he was forced to take work directing commercials. »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

We’re celebrating one of Hollywood’s great tough guys and one of our favorite actors September 6th at The Way Out Club in St. Louis with Super-8 Lee Marvin Movie Madness.

Lee Marvin rose through the ranks of movie stardom as a character actor, delivering mostly villainous supporting turns in many films before finally graduating to leading roles. Regardless of which side of the law he was on however, he projected a tough-as-nails intensity and a two-fisted integrity which elevated even the slightest material. Born February 19, 1924, in New York City, Marvin quit high school to enter the Marine Corps and while serving in the South Pacific was badly wounded in battle when a machine gun nest shot off part of his buttocks and severed his sciatic nerve. He spent a year in recovery before returning to the U.S. where »
