5 October 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Howard Hughes

(The following review is of the UK release of the film on Region 2 format.)

In Roy Ward Baker’s 1960s comedy-drama Two Left Feet, Michael Crawford plays Alan Crabbe, a clumsy and unlucky-in-love 19-year-old who begins dating ‘Eileen, the Teacup Queen’, a waitress at his local cafe. She lives in Camden Town and there are rumours that she’s married, but that doesn’t seem to alter her behavior. Alan and Eileen travel into London’s ‘Floride Club’, where the Storyville Jazzmen play trad for the groovers and shakers. Eileen turns out to be a ‘right little madam’, who is really just stringing Alan along. She’s the kind of girl who only dates to get into places and then starts chatting to randoms once inside.

The Duke Yucks It Up In "McClintock!"

2 July 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Duke. There was only one man like him. The craggy face and squinted baby-blue eyes, with that drawling, patient voice that commanded authority with every “Pilgrim.” Those who knew him on set said that he was a true “presence,” and not that many stars were or are. He was a cinematic titan; still holding the record for the most leads roles (142) and a timeless icon of a certain man in a certain era. With a career of mostly dramas, Wayne discovered a funny bone with 1960’s North to Alaska, directed by Henry Hathaway, who would later get the actor his first and only Oscar for the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. With two ensemble epics just under his belt, The Longest Day and How The West Was Won, Wayne moved handedly back into the spotlight with McLintock!, a western slapstick riff with good values and men being men. »

Eli Wallach (1915-2014)

25 June 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The great character actor Eli Wallach didn't quite make it to his centennial, dying at 98½ but at least he lived long enough to get an Honorary Oscar a few years back. The Academy honored him for "a lifetime's worth of indelible screen characters" even though they'd never nominated him.

I'm sure AMPAS didn't mean to include "Mr Freeze" on the Batman TV series as one of those characters but that's the one that's indelible for me. Is that wrong? When I was a child that show was always on through the magic of syndication. But Mr. Freeze was recast frequently (curiously enough two other Oscar favorites also played the chilly bad guy: three time nominee Otto Preminger and Oscar winner George Sanders). They rarely showed episodes in order so the memories of the faces get all jumbled up. 

He made a lot of career noise with his onscreen debut in »

'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' Star Eli Wallach Passes Away at Age 98

25 June 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Legendary actor Eli Wallach, best known for his role as the villainous Tuco in The Good the Bad and the Ugly, passed away in New York City yesterday at the age of 98. The actor's passing was confirmed by his daughter, Katherine.

Born in 1915 in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, Eli Wallach began studying acting after receiving a B.A. and M.S. in education from the University of Texas and City College of New York. His acting ambitions were cut short when he was drafted to serve in World War II, but he began acting in several plays upon his return to New York in 1945. In 1948, he was one of the 20 core actors who helped found The Actor's Studio, where he honed his method acting craft.

He won a Tony Award in 1951 for his performance in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo, which was directed by Elia Kazan. Tennessee Williams »

Eli Wallach Has Died at the Age of 98

25 June 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first time I probably saw Eli Wallach was in the 1960s "Batman" television show as Mr. Freeze, but I don't remember anything from those episodes other than how it looked. The first time I saw Wallach and remember him from a role in a movie is probably as Don Altobello in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather: Part III. But Wallach's most memorable role, for me at least, is undoubtedly as Tuco in Sergio Leone's iconic spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Today we learn Wallach is as we will remember him as he died Tuesday, June 24, at the age of 98. His death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine. Wallach's career spanned more than 60 years and also included films such as Elia Kazan's Baby Doll, Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, John Sturgess' The Magnificent Seven, John Huston's The Misfits and the massive ensemble »

Eli Wallach Has Died, Aged 98

25 June 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

Veteran Hollywood actor Eli Wallach has died, aged 98.

One of the stars of The Magnificent Seven and The Good The Bad And The Ugly (quite possibly The star of that movie), his death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine in the NY Times.

Wallach was well known for his villainous roles in westerns during his 60-year career – also starring in How The West Was Won and The Misfits.

His character in the movie was the bandit leader Calvera, the nemesis of the eponymous ‘seven’ gunslingers, who were led by Yul Brynner. The movie was a western remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, regarded by many as one of the most influential films of all time.

Wallach was never nominated for an Oscar but received an honourary statue in 2011 for, “effortlessly inhabiting a wide range of characters, while putting his inimitable stamp on every role”.

His other iconic role was as Tuco, »

Eli Wallach in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

He was known for his roles in The Magnificent Seven, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, The Misfits and How The West Was Won, but Eli Wallach was an actor who could turn his hand to anything, a true Hollywood great who became known as 'the chameleon' over the course of his 64 year career. Now he has died at the age of 98 and tributes are pouring in from those who knew him.

The versatile star initially studied education but found his way into acting through the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre in New York, and soon got the bug. Theatre remained his first love but he starred in over a hundred films and also found time to appear in many of the most popular television dramas of the 20th century, from Murder, She Wrote to Law & Order. He was awarded an honorary Oscar in. »

Eli Wallach, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Star, Dies at 98

24 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tony- and Emmy-winning actor Eli Wallach, a major proponent of “the Method” style of acting best known for his starring role in Elia Kazan’s film “Baby Doll” and for his role as villain Tuco in iconic spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” died on Tuesday, according to the New York Times. He was 98.

On the bigscreen Wallach had few turns as a leading man, but none was as strong as his first starring role in 1956’s “Baby Doll,” in which he played a leering cotton gin owner intent on seducing the virgin bride (Carroll Baker) of his business rival (Karl Malden). But he appeared in more than 80 films, offering colorful turns in character roles in movies such as “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Nuts,” “Lord Jim,” “The Misfits” and “The Two Jakes.”

DVD Review: Celebrate Father’s Day with The Duke

3 June 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

There is no studio that times their releases more perfectly than Warner Bros. Around the end-of-year holidays there will be gift sets for films like “Elf” and “Willy Wonka.” Near Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, you can expect gift-appropriate releases.

And, of course, they always bring out the war movies and Westerns for Father’s Day in June. This year’s gift idea is a beauty, a massive 40-film, career-spanning set of films starring the legendary John Wayne. From 1932’s “Big Stampede” to 1976’s “The Shootist,” there’s a bit of everything for Wayne fans in here, but more for those who like war movies and Westerns.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

We don’t need to go through them all but highlights include “Rio Bravo,” “El Dorado,” “The Searchers,” “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” “True Grit,” “How the West Was Won,” “Fort Apache,” “Donovan’s Reef,” and “Hatari!” Some Wayne »

Tommy Lee Jones on ‘The Homesman': Yes, It's Political

Tommy Lee Jones made two things clear at a Sunday press conference that followed the first screening of his film “The Homesman” at the Cannes Film Festival: Yes, as Sasha Stone suggested in her review for TheWrap, it has a subtext about America's expansionist policies and the historic subjugation of women. But really, he'd rather let the movie do the talking. Also read: Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman’ Is Haunted by How the West Was WonThe Homesman” is an unusual Western, to be sure. Its main character, played by Hilary Swank, is a 31-year-old unmarried woman who teams up with a drifter. »

Seth MacFarlane on ‘Million Ways to Die’ and Taking Projects That ‘Terrify’ Him

29 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth MacFarlane loves a good dare.

Directing, co-writing, producing and starring in his latest movie, a comedy Western called “A Million Ways to Die in the West” while juggling the production of four primetime series during the past year wasn’t enough for the multihyphenate. So he also taught himself how to play an exotic instrument to contribute to the film’s score.

When MacFarlane turned 40 last October, composer Joel McNeely presented him with a melodica, a mini keyboard attached to a mouthpiece that makes a sound similar to a harmonica. Attached was a note that read: “If there’s a hair on your ass, you’ll be playing this on the score, so start practicing.”
