“The Gilligan Manifesto” Up For Grabs At 2016 Afm

2 November 2016 9:22 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

  Writer-director Cevin Soling's highly anticipated documentary, The Gilligan Manifesto, is among Showcase Entertainment's newest documentaries on the roster at this year's Afm. Just one year after the Cuban Missile Crisis, radio and television writer Sherwood Schwartz began filming his comedy classic Gilligan's Island, which depicts seven Americans shipwrecked on a deserted island. Soling’s film reveals that this seemingly innocuous sitcom was actually an analogue for a post-apocalyptic world where survivors had to rebuild civilization as this was a major concern during the Cold War where many families had fallout shelters in their homes. What is even more shocking is that the society the castaways create is founded on Marxist Communism. Soling’s revelation was published in the prestigious academic journal, Americana: The Journal of American Popular Culture....

Writer-Director Cevin Soling’s highly anticipated documentary, The Gilligan Manifesto, will be the Saturday night presentation at the La Femme International Film Festival on Oct. 22 at 6 pm at Laemmle’s Music Hall Theater Venue 2 in Beverly Hills.

16 September 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What started as a three-hour tour turned into a story of love that might have been. Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island, revealed in the upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? that she had a crush on Russell Johnson - The Professor - in real life. "I think if either one of us had been single or both of us had been single, there would've been some chemistry," she says in an exclusive sneak peek at Saturday's episode. "He had the best sense of humor, he was the funniest. And he was a hunk."The »

The New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine Crossover Is The TV Event We Never Knew We Needed

8 August 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Crossover alert! Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl are colliding this October when Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and co. head to the Big Apple. "The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it," Elizabeth Meriwether, creator and executive producer of New Girl, said in a statement. "Maybe you remember 'Blackout Thursday' on NBC, or even further back the infamous Alf/Gilligan's Island crossover of the late 1980s. New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There's a 50 percent chance Alf will also »

Anastasia

29 March 2016 12:01 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

That scarlet woman Ingrid is back from exile, and hypocritical Hollywood is not complaining -- Anatole Litvak and Arthur Laurents make an intriguing romantic-psychological mystery of a bogus Romanoff Duchess who surfaces in 1928 Paris to claim the crown fortune. Good roles for Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes as well. It's a strange intersection of scandal, history and swindlers that may have found the real item... and maybe not. Anastasia Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 105 min. / Ship Date March 15, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner, Helen Hayes, Akim Tamiroff, Martita Hunt, Felix Aylmer, Sacha Pitoeff, Ivan Desny, Natalie Schafer, Karel Stepanek Cinematography Jack Hildyard Art Direction Andrej Andrejew, Bill Andrews Film Editor Bert Bates Original Music Alfred Newman Written by Arthur Laurents from a play by Marcelle Maurette Produced by Buddy Adler Directed by Anatole Litvak

Review: How long can the nightmarish vacation of Amazon's 'Mad Dogs' last?

22 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(This post has no significant spoilers for "Mad Dogs," even though it's informed by a viewing of the entire first season. The comments section is a place where it's okay to discuss the full plot if you've finished it, but I'll be doing a separate post on Monday touching on a few developments from later in the season.) Late in the first episode of Amazon's newest original series "Mad Dogs," the show's four main characters — played by Romany Malco, Michael Imperioli, Steve Zahn, and Ben Chaplin — witness an act of violence. By the standards of modern TV drama, what they see isn't particularly extreme. But they're not watching it on TV, nor are they the sorts of jaded tough guys who populate the shows where this kind of thing might happen. They're just ordinary middle-aged guys on a vacation gone tragically awry, and as they consider the blood in front of them, »
