He plants one hardly five minutes in, based on the relatable subject of weird people you know in high school, and the self-amusement in seeing how they’ve turned out years later.

26 years ago today: Bruce Springsteen surprised an Arizona bar with an impromptu jam sesh and a big tip

29 September 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The barkeeps and patrons of Matt’s Saloon in Prescott, Ariz. probably thought it was just another normal Friday night, but Sept. 29, 1989 — 26 years ago today — was not another normal night. What made it a rather unusual evening for the sleepy town was the presence of a rock star in Matt’s Saloon: Bruce Springsteen was playing an unannounced performance at the bar. He rolled into town on a motorcycle with some buddies and wound up in a jam session with the house band. Springsteen, wearing a leather vest and a bandana around his neck, played “I’m On Fire” from his 1984 album “Born In The U.S.A.,” but when the band asked him to play “Pink Cadillac,” the rock star said he couldn’t remember the words to his hit song, recalled Denny Orr, the rhythm guitarist for the house band. Orr also said that things “went nuts” in the bar »

Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

15 September 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

“It isn’t here, you must have dreamed you put it there. Are you suggesting that this is a knife I hold in my hand? Have you gone mad, my husband?”

Gaslight plays at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117) September 19th  at 10:30am as part of their Classic Film Series

Greetings again from the darkness! Husbands were surely disliked in the 1940’s, at least by writers of movies! There is no shortage of films depicting the villainous husband targeting the unsuspecting and defenseless wife. A couple years prior to Gaslight we had Suspcion, and a couple years after, we had Notorious. The latter also features Ingrid Bergman who won her first Oscar for Gaslight, one of the more atmospheric of the psychological thrillers.

Gaslight is based on the Patrick Hamilton play Angel Street, which will be performed live, on stage at St. Louis’ own Rep Theater »

Movie Poster of the Week: Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and the Posters of Matthew Peak

4 September 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In the 2010 documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, Wes Craven predicts that when he dies his obituaries will say “Probably best known for inventing Freddy Krueger.” When he passed away last Sunday the New York Times headline read “Wes Craven, Whose Slasher Films Terrified Millions, Dies at 76,” but the second paragraph of his obit did say, “perhaps Mr. Craven’s most famous creation was the serial killer Freddy Krueger, played by Robert Englund, who, with his razor-blade glove, haunted the dreams of high school students in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and its sequels.”Though he had been making films for 12 years, starting with the Bergman-inspired Last House on the Left in 1972—not to mention a few years of making porn films before that—it was A Nightmare on Elm Street, a little indie horror film that he both wrote and directed, that made Wes Craven’s fortune. »

Oscar-Nominated Actor Theodore Bikel Dead at 91

21 July 2015 8:33 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Theodore Bikel co-starred in one of the scariest movie ever – I Bury The Living. The 1958 shocker was about a director of a cemetery director (Richard Boone) who begins to believe that he can cause the deaths of living owners of burial plots by merely changing the push-pin color from white (living) to black (dead) on a large wall map of the cemetery that notes those plots. Theodore Bikel played Andy MacKee, the Groundskeeper Willie-esque caretaker of the cemetery. It’s one of those movies I saw on TV when I was about 7 years old that terrified me. Bikel’s other accomplished screen roles include The Defiant Ones (for which he received an Academy Award nomination), The African Queen, My Fair Lady, and The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof. Theodore Bikel had performed the role of Tevye on stage more than 2,000 times! »

The Most Iconic Jewelry in the Movies

11 July 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Precious jewels have provided fodder for drama practically since drama was invented, with precious stones and trinkets used as plot devices in plays written as far back as 100 B.C. As man-made substitutes such as rhinestones, moissanite, and cubic zirconium started making the market for seemingly-precious stones more, well, precious, so did the real thing become more dramatic to seek out on film. Here are a few of the most sought after, revered and iconic pieces of jewelry dramatized for our viewing pleasure.

Heart of the Ocean—Titanic

James Cameron’s box office champ offered up one eye-popping set piece after the other, not the least of which was Kate Winslet’s greatest asset. Get your mind out of the gutter!
