Review: "A Fine Pair" (1968) Starring Rock Hudson And Claudia Cardinale; Warner Archive DVD Release

18 April 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

The seemingly promising teaming of Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale, both at their most glamorous back in 1968, goes hopelessly astray in the comedy/crime caper film "A Fine Pair". The movie is the kind of lazy effort that makes one suspect the only motives for the stars' participation were quick, sizable paychecks and the opportunity to enjoy some exotic locations at the studio's expense. (Think "Donovan's Reef" without the fun.) The film opens in New York City and we find Hudson as NYPD Captain Mike Harmon, a conservative, no-nonsense career police officer who runs his precinct with the same strong-arm tactics that General George S. Patton employed to keep his troops in line. Out of nowhere pops Esmeralda Marini  (Cardinale), a glamorous and almost annoyingly perky young woman who has arrived unannounced from her native Italy. Turns out she has known Harmon most of her life as »

Why are Debra Winger and Sam Elliott doing a multi-cam sitcom for Netflix?

30 March 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Through long, varied, and successful careers in show business, Debra Winger and Sam Elliott have done a little bit of everything. She was one of the world's biggest movie stars in the '80s thanks to films like An Officer and a Gentleman and Terms of Endearment, but she also played Wonder Girl on the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman series, did stand-up comedy at the start of her career, and was one of the final patients on HBO's In Treatment. Elliott was a late-period castmember on the Mission: Impossible TV show, has played dozens of heavies and heroes in the movies, and even turned up clean-shaven on the final season of Justified. Starting Friday, though, you'll get to see them do something they've never done before: act in a traditional multi-cam sitcom, shot on a stage in front of a studio audience. In Netflix's The Ranch(*), they play an estranged »

Howard Berk, a novelist, producer and screenwriter, died in Los Angeles on March 27 of natural causes. He was 91.

Japan’s Village launches 'Asura', 'Midare Uguisu'

14 March 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two productions being introduced to buyers at Hong Kong Filmart.

Japan’s Village Inc. is launching sales on samurais-battling-demons story Asura and avenging samurai love story Midare Uguisu at Filmart.

The films are part of Geki Cine’s portfolio which, motivated by fans who complained their star-powered stage plays’ runs were too limited, started shooting the productions two times each with 20 HD cameras, and then doing post-production including sound mixing and special effects at Warner Brothers.

Hiroyuki Hata, director of International Operations at Village Inc. said: “The productions have much more work in them than your average independent film. For instance, top notch sound mixing by BAFTA winner Mike Prestwood Smith, who has worked on films such as Casino Royale and Mission: Impossible

Directed by Hidenori Inoue and written by Kazuki Nakashima (Kill La Kill), Asura stars Somegoro Ichikawa (Semishigure), Yuki Amami (Amalfi), Tsuyoshi Ihara (Thirteen Assassins).

Midare Uguisu as a film is in pre-production with Izumi Inamori »

George Gaynes, ‘Punky Brewster’ and ‘Police Academy’ Star, Dies at 98

16 February 2016 6:52 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Gaynes, who portrayed an irritable foster parent on the ’80s sitcom “Punky Brewster,” the bewildered commandant in seven “Police Academy” films and a soap opera star with a crush on Dorothy Michaels, whom he doesn’t know is Dustin Hoffman’s character in drag, in the hit feature comedy “Tootsie,” died on Monday in North Bend, Wash. He was 98.

Gaynes, who was not only a character actor but a baritone singer, made hundreds of appearances both on TV comedies and dramas, as well as 35 films (counting both features and and made-for-tv movies) and many plays, musical comedies and even operas in the U.S. and Europe.

While Gaynes became immediately recognizable to TV viewers and filmgoers, he never achieved name recognition, let alone stardom.

On “Punky Brewster,” Gaynes played building manager Henry Warnimont, who finds an abandoned girl (Soleil Moon Frye) and becomes her foster parent and eventually her adoptive father. »

Alan Rickman, 'Die Hard,' and the commitment of being a classic movie villain

14 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Galaxy Quest" was far from the most famous Alan Rickman movie, but it may feature his most autobiographical role. As Alexander Dane, a classically trained Shakespearean actor (who's constantly boasting of the five curtain calls he received for playing Richard III) forever typecast as the alien warrior he played on a cult classic TV show, Rickman was riffing not only on Leonard Nimoy's difficult relationship with Mr. Spock from "Star Trek," but also on the strange and wonderful nature of his own career. Rickman, who died today at 69 from cancer, studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and gained acclaim for his role as the Vicomte de Valmont in the 1985 Broadway production of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses." And while he did spectacular and nuanced work in more highbrow films like "Sense and Sensibility" and "Truly Madly Deeply," the bulk of his fame came from a pair of genre pieces: the first "Die Hard, »
