Oscar- and Tony-nominated character actor and folk singer Theodore Bikel, who originated the role of Captain von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” on Broadway and starred in “Fiddler on the Roof” onstage in thousands of performances, died Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. He was 91.

The Aftermath of Tribeca: James Franco on Adderall, Lily Tomlin as a Grandma, Jason Schwartzman with a Huge Penis, and the Wolfpack Are Coming to Your Local Theatre

31 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Of the hundreds of films screened at festivals across the nation only a handful will wind up at your local theaters, and that goes for those lucky enough to have been viewed at the growingly prestigious Tribeca Film Festival (Tff).

A month has passed, and the media has already unremembered the 14th edition of Tribeca, which had an overall attendance of 467,000 -- and now it's beginning to forget Cannes and its offerings, such as Todd Haynes' Carol, which already has a 2016 Oscar buzz surrounding it. And by tomorrow, anticipation will start growing for the Telluride, Toronto, and New York Film Festivals, and so forth. A sisyphean cycle if there ever was one. But thanks to some wise studios distributing several of Tribeca's offerings, this year's Fest's imprint might last a little longer.

There's the hauntingly exuberant documentary The Wolfpack (opening June 12th) that, pre-tff, started garnering plaudits at Sundance. »

Star Trek producer Harve Bennett dies, aged 84

6 March 2015 8:23 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Trek producer Harve Bennett has died at the age of 84.

During his career, he produced four Star Trek movies, including 1982's The Wrath of Khan.

The success of the movie led Bennett to produce the next three instalments of the series.

He worked alongside the late Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on February 27, in the four films.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan's director Nicholas Meyer said: "He was a remarkable man and he was unpretentious and self-effacing. I don't think there would be a Star Trek franchise without him.

"He rescued it. He's endangered of being lost in the shuffle, but he's the guy who figured it out."

As well as working on Star Trek, Bennett produced the TV series Mod Squad, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. »
