Screenwriter Walter Bernstein at 95: Still Front and Center

26 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ask Walter Bernstein what makes for a good screenplay, and he’ll answer you with a (possibly apocryphal) story about Henry David Thoreau. “He was living out at Walden Pond and a friend came to tell him that Samuel Morse had just made the first successful wireless telegraph transmission from Boston to Portland, or something like that,” Bernstein says with the practiced storyteller’s delight in a well-told tale. “And Thoreau asked, ‘But what did it say?’ That’s always stuck with me. With all the technology and everything else, what’s it about?”

“What’s it about?” is a question Bernstein, who turned 95 this month, has been asking himself in one form or another for most of his 65-year career, which has stretched from the early days of live television to the modern era of binge watching, and from the lionized “golden age” of the studio system to the low-budget indie renaissance. »

Watch A Young Sidney Poitier And Diahann Carroll Fall In Love In 'Paris Blues'

28 May 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

My post about Diahann Carroll's enchanting cameo in the 1961 film. Goodbye Again (Here), got me thinking about that other black and white film shot in Paris, that she was in that same year, Paris Blues. Directed by Martin Ritt, a great American director who I still think is terribly underrated (Hud, The Molly Maguires, Norma Rae, Sounder), the film is admittedly rather thin, plot-wise. More of a souffle than a full course meal. But it's made with real style, and has a wonderful vibrant feel to it, likely in large credit to a great score by Duke Ellington. And besides, what city in the world looks more beautiful in black and white than Paris? The film revolves around two »

Asc Honoree Dean Cundey Weathered Seismic Changes in Lensers’ Craft

29 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dean Cundey — the latest recipient the Asc’s highest honor, its Lifetime Achievement Award — might have started out in low-budget genre films, but his career trajectory has led him to the summit of envelope-bursting technology on such films as the “Back to the Future” trilogy, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “Jurassic Park.”

The first two were directed by Robert Zemeckis, who made six films with Cundey. “He doesn’t try to create a magnificent piece of cinematography if it doesn’t serve the story first and foremost,” Zemeckis says. “It’s all about story with Dean.”

What the two created was magnificent and had hardly been seen previously. Discussing “Roger Rabbit” (1988), Cundey, 67, says while earlier movies had combined live-action and animation, the results tended to look “uneven and a bit like comicbooks, whereas we went for a very realistic look.” He shot the film with a VistaVision camera using Eastman 5247 stock, »
