Otd: Babs, Shirley, and "Cool" from West Side Story

24 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this very gay day (4/24) in history as it relates to showbiz...

1873 Silent film director Robert Wiene, best known for The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920) born in Breslau (Note: other online sources disagree with the IMDb on this birthdate but it's always fun to think about Caligari)

1927 Oscar winning cinematographer Pasqualino de Santis born in Italy. Classics include Romeo and Juliet, The Damned, Death in Venice, and L'Argent

1930 Richard Donner, superstar director/producer of the 1980s, behind films like The Goonies, Lethal Weapon, and the first two Supermans. Apparently retired after 16 Blocks (2006) with Bruce Willis

1931 The Public Enemy starring James Cagney and Jean Harlow was enjoying its opening weekend at movie theaters. It was a big hit, ending in the top ten of its year. Variety claimed it was "low brow material" attempting to be high brow by its craftsmanship. If only critics knew in the moment -- they almost »

Daria Turns 20: 11 Things You Never Knew About the Iconic Show

3 March 2017 7:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ask a certain crowd of people what the defining MTV show of their childhood was, and it’s not Trl, or Real World or Jersey Shore. It’s Daria. Though Ms. Morgendorffer had been seen on Beavis and Butt-Head before, the March 3, 1997, premiere of Daria proved that the two shows couldn’t be more different. Let’s take a fond trip back to Lawndale for a closer look at the best animated misanthrope of the ‘90s.

1. B&B-h creator Mike Judge had no involvement in Daria

Judge agreed to release the character, but that’s where his involvement with the show ended. »

A Look Back at John Hurt’s Greatest Film Roles

31 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No actor was more perfectly named than John Hurt. It’s not as if the characters he played were always in pain, though more often than not, they were. Yet he was graced with a seductively layered and tricky personality — you sensed that his characters were sly, furtive, and complicated, because he was all those things as well.

Hurt died, at age 77, of pancreatic cancer Jan. 27 at his home in Norfolk, England. These are my favorites of his films.

The Naked Civil Servant

The performance that put Hurt on the map was his channeling of Quentin 
Crisp in a 1975 British TV movie. Cloaked in white makeup, with a shock of orange hair and a bombs-away bitchery as unapologetic as Johnny Rotten’s sneer, Hurt’s Crisp is effete , delicate, and merciless. The beauty of the performance is that it’s not a plea for “tolerance” so much as for the insane glory of the individual. »

A Tribute to John Hurt: A Playful Master Who Made His Inner Hurt Ours

27 January 2017 10:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No actor was more perfectly named than John Hurt. It’s not as if the people he played were always in pain (though more often than not, they were). Yet he was graced with a seductively layered and tricky personality — you sensed that his characters were sly, furtive, and complicated because Hurt, who died Jan. 27 in England, was all those things as well. And the deepest layer was the hint of torment he carried around with him. It was like the speck of sand around which a pearl forms.

Hurt was born in 1940, but he was never some impeccable boring well-mannered “Masterpiece Theatre” thespian. Over and over, he gave performances that were daring and surprising and outrageous. Comb through his credits, and it’s hard to find anything that approaches the safe, bland note of costume-drama respectability. And yet, when you think of John Hurt, the first thing you probably »
