Angie Dickinson @ 80

30 September 2011 10:44 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"In the 50s, she was Feathers, the shady lady in the classic John Wayne western Rio Bravo," Stephen Whitty wrote in the Star-Ledger last year. "In the 60s, she was Frank Sinatra's wife in Ocean's 11 (and the gun moll in a couple of hard-boiled Lee Marvin classics). In the 70s, she broke the erotic age barrier as a lusty high school teacher in Pretty Maids All in a Row, a hot bank robber in Big Bad Mama and a sexy cop on TV's Police Woman. In the 80s, she was a daring — and doomed — object of desire in Brian De Palma's classic Dressed to Kill. And, along the way, she cut a glamorous swath as Burt Bacharach's wife (and — they say — a favorite Sinatra squeeze and JFK fling). And she established a reputation for slightly naughty plain speaking — although you won't find her going the kiss-and-tell route. »

Rock Hudson Was Not, Regardless of What People Say

24 June 2011 8:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

I find it surprising that some people were surprised when the fact that Rock Hudson was gay was publicly revealed back in the mid-1980s, as the actor became the best-known person with AIDS in the world. After all, even my mother knew about that. Anyhow, today's jaded crowd, looking at the above photograph, will surely assert that it's so obvious that Rock Hudson was gay. Just look at him! I thoroughly disagree. In fact, I don't see anything "obvious" about Hudson's sexual orientation in the photo. And no, I'm not blind. The guy just looks like a man — gay, straight, anything in between — doing his best to appear classy, or at least what used to pass for classy. Personally, I don't find Hudson very convincing as a "classy" type à la Cary Grant. Whatever his sexual predilections, I've always found Rock Hudson much more believable in rugged roles, such »

William Campbell obituary

20 June 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

American actor known for his roles in horror films and Star Trek

The actor William Campbell, who has died aged 87, had a long and varied career in films and on television, finding recognition from his association with several low-budget horror pictures and with the TV sci-fi series Star Trek. However, although he had the hooded eyes and languid manner of Robert Mitchum and something of the laid-back anarchism of Jack Nicholson, entry into the major league of stardom eluded him.

Campbell was in the first series of Star Trek, in an episode entitled The Squire of Gothos (1967), in which he has a field day as General Trelane, a foppish, childish humanoid, swinging wildly from joviality to sulkiness to anger. In The Trouble With Tribbles (1967), in the second season, Campbell was equally impressive as Koloth, a bearded, bureaucratic Klingon, a character that he revived 27 years later, towards the end of his working life, »

New at Tfh: Brian Trenchard-Smith on The Battle Of The Bulge

3 June 2011 12:21 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Brian Trenchard-Smith gets suitable lengthy and (as always) very thorough with The Battle of the Bulge.

The flat plains of Spain make a visually inaccurate backdrop for this sprawling but none too accurate recreation of one of the major operations of World War II, which took place across the forests of Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. It’s a nearly three hour Roadshow spectacle with the usual all star cast, efficiently showcased by director Ken Annakin.

 

Click through to watch and the read on to get a little bit of bonus content.

Now here’s a cool movie with a sprawling cast that even has some overlap to films from earlier this week, and Brian hits on a couple of actors in this commentary that we should have hit on Monday, when we weren’t singing the praises of Lee Marvin: Telly Savalas and one of the manliest manly men to ever live, »

"The Robber," "13 Assassins," "Thor" and More

8 May 2011 11:25 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"What makes Johann run — and rob?" asks Melissa Anderson in the Voice. "Benjamin Heisenberg's second feature is as taut, lean, and fleet as its title character, played by Andreas Lust and based on the real-life Johann Kastenberger, who was both Austria's most-wanted bank robber of the 1980s and a champion marathoner. Writing the script with Martin Prinz, who adapted his own 2005 novel about the notorious criminal, Heisenberg forgoes backstory and psychological explanation, structuring his film as a series of adrenaline spikes."

"Lust's character in The Robber is familiar from European crime movies," suggests Noel Murray at the Av Club. "He's the stoic loner who doesn't say much, lest he inadvertently reveal some kind of motivation. When he robs banks, he wears a thin mask that doesn't look all that different from his face, and when he goes on a date with his caseworker, Franziska Weisz, he's more amused by »

Star Trek: William Campbell Dies; Farewell Trelaine and Koloth

2 May 2011 7:47 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

An actor who played two memorable villains from the original Star Trek series has died. William Campbell passed away on April 28th at the Motion Picture & Television Country Home and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was 84 years old.

Originally from Newark, New Jersey, Campbell appeared in several movies from the 1950s through the 1970s, including Love Me Tender (with Elvis Presley), Dementia 13, Operation Pacific, Battle Circus, The High and the Mighty, and Pretty Maids All in a Row.

The latter was written by Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Campbell had worked with Roddenberry on two memorable episodes of Star Trek in the latter part of the 1960s. He played Trelane, an all-powerful being who had taken the form of a Liberace-like fop, "The Squire of Gothos." He reprised the role for the Star Trek: Judgment Rites video game many years later. »
