16 Famous Sally Bowles

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome…to a celebration of all the great women who've played Sally Bowles since “Cabaret” first debuted on Broadway 1966. The latest revival opens April 24, with Oscar nominee Michelle Williams adding her name to the list, but until then, let's remember all the Sallys of yesteryear... Jill Haworth Though songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb lobbied for a young Liza Minnelli to play Sally Bowles in the Broadway premiere, director Hal Prince thought she was too talented to be believable working in a dive like the Kit Kat Klub. So the beautiful Jill Haworth became the first singing Sally Bowles, making her Broadway debut in the 1966 production. Just a year prior to the production, Haworth gave us one of her most memorable performances in 1965’s “In Harm’s Way.” Little did we know what was coming that next year! But, of course, the role of Sally needed a reliable and equally talented standby, »

Michelle Williams Stars in Cabaret: See the Pic!

2 April 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Willkommen Cabaret back to Broadway! Making her debut on the Great White Way, Michelle Williams stars as chanteuse Sally Bowles in the first Broadway revival of the Kander and Ebb classic since 1998. Now in previews, this latest version officially opens April 24. The musical, which first opened in 1966 (the movie version was in 1972), is based on author Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories and set in the fictional Kit Kat Klub as the Nazis are coming to power. This production is "darker and grittier," says costume designer William Ivey Long, who also worked on the '98 version. "It's like a sucker punch. »

Armistead Maupin Remembers “Tales Of The City” and Ponders The Future

21 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Armistead Maupin

Mention Tales Of  The City to pretty much any gay man of a certain age and a smile will creep across his face. He might also offer how the books helped him to come out.

The beloved series which began in 1976 might have wrapped up earlier this year with the publication of the ninth book,  The Days Of Anna Madrigal, but the classic series continues to attract fans, not only for the novels, but also for the groundbreaking Tales of the City film adaptations.

Adapted from the first three books in the series the movies featured an impressive cast, including Laura Linney as Mary Ann Singleton and Olympia Dukakis as Anna Madrigal. Those films will be celebrated this Saturday night with a screening by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

Maupin was on the road when he talked with us earlier this week about seeing the film again, »

Why Gosling Should Take that Busby Berkeley Biopic (Clips)

20 March 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Why am I jazzed at the idea of Ryan Gosling taking on a biopic of an old Hollywood choreographer and director who is long forgotten by too many? Because Busby Berkeley was cool. He's a great, sexy subject--not unlike doing a movie of the life of "Cabaret" director Bob Fosse. (Oh, he already did it himself: "All That Jazz." Btw, there's a must-read new bio out by Sam Wasson, who's picking up screenwriting gigs.) Berkeley moved from Broadway as a 20s dance director to Hollywood, where he helped to create the movie musical genre with a string of brilliant movies for Warner Bros. Check out the elaborate camera moves and kaleidoscopic dancers in "42nd Street," "Footlight Parade" and "Gold Diggers of 1933"-- all released in 1933 alone. Berkeley, who never trained as a dancer, drilled holes in soundstage ceiling for the overhead cameras. And watch the hallucinogenic clips below (Carmen Miranda with phallic bananas! »

Warner Archive Collection unsaddles The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick on DVD

7 March 2014 10:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg reviews the DVD releases of The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick...

As much as James Garner (Murphy’s Romance) is associated with the Western television series Maverick one is reminded when watching the episodes again that other members of the family of con artists and poker players make an appearance, in particularly Jack Kelly (Forbidden Planet) who unlike Garner appeared in all five seasons.  The partnership of brothers Bret (Garner) and Bart (Kelly) allowed for a lot of mischievous antics which saw them encounter corrupt lawmen, hostile Indians, beautiful damsels, and conniving cattle ranchers.

Always quoting words of wisdom from their dear Pappy, James Garner got the opportunity to play dual role of the elder Maverick in an episode named after him; the show stars Adam West (Batman) as villain with a cowboy hat which predates his transformation into a superhero wearing a cape and cowl. »

And DS's Oscar for most fun celeb goes to... Vote for your favourite guest

3 March 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Academy Awards last night celebrated the acting achievements of Hollywood's finest, with Matthew McConaughey and Lupita Nyong'o among those ending the night with a little gold man in their possession.

But we feel that it's wrong the stars aren't rewarded for their ability to entertain us off the screen as well as on, so we've come up with our own award - the DS Oscar for Most Entertaining Celebrity - to be presented to the person who gave the best performance at last night's event - and we want you to pick the winner.

Why Was Liza Minnelli at the Oscars?

3 March 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While Lupita Nyong'o was last night's definitive fashion icon, with her flowing, low-cut powder-blue gown that seemed to be a part of her skin, there was another star in blue that received almost as much attention, but not for the best reasons. We are, of course, referring to Liza Minnelli, whose mere presence seemed to be a mystery to almost everyone in attendance (and most of the people watching at home). So why was Liza Minnelli there?

Well, ostensibly, Minnelli, who had a shock of blue in her hair to accentuate the electric blue pants suit that she wore, was there to commemorate her mother Judy Garland's involvement in "Wizard of Oz." (Pink, who also wore a dress with a plunging neckline, performed a song from the film.) Liza was accompanied to the Oscars by her brother, Joey Luft, and sister Lorna Luft (Garland's father is director Vincent Minnelli, »

Oscars Facts: 23 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

1 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 86th Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we're counting down the minutes!

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 23 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.

3. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, »

Oscars 2014: What Are the Odds of a Best Picture-Best Director Split?

26 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 85-year history of the Academy Awards is rife with statistical oddities, and one that has the potential to play out this Sunday is among the most intriguing: a split between the films that win Best Picture and Best Director.

Though conventional wisdom has long held that only one film will walk away with both prizes on Oscar night, many pundits are predicting that the awards will instead go to two different movies this year, with "Gravity" director Alfonso Cuaron expected to snag the Best Director statuette, while "12 Years a Slave" (or "American Hustle," depending on where your loyalties lie) is the favorite to win Best Picture.

While such a split has occurred just 22 times since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences started handing out trophies in 1929, four of the first five ceremonies produced a divide between the Best Director and Best Picture prizes. "Wings," dubbed the original »

News Nuggets: Judy Garland's kids part of 'Wizard of Oz' tribute on Oscars

24 February 2014 8:23 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Steve Pond reports that the children of Judy Garland -- Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, and Joey Luft -- will be part of this Sunday's Oscar tribute to "The Wizard of Oz." The legendary film was released in 1939 and is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Academy Awards producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan confirmed the news today on Twitter without revealing any details. While Garland never actually won an Oscar, Minnelli prevailed as Best Actress for "Cabaret" in 1972. The Wrap. Paul Sheehan's Gold Derby story on Monday gives you the complete list of Oscar presenters for Sunday's ceremony. Pete Hammond says that the producers have developed a theme that promises to be what they call "entertaining and emotional" with a salute to heroes (real life, fictional, and animated). He is glad that old Hollywood is "not completely forgotten" by such presenters as Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier. He adds, "Can you »

Judy Garland's Children Will Reunite for 'Wizard of Oz' Tribute

24 February 2014 3:10 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland's three children (Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joey Luft) are reuniting this Sunday on the 86th Academy Awards, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Inside the Academy Awards: How a Song Can Wing an Oscar

Minnelli, naturally, is the most famous of the Garland children. The daughter of director Vincente Minnelli, Liza is renown for both her acting (including a Best Actress Oscar for 1972's Cabaret) and singing (particularly her work in the Sixties and Seventies); she's suffered »

Judy Garland's three children — Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joey Luft — will reunite at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday night to help commemorate the 75th anniversary of their late mother's most iconic film, The Wizard of Oz, The Hollywood Reporter has learned from multiple sources. Minnelli, Garland's daughter by her second husband, director Vincente Minnelli, is a legendary actress and singer in her own right — she won a best actress Oscar, for Cabaret (1972). She was last in the headlines in January, when, at a luncheon she hosted for Dallas Buyers Club, she told the film's star,

Kelly Osbourne's Slick Hair, Tuxedo at RuPaul's Drag Race Premiere: So Hot or So Not?

18 February 2014 7:59 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Kelly Osbourne wore an androgynous look for the RuPaul Drag Race Season 6 premiere party on Feb. 17 at Beachers Madhouse in Hollywood. The Fashion Police host slicked back her lavender bob for a wet, mens-inspired style that complemented her black-and-white tuxedo. "I decided to serve some Joel Grey realness," Osbourne told Us Weekly, referring to the legendary actor's role as a creepy emcee in the Tony-winning 1966 Broadway play Cabaret and the Oscar-winning 1972 film that followed.

Beauty Break: Marisa Berenson

15 February 2014 5:36 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Happy 67th birthday to Marisa Berenson. This New York born multilingual beauty, originally a model, has been around forever and in key films, too. Her film career couldn't sustain its major start but few careers could have. Consider that in her first decade acting she made  Death in Venice (1971), Cabaret (1972), Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975) and Blake Edwards S.O.B. (1981). Tough acts to follow, no? She was never prolific, opting for the occasional TV guest spot and films here and there in various countries, but that face -- memorable and impossibly beautiful.

According to IMDb she was rumored for a Vivien Leigh biopic in the 1970s (and wouldn't that be both a challenge and a coup for the right actress?) but the film sadly never materialized.

Death of a master

2 February 2014 2:50 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Philip Seymour Hoffman has died aged 46 and a unique talent lost. We have scores of indelible performances, but there would have been such riches to come

To anyone who has heard the terrible news of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death in New York from a suspected overdose at the age of 46, I think one image recurs above all the others. It is his magnificent performance in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, playing the charismatic cult chief loosely derived from L Ron Hubbard — lordly and charismatic, convivial and yet sinister, insidious, insouciant.

And the most extraordinary moment was when he did his capering little dance, like a Shakespearian fool, in a wealthy drawing room, to "We'll Go No More A-Roving" and the scene took a hallucinatory turn, with all the onlookers appearing to be naked, submitting in that moment to his occult leadership. It was a scene only Hoffman could have carried off. »

Theatre Review: Marriott’s Too-Clean ‘Cabaret’ Conservatively Mutes Much-Needed Vulgarity

26 January 2014 2:53 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s “Cabaret” for god’s sake. It’s not “Bambi”. You’re supposed to need to leave the kids at home watching their own Disney flick. You don’t go to McDonald’s to eat healthy just like you don’t go to “Cabaret” for good clean fun.

Play Rating: 3.5/5.0

The show at Chicagoland’s Marriott Theatre starts off with so much potential because of a promise from our Emcee (Stephen Schellhardt). He guarantees we’ll delve into the sketchy world of sin in the Kit Kat Klub where we can put our real-world worries aside. It’s a “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” kind of warranty, but you never feel it realized. And that is the show’s biggest downfall.

Gravity’s Alfonso Cuarón Takes Home Top Honors From Directors Guild of America

26 January 2014 10:54 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Another Oscar pre-cursor award was handed out Saturday night.

Director Alfonso Cuarón won the DGA’s Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for Gravity. This top honor puts him in a good spot to win the Academy Award for Best Director on Oscar Sunday, March 2. The awards for 2013 were announced during the 66th Annual DGA Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. Other DGA nominees were Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips); Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave); David O. Russell (American Hustle); and Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street).

With just five weeks until the Oscars are announced from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, 12 Years A Slave, which tied with Gravity last Saturday to earn the top award at the Producers Guild, seems to be in a three-way race with American Hustle which took home the Screen Actors Guild award last weekend.

Terence Johnson’s Oscar Predictions – 1/26/14

26 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

It’s been two weeks since the Oscar nominations were announced and after most of the major guilds have announced their awards, the Oscar race has really taken shape. We’re just a little more than a month out and it’s time to take stock of the race with an Oscar prediction update.

Analysis of a Picture/Director Split

Picking a director/picture split is not a really smart enterprise. 62 out of the 85 winners of Best Picture have won along with their directors and four of those case were when the director of the film wasn’t even nominated. Particularly since the DGA has been giving awards, the winner of that prize nearly always goes on to Best Picture glory (only four winners in the past 25 years has seen their films lose Best Picture). In that same time speak, only two directors have lost »

‘Outside Mullingar’ Theater Review: John Patrick Shanley Returns to ‘Moonstruck’ Turf Via Ireland

23 January 2014 7:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The late, great screenwriter Jay Presson Allen (“Cabaret”) once described the premise for all those Doris Day romantic comedies. She called it the Df, as in Delayed F***. With “Outside Mullingar,” which opened Thursday at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater, John Patrick Shanley gives us the Dk, as in Delayed Kiss. Shanley, an Oscar winner for his 1987 hit “Moonstruck,” is back in romantic comedy land with his new play, and if the boisterous laughter coming from the Friedman is any indication, he has struck gold again. Substitute the streets of Brooklyn with the farmland of Ireland, as well as much. »
