The Forgotten Auteur: Bob Fosse

7 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Most people today would likely be shocked to think that in 1972, The Godfather went into the Oscars anything but a sure bet for Best Picture. Aside from Casablanca and Citizen Kane it is recognized as the greatest American film of all time and in hind sight most people forget that not only was it tied for nominations in 1972, but Coppola lost Best Director.

Because hindsight is anything but 20/20 when popular consensus takes over, the narrative of the Hollywood Renaissance is one of Scorsese, Spielberg and Lucas getting snubbed for Taxi Driver, Jaws, Close Encounters, and Star Wars. But looking at the 1970s and the race for Best Director, what you see instead is two directors fighting it out for director of the decade, each earning three nominations.

Obviously one of them is Francis Ford Coppola. With both Godfathers, The Conversation, and, Apocalypse Now most people would say that he won that fight. »

Win Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on Blu-ray

7 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on 7th July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

First they faked his death and gave him a new identity. Now a top secret organisation is training a former New York cop to combat corrupt forces operating outside of the law. His mentor, Chiun, is an ageing Korean master of the martial arts who can run on water and dodge speeding bullets.

Born on the pages of Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series of men’s adventure novels, Remo Williams was placed in the capable hands of Bond director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, The Man with the Golden Gun) for his big-screen outing. Fred Ward (Tremors) plays the trainee assassin, with Academy Award-winner Joel Grey (Cabaret) occupying the role of Chiun.

With its classic set-piece atop the Statue of Liberty, much-loved score by Craig Safan »

Liza Minnelli's Rep Sends Shia Labeouf Cabaret Film DVD After Arrest

30 June 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Shia Labeouf may have been dragged out of the Broadway performance of Cabaret on Thursday, June 26, but the troubled actor doesn’t have to worry about seeing what happens to young Sally Bowles. Scott Gorenstein, the rep for Liza Minnelli, who won her sole Oscar for portraying the lead character Sally Bowles in the 1972 film adaptation of the Tony-winning musical, sent the Fury actor, 28, the DVD of the musical.  “I figured he may want to find out how it ends,” Gorenstein told Us Weekly.   The Broadway [...] »

Meme: Luke Evans Dons Leather Pants As Dracula, Matt McGorry Tweets #NoHomo From NYC Pride Float, Tim Cook Attends Sf Pride

The UK has a sperm shortage, Constantine can’t smoke on TV, catching up with the Queer As Folk cast

While most reports say that the cast of Orange Is the New Black owned NYC Pride on their float, the sexy Matt McGorry is under fire for tweeting about it with a #NoHomo hashtag, and caught the appropriate amount of crap for it. McGorry says that it was a joke and the fact that he’s on a Pride float should make that obvious. All may be forgiven as a fan tweeted at him that he should tweet nudes to make up for it, and McGorry responded “Fair is fair.”

There is a sperm shortage in the UK. I’m not claiming that UK men are less virile, but they aren’t sharing what they’ve got with sperm banks thanks to a law that allows the offspring to learn »

James Nelson, a sound editor, supervising sound editor and producer for film and television with more than 180 credits, including “Easy Rider,” “Five Easy Pieces,” “The Exorcist” and “American Graffiti,” has died. He was 82.

Director Monte Hellman, on whose classic 1971 film “Two-Lane Blacktop” Nelson worked, said, “He was one of my closest, dearest friends. He’s worked on all my movies. His first work was in sound editing and he did that on all my movies and even on the last one, ‘Road to Nowhere,’ he came in as a consultant just to make sure everything was right because I just wouldn’t do anything without his approval.”

Nelson was the supervising sound editor, often uncredited, on some of the classics of 1960s and ’70s cinema: Richard Rush’s film “Psych-Out” and Rafelson’s classic “Head,” both in 1968; “Easy Rider” in 1969; Rafelson’s “Five Easy Pieces”; Dalton Trumbo’s “Johnny Got His Gun »

‘Jersey Boys’ Cast Talk Movie Musicals, Dream Casting Zac Efron

10 June 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Warner Bros. bigscreen adaptation of “Jersey Boys” hosted its New York premiere on Monday night just a few blocks north of the Broadway stage where the Tony-winning musical debuted in 2005. A pre-party at the Angelo Galasso House inside the Plaza Hotel included a crowd of theater groupies (Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin), stars (Alan Cumming and Reeve Carney) and other staples from the music world (Clive Davis).

Director Clint Eastwood, sporting a grizzly beard, introduced the film at the Paris Theatre, explaining he’d never seen the hit play about the Four Seasons until the project came to him. He then attended three different versions of the show. “I ended up here on Broadway seeing it,” Eastwood told the crowd. “You’ll see some of the original players. For the most part we tried to keep all the originals from different companies. It was a great privilege for me »

Life Is Just One Delicious...

29 May 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Cabaret has always been a groundbreaking musical, dating back to Harold Prince’s original production in 1966.  When Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s production opened at Studio 54 in 1998, it built upon what Prince started and pushed the limits even further, creating a much raunchier, seedier, darker, and more dangerous trip to the cabaret.  Mendes and Marshall have once again brought their Cabaret back to Studio 54, and it remains a brilliant production of a great musical, one that manages to be hugely entertaining, funny, charming, and moving, while at the same time threatening in its depiction of the growing storm created by the rise of the Nazis in Berlin in 1930.  Dominated once again by the exceptional performance of Alan Cumming as the Emcee, Cabaret is a welcomed addition to any Broadway season, and it was great to have the chance to revisit this bold production.

Cumming has lost none of his mischievous edge on stage. »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: All That Jazz

20 May 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 26, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

It's showtime for Roy Scheider in All That Jazz.

The preternaturally gifted director and choreographer Bob Fosse (Cabaret) turned the camera on his own life for the madly imaginative, self-excoriating 1979 musical drama All That Jazz.

Roy Scheider (Jaws, Sorcerer) gives the performance of his career as Joe Gideon, whose exhausting work schedule—mounting a Broadway production by day and editing his latest movie at night—and routine of amphetamines, booze, and sex are putting his health at serious risk. Fosse burrows into Gideon’s (and his own) mind, rendering his interior world as phantasmagoric spectacle.

Assembled with visionary editing that makes dance come alive on-screen as never before, and overflowing with sublime footwork by the likes of Ben Vereen (Mama, I Want to Sing), Leland Palmer, Sandahl Bergman (Conan the Barbarian) and the awesomely leggy Ann Reinking, All That Jazz »

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 20-11

18 May 2014 9:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The clear difficulty of identifying the definitive movie musicals is separating the musical itself from the film version. The Phantom of the Opera is, without a doubt, a top ten definitive stage musical. Movie musical? Not so much. Drawing a clear line between the two is what makes this list a little trickier. For this segment of the list, we have musicals that have no stage version, two Best Picture winners, a Palme d’Or winner, and a few musicals that may stretch the term a bit.

​'Gaslight': 7 Everlasting Legacies of the Ingrid Bergman Classic

9 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

1. The term "gaslight." The Ingrid Bergman thriller "Gaslight" -- released 70 years ago this week, on May 4, 1944, wasn't the original use of the title. There was Patrick Hamilton's 1938 play "Gas Light," retitled "Angel Street" when it came to Broadway a couple years later. And there was a British film version in 1939, starring Anton Walbrook (later the cruel impresario in "The Red Shoes") and Diana Wynyard.

Still, the glossy 1944 MGM version remains the best-known telling of the tale, with the title an apparent reference to the flickering Victorian lamps that are part of Gregory's (Charles Boyer) scheme to make wife Paula (Bergman) think she's seeing things that aren't there, thus deliberately undermining her sanity in order to have her institutionalized so that he'll be free to ransack the ancestral home to find the missing family jewels.

This version of Hamilton's tale was so popular that it made the word "gaslight"into a verb, »

Heath Ledger: The Top 25 (Best Supporting Actor)

28 April 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Continuing on with this weekly series I’m doing for the site, we’re in the midst of talking the top 25 Oscar winners in just about every single one of the Academy Award categories. Aside from the shorts and something a bit harder to rank like Best Sound Editing or Mixing as I mentioned previously, I’ll be hitting them all over the coming weeks and months, including of course the big eight categories. Today I’ll be going ahead and knocking off another of those rather big ones, the ever interesting Best Supporting Actor category. As always, depending on the category in question, I may wind up discussing the individual winners I’m citing specifically or just give more of a broad overview of the winners, but I’m keeping it simple for this one and will focus on the list. Like I’ve said each week though, in all honesty, »

Theater Review: Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming Come (Back) to the Cabaret

24 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As originally imagined by the book writer Joe Masteroff and the songwriting team of Kander and Ebb, Cabaret was going to be a naturalistic musical. Loosely based on Christopher Isherwood’s novella Goodbye to Berlin and its subsequent dramatic incarnation as I Am a Camera, it would tell the now-familiar story of Sally Bowles, a not-very-talented English nightclub singer living in “divine decadence” on the precipice of the Nazi calamity. It would also touch on the lives of other Berliners whom Isherwood (called Clifford Bradshaw in the musical) met as an English tutor and lightly fictionalized, including his spinster landlady and her outré tenants. These characters would act and sing in much the same way characters had acted and sung since Show Boat.But somewhere along the way, the director, Hal Prince, had an idea — what we now grandiosely call a concept — that would change not only Cabaret but the »

‘Cabaret’ Theater Review: Michelle Williams Tackles Sally Bowles, Alan Cumming Auditions for ‘Hedwig’

24 April 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Kit Kat boys are a bit buffer, the girls are a lot less bruised, and the old Emcee has returned to audition for the replacement star of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Those are the minor changes Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall have made in their current staging of “Cabaret,” which ran for six years (1998-2004) at the Roundabout Theatre Company and reopened Thursday at Studio 54. The beauty of their strong, durable concept is that it allowed myriad casts to come and go without radically affecting the brilliance of Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb's show within. »

Cabaret: Theater Review

24 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York -- When news surfaced that Roundabout Theatre Company was planning a return engagement of its wildly successful 1998 Cabaret revival just ten years after it closed, some pundits wondered if it was too soon. Rubbish. For one thing, this audacious Brechtian musical set against the rise of Nazism in Weimar-era Berlin will always be relevant, and its glittering score by John Kander and Fred Ebb ranks among Broadway's finest. For another, there's simply no wrong time to revisit Sam Mendes' and Rob Marshall's thrilling production, which is even sharper this time around with Alan Cumming reprising his louche

80 Reasons Shirley MacLaine Is One-of-a-Kind, in Honor of Her 80th Birthday

24 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy 80th birthday, Shirley MacLaine!

The legendary, award-winning actress, who was born April 24, 1934 in Richmond, Va, started out as a dancer and got her big break on Broadway. She made her first film with Alfred Hitchcock, became a Rat Pack regular, flirted briefly with politics but has never stopped acting as she enters her 7th decade in Hollywood.

She started off as a lovably kooky ingenue, but is known today for her cantankerous matriarch roles in "Downton Abbey," "Bernie," "Steel Magnolias," "Guarding Tess," and, of course, her Oscar-winning role as Aurora Greenway in "Terms of Endearment."

Her next gig is a singing and dancing role on "Glee," of course. Happy Birthday to one of the most talented, most colorful character actresses of all time.

1. She was named after Shirley Temple.

2. She's been performing since age 3, when she began doing ballet.

3. As a girl, she pretended she was Rita Hayworth, since »

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, »

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.

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. »
