Jack Nicholson has received an apology from the paparazzo who tried to "run him off the road" and then sued him when the movie star attacked his car with a golf club. The Chinatown star still regrets losing his temper in the encounter and shattering the photographer's windscreen with his two-iron. Nicholson still can't go into details about the incident because there are legal issues attached to the settlement - but at least he's had a written apology from the snapper. He tells Men's Journal magazine, "After years and years, he wrote me a letter of apology, which speaks well for him... (but) he didn't give me the money back." »
On Wednesday night, the American Film Institute revealed a new list of the 100 greatest movies of all time as part of the CBS broadcast "AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movies --10th Anniversary Edition."
With votes cast by 1,500 filmmakers, critics and historians, the AFI compiled a new list of greatest movies as a mirror to the rankings it unveiled in 1998. The qualifier in the update is that the movies under consideration were narrative films with significant American elements.
But this time around, Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull" and Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" battled their way into the top 10, at No. 4 and No. 9, respectively. In the original list, "Bull" ranked No. 24 and "Vertigo" was No. 61.
They supplanted "The Graduate", which fell from No. 7 to No. 17, and "On the Waterfront", which sank from No. 8 to No. 19
Of the 43 films from the past decade, 1996-2006, that were on the 400-film ballot, only four made the cut: "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (No. 50), "Saving Private Ryan" (71), "Titanic" (83) and "The Sixth Sense" (89).
New additions to the list from previous decades included "The General" (No. 17), "Intolerance" (49), "Nashville" (59), "Sullivan's Travels" (61), "Cabaret" (63) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (67).
