The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

7 August 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady. »

Swinton To Lead "Auntie Mame" Remake

26 July 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tilda Swinton has become attached to a remake of Rosalind Russell's 1958 Oscar nominated comedy "Auntie Mame" which "Bridesmaids" and "Bad Moms" scribe Annie Mumolo is penning.

The original is based on Patrick Dennis' 1955 novel about an orphaned boy who is placed in the care of his flamboyant, exuberant aunt who hosts frequent parties with eclectic bohemian guests. Speaking with Vanity Fair, Mumolo says:

"She [Swinton] asked me, 'Have you read Auntie Mame?'. I said, 'No, I haven't read the book but I've seen the other version of it made into a film version in the 50s.' She said, 'Would you take a look at it? I want to see if you are interested in writing a modern-day adaptation.' I said yes, because you say yes to Tilda Swinton when she asks if you want to do something.

I read the book and it was one »

Kids Now Casting ‘Mame’ and Other Musical Gigs!

3 May 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

An Evanston, Illinois, production of the classic musical “Mame” is seeking young male talent to audition for young Patrick Dennis, who’s left in the care of his eccentric Auntie Mame after his father’s death. The ideal candidate will be aged 9–14, sing as a soprano, and be a “bright, curious, precocious, adorable young boy.” The musical, perhaps known best for Lucille Ball’s film interpretation of the title role, is set in New York City during the Great Depression and World War II. Mame Dennis is a bohemian who lives by the motto, “Life is a banquet and most poor sons of bitches are starving to death.” Her life of luxury is taken for a spin with the arrival of her nephew, and together, they navigate the Depression in the big city in a series of songs and adventures.
