Best Shot 1977 Party. Chapter 1

Islands in the Stream (1977)

Directed by: Franklin J Schaffner

Cinematography by: Fred J Koenekamp

No, dear readers, quit humming.

Though this post is retro it is not about Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers' classic Grammy-winning 80s duet. Islands in the Stream is also the name of a 1977 movie very loosely adapted from a collection of possibly unfinished Ernest Hemingway stories which were released after his death under this title. I regret to inform that I had not even heard of it, the film or the book. The three sections of Hemingway's posthumous book include his previously published "The Old Man and the Sea," something I had heard of. (I'm not an animal.) 

The poster to your left begins with the tagline:

How long has it been since you've seen a really good movie?

To Have and Have Not

10 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Bogart finds Bacall and movie history is made; for once the make-believe romantic chemistry is abundantly real. Howard Hawks' wartime Caribbean adventure plays in grand style, with his patented mix of precision and casual cool. It's one of the most entertaining pictures of the 'forties. To Have and Have Not Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1944 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 100 min. / Street Date July 19, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 21.99 Starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Walter Brennan, Hoagy Carmichael,Dolores Moran, Sheldon Leonard, Walter Szurovy, Marcel Dalio, Walter Sande, Dan Seymour.

Speaking for myself, I can't think of a more 'Hawksian' picture than To Have and Have Not. »

Doctor Who: Moffat has "no idea" if this is the Doctor's mother

A fan has asked Steven Moffat if the woman from Hell Bent was the Doctor's mum. He says he has "no idea"...

You’ll probably member that, in the Doctor Who series 8 finale Hell Bent, the Doctor revisited the Gallifreyan barn from his youth and chatted to a woman from his past. This character was simply named The Woman in the credits, and was played by Linda Broughton.

A fan has written into Doctor Who Magazine (which CultBox spotted and shared online), asking showrunner Steven Moffat this: “In Hell Bent, is the old lady we see in the barn the Doctor’s mother?” 

Here’s what The Moff said back... 

“We’ve no idea who she is, nor should we. But a quick glance at the evidence, would remind you that the Doctor is a ‘high born Gallifreyan’ so that would seem unlikely. So what was he doing in that barn, »

Key Largo

27 February 2016 12:07 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Bogie and Bacall are back, but with Edward G. Robinson's oily gangster breathing down their necks -- "Nyah!" Excellent direction (John Huston) and great performances (Claire Trevor) have made this one an eternal classic. We want subtitles for whatever Eddie whispered in Betty's ear... A most-requested, or demanded, HD release from Warners. Key Largo Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1948 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 100 min. / Street Date February 23, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 21.99 Starring Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore, Claire Trevor, Thomas Gomez, Harry Lewis, John Rodney, Marc Lawrence, Dan Seymour, Monte Blue, William Haade, Jay Silverheels, Rodd Redwing. Cinematography Karl Freund Film Editor Rudi Fehr Original Music Max Steiner Written by Richard Brooks, John Huston from the play by Maxwell Anderson Produced by Jerry Wald Directed by John Huston

I'd guess that Key Largo became a classic the moment it hit the screen, »
