The Jerk (1979)
Macgregor-Scott died Wednesday in New York after being involved in a recent taxi accident in Manhattan, Davis told The Hollywood Reporter.
"We were like brothers who supported and relied on each other in an industry where that is rare. I will miss him dearly," Davis said.
Macgregor-Scott's producing résumé also included Carl Reiner's The Jerk (1979), The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982), Revenge of the Nerds (1984), Troop Beverly Hills...
The filmmaker looked back on some of these key influences during a conversation at the Film Society of Lincoln Center shortly before a screening of his latest effort, the ensemble comedy “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which Netflix releases later this month.

Baumbach was born in 1969, which placed on the younger end of the spectrum of moviegoers influenced by the movie brat
Our round up of horror and genre DVDs and Blu-rays returns, with some solid titles, and The Jerk sequel...
So, whilst Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump are comparing the size of their nuclear weapons and super-storms are battering the world’s coastlines, the head of Nato is describing the present moment as the “most dangerous in a generation”. With any luck, the inevitable apocalypse may bring with it some fun real-life zombie larks to bring some light to the fast-approaching nuclear winter: what more prescient documentary-drama could there be, therefore, than Re-Animator cult hero Brian Yuzna’s Return Of The Living Dead 3?
Resurrected this month on Blu-ray as part of the gloriously tacky Vestron Video Collection, the second sequel to Dan O'Bannon’s classic eighties comedy horror adopts more of an angsty nineties tone as the monster-making Trioxin chemical returns to cause havoc all over again,
As far as recent horror titles go, be sure to keep an eye out for Demon, Inconceivable, Timebomb, The Hollow One, The Evil in Us, and Safe Inside. Warner Bros. put together a quad pack Blu-ray set featuring four Stephen King classics (It, Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Cat’s Eye) undoubtedly to get everyone ready for Pennywise next month, and Paramount is keeping busy with several Blu-ray re-releases, including Clue, The Addams Family, and Galaxy Quest.

The Danger Lies Just Below the Surface. Down
Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

“She’s a woman
Marta died at his home in Bozeman, Mont., on Apr. 13 after suffering from several years of health issues, his family reported.
Born on Oct. 5, 1943 in Pasadena, Calif., Marta went on to become a founding member and the first president of the Society of Operating Cameramen — now Society of Camera Operators — from 1981-85. He was also one of the early champions of the industrywide labor-management safety committee. In 1996, he received the SoC’s Presidents Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Marta started his career as an uncredited assistant cameraman on “Diamonds Are Forever.” He later worked on such 1970s films as Tom Laughlin’s indie sequels “The Trial of Billy Jack” and “Billy Jack Goes to Washington;” Norman Jewison’s “… And Justice for All,” starring Al Pacino; and
Ahhh…so many movies, so little time to cover everything, but here are some highlights of my favorite movies of this year’s festival.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Shown poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, this classic was perfect for opening night. Brightly colored inflatable balls and lights floated in the pool like some of Wonka’s best candies as guests enjoyed snacks and cocktails on a beautiful spring evening. In attendance for this special screening were some of the cast members of the original movie. Miss Veruca Salt herself, Julie Dawn Cole; Mike Teevee, also known as Paris Themmen; and one of the original Oompaloompas, Rusty Goffe.
Along with host Illeana Douglas, they recounted some great memories of being on the set of the film in Germany more than 45 years ago.
Well, yes and no. There is, after all, still about a week and a half to go before we can put the long national, annual nightmare of the tax season behind us. But it’s also film festival season, which for me specifically means the onset of the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival, the eighth iteration of what has become a perennial moviegoing event. More and more people flock to Hollywood Boulevard each year from all reaches of the country, and from other countries, to revel in the history of Hollywood and international filmmaking, celebrate their favorite stars (including, this year, beloved TCM host Robert Osborne, who died earlier this year and whose presence has been missed at the festival for the past two sessions) and enjoy a long-weekend-sized bout of nostalgia for the movie culture being referred to when
Steve Martin in “My Blue Heaven” Just Isn’t Steve Martin
2007s' Hot Rod arrives at its tenth birthday - and there's plenty here to celebrate...
Stuntman extraordinaire Rod Kimble is about to face the challenge of his life. If he can jump fifteen buses on his motorbike – that’s one more than Evel Knievel; you can check, online – and raise the $50,000 required for his stepdad Frank’s life-saving surgery, he’ll be acclaimed as a hero. Far more importantly, he’ll also be able to kick Frank’s ass. Rod’s been mocked and bullied by his stepdad for a long time. This is his chance to prove himself as a man, gain Frank’s respect, and win the heart of his next-door neighbour, Denise. There’s only one problem: Rod’s never actually managed to perform a stunt successfully. Ancestors, protect him…
Since its release in 2007, Hot Rod’s gradually attained the well-deserved cult classic status
You wait for it, that long weekend that you know will include family, maybe some football, plenty of food, and then leftovers and sales the day after that. Everything looks great in those weeks leading up to the fourth Thursday in November, until it all goes to hell, with that long drive probably filled with holiday traffic and the drunk relatives whose opinions you really don't care to hear about. The anticipation of the holiday is fun. The drama that ensues during it is not.
His most memorable role was as beloved TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-66). The performance still resonates: TV Guide slotted him at No. 39 on its list of Greatest TV Dads of All Time in 2004.
Schallert would be familiar to many for his memorable appearance on the famous “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original “Star Trek” series: He played Nilz Baris, the agriculture undersecretary who is outraged to discover that the furry, endlessly reproducing aliens have devoured all the grain.
Schallert served as SAG president from 1979-81 and oversaw a three-month strike in 1980 that centered around rates and residuals for pay TV, videocassettes and videodiscs and included a successful boycott of the year’s primetime Emmy Awards.
