Why Sidney Poitier’s ‘Stir Crazy’ Is Still the Most Successful Movie Ever Made By a Black Director

Why Sidney Poitier’s ‘Stir Crazy’ Is Still the Most Successful Movie Ever Made By a Black Director
In the history of black filmmaking, “Stir Crazy” is rarely cited as a groundbreaker or an enduring high point. However, Sidney Poitier’s 1980 comedy sold more tickets in North America than “The Fate of the Furious,” or any other film by a black director.

Poitier’s career has included multiple breakout moments. He was the first black lead acting Oscar winner with “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner;” he starred in two blockbuster films in 1967 with “To Sir With Love” (over $300 million, adjusted gross) and “In the Heat of the Night” ($177 million, adjusted gross). He was, more than even Denzel Washington or any other black actor-turned-director, an icon of cinema when he made “Stir Crazy.” And it was this film, more than any other, that found access to all domestic audiences.

That said, it’s a film that doesn’t have the resonance of other historical blockbusters like “Gone With the Wind,

'Every Which Way But Loose' Is Getting a Remake

Tell someone that Every Which Way but Loose is getting remade and they may give you a bit of an "er, which movie is that again?" face. It is an odd, easily confused title for a movie, after all. It's not as distinct as, say, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Tell someone that they're remaking the movie where Clint Eastwood has a pet orangutan, though, and they'll know exactly what you're talking about. You can't really confuse that combination with any other movie (except, of course, the sequel, Any Which Way You Can). Original director James Fargo is producing the remake, which will be directed by Anthony G. Cohen who made last year's straight-to-vod body swap comedy The Sex Trip. They haven't cast anyone in the Eastwood role yet, so this project...

Anthony G. Cohen to direct remake of Every Which Way But Loose

It looks like we can add 1978’s Every Which Way But Loose to the ever-growing list of remakes, with Deadline reporting that Anthony G. Cohen (The Sex Trip) has signed on to direct a new take on the Clint Eastwood comedy.

“I have been interviewing directors for over a year and as soon as I watched Cohen’s film The Sex Trip … I knew instantly he was the right director for this picture,” said James Fargo, who directed the original movie, and is producing the remake. “I was very impressed with his film and his directing style.”

Every Which Way But Loose follows the exploits of a truck driver and bare-knuckle fighter and his pet orangutan Clyde as they travel the American West in search of a lost love. The original film was a huge hit at the box office, leading to the 1980 sequel Any Which Way You Can.

Every Which Way But Loose getting a remake

Simon Brew Jan 24, 2017

The director of The Sex Trip is to helm a remake of the Clint Eastwood comedy, Every Which Way But Loose...

Most of the reporting we do on remakes tends to centre on Hollywood’s current obsession with films from the 1980s and 1990s. Appreciating that remakes tend to make people groan a little just at the mention of them, at least this one dates back to a film nearly 40 years old.

It’s the Clint Eastwood-headlined comedy Every Which Way But Loose, which in turn was followed by a follow-up, Any Which Way You Can. It’s the one where Eastwood plays a truck driver with a pet orangutan, and the new take on the movie is set to go into production this spring.

The director of the original film, James Fargo, is producing this time. And in the director’s chair will step Anthony G Cohen,

Q&A: It's a zoo in here.

Hello! It's your host Nathaniel checking in from a screening frenzy. I'm at the Nashville International Film Festival briefly to serve on their New Directors jury but coming back to you, dear readers, on Monday night. Meanwhile here in New York, Jason and Manuel have already lept into Tribeca Film Festival reporting.

For this week's Q&A column I asked readers for a few animal questions since Monty, my baby boy and the world's first Oscar predicting cat (unfortunately he was never a very committed pundit), has been ill. While he's on the mend (hopefully) it's hard to pull my thoughts away from our four legged friends. Herewith 9 reader questions, some animal themed some not...

James: Ever named a pet after an on-screen animal (or human)? 

My cat is named after Montgomery Clift and unfortunately the name suited him because he has been quite a moody thing from his teensiest days until now.

Phil Everly obituary

Half of the brilliant duo that transformed 1950s pop music

With his older brother Don, Phil Everly, who has died of pulmonary disease aged 74, formed one of pop music's greatest vocal partnerships. If it was Elvis Presley who became the most spectacular icon of 1950s rock'n'roll, the Everly Brothers created a musical legacy which was every bit as influential. Their unique vocal harmonies, coupled with ingenious guitar arrangements and timeless material, had a revolutionary impact on the Beatles, the Hollies, Simon & Garfunkel, the Beach Boys, the Byrds and Crosby Stills & Nash.

The Everly Brothers' breakthrough hit was Bye Bye Love (1957), still regarded as one of their most impressive creations. Up to that point, Don and Phil had been chipping away at the country music scene in Nashville, Tennessee, with limited success. Bye Bye Love topped the country charts, but more significantly soared to No 2 on the pop charts, just
