1. "The Addams Family" (1991) PG-13

Everyone's favorite macabre family is wonderfully portrayed by Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Raul Julia as Gomez, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester and Christina Ricci as Wednesday. Spooky fun, just in time for Halloween.

2. "The Bad News Bears" (1976) PG

Walter Matthau is a grumpy hoot as a reluctant little league coach, Tatum O'Neal is great as the tomboy pitcher and the Bears (including a young Jackie Earle Haley) are perfectly, awfully bad.

MSNBC Shows Wrong 'Brady Bunch' Star in Reporting on Ann B. Davis' Death

3 June 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MSNBC mixed up its Brady Bunch stars on Monday. During a segment on the cable network's 10 a.m. show Jansing & Co. about Ann B. Davis' death, the cable network accidentally showed a photo of another actress who played Brady Bunch housekeeper Alice Nelson. MSNBC aired an image of Henriette Mantel, who played Alice in The Brady Bunch Movie. After returning from a commercial break, the cable network immediately corrected its mistake, showing a photo of Davis. Host Chris Jansing apologized for the error. "And there’s the Ann B.

Alice From 'The Brady Bunch' Films Pens Touching Tribute to Ann B. Davis

2 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ann B. Davis, the actress who brought to life beloved housekeeper Alice on "The Brady Bunch," and who died this weekend at age 88, has inspired numerous fond remembrances since news of her passing was first announced.

One of the most touching tributes to the late actress comes from another Alice: Henriette Mantel, the woman who donned the character's iconic blue uniform in 1995's "The Brady Bunch Movie" and its 1996 follow-up, "A Very Brady Sequel."

In an essay for Yahoo! Movies, Mantel wrote that she was at first stunned to see her own photo accompanying some of Davis' obituaries, then angered that anyone would confuse her with such an acting legend. ("Have you no respect for Brady fans all over the world?" Mantel recalled thinking when she discovered the mix-up.)

Mantel then detailed the day she met Davis, on the set of the first "Brady" movie, in which Davis had a small cameo. »

Goodbye, Alice: 'Brady Bunch' housekeeper Ann B. Davis dies at age 88

1 June 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rest in peace, dear Alice. Ann B. Davis, the actress who played loyal, self-deprecating housekeeper Alice Nelson for five seasons on "The Brady Bunch," has died at the age of 88, a close friend of the star has confirmed to CNN. Davis reportedly suffered a subdural hematoma after falling and hitting her head in the bathroom of her home. Born on May 5, 1926 in Schenectady, New York, Davis first rose to fame playing lovestruck secretary Charmaine "Schultzy" Schultz on "The Bob Cummings Show" in the late 1950s, a performance that netted her two Best Supporting Actress Emmys. To millions of TV viewers, however, she will forever be associated with her wisecracking "Brady Bunch" role, which she later reprised in the short-lived "Brady Bunch Variety Hour" and a number of made-for-tv movies (she also made a brief cameo as a trucker in 1995's tongue-in-cheek "The Brady Bunch Movie"). Davis was awarded a star »

Brady Bunch's Alice, Ann B. Davis, Is Dead at 88

1 June 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Early baby boomers knew her as Charmaine "Schultzy" Schultz, the man-hungry receptionist on TV's 1955-59 The Bob Cummings Show. Late baby boomers knew her as Alice Nelson, the eternally optimistic housekeeper on a 1969-74 slice of fantasy Americana called The Brady Bunch. But no matter the character she played, actress Ann B. Davis, who died Sunday at 88, was unquestionably one thing to all audiences: lovable. "All of us wish we had an Alice," Davis told People in 1992. "I wish I had an Alice." At the time, the actress, who was born (with an identical twin sister, Harriet) on May 3, 1926, in Schenectady, »

Ann B. Davis, known for her role as the beloved housekeeper on “The Brady Bunch,” died Sunday in San Antonio, Texas. She was 88.

Davis fell and hit her head in the bathtub on Saturday, causing a subdural hematoma, and never regained consciousness.

Ann B. Davis Dead: 'Brady Bunch' Actress Dies at 88

1 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Lynn Elber, AP Television Writer

Emmy-winning actress Ann B. Davis, who became the country's favorite and most famous housekeeper as the devoted Alice Nelson of "The Brady Bunch," died Sunday at a San Antonio hospital. She was 88.

Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner's investigator Sara Horne said Davis died Sunday morning at University Hospital. Horne said no cause of death was available and that an autopsy was planned Monday.

Bill Frey, a retired bishop and a longtime friend of Davis, said she suffered a fall Saturday at her San Antonio home and never recovered. Frey said Davis had lived with him and his wife, Barbara, since 1976.

More than a decade before scoring as the Bradys' loyal Alice, Davis was the razor-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, "The Bob Cummings Show," which brought her two Emmys. Over the years, she also appeared on Broadway and in occasional movies.

Davis considered her ordinary look an asset. »

Faith-Based ‘The Ether – Vero Rising’ Set as Movie (Exclusive)

19 March 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood veteran Larry A. Thompson is developing a movie version of recently published faith-based novel “The Ether — Vero Rising.”

Thompson is looking to go into production before the end of the year on “The Ether” as a possible franchise starter. He’s beginning to hold meetings with actors and directors.

The book, the first in a series of three novels by Laurice Elehwany Molinari, centers on a 12-year-old boy who — while living a seemingly ordinary life — discovers his true identity as a guardian angel. He begins his training under archangels and battle the forces of Evil in the Ether, the spiritual realm that surrounds the earth, while still living in suburbia.

Zonderkidz, a division of Zondervan, which is part of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, published the book last month.

Thompson’s a longtime manager and producer on such TV biopics as “Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter,” “And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story, »
