R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

Lauren Bacall Appreciation: They Don’t Make Them Like Her Anymore

13 August 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

“Just be careful. She doesn’t suffer fools.” That was the advice a publicist gave me just before they put me on the phone with Lauren Bacall about 20 years ago. She was promoting a TNT movie, The Portrait, and as a writer-producer on The Arsenio Hall Show I had persuaded the powers that be to book her on the show — even if, on the surface, she wasn’t the typical kind of contemporary guest we often had on the show. Quite frankly, I just wanted to meet Lauren Bacall, to just hear that legendary sultry voice on the other end of the phone. So I set about doing the pre-interview and apparently passed the “no fools” test because I found her to be a pussycat.

Movie News: Golden Age Movie Star Lauren Bacall Dies at 89

13 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

New York – She had it all. Just like Bogie and, well, her. Lauren “Betty” Bacall accidentally became a movie actress, but that accident led to stardom, two marriages to famous actors and a long life of award winning performances. The 89-year-old star died of a stroke in New York City on August 12th.

She thought her marriage to Humphrey Bogart – who was 26 years older than her – would be her epitaph, but Bacall had so much more going for her through her career, she forged ahead and established her own identity. In that second act, it was the stage that became her main calling, as she won Tony Awards for her lead performances in “Applause” and “Woman of the Year” on Broadway. Her husky voiced, independent style was broadly appealing, especially in her early co-starring roles with Bogart.

Actress Lauren Bacall Dies at 89

12 August 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Another sad day in Hollywood…

From the AP:

Lauren Bacall, the slinky, sultry-voiced actress who created on-screen magic with Humphrey Bogart in “To Have and Have Not” and “The Big Sleep” and off-screen magic in one of Hollywood’s most storied marriages, died Tuesday at age 89.

Bacall, whose long career brought two Tonys and a special Oscar, died in New York. The managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, Robbert J.F. de Klerk, said that Bacall died at home, but declined to give further details. Bacall’s son Stephen Bogart confirmed his mother’s death to de Klerk.

She was among the last of the old-fashioned Hollywood stars and her legend, and the legend of “Bogie and Bacall” — the hard-boiled couple who could fight and make up with the best of them — started almost from the moment she appeared on screen. A fashion model and bit-part New York actress »

Watch: 3-Minute Supercut Retrospective Commemorating Best Picture Oscar Winners Of 1990s

31 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the awards season on the horizon, now is as good a time as any to look back on the movies that won favor with the Academy. Earlier this year, a supercut emerged highlighting the Best Picture Oscar winners of the 2000s, and now video editor Miguel Branco has turned his eye to the 1990s, with a fresh video celebrating the movies that defined a decade. And indeed, the 1990s seemed to mostly be defined by the epic drama, with "Dances With Wolves," "Braveheart, "Schindler's List" and "The English Patient" taking home Oscar gold. But the Academy took chances too, honoring Jonathan Demme's horror "Silence Of The Lambs," Clint Eastwood's western "Unforgiven" and Sam Mendes' "American Beauty" as well. Take a look a the full video below, and let us know if these winners still stand the test of time, or if you would have chosen differently. »

Career Watch: TV Provides Stepping Stone to Film for Edgy Emmy Nominees Dreyfuss, Driver, Louis C.K.

28 July 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

These days, a movie star can easily make the switch to TV with no loss of stature.  In fact, Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed work on the HBO series “True Detective” probably helped to seal the deal on his Oscar win for “Dallas Buyers Club.” But taking the leap from TV to film? That’s an iffier proposition. Just because someone is popular on a small screen doesn’t mean they will have the same impact at the multiplex. And audiences often have a problem accepting a lead of a long-running series as a different character. Here are three actors – all competing for Emmys when this year’s ceremony airs on Aug. 25 – who have had varying degrees of success with conquering film.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 53, lead actress in a comedy series for HBO’s “Veep” Signature line:  “Only that it sucked.” – Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes, replying when asked what was bad about »

David Yates' Tarzan Movie Begins Principal Photography

14 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

David Yates, who helmed the last few Harry Potter films (and dominated with them), has officially begun production on his next flick, a retelling of Tarzan for Warner Bros.  The studios announced today that cameras were rolling along with some new details on the story this film will have!  

While my interest in another Tarzan film is almost non-existent, I am keenly interested in seeing what David Yates does next.  We haven't seen him do much since Harry Potter ended, and I'm hoping Tarzan will be another amazing film from him.  From the press release:

Exclusive: Geoffrey Rush Talks ‘The Book Thief’

4 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush stars as Hans Hubermann in director Brian Percival’s big screen version of the critically acclaimed novel The Book Thief .

In 1939, 12-year-old Liesel Meminger is sent to stay with foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann, as Nazi Germany gears up for war and nationalist fever and fear grips the country. She arrives with few possessions but among them is a book, The Gravedigger’s Handbook, which she found in the cemetery when her younger brother was buried there.

At first, Liesel is alone, illiterate and afraid but gradually, with the help of her kind, accordion-playing father, she learns to read and grows closer to her family. Her love affair with books – and the power of storytelling – sustains her through the dark days as life in her neighborhood becomes ever more dangerous. She rescues books from book burnings and “borrows” them from the library of the mayor. »
