Vegas Gunman Sent Girlfriend Away So She Wouldn’t Interfere with Mass Shooting, Her Sisters Claim

The gunman who opened fire on a crowd of thousands in Las Vegas on Sunday night sent his girlfriend to the Philippines days before his attack so that she wouldn’t interfere, her sisters claimed in a new interview.

Marilou Danley, 62, reportedly arrived back in the U.S. late Tuesday — two days after police say her boyfriend, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, gunned down 58 people and injured more than 500 others at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Las Vegas authorities described Danley, reportedly an Australian citizen who has lived in the U.S. for years, as a “person of interest” in the investigation,

Sundance Film Review: ‘Dina’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Dina’
The first time you see Dina Buno’s back, you might not notice the scars. She is changing clothes in what looks to be a little girl’s bedroom, but is actually her own. It’s an awkward moment to begin with, surprisingly intimate to appear so early in a film about a 49-year-old woman determined to overcome mental disability and past trauma to embark upon a new romance. One might even go so far as to ask whether “Dina” co-directors Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles have the right to reveal her so exposed, and yet those scars hold the key to understanding who Dina is.

The winner of the U.S. documentary grand jury prize at Sundance, “Dina” doesn’t feel like other nonfiction films. There’s none of that wobbly-camera footage to signify how authentic, or vérité, everything is — instead, artfully desaturated, static shots unfold at a slight remove,

Telluride Review: ‘Maudie’ Is A Paint By Numbers Love Story

Telluride Review: ‘Maudie’ Is A Paint By Numbers Love Story
A tender but mawkishly simple melodrama about a handicapped painter who falls in love with a misogynistic orphan in Depression-era Nova Scotia, “Maudie” would be impossible to take seriously if not for the fact that it tells a true story. Of course, just because something actually happened doesn’t make it any easier to swallow the sight of it on screen. Despite charming performances from Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, this saccharine romance — which pities its characters as much as they pity each other, and often veers perilously close to “The Other Sister” territory as a result — rings a bit false from start to finish.

Afflicted with a severe case of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that finds her holding her right arm to her ribs like a bird with a broken wing, Maud Dowley (Sally Hawkins) tells people that she was “born funny,” emitting a little giggle after almost every sentence

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year

Garry Marshall (1934-2016)

One of Hollywood's key figures passed away yesterday at the age of 81. His work in the past five years has consisted of a string of critically lambasted all star romcoms (Valentines Day, New Year's Eve, Mothers Day) and the day before he died one of the many actor he made famous (Scott Baio of Happy DaysJoanie Loves Chachi fame) embarrassed himself on national television at the Rnc. To put it bluntly, the last few years have not been kind but this is not the legacy that the beloved Garry Marshall deserves. We need to look a little further back. While he was never exactly a critic's darling - let's not rewrite history -- his work often resonated wildly with the public on screens both small and large. And that, my friends, is no small thing with or without a shelf of showbiz trophies.

Israel's Unique Oscar Submission Process Yields 'Baba Joon'

Israel's Unique Oscar Submission Process Yields 'Baba Joon'
We’ve all been mentally challenged at the movies. Not very rewarding. Being mentally challenged In the movies, on the other hand, can be the route to cash and prizes (see “Forrest Gump,” “Rain Man,” “I Am Sam,” “Shine”). For all the great performances we’ve seen involving characters who are developmentally disabled, though, they’re very seldom presented as sexually attractive or active – in fact, sexuality itself is typically left out the equation. Sure, there are exceptions—"Benny and Joon," "The Other Sister"—but if erotic attraction arises, it’s generally between intellectual equals. Which is one of the reasons Israeli director Nitzan Giladi’s “The Wedding Doll” caught the attention of audiences when it played at Toronto last month, en route to an Ophir award for star Moran Rosenblatt in Tel Aviv. In "The Wedding Doll," Rosenblatt plays Hagit, a worker in a family-run paper factory who is

Garry Marshall Tapped for WGA’s Paddy Chayefksy Award

Garry Marshall Tapped for WGA’s Paddy Chayefksy Award
Garry Marshall — the man behind “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” and “Mork & Mindy” — will receive the Writers Guild of America West’s 2014 Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television Writing Achievement.

The honor will be presented at the Writers Guild Awards’ West Coast ceremony on Feb. 1 at the Jw Marriott Los Angeles.

Garry Marshall’s filmography – from ‘The Joey Bishop Show’ to ‘Happy Days’ – is a virtual history of American television comedy,” said WGA West president Christopher Keyser. “Both of-their-time and timeless, his shows are a gentle, generous, comic mirror held up to late mid-century America. And no one is a finer or funnier chronicler of friendship – male or female (or alien) – than Garry Marshall.”

Marshall created or co-created and executive produced “Happy Days” (1974-84), “Laverne & Shirley” (1976-83), “Joanie Loves Chachi,” “Mork & Mindy,” “Angie,” “Makin’ It,” “The Brian Keith Show,” and “Hey, Landlord!”

Jump the Shark Episode Writer Bob Brunner Dead at 78

Bob Brunner, a writer-producer on the classic "Happy Days" TV show, who came up with the catch phrase "Sit On It," named Henry Winkler's "Fonzie" and suggested that the character should jump a shark in a now-infamous 1977 episode, has died of a heart attack. He was 78. When "Happy Days" returned in 1977, it was TV's No. 1 show. But then, the writers decided to set the season-opening three-part episode in Hollywood, where Fonzie is invited to take a screen test. In one storyline, he engages in a water-skiing challenge with a local kid and, as a tiebreaker, has to jump a shark in a netted area in the ocean. The phrase "jump the shark" has since come to signify the precise moment when a popular TV show begins its inevitable decline. Outside of "Happy Days," Brunner also wrote for such TV shows as "The Odd Couple," "Laverne and Shirley," and ""Diff'rent Strokes.
