Revisiting the Forgotten History of Pioneering Female Filmmaker Nell Shipman
Editor’s note: The following is an exclusive excerpt from “Film Censorship in America: A State-by-State History” by Jeremy Geltzer. The book, which follows Geltzer’s previous effort “Dirty Words & Filthy Pictures: Film and the First Amendment,” will be released on December 19. In this excerpt, Geltzer explores the forgotten legacy of pioneering female filmmaker Nell Shipman.

Far from the soundstages of Hollywood, Nell Shipman ventured into the wild to produce movies that celebrated independent women in exciting scenarios. Although Shipman’s name may no longer be familiar, she deserves to be remembered as one of cinema’s important female pioneers.

Nell Shipman was born in British Columbia and arrived in Southern California by 1912. She found success as a writer—winning both first and second prize in a scriptwriting contest. In the early days of Hollywood before corporate structure was set in place, several women were able to develop behind-the-scenes power.

‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Series Finale: Two Tech Industry Veterans Say Goodbye to the AMC Drama

‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Series Finale: Two Tech Industry Veterans Say Goodbye to the AMC Drama
It premiered as something of an underdog, but after four seasons the AMC drama “Halt and Catch Fire” emerged as a cult and critical favorite, mining unexpected depths of drama from its depiction of the computer industry’s nascent days. And two of its biggest fans, from beginning to end, were computer experts Jim and Janet Miller, who had an intimate connection with the world depicted by the show — because the show’s journey directly tracked with their own lives.

Jim and Janet began their careers in Texas during the early 1980s, Aka the “Silicon Prairie” era, before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1988 to work for companies including Apple, Hewitt-Packard, and Sap. (Along the way, they also raised two children: my brother Eric and I.)

As they’ve done for previous seasons, Jim and Janet (who still live in Silicon Valley) agreed to share their thoughts on

Halloween 2017: 10 Kids’ Halloween Party Recipe Ideas

  • DailyDead
While Halloween is a holiday that most of us horror-loving adults have claimed as our own, that doesn’t mean we should overlook how much kids look forward to October 31st each year. That being said, I put together 10 different delicious recipes I’ve collected over the last year from Pinterest that your young ghouls and goblins will enjoy during October. Plus, if you’re throwing the little monsters a Halloween-themed party in the coming weeks, most of these ideas are super easy to do, and shouldn’t cost you a lot to make, either.

Candy Corn Hot Chocolate

Candy Corn might be a controversial treat amongst us older folks, but I know kids still love those sugary snacks, which is why I thought this Candy Corn Hot Chocolate (via The Magical Slow Cooker) would be a fun drink to serve at a party or after a long night of trick-or-treating.

Katy Perry Had a Disgusting First Kiss

2017-08-10T13:49:26-07:00Katy Perry Had a Disgusting First Kiss

Not exactly her teenage dream. Katy Perry opened up about her first kiss — and it wasn’t as romantic as you may think.

“My first French kiss was in sixth grade in Big Bear, California. I was hanging out with this girl form church who had a bit of a reputation. She had a coed party and I was not allowed to go to a coed party until eighth grade. But I went anyway,” the “Swish Swish” singer, 32, told W Magazine on Thursday, August 10.

Perry recalled playing spin the bottle at the party and when it was her turn to lock lips, she felt like there was a “wet fish” trapped inside her mouth. “That was my first kiss,” she told the outlet. “When you’re in sixth grade, there’s no art to French kissing.

‘The Guest Book’ Boss on the ‘Freedom’ of Flexing Comedy Muscles on Cable

‘The Guest Book’ Boss on the ‘Freedom’ of Flexing Comedy Muscles on Cable
After spending two decades on network television working on traditional and then single-camera sitcoms from “Yes, Dear” to “My Name is Earl,” writer/producer Greg Garcia is breaking out of the comedy box with a new anthology comedy show at TBS.

The Guest Book” follows the guests of Froggy Cottage in the small town of Mountain Trace as they come for vacation but get sucked into the drama of the residents. Each episode features a rotating guest cast, which is not something Garcia thinks he could have accomplished anywhere but TBS, who was taking a chance on new kind of storytelling as they re-brand their comedies.

“If the only place I could have done this show was on a network, I would have because I liked the style of it, and I liked the stories. But I would have had to water it down,” Garcia tells Variety.

“These stories all came from a place of going away

Never Open the Door Q&A: Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Vito. When did you first come up with the idea for Never Open the Door?

Vito Trabucco: Thanks for having me. The idea first came from Chris Maltauro, my producer and co-writer, our camera operator Mike Bates, and me one night in a parking lot when we wrapped on another shoot. A few months prior I completed my first feature, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp. We were just eager to do another one.

Emmy-Nominated Comedy Series Production Designers Discuss Their Craft

Emmy-Nominated Comedy Series Production Designers Discuss Their Craft
Need your series to pop? Great production design that underscores tone, theme, and character is key. But while the best design doesn’t overshadow the action for viewers, designers are as devoted to detail in the construction of their sets as they would be if they were building their own homes. Variety spoke with the five Emmy nominees for production design for a narrative program (half-hour or less) to discuss the vagaries of locating pecky cypress wood, fashioning click farms in Culver City, and what happens when you relocate the White House to the West Coast. Trust them: production design is much more than putting up walls.
