Anna Massey obituary

6 July 2011 9:48 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Award-winning actor with a fastidious intelligence and a hint of inner steel

Anna Massey, who has died of cancer aged 73, made her name on the stage as a teenager in French-window froth. She then graduated, with effortless and extraordinary ease, to the classics and to the work of Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter and David Hare. In later years, she became best known for her award-winning work in television and film. What constantly impressed was her fastidious intelligence and capacity for stillness: always the mark of a first-rate actor.

Born in Thakeham, West Sussex, she was bred into show business although, in personal terms, that proved something of a mixed blessing. Her father was Raymond Massey, a Canadian actor who achieved success in Hollywood; her mother was Adrianne Allen who had appeared in the original production of Noël Coward's Private Lives. Anna's godfather was the film director John Ford.

4 July 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Anna Massey, a Tony nominee who played supporting roles in more than 40 movies, died of cancer on Sunday, July 3, in London. Massey was 73. The daughter of Academy Award nominee Raymond Massey (Abe Lincoln in Illinois) and sister of another Oscar nominee, Daniel Massey (Star!), Anna Massey began her acting career in the late '50s.

Directed by Vincente Minnelli, the movie version starred Sandra Dee as an Americanized version of the role Massey had originated in the West End and on Broadway. Massey's first film appearance also took place in 1958, in John Ford's crime drama Gideon's Day, starring Jack Hawkins.

Actress Massey Dies

4 July 2011 9:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actress Anna Massey has died at the age of 73.

She passed away on Sunday after a battle with cancer.

Her agent says in a statement, "She will be remembered as a loving wife and mother, a cherished grandmother, a generous colleague and, always, a consummate professional. She will be greatly missed."

Massey was born into a showbusiness family - her father was famed Canadian-born actor Raymond Massey and her mother was British actress Adrianne Allen, while legendary director John Ford was her godfather.

She began her career on the stage and her big break came when she landed a role in Alfred Hitchcock's 1972 movie Frenzy.

Massey went on to star opposite her actor brother Daniel in 1973's The Vault of Horror, in which they played siblings, while her other major roles included her BAFTA-winning portrayal of a lonely spinster in a 1986 TV adaptation of Hotel du Lac.

She also starred in the 2002 adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Importance Of Being Earnest with Reese Witherspoon, and landed a role opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in 2002's Possession, as well as appearances in British TV shows Poirot and Midsomer Murders.

Massey was awarded a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (Cbe) for services to acting in 2004 and is survived by her second husband, Russian scientist Uri Andres, and her son, writer David Huggins, from her first marriage to actor Jeremy Brett. »

Yet Massey looks set to be best remembered for her roles in two of the most controversial pictures of post-war British cinema. In 1960 she played Helen, the sweet-natured friend of a serial killer in Michael Powell's notorious Peeping Tom. In 1972, she was cast as sacrificial barmaid Babs Milligan in Hitchcock's grubby, London-set thriller Frenzy. Peeping Tom found itself reviled by contemporary critics as "perverted" and "beastly", while Frenzy remains the only Hitchcock film to receive a prohibitive X-certificate in the UK. Today, both films are widely regarded as classics. »

Cannes 2011: Neil Labute turns his macabre hand to Agatha Christie

15 May 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

American director promises 'a good romp and a cracking yarn' in film version of The Crooked House

Neil Labute has carved a career from seriously disturbing plays and films – In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things – that plunge deep into the American male psyche and find it to be damaged, selfish and brutal.

But now the writer and director is turning to a gentler, politer and certainly more English material: Agatha Christie. And, he says, he promises "a good romp and a cracking yarn".

Labute is to direct a film of Christie's novel The Crooked House, with a screenplay adapted by Julian Fellowes, of Gosford Park and Downton Abbey fame. Though Labute has ventured into period drama once before – Possession, the As Byatt novel whose adaptation he directed, flips between the 19th and 20th centuries – he is certainly more associated with dystopian urban fables than the tinkling tea-cups »

Aaron Eckhart to Reunite With 'In The Company of Men' Director Neil Labute on 'The Geography of Hope'

9 May 2011 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

Director Neil Labute and actor Aaron Eckhart ('The Dark Knight') both came to national attention with 'In the Company of Men,' Labute's searing drama about a misogynist (Eckhart) who, along with a fellow business executive, seeks revenge on all women by ruining the life of an innocent.

The director and actor have worked together several times since, including the 1998 couples drama 'Your Friends & Neighbors' and 2002's 'Possession,' about two scholars investigating the affair of two Victorian poets. Now, Labute will again direct Eckhart in the drama 'The Geography of Hope,' according to the L.A. Times.

Set in the 1970s, 'Hope' is about two thieves (Eckhart and Ed Harris) who flee to Baja, Mexico, after a robbery goes wrong. In Baja, they meet several women and are torn between their romantic feelings for them and their natural instinct to grift them. »

Aaron Eckhart Is Back In The Company Of Neil Labute For The Hope Of Geography

8 May 2011 1:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Aaron Eckhart broke out 14 years ago with a memorably slimy role in Neil Labute’s sinisterly fun classic In The Company of Men, and although their follow-up collaborations Your Friends & Neighbors and Possession never did recapture that early magic, it’s still exciting to hear that the former Brigham Young University pals are getting ready to team up together again.

The Indie movie in question is The Hope of Geography and 24 Frames say Labute & Eckhart will reunite with Ed Harris also attached to star. Based on a dusty old screenplay Labute has dusted off from his bottom drawer, The Hope of Geography is a 70′s period piece following two thieves who scarper to Mexico after a robbery in a San Diego convenience store goes tits up and their subsequent encounters with American woman who they can’t help but act like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels too.

Neil Labute and Aaron Eckhart Will Reunite for 'Geography of Hope'

6 May 2011 9:09 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in 1997 both filmmaker Neil Labute and actor Aaron Eckhart made a splash onto the big screen with In the Company of Men, a film that was a festival hit at the time. Since then the two have worked together on films such as Tumble, Nurse Betty, Possession and The Wicker Man, but now the duo (who actually went to school together at Brigham Young University) are looking to work together yet again. 24 Frames reports Labute and Eckhart will reunite for an indie called The Geography of Hope, and Ed Harris will also be along for the ride as well. Labute also write the script himself as he's done often before. The story, set in the 70's, will follow two crooks (Eckhart and Harris) who flee to Baja, Mexico, after a robbery in a San Diego convenience store goes bad. There they encounter several »

Julian Fellowes To Write Agatha Christie’s Crooked House

22 March 2011 7:05 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It seems that Julian Fellowes’ career is in no danger whatsoever of slowing down at the moment. After all but single-handedly bringing millions of viewers back to ITV1 with last year’s Downton Abbey, The Independent now have it that he will be penning the script for a feature film version of Agatha Christie’s Crooked House to be released next year.

The novel is,

“based in London in the autumn of 1947. The narrator, Charles Hayward, is told by his fiancée Sophia that she cannot marry him until the killer of her grandfather, who has been poisoned, is found.”

Christie, whose work has been popular for more than half a century with the fame of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, described Crooked House as one of her two favourite works she had written, and Fellowes is a big fan of her work, having discovered her in his teenage years.
