'Gilligan's Island' Star Dawn Wells Was 'Surprised' By Fans Supporting Her GoFundMe (Exclusive)

Mary Ann may have been an afterthought in the original lyrics to the Gilligan’s Island theme song ("...the movie star and the rest"), but Dawn Wells’ fans haven’t forgotten about her. The beloved actress who played the farm girl in the classic '60s sitcom recently fell on financial hard times due to complications following knee surgery. That’s when her friend Dugg Kirkpatrick sent an Sos to her fans, who rallied to raise more than $180,000 in a few weeks via the website GoFundMe to help pay her medical bills and move her into assisted living. "There simply aren’t enough words," Dawn, 79, exclusively told Closer Weekly — in the magazine's latest issue, on newsstands now! — of her reaction to the campaign. "I am both honored and embarrassed, but overall I am overwhelmed with the love that is being expressed for me." (Photo Credit: Getty Images) Dawn admitted she

Scott Reviews André de Toth’s Day of the Outlaw [Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Review]

Who is the outlaw in Day of the Outlaw? Undoubtedly Burl Ives’ villainous Jack Bruhn – he leads a band of bad guys into the remote Wyoming town, holding everyone there loosely as hostages until he decides to move along. But he’s not an outlaw the way we typically understand it; for one thing, he wears a Union (not even Confederate!) officer’s uniform, and his legacy of shame is more rooted in military than more overtly criminal activities. His band of men are far more outlaws than he, but there is no singular one.

Instead, I want to pivot attention to Blaise Starrett (Robert Ryan), the ostensible hero of the story, who starts the film ready to murder a farmer (Alan Marshal) over the latter’s desire to put fences around his land, which Blaise is used to running his cattle through a couple times a year. That Blaise

Blu-ray Review – Day of the Outlaw (1959)

Day of the Outlaw, 1959.

Directed by André De Toth.

Starring Robert Ryan, Burl Ives, and Tina Louise.


Blaise Starrett is a rancher at odds with homesteaders when outlaws hold up the small town. The outlaws are held in check only by their notorious leader, but he is diagnosed with a fatal wound and the town is a powder keg waiting to blow.

1959. Howard Hawks makes Rio Bravo, widely and rightly considered one of the greatest Westerns ever made. Shot in beautiful Technicolor ensuring the Tucson landscapes and Ricky Nelson beautiful face hold the attention whenever they’re on screen, Hawks film ran at a handsome 140 minutes, with clear lines between the good guys and the bad. A monumental piece of cinema but one we’ve all seen. Thanks to Masters Of Cinema, we can now enjoy an equally masterful but entirely contrasting Western from the same year as Hawk’s masterpiece,

Early Black Film Actor Has His Day

Rex Ingram in 'The Thief of Bagdad' 1940 with tiny Sabu. Actor Rex Ingram movies on TCM: Early black film performer in 'Cabin in the Sky,' 'Anna Lucasta' It's somewhat unusual for two well-known film celebrities, whether past or present, to share the same name.* One such rarity is – or rather, are – the two movie people known as Rex Ingram;† one an Irish-born white director, the other an Illinois-born black actor. Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” continues today, Aug. 11, '15, with a day dedicated to the latter. Right now, TCM is showing Cabin in the Sky (1943), an all-black musical adaptation of the Faust tale that is notable as the first full-fledged feature film directed by another Illinois-born movie person, Vincente Minnelli. Also worth mentioning, the movie marked Lena Horne's first important appearance in a mainstream motion picture.§ A financial disappointment on the

Oscar History-Making Actress Has Her Day on TCM

Teresa Wright ca. 1945. Teresa Wright movies on TCM: 'The Little Foxes,' 'The Pride of the Yankees' Pretty, talented Teresa Wright made a relatively small number of movies: 28 in all, over the course of more than half a century. Most of her films have already been shown on Turner Classic Movies, so it's more than a little disappointing that TCM will not be presenting Teresa Wright rarities such as The Imperfect Lady and The Trouble with Women – two 1947 releases co-starring Ray Milland – on Aug. 4, '15, a "Summer Under the Stars" day dedicated to the only performer to date to have been shortlisted for Academy Awards for their first three film roles. TCM's Teresa Wright day would also have benefited from a presentation of The Search for Bridey Murphy (1956), an unusual entry – parapsychology, reincarnation – in the Wright movie canon and/or Roseland (1977), a little-remembered entry in James Ivory's canon.

‘Night of the Wolf: Late Phases’ DVD Review

Stars: Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Tom Noonan, Tina Louise, Rutanya Alda, Caitlin O’Heaney, Lance Guest, Erin Cummings, Larry Fessenden | Written by Eric Stolze | Directed by Adrián García Bogliano

If there is one sub-genre of horror that tends to struggle right now it is that of the werewolf, though WolfCop has gone a long way to give it the kick up the ass that it needed with a healthy dose of comedy. For a more serious take on the lycanthropic furry moon obsessives though we now have Late Phases... or as it appears to be known in the UK Night of the Wolf: Late Phases.

When blind veteran Ambrose (Nick Damici) moves into a retirement community the welcome from the locals isn’t exactly what he expected. Learning that the residents have recently been the victims of a spate of wild dog attacks, he soon finds himself victim but manages to fend them off,

Wright Was Earliest Surviving Best Supporting Actress Oscar Winner

Teresa Wright: Later years (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon.") Teresa Wright and Robert Anderson were divorced in 1978. They would remain friends in the ensuing years.[1] Wright spent most of the last decade of her life in Connecticut, making only sporadic public appearances. In 1998, she could be seen with her grandson, film producer Jonah Smith, at New York's Yankee Stadium, where she threw the ceremonial first pitch.[2] Wright also became involved in the Greater New York chapter of the Als Association. (The Pride of the Yankees subject, Lou Gehrig, died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in 1941.)

Late Phases: Night of the Lone Wolf | Blu-ray Review

It appears that Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s English language debut got a longer title for it’s DVD/Blu-ray Release, now known as Late Phases: Night of the Lone Wolf. An interesting and sometimes successful throwback to a fine tradition of genre cinema, Bogliano owes a great deal of this to Nick Damici, an actor featured prominently in the films of Jim Mickle. Considering the budget, several of the special effects sequences are quite impressive. Premiering at South By Southwest in 2014, a November theatrical release saw a mixed critical reception.

After the surprising critical success of his 2012 title Here Comes the Devil, the Spanish director makes his English language debut with a somewhat droll werewolf exercise paying heavy homage to several notable genre titles from the 1980s. Entertaining but never as funny or thrilling as this concoction sometimes promises, for those familiar with Bogliano’s earlier titles (this marks his eleventh feature,

Writer Eric Stolze Talks Late Phases, the Film’s Unique Setting, Practical Effects, and His Favorite Werewolf Films

I quite enjoyed Late Phases when I saw it back in March at SXSW. It's an intriguing werewolf mystery that uses a boatload of practical effects and has a rather unique take on this particular horror subgenre, which is exceedingly hard to get right. The film is set in a retirement home, which is probably the last place most financiers would like to capture on film in today's youth crazed horror market, but writer Eric Stolze more than makes it work with his blend of humor, pathos, and horror. I recently hopped on the phone with Stolze to talk about the film, which was directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Here Comes Devil) and stars Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Tom Noonan, Tina Louise and Lance Guest. Late Phases is currently in theaters and on VOD (iTunes link). Hit the jump for the interview. Question: I wanted to talk to you because

Late Phases | Review

Silver Bullet Band: Bogliano’s English Debut Nontransformative Nostalgia

After the surprising critical success of his 2012 title Here Comes the Devil, Spanish director Adrian Garcia Bogliano makes his English language debut with Late Phases, a somewhat droll werewolf exercise paying heavy homage to several notable genre titles from the 1980s. Entertaining but never as funny or thrilling as this concoction sometimes promises, for those familiar with Bogliano’s earlier titles (this marks his eleventh feature, plus a handful of short films), it’s considerably polished in comparison even if it lacks the pizzazz that such a derivative subgenre requires.

A blind war veteran, Ambrose (Nick Damici) has been relocated to a quaint retirement community, deposited unceremoniously by his son (Ethan Embry). Ambrose chats with his friendly neighbor lady Delores (Karen Lynn Gorney), but she, along with his trusty canine, is ripped to shreds later that very night by a lycanthrope.

Watch Clips from the Werewolf Film ‘Late Phases’

  • DailyDead
“I feel like I’m dropping you off in prison,” Will tells his blind father Ambrose as he helps him move into his new home at the Crescent Bay retirement community. The house’s interior is sparse when they arrive, though Ambrose finds a disturbing remnant in his wall that foreshadows horrors to come in Adriån Garcîa Bogliano’s Late Phases, and we have a handful of clips from the film.

“Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality.
