Film News: Burt Reynolds, The Movie Star King, Dies at 82

Jupiter, Fla – When I met Burt Reynolds in 2011, I knew I was meeting Hollywood royalty… he filled the room as a Movie Star King. He was frail at that time, complaining of the injuries he endured in the over 90 films in his career, but nothing stopped his stardom until it was over. Reynolds died on September 6th, 2018. He was 82.

Burt was age 75 at our meeting, and he still had that the charm bearing that audiences adored in his heyday in the 1970s and early ‘80s, when he was the King of the Box Office. He started in 1950s TV, bounced around in that and B-movies in the ‘60s, and found his niche as a humor-motivated “good old boy” in a series of films in the ‘70s, culminating with “Smokey and the Bandit” in 1977, his most memorable hit. But even in his later years, he broke ground with “Boogie Nights,” and worked up to the end…

Sock It To Me! Take an Inside Look at 50 Years of 'Laugh-In' (Exclusive)

For George Schlatter, the creator of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, there was a key moment when the Classic TV comedy sketch series had gone from an oddity to cultural phenomenon: Sammy Davis, Jr., an old friend, was making a guest appearance on the show. They were joking around with comedy bits involving a judge, when, according to George, Sammy came up with the phrase, "Here come da judge!", which would lead into a sketch about the banter between a defendant and a judge dressed in black robe and oversized wig (becoming a national catchphrase in the process). "We taped 'Here Come Da Judge' at two in the morning," says George exclusively. "It was so funny that we put it on the next show. Suddenly people were walking down the hall saying, 'Here come da judge.' The show went on that Monday night, and Tuesday or Wedneday morning when the Supreme Court came into the courtroom,

Judy Carne obituary

Singer, actor and comedian who made her zany mark in the American hit sketch show Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In

Comedians are often defined by one stock expression, from Jack Benny’s sighing “...well!” to Homer Simpson’s “Doh!” For Judy Carne, who has died aged 76, the phrase was “sock it to me” and every time she uttered it, or anything close to it, on America’s hit comedy sketch show Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In, she would be doused in water, disappear down a trap door, or worse. The producer George Schlatter had appropriated the phrase from black musicians with whom he worked. It made Carne the show’s central figure, and put “sock it to me” into 1960s vernacular.

Carne was a vivacious singer and dancer whose rise to something close to stardom had been rapid in the Us, and which Laugh-In wound up bringing to a screeching halt.

Joe Perry’s Sexual Awakening With Laugh-in’s Judy Carne

  • Vulture
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has written — well, dictated — a memoir called Rocks, which will be out on October 7. As you might expect, it’s filled with sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The rock-and-roll stuff will be mostly of interest to Aerosmith superfans. The drugs stuff ends about halfway through, when he gets to the part about kicking his various habits. But the sex? The sex is pretty memorable. His recollections of copulation and the flirting that precedes it run the gamut from the lurid to the vaguely illegal. The best of which is his dalliance with former Laugh-In girl Judy Carne, excerpted here. It’s unknown whether Carne, who turned 75 this year, has the same fond recollections.The months before the fall of 1972, when we actually started recording our first album, were wild. I had my first and only affair with an older woman who, in many ways,

The Top Five Witches

Hollywood has given us many sensational witches over the years, with a long list of historic performances from the finest actresses. In celebration of the impending release of Nicolas Cage’s epic new blockbuster ‘Season of the Witch’, we celebrate cinema’s all-time top five witches. Hop on our broomstick and let us guide you through the expert star selection…

Susan Sarandon, Jane Spofford, The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

It is a challenge to pick the brightest light in the trio of star witches from this eighties classic. However, Sarandon just edges the pick ahead of Cher and Michelle Pfeiffer with an alluring portrayal of Jane Spofford. An understated power in the performance from the always-classy Sarandon conveys believability ahead of her sexy rival co-stars. Her on-screen electricity with Jack Nicholson rather helps as well.

The Witches of Eastwick caused controversy upon release, its misogynistic undertones left critics with easy ammunition for attack.
