March 4 – Nine Lives
According to a Facebook post by her son William Katt, Hale passed away at her home on Sherman Oaks, Calif.
“Lost my beautiful wonderful mom Barbara Hale yesterday afternoon,” Katt, star of the television series “The Greatest American Hero,” wrote Friday. “She left peacefully at her home in Sherman Oaks Ca surrounded by close family and dear friends. We’ve all been so lucky to have her for so long. She was gracious and kind and silly and always fun to be with. A wonderful actress and smart business woman she was most of all a treasure as a friend and mother! We’re all a little lost without her but we have extraordinary stories and memories to take with us for the rest of our lives.
Hale played Street, assistant to Raymond Burr’s titular lawyer, in
The biggest question I have this hour is why, after watching East kill herself with the gun in Emerald City Season 1 Episode 1, didn't Dorothy remove the bullets? At least she should have put the safety on, though I would guess that Lucas would have figured out how to work the gun anyway.
Why didn't she just throw it in the water after she told him he shouldn't be playing with it? Oh, wait. We're getting a lesson here on the danger of guns. Dorothy is the irresponsible adult...Lucas is basically a child.
Yeah, I get it. Thank you, Emerald City, for setting us straight on that issue, though I'm going to guess that
Christopher Walken As Han Solo: George Lucas had a very hard time finding his Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). This character was the last of the lead figures to be cast. Lucas’ leading contender at one point was none other than Christopher Walken. Just think about the possibilities in that performance! However, a chance meeting with Harrison Ford (Who was working as a carpenter at the time) inspired Lucas to cast Ford in the part instead, which launched him into super stardom in the 80s.
The documentary has already played at IFC Center in New York and Laemmle Theaters in Los Angeles and will be made available to international buyers at MIPDoc with a focus on distribution in 2017 on digital and broadcast platforms.
Sound Of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story chronicles the life of alto sax player and Charlie Parker protégée Frank Morgan, a musical prodigy who became a longtime heroin junkie, San Quentin prisoner and, ultimately, a jazz legend.
“This beautiful documentary is an amazing testament to the power of music, and we are extremely excited to share Frank’s story with people all over the world,” said Bond/360 COO Elizabeth Sheldon.
“As Bond continues to focus on the art and culture space, this acquisition furthers our presence in the international marketplace for high quality nonfiction films.”
How do you talk about this movie? How do you talk about this song? Sure, there are star-turns. There are underdog stories. But there is nothing in Hollywood legend so powerfully wedded as Judy Garland and The Wizard of Oz. It's the kind of lightning-in-a-bottle marriage of star and song that comes once every couple of generations. This was the number that would define Judy Garland as she defined it. It would be her biggest hit; one she recorded and re-recorded. It would follow her throughout her career, and outlive her when she died. Every moment before and after in the story of Judy Garland, MGM, and Studio System Hollywood lives in the shadow of "Over The Rainbow."
The Movie: The Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939)
The Songwriter: Harold Arlen (Music & Lyrics)
The Players: Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton, Billie Burke,
Although he was the son of another notable musician — guitarist Stanley Morgan of the Ink Spots — young Frank was drawn to Parker while still in his teens as a mentor and father figure. Like Parker, he chose the alto saxophone as his signature instrument,
