From the Terrace

This is as sexy as Hollywood pix got in 1960. John O'Hara's novel about class snobbery and the drive for success posits Paul Newman as a moody go-getter. In glossy soap opera fashion, his silver spoon-fed bride Joanne Woodward morphs into an unfaithful monster. Some adulterous relationships are excused and others not in this glossy, morally rigged melodrama. In other words, it's prime entertainment material. From the Terrace Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1960 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 144 min. / Ship Date January 19, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Myrna Loy, Ina Balin, Leon Ames, Elizabeth Allen, Barbara Eden, George Grizzard, Patrick O'Neal, Felix Aylmer.

Last Week's (Inane) Controversy Re: Christmas and Coffee Cups: Movies That Came to Mind

Donald Trump vs. Starbucks' War on Christmas. The War on Christmas: The movies that come to mind We're still in November, but the War on Christmas – according to online buzz, a second cousin once removed of the War on Cops – has begun. Weeping and gritting of teeth has seized certain population segments in the U.S.A. (and perhaps other countries as well) after Fox News, that beacon of intellectual freedom at the end of the cable news tunnel, announced that … Starbucks' holiday season cups are a) red b) devoid of Christmas decorations. Could it be a satanic conspiracy disguised as politically correct inclusiveness? The result of a communist takeover at the Seattle-headquartered company? Cruel and unusual Christian persecution in the form of paper cups? Your guess is as good as mine. Far-right Republican icon, U.S. presidential candidate, and 2015 political circus ringmaster Donald Trump seems to think that Starbucks

Ryan O'Neal Can Keep Farrah Fawcett Portrait by Andy Warhol

Ryan O'Neal Can Keep Farrah Fawcett Portrait by Andy Warhol
For most of the last 33 years, an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett has hung in the home of her longtime lover, Ryan O'Neal, and a jury's verdict Thursday ensures that is where it will stay. For nearly a month, O'Neal has been in a courtroom as lawyers for the University of Texas at Austin sought to gain possession of the portrait, arguing that Fawcett bequeathed the artwork to the school upon her death from cancer in 2009. O'Neal, 72, fought back and testified last week that the portrait was his closest remaining connection to Fawcett. The actor's descriptions of talking to

Ten Badass Characters Who Traded Their Limbs for Weapons (Nsfw)
Is it just me or is there something incredibly cool about a movie character who literally has a dangerous weapon as a part of their body, in place of an average ordinary limb or appendage?  Since I can't get inside your brain and hear the answer to that question before I go ahead and talk more on the subject, I'm going to instead assume that you agree with me and proceed with this list, which quite frankly doesn't need much of an introduction.   So screw your introduction. Let's jump right in, and talk badass weapon limbs!   [Note: at least one of the following limbs is not safe for work viewing... and there are some spoilers ahead as well.]     Ash - Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness   We begin with the man who is quite frankly responsible for making weapon limbs so damn cool: S-Mart's finest employee and demon killer extraordinaire, Mr. Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell). It was in Evil Dead 2 that Ash's hand became possessed by evil forces that are anything but groovy,

Patrick O'Neal Defends Ryan O'Neal: 'I Love My Dad'
Last week, a "Today" show panel blasted actor Ryan O'Neal for his parenting and the drug and legal problems three of his children - Tatum, Griffin and Redmond O'Neal - have had.

Today, Ryan's other son, Patrick O'Neal, a Fox Sports sportscaster is coming to his dad's defense.

"I love my dad. I'm proud of my dad. He was awesome," Patrick told Billy Bush in a new interview for Access Hollywood. "Ryan O'Neal -- he was my hero."

During that "Today" panel, Dr. Nancy Snyderman said, "This was a window into dysfunctionality and sad parenting," while Donnie ...

Ryan O'Neal's Son Defends Father's Parenting Skills

Ryan O'Neal's Son Defends Father's Parenting Skills
Ryan O'Neal's son Patrick has jumped to his father's defence after the actor condemned his own parenting skills, insisting he's "proud" to call the Love Story star his dad.

The screen veteran has received much public backlash for his hands-off relationship with his kids as three of his four children - Tatum, Redmond and Griffin - have struggled with drug and legal issues over the last several years.

O'Neal recently opened up about his guilt and failure as a dad during an interview with U.S. breakfast show Today earlier this month, but his sports broadcaster son Patrick O'Neal disagrees - and has come forward in a bid to help repair his dad's public persona.

During an appearance on U.S. news show Access Hollywood on Wednesday, the 44 year old said, "I'm real proud of my family... I'm real proud to say that Ryan O'Neal is my father and I'm real proud of my childhood and growing up how I grew up. The perception of my father as a bad parent (is something)... I have to argue...

"I have never stepped forward (to talk about this), I am a pretty busy guy... (but) I'm not on the payroll of my father so I'm here on my own volition to support my father and tell him that I love him."

James Farentino Dead at 73: Dynasty, Sandra Dee/Patty Duke Leading Man

James Farentino, best remembered for his roles in the television series The Bold Ones: The Lawyers and Dynasty, died of heart failure earlier today at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 73. A Brooklyn native (born on Feb. 24, 1938), Farentino made his Broadway debut in the 1961 production of Tennessee Williams' Night of the Iguana, starring Bette Davis, Margaret Leighton, and Patrick O'Neal. The following year, he began guesting on various television series, among them The Defenders, Route 66, and 77 Sunset Strip. Despite a Golden Globe as Most Promising Newcomer – Male for Brian G. Hutton's 1967 comedy The Pad and How to Use It, Farentino's film career was a minor one. He did, however, play one of the leads in a more important comedy that same year, David Lowell Rich's Rosie!, based on a play co-written by Ruth Gordon, and starring Rosalind Russell, Sandra Dee, and Brian Aherne.

Bad Movie Alert! "The Kremlin Letter" On Fox Movie Channel Tomorrow

  • CinemaRetro
by Lee Pfeiffer

There will be a rare American TV showing of John Huston's mega-bomb 1970 spy thriller The Kremlin Letter shown tomorrow (Friday, February 27) on the Fox Movie Channel at 2:00 Pm (Eastern Standard Time). The misguided flick boasts an impressive cast including Patrick O'Neal, Bibi Anderson, Max Von Sydow, Orson Welles and Richard Boone in a plot so incomprehensible, you'll be lost within minutes. There are some great locations (it's one of the few films to be allowed to be shot in London's legendary Reform Club) and does boast the unique opportunity to see George Sanders playing a spy master in drag. (This had to be J. Edgar Hoover's favorite movie!) This Cold War thriller laid a Siberia-sized egg at the box-office, but it's a "must have" for all bad movie lovers out there in Cinema Retro Land. Incidentally, a couple of years ago, Retro writer Eddy
