Shirley Temple movies: 13 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Heidi,’ ‘The Little Princess,’ ‘Wee Willie Winkie’
As President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “It is a splendid thing that for just fifteen cents, an American can go to a movie and look at the smiling face of a baby and forget his troubles.”

Few Hollywood stars were ever as big –or little — as Shirley Temple. This dimpled darling with her bouncy corkscrew curls and delightful tap-dance routines brought cheer and spread sunshine to moviegoers during the darkest days of the Great Depression. She was the No. 1 box-office draw from 1935 to 1938 and was the first child star to be presented with a special Juvenile Academy Award for her big-screen contributions during 1934. She even had her own line of licensed merchandise including look-alike dolls, dishes and clothing. Before 1935 ended, her income from licensed goods would be more than $100,000 – doubling what she made from her movies.

Send troops: Mexicans are at Hollywood and Vine

Send troops: Mexicans are at Hollywood and Vine
When a certain someone worries publically about caravans reaching our southern border, he may be thinking about an invasion of Mexicans farther north where they are stepping over his plaque on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, scooping up Oscar nominations and absconding with electroplated gold.

The leaders of this caravan are Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu, Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, multi-hyphenate filmmakers who have amassed 22 Oscar nominations among them and a total of nine wins. They have won four of the last five best director Oscars, with Cuaron expected to make it five out of six for “Roma,” and they have won two of the last four best picture awards, with “Roma” favored to make it three out of five.

These self-labeled Three Amigos are also looting the vaults of the studios and financial institutions pumping millions into the making of their movies and paying them millions to do it.

A star is born? Meet the aspiring teacher who could make Oscar history in ‘Roma’

A star is born? Meet the aspiring teacher who could make Oscar history in ‘Roma’
Yalitza Aparicio, 24, was an aspiring pre-school teacher with a degree in education when her sister decided to go to a casting call at a local community center for a movie that was being partly shot in their town of Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca, in Mexico.

Turns out, her sister wanted her to audition, instead. “She was very, very happy for me that they cast me. Even though I’m not a talkative person,“ Aparicio said with the help of a translator at last month’s Middleburg Film Festival in Virginia.

The movie turned out to be “Roma,” a Netflix film that could make history as the first Best Picture nominee – and perhaps winner – to be produced by a streaming site. It would also be the only fully subtitled feature to ever win. The story of a middle-class family of six living in Mexico City in the ‘70s and their kind and devoted live-in housekeeper and nanny Cleo,

Princess Charlotte is only 2, but she knows what she likes. During a visit to Hornsey Road Children's Centre in London on Tuesday, Kate Middleton, who is currently pregnant with her third child, revealed that her daughter loves the color pink while chatting with a young girl named Nevaeh Richardson-Natiko.

Joker: 6 Actors Who Have Played the Clown Prince of Crime

David Crow Sep 26, 2018

We look at what each of the movie Joker actors have brought to the role, from Cesar Romero in Batman '66 to Joaquin Phoenix.

Whether or not you liked Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad, you can't argue with a $746 million in worldwide box office. That 2015 movie once again reminded Warner Bros. that the Clown Prince of Crime is their most bankable screen villain, and not even anemic reviews could keep audiences away. For that reason, it's no surprise we are on the verge of getting our first solo Joker movie, albeit the reviews might explain why it stars Joaquin Phoenix in a completely original concept from director Todd Phillips and producer Martin Scorseese.

This is a character historically infamous for his theatricality; he’s a scion of chaos, the maestro of malevolence, and a twisty yin to Batman’s straight-laced yang. He’s a

17 traumatic TV deaths that we're still in denial about

So, it's now been a couple of weeks since The Incident took place on Grey's Anatomy, and now that the dust has settled we're looking back on the other small-screen deaths that have left us similarly destroyed.

Below, we've listed 17 of the TV demises we're still not over. In no particular order. They all made us sad. We're not crying, it's just raining. On our faces.

Warning: Just in case this doesn't go without saying, spoilers galore lie ahead. Some of these shows are finished, some are still on, but all of the episodes referenced aired in 2014 or earlier.

1. Joyce Summers (Buffy)

Spoiler: Joss Whedon is going to show up a few times on this list. The man has a self-confessed cruel streak when it comes to offing beloved characters, but the death of Buffy Summers' mother is in a different league even by Whedon standards.
