Lover Come Back (1961)
Sure, featuring a single actor as more than one character in your movie smells a bit like a gimmick—but at the end of the day, it’s an efficient and often effective means of showcasing the versatility of a performer. And that can hardly be faulted. We caught a whiff of it with Split this year, though McAvoy might be disqualified for being a Legion of One rather than a cast with a shared face. Personally, I had no idea the trend cast such a wide-reaching historical net — I’d stupidly assumed it was something made possible by the advent of modern makeup and digital tech. Again, stupidly.
Be it gimmick or something more nuanced (or both!) — it’s particularly fascinating that it has such a long standing history as a marketing device. Film quality aside, the main draw is often the performative tour-de-force itself. Some

Laemmle’s Anniversary Classics presents a tribute to Doris Day,
Strange rumours of a new film project for the 93-year-old actress-singer started in a German tabloid, eventually catching fire online.
Her spokesperson Charley Walters has since spoken out to insist that Day is solely focused on her animal charity at this time.
"While Doris always appreciates hearing from her fans, the rumours about her returning to the big screen are not true," Walters told Deadline.
"She adores her longtime friend Clint Eastwood, but Doris's recent and current focus remains on her Doris Day Animal Foundation, which continues to help animals and the people who love them."
Day last appeared on the big screen back in 1968, in the blackout movie Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? and romantic comedy With Six You Get Eggroll.
During her heyday, Day was paired with Rock Hudson in the light-hearted Pillow Talk,
Ann B. Davis Dies
Davis’ death was a result of complications stemming from a fall. The actress hit her head, suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness, Bishop William Frey told CNN. She died at a San Antonio, Tex., hospital.
Davis had her breakout role in 1950s sitcom The Bob Cummings Show in which she played the secretary Charmaine "Schultzy" Schultz. Her work in the role earned her a pair of Emmy awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She subsequently appeared on The John Forsythe Show and feature films All Hands on Deck and Lover Come Back.
In 1969, Davis landed the role of Alice on The Brady Bunch. Throughout the family series' run that went until 1974, Davis’ character was a large part of the show. Even in the opening credits,
Emmy-winning actress Ann B. Davis, who became the country's favorite and most famous housekeeper as the devoted Alice Nelson of "The Brady Bunch," died Sunday at a San Antonio hospital. She was 88.
Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner's investigator Sara Horne said Davis died Sunday morning at University Hospital. Horne said no cause of death was available and that an autopsy was planned Monday.
Bill Frey, a retired bishop and a longtime friend of Davis, said she suffered a fall Saturday at her San Antonio home and never recovered. Frey said Davis had lived with him and his wife, Barbara, since 1976.
More than a decade before scoring as the Bradys' loyal Alice, Davis was the razor-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, "The Bob Cummings Show," which brought her two Emmys. Over the years, she also appeared on Broadway and in occasional movies.
Davis considered her ordinary look an asset.

The American entertainer Tony Martin, who has died aged 98, was once described as a singing tuxedo. Although he was rather a stiff actor, he was handsome and charming, with a winning, dimpled smile. What mattered most, however, was his mellifluous baritone voice, which he used softly in ballads such as To Each His Own and I Get Ideas, and powerfully in Begin the Beguine and There's No Tomorrow, all hit records in the 1940s and 50s.
He was one of the top crooners of the period with Vic Damone, Andy Williams and Dick Haymes, all of them just below Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra in esteem and popularity. According to Mel Tormé: "Tony Martin was technically the greatest singer of them all, as well as being the classiest guy around, both as an entertainer and a person."
.I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Sony Music on this collection of my recordings. I sang hundreds of songs, but because I was so busy singing, I rarely had the time to be involved in the compilation of the albums. So in this collection are some of my favorites, ones that I loved singing, and I hope you like them too,
The stories involve: A flesh-eating clown desperately trying to protect the person he craves the most; dirty cop and a hit gone wrong with a vengeful Necromancer; a beautiful but mysterious woman and a lonely man looking for love in all the wrong places; a gruesome blood-splattered uprising of Illegal Mexican Zombies; and a Cajun conjure grandfather whose gift of never ending love goes terribly awry.
The segments are entitled "Clowned," "Lover Come Back," "The Crossing," and "Taejung's Lament."
In the same way that gays off the screen spent the 20th century going from invisible to mocked to militant to a fact of life, so did the "funny" barbs sent our way on the big screen.
Phase One: “You’re gay, and you’re ridiculous.”
When movies began to talk in the late 1920s and beyond, gays were still pretty invisible in American society; that invisibility was mirrored on screen, particularly after the
Q: Am I wrong or does the latest episode of Nip/Tuck send a very negative representation of the gay community, and the idea of gay marriage and adoption? – Dan, Rochester NY
A: A negative representation of the gay community just because they do an episode about an adoptive boy who gets plastic surgery so he’ll look more like his father so it’ll be more of a turn-on for the crowds of rich gay men who watch them perform in their live incest sex show?
Nip/Tuck's disturbing chip off the old block
Well, okay, but that’s just one gay storyline of this season, right? It’s not like they also did an explicit storyline about brutal prison rape, or one where a wildly promiscuous
