New UK Trailer for 'The Hidden Soldier' with Liu Yifei & Emile Hirsch

"I think someone here knows where the Americans are." Signature Entertainment has debuted an official UK trailer for a Chinese drama titled The Hidden Soldier, about an American WWII pilot who survived in rural China. The film has also gone under other international titles including In Harm's Way and The Chinese Widow, but will be released in the UK under that The Hidden Soldier titled. Emile Hirsch stars as Jack, the pilot who survives a crash landing in rural China. A young Chinese woman, played by Liu Yifei (who is starring in the upcoming Mulan movie) takes him in to her home and, of course, falls in love with him while keeping him alive and hidden from the Japanese military. This looks as cliche as it sounds, with all the usual romance and war tropes worked into it. Worth a watch only if you really love wartime romance. Here's the

TCM goes to war on Memorial Day: But thorny issues mostly avoided

Submarine movie evening: Underwater war waged in TCM's Memorial Day films In the U.S., Turner Classic Movies has gone all red, white, and blue this 2017 Memorial Day weekend, presenting a few dozen Hollywood movies set during some of the numerous wars in which the U.S. has been involved around the globe during the last century or so. On Memorial Day proper, TCM is offering a submarine movie evening. More on that further below. But first it's good to remember that although war has, to put it mildly, serious consequences for all involved, it can be particularly brutal on civilians – whether male or female; young or old; saintly or devilish; no matter the nationality, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other label used in order to, figuratively or literally, split apart human beings. Just this past Sunday, the Pentagon chief announced that civilian deaths should be anticipated as “a

The Legend Of Korra season 3 episodes 4 and 5 review: In Harm's Way, The Metal Clan

The Legend Of Korra needs to pick up the pace this week. Here's Kaci's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

3.4 In Harm's Way 3.5 The Metal Clan

The first half of this week's new episodes of The Legend Of Korra is something of a disappointment. I hate to say it, especially after praising the pacing of last week's opening three episodes, but this one really felt like it dragged on forever. There's really only an "A" story to work with, with the "B" story such as it is being more of a runner than a storyline in its own right; and the A story is pretty simple: Team Avatar & Friends rescue the airbenders from the Earth Queen's clutches. Meanwhile, Zaheer and his crew break the final member of their group out of prison. That's it. That's all that happens, and it takes an entire episode to tell. The pacing is practically glacial,

Larry Hagman obituary

Actor renowned as the machiavellian oilman Jr Ewing in Dallas

On 21 November 1980, 83 million people in the Us and 24 million in the UK watched the TV show Dallas to see who had shot the villainous Jr Ewing. While working late at the office, the boss of Ewing Oil was suddenly fired on by an unseen assailant. Who shot Jr, and would he survive?

Any character who had ever come into contact with the oleaginous Texas oilman had good reason to do away with him, but there was no way he could really have been killed off. If Jr had died, then the series would have died, because Jr was Dallas – and Larry Hagman, who has died aged 81 after suffering from throat cancer, was Jr.

Other actors were at times replaced in their roles, but Hagman was irreplaceable. Nevertheless, just in case, Hagman quickly renegotiated his contract with Lorimar Studios just after

Actor Larry Hagman Dead At Age 81

  • CinemaRetro
Actor Larry Hagman, immortalized for his performance as the legendary villain J.R. Ewing in the TV show Dallas, has died from throat cancer. He was 81 years old and had been actively acting until recently, when he appeared in the reboot of the famous TV series. The last few years had been difficult ones for Hagman. Not only did he have to battle cancer but also had to contend with his wife Maj's affliction from Alzheimer's Disease. Hagman was a working character actor when he was cast as the male lead in the 1965 sitcom I Dream of Jeannie opposite Barbara Eden. The show's success helped launch him to star status and he appeared in dozens of TV series and feature films. However, it was his portrayal of lovable cad J.R. Ewing in the 1981 CBS hit Dallas that elevated him to the status of a TV icon. The show ran

Dallas Star Larry Hagman Passes Away at Age 81

Dallas Star Larry Hagman Passes Away at Age 81
Larry Hagman, who starred in both the original series Dallas and the current TNT remake Dallas, passed away Friday at the age of 81. The actor passed from complications in his fight with cancer. Here's a statement released by his family.

"Larry was back in his beloved Dallas re-enacting the iconic role he loved most. Larry's family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time."

Before being cast as the larger-than-life J.R. Ewing in Dallas, the actor appeared in TV shows and films such as I Dream of Jeannie and In Harm's Way. When Dallas first aired as a five-part mini-series in 1978, J.R. was a supporting character, although his performance quickly earned him a bigger role, eventually becoming the centerpiece of the show.

Jill Haworth obituary

Actor best known for her roles in Exodus and the Broadway musical Cabaret

The producer-director Otto Preminger had an eye for blue-eyed blondes, casting two complete unknowns, the 19-year-old Jean Seberg in Saint Joan (1957) and the 15-year-old Jill Haworth in Exodus (1960), with mixed results. In Preminger's rambling, all-things-to-all-people saga about the birth of Israel, Haworth, who has died aged 65, played Karen Hansen, a young Danish-Jewish girl searching for her father, from whom she was separated during the second world war. She falls in love with a radical Zionist (Sal Mineo), but is killed during a raid and buried in the same grave as an Arab, a symbol of reconciliation between the two peoples. Despite a phoney accent and the fact that she had never acted previously, Haworth was cute and touching in the significant role.

She then appeared in two more of Preminger's overstretched epics on huge subjects: The Cardinal

Jill Haworth: Her Life Was A Cabaret, Old Chum

Haworth as Sally Bowles in the Broadway production of Cabaret

 

By Tom Lisanti

Over the past year, a number of 60s personalities have died, but the one that has most saddened me is Jill Haworth who died in her sleep earlier this week. She was one of my most favorite interviews, as she graciously invited me into her home in 1999. She was just so saucy and honest, holding nothing back. What makes it even sadder for me is that I am reading the new entertaining Sal Mineo bio by Michael Gregg Machaud and Jill is quoted extensively throughout as she had a long romance with the actor.

Petite blonde Jill Haworth made three movies while under personal contract to Otto Preminger--Exodus (where she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Female Newcomer), The Cardinal, In Harm's Way--before going freelance. After starring in the British horror movie It!

Jill Haworth Dies: Worked with Otto Preminger; Cabaret's Original Sally Bowles on Broadway

Eva Marie Saint, Jill Haworth in Otto Preminger's Exodus Actress Jill Haworth, who was seen in a handful of movies and television shows since 1960 but who was best known as Broadway's original Sally Bowles in Cabaret, died Monday, Jan. 3, of "natural causes" at her home in Manhattan. The British-born actress was 65. Among Haworth's film appearances are three minor roles for Otto Preminger: Exodus (1960), as Sal Mineo's girlfriend; The Cardinal (1963); and In Harm's Way (1965). Haworth had larger roles in a few other movies, but those were minor fare. Among them were B-horror flicks such as It! (1967), a retelling of the Golem tale co-starring Roddy McDowall; The Haunted House of Horror (1969), opposite former teen idol Frankie Avalon and veteran Dennis Price; and Tower of Evil / Horror on Snape Island (1974), with Bryant Haliday. Considering some of the reviews the inexperienced Haworth received, her Sally Bowles [...]

Cinema Retro Salutes The Veterans Of Pearl Harbor

  • CinemaRetro
Today marks the anniversary of the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor- which launched the United States into WWII. Fortunately, it's a better world today than it was then and the USA has excellent relations with our former WWII adversaries. However, we should stop and think about the sacrifices made on that "Day That Will Live in Infamy". Some of those veterans are still with us and deserve our respect. Since anyone reading this is a movie lover, maybe today is good day to watch a great movie that commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor: Tora! Tora! Tora!, From Here to Eternity and In Harm's Way lead the pack.
