Art Buchwald vs. Paramount Studios

"Fatal Subtraction" by Pierce O'Donnell and Dennis McDougal is a truly fascinating look at the case that columnist and humorist Art Buchwald brought against Paramount for "borrowing" an idea of his that became "Coming to America", one of the studio's major hits. It trul...

the Twilight Zone tragedy

An incredible book looking at a painful piece of Hollywood history is "Outrageous Conduct: Art, Ego, and the Twilight Zone Case" by Stephen Farber and Marc Green, which is the true story behind the Twilight Zone film's senseless slaughter that killed Vic Morrow and two children. You will p...

the Cliff Roberston scandal

If you would like to read an excellent expose of Hollywood's business ethics, "Indecent Exposure" by David McClintick should be on your list. It details how actor Cliff Robertson discovered that his former agent, David Begelman (and then became Columbia studio chief), had forged Robertson'...

My first "encounter" with Alice Faye was around 1962 when I saw the film, State Fair, but as I was stunned by Ann-Margret in the same film, it was many years before I realized that Faye was in the movie. Seeing her older films now, I have much more of an appreciation for her. She had style...

I'll have to check the films tonight, but it may have been a Max Steiner composition since he scored both films.

July 2007 TCM schedule is up

Here's the link: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/month/?cid=&oid=7/1/2007 It looks like Randolph Scott is Star of the Month. And, unless I miss my guess, they are doing a 60th anniversary salute to the United States Air Force becoming a separate entity. (Though the anniversary is really in September...

I think this will stop any wars on the board from now on. It's hard to believe that the board was degraded so much over the years that it came to this. But those who set out to cause hell on the board are probably joyous and are now scouting their next venues of destruction. We've got the board back...

I admit things aren't as lively without someone over there to hate and battle, but I think the board will get back to being what it should be. I think it is true, it needs us there to get postings going again. We should be posting there again, all of us, en masse. As far as CS goes, it will be easy ...

Costco has four boxsets featuring the above stars, under the heading Columbia Screen Legends Collection. Each star gets three films. The good thing is that each set is selling at Costco for $19.99, which is far less than the $65 to $75 street price to get all three titles in each set. What caught my...

100 Years of Horror This is a 5-DVD box set that contains 26 half-hour programs hosted by Christopher Lee, with clips and interviews with insiders. Each show examines a part of horror film history, such as Dracula, girl ghouls, etc. While this all sounds good at first, the execution of it is pretty...

Horror of Dracula Horror of Dracula stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee and the print is excellent. Of all the Dracula films made, I think I like this Dracula film better than any others, including those of Bela Lugosi. Even in color, I found it atmosopheric. The musical score was excellent and...
