The style of women’s clothing will be drastically changed. The phenomenon of using a popular musician in a movie is nothing new. He eventually set his sights on Hollywood becoming one of the contract players for Desilu Studios.
If you are a regular moviegoer, you may find yourself a bit fed up with the Hollywood formula after a while. After all, it’s not the formula but the departure from the formula which turns an ordinary film into something great. The true masters recognize this fact and make their films accordingly. When you are in your home flipping through your satellite TV channels, you will find a number of opportunities if you want something outside of the typical. Here are five films you ought to check out.
The Mann features begin at 8 p.m. Eastern time with “The Far Country” (1954), starring James Stewart, Ruth Roman, Corinne Calvet, and Walter Brennan. Set against the striking backdrop of the Alaskan wilderness, this is one of five Westerns directed by Mann and starring Jimmy Stewart.
Travolta is set to play the lead role of John Gotti in Gotti: Three Generations, but recent rumors suggested Hollywood bosses had abandoned the project after two masseurs filed sexual assault lawsuits against their leading man.
Another bit of madness. A movie musical based on a Broadway musical based on a B-movie! Frankly, I’m not terribly impressed with Little Shop of Horrors, but it is worth considering the purchase of Roku from Netflix for the dentist number with Steve Martin.
You’ve got the rare opportunity to catch Heath and his band on film at 1 p.m. Monday when Robert Osborne airs the 1960 caper picture “Jazz Boat.” Anthony Newley stars as handyman pretending to be a crook in this CinemaScope adventure, which includes Heath and Co. among the shipboard entertainment.
The Lubitsch features begin on Friday, December 7, 2012, with “The Loves of Pharaoh” (1922) at 8 p.m. Eastern time. “The Smiling Lieutenant” (1931), starring Maurice Chevalier, Claudette Colbert, and Miriam Hopkins, airs at 10 p.m., followed by “The Shop Around the Corner” (1940) at midnight. Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan star in the final film, which has been remade several times since, including as “In the Good Old Summertime” (1949) and “You’ve Got Mail” (1998).
He has won two Pulitzer Prizes for his books on two U.S. Presidents that were later made into an HBO film and miniseries. McCullough has also received the National Book Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the highest award a civilian can receive. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and earned his degree in English Literature at Yale University. While working as an editor and writer at American Heritage he began a three year project writing a book on one of the worst flood disasters in U.S. history. His book The Johnstown Floods was published in 1968. McCullough received critical acclaim with one critic stating “We have no better social historian”.
Think of the money that can be saved on political campaigns. There will be no need for debate as there will not be a choice of which politician to vote for. There will only be one name on the ballot. Democratic elections will be a thing of the past. Osama’s man will be unanimously elected.
