Heath was inspired by Miller and his Army Air Force Band and spoke with Miller at length about forming his own band when Miller toured England with the USAF Orchestra. Heath admired the immaculate precision of the Miller ensemble and felt confident that he could emulate Miller’s success with his own orchestra.
The Godfather. When thinking if a thriller, you think of intrigue, revenge, back-room plotting and shocking endings. With these criteria, there are few films more thrilling than The Godfather. The cast alone is worthy of an actor’s Hall of Fame: Brando, Pacino, Duvall — no first names necessary. Throw in Diane Keaton and James Caan (plus De Niro for part II) and it’s not even fair. If you haven’t seen this film recently, check your satellite TV program guide today for the next showing.
As part of the tour, actors and actresses from classic films will appear in five cities with TCM host Robert Osborne to discuss the film at the screening.
Maureen O’Hara is probably the only actress to come from Ireland and become a big success in the U.S. This is saying a lot, because there have been many successful Irish actors in recent years, like Colin Farrell, who have made it big in Hollywood. But since she sizzled on the silver screen in the 40’s and 50’s, no big Irish actress has stormed the U.S. since her.
Not familiar with the trombonist and band leader? Well, perhaps you’ve got good reason. Heath’s popularity peaked in the first two decades after World War II and the man himself died in 1967. On the other hand, an artist who could draw effusive praise from Count Basie (“Ted Heath . He scares me to death . I think Ted is the best precision band and so very entertaining”) deserves our attention.
Not a classic musical, of course, but this is probably Elvis Presley’s best movie; this or Viva Las Vegas. A great ride and it’s fun to watch Elvis trying to become the next James Dean. A bit of trivia: the girl who plays the love interest tragically died in a car accident not long after filming on Jailhouse Rock ended. Another, perhaps even sadder bit of trivia: there is a movie titled Jailhouse Rock listed as being in development at IMDB. One can only hope it is a merely a coincidence and not plans for a remake.
Clint Eastwood directed the film. Many changes were made in the film; for example the reporter John Kelso (played by John Cusack) whose purpose was to attend and report on a social party given by Williams, but also ended up in court writing about the murder trials, had a love interest that was not in the book. Kelso’s love interest was played by Clint’s daughter, actress Alison Eastwood. Kevin Spacey played Jim Williams, Lady Chablis was Chablis Deveau. Due to the film’s combination of facts and fiction, it is defined as a “faction”, first coined by authors Truman Capote and Norman Mailer.
