My Anna Kashfi Story

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on August 24, 2015 at 7:31am 0 Comments

I see that actress Anna Kashfi has died.

Here is my brief Anna Kashfi story from my 2nd memoir, LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HOLLYWOOD.

One afternoon in the late 1960s, the owner of an upscale coffee shop in Brentwood asked me to come by and talk to him about my possibly publicizing his restaurant. When I got there, he was busy with another matter, so he introduced me to one of his favorite customers, and she invited me to sit with her and her son until he was free.

The lady was actress Anna Kashfi, who had played prominent roles in films like THE MOUNTAIN with Spencer Tracy and BATTLE HYMN with Rock Hudson, but was certainly best known as being the first wife of Marlon Brando, and the mother of his son, Christian.

I spent perhaps fifteen or twenty minutes chatting with the pleasant

Ms. Kashfi about this and that. My impression…

What a Character: Eddie Anderson

Posted by Dave Miller on August 16, 2015 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

"It is a sad fact of life that the Golden Age of Hollywood was not a Golden Age for African Americans. Particularly in the Thirties, African American characters were often outright stereotypes. It was the era of Stepin Fetchit and Willie Best, actors whose speciality was playing characters who were stereotypically lazy, dim witted, and illiterate. Even in an era when offensive stereotypes permeated everything from big budget feature films to Warner Brothers cartoons, however, there were African American actors whose work would change the image of blacks on film for the positive. Among these actors was comedian Eddie Anderson, best known for playing Jack Benny's valet Rochester on the long running Jack Benny Programme.…

    What I Learned from Summer Under the Stars

    Summer Under the Stars concludes today with the entire day devoted to the films of Shelley Winters. I thought I would look back on this month’s programming and ruminate on what I have learned as well as to make note of my favorite films. I invite readers to comment on their favorite moments from Summer […]

    The Ten Year Star Block

    Recently, I was having a conversation online about the curious way that people tend to listen to musicians in ten year blocks.  Bob Dylan has done continuous and extensive composing from the early sixties through to today.  Paul McCartney, the same.  Springsteen, same, except up by one decade.  And yet most people, even their fans, […]

    Go, Miss Mend, Go!

    I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but in TCM’s program descriptions, every single silent film shown is described with “In this silent film, …” as a sort of talismanic warning: Abandon All Hope All Ye Who Enter Here. The presumption is clear: silent films are slow, they’re old, they’re in B&W, they’re silent.  Better warn people so no […]

    Mundane Action: Vital, Important, Captivating

    Today on TCM, a celebration of Ingrid Bergman will bring us many of the cinematic legend’s greatest films as well as some lesser known ones.  Early in the day, her first film after exiting Hollywood, Stromboli, airs and it contains one of my favorite scenes in any movie of the decade.  That scene comes when […]

    Closing Act: Shelley Winters

    TCM’s Summer Under the Stars programming ends on August 31st with a bang featuring a batch of movies starring Shelley Winters. The blond, boozy, ballsy and brash starlet is one of my favorite actresses and on Monday you can watch her ignite the small screen in a number of notable roles, including her Oscar winning […]
