Dorothy McGuire?

I ran a search for discussions of Dorothy McGuire.  Amazingly, I only found four mentions of her back in 2008 and 2009.  That's it?  What a great actress she was.  How can anyone forget "Gentleman's Agreement"?  Of course, she has previous stellar…Continue

Boris Karloff's Article on TCM

"When I was nine I played the demon king in Cinderella and it launched me on a long and happy life of being a monster."

-Boris Karloff

"As the daughter of pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley inherited radical ideas about the intellectual abilities and sexual freedoms of women.

She learned these ideas from her mother’s books rather than her presence, however, because Wollstonecraft died soon after her birth. Anne Mellor points to compelling evidence that the undated events of Frankenstein are set over the nine months of Mary Shelley’s own gestation, in 1797, with the date of Victor Frankenstein’s climactic death coinciding almost exactly with Mary Wollstonecraft’s. Created lovelessly as a theoretical experiment, Frankenstein’s monster is the ultimate icon of the unmothered child.

Mary’s own beloved father, philosopher William Godwin, would disown his teen-aged daughter when she became pregnant by married poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, a deeply personal betrayal that contradicted his theoretical conviction in anarchy, and motivated Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin to rename herself Mary…

Edward Sorel

Posted by Dave Miller on August 16, 2016 at 9:29am 0 Comments

Edward Sorel, the award winning caricaturist has also written a book about the 1936 Mary Astor Custody Battle—Mary Astor’s Purple Diary. I am fortunate in having just read an advance review copy and can tell you that Mr. Sorel has illustrated and written a hilarious look of a mass media circus before television, 24-hour Cable news, the IPad, IPhone, Facebook and even Twitter. It is a journey back in time that will seem utterly pre-historic to the millennial generation but no less fascinating. Mr. Sorel chose to write and illustrate a book that makes light not so much on the participants but, instead, the Media which, like a ravenous pack of wolves, fed on a scandal of their own making turning these events—in the newspapers at least—into a farce of the first order. In time it became a story where legend would sublimate fact. It is this legend that Mr. Sorel writes about in his delightfully humorous book. Below are some illustrations from the book with a brief description of how the book came to be written. This material appeared on The New Yorker Website some months back. As I didn’t ask their permission to use it here, if The New Yorker wants me to remove it, just write me and I will do as requested but don’t expect me to do it right away. I’ll need some really threatening letters first. If they allow them to stay I will be eternally grateful

The Greatest Films of the 21st Century

I suffer from chronic list fatigue, initially eager to scroll through the latest re-ordering of greatest hits, but inevitably collapse into a heap before I ingest the whole thing. Enter the BBC to test my illness. Yesterday they unveiled the results of their mammoth “Greatest Films of the 21st Century” poll, in which 177 critics submitted […]
