He was tyrannical, yet intelligent, speaking five languages - all of them badly. His English was mangled to when he wanted a puddle on the set, someone brought him a dog. But he knew how to make films. Ten performers were nominated for their…Continue

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

Remembering Carole Lombard

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on January 16, 2017 at 8:23am 0 Comments

Monday, January 16th, marks the 75th anniversary of the death of Carole Lombard in a plane crash outside of Las Vegas.

Monday also marks the 25th anniversary of the debut of my one-woman stage play, LOMBARD.

It opened, under my direction, in the Greater Los Angeles area on January 16, 1992 with Taylor Leigh playing the title role.

How I'm Surviving Without Cable TV (but not without TCM)

Posted by Rosie Sayer on January 10, 2017 at 4:55pm 3 Comments

I finally got thoroughly fed up with my provider and canceled not only my cable but also my land line. I now have only Internet.

The thing I was most concerned about was losing TCM. It's really the only channel I care about. But because of another account with a different provider, I am able to log into Watch TCM, which is live streaming of the channel over the Internet. This is the most amazing thing. Here I am in my quiet house, without TV or telemarketers calling all the time, and I'm still able to watch TCM. Not only that, but I found an HDMI cable I must have bought at some point, and I hooked up my laptop to the 42" TV screen, and now I can watch TCM on my TV without actually having a TV subscription.

If I get tired of TCM, I can dig into my own collection of some 800 classic movies, or I can watch stuff I've never seen on I am loving this! I should have done this long ago.

I do not miss at all the "infotainment" news shows that report on innuendo and rumors as if they are facts and interview people who should not even be taken seriously as if they have something important to say. I didn't watch those anyway. I also do not miss the endless commercials on every channel except TCM. I don't even miss the weather channel. I have an app for that on my cell phone.

I'm happy that I finally pulled the plug on the cable and the land line.

Vigilante Justice: The Big Heat (1953)

William P. McGivern created Harry Callaghan, better known as Dirty Harry. Not literally. He created the literary environment that made Harry Callaghan possible, as well as Paul Kersey, the vigilante at the center of Death Wish (1974). McGivern was the writer who gave us The Big Heat (1953) and Rogue Cop (1954), both made into movies in […]

There Are No Safe Spaces: An Arturo Ripstein Double Feature

Of late, I’ve been exploring the work of director Arturo Ripstein after coming across El castillo de la pureza aka The Castle of Purity (1972) and Foxtrot (1975) streaming on FilmStruck. Ripstein was brought up in Mexico’s thriving post-war film industry by his Polish-Mexican father, a prominent producer who cultivated his son’s cinematic interests. During […]

A Guide to Picking Daisies (1966)

Following up on my look at one of my favorite films of the Czech New Wave, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970), it seems only appropriate to follow up with another astonishing film from that period told from the perspective of young women: Daisies (1966). However, this one’s a bit different as I’d also […]
