Lauren Bacall, 89

Sultry screen siren Lauren Bacall, who rose to fame in the 1940s opposite her husband Humphrey Bogart in films such as “To Have and Have Not” and “The Big Sleep,” died Tuesday, The Bogart Estate said. She was 89.

Variety reported Bacall suffered a suspected stroke.

“With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall,” the Humphrey Bogart Estate tweeted.

The managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, Robbert J.F. de Klerk, said that Bacall died at home, but declined to give further details.

The actress, known for her throaty voice and seductive stare, made her screen debut opposite Bogart at age 19 in “To Have and Have Not"-- a film in which she also memorably said, “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and… blow.”

After seeing her in that film, director Billy Wilder referred to Bacall as “the girl with ‘the look,’” and the phrase stuck.

Bogart was married at the time he met Bacall, and, within months, divorced his wife. The couple married in 1945 and co-starred in three more films, “The Big Sleep,” “Dark Passage”, and “Key Largo.”

Bogart died of lung cancer in 1957 and in 1961 Bacall married actor Jason Robards, Jr. They divorced in 1969.

She also appeared such films as “How to Marry a Millionaire,” “Designing Woman” and “Murder on the Orient Express.”

Life of Pi: A Truly Beautiful Film

We watched Life of Pi last night. Fantastic.

Add this one to the rather short list of magical films. Slightly artsy, beautiful to watch, and an easy enjoyable storyline that makes you consider the infinite. This is an adorable movie, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Life of Pi won several Oscars, a couple BAFTAs, an Academy Award or two, plus a Saturn award from the Sci-Fi/fantasy film folks.

How short is the list? Well, I haven’t seen every film out there, but for modern films my list goes

The Gods Must Be Crazy
Like Water For Chocolate
The Secret Of Roan Innish
Chocolate
The Shipping News
Moonrise Kingdom (just barely)
Don Juan DeMarco (maybe)
Life of Pi

I’m sure there are others. And I’ve probably forgotten several more. But all of these have that special something that makes them sparkle in your heart. They glue you to the screen, and when they’re over you come away happy, thoughtful, and fully satisfied.

I looked it up online, and Life of Pi was supposed to be in 3D. Really? I have a 3D TV set, but we didn’t know, so we didn’t watch it that way. It wasn’t at all necessary, and that special effect shizz might actually be a distraction. But thinking about it, I can see where the 3D stuff would fit in. Big whoop.

It’s in English, although there are versions in other languages out there. Not that you hardly even need the dialogue; you absorb the story right into your skin. Cinematic osmosis.

Ken Has Lost The Frequency

They Really Are Batshit Insane!

Redford To Play Rather In “TRUTH”

The Story Of Bush’s Time In The Air National Guard



Horry clap, I can’t believe my eyes. What’s next, “NUMBERS” the story of how brave Dan Rather (courage Dan, courage) went it alone against basic addition, and proved how Bush couldn’t have won the election?

Un. Friggin. Believable.

Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power.

The book, written by Rather’s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on some documents that were suspected to be forgeries.

Cate Blanchett is attached to play Mapes, who was fired after the scandal, which was dubbed “Rathergate.”

Mapes’ memoir, Truth and Duty, was published in 2005. The Peabody Award-winning producer had worked for CBS’ 60 Minutes since 1999. After Rather’s report on Bush aired, it became the subject of harsh criticism, and an internal investigation was launched. Subsequently, Mapes was accused of lapses in judgment and was fired, while Rather’s career and reputation were jeopardized. Both Mapes and Rather have stuck by their reporting and neither they nor CBS has ever issued an official retraction.

“lapses in judgement”. “harsh criticism”. “reputation jeopardized”. All of which translate back into English as “lying buckets of rotting dog turds foisted on the public as facts by mentally deranged leftists. Outrageous behavior finally caused their public implosion and then forced resignation (Do you have a degree in math, Jim?).

Wow. I think every ticket ought to come with a bottomless popcorn container and a handful of Kleenex. What a total masturbatory fantasy. And in the ending, I’m sure Al Gore wins Florida* by a huge margin of undiscovered voters named Chad who didn’t really vote for Buchannan after all.

James Vanderbilt, the screenwriter behind The Amazing Spider-Man and White House Down, will adapt the screenplay, and make his directorial debut with the project, which Mythology Entertainment is producing.
...
Redford, who most recently appeared All Is Lost and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is repped by WME and Jackoway Tyerman.



In glorious days of happy people’s democratic free republic of wonderful Soviet Union, actors and writers like this would be dead before end of scene one. “We’re shooting filmski!” “Nyet, filmski is shooting you!”

Sigh. Sometimes I miss the good old days.

End of an Era

Mikey Rooney, 93

image

Entertainment legend Mickey Rooney, who bounced on stage before he was two and rarely left the spotlight for the next nine decades, first winning fame as the teenage Andy Hardy and then going on to appear in over 100 films, along with stints on television and in the theater, died Sunday at the age of 93.
...
Rooney was the consummate performer. “I’ve always enjoyed the lights of the theater,” he wrote in his autobiography “Life is Too Short.” “No wonder that even now, when I open a refrigerator door, I feel like performing.”

Along the way, the diminutive Rooney also made headlines for marrying eight wives, including sultry actress Ava Gardner. “Always get married early in the morning,” he once quipped. “That way, if it doesn’t work out, you haven’t wasted a whole day.”

But when he died, Rooney had been married for 35 years to his last wife, Jan Chamberlin, who survives him. He also is survived by eight children – a ninth died in 2006.

Rooney was the last surviving big male star from the 1930s and one of the very few actors left who had gone from silent movies to 21st century films.
...
Born Joseph Yule Jr. on September 23, 1920 to vaudeville actors, Rooney crawled onstage at 14 months, a little harmonica around his neck, and his father scooped him up and introduced him to the audience as Sonny Yule. By 17 months he was part of his parents’ routine in a specially tailored tux.

By 14, he had changed his name to Mickey Rooney and signed with MGM Studios; three years later he landed the role of Andy Hardy in the 14-film series that brought him fame and an abiding friendship with Judy Garland.
...
“I don’t regret anything I’ve ever done,” he once said. “I only wish I could have done more.”

Don’t Cross The Streams

Sad. Director, film star, prolific screenplay writer, and all around funny guy

Harold Ramis

(Ghostbusters, SCTV, et al) died yesterday at only 69 years old.



Ramis, a longtime North Shore resident, was surrounded by family when he died at 12:53 a.m. from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels, his wife Erica Mann Ramis said. He was 69. …
Ramis leaves behind a formidable body of work, with writing credits on such enduring comedies as “National Lampoon’s Animal House” (which upon its 1978 release catapulted the film career of John Belushi, with whom Ramis acted at Second City), “Stripes” (1981) and “Ghostbusters” (in which Ramis also co-starred) plus such directing efforts as “Caddyshack” (1980), “National Lampoon’s Vacation” (1983), “Groundhog Day” and “Analyze This”.

Aykroyd, Murray, and Ramis in a still from Ghostbusters



“Well, for me, it’s the relationship between comedy and life - that’s the edge I live on, and maybe it’s my protection against looking at the tragedy of it all. It’s seeing life in balance. Comedy and tragedy co-exist. You can’t have one without the other. I’m of the school that anything can be funny, if seen from a comedic point of view.”

on stage and in film since 1944 and before, and still at it. Angela Lansbury, Goddess of the 40s

I think I may be a bit self indulgent here but stay with me for a minute or two.  I have my reasons.  Aside from being in love with an image of a woman from the 1940s.

image

This won’t be the first time I have posted photos of Angela Lansbury here.  In fact, it isn’t even the second time.  It may be the third time but there’s so much more than photos. I learned some things quite by accident today, and also heard an interview on the radio.  She’s making a return to the London stage in a very special theater.  That’s one reason for my interest.

1944. That would make her age 19 in this shot, if it taken in or after October of that year.
image

I have long held the view which I know is one opinion and worth more to me then it might be to our readers.  That opinion being, she was once the single most beautiful woman in Hollywood and possibly the world.  Hollywood never really knew how to use her talent, in spite of her being nominated for the Oscar 2wice. In fact, in 1944 she was nominated for her first film when she was 18, some months shy of her 19th birthday. 
She was again nominated the following year for another film.  At the time, she was the youngest to receive a nomination.

image

For me it all began when.

Going back a very long time ago, I saw a movie the title of which is long forgotten although the image of a blonde Goddess planted itself firmly inside my head.
It was not a large or leading part, she didn’t as I recall have many lines, it was in “glorious technicolor” as Hollywood referred to the process.  But I didn’t know who she was.  And it was many yrs later that I discovered her name.  AND .... it was only due to my association with bmews and the net, that I found early photos of her.  Which at the time I shared on this site and one or two of you expressed some surprise that they were looking at the actress they knew only from the TV show,” Murder, She Wrote”, which was not my kind of thing and so I never watched it.  By then of course the image of the sex siren had given way to, well, hate to say it.  Old age.

Which now brings me back to where I wanted to be to explain something.
During the radio interview she stated that she was never a beautiful woman and was thankful for that, because as film beauty fades, so do the parts and especially if you’re a leading actress.

Mom and:  not so pretty daughter?
image

However, she continued by saying that she was always able to get roles as a character actress. And the characters got older with her.  Of course ... she has been highly successful on the stage over the years, until getting the role as Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote.
What floored me was her belief if true, that she was not a beautiful girl or woman.  Horse feathers.  Good gosh.  Her bar must be impossibly high.
How does one get above Goddess rank?  Should that not be the very summit? 

Angela Brigid Lansbury, CBE (born 16 October 1925) is a British actress and singer in theatre, television and films. Her career has spanned eight decades and earned an unsurpassed number of performance Tony Awards (tied with Julie Harris and Audra McDonald), with five wins. Her first film appearance was in the film Gaslight (1944) as a conniving maid, for which she received an Academy Award nomination at the age of eighteen; she earned her second nomination the following year for The Picture of Dorian Gray. Among her other films are The Manchurian Candidate (1962), Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Anastasia (1997).

The 88-year-old actress is about to perform in London’s West End for the first time in almost 40 years, as the medium Madame Arcati in Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit.”
Lansbury won a Tony Award for the role on Broadway.
Last month the actress, who was born in London and moved to the United States in her teens, was made a dame — the female equivalent of a knight — by Queen Elizabeth II.
She said she was pleased to be performing at London’s Gielgud Theatre, where her mother, actress Moyna Macgill, made her stage debut in 1918.
“She was a lovely actress,” Lansbury said. “I get all my talent from her.”

the bbc

Angela’s twin brothers, Edgar Jr., and Bruce , both went on to become Broadway producers, but Bruce is better known for his work on television, such as the series The Wild Wild West, Mission Impossible, and his sister’s Murder She Wrote.

In her later years, Angela Lansbury’s mother made appearances on such television series as Studio One, The Twilight Zone, Dr. Kildare, Mister Ed, I Dream of Jeannie and My Favorite Martian.
She died of throat cancer in Los Angeles, just a few weeks shy of her 80th birthday.

“I’m in a very enviable position, being able to work like this 45 years later. It’s always beginning! I never have a sense of finishing up, just new things beginning. When I die, they’re going to carry me off a stage.”

Angela Lansbury

Last Cruise For The Love Boat

You are now officially old ... the Pacific Princess has been sent to the scrapyard.


Nothing Romantic About This Trip

image



ISTANBUL —
The MS Pacific, a cruise ship made famous by the popular U.S. 1970s television show “The Love Boat,” has sailed its final voyage to a ship-breaking yard on Turkey’s Aegean Sea coast, a shipping group said on Wednesday.

Called the Pacific Princess when it was on the long-running comedy, the iconic 13,500-tonne, 171-m-long (561-foot-long) vessel will be stripped for its metal and parts, said Ersin Ceviker of the Ship Recyclers’ Association of Turkey.

...

“This ship has undergone several modifications over its lifespan. It had been decommissioned for five years, and renovation now would have been too costly,” Ceviker said.

Turkey’s Izmir Ship Recycling Co. acquired the 42-year-old Pacific for 2.5 million euros ($3.3 million).

The vintage cruiseliner arrived from Genoa, Italy, at the breakers in the seaside town of Aliaga in Turkey late on Tuesday after a difficult trip in a violent storm, Ceviker said.

The Pacific began taking on water and required the help of additional tugboats to make it to Aliaga. It was now listing on its starboard side at Aliaga.

the breaker’s yard in Aliaga Turkey

Scrap steel currently sells for $383 per metric ton in Turkey, 25% less than at it’s peak 3 years ago.

Leyal, the ship breaker, has managed to make this dirty and dangerous task a “green” business. This is the same bone yard that the HMS Invincible and HMS Ark Royal went to (one of which is still visible on Bing maps).

LEYAL Ship Recycling Ltd. (LEYAL Gemi Söküm Ldt Şti) is the leading ship dismantling and recycling company in Turkey. Established in early 1980s, the Company has evolved to become the owner of the largest ship dismantling facilities in the country. With approximately 5 hectares of land dedicated to ship dismantling, the company is capable of directly or indirectly processing up to 100,000 tons -nominal capacity- of steel per year. LEYAL is fully licensed for its ship recycling operations by the relevant competent authorities in Turkey, namely the Ministry of Environment and Forests, the Undersecretariat of Maritime Affairs, and the Ministry of Labour and Social Security (in Turkey the three ministries jointly regulate the ship recycling industry).

The Company’s recycling facilities are located near the city of Aliaga on Turkey’s Aegean coast ( map link )
...
Working with LEYAL also carries the stamp of approval of the International Ship Recycling Association (ISRA), a Dutch non-government organization formed to promote safe and environmentally sound ship recycling around the world, especially in the absence of globally enforceable “green” standards for ship recycling.

LEYAL is your reliable partner for the safe and environmentally sound recycling of your obsolete seagoing vessels assisting you in emphasizing your “green” CSR credentials. In a rapidly changing environment, LEYAL’s management was quick to recognize the difference between traditional ship breaking vs. ship recycling that contributes to Green Growth by offering a high standard and cost effective operation in line with the new international “green” norms.

best Nick Cage flick ever

We caught the semi- art-house film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin on TV last night. It’s a WWII love story starring Nicholas Cage and Penelope Cruz. Yeah, he does this cheesy Italian accent throughout. And the film’s story is a takeoff on a book written about a terrible wartime atrocity committed by the Nazis, wherein that atrocity (the execution of thousands of surrendered Italian soldiers on this little Greek island) is rather minimized. But the cinematography is beautiful, and in HD it’s stunning. It’s a film you love to watch, with a lightweight story that doesn’t get in the way too much. The music is good too. And even with the no-makeup, slightly grubby, wartime-poverty-on-some-forgotten-island look, Cruz looks great. It must suck so much to be that beautiful all the time. So it was a nice way to spend a couple hours. I think this was my third viewing of this 2001 film, which seems to be about the right frequency. Once every 4 or 5 years. Any more often than that and Cage’s stereotype dripping portrayal of an artillery captain more concerned about his men’s ability to sing opera than to fight the war they’re involved in, while drinking, dancing, and charming the panties off the gorgeous but lonely local girl, would loose the magic. And that little touch of magic is what makes this film such a standout. Beats the heck out of watching Die Hard XVIII for the millionth time.

Armchair Bridge Hunting

Under The Dome, But Still On The Internet



If you’ve been watching the new CBS “lifeboat drama” Under The Dome as I have, you’ve seen dozens of scenes take place on and under an old white truss bridge somewhere on the edge of town. Leave it to Drew to hunt that bridge down posthaste.


image
scene cap: Deputy Esquivel confronts the Army and the media from her side of the invisible Dome barrier.

image
scene cap: Joe McAlister and Norrie Hill walking across the bridge. Of course I found a pic with a redhead in it!

Note the bridge’s laced verticals, the plate strengthened split diagonals, and the original open lattice guard rail. These are all earmarks of bridges built circa 1890-1920. This isn’t a pin-connected truss, it’s a riveted one, so that puts it towards the newer end of that date range. Call it about 1905-1920.



This is the Harry Forden Bridge in New Hanover County North Carolina, on the north side of the town of Wilmington. It’s also known as the North 6th Avenue Bridge, and it crosses over an abandoned rail line. It was built in 1911.

image

We have a match. Another TV bridge, successfully hunted.

Stick a fork in it, we’re done: red house, white house, teal house: match the houses in the screen caps at the top of this post with this snip from Bing Maps (34.24361, -77.94278). Perfect match.
image


That wasn’t too hard at all. Took me less than half an hour, compared with the 10 days it took me to find the bridge from House. I’m getting pretty good at this stuff I think.

My Choice For Sophie

image




Young English actress Sophie Turner, currently playing Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Having read the books, I’m not too sympathetic to her character, although the TV show is not done in the same light and her Sansa is coming around quite a lot. And just because the actress is tall, shapely, and has long red hair (dyed) doesn’t mean I’m all that attracted to her, though Ms. Turner in character is quite noticeable. This picture, a still from a new movie she’s now involved in, changes her look almost entirely. And I have to say, I like it very much. Click to pic for a larger than life version.

In character as Sansa Stark, who often seems to be rather a brat princess. At least in print.

Makeup and lighting ... wow, that old Hollywood magic.

Which Leads To

image  image




This striking young woman is actress Tina Majorino. Lately she’s been appearing on the TV shows Grey’s Anatomy and Bones, but a few years before that she played Deb on the oddball cult film Napoleon Dynamite and it’s spin-off series.

How on earth do I get to her from Obama and the UN’s disgusting Small Arms Treaty? The wobbling back and forth of influences on IOTUS (the Irrelevance of The United States) and the press’s Will He Sign or Won’t He Sign puts me in mind of the song of the Mock Turtle from Alice In Wonderland.



“Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail,
“There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail.
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle – will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?

“You can really have no notion how delightful it will be
When they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters, out to sea!”
But the snail replied “Too far, too far!” and gave a look askance --
Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, could not join the dance.

...



And way back in 1999, young Tina played Alice in one of those “very special” Hallmark TV movies called ... Alice In Wonderland. Charming film which I saw but once, the song stuck in my head, and for many years I thought Alice was played by a very young Alyson Hannigan ...

image image
Tina as Alice, and Alyson just being a hot wild redhead

So there you go. A peek inside the workings of my head. Faced with one of those Yes/No moments, my mind brings up this little metronomic tune. 1-2 3-4, 1-2 3-4, 1-2 3-4 1-2-3. 1-2 3-4, 1-2 3-4, 1-2 3-4, 1-2-3. Will-you walk-a little faster said-a whiting to-a-snail.
