    Harry Anderson, the talented magician who became a three-time Emmy Award nominee as the star of the long-running NBC sitcom "Night Court," has died at the age of 65. He was found dead in his home in Asheville, N.C., where he had lived since 2006. Authorities said no foul play was suspected. Photo credit: The New York Times "I was never really an actor, I was a magician," Anderson said in 2014. "By the time they figured out that I couldn't act scared on the subway at 4 a.m., I already had a five-year contract." A magic enthusiast since his teen years, Anderson became a familiar guest performer on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" in the early 1980s. He was the guest host for the February 9, 1985 episode, which featured Bryan Adams as the musical guest. He also began making occasional appearances on the NBC comedy series "Cheers" as a con man named Harry "The Hat" Gittes. In January 1984, Anderson began starring in "Night Court," a half-hour sitcom that became a mainstay in NBC's Thursday night television lineup until May 1992. He played Judge Harry T. Stone in the series that focused on the key figures involved in the nighttime operations of a municipal court in Manhattan. Anderson received three consecutive Primetime Emmy nominations (1985-1987) as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his performances as Stone -- an amateur magician and passionate Mel Tormé fan (the great singer wound up making several guest appearances on the show). On a March 1988 installment of NBC's "The Tonight Show," Anderson talked about the art of magic with a kindred spirit -- "The Great Carsoni." Anderson was one of the stars of the two-part 1990 ABC miniseries "It," based on the 1986 horror novel by Stephen King. Anderson played the adult Richie Tozier -- one of several childhood friends bedeviled by a demon in the guise of a clown (Tim Curry). Anderson's co-stars also included John Ritter, Dennis Christopher, Richard Thomas and Tim Reid. A 2017 big-screen version of the tale was a blockbuster. A sequel is scheduled for next year. From 1993 to 1997, Anderson headlined the CBS sitcom "Dave's World," which was based on the career of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and syndicated columnist Dave Barry. Anderson played a fictionalized version of Barry and DeLane Matthews co-starred as his wife Beth. In 2000, Anderson moved to New Orleans, where he opened a French Quarter magic shop called Sideshow on Chartres Street and a club called Oswald's Speakeasy at Decatur Street and Esplanade Avenue. He struggled during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and would up relocating to Asheville the following year.

    I caught some of THE UNSUSPECTED (1947) the other day when it aired, but got called in to work. then i found it on OnDemand and checked it out. Not sure if it was part of the MICHAEL CURTIZ SPOTLIGHT or not, but he directed it. it's wonderfully shot with shadows and blind slits and fabulous Warner Bros. sets with sweeping staircases and pocket doors...everyone in it is RICH and does nothing but drink and smoke and wear dressing gowns and arrange gladiolas in the East Room. the plot is best summed up as THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD meets SUDDEN FEAR! (although they insist on cribbing obviously from LAURA too)- the use of a dictaphone as plot device is crucial (and even more ludicrous here- side note, CLAUDE RAINES has some MAD FAST record-editing skills.) the dialogue was kinda MURDER SHE WROTE, but the stars SOLD IT. Raines was having fun, TED NORTH was very handsome, HURD HATFIELD was in this, but ALL HONORS GO TO AUDREY TOTTER. I may as well say "AUDREY TOTTER and CLAUDE RAINES and a bunch of people who are not AUDREY TOTTER are in this film" because she is everything in it. whenever you see AUDREY TOTTER in a movie, she is up to no ***damn good. she plays the usual human/reptile hybrid from most of her films and she SLAYS in a variety of SLINKY BESEQUINED STUNNERS. She made every moment she was on screen hers. i love AUDREY TOTTER. If AUDREY TOTTER had starred in LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, she would have been filing her nails while Darryl Hickman drowned, and then grabbed an oar and whacked him when he doesn't go down fast enough because the lake air is POSITIVELY FRIZZING her hair and she simply has other things to do today."

    What really intrigues me as a native New Yorker is New York City (circa 1947), and particularly it shows all my old neighborhoods and roads that I was familiar with as a kid 10 years later. LaGuardia Airport, The Gasometers (gasholders) just North of the Queensboro Bridge (BTW I don't believe there are any of these left in the entire USA. Queensboro Bridge at 59th Street Manhattan, my best friends brother ran a waterbed store on 59th Street just East of that the upper level approach bridge that the car in on in this shot below: We also see the Toll Booths on Henry Hudson Bridge, Henry Hudson Bridge over the Harlem River, Grand Central Terminal at 42nd Street, old style wooden N.Y. State parkway lights, Motorcycle cops on Vernon Blvd. along Queensbridge Park with 59th Street Bridge, The Hell Gate and Triboro Bridges. Being originally a native New Yorker when I first viewed the film I noticed something off, the image is reversed. In the film it's this way: The correct camera view is below. We are looking from Wards Island South across the East River towards the North end of Astoria Park where both the Hell Gate and Triboro Bridges cross the river. You can see a part of Manhattan skyline under the Triboro Bridge. Just out of the picture to the left would be Con Edison's Astoria Powerhouse and two large gasometers. I used to sit on the grass across the river in Astoria Park and watch the ship, tug boat and barge traffic going back and forth on the East River.

    I'm still out "jury-wise" as to whether or not I actually believe the world of espionage the way it was portrayed in Fleming's Bond books and in the Bond movies EVER actually existed. I tend to think, "not really". If we're now to base the character on "reality" we'd have to accept a retired Bond now in his mid to late 80's, and possibly enduring a debilitating illness, or an addled old age. Perhaps at one point replacing M at his job and eventually retiring and now living in some assisted living facility, on some bland or liquid diet and diaper laden. And/or the NEW "hero" spy being....... "Bond, James Bond III" A non drinker/non-smoking vegan who possibly "Vapes" and drinks a lot of "cleanses" that might be "shaken, not blended" Sepiatone

    I saw The Eagle and the Hawk, which I had never heard of, even though it stars Fredric March, Cary Grant, Jack Oakie, and Carole Lombard. It's directed by Stuart Walker, a new name to me, with assistance from Mitchell Leisen. As Ben M said in his introduction, it was written to cash in on the success of Howard Hawks' The Dawn Patrol. (I've never seen the Hawks film, just the very good remake with Errol Flynn, David Niven, and Basil Rathbone). Fredric March is an ace pilot for the RAF during WWI. Cary Grant is his rival, a screw-up as a pilot though perhaps too successful as a gunner (called "observers," because their main task is to photograph enemy installations). March succeeds in mission after mission while his observers are killed, and the pressure begins to mount. On furlough the only person who understands his feelings is a character known in the credits as "the Beautiful Woman," appropriately played by Carole Lombard, who makes the most of her one appearance. Jack Oakie provides some comic relief. As in The Dawn Patrol, the death of a young and enthusiastic recruit creates a crisis, and as in many movies, the hero's rival is the one who finally understands and appreciates him. Fredric March has several big dramatic scenes which he plays very well. As is often the case in his early films, Cary Grant isn't yet the actor he would become, but he's still reasonably effective. I would guess that Mitchell Leisen had something to do with Carole Lombard's look and her outfit; Leisen knew how to make his stars look good. Leisen and Lombard became close friends. The Eagle and the Hawk is not especially well paced in the early going; the film mainly relies on the script, the actors, and the aerial footage, some of it taken from Wings. It is surprisingly dark in places, with its consideration of battle fatigue, suicide, and the morality of shooting down enemy fighters who have parachuted from their plane.

    Kate McKinnon, playing conservative TV and radio host Laura Ingraham, said on this week's SNL that she should "have the right to bully people without being bullied in return." That seems to be a common sentiment among today's conservatives. They feel that the 1st Amendment means that not only do they have the right to say anything they wish, anywhere they wish, anytime they wish, but that there should be no ramifications for said speech. That guarantee is not found anywhere in the 1st Amendment, and I would think the party that likes to name drop the "founding fathers" at every turn would have a greater grasp of that sort of thing.

    Yesterday I tried to watch The Letter but got nauseated with all that gunfire so I had to stop because I believe in gun control. Tonight I'll try to watch Hot Spell if I can stand it. Yesterday I had a pot of grumpkin shanks and horse hocks, a rasher of bacon, a wedge of hard sharp Pentonti cheese, hot black honeyed bread, and a few jiggers of vegan sausage juices. It all began with a appetizer of marinated eaglet hatchlings with goose egg whites smothered with catsup. And tonight I start my diet having a simple of meal of dehyrdated fruit ruffage and non-fat white boar cheese with fry bread and a glass or two of pistachio-flavored wine.

    Saturday April 21 10 am (EST) Tarzan Triumphs (1943) The first and, for my money, best of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzans once the series moved from MGM to RKO. This one has much war time propaganda, with the Germans invading the African jungle and Tarzan, initially, acting like an isolationist. There was much cheering in the theatres at the time when Tarzan, having had enough of Nazi atrocities, suddenly declared while walking towards the camera, "Now, TARZAN make war!" This was also one of two Tarzan films in which there was no Jane, Maureen O'Sullivan having left the series with the last of the MGMs. As a substitute for her, RKO cast beautiful Frances Gifford, fresh off her serial success as Nyoka in Jungle Girl. Not only was Gifford lovely to behold with an innocent sexuality but she had a warm and appealing screen personality (quite frankly, far more so than Maureen O'Sullivan, for my money). As a young boy watching Tarzan Trumphs repeatedly on television I fell seriously in love with this actress. It was only later that I learned of the tragedy of Gifford's life. She was in a car accident in 1947, with head injuries serious enough that her acting career was put on hold for a few years. Later those head injuries are said to have contributed to mental health issues, to the extent that the actress was institutionalized in mental health facilities off and on for 25 years starting in 1958. In 1983 Gifford was found working as a librarian in Pasadena, CA.. Her final years were lived in obscurity, dying of emphysema in a convalescent centre at age 73. So here's hats off to a beautiful lady in Tarzan Triumphs, years before a road accident would change her life forever.

    Action in the North Atlantic (1943) - Maritime war action from Warner Brothers and director Lloyd Bacon. The film follows the crew of a Merchant Marine vessel, the SS Seawitch, including Captain Steve Jarvis (Raymond Massey) and first mate Lt. Joe Rossi (Humphrey Bogart). Along with their wisecracking crew of veteran seamen, they try to get valuable goods and materials across the Atlantic for the war effort, trying to avoid German u-boats, destroyers and bomber planes. Also featuring Alan Hale, Dane Clark, Julie Bishop, Ruth Gordon, Sam Levene, Peter Whitney, Dick Hogan, Glenn Strange, Kane Richmond, Kirk Alyn, and William Hopper. The title says it all, as few films outside of serials spent as much time on action scenes as this one does, featuring lots of torpedoes, explosions, depth charges, more torpedoes, gunfire, and even more torpedoes. Massey and Bogart are both fine in bare-bones roles, basically just bringing their usual screen personas. This is very much a morale-boosting propaganda piece, but it's an entertaining one.

    The Post (2017) - True-story newspaper drama from 20th Century Fox, Dreamworks, and Reliance Entertainment, and director Steven Spielberg. The film details the lead-up to the 1971 publishing by the New York Times and the Washington Post of the so-called "Pentagon Papers", a top secret report on America's involvement in the Vietnam conflict. Post publisher Kay Graham (Meryl Streep), who has only recently taken control after the suicide of her husband, is struggling to keep the paper afloat in tough financial times, as well as trying to learn the business from the ground up. Hard-nosed editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) is determined to print the sensitive documents regardless of threats from the White House, and it all leads to an inevitable showdown with far-reaching ramifications. Also featuring Bruce Greenwood, Bob Oedenkirk, David Cross, Tracy Letts, Sarah Paulson, Carrie C-oon, Bradley Whitford, Alison Brie, Jesse Plemons, Pat Healy, John Rue, Philip Casnoff, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Costabile, and Matthew Rhys as Daniel Ellsberg. I applaud Spielberg and the rest of the filmmakers for their effort to bring an intelligent, adult drama to the screen, no easy feat in 2017. The story would have seemed a bit old-fashioned and out-of-sync with today's issues, but then Trump was elected and we entered a new era of political-journalism relations that make this tale more timely than ever. How much control should the government have over what the press publishes? Where is the line drawn between genuine concern for national security and personal desire to cover one's own reputation? The central performances by Streep and Hanks are good, and while they both adopt minor affected speech patterns, their characterizations are not too broad. It seems at times that they occupy different films, as they each are dealing with their own concerns that only occasionally seem to intersect. The large supporting cast is largely made up of talented TV performers, many of whom I never expected to see in a serious Oscar-nominated picture. (7/10) Source: Fox Blu-ray.

    Cry Danger ! ! All right ! Yes, noir fans, if you haven't already seen this cool film, try to watch or record it this weekend. It's got Dick Powell in full noir mode (shirley everyone likes Dick Powell as tough guy), along with Rhonda Fleming, also in full femme noir mode. These two factors alone would make it worth the watch. But ! It's also got Richard Erdman ( he of "The Blue Gardenia" and "Stalag 17", just to name a few) as Dick's booze-sodden sidekick, dispensing wit and cynicism in equal measure, William Conrad as the brains behind the bad guys (surprise !), and a perky Jean Porter as a sweet, although perhaps not-so-innocent "muffin" (or "mouse" or "doll"). All this, plus location shooting in Los Angeles' Bunker Hill neighbourhood, AND a trailer park ! Ok, it probably wouldn't have been fun to live in a trailer park, but it's definitely fun to watch other people living in a trailer park, at least in a film noir from 1951. Set your DVRs, or cancel your church-going plans, or do whatever it takes to catch this one.

    I would like to alert Noir Alley fans to a somewhat special showing coming up this weekend on Apr 21 & 22, namely the film Cry Danger (1951). I first became aware of Cry Danger when it was shown on TCM during the primetime hours back on January 17, 2013. The theme for that evening was “Noir City” and featured films selected by Eddie Muller, who was co-host for the introductions along with host Robert Osborne. Cry Danger was the first film shown that night, and was featured because it had recently been restored by the Film Noir Foundation that Eddie is associated with. (The restored film had first been shown in public at the TCM Film Festival the year before.) To my knowledge the restored version of Cry Danger has not been shown on TCM since that night in January 2013, so this is a relatively rare opportunity to catch it again.

    A two young women, floozie Dixie (Phyllis Brooks) and mysterious Poppy (Gene Tierney), arrive in Shanghai, a very memorably bizarre, sleazy, and oily looking "Doctor" Omar (Victor Mature) spots down and out Dixie and basically pimp-like picks her up and conveys her to a huge den of iniquity, an ornate gambling house/brothel visually cueing Dante's Inferno owned by "Mother" Gin Sling (Ona Munson) a Classic Dragon-lady who gives Mature a run for his money in the bizarre department, looking almost like a Chinese Medusa with a hairstyle that resembles writhing snakes. When I first saw Munson I could have almost sworn she was Gloria Swanson she'll really remind you of Swanson's performance in Sunset Boulevard hell she even sounds like Swanson unless Swanson was doing a Munson interpretation in Sunset. . . Based on a play by John Colton, Sternberg according to TCM's Robert Osborne (back when I first watched this), had a lot of trouble getting the original material past the Hayes Code, and its not hard to see why when you see the film. The original play was about a brothel, Gin Sling was the madam in fact her name was Madam G*o*d*d*a*m*n in the play, "Doctor" Omar was probably a pimp/abortionist, Poppy was addicted to opium and at one point in the play declares that she is a nymphomaniac. Anyway it may behoove the Noir aficionado to track down the play and see what might have been. When Mature deposits Dixie into "Mother's" clutches and "chorus girl" Dixie visually clues us in to her true profession "p*r*o*s*t*i*t*u*t*e" when she spreads her legs as she sprawls upon a chair displaying her runny nylons to a leering Mature. Afterwards in the huge gambling hall sitting at the bar Poppy (an incredibly beautiful Tierney) is spotted by Omar sitting with an Indian where she remarks "It smells so incredibly evil", intoxicated by the very repugnance of the place, she adds "I didn't think a place like this existed except in my imagination." Omar zeros in inducing her to try her luck at roulette. She ends up hocking her jewels to stay in the game. Sir Guy Charteris (Huston), wealthy entrepreneur, has purchased a large area of Shanghai, and is forcing Gin Sling to vacate her holdings by the coming Chinese New Year. Gin Sling, who has found out that Poppy is Charteris' wayward daughter, has instructed the smarmy Doctor Omar to hook Poppy deeper and deeper into an addiction to gambling, alcohol, and probably opium. Gin Sling, eventually realizes that Charteris was her long-ago husband who she thinks abandoned her and she now plans her revenge by inviting Charteris to a Chinese New Year dinner party to expose his past indiscretions. Charteris, however, has his own hole card up his sleeve. This film has been called a proto Noir more for its subject matter than for its "look" its more in the traditional Hollywood lighting style but its interesting never the less. A cast of hundreds is employed to replicate Shanghai and you will spot a bald headed Mike Mazurki playing a coolie who utters the closing line about Chinese New Year which I'll bet Polanski used as a reference in Chinatown. Caught this on TCM entertaining, 6-7/10

    As I recall, von Stroheim’s vision was to film the book McTeague page by page. Harry Carr, writing for a film magazine in 1924, viewed the original version of the film. “It was a magnificent piece of work, but it was forty-five reels long. We went into the projecting room at 10:30 in the morning; we staggered out at 8:00 that night. … Episodes come along that you think have no bearing on the story, then twelve or fourteen reels later, it hits you with a crash. For stark, terrible realism and marvelous artistry, it is the greatest picture I have ever seen.”

    The Shanghai Gesture (1941) - Bizarre, exotic drama from United Artists and director Josef von Sternberg. In the polyethnic city of Shanghai, various unusual characters cross paths in the gambling den of Mother Gin Sling (Ona Munson). These include rich girl Poppy (Gene Tierney), womanizer Dr. Omar (Victor Mature), stranded chorus girl Dixie (Phyllis Brooks), and many others. Things get complicated when English businessman Sir Guy Charteris (Walter Huston) buys the block containing Gin Sling's place and he orders the place shut down. Also featuring Albert Bassermann, Eric Blore, Ivan Lebedeff, Mike Mazurki, Michael Dalmatoff, and Maria Ouspenskaya as the Amah. This fairly lurid stuff, obviously neutered a bit by the Production Code, but still managing to be salacious enough to upset some. This ended up being the final completed American film for director von Sternberg. Munson as dragon lady Gin Sling is a riot, with her ridiculous hair-style certainly memorable. Gene Tierney looks terrific, while Victor Mature looks appropriately sleazy. I'm not sure how good this really was, but it was outrageous enough to entertain me quite a bit. It earned Oscar nominations for Best Art Direction, and Best Score (Richard Hageman). One unusual bit about the movie is this entry at the end of the films opening credits: "And a large cast of "HOLLYWOOD EXTRAS" who without expecting credit or mention stand ready day and night to do their best - - and who at their best are more than good enough to deserve mention."
