Tonight Maryann Brandon joins Illeana Douglas for another installment of Trailblazing Women in Film.

 

No, she's not the Marianne Dashwood Brandon from Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. She's a contemporary, trailblazing woman....

 

"Maryann Brandon has experience working as an editor, director, and producer in film, animation and television. Her last film PASSENGERS was released December 2016. Her other work as editor can be seen on Lucasfilm’s STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, Universal’s ENDLESS LOVE, Paramount’s STAR TREK and STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, and the DreamWorks animated films HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and KUNG FU PANDA 2. She has also edited JJ Abram’s SUPER 8, and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III and is currently editing THE DARKEST MINDS for 20th Century Fox.

 

She received an OSCAR nomination, EDDY nomination, and won the SATURN AWARD, for her work on Star Wars:The Force Awakens. Other awards and nominations include Star Trek, Star Trek into Darkness, and How to Train Your Dragon. She collaborated with JJ Abrams on ALIAS which she received an EMMY nomination for Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series.

 

In addition to editing Brandon served as Director on two episodes of ALIAS, (“The Road Home” &“AfterSix”), and served as the Producer for the fourth season. Her previous feature credits include, JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB, A THOUSAND ACRES, GRUMPIER OLD MEN, BORN TO BE WILD, and BINGO."

    

Brandon will share hosting duties tonight with Illeana to introduce:

 

Madame Satan (1930)

Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

Mutiny On The Bounty (1935)

What's Up Doc? (1972)

 

In more TCM related news:

TCM Essentials Host (and Donald Trump impressionist on Saturday Night Live) Alec Baldwin is scheduled to play Colonel Jessup in a live production of  A Few Good Men on NBC sometime in 2018....

 

No updates on the #TCMFF2018 website yet, but interested future pass holders know that traditionally pass sales begin in early November. BTW, they don't take any wooden nickels, so save some real ones. ;) 

 

More about Hedwig...

 

If that fabulous documentary, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, screens near your neighborhood, go see it! It's fabulous. Hedy is another Trailblazing Woman.

Tonight and tomorrow night....George Pal!

Director Arnold Leibovit joins Ben to discuss Puppetoons and the wonderful world of George Pal.

Tonight's screening of "The Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal" was amazing! My favorite segments included comments from George Pal himself and Rod Taylor and Alan Young discussing "The Time Machine." Tony Randall also discusses his work in "7 Faces of Dr. Lao."

Here's more "Pal" fun:

Arnold Leibovit and Ben share about the amazing work of .... GEORGE PAL - 10/11 & 10/12

Animator/writer/producer/director George Pal (1908-1980) was one of the most highly regarded, and honored, filmmakers working in the field of science fiction. He was nominated for Academy Awards® for seven consecutive years (1942-1948) in the category of Best Short Subject, Cartoon; and won an honorary Oscar® in 1944. Born György Pál Marczincsak in Hungary, he emigrated to the U.S. in 1939.

Pal's famous "Puppetoons" were puppet films using his own expressive form of stop-motion animation. TCM's commemoration of this influential artist includes the TCM premieres of two movies by Arnold Leibovit: the documentary The Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal (1985); and The Puppetoon Movie (1987), an animated film based on Pal's characters.

Focusing on Pal's influence as a producer and/or director of feature films, we are also screening several movies on which he worked in these capacities. The first night of our tribute includes Destination Moon (1950, producer); The Time Machine (1960, producer/director); Atlantis: The Lost Continent (1961, producer/director); and The Power (1968, producer), while the second night includes Tom Thumb (1958, producer/director); The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962, producer/co-director); 7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1964, producer/director); and the TCM premiere of Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze (1975, producer).

TOMORROW NIGHT IS THE LAST NIGHT!

TONIGHT ON TRAILBLAZING WOMEN, hosted by Illeana Douglas...

Calli Khouri shares her insights on The Big Sleep and Adam's Rib, Singin' In The Rain, and Cabaret....

 

Callie Khouri is the creator and executive producer of the critically acclaimed drama, Nashville, and the Oscar Award-winning screenwriter of Thelma and Louise.

QbN0MLL.jpg

 

Crowned “the best new drama of 2012” by outlets including USA Today, TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, TIME Magazine, The New York Post and The Daily Beast, Nashville earned Golden Globe nominations for its lead actresses and a Writers Guild of America nomination. Khouri led the show as its creator and executive producer for four seasons from 2012 to 2017.

 

Khouri may be best known for galvanizing women and sparking nationwide debate in 1991 with her screenwriting debut, Thelma and Louise, which was nominated for six Academy Awards. She won the Oscar, the Golden Globe, the Writers Guild of America Award and a PEN Literary Award for Best Original Screenplay. Thelma and Louise took home the London Film Critics Circle Award for Film of the Year, and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

 

Khouri followed Thelma and Louise with 1995’s Something to Talk About, starring Julia Roberts, Dennis Quaid and Robert Duvall. She then made her directorial debut with Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, starring Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd, which she also adapted for the screen. In 2006, Khouri collaborated with legendary television producer Steven Bochco and wrote and directed the television drama, Hollis and Rae.

 

Khouri has continues to be honored for her writing in film and television as well as her commitment to the honest portrayal of women on screen. Her accolades include Nashville Women in Film’s 2016 Woman of the Year; induction into the 2016 SOURCE Awards Hall of Fame; the 2016 Patsy Montana Award from the National Cowgirl Museum, which recognizes work in entertainment that continues and advances the tradition of the cowgirl in the areas of film, television, music, writing and theatre; the National Women’s History Museum’s 2015 Women Making History Award; and the Austin Film Festival’s 2013 Austin Distinguished Screenwriter Award.

 

ANOTHER TRAILBLAZING WOMAN WAS HEDY LAMARR...

I was lucky enough to see Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story at the Dallas DocFest last Friday evening and spend time with director Alexandra Dean, whose uncompromising vision of Lamarr helped her uncover the true story of the actress who was also touched by genius....

 

Read my interview with director Alexandra Dean:

Shortly after Alexandra Dean and husband Chris arrived, they were treated to Pappas Barbecue by PR gal Kelly Kitchens Wickersham and husband Mark....

Writing focuses visions, reflects our feelings and inspires great performances on both sides of the camera.

OCTOBER SCHEDULING UPDATE FROM THE HOME OFFICE IN ATLANTA: TCM "Launches Final Year of Trailblazing Women

TCM Launches Final Year of Trailblazing Women Initiative Celebrating Women’s Contribution To The Film Industry

 

Month-Long Programming Event Begins Oct. 2 Hosted by Illeana Douglas

Initiative Marks Continued Partnership with Women In Film, Los Angeles

 

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) today announced the final year of Trailblazing Women, a three-year initiative in partnership with Women In Film Los Angeles (WIF) to raise awareness about the historical contributions of women in the film industry. This year’s programming event will examine the substantial impact that female writers, editors and producers have held within the film industry. Hosted by actress, producer and director Illeana Douglas, Trailblazing Women premieres Oct. 2 and airs every Monday throughout October.

 

The theme of the 2017 programming slate - Trailblazing Women: Creators That Made a Difference

- highlights female creative influences during the early days of cinema through modern times with more than 20 films being shown. Joining Douglas as co-hosts will be:

 

445tVCQ.jpg

 

• Writer and producer Leslie Dixon (Limitless, 2011), will discuss the careers of 1920s and 1930s writers Bess Meredyth (Ben Hur, 1925) and Dorothy Parker (A Star is Born, 1937), as well as Hollywood legends Frances Marion (Camille, 1937) and Anita Loos (The Women, 1939)

QbN0MLL.jpg

• Screenwriter Callie Khouri (Thelma and Louise, 1991), will examine the influence of female writers during the Classic Hollywood period and beyond including the work of Leigh Brackett (The Big Sleep, 1946), Ruth Gordon (Adam’s Rib, 1949) and Betty Comden (Singin’ in the Rain, 1952)

LVHupEg.jpg

• Oscar-nominated editor Maryann Brandon (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 2015) will discuss early editors who opened the door for women in editing positions and will showcase works from Anne Bauchens (Madame Satan, 1930) and three-time Oscar nominated editor Dede Allen (Bonnie and Clyde, 1967)

d0VKAZW.jpg

• Oscar-nominated editor Lynzee Klingman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, 1975) will highlight the works of contemporary editors Anne V. Coates (The Elephant Man, 1980), Susan Morse (Hannah and Her Sisters, 1986), Thelma Schoonmaker (Casino, 1995) and Carol Littleton (Places in the Heart, 1984)

UO1LE2v.jpg

• Producer Stephanie Allain (Hustle & Flow, 2005) will discuss female producers who handled the writing, casting and styling on their own accord including June Mathis (The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, 1921), Kathleen Kennedy (Back to the Future, 1985) and Julia Philips (Taxi Driver, 1976).

 

“This years Trailblazing Women initiative allows us to feature a variety of writers, producers and editors who challenged gender stereotypes while carving out successful careers,” said Charles Tabesh, senior vice president of programming for TCM. “We are excited to showcase their work, their impact throughout history and how these women paved the way for the future of our industry and culture.” 

 

"We are truly honored to present the third year of Trailblazing Women with TCM,” said Kirsten Schaffer, Executive Director of Women In Film. "By shining a light on the historic accomplishments of these extraordinary women behind the camera, we hope to catalyze greater momentum toward achieving gender parity in the entertainment industry.” 

 

For a complete a programming schedule and talent bios please visit: tcm.com/trailblazingwomen

 

In reference to several questions posed to me on social media: Author, historian, and popular TCMFF guest speaker Cari Beauchamp will not be featured this season, but her stellar research for books on Anita Loos and Frances Marion will no doubt be  some part of the focus for the third year presentations.

 

 

About Women in Film (WIF)
Women In Film (WIF) advocates for, and advances the careers of, women working in the screen industries – to achieve parity and transform culture. Founded in 1973, WIF focuses on advocacy and education, provides scholarships, grants and film finishing funds and works to preserve the legacies of all women working in the entertainment community.

This Wednesday, September 27, is the last installment of Ben Mankiewicz's historic visit to residents of the Motion Picture and Television Fund home.

From the TCM website spotlight:

"Since its dedication in 1942, the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital has been home to hundreds of residents who once worked in the movie and TV industry. Scores of movie notables, along with extras, backlot workers, security guards, secretaries, and others, have live in comfortable retirement at the facility on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles. TCM celebrates the legacy of the Motion Picture & Television Fund with a series of films co-hosted by residents of the retirement home.

Film extra Judy Woodbury co-presents My Fair Lady (1964), one of countless films in which she appeared. Character actress Connie Sawyer, who claims to be the oldest living member of the Screen Actors Guild as she approaches 105, helps introduce A Hole in the Head (1959), starring Frank Sinatra. Sawyer has a small but scene-stealing part in that film as an intoxicated hotel guest. ""On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" (1970), starring Barbra Streisand, Yves Montand, and Jack Nickolson, is co-hosted by Burt Bluestein, who served as the movie's second assistant director.

Film researcher Lillian Michelson co-presents Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story (2015), Daniel Raim's documentary about the life and work of Lillian and her late production-designer husband, Harold. The couple left their mark on classics by Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick and many others. Celebrated director Mark Rydell speaks about his film Cinderella Liberty (1973), starring James Caan. Rydell's other credits include 1979's The Rose and 1981's On Golden Pond.

Other films in the tribute include Little Annie Rooney (1925), Heidi (1937), Sealed Cargo (1951), McQ (1974), Doctor Zhivago (1965), and Showfolk (TCM Premiere, 2014)."

Don't miss this last installment!

Coming up in October: Illeana Douglas hosts Trailblazing Women, the third year of programming on TCM highlighting women filmmakers.

Happy Birthday to actress Anna Karina!

Today is the birthday of Danish/French actress Anna Karina. I was so inspired by Anna Karina at the #TCMFF 2016. I had a few minutes to visit with her before a limo whisked her across the street to the Chinese Multiplex on Saturday night where she introduced “Band of Outsiders” (1964’s “Band a’ Part”). She has such peaceful but exotic eyes which revealed such compassion. (This was a popular photo I Tweeted and posted as Credentialed Media.) We were so lucky to have her as a special guest in 2016.

Karina was director Jean-Luc Godard’s muse during the New Wave movement, and appeared in several of his films.

If you would enjoy seeing esteemed entertainment professionals like the wonderful Anna Karina, you might want to reserve a pass for the TCM Film Festival 2018 in November! :-)

It won't be long until we will be purchasing our passes for the TCM Film Festival 2018. This is Aileen, a TCM fan from Tampa, Florida, whom I'd met on the Wednesday afternoon get together before last year's festival. She says she ALWAYS reads Sue Sue's columns! We're hanging out at the Hollywood Roosevelt Pool Bar, and as Jane Austen would write, "There are lots of friends to be met!"
1v1QSkc.jpg
Backdrop for the excitement in Club TCM featuring highlighted character from films screened in 2018....


This year's theme is Powerful Words: The Page Onscreen- Writing focuses visions, reflects our feelings and inspires great performances on both sides of the camera. Join us for the 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival, celebrating the representation of the written word on the silver screen. From original screenplays to unique adaptations to portrayals of writers real and imagined, we will celebrate the foundation of great film: the written word.
I don't know if we'd see any adaptations of Jane Austen's works, but we definitely will see powerful screenplays. And maybe some screenwriters, too! :-)


Thousands of films have been adapted from popular books. Have a favorite film from an author you enjoy? Some items on my bucket list for 2018:

Night of the Iguana, Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson and Kate WInslet, Othello with Lawrence Fishburne and Kenneth Branagh, Young Bess, Julia with Jane Fonda, Tennessee Williams, at least one Biblical epic, Blade Runner, Private Benjamin with Goldie Hawn, All About Eve (again), A Letter To Three Wives (well, powerful words as a theme is no good without at least one Joseph Mankiewicz script!) Fahrenheit 451 (Julie Christie), HEAVEN KNOWS, MR. ALLISON!

Some friends from previous festivals:

Just want to let everyone know that I am ok. I appreciate all the texts, calls and emails. (I am about a 25-minute drive from downtown Houston.)

I deeply appreciate all the concern. Please pray for all the folks who have lost their homes, and have had their lives devastated by this storm.

Sincerely,
Christy
"Sue Sue"

RICARDO CORTEZ BIOGRAPHER DAN VAN NESTE TO VISIT THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS THIS WEEKEND...

AUTHOR DAN VAN NESTE TO VISIT THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS FOR Q & A ON RICARDO CORTEZ
The Silver Screen Oasis is pleased to announce an online visit by Dan Van Neste on August 26th & 27th to discuss his latest book, THE MAGNIFICENT HEEL: THE LIFE & FILMS OF RICARDO CORTEZ.
9enCLiM.jpg
Well-researched and revelatory, that author has brought a very private individual and versatile actor out of the shadows. Van Neste's portrait of Ricardo Cortez has been greeted with appreciative reviews such as one noting that this "is a book based on many years of dedicated research in which Van Neste contacted not only the last surviving relative of the actor but also diligently explored newspaper and entertainment archives to provide as comprehensive a picture of this neglected actor."

"His Face Is His Misfortune" wailed a headline in a 1929 copy of Picture-Play magazine about the darkly handsome Ricardo Cortez. "A second-rate Valentino" was one of the labels pasted on the actor and "a magnificent heel" was the take of one perceptive reviewer in 1934, when Cortez began the phase of his career as an elegant heavy. Washed up, limited, and stereotyped as he was so often told during his bits, supporting roles and leading man periods of his career from Silents to the Sixties, Jacob Krantz aka Ricardo Cortez proved himself repeatedly to be more versatile and highly capable of negotiating the changing demands of a career in Hollywood. First chosen as one of a squad of actors with Mediterranean names in competition with Valentino, (his screen name was chosen by Jesse Lasky & his secretary), and blooming into a dangerous character in the Pre-Code era, Cortez's career was remarkable for its longevity and for his relative obscurity today...

rMiI3C6.jpg

In his new book, "The Magnificent Heel: The Life and Films of Ricardo Cortez" (BearManor Media), author Dan Van Neste weaves the story of this individual into a highly enjoyable read that limns a life and a period we may never see again. Remarkably, the author does this at a time when almost all who knew Cortez are gone, but his impeccable research and keen eye for a telling anecdote brings the life and times of a relatively forgotten professional actor into high relief.

The rich tale of Cortez harks back to a time when he co-starred with Garbo, Stanwyck, Mary Astor, Kay Francis, and Irene Dunne, among many others. His directors included such masters as D.W. Griffith, Frank Capra, Gregory La Cava, and John Ford, all of whom were generally acknowledged as astute individuals when casting their films. Dan's latest book has been described by Film International as "a significant achievement. . . " and a book that fills "a void in film history" by Silents Are Golden.

Dan Van Neste, the author of over 50 articles related to film history featuring figures from Aline MacMahon to Zachary Scott, published in the pages of Classic Images and Films of the Golden Age. He is also the author of The Whistler: Stepping Into the Shadows, a comprehensive account of the noir series, that features Dan's extensive accounts of each film in the series as well as biographies of the filmmakers.

Please accept this as your invitation to join us in this online event on August 26th & 27th at The Silver Screen Oasis where you can ask the author questions directly (simple registration is all that is required to post a query or comment).

William Friedkin's appearance on last weeks' The Essentials reveals how he admires many classic films. I enjoy hearing about his interpretations of the importance of "The Quiet Man," and Alec Baldwin's reverence and deference to Friedkin's opinions gave the director the opportunity to share his emotional connections to John Ford's "greatest film."
mn5BR1G.jpg

Friedkin returns to The Essentials again this Saturday with his comments to Alec for "The Manchurian Candidate." Enjoy Angela Lansbury's Word of Mouth segment about working with Laurence Harvey if you can catch it. These wonderful comments from the actors, directors, and entertainment industry professionals on the TCM Word of Mouth segments enhances viewer enjoyment of upcoming film screenings, and I enjoy when they are added to the schedule before a relevant movie showing.

Be on alert, potential TCMFF 2018 pass holders! It won't be long before an announcement about the fest dates! Last year, we were informed on August 25. See you soon!

It's about that time of year to begin commiserating over the dates of the Turner Classic Film Festival for 2018. When will it happen ? In April? In March? In May?

F2DsNcd.jpg?1

 

 

When will the announcement about the exact dates be made?

 

Right now the odds seem to be on April 26-29 because those are dates "unavailable" for reservations on the HRH website, but we can't make reservations yet because no official announcement has been made.

 

Remember that last year, if pass holders were making a reservation at the Hollywood Roosevelt, they had to pay for at least one night of their stay the moment their reservation was made. (Some pass holders were required to pay for the first and last night of their stay.)

Stay tuned and be vigilant!  :-)

Also, its National Book Lovers' Day. Check out these new titles if you haven't already: http://www.tcm.com/t...-new-books.html
