    TCM Backlot Hollywood

    Since the Backlot is looking to set up local chapters, I thought I would start one up in Hollywood. Anyone who's interested, please respond here.
  3. Hello fellow film noir fans, Like all of you I love film noir - grew up watching it and even wrote several plays inspired by it (all published and widely produced). I also taught a college course in it. So, I’m the author of a new book with a totally different look at film noir, “Film Noir production: the Whodunit of the Classic American Mystery Film” from Routledge. Focal Press. I know – another book on Film Noir, really? Well, yes. Because as a member of the Mystery Writer’s of America, an award winning screenwriter/playwright and a working professional in the film/TV industry in lighting and cinematography, I felt I needed to write a book enlightening readers about all the wonderful and interesting people who worked in the shadows behind creating what would become known as “film noir”, who are so often glanced by other books. I talk about the Hollywood studio chiefs and the original mystery novels the films were based on, the staff screenwriters and the film factory producers, the contract actors and studio cinematographers, the art directors, costume designers and music composers – what they all did and how they all together with the directors created one of the most popular forms of mystery films . So I wrote about the noir themes, character types, dialog style, imagery, cast and public reception of these classic films and how the films were made from the perspective of someone who works in the film industry and is a published mystery writer. It’s a fun, conversational read rather than an academic thesis. I’m trying to get the word out about it. I wish they had allowed me to put in more pictures, but - oh well. I did lots of research including at the Academy of Motion picture Arts & Sciences document room and on this wonderful TCM website. Its available on Amazon and on the publisher's page. So here’s a link to my book https://www.routledge.com/Film-Noir-Production-The-Whodunit-of-the-Classic-American-Mystery-Film/Landau/p/book/9781138201484 and on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Film-Noir-Production-Whodunit-American/dp/1138201480/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484514436&sr=8-1&keywords=film+noir+production Hope you give it a look and hopefully enjoy it. Happy new year all. David Landau

    HOLLYWOOD GOTHIC

    "...Cast Out This Wicked Dream Which Has Seized My Heart..." https://vimeo.com/167618734 Here is a video tribute to a few of our favorite movies that depict the seedy, spooky side of Hollywood. These are some of the films that served as inspiration for our new film Golden Vanity -goldenvanitymovie.com - a one-woman feature about our very own over-the-hill, acid-tongued starlet Mabel Montgomery-Mayflower. Can you spot all the movies in the video? What are your favorites? What other movies would you consider part of the 'Hollywood Gothic' tradition?

  6. More sad news to report everyone; Lauren Bacall passed away today at the age of 89. Another classic star and timeless beauty has left our midst. No one combined that sense of earthiness and cool, controlled emotion like Bacall, and she will be terribly missed. She had such class, and her warmheartedness and sense of humor were well-known to all who worked with her. I'm so heartbroken over the great ones that are leaving us.

    Sex In Monochrome

    Just to let you know, Episode 11 of 'Attaboy Clarence' is a full-length documentary podcast running to almost three hours, about sex in cinema before 1934 when The Code began to be rigidly enforced: Episode 11: SPECIAL - Sex In Monochrome The Hollywood of the 30’s and 40’s is commonly known as The Golden Age of Hollywood, a time when foundations were built, techniques refined, and legends were born, but The Golden Age was built upon the bones of another generation; a liberal, free-spirited time when Hollywood creatively defied the censors, and let its imagination run free. Sex was an integral part of film-making from the very beginning, appearing on film just a year after its inception, and remaining one of the most popular, and controversial subjects during the birth of cinema. In this special episode, we’ll take a look at some of the keystones of sex in cinema, the men and women who were the first sex symbols, and the tragic figures who were its first casualties. The sex. The lies. The films. The scandals. And the force that finally brought Hollywood to heel in the mid-thirties. http://www.attaboyclarence.com/podcast/29/4/2014/episode-11-special-sex-in-monochrome
