    Per: https://variety.com/2020/biz/news/carl-reiner-dead-died-dick-van-dyke-1234694208/?fbclid=IwAR2ICceK6rQa-Ddo5tjRLo7xh94wRpU081HWPZRid5C56KS_BI_ajSBE_kM Carl Reiner, the writer, producer, director and actor who was part of Sid Caesar’s legendary team and went on to create “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and direct several hit films, has died. He was 98. He died of natural causes on Monday night at his home in Beverly Hills, his assistant Judy Nagy confirmed to Variety. Reiner, the father of filmmaker and activist Rob Reiner, was the winner of nine Emmy awards, including five for “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” His most popular films as a director included “Oh God,” starring George Burns, in 1977; “The Jerk,” with Steve Martin, in 1979; and “All of Me,” with Martin and Lily Tomlin, in 1984. Reiner remained in the public eye well into his 80s and 90s with roles in the popular “Ocean’s Eleven” trio of films and on TV with recurring roles on sitcoms “Two and a Half Men” and “Hot in Cleveland.” He also did voice work for shows including “Family Guy,” “American Dad,” “King of the Hill,” and “Bob’s Burgers.” He first came to prominence as a regular cast member of Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows,” for which he won two Emmys in 1956 and 1957 in the supporting category. He met Mel Brooks during his time with Caesar. The two went on to have a long-running friendship and comedy partnership through the recurring “2000 Year Old Man” sketches.

    Yea, Carl was great! My wife and I have been watching the Dick Van Dyke show and I had pointed out to her that it was rather odd the two male actors were still alive, especially Carl who had to be the oldest cast member in the show. Funny man that left a legacy of fine work.

    I think that one of the funniest episodes on The Dick Van Dyke Show was "Coast to Coast Big Mouth" when Laura blurts out on television that Alan Brady is bald. Carl Reiner and Mary Tyler Moore are both hilarious in this sequence. The magic that special comedy talents could do when blessed with great writing like this.

    Reiner was one of the many stars of Stanley Kramer's 1963 madcap comedy "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." His death means that the actress Barrie Chase -- one of Fred Astaire's favorite dance partners -- is now the last surviving member of the primary cast. She is pictured below with Dick Shawn during a dance scene.

    Ghost Story (read the book and the ending wasn't like the movie). Any recent films with Marvel et alia super heroes (because they want to keep a franchise going) If you misinterpret it, GWTW Suspicion is anti-climatic because people didn't want to see Cary Grant as a murderer. I don't know if it is anti-climatic, but The Big Sleep (I think - with Bogie and Bacall) is too convoluted - can't keep players and murderers straight. Mildred Pierce is also rather anti-climatic

    Not Alan Brady! This is so sad. But at least there are plenty of Dick Van Dyke episodes to remember him by. And The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! is another great example. I could go on!

    Pulp Fiction (1994) Starz On Demand 8/10 Several criminals have intersecting stories. A rewatch for me, first in many years. I saw this on first release and was very impressed. I still think it's excellent, maybe not one of the greatest of all time though. Tarantino's pop culture references and dark humor still work very well. My favorite sequence has now become the Jack Rabbit Slim restaurant scene. Hitman John Travolta is told by his boss to look after his wife Uma Thurman. The set is fantastic in this scene where you get a bloody steak or burger with a $5 milk shake, wait staff that look like Buddy Holly and Marilyn Monroe, a maitre d that looks like Ed Sullivan and a twist contest. I also liked the dialogue where Travolta explains that one waitress is Marilyn Monroe and the other is Mamie Van Doren. The infamous sequence with bocer Bruce Willis and boss gangster Ving Rhames is still shocking and disturbing. The later scenes with Harvey Keitel were less interesting to me now but it is still a great film.

    Well, Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, sons of Martin Sheen, certainly are famous in their own right (although in Charlie's case it's probably for the wrong reasons because of his personal shenanigans in recent years). Whether they are actually good actors though is debatable (personally I always liked Emilio better than Charlie even though Charlie has had a bit more high-profile projects in his career).

    Yes, Sinatra did come to like George Harrison's "Something" quite a bit, recording it in the studio not once but twice. The 1970 version was arranged by Lennie Hayton, husband of Lena Horne, and the 1979 version was arranged by frequent Sinatra collaborator Nelson Riddle. And Frank performed "Something" frequently in concert, calling it "the greatest love song of the last 50 years." Harrison loved Frank's performances of the song. When George toured Japan in the early 90s, his last live performances, he adopted Frank's lyrical change, "You stick around, Jack...." (Harrison's modified version can be heard on his LIVE IN JAPAN album.) Here are Frank and George together in 1968, at a Sinatra recording session. (The picture also shows Patti Boyd Harrison and, to the right, Beatle friend and aide Mal Evans.)

    I've always found the term "pre-code" something of a misnomer. The Production Code was adopted in 1930, so "pre-code" would apply only to those films made before 1930, strictly speaking. A more accurate term might be "lax" or "loose" code, when the Hays Office took a less stringent stance toward enforcement, compared to films made during and after 1934, when Joe Breen took over the newly-formed Production Code Administration. Happily, we can now see the "pre-laundered" version of THE PUBLIC ENEMY (1931), with scenes and dialogue restored that had been edited out on re-release under the Code. And we can't forget BABY FACE (1933). I love the movies of the early 30s, and wish we could see many more of them on TCM.

    Robert De Niro in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000) playing "Fearless Leader." He's been in some other humdingers but this is pretty bad. He looks like he's doing Travis Bickle with a monocle in that second picture. The original cartoon was clever and funny. This is just a mess.

    Satire from The Borowitz Report Trump to Retaliate Against Russia by Sending Jared Kushner to Advise Kremlin on Coronavirus Response By Andy Borowitz June 29, 2020 Photograph by Win McNamee / Getty WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an act of retaliation against the Russians for sponsoring Taliban attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Donald J. Trump is sending Jared Kushner to the Kremlin to offer advice on its coronavirus response, the White House confirmed on Monday. “To all those who thought that this President was not taking the Russians’ actions seriously, this response should speak for itself,” the White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, said. “The President had an array of responses to choose from, and the one he selected is by far the most punishing.” According to White House insiders, Trump and his advisers debated the response to the Russians for hours before finally settling on the Kushner option late Sunday night. “Jared Kushner is the most brutal weapon in our arsenal, and deploying him is a decision that no one should ever take lightly,” one adviser said. McEnany indicated that Kushner will be dispatched to the Kremlin by Monday afternoon and will start advising the Kremlin on ventilators, personal protective equipment, and other coronavirus-related matters as early as Tuesday. “He will bring Russia to its knees,” she said. Many in Washington were surprised by the severity of Trump’s retaliation against the Russians, including the esteemed virologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. “I know that the Russians are our enemies, but I’m still not sure I would wish Jared Kushner on them,” he said.
