Tom Teodorczuk: Mirren and Morgan Create a Captive Audience
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It's not often the queen travels the short distance from Buckingham Palace to London's West End to go to the theatre. One show she did see was Stephen Daldry's musical Billy Elliot in 2006. Appropriately, Daldry is directing The Audience, the new play by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon), at the Gielgud Theatre in which Helen Mirren portrays Queen Elizabeth II over a 60-year period. Mirren played the same regal role half a decade ago in The Queen (also scripted by Morgan), which depicted the tense relationship between the monarchy and Tony Blair following Princess Diana's death. She wound up winning an Oscar for Best Actress. But second time around as the U.K. sovereign, Mirren is even better on stage in The Audience than she was in The Queen.

Published 5:12 p.m., Tuesday, September 18, 2012 Fretting that an upcoming presidential election, rising energy and food costs as well as ongoing job fears could cause skittish consumers to tighten their purse strings, retailers are drumming up ways to persuade them to shop early and often. If consumers start spending earlier, they're more likely to spend more and buy more if they aren't rushed by a holiday deadline, added Edward Fox, associate professor of marketing at Southern Methodist University's Cox School of Business in Dallas. Robust back-to-school sales, however, gave a number of retailers a boost, with a nearly 6 percent gain in August, according to research firm Retail Metrics. Analysts also are betting on an uptick in online shoppi ...

    More Details Hide Details He also had a non-speaking part as a waiter in This Sporting Life (1963). Throughout the 1960s he worked mostly on stage, including a turn as Hamlet. In the late 1960s and early 1970s he established himself with roles in major British films including Oh! What a Lovely War (1969), Battle of Britain (1969) and The Go-Between (1971). In The Go-Between, he played the part of Lord Hugh Trimingham, for which he won a BAFTA award for Best Supporting Actor. His acting ability also brought him to the attention of director Fred Zinnemann, who was looking for an actor who wasn't well-known and could be believable as the assassin in the film The Day of the Jackal (1973). Fox won the role, beating out other contenders such as Roger Moore and Michael Caine. From then onwards, he was much sought after, appearing in such films as A Bridge Too Far (1977) as Lieutenant General Horrocks — a role he has cited as a personal favourite — and for which he won yet another Best Supporting Actor award at the British Academy Film Awards. He also starred in Force 10 from Navarone (1978), with Robert Shaw and Harrison Ford.
