Stephen Kessler: For Karen Black, With Love
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
In the film business, you have great days and terrible days and mostly days when you wait around to start working again. Once in awhile, something extraordinary happens that makes all the waiting and all the crappy times worthwhile. For me, that extraordinary thing was the day I worked with the actor Karen Black. I say "the actor Karen Black," because time flies, and already, so many people don't know who she is. If she was Jack Nicholson or Warren Beatty or Dennis Hopper, she would have been one of the biggest stars of our time, they would have put her face on the front pages of newspapers today to let people know that she has died. She would have been awarded one of those great Presidential Medals of Freedom or Kennedy Center Honors that they give to Bob Dylan and Oprah. But Karen Black was born to a generation where you needed to have a penis to be one of the biggest stars, and so she had to settle for this: she was one of the best actors of her generation. ...

Orson Welles-Henry Jaglom chats become book
LATimes - over 3 years
The Sunday Conversation: Director Henry Jaglom's lunch discussions with Orson Welles were taped in the 1980s, and they are the basis of the book 'My Lunches With Orson.' Toward the end of his life, Orson Welles and director Henry Jaglom became close in friendship and business. They lunched regularly together at Ma Maison, where the film legend asked Jaglom to tape their unfettered conversations. Thirty years later, film historian Peter Biskind has edited their talks and penned the introduction for "My Lunches With Orson: Conversations Between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles."

Orson Welles On Dating Marilyn Monroe (NEW BOOK)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
My Lunches With Orson, edited by Peter Biskind ($28, Metropolitan) is a book containing transcripts of a series of lunchtime conversations between Orson Welles and his friend, director Henry Jaglom, in the early 1980s, when the director was in his late 60s. The book is described by literary website The Millions as "entertaining, salacious reading for those of us who enjoy old Hollywood gossip delivered with exquisite nastiness." He calls Humphrey Bogart "both a coward and a very bad fighter,” and says that Katherine Hepburn “laid around the town like nobody’s business.” And he also describes dating a young Marilyn Monroe. The Guardian says that this occurred in 1947, the year she turned 21, writing that "a brief fling with unknown starlet Marilyn Monroe ended with an angry husband (not hers), wrongly convinced that Welles was with his wife, bursting in on Welles and Monroe and thumping the filmmaker in the jaw." Here's how Welles describes dating Monroe in My Lunc ...

Mary Novaria: When It Comes to Redheads, Color Me Smitten
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I've been a bit mesmerized by redheads ever since giving birth to one 20 years ago. We knew we were having a girl, so no surprises there. We wondered if she'd be blond and blue-eyed like her older brother, who favors me, or a hazel-eyed brunette like her dad. We had quite the shock — a very pleasant one, at that — when out popped sweet, little, ginger-haired baby Hannah. It crept up on me, but eventually I realized I was drawn to all things redhead. I probably forced Ludwig Bemelmans' fictional Madeline on Hannah, but I think she adored her as much as I did. I already loved Molly Ringwald and Ron Howard (who doesn't?) and immediately took notice in more recent years when the likes of Kate Walsh and Christina Hendricks turned up on TV. Tanna Frederick and Henry Jaglom photo by Linda Abse/Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write. I've got paintings of redheads on my walls and seek out gifts and cards with photos and drawings of those luscious locks. So naturally, I took noti ...

Irene Rubaum-Keller: The Rainmaker Theatrical Review
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Set in the Dust Bowl during the depression, The Rainmaker tackles timeless themes of love, passion, faith and magic. The play premiered on Broadway in 1954 and was then made into a feature film in 1956 starring Katharine Hepburn, as Lizzie, and Burt Lancaster, as Starbuck. Henry Jaglom and the Rainbow Theater Company, in association with Edgemar Center for the Arts bring us this stellar version of the timeless play. The story revolves around Lizzie. She is an unmarried woman, with no prospects. In the 1930s to be in your 30s and an unmarried woman was a crime against society. Lizzie is constantly told by her brother Noah, that she is "plain" and that no one will ever want her. Meanwhile, her father, brother Jimmy and even Noah make many laughable attempts to marry her off. They do this all the while worrying about the fact that the horrendous drought is killing their cattle and destroying what little they have left financially.

Now Playing
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
Now Playing Anna Karenina Joe Wright's misguided and miscast version of the Tolstoy classic uses a host of distancing devices - namely doing the movie as though it took place on a stage - but the effect is to render something cold that should have been warm. Argo That Ben Affleck can direct a film this smart, this gripping, is no surprise any longer, but still - his account of a rescue effort during the Iran hostage crisis is as precise as it is suspenseful. Affleck plays the CIA operative who aims to fly out six Americans posing as a film crew for a fake movie. The Big Picture Based on Douglas Kennedy's 1997 novel, this ambitious French thriller focuses on a Parisian lawyer (Romain Duris) who kills his wife's lover, a photographer, then assumes his identity and goes on the lam. Chasing Ice This documentary presents striking visual evidence of global warming in the form of time-lapse photo sequences of glaciers melting and breaking up. The film shows us too m ...

Irene Rubaum-Keller: Just 45 Minutes From Broadway: Movie Review
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Henry Jaglom's new film Just 45 Minutes From Broadway is a quirky family dramedy with some great performances by its talented ensemble cast. Jaglom wrote it first as a play that ran for a full year at The Edgemar Center Theater in Santa Monica. I saw the play, twice, and loved it. I wasn't sure how it would translate to film, but it did beautifully. The Isaacs are an eccentric family of actors. George (Jack Heller), comes from a long line of actors that dates back to the Yiddish theater. He has been married to Vivian (Diane Salinger), also an actress, for a very long time. Their youngest daughter Pandora (Tanna Frederick) has come home to nurse her wounds after a long-term relationship ended. Pandora is an actress as well and struggling both personally and professionally. Betsy (Julie Davis) the older daughter has run from the acting business and become a "civilian" living a normal working life. She brings her fiancé Jimmy (Judd Nelson) home for the weekend to meet ...

Jack Nicholson Movies: Rating The Actor's Best And Worst Films
Deadline Hollywood - almost 5 years
What's Jack Nicholson's secret? Maybe it's the eyebrows, hovering like ironic quotation marks over every line reading. Maybe it's the hooded eyes, which hold the threat of danger or the promise of joviality -- you're never sure which. Same with that sharklike grin. Or maybe it's the voice, which has evolved over the years from a thin sneer to a deep rumble, but is always precisely calibrated to provoke a reaction. Put them all together, and they say: "I am a man to be reckoned with. Ignore me at your peril." Nicholson, who turns 75 on April 22, is often criticized for relying on his bag of tricks, for just showing up and doing Jack Nicholson (though indeed, he often seems to have been hired precisely for that purpose). But he's also capable of burrowing deep into a character, finding his wounded heart, and revealing the ugly truth without fear or vanity. Moviegoers don't always love the subtler Nicholson as much as the broader-played rabble rouser, but both have made him an instituti ...
