Five Reasons to Sail Into <i>By The Sea</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Oh, to be back in the 1970s when opportunities to experience real cinema were more frequent and the likes of Paramount Pictures studio chief Robert Evans brought a kind of elan to the screen--something that feels absent in much of today's modern cinematic servings. But, what's this? In the much talked-about By The Sea, filmmaker Angelina Jolie Pitt delivers a daring spectacle indeed. The film hearkens back to the 1970s and to those dramas that took their time to unwind. The outing also smacks of a luscious European production with its simple yet remarkable cinematography and sparse dialogue. Will it be a box office hit? Probably not. But it is a kind of arty gem that's worthy of consideration. By The Sea takes place in the early 1970s, in and around a remote village on the French Mediterranean coastline. It revolves around the emotional undoing of a stylish couple, Roland and Vanessa Bertrand (Brad Pitt and Jolie Pitt--married in real life as we all know). Pitt morp ...

Making News and Getting Views: HuffPost Live Hits a Billion
Huffington Post - about 3 years
In The Social Network, Justin Timberlake's Sean Parker dazzles Mark Zuckerberg by saying, "A million dollars isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion dollars." Well, you know what else is cool? A billion video views. That's the milestone that HuffPost Live hit today, just 18 months after it launched. Cool.... Those billion views have been generated by a very broad range of programming, covering everything from the sublime (like this powerful look at the victims of gun violence, or this segment on a dad sent to jail because of a clerical error) to the silly (check out this interview with people who haven't shampooed their hair in years) -- and everything in between. Among the most widely viewed of the nearly 12,000 segments HuffPost Live has produced are this breaking report on the passing of Nelson Mandela (1,025,630 views), this look at how to not overstep parental boundaries (2,536,932 views), this off-the-wall interview with Sarah Silverman and her very funny dad (1,332,143 ...

Relaxing together in a hot tub, taking a midnight dip in the pool, drawing a cozy bubble bath for two. [...] double bubble baths are rare. Roger Moore shared one with a KGB enchantress in the 1985 James Bond film "A View to a Kill," and I think I recall George Segal and Jacqueline Bisset sudsing up together in 1978's "Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?" (the telephone interrupts them and Segal laments, "It always rings when you're in the bath.") To sync the information from your Google account to your new Android phone, simply sign on to the account during the setup process. Companies including VTech and LeapFrog market tablets for children as young as yours, reassuring parents that the things are learning tools.

Liz Smith: Frank Sinatra -- He Did it... Ava's Way! Also -- Awarding Jackie Bisset -- Celebrating Arlene Dahl -- A Thank You From Jane Fonda
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"I don't make people comfortable. But that's what couches are for!" said writer Donna Lynn Hope. Here is one extra tidbit gleaned from the brand new book about the late MGM star Ava Gardner. Writer Peter Evans talked, in London, with the movie star who has been named "the most beautiful woman ever." These talks and Evans' ideas have now come out in "Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations." Toward the end of this book, Ava became quite exercised over the easily believed idea that "The Mob" ever gave her beloved Frank Sinatra anything, especially during the singer-actor's fallow period in the early Fifties. This was a time when Ava's own career was booming but Sinatra couldn't get himself arrested. The Ava-Frank romance was anything but calm. They loved one another but could not get along. Ava was adamant and furious in defending Frank, during the period that his career was in ruins. She insisted no criminal elements ever helped him back to success. "I did!" ...
