Movie Review: 3-D Auteurs
Huffington Post - 4 months
Ah, 3-D! It always seemed more like a gimmick than a true breakthrough in movie making technology. It was first introduced in the 1950s to beat back the threat of television; it was reintroduced in the new millennium to beat back the threat of the Internet. It didn't stop TV, and it won't stop Netflix, but a case can be made that it's more than just a toy. Film Forum makes that case with its 3-D Auteurs film festival, running November 11-29, and featuring 34 films by serious directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Wim Wenders, and George Miller. Note that Film Forum is the only repertory theater in New York City equipped to show 3-D films in the finicky 1950s dual projector format. Highlights include: It Came From Outerspace (1953). Cheesy alien invasion movie, the kind they don't make anymore. From a story by Ray Bradbury. You know you want to see it. Is it a metaphor for the Cold War? You decide. Directed by Jack Arnold. House of Wax (1953). Vincent Price as the ultimate tor ...

Showcasing the femmes fatales of film noir
LATimes - almost 5 years
The moody film noir thrillers that flourished after World War II gave actresses a chance to play complex femme fatales -- women who often wrapped the anti-hero protagonists around their fingers. The Turner Classic Movies Film Festival is saluting three of these icons -- Marsha Hunt from Anthony Mann’s 1948 classic “Raw Deal,” Rhonda Fleming from 1951’s “Cry Danger” and Peggy Cummins from the 1950 cult hit “Gun Crazy” -- Friday and Saturday. Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation will be chatting with the legendary actresses after their films are screened. “Raw Deal,” which screens Friday at 12:15 p.m. at the Chinese Multiplex 3, finds Hunt playing the “good girl”-- a legal aide who has been assigned to a prisoner (Dennis O’Keefe). When he escapes from prison in search of the man who framed him, Hunt discovers she actually loves O’Keefe, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend (Claire Trevor). Hunt, 94, said she still doesn’t really know why audiences have enjoyed “Raw Deal” al ...

    Fleming has worked for several charities, especially in the field of cancer care, and has served on the committees of many related organizations. In 1991, she and her fifth husband, Ted Mann, established the Rhonda Fleming Mann Clinic For Women's Comprehensive Care at the UCLA Medical Center.
    More Details Hide Details In 1964, Fleming spoke at the "Project Prayer" rally attended by 2,500 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. The gathering, which was hosted by Anthony Eisley, a star of ABC's Hawaiian Eye series, sought to flood the United States Congress with letters in support of school prayer, following two decisions in 1962 and 1963 of the United States Supreme Court which struck down the practice as in conflict with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Joining Fleming and Eisley at the rally were Walter Brennan, Lloyd Nolan, Dale Evans, Pat Boone, and Gloria Swanson. Fleming declared, "Project Prayer is hoping to clarify the First Amendment to the Constitution and reverse this present trend away from God." Eisley and Fleming added that John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Roy Rogers, Mary Pickford, Jane Russell, Ginger Rogers, and Pat Buttram would also have attended the rally had their schedules not been in conflict.

    Much of the outdoor location work for Fleming's appearance in the 1955 Western Tennessee's Partner, in which she played Duchess opposite John Payne as Tennessee and Ronald Reagan as Cowpoke, was filmed at the storied Iverson Movie Ranch in Chatsworth, California, known as the most heavily filmed outdoor location in the history of the movies and television.
