Rip Taylor Dies, Crying Comedian & King of Confetti Was 84
The world is now a lot less funny, as legendary entertainer Rip Taylor has passed away. Boasting such nicknames as the "King of Confetti" and "The Crying Comedian," Taylor was widely known for his unique appearance and comedic delivery, making him a popular name in the nightclub scene. Taylor had also made a wide variety of television appearances across many decades as well. His over-the-top personality, trademark mustache, and habit of dousing others with confetti made him instantly memorable for anyone who's ever seen him. Sadly, Taylor died after suffering from a seizure last week which landed him in the ICU. He was 84 years old.

After a particularly rough childhood, Taylor worked as a congressional page before enlisting in the United States Army and serving in the Korean War. This led to the start of his career in comedy, as Taylor began performing stand-up in restaurants and clubs while stationed abroad.

The Wizard of Oz's Ruby Slippers Became Iconic 80 Years Ago — And for Years, One Pair Was Lost
Dorothy’s ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz are among the most recognizable pieces of movie memorabilia — but for years, they had vanished. With the classic family film turning 80 on Sunday, here’s a look back at the footwear’s journey from lost to found.

In 2005, the Judy Garland Museum in the actress’ birthplace of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, displayed the “traveling pair” of ruby slippers — one of the few pairs once worn by Garland — at its annual Wizard of Oz festival. The museum borrowed the costume pieces from Michael Shaw, a movie memorabilia collector in California.

Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds Are Singin’ In The Rain at The Tivoli Today at 4pm and 7pm

She can’t act, she can’t sing, she can’t dance. A triple threat!”

Singin’ In The Rain screens today at The Tivoli Theater in St. Louis (6350 Delmar) as the kick-off to their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. Showtimes are 4pm and 7pm. Admission is $7.

Singin’ In The Rain is part musical, part comedy, and part romance, but it is always all of these things at the same time. The story follows Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), a famous silent movie star, and his friend Cosmo (Donald O’Connor) as they brace for Hollywood’s transition into the Age of Sound. This period in film history serves only as a backdrop for one of the most lavish films ever made. In addition to the comedy, what makes Singin’ In The Rain so memorable is the dance numbers. Watching O’Connor flail around during “Make ‘Em Laugh” is hilarious

Carrie Fisher Can't Get Her Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Until 2021

Carrie Fisher Can't Get Her Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Until 2021
Last week, we passed along the story that Mark Hamill wants fellow Star Wars actor and Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher to get a much-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. More specifically, Hamill wants Fischer's star to replace the recently defaced one that belongs to Donald Trump. But today we're hearing that while the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce welcomes a petition for the actress, a few issues are holding the ceremony back. Mainly that Fisher can't earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame until the fifth anniversary of her death.

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce spokeswoman, Ana Martinez says this:

"We want [fans] to express themselves. We would love for Carrie Fisher to have a star, but the application has to be submitted on the fifth anniversary of her death. It wouldn't be fair for the committee to be pressured into bending the rules for the actress, nor

Emmy spotlight: Debra Messing’s quietly powerful performance in ‘Will & Grace’s’ #MeToo episode cannot be forgotten

Emmy spotlight: Debra Messing’s quietly powerful performance in ‘Will & Grace’s’ #MeToo episode cannot be forgotten
In December, Debra Messing earned a Golden Globe nomination for “Will & Grace,” which came as a minor surprise since she was only in ninth place in our predictions. But anyone who saw last season — and one episode in particular — knows she deserved that nomination and would be incredibly worthy of an Emmy bid as well. That episode in question is “Grace’s Secret,” which aired in November and was written by Suzanne Martin. You may have heard by now that it was Grace’s #MeToo episode, but what makes it extraordinary is how ordinary everything is about it, anchored by Messing’s subtle, powerful performance.

It even starts off innocuously with Grace (Messing) dreading the hours-long car ride with her father Martin (Robert Klein) to Schenectady to visit her mother’s grave, while Will (Eric McCormack) and Karen (Megan Mullally) compete in a “Jack-off” to become Jack’s (Sean Hayes
