They Knew What They Wanted (1940)
Spoiler warning: For those who haven't finished season 4 of Oitnb, plot details will be revealed ahead.
Wiley is making headlines for her portrayal of Poussey Washington in the latest season of the hit Netflix show. The actress, who played a fan-favorite, opened up to People about her shocking exit in episode 12 and what it meant for the Black Lives Matter movement.
"I knew about it a long time before I got the script," Wiley tells People. "The
The great Charles Laughton may not have been the prettiest of movie stars, but he had a presence that many matinee idols would have killed for (as the current retrospective running at Film Forum will attest). In an era in which glamor was everything, studio marketers may have struggled with how to present Laughton’s unconventional looks and his larger-than-life portrayals of larger-than-life characters (so many monsters, murderers, tyrants, or simply overbearing fathers) to the public. In most of the posters for his most famous film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), he is all but a silhouette, a spoiler alert to his monstrous transformation as Quasimodo. And in some posters for The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933), the film for which he won his first Oscar, Henry is made to look more like the Hans Holbein
Photographs documenting the gritty beginnings of U2 in the smoky pubs and clubs of 1970s Dublin are being unveiled Thursday at an exhibition in the band's home city. Much of the exhibition by photographer Patrick Brocklebank has never been seen before.
Brocklebank's black-and-white images capture the teenage Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen in 1978 and 1979 gigs, their vibrant hairdos and fashion missteps, and their clowning around in impromptu shoots and scruffy nighttime hangouts.
At the time, fellow teenager Brocklebank recalls he thought U2 might just be the one local act to reach the big time – not because they sounded better than their rivals, but because they were harder-working.
"I actually preferred a few of the other Dublin bands at the time, the Virgin Prunes and the Blades," Brocklebank said. "But the U2 people really
Niles recently conducted a roundtable conference call in advance of Remains' December 16th premiere on Chiller TV, and the network was kind enough to share the transcript with us. Read on for a look inside the mind of this creative genius as he discusses his role in the production, what he looks for when someone approaches him about adapting his work, his preference between vampires and zombies, and lots more!

The season one finale of Treme, Episode 1.10: I'll Fly Away, is set to premiere on HBO this Sunday, June 20th. The series chronicles the fall season of 2005, three months after Hurricane Katrina and the massive engineering failure in which flood control failed throughout New Orleans, flooding 80 percent of the city and displacing hundreds of thousands of residents. As the first year comes to a close, we find that Toni's (Melissa Leo) concerns about Creighton (John Goodman) have turned to anger; Albert (Clarke Peters) and the Indians are suiting up for St. Joseph's night; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) has gambled away a big payday; Davis (Steve Zahn) is trying to convince Janette to stay put; all while Annie (Lucia Micarelli) weighs her future options. To end the season on a prolific note, A funeral procession offers its mourners a chance to
A very sad day as to me, Malden is a movie legend in his own right. I grew up watching him play Father Barry in On The Waterfront, holding his own next to Brando. He'll probably be best remembed as Detective Lt. Mike Stone in the awesome Tv series Streets of San Francisco. Having recently binged through the West Wing, it was great to recognize him as a guest star in one episode. A great actor who'll be sorely missed. Below is a brief biography courtesy of the IMDb if any of you would like to know more.
A former steelworker and teacher, Malden studied acting at the Goodman Theater Dramatic School in Chicago and chose to take his talents to New York, where he became involved with the fabled Group Theater.
He made his stage debut in 1937 and
The 97-year-old actor first appeared on the big screen in 1946's They Knew What They Wanted. Malden then went on to appear in dozens of movies, including critically acclaimed roles in On the Waterfront (1954) and Baby Doll (1956), as well as Streetcar. Malden is perhaps best-known for his five-year stint as Detective Lt. Mike Stone in the 1970's TV series The Streets of San Francisco and for his 21 years as the trench coat-wearing spokesperson who reminded people to not leave home without their American Express card.
