Movie Poster of the Week: “The Private Life of Henry VIII” and Charles Laughton in Posters

  • MUBI
Above: Us three-sheet poster for The Private Life of Henry VIII (Alexander Korda, UK, 1933).

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

Top 10 Musicals That Should Be Made Into Movies

There are two upcoming movie musicals that, for a long time, I've wanted to make into motion pictures, should someone with money be willing to give me the funds to make them -- Into The Woods and The Last 5 Years. I'm both nervous and excited to see how directors Rob Marshall and Richard Lagravenese, respectfully, have interpreted the material I hold so close to my heart. I am especially nervous for Into The Woods, given Marshall's less than impressive track record. If someone is going to screw up something I cherish, it should be me. Of course, there are far more than two musicals I have a deep connection to. Some have already been made into films, like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Les Miserables, but there is a vast collection of musicals I have thought could make fantastic films, but have never been made.

Baby-Faced U2 Images Go On Display

Baby-Faced U2 Images Go On Display
Dublin — In the beginning there was Bono. And what a baby face he had.

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

A Sad Day: Actor Karl Malden Dead Aged 97

  • MovieFanboys
Actor Karl Malden died at his home in Brentwood, Los Angeles...

<!--break-->

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

Veteran Actor Karl Malden Dead at 97

Karl Malden the everyman's actor who won an Oscar for his performance as Mitch in 1951's A Streetcar Named Desire, died today at his home in Los Angeles.

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.
