Patience Abbe, Child Chronicler of Travels, Dies at 87

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Abbe children household names and enticed Hollywood executives to summon Patience and her brothers, Richard, 10, and John, 8, for screen tests. They palled around for months with the likes of Shirley Temple and Freddie Bartholomew, but their globetrotting had left them unprepared for work that required “a lot of standing around,” as Richard described it, and they never made a movie. Ms. Abbe, who died on March 17 in Redding, Calif., at 87, was by all accounts the predominant narrating voice of “Around the World” and its sequels, “Of All Places!” (1937) and “No Place Like Home” (1940). Her death was confirmed by her daughter Shelley Rogé. All the books were collections of observations by the three children, as dictated to their mother, the former Polly Shorrock of the Bronx, who was a Ziegfeld girl when she met her future husband in 1921. But it was the hyperarticulate Patience who defined them, dazzling critics with observations about bus-riding Parisians who surrender their seats to women with children... (New York Times)

Andrew Breitbart, barrier-busting media critic - Washington Post (blog)

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
His frequent appearances on cable networks plus his Web site properties, featuring Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Hollywood, made him perhaps the most successful member-cum-critic of the mainstream media. One of Zernike’s own recollections reflects just how quickly Breitbart could change hats: “I had seen him only once before, at the Tea Party convention in Nashville in February 2010, before he was about to take the stage to introduce Sarah Palin. He was hanging around the risers in back where the cameras were set up, with a glass of wine in his hand, joking around with some of the reporters. I didn’t realize who he was. I thought he was just another reporter, then suddenly he was onstage delivering this fiery anti-media speech.” Pity the obituary writers, who have to sort through Breitbart’s various roles and, in some cases, his contempt for their own media outlets. William McDonald, the obituaries editor of the New York Times, says that “if Breitbart had an ax to grind with the New York Times, which I’m sure he did,” that consideration wouldn’t necessarily figure in the obit coverage “unless it became a news event.” And just what qualifies as a news event these days is anyone’s guess. Andrew Meacham, a reporter at the Tampa Bay Times who does obituaries, voices the sentiment that many of Breitbart’s targets in the mainstream media must feel: “The conundrum about him, just having seen him on television, is that I can’t figure out if he was really a committed ideologue who was also trying to make a name for himself, or if he was largely having fun by creating this character, and in the course of doing that, sometimes got carried away with himself.” ...

Actress Kim Novak explains feelings behind 'Artist' protest - Greenville News

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
I never reported my real rape, so I felt the need to report this one,” said Novak, who left Hollywood in the 1970s for Big Sur, an isolated section of California coastline, before eventually relocating to Oregon. “I felt that someone needed to speak up because the music has been taken advantage of too much. I hope that in the future, maybe somehow it will do some good.” Michel Hazanavicius, the writer-director of “The Artist,” which won five Academy Awards last month, including best picture and original score, responded to Novak in January, noting that the film was “a love letter to cinema” and that he loves “Bernard Herrmann, and his music has been used in many different films, and I’m very pleased to have it in mine.” (Page 2 of 2) Novak said that the motion picture academy sent her a letter disapproving of her making the statement while “The Artist” was in Oscar contention. She acknowledged that after getting “over the shock” that the “Vertigo” love theme was used in “The Artist,” she actually enjoyed the film and thought it deserved its Oscar glory — except for the best original score trophy. On April 14, as part of the TCM Classic Film Festival, Novak will add her hand and footprints to the Grauman’s Chinese Theater forecourt, where Hollywood stars have been honored since the 1920s. She will also introduce a screening of “Vertigo” and participate in an interview with TCM host Robert Osborne for a special scheduled to be broadcast next year. “I was an original,” said Novak of her highly lauded “Vertigo” role. “I didn’t give a performance that was prepared for in a Hollywood or theatrical sense. I didn’t study a style of acting. I gave a performance that was from my gu...

Monkees singer Davy Jones dead at 66

Wed, Feb 29, 2012
Nesmith. In 1987, Jones, Tork, and Dolenz recorded a new album, “Pool It.” And two years later, the group received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All four, however, came together for a 1996 album, “Justus,” and a subsequent TV movie “Hey, Hey, It's The Monkees!” that saw them still living in the same house and still traveling in the Monkeemobile — just like old times. Jones, who is survived by his wife Jessica, continued to make appearances on television and stage later. But it was the fame of The Monkees that pulled him back to that era time and time again. On his website, he recalled during auditions for the show when all four men finally were put together in a scene. “That's it,” he recalled everyone around him saying: “Magic.” Associated Press writers Nekesa Mumbi Moody and Frazier Moore in New York and John Rogers in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

Theodore Mann, Off Broadway Producer, Dies at 87

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
The New York Times and a biographer of O’Neill. “It was amazing to witness how year after year his Circle in the Square paved the way for a parade of gifted actors to Broadway and Hollywood.” The Circle’s 1956 revival of “The Iceman Cometh,” starring Robards, is widely viewed as a landmark in the re-evaluation of O’Neill’s legacy and a prime example of the company’s attention to neglected plays. The positive response to that production prompted O’Neill’s widow, Carlotta Monterey, to release Quintero and Mr. Mann the rights to the playwright’s other works, including “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.” Produced by Mr. Mann with Quintero and Leigh Connell, and directed by Quintero, the Broadway premiere won the 1957 Tony Award for best play. Mr. Mann was born Theodore Goldman on May 13, 1924, in Brooklyn. (He changed his name in the late 1940s.) He spent World War II in the Army medical corps stationed at Fort Ord in Monterey, Calif. His son Jonathan said it was during this period that he became acquainted with people in the arts like Robinson Jeffers, Ansel Adams and Langston Hughes, who fueled his desire for a career in the arts. Returning to New York, he followed the wishes of his father, Martin Goldman, a lawyer and jazz club owner, and enrolled through the G.I. Bill at Brooklyn Law School. But though he passed the bar exam, he was never drawn to a career in law. His association with Quintero began on a visit to Woodstock, N.Y., where Quintero invited him to stay on as business manager of a Woodstock company, the Loft Players. An offshoot of that company, Circle in the Square, had its original home in a former nightclub in Sheridan Square in Greenwich Village. The theater opened in 1951 with “Dark of the Moon.” But it was “Summer and Smoke” the following year — starring the unknown ... (New York Times)

Billy Strange dies at 81; guitarist, arranger for Presley, Nancy Sinatra - Los Angeles Times

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
William Everett Strange was born Sept. 29, 1930, in Long Beach and early on established a musical identity with his own work. He recorded at Capitol Records in Hollywood in the early '50s, playing country and boogie-woogie flavored numbers such as "Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves" and "The Crazy Quilt Rag." In 1962 an instrumental that Strange wrote, and which had been recorded by the Champs of "Tequila" fame, became a huge hit for "The Twist" singer Chubby Checker after songwriter Kal Mann added lyrics to Strange's music, allowing Checker to extend his dominance in the dance-craze genre. "Limbo Rock" exploited the early-'60s fascination in the U.S. with the limbo, and Strange's song gave limbo parties an anthem to be built around. Strange held no illusions about the long-term artistic merit of the pulsing number, which he described as "just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard." With his all-around skills as a songwriter, arranger and player, Strange was soon in high demand in recording studios, adding to sessions with Ricky Nelson, the Everlys and Spector, the latter connection segueing into work with Spector disciple Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, for whom he played on their high-watermark album "Pet Sounds" in 1966. Those credits helped bring him to the attention of Presley, whose career as a recording artist faltered in the 1960s as he focused on formulaic Hollywood movies set up for him by his manager, Col. Tom Parker. After that first meeting, Presley and Strange became close friends. "Elvis used to call me up around 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. and say, 'Hey Billy, let's go for a ride,' " Strange recalled in 2002, when "A Little Less Conversation," a song that he and Mac Davis had written for Presley 33 years earlier, suddenly was a hit again thanks to an electronic dance remix by Amsterdam DJ Junkie XL. "I lost a dear friend when Elvis died. I couldn't bring myself to go to the funeral of one who expired so needlessly and tragically." Strange's path intersected with that of another 20th century pop music titan when he and songwriter-producer Lee Hazlewood were auditioning songs with Nancy Sinatra for her debut album. "Lee and Billy came over and Lee was picking some things on the guitar, and I said, 'I like the one about the boots,' " Nancy told Larry King in 2002. "My dad, when he was leaving, he said, 'You're right. It's the one about the boots.' A hit song is a hit song. The only other time I felt that feeling was with 'Somethin' Stupid,' and it also went to No. 1." Strange served as arranger on most of her recordings and also played on many of them.

Heart & Soul: the hyphenated culture of African-American Native-Americans - Open Democracy

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
No city in America has been affected by its relationship with Native Americans in the manner encountered in New Orleans.  While John Wayne and his Hollywood troopers were depicted blasting away at Indians, who were themselves encircling wagon trains of settlers with an eye on prime scalp acquisition, the people of the Crescent City were offering nothing much more aggressive than amusement to the tribes that live in the swamps surrounding the settlement. A combination of Indians and Mardi Gras have been at the heart of New Orleans’ culture si...

Blake Griffin Will Dunk On Your Face - Wall Street Journal (blog)

Tue, Jan 31, 2012
Since leaving football, Sabelhaus has clawed his way to a job as a fledgling producer in the Hollywood scene, having worked on movies like “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Constantine,” and the unforgettable Amanda Bynes Oscar contender, “She’s the Man.” It’s an unexpected though happily received career change, maybe enough to placate Gator lifers who expected him to be the second coming of Danny Wuerffel. Currently working on a science-fiction adaptation of “The Count of Monte Cristo” (yes, really), Sabelhaus isn’t at all disappointed with how his life has turned out, telling Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples that the experience prepared him for the constant Hollywood grind. Of course, recruiting has changed since he came of age. Back then, his top ranking was determined by a few magazines, rather than the consensus of a dedicated national media that wouldn’t necessarily make such a designation so haphazardly. “It’s difficult to project what might have happened had Sabelhaus grown up in the current age of non-stop recruiting coverage. He might have become a bigger celebrity, and thus a bigger bust,” Staples writes. “Or, the intensity of the attention might have made it obvious to all even before National Signing Day a href="" target="_bla...
