Frederica Sagor Maas, Scriptwriter From the Silent Era, Dies at 111

Sun, Jan 15, 2012
She dropped out of college to scout Broadway for movie ideas. She moved to Hollywood, rejected encouragement to be an actress and wrote for the Universal, MGM, Paramount and Fox studios. After the industry had no further use for her work, she almost committed suicide. Much later, after giving up on Hollywood, Mrs. Maas said she would have preferred to be a “wash lady.” Still, Hollywood gave her stories to tell: about meeting Crawford, whom she called “a gum-chewing dame,” and helping her find the sort of tailored clothes she herself favored; about seeing Clara Bow dancing naked on a table at a Jazz Age blowout. Sex, she wrote, became as “humdrum as washing your face or cleansing your teeth.” Frederica Sagor, one of four daughters, was born on July 6, 1900, in a cold-water railroad flat at 101st Street near Madison Avenue in Manhattan. Her parents, Jewish immigrants from Russia, shortened their name from Zagosky. Frederica gave up plans to be a doctor and studied journalism at Columbia. She worked a summer as a copy girl for The New York Globe. She joined the movie industry, and left school, after answering a want ad for an assistant to the story editor at Universal Pictures in New York. Getting the job, she learned about movies by seeing ones she liked three or four times, studying them frame by frame. “I was fierce in my passion for this new medium,” she wrote in her memoir, “The Shocking Miss Pilgrim: A Writer in Early Hollywood.” In 1924, Frederica Sagor moved to Hollywood to write for Preferr...

Joseph Farrell Dies at 76; Used Market Research to Shape Films

Mon, Dec 26, 2011
Madame Butterfly.” Preview audiences rejected the ending as unsatisfying, however, and at the insistence of a marketing executive, Joseph Farrell, Paramount Pictures had the director, Adrian Lyne, reshoot it. In the revision, Ms. Close’s character and her paramour, played by Michael Douglas, have a violent struggle in which she is nearly drowned in a bathtub and is finally dispatched by a gunshot fired by his wife (Anne Archer). With the new ending, “Fatal Attraction” was nominated for six Oscars and earned more than $300 million in box-office receipts worldwide. “Joe is the one most responsible for ‘Fatal Attraction’ becoming the gigantic hit it became,” Sidney M. Ganis, who was Paramount’s president for worldwide marketing at the time, said in an interview. “The audience told Joe this is a great movie until the end.” “They didn’t want to s...

Herhold: Remembering old downtown San Jose's signature department store - San Jose Mercury News

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
Rechenmacher remembers. "She literally hand-wrote the instructions for each person." When A.J. Hart died in 1943, his younger son, Alex, returned from a job writing music for Paramount in Los Angeles to take over the store. For the next quarter century, he remained at the helm of Hart's downtown. Loyalty to downtown Though he was criticized on business grounds for not seizing the chance to become an anchor tenant at Valley Fair, Alex Hart showed enormous loyalty to downtown. His employees loved him. "Alex was the store," said Dorothy Hogan, who worked for him as assistant treasurer in 1966 and 1967. "You never had to make appointments to see him. The lady from housewares would come up and knock on the door, and say, 'Alex, can I see you for a while?' He'd say, 'Of course, sit down.' " Yet by the mid-'60s, the die was cast for the downtown store. Beginning with Valley Fair, a ring of suburban shopping centers sucked the life out of downtown. And by 1968, even Alex Hart called it quits at Market and Santa Clara, moving to the Hart's branch at West Gate mall. A soulless eight-story office building went up on the downtown site. More than a year after Alex died at age 89, the memories remain, in the warehouse sign, and in the picture of Hart's employees in the early '30s on the second floor of City Hall. Second from left, if I'm not mistaken, is Brooke Hart. Dorothy Hogan went on to work for IBM but always thought of her old boss, Alex. "I've thought that I need to treat people like Alex treated people," she said. "They were part of the store. They were Hart's. We were all Hart's."

Joe Simon, a Creator of Captain America, Is Dead at 98

Thu, Dec 15, 2011
He eventually moved to New York, where his first job was for Paramount Pictures, retouching still photographs of movie stars. “I retouched some of the most famous bosoms in motion pictures — Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Carole Lombard and Dorothy Lamour,” he wrote. “Good bosom men were considered experts and got lots of work. I could hold up a sagging bust line with the best of them.” Eventually he began freelancing for glossy magazines, and an editor who admired his work recommended he seek employment in an emerging business hungry for artists: comics. He met Mr. Kirby in the late 1930s when they were both working for a comic-book company known as Fox Publications. After the comic-book industry waned in the mid-1950s, Mr. Simon worked mostly as a commercial artist and in advertising, though he occasionally returned to comics. He founded a satirical magazine called Sick to compete with Mad in 1960, and was its editor for several years. Mr. Simon is survived by five children and eight grandchildren. Further information about survivors was not available. Mr. Simon and Mr. Kirby produced 10 issues of Captain America for Timely before they ran afoul of the publisher and were fired. They moved to Detective Comics (later DC), but Captain America stayed at Timely. Marvel, Timely’s successor, has continued to publish it off and on. Mr. Kirby died in 1994. In 2003, Mr. Simon and Marvel reached an agreement that granted him royalties for merchandising and licensing of the character and ensured that he and Mr. Kirby would be recognized as the creators of the character. The movie “Captain America: The First Avenger,” with both their names in the credits, was released this year. (New York Times)

Marion Dougherty, Hollywood Star-Maker, Dies at 88

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
Ms. Dougherty, who got her start in the early days of live television in New York, was casting director for more than 100 movies, at Paramount Pictures and as vice president of casting at Warner Brothers from 1979 until 1999. Her credits include “Bonnie and Clyde” and “The Graduate” (both 1967), “Midnight Cowboy” (1969), “The Sting” (1973), “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” (1976), “The Killing Fields” (1984), “Full Metal Jacket” (1987), “Gorillas in the Mist” (1988) and “Batman” (1989). Drawing on her experience in New York, Ms. Dougherty had a strong hand in reshaping the way Hollywood casts films as it moved away from the old studio system and its “cattle calls” in the 1960s. When she arrived in Hollywood she brought her index-card file filled with the names of promising actors she had spotted Off Broadway, in regional theaters and in summer stock. As casting director for NBC’s “Kraft Tele... (New York Times)

Ministering to the dying: A day in the life of a hospice spiritual counselor - PennLive.com

Tue, Oct 25, 2011
Tom Herald died at home. Medkeff-Rose said he is keeping his promise and staying in touch with the family.Helping patients and their families to understand the dying process is paramount for Medkeff-Rose. He is there to help families understand why a person stops eating, why they talk about packing bags and why they seemingly withdraw — it’s all part of letting go of earthly life. He especially keeps an eye out for any children or teens affected by the family member’s death and offers them a listening ear and “anything they need so they don’t feel left out,” he said. He also works in concert with a patient’s own clergy or spiritual counsel. “Our partnership is outstanding,” said the Rev. Myrtle McCall, associate pastor for pastoral care at Mechanicsburg Presbyterian Church. “Brian has a gentle but firm way of getting to the nuts and bolts of where a patient is, of saying what needs to be said and of affirming them where they are. He lays the groundwork so I can go deeper into the spiritual side of things, especially when planning the memorial worship service.” Medkeff-Rose identifies himself as a follower of Jesus, but said he can minister to a patient of any religion, affirming whatever peace or energy the person’s spirituality calls on at the time of death and making sure whatever cultural or religious practices they embrace are honored. A true believer in the supportive power of hospice, Medkeff-Rose said he wishes more people would take advantage of the hospice benefit. “Only 10 out of 100 people utilize their hospice benefit even though they are eligible,” he said. “I think hospice is phenomenal.” ...
