omg my new best friend just sent me the perfect job ad. see you, losers! i’m moving to hollywood.
“I`ll tell you one of the reasons I`m ready to leave. When I first came to Hollywood five years ago, my makeup call was at eight in the morning. On this movie it`s been put back to seven-thirty. Every day I see Joan Crawford, who`s been in makeup since five, and Loretta Young, who`s been there since four in the morning. I`ll be god-damned if I`m going to stay in a business where I have to get up earlier and earlier and it takes longer and longer for me to get in front of a camera.”
there’s a ladylike camouflaged diss. well done, princess.
easily my favourite from these guys’ hollywood visualization challenge.
this movie gets instant reblog.
From a magazine advertisement for High Society, 1956. Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong.
and what a swell movie this is.
Grace Kelly & Frank Sinatra on the set of ‘High Society’
Watching Spike Lee’s race musical School Daze again. This scene is so great — good hair vs. bad hair politix as acted out in jitterbug dance scene. Love the choreography, plus spot Jasmine Guy, she’s a pretty good dancer.
You know Lee asked EU to write ‘Da Butt’ specifically for this movie? Learned that thru his slightly strange/selectively verbose but characteristically Knicks-fealty twitter feed.
this looks okay. naw more like everything i like in a movie. to the youtubes!
these are the only things that make me cry. it’s a little much to ask when they get into the busier work of filming, but i hope there’s more to come with this level of coverage.
And we’re off: Video blog from the set of THE HOBBIT, Day One. That did my heart some good.
grace kelly and audrey hepburn, backstage at the oscars. yowza.
written, directed and photographed by howard schatz. these are from vanity fair.
Photographer Howard Schatz had an idea: place actors in a series of roles and dramatic situations to reveal the essence of their characters. Such was the premise behind his book, In Character: Actors Acting, which captures some of Hollywood’s most emotive stars in the act of, well, making faces.
these are my favourite:
"I know older men in comedy who can barely feed and clean themselves, and they still work. The women, though, they’re all ‘crazy.’ I have a suspicion — and hear me out, because this is a rough one — that the definition of “crazy” in show business is a woman who keeps talking even after no one want to fuck her anymore."
