    LGBT Titles Slated for Preservation by Outfest and UCLA Film & Television Archive

    Director Bill Sherwood's 1986 film, "Parting Glances," and The Mariposa Film Group's "Word is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives" (1978) will be the first two gay films restored under a program by the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Outfest, dubbed the Outfest Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation. The project has already established the world's largest publicly accessible collection of LGBT films since its establishment in 2005, according to a release by the groups. LGBT independent films - including significant titles from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s - are in particular peril because of a perceived lack of commercial value by the indus...

    NY Times: A Big Star May Not a Profitable Movie Make

    Is Sumner M. Redstone crazy like a fox? Movie industry executives may be forgiven for thinking that the Viacom chairman was mad to let Tom Cruise go after a 14-year relationship simply because Mr. Cruise seemed a little off balance.
