    Disney Museum Kickoff

    There is an extended Disney family that includes veteran animators and artists, Imagineers, contemporary filmmakers, fans, and enthusiasts. Many of them were on hand for the gala opening of the Walt Disney Family Museum on September 29, and I snapped as many as I could. (Photography is not allowed ...

    Disney Museum In A Word: Dazzling

    A cut-out of Walt Disney and his family on their backyard train greeted guests on opening night.When Walt Disney’s surviving daughter, Diane Disney Miller, set out to create a museum in her father’s honor, no one (including Diane) knew how it should look or what it might include. I sat in on an earl...

    Stamp of Approval

    For the fifteenth in a series of Hollywood Legend stamps, the U.S. Postal Service chose to honor Gary Cooper, and I was privileged to host the first day of issue ceremony held, appropriately enough, at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles. Cooper didn’t just make Westerns, of course, but I reckon if you asked most people to instantly name one Gary Cooper movie the answer you’d get most often would be High Noon. The actor’s charming daughter, Maria Cooper Janis, was the morning’s guest of honor. She has kept her father’s memory alive in many ways; she compiled a lovely picture-and-text book, Gary Cooper Off-Camera: A Daughter Remembe...

    Celebrating Telluride

    Even a rank amateur like me can take good pictures in Telluride. The setting is beautiful and famous people are relaxed and don’t mind being photographed. On Friday morning of Labor Day Weekend there is a brunch for festival patrons and special guests which I’m privileged to attend; that’s when I start snapping away, and you never know whom you’ll capture in the same frame. This first photo has special significance because when Laura Linney first came to Telluride with Kinsey in 2004 she fell in love with longtime festival staffer Marc Schauer—and earlier this year they were married. Linney travels the globe for her work, but has become ...

    A Leap Into The Digital Age

    I can hardly believe it, but the new 2010 edition of Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide is now available as an iPhone and iTouch app! The hard-working team at MobileAge has reconfigured the material in both the current annual (along with titles we were forced to delete in recent years, to make space)...

    Oscar, Take A Bow

    Todd Wawrychuk / ©A.M.P.A.S. Like many other movie lovers and purists, I was upset when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that it would be removing all honorary awards from its Oscar broadcast in 2010. This was often the highlight of the show for me, though I realize that...

    Movies: The Cure For What Ails You

    I’ve been in the grip of a bad cold for almost two weeks; I somehow manage to get my most important work done and then I go to sleep every day. By Wednesday afternoon I was so frustrated—tired but restless at the same time—I decided I couldn’t stare at the wall (or my com...
