    Three Times The Fun (2006)

    Remember when it was fun to go to the movies? That feeling of enthusiasm, bordering on sheer abandon, that’s largely disappeared from the moviegoing experience was recaptured at World 3-D Film Expo II at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood this month.

    Great And Not-So-Great Movies...

    At year’s end it’s traditional to look back and make Ten Best Lists. The problem is that in the flurry of award season—and its attendant hype—one tends to forget how many mediocre films have come and gone, or how many months there seemed to be nothing worth going out to se...

    A Titanic Reunion

    Gloria Stuart, still glowing at age 99, poses with her good friend and Titanic costar Suzy Amis It’s hard to believe twelve years have come and gone since Titanic sailed into movie theaters. At the time of its release, most moviegoers were unfamiliar with Gloria Stuart, who played “Old Rose” in the story’s modern-day scenes, but movie film buffs knew it was the same actress who’d been a leading lady in such 1930s pictures as The Invisible Man, The Old Dark House, John Ford’s Airmail and The Prisoner of Shark Island, and two Shirley Temple vehicles, Poor Little Rich Girl and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. Gloria earned an Oscar nomination for...

    Remembering Roy Disney

    I snapped this photo of Roy when we attended the Philadelphia International Film Festival in March, 2007. The only reason he isn't wearing a Hawaiian shirt is that it was wintry that week! The last time I saw Roy E. Disney was in May, when he attended a memorial for Wayne Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse. People in the extended Disney family were delighted to see him, but somewhat taken aback at his gaunt appearance. Still, for a man who had battled cancer as vigorously—and optimistically—as he had, he seemed to be in pretty good shap...

    Clint Eastwood & Co.

    So how did I luck into a moment of serendipitous spontaneity with Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon, and Morgan Freeman? Allow me to explain. As any media veteran will tell you, participating in movie press junkets...

    Out and About with George Clooney

    George Clooney, most observers agree, is the closest thing we have to an old-fashioned Movie Star. He’s got the looks, the talent, the smarts, and the attitude. At Monday night’s premiere of Up in the Air he forsook waiting photographers and TV crews in Westwood to cross the street and spend time with his fans—a great deal of time. He normally “works” the press line, as well, but he breezed right through on Monday; fortunately he came over to say hello to me and lingered long enough for me to get in some quick questions and answers for Entertainment Tonight. And here are the results: . It was a pleasure to talk to his colleagues and costars, ...

    Grauman's Chinese Theater update:

    After posting my story (see Big Shoes to Fill - In the Rain) about hosting Robert Downey, Jr.’s hand-and-footprint ceremony I got a nice note from Stacey Behlmer, who (as Stacey Endres, then unmarried) co-wrote the definitive book on the history of the theater, Hollywood at Your Feet. She had a few notes and corrections to pass along: “I can't vouch for the ceremonies that took place after [our book] was published, but it did rain on a couple of the earlier ceremonies: James Mason was one and the Anne Baxter/Gregory Peck dual ceremony was another. Baxter actually drew an umbrella, a heart, and the sun in the cement and insc...
