Birthday Remembrance, Mary Pickford
April 8, 1892 – May 29, 1979

Known during the height of her career as “America’s Sweetheart” and the “girl with the curls“, Pickford was a co-founder of United Artists film studio and one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She was awarded the second ever Academy Award for Best Actress for her first ‘talkie’ film role in Coquette (1929).

Her film career spanned over four decades with over 250 film credits. Mary was the older sister of actors Lottie Pickford (1893-1936) and Jack Pickford (1896-1933).

In her personal life, Pickford was married three times to actors Owen Moore (1911-1920), Douglas Fairbanks Sr. (1920-1936) and Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers (1937-1979).

ABSOLUTAMENTE DIVINA

divina

She adopted two children with Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers; a son Ronald Charles Rogers ( b.1937) and a daughter Roxanne Rogers (1944- 2007).

Pickford died at the age of 87 in Santa Monica, California of a cerebral hemorrhage and is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California.

  • 125º aniversário de Mary Pickford

  • Lights, camera, action! Today’s doodle honors the “Queen of the Movies,” Mary Pickford. An actress, a film director, and a producer, Mary Pickford proved that actors weren’t relegated to careers in front of the camera. She co-founded the film studio United Artists and was one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

    Before she became one of the most powerful women who has ever worked in Hollywood, she was “the girl with the curls,” and one of the most beloved stars of the silent film era. She appeared in as many as 50 films per year, and eventually negotiated wages that were equal to half of each of her films’ profits. She went on to demand full creative and financial control of her films, a feat still unheard of to this day.

    13254156_1042197619150790_8029199968819590066_n

    She used her stardom to bring awareness to causes close to her heart. She sold Liberty Bonds during World War I, created the Motion Picture Relief Fund, and revolutionized the film industry by giving independent film producers a way to distribute their films outside the studio system. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role in Coquette (1929), and an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement in 1976.

    Today, we pay tribute to Mary Pickford’s enterprising leadership on what would be her 125th birthday.

“Filmes de Hollywood retratam os muçulmanos como criaturas boazinhas, inocentes e vítimas de preconceito.

Filmes de Hollywood retratam os russos como criminosos, gângsteres, maus, pérfidos.

Filmes de Hollywood retratam os cristãos conservadores como criminosos, maus, pérfidos.

Como Hollywood tem uma visão deturpada e invertida da realidade, o que ela vê como mau é bom, e vice-versa.” Júlio Severo.

O que é cinema para você?

06/03/2017

O cinema faz parte de nossas vidas. Se você entrar para o exército e for servir no Havaí, bem o Burt Lancaster poderá ser o seu sargento. Se vc naufragar e ficar numa ilha, Irene Dunne poderá te fazer companhia, ih esta moça nunca vai perder aquele horrível sotaque sulista. Se viajar pelas estradas sulistas, Clark Gable e Claudete Colbert poderão te pedir carona. Se estiver no gelo em algum ponto de ônibus no Nebraska, Marilyn poderá estar ao seu lado. Ei! é verdade que vc alugou seu apartamento pra Shirley Maclaine? E aquele iate lá em Newport, eram mesmo Bing Crosby e Gracy Kelly que estavam nele? Lembra daquela vez em Nova York, no porto, que Frank, Jules Munshin e Geenne Kelly estavam cantando lá? Bem, se você for a um cabaré, poderá sentar-se ao lado de Liza Minelli. Olha, a tv era bem melhor quando Faye Dunaway mandava. Muita gente tem medo de entrar nos estúdios de madrugada; na Paramount, p. ex., a Mary Pickford, que foi sócia lá, está sempre de madrugada com outros fantasmas comentando seus velhos filmes. Uma vez foi vista com o velho Mayer. É, poucos sabem que a Rainha do Cinema foi sócia da Paramount. Uma forma que acharam para pagarem os salários exorbitantes dela. A Namoradinha da América ficou mais conhecida por fundar a United Artists, quando os loucos tomaram conta do hospício. Falando nisto, Debbie Reynolds e sua filhinha com o Eddy Fisher, a princesinha, estão agora naquele grande estúdio lá no céu. Vc sabe, Pick-Fair ainda existe e está do mesmo jeito. E a Hedda Hopper já foi vista nos arquivos do Los Angeles Times, relendo seus velhos artigos. Ei, lembra daquela vez que comprei aquela casa que tinha uma vizinha feiticeira? Falando nisto, aquela casa que foi da senhora Myr, ainda tem fantasma lá. Cuidado lá em Glendale: os guardas Keystone ainda ficam naquelas correiras nas ruas; não foi sem razão que receberam o apelido de “The movies”. Ah, sabia que na última vez que estive em Culver City, o fordinho do Gordo e do Magro estava parado em frente onde era o estúdio do Wall Roach? Não espalha, mas a Clara Bow ainda sai com time de baseball. Tenho uma novidade,, lá na praia de Malibu trombei com sabe quem né? Frank Avalon, Linda Evans e Annette Funicelllo,, e a Linda diz que vai estrelar um Bang Bang na TV. É, essa garota vai longe, vem de uma grande dinastia. Outra de praia; lá na praia de Santa Mônica, uma ruivinha, uma tal de Norma Jean, tirava fotos, bem não quero ser descobridor de talentos, mas acho que esta moça devia tentar algo em Hollywood. Ei, será que o Irving Thalberg ainda acha que os talkies são moda passageira? Não deixe de visitar o Rick´s American Bar, caso for a Casablanca, ainda está aberto, como o Bagdá Café que nunca fecha. Se procurar diversão, Lulu ainda faz programa. Não esqueço aquela vez que vi, de pertinho, a Rita Hayworth, naquele velho Casino lá em Buenos Aires. Acredita? Trombei de novo em Nova York aquele taxista que é a cara do Robert de Niro. Soube do avião que caiu semana passada? Carole Lombard estava nele. Tem uma birosca aqui perto de casa em que o Marlon Brando e os seus motoqueiros colam nele. É uma barulheira só. Bem, aqui perto também tem um ensaio de orquestra que sempre vou assistir.

Hollywood mais uma vez promovendo filme homossexual

Hollywood mais uma vez promovendo filme homossexual

Franklin Graham

Os Oscars deste final de semana tiveram uma grande confusão sobre a qual os meios de comunicação não param de falar, e alguns estão chegando a especular que pode ter sido apenas um golpe de publicidade.

Franklin Graham

Não sei sobre isso, mas em ambos os casos, muitos que nunca haviam ouvido falar do filme “Moonlight,” que recebeu prêmio de melhor imagem, agora ouviram.

A partir das análises cinematográficas que li, “Moonlight” mostra um jovem negro gay amadurecendo e o estereotipa como violento, traficante de drogas e criminoso condenado.

Hollywood é notória por glorificar o pecado. Esse é só outro exemplo da agenda LGBT para tornar escolhas de estilos de vida que Deus define como pecado parecerem culturalmente mais e mais aceitáveis.

Alerto as famílias e as igrejas — não permitam que seus jovens sejam engolidos pelo plano das trevas de Hollywood. Nós amamos as pessoas, mas precisamos ser honestos sobre as consequências do pecado.

Pecado é pecado — não importa se recebe um Oscar ou não.

Traduzido por Julio Severo do original em inglês do Facebook de Franklin Graham.

O que é Cinema – Saiba mais sobre o Cinema

15/11/2014

O Cinema faz parte da indústria do entretenimento, como o circo, o carnaval (que também é industrializado) a Televisão, o videogame, o teatro (o mais antigo), shows e os cassinos.
A Indústria do Cinema é extremamente profissionalizada.
A Indústria Cinematográfica funciona como qualquer outra grande indústria: Com o seu Setor de Folha de Pagamento, de Finanças, Relação com investidores, Departamento de Pessoal, de Pesquisa de Mercado, de Publicidade e Marketing, com empréstimos em bancos, com ações em bolsa de valores, e, com a sua banca de advogados, problemas com direitos autorais e com o imposto de renda.
Todas as empresas de cinema, como as de qualquer outro setor da economia americana têm problemas com o Departamento do Comércio dos EUA. Como exemplo, qualquer compra de uma empresa por outra passa pela aprovação do departamento do comércio para ver se não fere as leis anti-cartéis.
Assim, como um exemplo, a indústria cinematográfica não pode possuir salas de exibição de filmes, pois isto seria formar monopólio.
Todas as seis grandes empresas cinematográficas dos EUA, (Major Studios), hoje existentes em Hollywood, e em seus arredores, pertencem a grandes conglomerados de empresas, e, juntas com a Lionsgate, arrecadam 90 por cento da bilheteria das salas de cinema nos EUA.
arrecadam, juntas com a Lionsgate, 90 por cento da bilheteria das salas de cinema nos EUA.
Como toda grande indústria, a indústria cinematográfica tem suas falsificações chinesas e indianas (as maiores – e, a falsificação indiana é chamada de Bollywood).
Há ainda, mundo afora, malucos amadores que fazem filmes de fundo de quintal até hoje.
Quem não entende que o Cinema funciona como uma indústria como qualquer outra é analfabeto de pai e de mãe em relação a Cinema.
As seis grandes, Major Studios, empresas de cinema atualmente estão situadas:
Em Hollywood, Los Angeles, Califórnia – a Paramount.

Nos arredores de Hollywood, estão 5 majors studios:– A Disney/Buena Vista, Warner, Universal/Dreenworks, Fox, e, a Sony.

Cada uma das grandes empresas da indústria de cinema procura ocupar todos os espaços do setor de entretenimento por imagem:
A tendência é todas terem tem sua rede de TV, (hoje, totalmente digital, nos EUA), sua TV a cabo, TV parabólica, sua divisão de videogame, de Home Video, de produtos derivados dos filmes como camisetas etc., seu resort, e, seu parque de diversões temático.
Com isto, seus filmes são distribuídos das mais diferentes formas, e, não só nas salas de cinema, além de melhorar o relacionamento com o cliente.
Como os demais setores da economia, hoje, a relação com o cliente conta muito: visitas aos estúdios e aos parques dos estúdios são estimuladas.

Roupa de Super Homem e merchandising em geral ajudam no relacionamento com os clientes.

O cinema também é indústria como qualquer outra também em relação aos sindicatos: hoje não se pode mais trabalhar sobre contrato, e, os atores trabalham como free- lancers, o que tornou poderosos os agentes de talento que vendem pacotes às empresas produtoras de filmes.
Quem entende e gosta de cinema sabe que o começo da indústria não foi fácil, sendo por isto, ligado à história do cinema, aos seus heróis, e, aos seus pioneiros.
Tem-se sempre uma dívida de gratidão com aqueles malucos que cruzaram a América de trem, numa viajem de 5.000 km, para vir parar em um loteamento novo, e ali, na pobreza no meio dos porcos, e filmando na rua, por não ter luz elétrica, corriam pelas ruas de Hollywood, onde os ainda poucos moradores assustados começaram por causa das correrias a os chamarem de “THE MOVIES”.
Não havia a menor chance de dar certo, em 1911, naquele fim de mundo, na esquina da SUNSET BOULEVARD com GOWER STREET, (onde hoje fica o Sunset-Gower Studios e o Techinicollor), convencer atores e atrizes da Brodway, em Nova Iorque, a virem de trem para aquele fim de mundo, e, embarcar latas de filmes para viajarem 5.000 km para serem exibidos em Nova York. Não havia a menor chance de dar certo.
Este ano de 2014 foi o Jubileu de Diamante, 75 anos, do melhor ano da História de Hollywood, 1939, que rendeu 15 clássicos.
Este pequeno vídeo de 1 minuto e meio mostra aquele pessoal maravilhoso de 1939, na entrega do Oscar daquele que foi o melhor ano da História de Hollywood.
Muita gente, assistindo 75 anos depois, acha que é montagem, que não é possível que estivessem todos reunidos em um mesmo jantar.
Mas não é montagem, aconteceu mesmo naquela noite memorável:

Destes todos que aparecem no vídeo, ainda vive, em 2014, Olivia de Havilland, com 97 anos, em Paris, e, até hoje, tem gente querendo colocar o nome da filha de Melanie em homenagem à Olivia de Havilland.

Happiest of birthdays to Olivia de Havilland who turns 98 today!

The winner of two lead actress Academy Awards for 1946’s “To Each His Own” and 1949’s “The Heiress,” she is best known for her Oscar-nominated turn as Melanie in 1939’s “Gone With the Wind” and her films with Errol Flynn including 1935’s “Captain Blood” and 1938’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood.”

Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) MM 88 years – Thank you, Marilyn, for touching our lives in a way no one ever did before

01/06/2014

88 years ago this beautiful creature was born.

10402904_753479414674102_1935675284121068393_n

She was nature’s gift for all mankind. She started from nothing and built her entire life around her desire to make people happy. She went through hard times, often having not many friends around that could help her cope with loneliness and sadness, but she managed, somehow, to overcome some of the disappointments she experienced. Most of them, except one: that of having her own child.
She gave a lot of her money to help those in need, took time to understand other people’s problems, loved animals and nature, enjoyed learning and discovering new things, fought for her rights as an artist and for many other noble causes.
But she was a master of her craft and that’s what made her unforgettable. She left behind a legacy that will never fade or be forgotten. She won worldwide recognition for what she achieved in film industry in times when not many stars were daring enough to stand up against the manipulative studios.
She gave joy to the world without asking anything in return but to be respected.

10373799_10152295888927562_8058411481885812812_n

This is the magical Marilyn Monroe and today we’re happy to say:

Thank you, Marilyn, for touching our lives in a way no one ever did before.

You will forever remain the funny and beautiful woman that shines on screen like the most precious diamond that has yet to be discovered!

 

On this day in 1926: Marilyn Monroe born

Norma Jeane Mortenson–who will become better known around the world as the glamorous actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe–is born on this day in 1926, in Los Angeles, California. She was later given her mother’s name, and baptized Norma Jeane Baker. After a tumultuous childhood–both maternal grandparents and her mother were committed to mental institutions, and she lived with a string of foster families–Norma Jeane married one of her neighbors, James Dougherty, when she was 16. He later joined the Merchant Marines and was sent to the South Pacific during World War II. A photographer “discovered” the naturally photogenic Norma Jeane while she was working in a California munitions factory, and she was soon launched into a successful modeling career. She divorced Dougherty in June 1946 and soon after signed a film contract with 20th Century Fox.

At the outset of her acting career, Norma Jeane dyed her brown hair blonde and changed her name again, calling herself Marilyn Monroe (Monroe was her grandmother’s last name). After a bit part in 1947’s The Shocking Miss Pilgrim, she had a string of forgettable roles before landing a spot in John Huston’s thriller The Asphalt Jungle (1950). That same year, she also drew attention for her work in All About Eve, starring Bette Davis. Her true breakout performance, however, came in Niagara (1953), a thriller in which Monroe played an adulterous young wife who plots with her lover to kill her husband.

After starring turns in Gentleman Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire–both also released in 1953–Monroe was at the top of Hollywood’s A-list. In January 1954, she married baseball great Joe DiMaggio at San Francisco’s City Hall after a two-year romance. Though the press hailed their relationship as the quintessential All-American love affair, trouble began brewing almost immediately. DiMaggio was notoriously uncomfortable with his new wife’s sexy public image, and her wild popularity, as evidenced by the near-riot among U.S. servicemen stationed in Korea during a performance she gave in the middle of the couple’s honeymoon. They would divorce that October, after only nine months of marriage, but remained good friends. (After Monroe’s death, DiMaggio famously sent roses to her grave several times a week for more than three decades, until his own death in 1999.)

10441162_901401986540730_7250257031487377111_n

Monroe attempted to switch to more serious acting roles, studying at the prestigious Actors’ Studio in New York. She earned positive reviews for her more nuanced work in Bus Stop (1956), The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) and particularly Some Like It Hot (1959). By 1961, however, trouble in Monroe’s personal life–her third marriage, to the acclaimed playwright Arthur Miller, dissolved after four years–had led to her increasing emotional fragility, and that year she was admitted on two occasions to hospitals for psychiatric observation and rest. Her final film was The Misfits (1961), written by Miller and co-starring Montgomery Clift and Clark Gable (it would also be Gable’s final appearance on-screen.) In June 1962, Fox dismissed the actress after repeated and extended absences from the set of Something’s Got to Give. On August 5, 1962, Monroe was found dead from an overdose of barbiturates in her home in Brentwood, California. She was 36 years old.

DESTRUCTION WATCH

Demolition Has Begun at Old United Artists Studio in WeHo

Wednesday, April 4, 2012, by Adrian Glick Kudler

Demolition has begun at West Hollywood’s The Lot, the Target-adjacent studio once known as Pickford-Fairbanks, United Artists, and the Samuel Goldwyn Studio.

Developer CIM Group plans to build new offices and soundstages on the property, but that means lights out for several historic buildings, including the 1920s-era Pickford building.

A group of preservationists protested outside The Lot on Sunday, but according to the Save the Pickfair Studios site, “by 10 AM PST the next day the fencing had gone up around the ‘Pickford Building’.” Deconstruction started later that day.

CIM put out a statement on Saturday saying “All buildings designated as historic will remain…CIM is beginning the initial phase of the revitalization of The Lot’s 11-acre site by removing two non-historic buildings and constructing a new 93,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art media office building designed for production and media companies.”

It says that no other part of the six-phase development has been scheduled yet.

According to Save the Pickfair Studios, there are four more “buildings with historical value” on the site.

They also say that a supporter has overnighted an application to put the studio on the California Register of Historical Resources. Here’s a video showing a bit of the studio back in the Pickford-Fairbanks days:

 

PRESERVATIONWATCH

Demo Planned For Parts of WeHo’s Old United Artists Studio

Monday, March 26, 2012, by Adrian Glick Kudler

Image via Google Street View

The former Pickford-Fairbanks Studio/United Artists Studio/Samuel Goldwyn Studio/Warner Hollywood Studio is set for partial demolition, as developer CIM Group preps to majorly expand the lot’s capacity. As you might have guessed by now, the place holds quite a bit of Hollywood history.

The 11 acre lot now known as The Lot sits at Santa Monica and Formosa in West Hollywood, just west of the Target, with a little seepage into the city of LA.

It was originally built in 1919 by silent filmmaker Jesse Hampton, who sold to Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, who eventually teamed up with Charlie Chaplin and DW Griffith to form United Artists. Tenants now say their leases are being allowed to expire and a WeHo planner tells the LA Times that CIM will begin demolition “in a few weeks” for a six-phase project that “will more than double the studio’s space to 671,087 square feet.”

That includes the addition of three new soundstages and buildings up to six stories high. Up for demolition: the 1927 Pickford building, the 1932 Goldwyn building (now used for sound editing), the Writers Building, the Fairbanks Building, the Editorial Building, Frank Sinatra’s old bungalow, “and a block-long row of production offices that line Santa Monica Boulevard.”

The studio has a sign calling it a “Potential Cultural Resource,” which is not actually any kind of binding designation; the LA Conservancy and other preservation groups are now looking into what can be done to save the old studio.

CIM intends to preserve “a wall-like facade that extends along Santa Monica Boulevard around [Howard] Hughes’ secret garage entrance.”

But what about the possibly mythical tunnel that linked up the soundstages to the Formosa Cafe and the “ornate wooden door hand-built by Harrison Ford, who was working as a studio carpenter when he was “discovered” by filmmaker George Lucas”?

Como se deve comentar o novo filme Hobbit que coloca mulher na Terra Média para deixar de ser machista:

08/01/2014

Quando um filme mostra um Presidente da República de antigamente com todos os ministros homens, quem é o machista?

Quem fez o filme? O Presidente da República? Ou os eleitores do Presidente da República que não teriam votado nele se soubessem que ele iria nomear mulheres para o ministério?

EMBORA PAREÇA ÓBVIO A RESPOSTA… Não é:

O público de novela exige que a Globo falsifique a verdade, O público só aceita novela de época na qual os personagens pensem exatamente como nós de 2013.

As Estrelas de Hollywood que faleceram em 2013 – Nossa eterna gratidão

30/12/2013

falecidas

Aquela que era todas as outras em uma…

16/11/2013

 

Freqüentemente me perguntavam quem era meu ídolo
E eu não tinha muita certeza de alguma vez ter tido um.
Mas suponhamos que: sim… bem, então quem?
Bem, ainda na adolescência: Brigitte Bardot… a menina-mulher
E então, um pouco mais tarde: Marilyn Monroe… a sedutora
E então, mais tarde ainda: Jeanne Moreau… a misteriosa
E então: Simone Signoret… a mulher simplesmente
E então: Ingrid Bergman… o ser simplesmente, com tudo que isto significa
E então, várias coisas mais tarde, aí eu mesma já podia ser vista na tela,
eu encontro em um antigo filme mudo (“A Caixa de Pandora”, de G. W. Pabst)
aquela que era todas as outras em uma: Louise Brooks.
Sim, ela é aquela que…
Isto eu percebo à primeira vista.
Dela vem algo tão forte…
Isto me enche de encanto, me fascina, como o forte “Dasein”, o ser-no-mundo das crianças,
que é mais forte do que o nosso estar-aqui…
Isto vem da zona dentro de nós onde a moral ainda não criou raízes,
onde a vida ainda não se esconde atrás da máscara de normas sociais
Isto ainda é pureza no caos.

Através dela, Louise Brooks, pouco importa como ela está vestida,
se toda em branco ou em preto, mostra-se em rara nudez na tela
a criança “finalizada” que se revela mulher.
E todavia nada que afeta essa beleza em sua abnegação.
Talvez também pelo fato de que Louise Brooks se esquiva de olhar para si própria lá em cima na tela.
Certa vez ela disse: “Sentaram-me em uma exibição de meus filmes e eu adormeci.”
Talvez somente assim este sopro de um encanto natural chega até nós de forma tão tranquila.
Ela não quer morder a maçã do auto-conhecimento.

Louise Brooks desistiu do cinema no meio de sua carreira. Por que?
Teria ela se arrependido mais tarde? Ou foi o destino de algo que cedo
ou antecipadamente atingiu seu ápice?
Ou seria isso a “maldição” da beleza, que afasta a bela dos outros,
coloca-a num pedestal ou então sobre uma nuvem distante…

O que há por detrás de tanta beleza?
Qual é o segredo de Louise Brooks?
Diante desse segredo quer-se cair de joelhos…
E ao mesmo tempo mexer nisso.
Sim, as duas coisas eu pensava em fazer, quando Roberto Tricarri me convidou a participar
de sua nova composição para o filme mudo “O Diário de Uma Perdida”… com Louise Brooks.

E como fazê-lo?
Talvez ao invés de uma composição mais ou menos adaptada poderíamos inventar uma espécie de
poema sonoro, talvez em determinados momentos do desenrolar da ação poderíamos enveredar
por um fluxo de consciência mais amplo.

Por exemplo, nos momentos em que Louise Brooks, semi-desmaiada, resvala da estreiteza da realidade
para o nirvana de um paraíso perdido.
Nos momentos em que ela esquece sua situação, em que ela se desfaz de suas vivências como de
uma luva, para de novo encontrar seu eu mais profundo, sem limites, que, penso eu, é igual ao de todos nós.

E nesse fluxo de consciência mais amplo, nossos espíritos poderão então se encontrar,
embora fora do tempo,
mas no interior da mesma escuridão
de uma sala de projeção.

I’ll never change him Lyrics e tradução

Annette Funicello I’ll Never Change Him Beach Blanket Bingo

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

He’ll always be the same, Ele sempre será o mesmo

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

It’s such a foolish game, É um jogo tão bobo

No matter what, what I say, Não importa o que, o que eu diga

I know he’ll always have his way, Eu sei que ele sempre seguirá do jeito dele

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

It’s plain as it can be, É tão simples quanto pode ser

I’ll never change him, Eu nunca o mudarei

Meio Século de Saudade – 50 anos que MM Marilyn Monroe vive nas nossas Lembranças

04/08/2012

=

=

NOTICIARIO DA  EPOCA:

=

=

Marilyn, su memoria, sigue muy viva en el país que la vio nacer, justo en la jornada en la que se cumplen 50 años de su muerte en su casa de Brentwood, en Los Ángeles. Según la revista Forbes es el tercer famoso fallecido que más dinero sigue generando en Estados Unidos, por debajo solo de Michael Jackson y Elvis Presley. En total, todo aquello que Marilyn dejó atrás —su imagen, eminentemente— crea al año 27 millones de dólares. La actriz tiene también una cuenta en la red social de Twitter, dedicada a su memoria, en la que la siguen 54.000 personas, y una página de Facebook con más de 3,3 millones de seguidores.

Marilyn no es solo una actriz que participó en una treintena de películas y murió joven, a los 36. Es un icono, y aún más que eso, dada la facilidad en la que el mundo fabrica iconos a día de hoy. Es fuente inagotable de reposiciones de filmes antiguos en filmotecas y canales de televisión. Es una estatua gigante que ha saludado a Chicago durante meses y que recientemente ha sido trasladada a Palm Springs. Es un mural gigantesco que mira, melancólico, sobre Adams Morgan, uno de los barrios más vibrantes de Washington. Es también el obsesivo objeto de una exitosa serie de televisión norteamericana, Smash, donde jóvenes actrices aspiran a interpretarla. Y es, finalmente, el propósito de numerosas exposiciones que muestran sus fotografías y sus vestidos, todas sus reliquias.

Marilyn Monroe, actriz insatisfecha por la fama, amiga de presidentes, esposa de estrellas del deporte y dramaturgos, tiene incluso su propio fichero, ya algo polvoriento, en uno de los cuartos del FBI. La mayoría de sus páginas están al alcance de cualquiera, en Internet. Son 97 páginas. Un informe sobre cómo la actriz pidió un visado para la URSS en 1955. Un encuentro con miembros del Grupo Comunista Americano en México en 1962. Detalles minuciosos de sus encuentros con el presidente John F. Kennedy, como una cena en Nueva York en la que le “hizo una serie de preguntas socialmente significativas sobre la moralidad de las pruebas atómicas”. Puro macartismo.

Hay algo que falta, sin embargo, en ese archivo tan minucioso, seguramente revisado por el jefe del FBI, Edgar J. Hoover, personal y compulsivamente. Son otros documentos de muchos otros días de vida de Marilyn, incluidas aquellas lúgubres jornadas de agosto de 1962 previas a su muerte, desaparecidas de los legajos de anodinos informes de los agentes del FBI.

La agencia Associated Press pidió al Gobierno de EE UU, a través de la Ley de Libertad Informativa, que revelara esos reportes para este 50 aniversario de su muerte. La respuesta del FBI y de los Archivos Nacionales de EE UU: “No podemos encontrar los archivos”. Perdidos, parece, sin más explicación. El Gobierno ha abierto una investigación.

Ya hubo dos investigaciones tras la muerte de Marilyn. La primigenia la condujo la fiscalía pertinente tras su muerte. Probable suicidio. La segunda, abierta en 1982, la dirigió el Fiscal de Distrito de Los Ángeles, dadas las persistentes dudas sobre las condiciones de su fallecimiento. En 1973, de hecho, su amigo Norman Mailer había publicado una enjundiosa biografía en la que sugería que Marilyn no se habían suicidado, sino que la habían asesinado, una tapadera. ¿Había muerto realmente por una sobredosis de hidrato de cloral y pentobarbital? ¿A quién había llamado antes de fallecer? Ninguna de las dos investigaciones ofreció resultados convincentes, más allá de la conclusión original de que se trató de una muerte autoinflingida.

Seguidores suyos, jóvenes y ancianos, depositarán flores frente a su tumba, un pequeño nicho en el cementerio Westwood Memorial Park de Los Ángeles, donde también descansan Natalie Wood, Jack Lemon, Walter Matthau, Eva Gabor y Truman Capote, viejos recuerdos de un Hollywood en blanco y negro o en tecnicolor. Una reproducción de la célebre portada de Playboy en la que apareció Marilyn, entonces joven y pelirroja, firmada por Hugh Hefner, presidirá el servicio y será subastada, a beneficio de asociaciones de ayuda a huérfanos y niños maltratados.

Sempre sentiremos sua falta Ernest Borgnine até a Eternidade

08/07/2012

Ernest Borgnine: 1917-2012

Borgnine, the rugged, stocky actor with a brassy voice and the face of the local butcher, died today in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of renal failure. He was 95.

Borgnine was known for playing characters both brutal and gentle. On the brutal side was the cruel Sgt. “Fatso” Judson in From Here to Eternity, Coley Trimble, the right-hand goon in Bad Day at Black Rock, Dutch Engstrom, in the enduring classic The Wild Bunch and Shack, the train bull after Lee Marvin in Emperor of the North.

On the gentle side he was known as the love-lorn Marty in the 1955 film of the same name (for which he earned an Oscar for Best Actor), Lt. Commander Quinton McHale from “McHale’s Navy,” Rogo, the cop with the prostitute-wife in The Poseidon Adventure and, to a whole new generation, as the voice of the starfish-donning, geriatric Mermaid Man on “SpongeBob SquarePants.

A first generation American Ernest Borgnine was born Ermes Effron Borgnino on January 24, 1917, in Hamden, Connecticut. His father was Camillo (later Charles) Borgnino of Ottiglio, in northern Italy and his mother was Anna Bosselli, from Carpi, Italy.

Borgnine showed no real interest in acting until well after a ten-year stint in the Navy. He was 32 when his mother suggested that he become an actor, observing “you like to make a fool of yourself in front of other people” so Ernie enrolled in the Randall School of Drama in Hartford and then moved to Abingdon, Virginia for Robert Porterfield’s famous Barter Theatre.

Times were lean for Borgnine. He had married for the first time and moved from the Barter to New York, quickly getting noticed for his role as a male nurse in a Broadway production of “Harvey” but he soon moved back to the Barter school again.

He then returned to New York but the nascent medium of television, not the stage, sustained him for a while. Borgnine prided himself on not being picky. His original TV work included a stint in the action serial “Captain Video and His Video Rangers.” He was noticed by Delbert Mann, himself a budding director, who encouraged Borgnine and gave him small roles.

Borgnine’s true break came when he moved to Los Angeles and landed the role of Sergeant “Fatso” Judson in Eternity, a smash hit that, in addition to launching Borgnine’s helped reinvigorate numerous careers including Frank Sinatra‘s and Deborah Kerr‘s.

He played the bad guy again, though one of the goons this time, in Johnny Guitar. Borgnine then parlayed his new-found notoriety with the lead in a screenplay written by Paddy Chayefsky, that of Marty, in the film of the same name, slated to be directed by his mentor, Delbert Mann.

The story was about an underdog named Marty, a self-avowed ugly man, who has to evolve beyond his dedication to his overbearing mother and his bonds with his best friend, when he falls in love with Clara, a woman who is also unpopular and unattractive, played by Betsy Blair.

Marty was a surprise hit, was nominated for eight Oscars (including Best Picture and Best Director for Mann) and won four, including Borgnine’s unexpected win over a very crowded field which included his co-star in Bad Day at Black Rock,Spencer Tracy, and a posthumous nod to James Dean (who had died the previous September in a car crash) for his role in East of Eden.

The Oscar helped keep the actor in the game and the next seven years included a mix of TV and film work including A Catered Affair, Jubal, The Vikings and various “Playhouse” appearances on the small screen.

1962 brought “McHale’s Navy,” with Borgnine assaying the role of Lt. Commander Quinton McHale, the put-upon chief of PT boat 73. The cast included Joe Flynn and Tim Conway (Conway would, 35 years later, team up again with Borgnine as the voice of Mermaid Man’s sidekick, Barnacle Boy, on “SpongeBob SquarePants“). “McHale’s” had a healthy following for four years.

Borgnine had a mid-life Renaissance in the late ’60s and early ’70s. He played a small but pivotal role in The Dirty Dozen, was Boris Vaslov in Ice Station Zebra and was Dutch Engstrom, the taciturn but decisive bandit throwing in with Sam Peckinpah‘s Wild Bunch. He also joined the capsized cast of The Poseidon Adventure, played Shack, the train bull in The Emperor of the North Pole and was the simple-minded but helpful Cabbie in Escape from New York.

Borgnine was married five times. His second marriage was to the fiery actress Katy Jurado. It began in 1959 but was over four years later. Reports differ on when he met his third wife, Ethel Merman. She claimed it was in November of 1963, the same month that he was finalizing his divorce to Jurado. He insisted it wasn’t until the next spring. Regardless they were married on June 24th, the following year. It lasted less than a month.  In her autobiography entitled “Merman,” the actress intimated that Borgnine was abusive stating, “I just feel lucky to have been able to ‘walk’ away from the marriage.” She devoted an entire chapter, the twenty-eighth, to their union. Entitled “My Marriage to Ernest Borgnine” it consisted of one blank page.

His last marriage, to Tova Traesnaes, a cosmetic and skin-care product entrepreneur, lasted over 35 years and until his death. Borgnine had four children: Gina Kemins-Borgnine, the child from his first marriage to Rhoda Kemins, and three from his fourth wife, Donna Rancourt, named Diana Rancourt-Borgnine (born December 29th 1970), Sharon (born 1965) and Cristofer (born 1969). Oddly, in his autobiography, “Ernie” Bornine only acknowledged the first three children, dropping Diana out entirely.- Keith Simanton

A fraude chamada Charles Spencer Chaplin

MI5 files: Was Chaplin really a Frenchman and called Thornstein?

MI5 investigated whether Charlie Chaplin was actually a Frenchman called Israel Thornstein, previously secret files on the Hollywood film star have revealed.

12:01AM GMT 17 Feb 2012

Intelligence officers could find no trace of the actor’s birth in Britain despite Chaplin always claiming he was born in London in 1889.

The mystery surrounding his origins emerged when the US authorities asked MI5 to look into the comic actor’s background after he left America in 1952 under a cloud of suspicion over his communist links.

But British officers could find no birth certificate and the earliest official record was a passport issued in 1920.

They investigated suggestions he was born in Fontainebleau, near Paris, or nearby Melun, while the Americans claimed his real name was Israel Thornstein and raised the idea he may have been a Russian Jew.

Despite extensive searches, MI5 could find no evidence of any of the claims leaving his true origins a mystery to this day.

However, British intelligence rejected American claims that Chaplin was a high-risk communist, concluding that while he may have been a “sympathiser” he was no more than a “progressive or radical”.

Agents here accepted his name had “been exploited in the interests of communism as one of the victims of ‘McCarthyism’ – the US anti-communist campaign led by Senator Joe McCarthy – but said he was not a security risk.

It is the first time the files kept by MI5 on Chaplin have been made public and show the extent to which agents went in checking his background.

The star said he was born on April 16 1889 in East Street, Walworth, south London – just four days before the birth of Adolf Hitler, whom he lampooned in his classic 1940 film The Great Dictator.

But after scouring the files at Somerset House in London for his birth certificate, MI5 concluded: “It would seem that Chaplin was either not born in this country or that his name at birth was other than those mentioned.”

Scotland Yard’s Special Branch added to the intrigue by passing on a tip from a source who claimed the actor was born near Fontainebleau, just south of Paris.

The police memo said: “There may or may not be some truth in this, but in view of the fact that no documentary proof has been obtained that Chaplin was born in the United Kingdom, it may well be that he was in fact born in France.”

MI6, Britain’s foreign intelligence service, investigated further but found no trace of Chaplin’s birth in France either.

John Marriott, then head of MI5’s counter-subversion branch, was not convinced that the absence of a birth certificate was a matter of concern for the intelligence services.

He wrote: “It is curious that we can find no record of Chaplin’s birth, but I scarcely think that this is of any security significance.”

One possible answer to the mystery emerged last year when Chaplin’s family found a letter in a locked drawer suggesting he had been born on a gipsy camp in Smethwick, near Birmingham.

Chaplin became one of Hollywood’s first megastars with his shabby, bowler-hatted everyman persona, the Little Tramp

The note was sent to the star in the early 1970s from Jack Hill who said his own aunt was a Gypsy Queen and he had been born in her caravan.

It is known Chaplin’s mother Hannah had the maiden name Hill and descended from travellers.

Having escaped grinding poverty to launch a career in British music-hall, Chaplin moved to the US in 1910 and made a series of hugely successful films in Hollywood in his famous persona of the “Little Tramp”.

But in the early 1950s, when Washington was in the grip of McCarthyist paranoia about Soviet infiltration, he was reviled in the US as a communist sympathiser.

There was further controversy about his two marriages to 16-year-old girls, failure to take American citizenship, and claims he fathered an illegitimate child and owed 2 million dollars in back taxes.

Chaplin and his family sailed to Britain in September 1952 to attend the premiere of his new film Limelight.

While they were out of the country, US Attorney General James McGranery announced he would deny the actor a re-entry permit because of his alleged Soviet connections.

Chaplin’s MI5 files, released by the National Archives in Kew, west London, show agents here agreed that he had given funds to communist front organisations but that the US could not prove party membership.

And a note sent to the MI5’s East Africa liaison officer ahead of a safari holiday Chaplin took in Kenya in February-March 1958 shows that MI5 were unimpressed by Washington’s claims of communist links, which “do not impress us”.

It stated: “We have no substantial information of our own against Chaplin, and we are not satisfied that there are reliable grounds for regarding him as a security risk.

“His name has, of course, been exploited in the interests of communism as one of the victims of ‘McCarthyism’ …

“It may be that Chaplin is a communist sympathiser, but on the information before us he would appear to be no more than a ‘progressive’ or radical.”

Files released by The National Archives in 2002 showed that the British Government blocked Chaplin’s knighthood for nearly 20 years because of US concern about his colourful private life and political affiliations.

He was eventually knighted in March 1975 and died at his home in Switzerland on Christmas Day 1977, aged 88.

Chaplin’s origins remain shrouded in mystery more than 120 years after his birth [GALLO/GETTY]

British agents who investigated Charlie Chaplin over US suspicions that he was a communist sympathiser could find no record of the silent film star’s birth or real identity, newly declassified files have revealed.

The UK’s MI5 security agency launched an investigation into Chaplin in 1952 following a request from the FBI, which believed Chaplin was using an alias and that his real name was Israel Thornstein, according to the documents released by the UK’s national archive on Friday.

The case came at the height of US paranoia over Soviet infiltration. US authorities had suspected Chaplin of being a communist since the height of his fame in the 1920s.

During his long career, Chaplin courted controversy with political films such as “The Great Dictator” a parody of German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and “A King in New York”, a satire on the anti-communist Cold War fears gripping America.

While Chaplin said he had been born in London in 1889, British agents could find no record of his claim, but also concluded that he did not pose a security threat, according to the files.

“We can find no evidence that Chaplin’s name is or ever has been Israel Thornstein, nor can we find any evidence of the existence of such a person,” MI5 said in a letter to the U.S. Embassy in London.

“We have, however, been unable to discover any other name by which he has been known.”

‘Going back to Russia’

Elsewhere in the file, agents speculated that Chaplin might have had Russian roots. There was an allegation that he had once spoken of “going back to Russia”.

“This might refer to paying another visit, or it might denote his origin as Russia,” noted a senior MI5 officer, speculating that Chaplin might have come from a Jewish family fleeing pogroms at the end of the 19th century.

But British officials seemed content to let the mystery of Chaplin’s birth remain.

British agents were sceptical of US claims that the star was a communist threat, with John Marriott, the head of MI5’s counter-subversion branch, calling the allegations “unreliable”.

“It is curious that we can find no record of Chaplin’s birth, but I scarcely think that this is of any security significance,” he wrote in 1952.

Chaplin was refused re-entry to the United States in 1952. He settled in Switzerland and lived there until his death in 1977.

Grande Doris Day, 87 anos

Doris Day Wins Lifetime Achievement Award from L.A. Film Critics

By Steve Pond

Doris Day has been named recipient of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association’s 2011 Career Achievement Award, the critics group announced on Saturday.

Doris Day

“Decades on from the main body of her work, Doris Day is still arguably the template to which Hollywood turns when trying to quantify and capture ‘girl-next-door’ appeal,” said LAFCA president Brent Simon in a release announcing the honor.

“Equally at home in snappish romantic comedies and more dramatic fare, Day was the biggest female star of the 1960s, giving a series of delightfully perceptive performances.”

Day’s has often been a subject of speculation when the Academy meets to choose its honorary Oscar winners, though she has a long-running and well-known reluctance to attend ceremonies.

The association also announced that it will vote for the winners of its 2011 awards on Sunday, Dec. 11. While the New York Film Critics Circle, which usually chooses its winners the day after the Los Angeles critics, decided to move its voting into November, LAFCA opted not to change its voting date.

From the LAFCA press release:

“Still one of the top box office performers of all time, Doris Day starred onscreen alongside some of the biggest male stars of her day, including Clark Gable, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, David Niven and of course Rock Hudson. Her screen credits include ‘Calamity Jane,’ ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much,’ ‘The Tunnel of Love,’ ‘Pillow Talk,’ ‘Lover Come Back’ and ‘That Touch of Mink.’ Her career as a singer was just as impressive; indeed, Day received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2008. She released more than two dozen albums, experiencing Billboard chart success and in 1957 winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song for ‘Que Sera Sera,’ which would become her signature tune. A passionate animal rights activist for several decades, Day just this year released an album of jazz standards and cover tunes produced by her late son, Terry Melcher, her first new material in more than four decades.

“Founded in 1975, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) is comprised of Los Angeles-based, professional film critics working in the Los Angeles print and electronic media.  Each December, LAFCA members vote on the year’s Achievement Awards, honoring screen excellence on both sides of the camera. Plaques of recognition are then presented to winners during LAFCA’s annual awards ceremony, held in mid-January.

“Aside from honoring each year’s outstanding cinematic achievements, LAFCA has also makes a point to look back and pay tribute to distinguished industry veterans with its annual Career Achievement Award, which is announced in October, as well as to look forward by spotlighting fresh, promising talent with its annual New Generation Award.  In addition, over the past three decades, LAFCA has sponsored and hosted numerous film panels and events and donated funds to various Los Angeles film organizations, especially where film preservation was concerned.

==

Doris Day was born in Cincinnati to German Catholic parents. She had two brothers, Richard, who died before she was born and Paul, a few years older. Her father and mother divorced when she was about ten. At fourteen, she formed a dance act with a boy, Jerry Doherty, and they won $500 in a local talent contest… See full bio »

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/8034627/The-Flintstones-50th-anniversary-15-things-you-dont-know.html

Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.
They’re the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They’re a page right out of history.

Let’s ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred’s two feet.

When you’re with the Flintstones
you’ll have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
You’ll have a gay old time.

The Flintstones' 50th anniversary: Google celebrates with a Doodle

1) The Flintstones was originally aimed at an adult audience and the first two seasons were co-sponsored by Winston cigarettes. But by the third season it was being written for children and was sponsored by Welch’s, who produced grape juice and jellies.

 2) The show’s famous theme tune, “Meet The Flintstones”, was not used until the third series. The musical theme for the first two seasons was called “Rise and Shine”.

3) Fred and Wilma Flintstone were the first couple to be shown in bed together on prime-time television when the show first aired on ABC between 1960 and 1966.

4) Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble fronted a TV advertising campaign for Wintston cigarettes – a move that would be unthinkable for children’s television characters today.

5) Many critics believe that the show was a Stone Age parody of the 1950s US TV sitcom, The Honeymooners, which featured two newlywed couples living in New York. One of the show’s creators, William Hanna, once confirmed the rumour, but his co-creator Joseph Barbera maintained that it was a myth.

6) William Hanna, the co-creator of The Flintstones, also produced the hit children’s TV shows Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo and Yo Yogi.

7) The Flintstones held the coveted title of the longest-running prime-time TV cartoon before The Simpsons took on the mantel.

8- The 1959 unaired pilot episode was called “The Flagstones”. “The Gladstones” was also mooted before The Flintstones was finally decided on.

9) The series was set in the town of Bedrock, although in some early episodes it was referred to as Rockville.

10) The furniture in the Flintstones’ house changed in almost every episode.

11) The family’s barking pet dinosaur, Dino, changed colours throughout the programme. Its main colour was purple.

12) The cartoon was originally aired in black and white.

13) The Flintstones was home to several major-league sports teams. The Bedrock Giants, Bedrock Dodgers and the Green Bay Pachyderms all appeared on the show.

14) Several popular celebrities took residence in the showbiz quarter of Bedrock – Hollyrock.Cary Granite, Alvin Brickrock and Stony Curtis were the biggest stars. Mick Jadestone and the Rolling Boulders were Fred and Barney’s favourite band.

15) There are several Flintstones theme parks in the US, including Flintstones Bedrock City in South Dakota and Flintstones Bedrock Town in Arizona.

From the dino-crane to the lobster lawn mower, the Stone Age town of Bedrock is packed with prehistoric contraptions.

The best of the bunch are showcased in one episode when the Flintstone family and their friends, the Rubbles, pay a visit to an exhibition of Wacky Inventions.

There they meet Professor Einstone, a scientist who has spent years holed up in his laboratory working on a series of contraptions that he hopes will revolutionise prehistoric life.

But Fred and Barney shatter his illusions by showing him a video of life in Bedrock, where all his inventions have already been dreamed up by someone else. Here are 10 of the wackiest contraptions they show him.

Fred’s pedal car

The wheels on Fred’s car are replaced by cylindrical bounders held together by treetrunks, and the vehicle is propelled by the driver’s feet. A canopy strung together by twigs shelters the passengers from rain. Fred tells the Professor that he drives his car on the “Tyrannosaurus Rexpressway” which is “It’s bumper-to-bumper at rush hour”.

The Bedrock Express

The Flintstones show Professor Einstone a film of the Bedrock train service – whose rock carriages are drawn along by a dinosaur. “I don’t mean to derail you Professor, but we call that a train,” says Wilma. “I think I’m on the right track now Mrs Flintstone,” he replies.

The dino-crane

Fred explains how his job in the quarry is made much easier by the dino-crane. He sits astride the dinosaur, who clamps the rocks between its jaws, and hauls the cargo up using a rope attached to the creature’s neck. “But Fred, that dinosaur seems to be the brains of the operation,” says the Professor.

The elephant water cooler

Fred longs to leave the quarry for the relative luxury of an office job. He dreams of drinking from the water cooler – in this case an elephant perched on an ice-box which squirts ice water out of its trunk. He also imagines the thrill of using an intercom – a parrot which flies through a rock pipe connecting two offices delivering messages.

The elephant tap

Betty and Wilma tell the Professor that they don’t have time to get jobs of their own because they are too busy being “domestic engineers”. They show him the sink where they wash the dishes at home – complete with a state-of the-art elephant water tap. “Sheesh, you girls make it sound like housework is tough,” says Fred. “What about all those great gadgets you got to help ya?”

The elephant vacuum cleaner

The Professor is shown the latest household mod con – the elephant vacuum cleaner. This contraption is comprised of a small elephant perched on a trolley, hoovering the carpet with its trunk. The only hitch is that the animal is prone to sneezing, thus undoing all its own good work.

The warthog garbage grinder

Fred and Barney proudly show the professor their state-of-the-art garbage grinder. Rubbish thrown down the trash shoot is gobbled up by the warthog waiting below. “Incredible. Housework certainly does seem a lot easier these days,” says the Professor.

The octopus dishwasher

Betty and Wilma are delighted with their Octopus dishwasher, which washes and dries eight dishes at a time using its tentacles. “So you see professor. With all these wacky inventions, housework is easy” says Fred.

The lobster lawn mower

The men are determined to prove that their chores are the hardest. “Oh come on professor,” says Barney. “Everyone knows that the toughest work around the house ain’t inside. Its outside”. To illustrate, he shows off his brand new lawnmower – a lobster on a trolley attached to a pole that clips the grass with its pincers as he pushes it along.

The bird-powered cinematograph

The Stone Age film projector on which the wacky inventions are shown is powered by a small bird that runs on a cog to spin the reels.
