Piero Poletto’s groovy-futuristic production design for THE 10th VICTIM is able to bring pop art sensibilities that co-exist with the historic architecture of Rome. Whether it's for the use of color against stark backdrops, predicting elite rooftop bars or set details & patterns that are designed to offset the wardrobe of Ursula Andress as she plays a cat and mouse game with Marcello Mastroianni, you'll want to catch this 60s classic on the big screen for optimal appreciation. Tomorrow at the Egyptian! https://www.facebook.com/events/2296717663875675/

So many good reasons to see tonight's screening- actress Jenny Runacre in person, introducing Cassavetes' HUSBANDS (she is kind enough to zoom up to Hollywood after giving an earlier intro to THE CANTERBURY TALES at the Aero). Something good between films of our double feature, after already having the chance to see producer Irwin Winkler Introduce GOODFELLAS! https://www.facebook.com/events/1998306560278526/

This Sunday La OLA will honor the memory and work of the Spanish artist Iván Zulueta on the tenth year anniversary of his passing by premiering in Los Angeles his masterpiece ARREBATO (RAPTURE 1979). This groundbreaking mysterious feature film, shot exactly 40 years ago, didn’t find commercial success but became a cult movie that inspired and haunted an entire generation of Spanish Cinephiles and filmmakers.
The program includes the screening of the short film LEO ES PARDO (1976, 10 min.), an exploration of a complex world of dualities that would later lead to ARREBATO’s universe.
Sunday 5/19, Spielberg Theater at the Egyptian, 7:30pm. Screening supported by @spainculture.us and co-presented by @sidgrauman The American Cinematheque. #Repost @laola_showcase with @get_repost

A little background on one of the silent film stars of Retroformat Silent Films Los Angeles' Saturday, May 18th program at the Egyptian Theatre.

KARL DANE was born Rasmus Karl Therkelsen Gottlieb in Copenhagen, Denmark on October 12, 1886. He survived an unhappy childhood with an alcoholic father, who worked as a curtain puller in a local theater. At a young age, he became interested in the arts, including acting and puppeteering, which was very popular in Denmark at that time.

At age 21, he began compulsory military service and was promoted to lance corporal in 1908. He was recalled to duty with the outbreak of World War I and was promoted to corporal in 1915.

In 1916, Karl emigrated to the United States, arriving at Ellis Island in February 1916. He eventually found work as an auto mechanic in Lincoln, Nebraska and later in New York City.

He made his film début for Vitagraph Studios in 1917 in a bit part filmed in Fort Lee, New Jersey. With the U.S. joining World War I, he soon began getting parts as a heavy in anti-German propaganda films like TO HELL WITH THE KAISER! and the serial WOLVES OF KULTUR.

His greatest success came in the 1920s, when he was cast by director King Vidor in THE BIG PARADE, and he began appearing regularly in comic relief roles in major features. With the coming of sound, his parts started becoming smaller. His final film appearance was in the serial THE WHISPERING SHADOW starring Bela Lugosi, ending his career with an excellent though little-known performance.

In the early thirties, no longer able to get film roles, he lost his money in mining investments, then went from one menial job to another. For a time he owned a hot dog stand, although it was not in front of the MGM studio gates, as claimed by Kenneth Anger in HOLLYWOOD BABYLON. Broke and depressed, he died from a self-inflict gunshot wound in 1934.

He was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. His notoriety has increased in recent years, with the release of some of his best films on DVD, including THE BIG PARADE, SON OF THE SHEIK, BARDLEYS THE MAGNIFICENT and THE WHISPERING SHADOW. In 2008, the Danish Film Institute held a retrospective of his work in Copenhagen.

Don’t miss Karl Dane in WOLVES OF KULTUR, Episodes 2 and 3, part of THE HIDDEN VOICE AND MORE SILENT SERIAL ADVENTURES, with live accompaniment by CLIFF RETALLICK, this Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the Spielberg Screening Room of Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California. Tickets are available now at https://www.fandango.com/the-hidden-voice-an…/movie-overview

My heart is shattered. Doris Day (1922-2019) has passed away following a bout of pneumonia at the age of 97. I am so so so grateful for her films, her music, and her animal advocacy...what joy she has brought to countless lives, both human and animal. I knew she couldn’t live forever, but I still never wanted this day to come. Many prayers for her friends, family, and fans...may she forever RIP 😞🙏🏼💖 #dorisday #rip #gonebutnotforgotten #gonebutneverforgotten #oldhollywood #classichollywood #vintagehollywood #classicactress #vintageactress #oldhollywoodactress #classicsinger #vintagesinger #animaladvocate #theydontmakeemlikethatanymore #egyptiantheatrehistory #pillowtalk

Before those irritating, f**king Bird scooters. Before Lyft. There was Taxi Driver. Travis Bickle, the last man with a conscience in New York City, an avenging angel and saint to folks in Pittsburgh. Reminds Betsy of Kris Kristofferson. And he's organiz-ized.

Scorsese-Cassavetes Double Feature! Director Martin Scorsese's 1976 "savage, many-headed dragon of the American New Wave" (Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice) is still as potent as ever. Cabbie Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro's seminal pistol-packing, insomniac loner) drives through the open sewer that is mid-1970s Manhattan with its pimps (Harvey Keitel), hookers (Jodie Foster), politicos (Cybill Shepherd and Albert Brooks) and other scummy creatures of the neon wilderness. With a ferocious script by Paul Schrader. Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel play the title roles in offbeat romance MINNIE AND MOSKOWITZ. #taxidriver #martinscorsese #travisbickle #jodiefoster #cybilshepherd #albertbrooks #1970sfilm #1970smanhattan
