This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...

9 Oralsex-Tipps, für die dir deine Vulva dankbar sein wird

Vor ein paar Jahren veröffentlichte das Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality , die niemanden wirklich schockierte: Es stellt sich raus, dass Frauen ihre Partner:innen deutlich häufiger oral befriedigen als Männer. Manche nennen das den „Oral Sex Gap“ (z. Dt.: „Oralsex-Lücke“) – aber ganz egal, wie du es nennen willst: Tatsache ist, dass Frauen (zumindest die, die mit Männern Sex haben) seltener oral verwöhnt werden, weil Männer a) es seltener anbieten und b) Frauen seltener darum bitten. Einige...

12 Movies Like Superbad That Comedy Fans Need To Watch

"Superbad" is one of the most influential comedies of the 21st century — or, at the very least, one of the raunchiest. Screenwriters Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg based the film's wild situations on stories from their own childhood, and worked with director Greg Mottola to craft a new teen comedy classic worthy of the high school movie hall of fame.Released by Judd Apatow's The Apatow Company, "Superbad" launched successful new stars who would go on to appear frequently in Apatow productions.

No Time To Die Director Cary Fukunaga On Giving Daniel Craig's James Bond A Proper Ending [Interview]

There are a lot of firsts happening in and around "No Time To Die," the 25th official James Bond film. Billed insistently and loudly as Daniel Craig's final adventure as 007, the film itself contains moments and flourishes never before depicted in the series' 59-year history, and those choices will fuel years of fan debate.But one of the more low-key yet seismic firsts happened behind the camera: Cary Joji Fukunaga is the first American to direct an Eon-produced Bond film. A bold move for a fran...

13 Tarantino Projects We Never Saw But Wish We Could've

Quentin Tarantino is one of the most influential American filmmakers of all time. In the three decades that Tarantino has been making films, he has inspired countless imitators, but few have had the impact he has -- Tarantino's 1992 directorial debut "Reservoir Dogs" literally changed the state of independent cinema. At the time, it was rare for a self-financed film to reach mainstream audiences, but following an energetic response at the Sundance Film Festival, "Reservoir Dogs" was acquired by ...

How to Make James Bond Scrambled Eggs

In addition to being a cold, effective secret agent, the James Bond of Ian Fleming’s novels is also something of, well, a foodie. Over the course of the book series (you can find the series’ five best installments here) Fleming describes, often in sumptuous detail, seventy of 007’s meals. Bond noshes on crab, samples caviar, and sips champagne with relish, but with the lack of affectation and air of indifference with which he goes about all activities. His knowledge of food is part of his savoi...

Afghan businesses face a tough future under the Taliban as cash dries up and an economic crisis looms, says the country's ex-central bank chief

An Afghan black-market money changer waiting for customers in Sarai Shahzada market in Kabul last week. Wali Sabawoon/AP Photo The future of Afghanistan's local economy looks uncertain, according to its ex-central bank chief. The Taliban "had sufficient revenues to run an insurgency," not a government, said Ajmal Ahmady. Local businesses could be hit as inflation grows and cash dries up.

1999’s She’s All That Featured a Surprising Amount of Talent

I missed out on She’s All That when it was released way back in 1999 — 22 years ago! — but was very much aware of the film and the impact it had on my close group of high school friends. And while its Cinderella-inspired plot device — a “jock” falls for a “nerdy-because-she-wears-glasses” girl from another click — remains just as cheesy today as it did in the late ’90s, after watching the flick earlier this week, I get the appeal and understand how this rather routine comedy grossed over $100 mi...

LA’s Music Box Steps: a scenic climb, but leave your piano at home

If a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing right. The always proper Oliver Hardy might say the same thing about the task at hand, right before completely botching it. A similar impulse led me back to the Music Box Steps in L.A. Those are the famous stairs that are the setting of one of Laurel and Hardy’s most beloved films, “The Music Box.” Less than two weeks earlier, I had done the 2-mile loop from the urban walking guide “Secret Stairs” that includes the famous stairs, with author Charles Flem...

The 15 Best Spy Movies Of All Time

In a 1956 letter to noir legend Raymond Chandler, Ian Fleming referred to his James Bond novels as "pillow fantasies of the bang-bang, kiss-kiss variety." The phrase would eventually be turned around and immortalized as hepcat slang for spy cinema around the world. The business of kiss kiss, bang bang has been booming ever since. Fleming's creation for Queen and Country is now the second-longest running franchise in film history. "Mission: Impossible" has been playing in theaters longer than it ...

Why Martin Campbell Didn’t Return to Direct Any Bond Sequels

Martin Campbell breathed fresh life into the Bond franchise twice. With Goldeneye and Casino Royale, he kicked off two new chapters in the long-running franchise to great success. The filmmaker made the character vital again, both for audiences in the ’90s and the 21st Century. While the sequels with Pierce Brosnan drastically departed from the tone Campbell established, there are still echoes of the filmmaker’s work in the most recent Daniel Craig-led films. But he never came back to the serie...

Secret stairs in LA a good fit for urban explorers

The pandemic had some people climbing the walls. Me, I climbed stairs. Of the 42 walks in “Secret Stairs: A Walking Guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angeles,” it had taken me 10 years to accomplish just under half of them. Over the past year, with my weekends suddenly cleared of social or cultural engagements, I zoomed through the rest, as well as an equal number in the related book “Walking L.A.” The self-guided, roughly one-hour “Secret Stairs” walks, largely around Echo Park, Silver La...
