You’ll believe an elephant can fly with the latest Dumbo sneak peek released by Disney. The House of Mouse dropped a new sneak peek for the live-action remake directed by Tim Burton. And aside from giving us some new soaring shots of the titular floppy-eared elephant flying high, there are even more delightful glimpses of the star-studded cast including Danny Devito, Colin Farrell, Eva Green, and a very excited Michael Keaton. Dumbo Sneak Peek “He’s making me a child again!” Keaton’s V....

Joseph Gatt on How His ‘Dumbo’ Villain is the Darth Vader to Michael Keaton’s Emperor [Set Visit Interview]

Joseph Gatt is used to playing the bad guy. With his striking chrome dome, high cheekbones, and thin eyebrows, it’s no wonder that Gatt has been typecast as a villain. He’s tried to kill Thor as a Frost Giant, and he’s terrorized various heroes as countless Russian mercenaries. But in Dumbo, his villain Neils Skellig (the psychotic hunter and right-hand man of Michael Keaton’s ruthless circus entrepreneur V.A. Vandemere) hits a little closer to home. “I’m very anti-hunting and I’m involved in a...

Harold Lloyd matriculated to Ontario for ‘The Freshman’

Ninety-five years ago this year, one of the world’s biggest movie stars came to Ontario. Harold Lloyd was here in 1924 to film scenes at the Southern Pacific Depot for “The Freshman,” in which he played naive college freshman Harold Lamb. A crew of 80 filmed at the station and on nearby streets in the downtown core. The visit “threw considerable stir into the affairs of Ontario,” the Daily Report wrote, as “plenty of Ontario spectators” gawked at the filming. In “The Freshman,” Harold Lamb is a ...

The History of the Quirky Music Typewriter: Vintage Technologies for Printing Musical Notation

Nothing could seem more ordinary to anyone who has grown up with a musician in the house, or taken music classes themselves, than sheaves of sheet music: quarter, half, and whole notes tripping through orderly staffs in chords, arpeggios, and melodies. But the process of making those sheets of music is probably far less familiar to most of us. Music printing history, as the site Music Printing History shows, parallels book printing, but uses the technologies differently, from woodblock t...

The Art of Creating Special Effects in Silent Movies: Ingenuity Before the Age of CGI

If anyone tries to claim that modern day movies have too many special effects remind them of this. Films have always used special effects to trick the audience, and we’re just using new variations of tools from a century ago. In fact, right from the beginning, creators like Georges Méliès were pushing the boundaries of celluloid and 24 frames per second like the showmen and magicians they were. By the time we get to the silent comedians as seen in our above video, technology had advanced...

"Well, now, there’s Buster Keaton. I thought he was visually thrilling, and very sophisticated: more about women than about men. He lets you read a lot into things."

"You’re left with so much to decide. And then there was a woman in Santa Ana, an incredible woman, an artist. She was mysterious. She loved a lot of things that weren’t yet open to me. And then, gosh, a woman I met once when I was looking for an apartment who claimed that her husband had invented the tea bag. . . Well. And then my family. We’re very close to each other. My sister Dorrie looks like an Eskimo. And then Woody, of course."So said Diane Keaton, in 1978, when The New Yorker's Penelope...

Setting the Scene with Sound: (Re)Scoring Silent Film

We all know that the soundtrack changes the way we experience a movie. One of my favorite examples of this comes from a meme that appeared about ten years ago in which participants recut classic films into new trailers in different genres. West Side Story, a tragic musical (original trailer), became a horrific zombie movie (revised trailer), and The Shining (original trailer) was turned into a feel-good family film (revised trailer). When it comes to silent film, accompanists have infinite choic...

Michael Keaton to Play Tech Giant John McAfee in ‘King of the Jungle,’ Replacing Johnny Depp

Hopefully you won’t have to update your computer in order to see the true story of tech giant John McAfee in a new project called King of the Jungle that will be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris).

Ken, Buster and Marlene

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed historical and suspense novelist Ken Follett for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). Ken talked about growing up in a Puritan household in Wales and then London where his parents eschewed pleasure. Which meant no TV, no radio, no records and no going to the movies. As a result, Ken grew up reading adventure novels—until his parents finally bought a cabinet with a built-in radio and turntable. It enabled him to listen to th...

50 Under 50 - Part V

I'm 31 movies into my resolution to watch 50 movies made before 1950 in 2018 [see Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV]. I faltered a bit due to vacations, but am pretty much back on track. If I only watch one qualifying movie a week until the end of the year, I'm only 2 movies behind. Considering that I only really started doing this challenge in March or so, I should be good. Further, I expect a fair amount of my 6 Weeks of Halloween horror movie marathon to qualify, such that it's quite poss...

11 Creative Décor Solutions For Temporary Living Spaces

Decorating a temporary living space is just as exciting a creative endeavor as it is an extremely frustrating one. Personalizing a blank canvas bedroom that we do not own makes even the most simple of home ornamentation tactics (like hanging picture frames, painting walls, or lighting candles) off-limits. Not to mention the effort spent moving heavier statement pieces into these spaces often outweighs the actual time spent living in them. In order to successfully transform temporary homes accor...

The Beach Party Film: A Short Appreciation of One of the Oddest Subgenres in Film History

Dallas, TX cinephile Andrew Saladino has a fabulous film critique channel called The Royal Ocean Film Society, which he’s been operating since 2016, following in the footsteps of Every Frame a Painting (RIP) and Press Play (RIP). In this recent essay, he turns his eye to the mostly forgotten and never particularly good “dead genre” known as the Beach Party film. You’ve probably seen one, or at least a parody of one, somewhere along the way--formulaic and harmless surf’n’fun films sold to...

Fashion Inspired by Annie Hall

La-di-da, la-di-da, la la. Dianne Keaton's style as the titular character in Annie Hall was a revolutionary look in the '70s that is still admired today.Annie Hall's iconic style was inspired by Keaton's own wardrobe, which was way different from the fashion of the time. In fact, the film's costume designer thought the tie/vest/khakis combo (pictured above) was too "crazy" for the big screen! Luckily, the outfit made the final cut and ushered in an era of women wearing menswear-inspired fashion...
