(Of course, that film also featured Jolson in blackface which unfortunately was common at the time.) From The Guardian: Just a year before (The Jazz Singer), Warners had made Don Juan, starring Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Astor, which didn’t exactly set the Hudson river on fire, despite sound effects like the clash of swords ...

In coronavirus-jolted entertainment landscape, streaming video going strong

It’s a no-brainer for the coronavirus-social-distanced, financially collapsing reality the world is living through now: streaming video on demand is the last big entertainment sector of the economy still thriving.

Who Watches the ‘Watchmen’ Test Footage From David Hayter’s Unmade 2003 Adaptation?

Before Watchmen became an acclaimed TV series, it was adapted into a feature film by Zack Snyder.

Hayter’s take on Watchmen obviously didn’t pan out, but the filmmaker was nice enough to release the test footage he s...
