6 Degrees Film Round-up for April

This April, 6 Degrees is focusing on the great films that are found on the small screen. Our big screen blockbusters have often been eclipsed by the amount of content that has been available to everyone through streaming and all the online services. Even the Oscar winner CODA made history (which was overshadowed by ‘the slap!,’ by being released through a streaming platform and not a traditional studio. Another big event was the Best Director Oscar going to a woman for the third time! There is change afoot, but it is always a bit slow… Turner Classic features Strong Women on Film   There are always great movies with strong female leads on Turner Classic. This month, my favorite picks are Ninotchka, The Harvey Girls, The Philadelphia Story and Rachel & the Stranger. The Harvey Girls and Rachel & the Stranger deal with the real-life background stories of women who were true pioneers. The Harvey Girls were women who had the courage to move out west and try to bring ‘civilization’ to the rough and tumble world that existed past the Mississippi River! And Rachel & the Stranger dealt with the reality that occurred when your spouse died. It meant that the need to replace a strong worker was real, and it came before love or romance or anything else when you were out on a farm on the lone prairie! The Philadelphia Story is beloved for the scene where Cary Grant thinks better of assaulting his ex-wife and instead pushes her down. This is one of those controversial moments in old films. because it would be considered an acceptance of violent acts against women in modern times. In this case, it somehow fits the storyline and also tells us that there are and were characters such as Katherine Hepburn, who could fight back with words as well as deeds to make the men appear small! And Ninotchka is well-known from the Golden Age of Hollywood for the great publicity line, “Garbo Laughs!” This was a rarity in Garbo’s career, as she didn’t appear in many comedies.   Books on Film   For National Library Week, we have tried to highlight the many great books that have been written about film. Some are listed on the website and each Friday, in 6 Degrees of Film at the Movies, we feature the best recommended blogs as well as books and reviews on film. This week, we have recommended some books I love including “Film Noir” -edited by Alain Silver & Elizabeth Ward. There’s a great pictorial guide from Life Magazine-“Life goes to the Movies.”  And “The Story of Film” is a short history of film by Mark Cousins. There’s one with all sorts of great stories from films Golden Age called “The Great Movie Stars” from David Shipman. Another reference volume I love is “The Movies,” from Griffith & Mayer. Another good read for writers is “Writers in Hollywood” by Ian Hamilton.  And one of the more recent books that I really like is from Alicia Malone: “Girls on Film: Lessons from a Life of Watching Women in Movies.”  And finally, of course you can take a short walk through the history of film with my own “6 Degrees of Film: The Future of Film in the Global Village. ”  We are celebrating our ninth year in publication with a new Ebook Addendum out soon! From the Friday Flix Files   Finally, on the topic of resources for film, there is our Friday Flix magazine.  Friday Flix has a mix of articles on the Golden Age of film as well as news about the latest adventures in Hollywood (Yes, the ‘slap’ is there as well!) Some of the latest not-to-miss topics include: Life Changing Movies: The Atlantic delves into the question of what elements can make a movie life changing; And from my book, I have a post about films that did affect my life. Some films can definitely be life-changing… Coen Brothers: The unique film-making qualities that comprise the films made by the Coen Brothers are the reason that their films have been so successful. In this piece, there are ten tips that make their films stand out from the rest… Critics Choice: One of the unique tidbits that we found out this past week concerned the invention of the “Two thumbs up” sign for a movie’s success or failure. Siskel & Ebert were the great film critics out of Chicago who dominated the film review industry for years. Ebert’s widow, Chaz, has put together a special article that lists some of the reasons that Roger Ebert was one of the great film critics of all time. 50 Years of The Godfather: Friday Flix features several articles celebrating the fifty years since one of America’s most beloved films made its debut. Some facts about the making, some behind-the-scenes look from the cast members and some thoughtful pieces that try to pinpoint why this film has made such a powerful impact upon the psyche of our lives and times. How Star Wars changed the Film Industry   And finally, Cine-vue.com has a piece that marks the definitive ways in which Star Wars has impacted and changed the film industry since its 1975 debut. That is also one of the sections that is covered in my book, “6 Degrees of Film.” Here is a short excerpt: “…Peter Bogdanovich said, “There’s a general juvenilization of movies that’s happened over the last ten years that’s pretty scary. The other day, somebody read a script that I was working on and said, ‘Oh, I get it: This is an adult comedy.’ I said, ‘What do you mean—that it’s a comedy FOR adults?  He said, ‘No, no, no, it’s a comedy ABOUT adults.’ Most of the comedies, the rest of the comedies, are about kids. I think a lot of things have gone wrong. Movies are far less complex in their structure and in their execution than they’ve ever been.” In their defense, let’s remember Spielberg

6 Degrees of Film February Round-up: Oscar Nominations are here!

Film fans, there has been a lot of hype surrounding this awards season in Hollywood. Some films were snubbed and some great acting performances were overlooked. But there has been more emphasis on diversity and inclusion, and this is something new to the Hollywood brand! The Oscar Nominees for 2022 Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of MacBeth) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Power of the Dog),  are two actors that are always in my top tier of Best Actor choices.  Also nominated in the Best Actor category:   Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos),, Will Smith (King Richard) and Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick..Boom!)   For Best Actress: Kristen Stewart is nominated for Spencer along with Penelope Cruz  (Parallel Mothers), and Nicole Kidman (also Being the Ricardos) plus Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter.) Jessica Chastain has long been one of my favorites, and she is up for The Eyes of Tammy Faye.   The Best Picture list is long (too long!) There are ten films that include most of the usual suspects that were expected to be nominated, or have won other prestigious awards. The Power of the Dog is a strong favorite, along with Belfast from Kenneth Branagh. The other films are Dune, Drive My Car, King Richard, Licorice Pizza, Nightmare Alley, Don’t Look Up, CODA & West Side Story.   The Best Director category is notable as Jane Campion is one of the few female directors who has even been nominated for this honor. Kenneth Branagh is a strong favorite,  as is Paul Thomas Anderson for Licorice Pizza. But the Japanese film, Drive My Car has also won several top honors so director Ryuseke Hamauguchi has a good shot at it, making this a very tight race! Turner Classic Films: The Armchair Film Fest   We often speak of the Armchair Film Festival (even before there was COVID!), so this month is chock full of films to record and to revisit in the wake of the Oscar Nominations. The Boxing films to record for an Armchair Film Fest would begin with the great documentary on Muhammad Ali’s fight with George Foreman called, When we were Kings. It is a good film to see as part of Black History Month also.   The Set Up with Robert Ryan tells the classic story of an aging boxer on the ropes who is asked to throw a fight. Robert Ryan is one of my favorites from the Noir genre. The director is notable too; he is Robert Wise, the same director from the Film Noir genre who went on to fame with his masterful direction of The Sound of Music in the sixties. Pioneering Women The women pioneers of #MeToo are out in force in February. Judy Garland plays this remarkable character in The Harvey Girls that was based on the real-life women who worked in these Western towns and really were instrumental in helping to build and to carve out civilization in the “Old West.” Lauren Bacall debuted opposite Humphrey Bogart in To Have & Have Not, which was based on a story by Ernest Hemingway. It’s a good film, not as good as Casablanca, and not as engaging as The Big Sleep, but it’s still a good B movie. Armchair Film Fest Recommends…   One of the best Film Noir stories is shown in a two-part Armchair Fest featuring Gene Tierney. Laura is the Film Noir classic that is definitely required viewing for all lovers of Noir. Next is The Ghost & Mrs Muir, which is an entertaining and unique romantic tale of two lovers who meet and are doomed to be apart as one of them is already dead! The ghost is played superbly by a young Rex Harrison. Some of the greatest actors in Hollywood are featured on TCM this month. Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper are outstanding in Hoosiers. And Montgomery Clift is featured in Red River followed by Wild River. The young Monty Clift vs the older version is worth recording for the Armchair Film Fest… And since PBS has shown a series based on the Jules Verne classic, “Around the World in 80 Days,’ it’s worth seeing the version that was a big hit in the fifties starring David Niven. Rounding out Turner Classic this month are films that honor black history. We have mentioned When we were Kings, and for your Armchair Film Fest, you can add the documentary Black Panthers, and the film, Mississippi Burning, starring Willem Dafoe.  The film was based on a true story of what happened to Freedom Riders in the sixties as they tried to register African-Americans to vote in the deep South. 6 Degrees of Film: The Long Reads   This month, Friday Flix has an article from Film Comment that delves into the question of what is going to happen to the art form of cinema in the post-COVID world.  That is an interesting question that was also discussed at length in my book from 2013:  6 Degrees of Film: The Future of Film in the Global Village.  The era of streaming and the pandemic has created a real dilemma for the film industry which has always been based on the big business of profit and loss over the question of artistic freedom and purity. There are other questions that are raised when discussing where film is going, and were also addressed briefly in 6 Degrees of Film. One of them regards the 74 year old court ruling known as “The Paramount Decree” which sunsets in August of this year. The move paved the way for the rise of television but also ushered in the end of the Golden Age of Film.  Movie theaters controlled a monopoly, as they also owned the theaters in which their films were shown. When they were ordered to sell their theaters, the profit margin collapsed along with their business model! That ruling is discussed as well as what may happen to the industry when the law sunsets in August. Another fly in the ointment of

6 Degrees of Film: April Round-up with Oscar winners Past & Present!

Hello Film Fans! This weekend, 6 Degrees Round-Up looks at some of the past Oscar winners as well as the current Best Picture nominees list. And one of our favorite film writers from Forbes, Scott Mendelson, talks about the Cinematic power struggle that is taking place in our new world order of Cinema. The New Cinematic Order With Scott Mendelson’s first sentence, it’s a declaration of sorts about the way that it plays out for most Hollywood genres in the new Cinema Order of Dominance. Not only does China dominate in terms of market share and box office gross, but the old order of genres has been supplanted by the comic book movies from DC and Marvel. Any remaining categories are swallowed up by Disney, the elephant in the room in regard to the movies to keep on the radar. Cruella is the latest origin story from Disney, starring Emma Stone as the villainess with a love for Dalmation coats. Obscure Oscars: The Best Picture Nominees The new list for Best Picture nominees is comprised of some of the least well-known movies in the history of Oscar. Nomadland is one that has received a lot of critical praise. Other films in the group include Judas and the Black Messiah, Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, Mank, The Father and Promising Young Woman. The final Best Picture nominee, Sound of Metal, made just $100,000 in ticket sales this past year.  The Academy will announce the winners on Sunday April 25th and again this year, there is no official guest host for the evening.   Top ten on Turner: Oscar worthy film list Turner Classic is trotting out their month-long Oscar worthy pictures with both nominees and some eventual winners included. A top ten list recommended for viewing from 6 Degrees includes; My Favorite Year: With Peter O’ Toole playing a self-parody of himself and other movie stars who may have swash-buckled their way to fame and fortune. To Be or Not to Be: This was comedienne and actress Carole Lombard’s last film and it’s a classic comedy directed by Ernst Lubitsch and co-stars Jack Benny. The Search is one of Montgomery Clift’s earlier films, and it’s worth seeing just to watch his acting style mature. And even with an albeit at times syrupy story, there are some moving moments in this tale of a young boy who has lost contact with his parents during World War II. Clift is the soldier who takes him in and helps him cope through the sadness of an apocalyptic landscape centered in post-war Europe. On the Waterfront features a young Marlon Brando acting without the added baggage of the Tennessee Williams’ play on his back. Brando is excellent in the part of a young man whose older brother, played by Rod Steiger, helps to run an operation of mob-connected, Union-busting thugs that dominate the docks and workers who try to buck the system. The Miracle Worker features an exceptional performance not only from a young Patty Duke, but the incomparable Anne Bancroft, who plays her teacher and savior, the unflappable woman named Anne Sullivan who is trying desperately to break through to a young child. That child is Helen Keller, who is faced with challenges of not only deafness but blindness as well. A Man for all Seasons is one of the rare films that swept the Academy Award field with nominations and winners. Best Actor for Paul Scofield, Best Picture of the Year and won Oscars for Best Director, screenplay and cinematography. The other film sweeps included One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, It Happened One Night, Ben-Hur and Titanic. Judgment at Nuremberg featured an all-star cast that included Judy Garland, Montgomery Clift and Spencer Tracy. The real-life story was so compelling, as with many of the stories on this list, because it combined fiction with elements of truth from the actual events of the Nuremberg trials. Inherit the Wind also stars Spencer Tracy in a fictionalized play that used the real-life elements of the Scopes Monkey Trial, the famous courtroom drama where Evolution was on trial. For something completely different: A Hard Days Night was so different at the time it was made, and it still stands out as one of the best rock musical films ever made. The documentary style elements of the black and white film worked so well because it was released in an era when New Wave Cinema gave us films like Breathless and 8 ½.  The Beatles were a new phenomenon and the hysteria surrounding their appearances were captured and still resonate a half-century later. 6 Degrees of Film Magazine Voyagers is a sci- fi thriller film that is reviewed on Ebert and in other online sites in 6 Degrees Magazine this week. The 25th Anniversary of the film for “Foodies”- The Big Night is marked with a review on RogerEbert.com. And Lin-Manuel Miranda talks about his much-anticipated new film based on his Broadway hit, In the Heights. Check it out this week in 6 Degrees of Film!

6 Degrees of Film: March Round Up: Celebrating Women’s History!

Greetings Film Fans! The month of March has brought us lots of good news from the world of film. We are celebrating Women’s History month here at 6 Degrees, and the spotlight is on the rising number of women who are directors of both independent and major Hollywood films. To be fair, there have been many powerful women in Hollywood working behind the scenes at the studios for decades. But the role of auteur and the vision and focus that a director can bring to a picture is one that has not been explored by enough women throughout the history of film. Rotten Tomatoes has a post on the 165 Best Movies directed by women in the 21st Century. Other notable news is the mixed reviews received for Eddie Murphy’s anticipated comedy sequel Coming 2 America-which was described several times as a ‘retread.’ There’s also an interview with the director of the film Craig Brewer. Another anticipated film released is Raya & the Last Dragon, which is reviewed on Rogerebert.com And there’s a question now being floated around about the true meaning of the cinematic experience and if that is achievable if movies are going to be streamed from now on?  Martin Scorsese asks the question, and we also hear from Forbes’ film critic Scott Mendelson. Mendelson looks at the consequences of Hollywood prioritizing the streaming services over the existence of a successful film opening at the box office as they did in the ‘old days.’ (Pre-Covid!) Meanwhile, back at the Turner Classic Movie place, there is a new era where the old films that were written and produced in the ‘bad old days’ of big studios and the so-called Golden Age of Hollywood are getting a new look and some much-needed analysis. The scrutiny is part of the screenings going forward at TCM, so this should prove interesting!  Turner Classic: Strong Women at the Movies The women in movies come from different backgrounds and work in various genres: Musicals, westerns, comedies, all sharing This month the strong women who were pioneers of Hollywood film share the same common denominator-a strength of character that permeates the scope of the film, whatever genre be it a Western, a musical or a comedy. They include this month’s ‘Star of the Month”- Doris Day, as well as Olivia de Havilland and Katherine Hepburn. Westerns In three of the featured westerns: The Westerner, Calamity Jane and Red River, the women are not always center stage (with the exception of Calamity Jane), but the roles are written for smart women who are tough and can survive in the old west. The Classics Lawrence of Arabia is one of the films often seen on the top ten lists of famous critics (In 6 Degrees, it comes in at Number Four!) We have it described as such: “A not so simple tale based on the real-life exploits of T.E. Lawrence, the famous English adventurer. The deceptively simple quality of this complex man is introduced at the beginning of the film when various people try to describe him with each coming up with a different description” A Man for All Seasons swept the Oscars with multiple wins for Best Actor and Best Picture. The 6 Degrees Connection in our top 100 list has A Man for All Seasons at Number sixty-six. The film has a basis in true historical events- It’s from a play based on the true story of Sir Thomas More, a man who stood on his principles and refused to use his influence to obtain an annulment for King Henry VIII and paid for his refusal with his life. The de Havilland Decision Olivia De Havilland is featured in Adventures of Robin Hood with Errol Flynn. This was an early role for De Havilland before she put her foot down about accepting parts in films that were not to her liking. Here’s an excerpt from 6 Degrees of Film talking about the landmark case brought by Olivia de Havilland and known as the ‘de Havilland Decision.’ Olivia de Havilland also fought studio bosses, winning a landmark decision against onerous hiring practices in what became known as the de Havilland Decision. She began her film career at the age of nineteen starring in Captain Blood with Errol Flynn. She was under a seven-year contract with the Warner Brothers film studio, a standard contract for all performers, who signed their lives away when they agreed to the terms. She was “loaned out” to David O. Selznick for her memorable part in Gone with the Wind, which earned her an Oscar nomination in 1939. After that, she demanded better parts beyond the same old sweet-young-thing roles she had been playing. The studio not only refused but slapped her with a six-month suspension, another standard practice of those who wielded absolute control. The last straw came at the end of her seven-year contract, when Warner Brothers informed her that she had to make up the lost six months from her suspension. Adding time to contracts was another standard operating procedure to keep actors in line. This time, de Havilland sued. The court ruled in de Havilland’s favor, stating that not only did she not have to make up the suspension, but all future seven-year contracts had to hold to the intent and not force extra time from suspensions on the contracted actor. The de Havilland Decision paved the way for better treatment for actors from the omnipotent studio bosses. Olivia de Havilland was right in her decision to hold out for more quality roles. She won an Oscar for her performance in The Snake Pit, one of Hollywood’s early attempts to portray serious subject matters such as mental health problems. As one of Hollywood’s pioneering women, she has paved the way for all female actors and for all women working in Hollywood Comedy Murder by Death is the Neil Simon film adaptation notable for its stellar all-star cast.  Overboard was remade recently, but the original is the best.

6 Degrees of Film: February Film Round Up

Oscar News This month, February is a preview of things to come. And for things delayed! The Oscars will be held this year on Sunday, April 25th, so there will be a few months to go yet before the Oscar “Buzz” and predictions heat up. A good indicator always for the Oscar nominees are the many award shows that precede it. The Golden Globes, the SAG (Screen Artists Guild) awards, the BAFTA (British Equivalent of Oscar) and the Sundance Film Festival all preview some of the pre-eminent films of the past year. CODA won the Sundance Film Festival Best Picture; and Frances McDormand will surely be a nominee for Best Actress in Nomadland; plus the late Chadwick Boseman has been nominated in multiple categories for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. For current information and up to date reviews of the latest award nominees and winners, check out 6 Degrees of Film magazine each week. Tributes to those we lost We just heard of the passing of Christopher Plummer, an exceptional actor who after so many credits, will always best known for his role of Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music.” Cicely Tyson also died recently, and that fact only serves to remind us of the talents of those pioneers who helped to break barriers for African-American women in film. Black History Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is one of the films that is showing at the movies and is streaming currently. And as mentioned, the late Chadwick Boseman has broken ground for nominations in a variety of categories, for roles in Ma Rainey’s as well as the many memorable roles he created. Boseman, like Mr Plummer in Sound of Music, will be known primarily as the defining character in the Black Panther Marvel series. Some other notable films for Black History Month include Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner starring Sidney Poitier, playing on Turner Classic this month.  But I would recommend the original documentary series “Eyes on the Prize” and Spike Lee’s Malcolm X with Denzel Washington for those who seriously want to delve into Black History. The movie: The Black Panther is another obvious choice to watch, as well as Hidden Figures, both of these films being much more recent and notably well received. Chadwick Boseman was also brilliant as Jackie Robinson in 42 and to complete your viewing, there is his turn as the famed first Black Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, playing Marshall as a rising young lawyer in the early fifties in the film- Marshall. Armchair Film Fest At 6 Degrees, each week we highlight the film events as well as the small screen feature films that are notable enough to record and watch (Sometimes known as “Binge-watching”!)….This month on Turner Classic Movies, they are featuring: Comedies with Mel Brooks: Blazing Saddles and The Producers are shown this month, both starring Gene Wilder. Robert Ryan: The Film Noir star is a particular favorite of mine-he is featured in Marine Raiders, The Set-up (Directed by Sound of Music director Robert Wise), and a Western-Trail Street. Romantic Valentine’s: For those who would like to see something romantic around Valentine’s Day, know that some of the most enduring romantic couples of all time are found in Hollywood’s Golden Age films. Casablanca features one such couple, and Doctor Zhivago features another. Alas, (Spoiler alert), both are films about a timeless love that endures, but if you are a fan of happy endings- Love doesn’t always lead to ‘Happily ever-afters” even in Hollywood! The state of Hollywood films in 2021 There are still many delays of big-studio films due to the ongoing Pandemic. James Bond will wait till November to debut with Daniel Craig in his last Bond film-No Time to Die. Some films will be released for streaming and On-Demand due to COVID-19 concerns. Stay tuned for announcements as the release dates have changed frequently these past months. That’s all for now, folks, and like everything else during the era of Covid, we will have to wait and see what the next few months bring in terms of Oscar nominations as well as the release dates for this year. Denzel Washington is currently starring in The Little Things, one of the films listed as popular at the drive-in’s, if you are lucky enough to find one near you!  Check it out if you can…Till next time, see you at the movies!-ML
