My name is . I live in , Russia. Also, I'm a student at the university. I am studying . I have a hobby and I enjoy .

While I do voyage far-reaching in my home country. I also pass through abroad.

Now, I'm in and I've noticed a few things.

One, great videos!!! Many of the film makers use magical realism as a device to discover the genuineness of the human condition

I've listed better-quality than a the minority links to magical realism and movie websites here on this page. These are the most popular pages here in .

They definitely should be indexed by google.com.

I'm touring looking for film ventures to bring back to Russia.

The 270 guests paid five bucks apiece for such festive pos­sibilities as Lobster Eugenie, Filet of Sole au Beurre, Jumbo Squab, and, with a touch of hometown spirit, Los Angeles Salad.

Added to a feed: Oscar typecasting is a trap…

Oscar typecasting is a trap… Oscar typecasting is a trap that can be avoided only by deft maneuvering. No one knows this better than Estelle Parsons, who, after a long Broadway career of great depth, won the 1967 Best Supporting Actress award for Bonnie and Clyde. Parsons, Broadway’s woman of a thousand faces, played the hysterical and silly Blanche—the dramatic antagonist to Warren Beatty’s Clyde and Faye Dunaway’s Bonnie. “I must have been offered dozens of Blanche parts in the years right after the Oscar,” said Parsons. “For that matter, I...

Added to a feed: The term “Oscar curse” was in­vented for Luise Rainer

The term “Oscar curse” was in­vented for Luise Rainer There is another form of Oscar cash-in—a more subtle and perhaps more damaging misuse of an Academy Award. Since the thirties, Hollywood’s money men have never been able to resist herding the winners through projects that are designed to cash in, quickly and hugely, on the prestige of an Oscar. “Almost the morning after I won for Charly, a film I had to hand-guide through production, I was descended upon by the same myopic Monday-morning quarterbacks who hadn’t wanted to make the...

Added to a feed: When an Oscar winner fails, it’s usually a big failure

When an Oscar winner fails, it’s usually a big failure When an Oscar winner fails, it’s usually a big failure—a million-dollar failure. The Hollywood executives, who seem to see the Oscar as a golden four-leaf clover, soon feel that a winner can sprinkle Oscar dust on even the dreariest of films. “Executives suddenly lose their perspective with a big Oscar winner,” said Bosley Crowther of the New York Times. “The safeguards they normally have fail to operate. Disas­ters easily follow.” The Oscar often creates an artistic and economic Peter Principle...

Oscars comes to grips with the Vietnam War In 1978 the Oscars finally came to grips with the Vietnam War; it was a case of better late than never. The fact that Jane Fonda had to fight for six years to scrape together the cash to film Coming Home speaks for itself. Hollywood was afraid of Vietnam films and more afraid of the ultraconservative audiences who might boycott them. But Coming Home with Fonda and Jon Voight, and Michael Cimino’s The Deer Hunter with Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro, broke...

That same night there was Debby Boone in virgin white, singing the nominated “You Light Up My Life,” as cloyingly sweet a song as the Oscarcast had heard in many a year. Daddy Pat Boone and his wife, Shirley, sat out in the audience, holding hands, saying “wow,” and fighting the tears. To make it even more touching, Debby was sur­rounded, like Dorothy by the Munchkins, with darling ten-year-old girls who interpreted the song in sign language. And within minutes there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Bob Hope...

The 1975 Oscars and Politics In 1975, Howard W. Koch was back as producer, and the backstage area exploded into a battlefield for superstars. Bert Schneider, who won the Oscar for Best Documentary (feature) for Hearts and Minds, a controversial anti-Vietnam War film, thanked Hollywood for the award and then took out a telegram sent that day from Hanoi. Thanks, America, said the wire. Thanks for liberating South Vietnam. As Schneider read the words haltingly, the celebrity audience was a bit slow on the uptake. Many people thought the pro­ducer...

The Oscarcast on April 2, 1974, was so star-glutted that buses were sent to Los Angeles International Airport to collect the herds winging in from England and France. There was Twiggy and Frangois Truffaut, Liza Minnelli and Linda Blair, Susan Hayward and Alfred Hitchcock. And, as an added Roman candle, Katharine Hepburn, appearing at the ceremony...

Economic worth of an Oscar to an actor Oscar’s prestige, in any case, has never been in question, and its economic worth to an actor is, with rare exception, a big plus. A London tabloid fixed the value of Julie Christie’s Oscar for Darling (1965) at $10 million. “That’s what she’ll get during the next ten years,” said a columnist, writing under the headline o$car$ for julie. Estelle Parsons found that her fee had been multiplied by ten the day after she won the Best Supporting Actress award for Bonnie...

Best Supporting Actress Anne Baxter, The Razors Edge Baxter took up acting under the tutelage of Maria Ouspenskaya at the age of 11 and made her Broadway debut at 13. She was a competent actress who relied more on charm than on great beauty to create a career marked by some shining moments. She had a special gift for playing deceptively innocent young women, most famously as the scheming Eve Harrington in All About Eve (1950). Orson Welles cast her in The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), which revealed aspects of her...

A delicate beauty, de Havilland, the older sister of actress Joan Fontaine, scored a lucky break at age 19 when she was seen in a stage production by famous impre­sario Max Reinhardt, who helped launch her film career by casting her in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935).

Dorothy Malone and the Oscar Curse Enough of that callous, commercial attitude toward the Oscar re­mained twenty years later to relegate Dorothy Malone to the same fate. But there was one difference between the two: Malone’s performance on the set of Written on the Wind was so sensational that gossip was already giving her the Oscar even before the nominations were made. Her agents got the word also. She was bound, body and soul, to the huge MCA organization. And MCA had nepotistic ties to Malone’s contract company, Universal. “The...

Lee Marvin and the Oscar Curse A prime example of this cash-in is Lee Marvin, from Steiger’s own generation of winners. Marvin, after giving tour de force performances in Ship of Fools and Cat Ballon in the same year, consigned himself to forgettable movies. For consolation he has taken home massive pay­checks. ” ‘Just tow the mark and say the lines.’ That’s Bogart’s line, and, in the long run, he’s right,” Marvin said recently. He pulls a mil­lion a movie, and, he says, “I’m satisfied.” But Steiger forsook the millions...

Evidence of the Oscar Curse Oscar’s history certainly boasts of more success stories—rescued ca­reers and quick fortunes—than it boasts of reversals. But evidence of Oscar backlash goes as far back into the Academy’s past as the era when Luise Rainer won two Best Actress awards in a row (for 1936 and !937) and then virtually never made another decent film. Her career quickly became a curiosity—a Hollywood footnote. Some veteran stars like Oscar winner Joan Fontaine continue to speak of an Oscar jinx. “The Oscar was a marvelous concept of...

The so-called “Oscar curse” was invented during the Academy’s early days by that mama of all columnists, Louella Parsons. For Louella, whose view of Hollywood allowed for all superstition, the jinx was born on a Tinseltown Ouija board. “Beware, beware,” Louella cau­tioned many a dewy-eyed winner, “the Oscar will get you if you don’t watch out.” This was just so much emotional claptrap, of course. But the Oscar curse became real, and it was born in that era. It was born of greedy agents who priced their Oscar-winning clients out...
