Would you believe it? I came across the programme today in another cleanup of papers and junk.

Brett Gardiner on the cover.

Worth any $$$$$$$?

Sentimental value ... :)

I actually saw Nina Arienda onstage in Venus in Fur a few years back. She made a strong impression in an oddball but absorbing play.

Here are a still and a screencap from Firefox:

And a link to his obituary in The Guardian ...

Freddie Jones, who has died aged 91, was the best sort of old-fashioned actor, a comic tragedian, eccentric and full-hearted, with something of both Donald Wolfit and Dickens’ Vincent Crummles about him. Indeed, his most famous stage role was that of Ronald Harwood’s affectionate near-portrait of Wolfit in The Dresser (1980), an old ham called “Sir” who faces disaster in the mirror while preparing to play King Lear. And he memorably embodied the extravagant Crummles in a television Nicholas Nickleby of 1977.

... and Variety:

R.I.P., Freddie Jones

Eastwood News / Rip Torn ... R.I.P.

He was in one film with Clint, City Heat (as gangster Primo Pitt) ...

... but the IMDb lists no fewer than 190 other acting credits for "the hell-raising Texas-born actor who in real life was almost as colorful as the outsize characters he played in a 60-year TV and movie career" (NBC News). He also has two credits apiece as director and as producer. Now he is dead at the age of 88.

Now, the headline waiting for him all his life: Rip Torn, R.I.P.

The New York Times used the same still from Escape from Alcatraz to illustrate its obit ...

Unforgettable scene as English in Escape from Alcatraz ...

He also played the Judge in Pink Cadillac.

Paul Benjamin, R.I.P.

I hope the baseball games this weekend don't get rained out! :o

You're wrong ! You've seen "Space Cowboys" , I think ? :-) . Jon Hamm had a little role  in it . So he meets Clint for the second time, after 20 years. See here : Jon Hamm is the guy sitting with a blue shirt.

That's quite a find! I never would have spotted him.

Since it's pretty certain now that this is really happening, I've changed the thread title to "Richard Jewell: Production Information and News." We'll post all updates here until the time comes when the reviews start coming in, and then we'll start a new thread for that.  :)

You  would think they would quote from some of the negative reviews, too.

This Sunday, June 16, at 5:25. It's part of a Pauline Kael series ... films she loved and a few she hated (as in this case, naturally).

A film by Clint Eastwood

Rarely if ever a fan of the actor/director, Kael didn’t reverse course for this shoot-‘em-up action thriller, but it had been a Christmastime (!) hit by the time her negative review ran. Alcoholic cop Eastwood is assigned to spirit upscale call girl Sondra Locke from Las Vegas to Phoenix so that she can testify against a gangster, but he’s being set up by corrupt superiors in league with the mob. With many an Eastwood fave including Bill McKinney, Mara Corday, and Dan Vadis.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it.  For anyone in the area who can: the Quad is at 34 W. 13th Street, near Sixth Avenue, in Manhattan.

I thought Damon was actually fine in the part, but I might have felt differently if I were a rugby fan.

Well we broke 100 posts in May at least!

Feels like this should go in the stats thread! 8)
I hope that wasn't counting the spam posts the mods had to remove.

Thanks, Antonis, and Hocine! That is one of the best pictures of Clint from the last few years that I've seen.

No amount of filmmaking trickery could have made the guy on the right look anything like the guy on the left:

Happy Birthday, Clint! Many thanks for all your great films through all the years, and may there be much more to come! 8)

Not having the right body type wasn't a factor for Damon when Clint cast him in Invictus. (Not that I think he would be right for this project, just saying.)

Well, if Clint really does start in on that new movie, hopefully it will pick up again.
