'Rocky' actor Burt Young discusses lost Hal Ashby film

user
'Rocky' actor Burt Young chats with Movie Geeks United Now we know why Burt Young played Sylvester Stallone’s dyspeptic bother-in-law Paulie so convincingly in the penultimate Rocky picture: He was peeved at the he-man. Interviewed on Movie Geeks United, the legendary character actor says it was only his daughter’s fond memories of his earlier collaborations with Sly that repaired an epic rift. CAPTION: Burt (above): Much, ah, happier in the final Rocky fli...

Premiere of Lost Hal Ashby film; debut for Angelina Jolie

user
Talk about art imitating life, or vice-versa – or something like that. Here’s the story: In 1981, Jon Voight signed on to star in a comedy called Lookin’ To Get Out, which he’d co-written. Co-starring would be Burt Young of Rocky fame, and the stunning Ann-Margret. Directing would be Hal Ashby, a maverick who’d made such hit flicks as Harold and Maude (1971), Shampoo (1975) and Being There (1979), and who would die of cancer 1988. Jon had been pa...

The rythm of The Lost City

user
Did you ever see Bill Murray do the salsa? Or the mambo, rumba or any of that other Latin stuff? Well, let me tell you something. The guy’s got rhythm. I couldn’t help myself watching him in awe as he steered his way around the dance floor with a couple of breathless women. So, thinking I should get a firsthand experience, I navigated through the crowd of undulating bodies in a hope of being next in line. But woe is me, the music suddenly ended and Bill slipped off the floor.I found him in a...
