2011 festival year is off and running in Palm Springs

user
Opening just six days after New Years the Palm Springs Film Festival can probably lay claim to the honor of being the very first such festival of any size or significance on the annual international film festival calendar. For readers unfamiliar with the geography of Southern California, most of the lower part of the state is actually a desert and Palm Springs is a kind of extremely upscale oasis in the middle of this desert, a hundred miles away from Los Angeles and halfway to more desert over ...

Wow, What A Musical Lineup

user
THE WRECKING CREW, the music documentary that opened the Connecticut Film Festival at the historic Palace Theater in Danbury last evening, was a musical wow. Telling the story of the studio session musicians who backed up some of the recording industry's biggest stars, the film was an eye-opening look at an era when popular musical acts did not necessarily play musical instruments, and these professional back up musicians were not acknowledged. The documentary, a 12 year labor of ...

Meet Filmmaker Denny Tedesco

user
  Denny Tedesco decided to make his film debut THE WRECKING CREW about a subject close to his heart. His father had been a studio musician who played backup for some of the reigning giants of the recording industry. But as the son of a musician who stayed in the shadows for his career, Tedesco was also aware of the difficult choices and somewhat unfulfilled lives these people endured. So, his choice for his directorial debut seems inspired...a tribute to the unsung musicians who play ...

GORDON M. DOUGLAS DIRECTED IT ALL !

user
Surely the most versatile of Hollywood Directors, and although his name rings no bells, Gordon DOUGLAS - sometimes billed as Gordon M. Douglas, created a remarkable piece of work, his cinematic career spanning over five decades. Indeed, what Hollywood film director could boast having helmed such a spectrum of personalities ranging in the 30's, from a hoofing Al Jolson, through action westerns with Randolph Scott in the '40's, rambling on to culminate in rock sensation Elvis Presley...

Big Mike Craft to offer the Legend Ernest Borgnine, a role for the Saratoga, N.Y. Movie!

user
One of the greatest actors of all times is Ernest Borgnine. He was the best heavy of his time. A man who is decended from Italian royality, and an academy award winner, is going to be welcomed to our film, if he so wishes.   His part can not be discussed now for negotiations have just started for Laila Ali, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra Jr. and now Ernest Borgnine. I realize that Mr. Borgnine is 90 years old, but if he is willing, and his health is fine, he is welcome to join o...

Big Mike Craft, and a few drinks with Frank Sinatra Sr. in the 70's

user
I was very young when I met Frank Sinatra. I was out in Vegas in 1969 for the first time and would go out every 6 months or so. I went a lot after 1973 when I got rid of my business partner Tony. He was a pain with his constant complaining so we severed the partnership. It was in the Fall of 69 that I first met Mr. Sinatra. I was in the Desert Inn having a drink when someone told him I worked for Meyer Lansky. Moe Daliz did not want me to ever start up with people because all my ol...

The 'New' Venice Film Festival

user
The 61st Venice International Film Festival has long been an “A” festival of world renown. This year an anti-globalization manifestation on the first day raised the question of how Venice may more and more be bowing to Hollywood glamour and celebrities by staging world premieres to market films outside the US. Many of these films do better in the global box office as proof. The manifestation was designed to blow the horn about the presence of Hollywood movie headliners with top stars as majo...
