Looking Back at the ‘Fosse/Verdon’ Dancing Legends That Inspired FX Series

  • Variety
On April 9, FX debuts “Fosse/Verdon,” about two people who may not be household names, but are certainly in the Pantheon to those who love musicals.

In the Jan. 25, 1950, issue, Variety reviewer Hobe Morrison lamented the stage revue “Alive and Kicking,” but gave one of the few positive mentions to newcomer Gwen Verdon. (Among others in the cast: Carl Reiner.) Variety’s first story about Bob Fosse ran on July 24, 1952, when he signed as a performer with MGM. The two met in 1955, when she starred in Broadway’s “Damn Yankees,” which he choreographed. In the May 6, 1955, review, Morrison had problems with the show, but high praise for both of them. For the 1958 film, they reprised those duties and he also appeared in the “Who’s Got the Pain” mambo number.

The teaming of director-choreographer Fosse and star Verdon was unbeatable for years with such Broadway shows as “Redhead” (1960), “Sweet Charity” (1966) and

Woody Allen’s Reported Relationship With 16-Year-Old: What We Know

In an exclusive new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former model Babi Christina Engelhardt claimed for the first time that she had a secret eight-year affair with director Woody Allen that began in 1976, when she was just 16 years old and he was 41. While Engelhardt, now 59, said she has no regrets and described being a willing participant, the legal age of consent in New York — then and now — is 17. The ongoing discussion of gender, power, and exploitation prompted by the #MeToo movement have made Engelhardt’s memories more uncomfortable, provoking mixed emotions about their unequal dynamic,

Former Model Says She Had 8-Year Affair With Woody Allen When She Was a Teenager

Roseanne Barr Timeline: From the National Anthem to Twitter, How She’s Always Courted Controversy

Roseanne Barr Timeline: From the National Anthem to Twitter, How She’s Always Courted Controversy
To know Roseanne Barr is to know controversy. The outspoken comic has been a firebrand since the moment she stepped on the scene in the late 1980s, and the success of “Roseanne” perhaps only heightened her eccentric approach to the world.

But in recent years, Barr’s behavior has been amplified by social media, and she appears to have been caught under the spell of crazy, irrational conspiracy theories and lies. That’s led to plenty of offensive statements and combative behavior against anyone who challenges her online.

ABC had hoped that Barr was now in check. She was on her best behavior at the Television Critics Association press tour in January, and Disney/ABC TV president Ben Sherwood even felt comfortable enough to tease Barr’s outspokenness a few weeks ago at the network’s upfront presentation. When Barr joked that Sherwood was “the guy responsible for most of my tweets,

Roseanne Review: ABC Revival Is (Almost) a Home Run

First the good news: ABC’s Roseanne revival (premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 27, at 8/7c) is pretty fantastic. In fact, the second episode — which largely revolves around Roseanne and Dan coming to terms with gender-fluid grandson Mark’s bold fashion choices — ranks among the show’s best ever. Brimming with acid-tinged one-liners, delivered by deeply flawed characters who are just trying to do the right thing, the smart, bold and riotous half-hour serves as a glorious reminder of why the original Roseanne was a groundbreaking TV phenomenon in the first place.

Now the bad news — and yes, it

Oscars flashback: Meryl Streep exclaims ‘Holy mackerel’ winning her 1st Oscar for ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ [Watch]

Oscars flashback: Meryl Streep exclaims ‘Holy mackerel’ winning her 1st Oscar for ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ [Watch]
Believe it or not, long before a record-shattering 21 Oscar nominations, there was a time when Meryl Streep was not the queen of the movies. After finishing at Yale Drama School in the 1970s, Streep found steady work on stage and television before her breakout role in 1978’s Best Picture Oscar winner, “The Deer Hunter.” That film brought Streep her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress (and first loss) for her performance as Linda, the fiancee of a troubled Vietnam vet (Christopher Walken in an Oscar-winning performance).

The following year she starred in three major films: as the love interest of Alan Alda in “The Seduction of Joe Tynan;” as Woody Allen’s lesbian ex-wife in “Manhattan;” and as the troubled Joanna Kramer opposite Dustin Hoffman in “Kramer vs Kramer.” It was that latter role that brought her a first-ever win at the Academy Awards. The first words exclaimed by Streep were “Holy mackerel!

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition
This article marks Part 2 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1978, Meryl Streep, already renowned for her work on the New York stage, grabbed the attention of moviegoers across the country with her Oscar-nominated turn in the Best Picture champ “The Deer Hunter.” That year, however, would seem minor in comparison to what was on the horizon in 1979.

Streep was about to work with three of the decade’s hottest directors – Woody Allen, at his most in-demand after “Annie Hall” (1977) and “Interiors” (1978); Robert Benton, whose “The Late Show” (1977) was a big hit; and Jerry Schatzberg, who won critical acclaim with “The Panic in Needle Park” (1971) and “Scarecrow” (1973).

Woody Allen’s 57-Year Personal Archive Has Been Opened, and It’s ‘Full of Misogyny’ and an ‘Obsession With Young Girls’

The Washington Post freelance writer Richard Morgan has become the first person to read the entirety of Woody Allen’s personal archive, which has been kept at Princeton University’s Firestone Library since 1980. The archive includes screenplay drafts and notes and is described by Morgan as being Allen’s “56-box, 57-year personal archives.”

One draft found in the collection is for a film called “The Filmmaker,” which would’ve starred Allen as a Fellini-inspired porn director who falls madly in love with a younger woman.

The Inconceivable Question of Why Louis C.K. Would Make 'I Love You, Daddy' in the First Place

The Inconceivable Question of Why Louis C.K. Would Make 'I Love You, Daddy' in the First Place
On Thursday, The Orchard announced it would be "giving careful consideration" to the release of Louis C.K.'s film, I Love You, Daddy, in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct against the comedian. It took less than 24 hours of consideration for the distributor to scrap it altogether. Sure, you could do like Ridley Scott and recast C.K. with Christopher Plummer, but Plummer can't rewrite and reshoot the entire movie, too.

That the movie should never see the light of day is only a shame for one reason: the actresses, especially -- Chloë Grace Moretz, Edie Falco, Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne -- give great performances. But also, there is no reason this movie ever should have happened. Considering C.K. is (or was) one of the most successful working standups and a six-time Emmy winner still extolled for his series, Louie, he seemingly could have made any movie he wanted. (Considering he self-funded

Woody Allen’s New Film Includes a Sexual Relationship Between an Adult and a 15-Year-Old Girl — Report
Woody Allen’s new movie, “Wonder Wheel,” doesn’t open until December, but he’s already at work on his next project starring Elle Fanning, Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, and Timothée Chalamet. The movie is reportedly called “A Rainy Day in New York,” and its story could end up resulting in another controversy for the director. Page Six reports the movie stars Law as a middle-aged married man who “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.” The 44-year-old character allegedly has a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old “concubine,” played by Fanning.

According to Page Six: “In the scene, the so-called concubine acknowledges her relationship with Law’s much-older character, but then protests that she is 21 years old. After a discussion about his infidelity, Fanning’s character then asks Law, ‘Were all these women for pleasure, or were you researching a project?'”

All of Ernest Hemingway House's 54 Famous, Six-Toed Cats Accounted for After Hurricane Irma Batters the Florida Keys
“My grandfather’s famous quote was ‘courage is grace under pressure,’ but I think this is taking it too far,” said Mariel Hemingway when she heard that the manager of her family’s historic home, the Hemingway House in Key West, Florida, had decided to stay with the 54 cats that live on the property despite the massive approaching storm, Hurricane Irma.

The house, which now operates as a museum, was built in 1849 and completed in 1851. Hemingway moved into it in 1931, and he lived there until 1940. The house is recognized as a National Historic Landmark and Literary Landmark by the U.
