Big Screen to Small Screen: Top 10 Films About Television

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.

However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let

Interviews: Barbara Feldon, Bernie Kopell ‘Get Smart’ at The Hollywood Show

Chicago – The TV show “Get Smart,” which had its original run on the NBC network from 1965-1970, was an oddball classic. Created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the sitcom was a goofy satire on cold war politics of the 1960s, with a hapless operative named Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) working for the Control agency, spying against a foreign menace called Kaos. Barbara Feldon (Agent 99) and Bernie Kopell (Sigfried) were part of the supporting cast.

Feldon and Kopell were also part of The Hollywood Show, a two day gathering of favorite TV and movie stars to meet fans and sign autographs. The next show in Chicagoland will be at the Hilton Rosemont on September 7th and 8th, 2013 (details below the article). The Show will have over 30 celebrities in attendance, including Barbara Eden and Bill Daily (“I Dream of Jeannie”); Tippi Hedren (“The Birds”); Barry Livingston, Stanley Livingston and Tina Cole

Interview: Loni Anderson on Her Career at ‘The Hollywood Show’

Chicago – To answer the musical question, “Baby, if you ever wondered, wondered whatever became of me?” there is the sublime Loni Anderson, who portrayed Jennifer Marlowe on the popular 1970s sitcom, “Wkrp in Cincinnati.” Anderson was an attendee of “The Hollywood Show,” which comes to Chicago again on September 7th and 8th, 2013.

Loni Anderson is much like her character on Wkrp – luminous, intelligent and with a unique perspective. She climbed the show business ladder herself, after having a first marriage and a child in her teens. After that marriage ended before her 21st birthday, she finished college at the University of Minnesota and started an acting career, taking roles on stage and in local and national commercials. After moving to Los Angeles in 1975, she dyed her jet black hair to blonde, and began a series of high profile appearances on familiar dramas and comedies of the era, including “The Bob Newhart Show” and “Police Woman.

Don Grady, 'My Three Sons' brother, dies at 68

  • Pop2it
Don Grady (above, right), who played big brother Robbie Douglas on 1960s sitcom "My Three Sons," died Wednesday (June 27) at the age of 68. His death was confirmed to the AP by Barry Livingston (above, middle), who played youngest brother Ernie on the show. The two are pictured above with fellow on-screen brother Stanley Livingston (left).

Livingston says Grady had been suffering from cancer and was receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

"It's the oldest cliche in the world when TV brothers start referring to each other like biological brothers, but he was the oldest, and somebody I looked up to and learned from a great deal about life," says Livingston.

Grady got his big break at the age of 13 when he was cast as a mouseketeer on "The Mickey Mouse Club," but he was best known for playing one of Fred MacMurray's sons on the

Thousand Oaks, Calif. (AP) — Don Grady, who was one of television's most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas on the long-running 1960s hit "My Three Sons," died Wednesday. He was 68.

Livingston said Grady had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. But the exact cause and place of death were not immediately clear.

"It's the oldest cliche in the world when TV brothers start referring to each other like biological brothers, but he was the oldest, and somebody I looked up to and learned from a great deal about life," Livingston said.

Born in San Diego as Don Louis Agrati, Grady had a brief stint singing and dancing on "The Mickey Mouse Club" starting at age 13.

But he was best known by far

Larry the Cable Guy vs. 'The Cable Guy'

Pixar fans everywhere are revving their engines at the release of "Cars 2." And returning to the role of Mater, the dilapidated tow truck, is everyone's favorite redneck comic (no, not Jeff Foxworthy). We are talking, of course, about sleeveless sensation Larry the Cable Guy.

Poor cable guys of the world. Between Larry and Jim Carrey's character in the 1996 dark comedy "The Cable Guy," it seems as though they're all portrayed as either blue-collar slobs or homicidal maniacs (we have it on good authority that several are not). But since Larry the Cable Guy and Jim Carrey's Cable Guy are the two most prominent icons of that noble profession, they will now battle it out for the title of bestest cable guy of them all.

Get cable ready. Get TV set. Go!

My Three Sons Celebrates 50 and Ernie Gets a Big Role

Here’s something you probably haven’t heard anybody say in along, long time—it’s a big week for Barry Livingston. Yes, that BarryLivingston, the one who played the adopted brother Ernie on My Three Sons.Today marks the 50th anniversary of the premiere of the series that made him ahousehold name and he’s got a big movie coming out this weekend.

Now, you might be asking yourself, “Which one was Ernie?”

He was the nerdy one. He wasn’t the dreamy older brotherRobbie (that was Don Grady) and he wasn’t the kind of everyman-ish brother Chip(played by his real-life sib Stanley Livingston). But being one of TV’s mostfamous geeks doesn’t seem to have slowed him down a bit.

Since My Three Sons ended, all the TV brothers have gone onto do some interesting things. Don wrote the theme song to The Phil DonahueShow.

[DVD Review] Giggle, Giggle, Quack

A cute bit of fun for the kiddies, this collection of stories based on the work of Doreen Cronin is harmless entertainment for all ages. The DVD, part of the award-winning “Scholastic Storybook Treasures” series, consists of five stories by Cronin, three of which feature that mischievous feathered imp Duck.

Duck follows in the footsteps of other famous fowls like Donald and Daffy, using his cleverness to get his own way. In fact, Duck’s voice is so similar to Donald Duck’s, it’s a wonder Disney hasn’t complained. Duck’s perpetual opponent is the hard-working but easily outwitted Farmer Brown. Brown is to Duck what Ranger Smith is to Yogi Bear, or Officer Dibble is to Top Cat, or zookeeper Stanley Livingston is to Tennessee Tuxedo.

In the first story, “Giggle, Giggle, Quack”, Duck takes advantage when Farmer Brown goes on vacation, leaving his unsuspecting brother Bob in charge.

Party Favors: Totally Rad

  • Quick Stop
Concord, Nh - The Rad Girls prove that women can be out of control without beating each other senseless. The trio of Ramona Ca$h, Munchie and Darling Clementine are in the midst of their third season of mayhem on MavTV. How could I refuse a chance to talk women who figured out how to give themselves bikini waxes using a car bumper?

Ouch. The trio called the Party Favors hotline from various parts of the Southwest including the lonely highway from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Munchie swore they were just in a convenience store that seemed a location from The House of a 1,000 Corpses. Please excuse me if I attribute a quote to the wrong member since the conversation moved fast and furious.

The outrageous series wasn’t always on MavTV. Clementine explained, “We had a really fun run on Fuse. We got a lot of fans. They were like,

I admit, I went into Jj Abrams’ reboot of Star Trek (Paramount, Rated PG-13, Blu-Ray-$39.99 Srp) not wanting to like it, based on my less than enthusiastic view of Abrams’ previous work and a healthy level of fondness for Trek (when it was done right - not in the crap Berman/Braga/Voyager/Enterprise/latter-day films era).

My Three Sons: Tune In to a Live Cast Reunion -- Today!

For fans of classic television, there's a unique opportunity for you to listen to, and perhaps even talk to, three members of the Douglas family from My Three Sons!

The beloved sitcom initially revolved around widower Steve Douglas (Fred MacMurray) and his three boys; Mike (Tim Considine), Robbie (Don Grady), and Chip (Stanley Livingston). They were all kept in line by grumpy Uncle Bub (William Frawley), the boy's maternal grandfather.

Bub eventually moves to Ireland because Frawley was supposedly too ill to be insured and had to be let go. Thankfully, Bub's brother Charley (William Demarest) steps in to take his place.

Around the same time, Mike gets married and moves away. Soonafter, Steve adopts Chip's young orphan friend, Ernie (Barry Livingston), and there were three sons in the house (and opening credits) once again.

My Three Sons ran for an amazing 380 episodes and 12 seasons. It's also one
