“The Guts, Gags and Glory of a Lot of Wonderful Guys!”

— say, what kind of movie is this, anyway?

Action movies about combat are now mostly about soldiers that fight like killing machines, or stories of battle with a strong political axe to grind. WW2 changed perceptions completely, when a mostly civilian army did the fighting. With the cessation of hostilities combat pictures tapered off quickly, and Hollywood gave the subject a break for several years.

R.I.P. William Self

William Self, the former actor turned producer and head of 20th Century Fox TV for 15 years, passed away Monday night at UCLA Medical Center after suffering a heart attack last week. He was 89. Under his tenure, the studio produced Peyton Place, Batman, and M*A*S*H and other classic TV shows from the 1960s and 1970s. The Los Angeles Times has a good obit here. What isn't there was his love of Old Hollywood. As one of his friends emailed me, "I knew Bill for 24 years. He was wholly unlike most producers: modest, quiet, good sense of humor. And he had a true love for the business. He played tennis with Chaplin, was close friends with Fred Astaire, Spencer Tracy, and almost every other name of old Hollywood. He could tell great stories of his times with Howard Hawks. He was not only a good producer, but a great guy.

Scenes We Love: The Thing From Another World

Scenes We Love: The Thing From Another World
John W. Campbell, Jr.'s 1938 seminal science-fiction/horror novella, Who Goes There?, has been adapted twice for the big screen, once, loosely, in 1951 as The Thing from Another World and the second time more faithfully in 1982 as The Thing (a.k.a. John Carpenter's The Thing). While the second adaptation relied heavily on state-of-the-art practical effects, heavy on the body horror, blood, and gore (along with claustrophobia and paranoia, of course), producer and ghost-director Howard Hawks (Rio Bravo, Red River, The Big Sleep, His Girl Friday) structured The Thing from Another World as a moody, atmospheric horror film, relying primarily on suspense, tension, and audience imagination to create a memorable theatrical experience.

Set at a research station in the Arctic (as opposed to Antarctica in Campbell's novella and Carpenter's 1982 adaptation), The Thing from Another World centers on the first encounter between humanity and an alien from outer space. We
