Irving Thalberg: Q&A with Mark Vieira

 

Thalberg & Shearer

 

Entertainment blogger, Andre Soares has a revealing question and answer session with Irving Thalberg biographer, Mark A. Vieira on his site, The Alternative Film Guide. Here is a snipet:

 

“Author and photographer Mark A. Vieira, who’s been a friend for a number of years, has recently written no less than two books on Irving G. Thalberg, the young MGM mogul whose high-quality productions earned him both a reputation as Hollywood’s “Boy Wonder” and a special place in Oscar history as the name attached to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences‘ Memorial Award given to “creative producers whose bodies of work reflect a consistently high quality of motion picture production.” Thalberg even inspired a F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, the unfinished The Last Tycoon.”

The Directors and the Closet

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

Todd Holland, Don Roos, gay actors, and the closet

 

Todd Holland

 

Blogger and entertainment writer, Andre Soares of the Alternative Film Guide, writes about the recent Outfest statements by directors Todd Holland and Don Roos, on whether gay actors should stay “in the closet.” A brief snippet is included here. To read the entire article, please click on the link below.

 

“First, openly gay film director Todd Holland (right) is accused of telling non-100% hetero performers to keep their sexuality hidden in the closet. Several days later, another openly gay film director, Don Roos, was reportedly even more blatant about the idea of keeping actors hanging in the closet. Adding insult to injury, those statements were made at a film festival named Outfest, Los Angeles’ annual gay & lesbian cinema smorgasbord.”

Saving Marriage

 

 

Produced and directed by John Henning and Mike Roth

 

When Massachusetts becomes the first state to recognize gay marriage, a constitutional amendment immediately emerges that would take that right away. Now, seasoned lobbyists and rookie activists are in the battle of their lives. The holy grail of gay rights is within reach, and their fight to save marriage will change forever how people – including them — view same-sex relationships. Civil rights history begins a new chapter in Massachusetts, and Saving Marriage is there on the scene as the drama unfolds.
