Dear Movie Lover,
SCORSESE'S WOLF OF WALL STREET

Wolfe of Wall Street, from producer Red Garnite Pictures, is based on the memoir of a 1990's stock swindler. The fim stars
Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill.

TEDDY ROOSEVELT TOME
BULLY PULPIT BY DORIS KEARNS GOODMAN
HEADED FOR BIG SCREEN AT DREAMWORKS
 

 
The studio has closed a preemptive deal by acquiring the film rights to the American historical drama by Doris Kearns Goodman.
 
The Bully Pulpit, which will be released on Nov 5th by Simon & Schuster, tells the story of longtime friends Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft who became bitter political opponents. Their story culminates in the 1912 Presidential election when both are defeated by Woodrow Wilson, with Taft running as the Republican incumbent and Roosevelt campaigning as head of the Bullmoose Party.
 
According to Steven Spielberg who collaborated with Kearns on
Lincoln, based in part on Goodwin's Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, "Doris has once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in battle for power and friendship."
 
CANDIDATES FOR THE ALL-TIME BADDEST BEARDS

OPRAH WINFREY AUCTIONS OFF
ANTIQUES, ART AND MORE
 

 
Describing the auction as her way of cleaning house, Oprah Winfrey considers it part of a makeover for her 42-acre Montecito mansion. "The gilded mirrors, marble urns, the lavish carpets and pastel palette---it was all very grand. But it wasn't very true to myself, the star explained.
 
Kaminski Auctions hosted the event on November 2nd at the Santa Barbara Polo Club and Raquet Club in Carpinteria California. Proceeds from the auction are earmarked for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund, which is dedicated to helping female graduates from the media mogul's South African school attend college.

On-Screen Eating ---
The Fab Five Food Scenes
See If You Agree! 
Sean Penn recently praised Julia Roberts "sexy on-screen eating" during a seven minute ode to her"otherworldly talent". He was one of the many big stars who presented at the 2013 Hollywood FilmAwards recently, bestowing this year's Supporting Actress Award to Julia Roberts for her work in  August: Osage County.
 
 

This culinary accolade started the thought process about which of the many eating scenes in recent films deserved to be singled out. Here are our picks for the five best. There are many more, to be sure. But these five tickle our fancy, right now.
 
INGLORIOUS BASTARDS: THE MOST CHILLING FOOD SCENE

Quentin Tarantino does an achingly patient slow zoom on Melanie Laurent's face as she realizes she is about to have caffe and strudel with the man who had her family machine-gunned. Christopher Waltz, as Goebbels, says, "attendez de la crème" as the camera smooches the cream, then the strudel, which Waltz declares to be "not too terrible" before extinguishing his cigarette into his half-eaten portion.
 
BABETTE'S FEAST: THE MOST ENDEARING FOOD SCENE

Two sisters---daughters of a stern but kindly clergyman who live in a remote Danish village, take in Babette, a refugee from the French Revolution. She prepares and hosts an extravagant feast after winning the lottery. The normally pious village gets to indulge in this epic meal. Viewers can only wish to be guests at that bountiful table!
 
LADY AND THE TRAMP: THE MOST ROMANTIC FOOD SCENE

This is the scene, what a beautiful scene! Lovestruck Lady and Tramp's
pasta-eating leads to a kiss is one of the best-loved movie smooches.
YUM!
 
FRIED GREEN TOMATOS: THE MOST "WE GOT AWAY WITH IT" FOOD SCENE

This 1991 film is all about friendship and comfort food at the Whistle stop Café where they, naturally, serve fried green tomatoes and some infamous barbecue.
 
WHEN HARRY MET SALLY: THE MOST HILARIOUS FOOD SCENE

Even if you've never seen the movie, you know about this scene in Katz's Deli, when Meg Ryan fakes an orgasm and Rob Reiner's mother (yup!) utters the line, "I'll have what she's having."
 
Hot, tart, cool or sweet, these scenes and these films are tantalizing!

LA'S LATEST REAL ESTATE TREND: MOATS!
 
From the Middle Ages straight to Mulholland Drive and the Hills of Beverly, water feature security moats make guarded gates passé.
 
It's the latest Los Angeles trend in extreme real estate. Less upkeep than thoroughbred guard dogs and lots less expensive than security forces, moats are decorative and effective modes of maintaining star-class privacy. For instance:
 

Giselle Bundchen and Tom Brady's French-style Richard Landry-designed chateau has a castle-like moat where koi fish stand in for the crocodiles. A stone bridge leads to the main entry but unlike
medieval versions, this one doesn't retract.
 

Hot Hollywood architect Dan Brunn recently completed this Venice Beach where abundant right angles extend to a street-level "demi-moat" that partially surrounds the three-story residence.

See you on MoviesAndMore.tv every day. Where the films are always fabulous and always free. On desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
