Did You Know?
Brave Women + Bad Haircuts = Great Movies. Having your hair cut as a leading lady with cameras rolling can register anywhere from daunting to traumatic. Only a few very confident actresses can carry it off. Most recently, Anne Hathaway received critical acclaim for her role in the film version of Les Miserables. Playing Fantine, a single mother who has fallen on hard times, Ms. Hathaway is forced to sell her hair to make ends meet for her daughter and herself. When the audience is seeing Anne's haircut on film, it was actually happening. Moments she describes as a mixture of her true emotions and acting. 

 

Preceeding Hathaway in dramatic tonsure scenes was Vanessa Redgrave, whose portrayal of Guinevere in the 1967  film Camelot called for her long lustrous locks to be shorn as she, the spouse of King Arthur, entered a nunnery to atone for her romantic liason with Lancelot. Redgrave insisted on parting with her tresses on camera for as she put it, "the reality of the thing."

 

Decades earlier in 1948, Swedish beauty Ingrid Bergman set the bar high for on-screen shearing  as she was  transformed from the Maid of Orleans with a bob more fitting for the title role of Joan of Arc.
When Indie Movies Meet Mainstream Films
These creative worlds collide more often than you may think as today's actors and actresses nimbly jump from back and forth from one catagory to another. Louise Fletcher is one example.  Having gained international prominence for several film and television roles, Fletcher won an Acadamy Award for the unforgettable Nurse Rachett the 1975 feature film, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest . On the small screen she is best-known to television audiences for her recurring role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine during the 1993 season. MoviesAndMore.tv watchers can see Louise Fletcher cast as the wise and loving grandmother in the Indie film Clipping Adam. Check Coming Attractons for dates and times to enjoy this inspirational story of faith and family. 

 

Supporting player Angelo Reyes is another artist who is making his mark both in mainstream and indie productions. Ben Afflick's widely acclaimed 2012 Argo featured this versatile actor who may also be seen as the tough guy enforcer in the indie film Bill Collector . Now being shown on MoviesAndMore.tv, find out via Coming Attractions when you can catch Bill Collector  this week..

Star Turn
This week MoviesAndMore.tv is pleased to feature a Frank Sinatra trilogy. One of the best-loved and most versatile performers of all time, Frank Sinatra was born in Hoboken New Jersey. His career blossomed and for more than a decade, his films and recordings were consistantly chart-toppers. Then, in the early 1950's Sinatra's career began to slide. Realizing that a meaty part would put him back on top, Sinatra convinced Harry Cohn, then the head of Columbia Pictures, to cast him as Private Maggio in the film, From Here to Eternity.   It was precisely the career boost Sinatra needed. The film went on to win eight Acadamy Awards, with Sinatra taking the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. By the mid-1960's Frank Sinatra career was again skyrocketing. He went went on to win a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, star in several film hits and garner platinum for his vocal stylings. Sinatra capped his career with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, awarded to him in 1985 by President Ronald Reagan.
 
Many memorable quotes are attributed to Frank Sinatra, including this one: "I'm for anything that gets you through the night...be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels". This quote led to a special Sinatra edition of the Tennessee whisky.
 
The MoviesAndMore.tv Frank Sinatra trilogy includes three of Ol' Blue Eyes' best;  musical 'Till The Clouds Roll By,  the film noir Suddenly and what many call Frank Sinatra's greatest dramatic role,  Man With the Golden Arm. Check Coming Attractions for dates and times.
