Bruce Willis Stepping Away From Acting Following Aphasia Diagnosis

https://variety.com/2022/film/news/bruce-willis-retiring-acting-apashia-1235219017/

Sad to hear this. This condition sounds like hell.

Willis was one of my favorite actors as a teen. I probably saw the first three Die Hard films a total of fifty times.

The Dark Past (1948)


William Holden plays a bad guy who escapes prison and, along with his gang, takes hostage a few people including a shrink, Lee J. Cobb.

Holden has some psychological problems, which Cobb tries to cure while he is being held hostage

I agree with Eddie Muller: everything is done well except the crappy script

General Discussion / nice piece on Frayling
« on: May 30, 2021, 01:02:31 PM »
I just discovered this 2013 interview/article on Frayling

"Like many popular artists, Leone also wanted to be regarded as a serious artist, and passionately craved the respect of intellectuals. Enter the white knight. In the English-speaking world at least, no one has done more than Christopher Frayling to make Sergio Leone a name to drop in cinephile circles."


https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/features/how-west-was-won-1036.html


Among the interesting revelations: Frayling's manuscript for STDWD was double as long as what was publishd. And he says "I think that by the end of this year I'm finally going to be Leoned out ... unless some publisher is willing to do the 'Director's Cut' of the biography." (Thankfully, Frayling was not "Leoned out" - he did subsequently publish the OUATITW book  :))
