JOHN WAYNE La l茅gende


John WAYNE: Consid茅r茅 comme l鈥檃m茅ricain patriote et h茅roique,聽

 

JOHN WAYNE

john wayne

john wayne

Marion Mitchell Morrison, dit聽John Wayne, n茅 le聽26mai1907聽脿聽Winterset聽dans l鈥Iowa, aux聽脡tats-Unis, et mort le聽11juin1979聽脿Los Angeles, est un聽acteur,聽r茅alisateur聽et聽producteuram茅ricain.

S鈥檌l a jou茅 dans des聽films policiers, des聽films de guerre聽et quelques聽com茅dies romantiques, c鈥檈st dans ses nombreux聽westernsque John Wayne s鈥檈st r茅ellement impos茅, sous la direction de deux r茅alisateurs particuli猫rement聽:聽John Ford聽(La Chevauch茅e fantastique,聽Le Massacre de Fort Apache,聽La Charge h茅ro茂que,聽Rio Grande,聽La Prisonni猫re du d茅sert聽ou encore聽L鈥橦omme qui tua Liberty Valance) et聽Howard Hawks聽(La Rivi猫re rouge,聽Rio Bravo,聽El Dorado聽ou聽Rio Lobo). Il tourna 茅galement plusieurs films avec聽Henry Hathaway聽dont聽Cent dollars pour un sh茅rif, qui lui valut en 1970 l鈥檜nique聽Oscar聽de sa carri猫re.

En 1960, il passa derri猫re la cam茅ra pour r茅aliser une fresque historique d鈥檈nvergure,聽Alamo, relatant les derniers jours de聽Davy Crockett聽et ses compagnons lors de la聽guerre d鈥檌nd茅pendance du Texas. Huit ans plus tard, il cor茅alisa聽Les B茅rets verts, film engag茅 justifiant l鈥檌ntervention am茅ricaine au聽Vi锚t Nam. Ses deux r茅alisations refl猫tent l鈥檈ngagement personnel de John Wayne, r茅publicain et ardent patriote

Class茅聽13e聽plus grande star de l茅gende聽par l鈥American Film Institute聽en 1999, John Wayne est certainement un des acteurs les plus repr茅sentatifs du聽western, une incarnation 脿 lui seul de l鈥橝m茅rique conqu茅rante. Surnomm茅 芦聽The Duke聽禄 (le Duc), il reste toujours aujourd鈥檋ui, gr芒ce 脿 ses films, le symbole d鈥檜ne certaine virilit茅. Il interpr茅ta ce r么le d鈥檋omme viril, dur, solitaire et un peu machiste tout au long de sa carri猫re, ce qui lui fit d茅clarer聽: 芦聽J鈥檃i jou茅 John Wayne dans tous mes films et 莽a m鈥檃 plut么t pas mal r茅ussi聽禄.

Enfance et scolarit茅

Glendale聽aujourd鈥檋ui, o霉 v茅cut John Wayne de 1916 脿 1924.

N茅 dans une famille modeste et presbyt茅rienne, son p猫re est Clyde Leonard Morrison (1884鈥1937), d鈥檃scendance聽irlandaise聽et聽茅cossaise聽et fils d鈥檜n v茅t茅ran de la聽Guerre de S茅cession, Marion Mitchell Morrison (1845鈥1915). Sa m猫re est Mary Alberta Brown (1885鈥1970), d鈥檕rigine irlandaise. En d茅cembre 1912 naquit son fr猫re Robert. Ses parents chang猫rent alors son identit茅 en Marion Mitchell Morrison (toutefois il a souvent affirm茅 que son vrai nom aurait 茅t茅 Marion Michael Morrison).

John Wayne

John Wayne

Peu apr猫s son p猫re eut des l茅sions aux poumons et fut contraint de 芦聽changer d鈥檃ir聽禄 pour sa sant茅. Il mit en vente sa pharmacie et acheta une maison d茅labr茅e pr猫s du聽d茅sert des Mojaves, 脿 Palmdale, et des terres o霉 il d茅cida de faire pousser du ma茂s. Sa femme et ses enfants vinrent le rejoindre en 1914. 芦聽Je crois que c鈥櫭﹖ait une mis茅rable baraque. Ni gaz, ni 茅lectricit茅, ni eau courante. […] Nous 茅tions absolument coup茅s du monde.聽禄 C鈥檈st pour aider son p猫re qu鈥檌l apprit 脿 se servir d鈥檜n fusil et 脿 monter 脿 cheval. 芦聽Je suis tr猫s 脿 l鈥檃ise en selle, mais je ne suis pas amoureux des chevaux. Ils sont seulement utiles dans une ferme ou pour tourner un film.聽禄

Lass茅e du climat rude et de la pauvret茅 de la famille, Mary Morrison poussa son mari 脿 tout vendre. Ils partirent 脿聽Glendale, faubourg de聽Los Angeles, en 1916, o霉 le p猫re trouva un emploi dans une pharmacie5. Ils d茅m茅nag猫rent r茅guli猫rement, s鈥檌nstallant 脿 chaque fois dans une maison plus petite. Marion devint vite un bon 茅l猫ve, lisant beaucoup 脿 la biblioth猫que municipale. 脌 douze ans, il encha卯na, en parall猫le des cours, des petits boulots 聽: livreur de journaux, livreur, ouvreur du cin茅ma Palace.

Son premier vrai souvenir d鈥檜n film est probablement聽Les Quatre Cavaliers de l鈥橝pocalypse聽avec聽Rudolph Valentino6. Gr芒ce 脿 son job d鈥檕uvreur, il pouvait acc茅der 脿 un tr猫s grand nombre de films, dont des westerns avec聽Harry Carey聽ou des films d鈥檃ventures avec聽Douglas Fairbanks. Il se lia d鈥檃miti茅 avec聽Bob Steele, future star de westerns des ann茅es 1920. C鈥檈st aussi d猫s cette 茅poque que Marion fut surnomm茅 芦聽Big Duke聽禄 en r茅f茅rence 脿 son chien, 芦聽Little Duke聽禄, qu鈥檌l emmenait partout avec lui. Au coll猫ge, il appartenait aux clubs sportifs et culturels, et fit du th茅芒tre, non comme acteur, mais comme accessoiriste. Ses rares performances d鈥檃cteur ne furent pas convaincantes, trop p茅trifi茅 qu鈥檌l 茅tait par le trac

Sportif et accessoiriste

En 1924, l鈥Universit茅 de Californie du Sud聽d茅cida de recruter les meilleurs 茅l茅ments des clubs alentours pour sa propre 茅quipe de football, les聽Trojans, dont Marion Morrison. Pouvant faire ses 茅tudes gratuitement gr芒ce 脿 une bourse sportive, il fut aussi initi茅 脿 une fraternit茅, Sigma Chi8. Il rencontra peu apr猫s la vedette聽Tom Mix, qui assistait 脿 tous les matchs de l鈥櫭﹒uipe. Appr茅ciant la carrure du jeune homme, il lui offrit un r么le dans un film qu鈥檌l devait tourner quelques mois apr猫s.

Entre-temps, lors d鈥檜n weekend 脿 Balboa, il fut victime d鈥檜n accident de bodysurf聽: il se d茅chira un muscle de l鈥櫭﹑aule apr猫s une chute qui le fit entrer en contact avec le fond, tenta vainement quelque temps de continuer le football mais fut 茅vinc茅 de l鈥櫭﹒uipe, avec toutefois un dipl么me de la F茅d茅ration de football. Il n鈥檡 joua plus jamais. L鈥櫭﹖茅 au studio, la star m茅prisa le jeune Morrison, qui fut toutefois engag茅, mais comme accessoiriste.

La rencontre avec聽John Ford聽fut d茅cisive pour la carri猫re de John Wayne, m锚me si c鈥檈st聽Raoul Walshqui lui confia son premier grand r么le
.

Apr猫s une figuration sur le film聽The drop Kick, il fut appel茅 sur le tournage de聽Maman de mon c艙ur, dirig茅 par聽John Ford, r茅alisateur d茅j脿 respect茅 脿聽Hollywood. Celui-ci d茅cida un jour de provoquer gentiment le jeune footballeur Morrison en le faisant se mettre en position, puis en lui faisant mordre la poussi猫re. La pareille que lui rendit aussit么t le jeune homme le fit grimper dans l鈥檈stime du r茅alisateur.

JOHN FORD

Il l鈥檈mbaucha d鈥檃illeurs comme acteur sur son film suivant,聽La Maison du bourreau, dans un petit r么le de paysan condamn茅 par un juge.聽John Ford聽le fit d鈥檃bord renvoyer 脿 cause de son comportement (il fut pris d鈥檜n fou rire), puis le rappela et tourna la sc猫ne.

脌 partir de 1928, il d茅cida de ne plus aller 脿 l鈥檜niversit茅. N鈥檃yant plus la bourse accord茅e gr芒ce 脿 l鈥櫭﹒uipe de football, il ne pouvait s鈥檕ffrir les cours. Il retourna 脿 la聽Fox聽et devint accessoiriste pendant trois ann茅es. 芦聽J鈥檃i 茅t茅 menuisier, man艙uvre, 茅lectricien, charpentier, peintre et tapissier. J鈥檃i tout fait, je connais tous les probl猫mes du m茅tier et les trucs pour les r茅soudre.聽禄 Il travailla alors de nouveau avec聽John Ford聽et d鈥檃utres r茅alisateurs, et fit un peu de figuration, notamment dans聽Words and music,聽Rough Romance聽ou聽Cheer up and smile. Dans聽Salute, il se confronta pour une des premi猫res fois 脿 un autre 茅tudiant-footballeur voulant participer au film de Ford,聽Wardell Bond. Dans聽Hommes sans femmes聽il fut engag茅 comme cascadeur, mais pay茅 au tarif d鈥檜n accessoiriste

Le faux d茅part

Le cin茅ma parlant avait rendu difficile la r茅alisation de westerns. Le r茅alisateur聽Raoul Walsh聽prouva le contraire en cor茅alisant聽In Old Arizona聽qui fut un gros succ猫s. La聽Fox聽voulut alors lui confier la r茅alisation d鈥檜n grand聽western, au budget d鈥檜n million de dollars. Des acteurs de th茅芒tre furent engag茅s 聽:聽Tyrone Power聽et聽Ian Keith. Pour le r么le principal, le choix s鈥檕rienta vers聽Gary Cooper, mais celui-ci 茅tait indisponible car sous contrat avecSamuel Goldwyn. Walsh remarqua alors par hasard cet accessoiriste qui d茅chargeait un camion, Duke Morrison, puis d茅cida de lui faire faire un bout d鈥檈ssai. Le producteur d茅l茅gu茅 et le r茅alisateur d茅cid猫rent juste apr猫s de lui faire changer de nom. Par admiration pour le g茅n茅ral聽Anthony Wayne, on lui trouva un nom. Et tout b锚tement parce que 芦聽John聽禄 faisait Am茅ricain et simple, on lui donna ce pr茅nom. Ainsi Duke Morrison devint John Wayne, sans m锚me avoir 茅t茅 consult茅.

Le tournage de聽La Piste des g茅ants聽commen莽a 脿聽Yuma. Wayne fut victime d鈥檜ne dysenterie qui l鈥檕bligea 脿 un r茅gime et lui fit perdre trois semaines de tournage. Le film fut tourn茅 en70聽mm, pr猫s de vingt ans avant le聽CinemaScope. La premi猫re mondiale eut lieu le 24 octobre 1930 dans un grand cin茅ma de聽Hollywood聽et la soci茅t茅 de production fit faire 脿 sa nouvelle vedette une promotion mensong猫re, lui inventant une nouvelle biographie.

Le film fut un 茅chec notoire et la cons茅quence pour John Wayne fut de redevenir un acteur inconnu, sous contrat, 脿聽75聽dollars聽la semaine. De plus, il se f芒cha quelque temps avec聽John Ford

Les ann茅es 1930聽: entre 茅checs et nouveau d茅part

Un acteur de s茅ries B

Duke fut engag茅 en 1930 pour tourner聽Girls demand excitement, une com茅die musicale dirig茅e par un chor茅graphe de聽New York聽parfaitement inexp茅riment茅, avec聽Virginia Cherrill. Puis avec聽Loretta Young, ce fut聽Three girls lost. Pr茅sent茅 le聽1er聽mai 1931, le film fut r茅sum茅 par un critique par聽: 芦聽Tout cela est assez idiot聽!聽禄 La聽Fox聽ne renouvela pas le contrat de John Wayne, qui fut embauch茅 par聽Harry Cohn, grand patron de la聽Columbia, qui lui fit tourner un autre film sans int茅r锚t,聽Men are like that. Ces films permirent toutefois 脿 Wayne de se faire un public. Mais une brouille avec Cohn lui fit perdre son statut de vedette, et il devint un second r么le, au profit de聽Tim McCoy聽notamment. Il n鈥檕ublia jamais cette offense et, devenu une grande vedette, refusa toujours de tourner pour la聽Columbia.

La mode 茅tait aux films d鈥檃viation. John Wayne, qui venait de prendre un agent, Al Kingston, tourna聽L鈥檕mbre d鈥檜n aigle. C鈥檈st sur ce tournage qu鈥檌l rencontra聽Yakima Canutt, qui allait devenir l鈥檜n des cascadeurs les plus connus du cin茅ma am茅ricain. Il encha卯na avec聽Hurricane express聽o霉 il interpr茅tait un aviateur d茅cid茅 脿 venger son p猫re, tu茅 dans un accident de chemin de fer. Le 24 juin 1933, il se maria enfin 脿 celle qu鈥檌l aimait depuis des ann茅es, Josie (Josephine Saenz).

cette derni猫re lui permit d鈥檕btenir un petit r么le, celui d鈥檜n boxeur, dans聽La Vie de Jimmy Dolan聽avec聽Douglas Fairbanks. Al Kingston arrangea ensuite un entretien avec聽Trem Carr聽et聽Leo Ostrow聽qui venaient de fonder la soci茅t茅Monogram Pictures聽et Duke se vit offrir un contrat de huit westerns par an, pay茅s 2500 $. Il tourna la m锚me ann茅e聽Les Cavaliers du destin聽o霉 il fut un cow-boy chantant. Exasp茅r茅 par cette exp茅rience humiliante, il d茅clara plus tard que sa chansonnette en play-back lui donnait l鈥檌mpression 芦聽d鈥櫭猼re une foutue p茅dale.聽禄 Pourtant cette 茅poque laissa 脿 Wayne de bons souvenirs, il d茅clara plus tard 聽: 芦聽D鈥檃vril 脿 septembre on travaillait comme des dingues pour fournir de la pellicule aux petites salles qui achetaient la production en bloc et d鈥檃vance. Puis, 脿 la fin de l鈥櫭﹖茅, je filais chasser la palombe. Ensuite c鈥櫭﹖ait la saison des oies sauvages et des canards. […] Oui c鈥櫭﹖ait le bon temps

De nouvelles exp茅riences navrantes

Mari茅 et 脿 pr茅sent p猫re, John Wayne refusa un nouveau contrat de聽24聽000聽$聽propos茅 par聽Herbert J. Yates聽pour聽Monogram Pictures, las de vivre loin de sa famille et de ses enfants. Il s鈥檈ssaya sans succ猫s 脿 la gestion d鈥檜ne agence immobili猫re. Puis, sous le nom de Duke Morrison, devint boxeur et fit quelques combats dans le聽Nevada19. Encore une fois, sans grand succ猫s. R茅solu 脿 revenir au cin茅ma, il tenta de se faire remarquer par聽Cecil B. DeMille,

cecil_b_de_mille

cecil_b_de_mille

en vain. Son ami聽Paul Fix聽lui proposa alors une pi猫ce de th茅芒tre,聽Red Sky At Evening, avecSally Blane. D鈥檃bord enthousiasm茅, il d茅chanta assez vite, se rappelant ses exp茅riences navrantes de jeunesse. La seule et unique repr茅sentation fut un d茅sastre 聽: ayant vid茅 une bouteille de whisky pour se donner du courage, Wayne entra sur sc猫ne ivre, oubliant ses r茅pliques et demandant聽: 芦聽O霉 suis-je?聽禄

Il reprit alors le chemin des studios et tourna pour聽Universal聽quelques films o霉 il abandonnait son personnage de cow-boy. Entre 1936 et 1937, il tourna ainsi聽Les Pirates de la mer,聽Conflic聽o霉 il joua un boxeur,聽I Cover de war聽dans le r么le d鈥檜n reporter, et聽L鈥檌dole de la foule. Produits 脿 co没ts r茅duits, ces films furent des 茅checs cuisants. Son public fid猫le ne voulait de John Wayne qu鈥檌l ne f没t qu鈥檜n cow-boy, sachant se battre et manier son pistolet. Il revint alors vers聽Herbert J. Yates聽et tourna d鈥檃utres films m茅diocres, dont certains ne sortirent qu鈥檜ne fois John Wayne devenu une star.

芦聽Sauv茅聽禄 par John Ford

脌 l鈥櫭﹖茅 1937,聽John Ford聽invita Wayne 脿 bord de son bateau, l鈥Araner, et lui donna 脿 lire un sc茅nario de聽Dudley Nichols,聽La Chevauch茅e fantastique, pour avoir son avis quant 脿 l鈥檃cteur qui pourrait endosser le premier r么le. Vex茅, il proposa n茅anmoins聽Lloyd Nolan. Ce n鈥檈st que le lendemain que Ford lui demanda聽: 芦聽Idiot, tu penses que tu ne pourrais pas le jouer le r么le聽?聽禄 Mais les producteurs envisageaient plut么t des vedettes confirm茅es 聽:聽Gary Cooper聽et聽Marl猫ne Dietrich.

Le r茅alisateur r茅ussit finalement 脿 imposer Wayne et聽Claire Trevor, ainsi que d鈥檃utres acteurs exp茅riment茅s, tels que聽Thomas Mitchell聽ou聽George Bancroft.

Le film fut tourn茅 d鈥檕ctobre 脿 d茅cembre 1938, avec un budget modeste. Quelques sc猫nes furent film茅es 脿聽Monument Valley, le reste en聽Californie.聽Yakima Canutt聽doubla John Wayne, notamment lors de la grande attaque de la diligence. Ce dernier fut tout au long du tournage tyrannis茅 par le r茅alisateur, Ford le reprenant sans cesse sur sa fa莽on de marcher, de jouer, de parler. 芦聽Je l鈥檃urais tu茅. Il me mettait en rage. Mais Ford savait ce qu鈥檌l faisait. Il savait que j鈥檃vais honte d鈥櫭猼re un cow-boy de westerns de s茅ries B et de me retrouver l脿, en compagnie de ces grandes vedettes.聽禄聽Ford offrit 脿 son acteur vedette l鈥檜ne des 芦聽plus belles entr茅es de star de l鈥檋istoire du cin茅ma聽禄, avec son fameux mouvement de cam茅ra laissant appara卯tre Ringo Kid, une selle dans une main, un fusil dans l鈥檃utre.

La Chevauch茅e fantastique聽fut un succ猫s public聽et re莽ut sept nominations aux聽Oscar du cin茅ma. Les cons茅quences furent nombreuses 聽: le聽western聽comme genre de cin茅ma fut r茅habilit茅 (le critique Frank S.

聽John Wayne dans聽Les Naufrageurs des mers du sud, de聽Cecil B. DeMille, en 1942.

Le succ猫s international de聽La Chevauch茅e fantastique聽fit de John Wayne une star, aupr猫s du public et des r茅alisateurs. Son salaire fut multipli茅 par trois, puis par onze en 1946, et il devint alors un des acteurs les plus chers avec聽Gary Cooper聽ou聽Clark Gable. Il retrouva le r茅alisateur聽Raoul Walsh聽en 1940 pour un western sur fond de guerre civile,聽L鈥橢scadron noir, avec聽Claire Trevor. La m锚me ann茅e, il fut engag茅 pour incarner un Am茅ricain accueillant des r茅fugi茅s allemands fuyant le r茅gime nazi dans聽Les D茅racin茅s, et retrouva聽John Ford聽pour聽Les Hommes de la mer. Tourn茅 rapidement et pour un co没t relativement modeste, le film ne fut pas un succ猫s public. De plus, Wayne n鈥櫭﹖ait toujours pas pris au s茅rieux par le r茅alisateur qui ne le pensait pas capable de jouer des r么les plus complexes. Il tourna un dernier film cette ann茅e 1940,聽La Maison des sept p茅ch茅s, premi猫re collaboration avec聽Marl猫ne Dietrich, avec qui il s鈥檈ntendit 脿 merveille33.

Il fut contact茅 par le r茅alisateur聽Cecil B. DeMille.

Il retrouva聽Marl猫ne Dietrich聽en 1942 dans une nouvelle adaptation du roman de聽Rex Beach,聽Les 脡cumeurs,聽avec un jeune premier,聽Randolph Scott, puis dans聽La Fi猫vre de l鈥檕r noir, qui connut un accueil chaleureux de la part du public. Wayne incarna 茅galement un pilote de l鈥檃rm茅e am茅ricaine combattant les Japonais dans聽Les Tigres volants, film de propagande r茅alis茅 par聽David Miller.聽Sacramento, un nouveau western, fut choisi par John Wayne car il devait incarner un pharmacien, une mani猫re de rendre hommage 脿 son p猫re d茅c茅d茅 en 1938.

Les ann茅es suivantes, John Wayne tourna une s茅rie de films de guerre 聽:聽Quelque part en France聽de聽Jules Dassin

o霉 il incarna un pilote r茅fugi茅 en Normandie, puis聽Alerte aux marines. Aux c么t茅s d鈥櫬Anthony Quinn, il incarna un colonel am茅ricain luttant avec les r茅sistants philippins dans聽Retour aux Philippines. R茅publicain et patriote, Wayne critiqua par la suite le travail du r茅alisateur聽Edward Dmytryk, qui fut li茅 au parti communiste et figura sur la liste des聽Dix d鈥橦ollywood, ainsi que le sc茅nario. Il retrouva ensuite聽John Ford聽pour聽Les Sacrifi茅s聽– qui se d茅roule pendant la聽guerre du Pacifique聽– aux c么t茅s d鈥檜n jeune acteur,聽Robert Montgomery. Le film rapporta de l鈥檃rgent et se classa parmi les vingt plus gros succ猫s de l鈥檃nn茅e.

Entre temps, John Wayne revint au western dans聽L鈥橝mazone aux yeux verts, revenant sur sa d茅claration de ne plus jamais en tourner. Sc茅naris茅 et interpr茅t茅 par son ami聽Paul Fix, le film imposa durablement l鈥檌mage virile, nonchalante et misogyne de son personnage.

En revanche,聽King Vidor聽ne peut le diriger avec聽Hedy Lamarr聽dans聽Duel au soleil聽(1946), western lyrique et exacerb茅 finalement interpr茅t茅 par聽Gregory Peck聽et聽Jennifer Jones聽et devenu un classique. Il encha卯na par la suite quelques films pass茅s inaper莽us,聽La Femme du pionnier,聽Sans r茅serve聽avec聽Claudette Colbert聽et聽L鈥橝nge et le mauvais gar莽on. Pour faire 芦聽rentrer l鈥檃rgent聽禄, il tourna 茅galement聽Ta茂koun, de nouveau avec聽Anthony Quinn. En 1948, John Wayne, devenu une vedette importante, faisait partie des acteurs pr茅f茅r茅s du public am茅ricain, avec聽Clark Gable,聽Gary Cooper聽et聽Humphrey Bogart.

Hawks, la Cavalerie et le Pacifique

En 1947,聽John Ford聽tourna le premier volet d鈥檜ne trilogie consacr茅e 脿 la cavalerie am茅ricaine,聽Le Massacre de Fort Apache聽avec pour vedettesHenry Fonda聽et John Wayne dans un r么le d鈥檕fficier 芦聽humain et pacifiste聽禄. Tourn茅 脿聽Monument Valley聽pour un budget modeste, le film r茅unit 茅galement聽Ward Bond聽et聽Victor McLaglen. John Wayne, habitu茅 aux humeurs du r茅alisateur, fut un soutien psychologique pr茅cieux pour le jeune聽John Agar, martyris茅 par Ford48. L鈥檃ccueil public fut chaleureux. Il enchaina avec un r么le de nouveau refus茅 par聽Gary Cooper, celui de Tom Dunson dans聽La Rivi猫re rouge聽de聽Howard Hawks聽qui signait l脿 son premier western. Dans un r么le de cow-boy dur et brutal, Wayne eut pour partenaire聽Montgomery Clift聽avec qui il ne s鈥檈ntendit pas imm茅diatement. Ce film tourn茅 en ext茅rieurs fut 茅galement un grand succ猫s, rapportant plus de dix millions de dollars. Et s鈥檌l ne fut pas r茅compens茅, John Wayne impressionna聽John Ford聽qui d茅clara par la suite 脿Hawks聽: 芦聽Je ne savais pas que ce grand fils de pute pouvait jouer聽禄.

OLIVER HARDY

En 1948, il engagea 脿 nouveau John Wayne pour聽Le fils du d茅sert, film en technicolor avec聽Harry Carey Jr., tourn茅 dans la聽vall茅e de la Mort. Wayne tourna ensuite deux films,聽Le R茅veil de la sorci猫re rouge聽avec聽Gail Russell聽et聽Le Bagarreur du Kentucky聽avec聽Oliver Hardy,

L鈥檃nn茅e suivante,聽Rio Grande, suite du聽Massacre de Fort Apache, le mit en sc猫ne aux c么t茅s de聽Maureen O鈥橦araqui devint une partenaire fid猫le en m锚me temps qu鈥檜ne grande amie.

John Wayne enfila de nouveau l鈥檜niforme de l鈥檃rm茅e am茅ricaine dans trois films聽:聽Iwo Jima聽de聽Allan Dwan, pour lequel il fut nomm茅 aux Oscars56,聽Op茅ration dans le Pacifique聽puis聽Les Diables de Guadalcanal聽de聽Nicholas Ray聽(qui d茅savoua le film par la suite, au m锚me titre que Wayne qui le consid茅rait comme une 艙uvre mineure), cl么turant ainsi sa s茅rie de films en hommage aux combattants de la guerre du Pacifique.

1952-1959聽: Une incarnation de l鈥橝m茅rique 脿 l鈥櫭ヽran, un h茅ros aux multiples visages

En 1952, John Wayne tourna 脿 nouveau avec聽Maureen O鈥橦ara聽et聽John Ford. Si Ford ne peut engager le couple d鈥檃cteurs pour son adaptation de聽What Price Glory聽(qu鈥檌ls ont jou茅 sous sa direction sur sc猫ne), ils se consolent largement avec聽L鈥橦omme tranquille, tourn茅 en聽Irlande聽(terre des anc锚tres du r茅alisateur), pour un cachet d茅risoire. Le film, qui racontait le retour d鈥檜n boxeur am茅ricain dans son pays d鈥檕rigine, fut un gros succ猫s commercial dans le monde entier聽et remporta l鈥橭scar du Meilleur Film.聽Big Jim McLain, r茅alis茅 la m锚me ann茅e parEdward Ludwig聽le mettait dans la peau d鈥檜n enqu锚teur de la Commission sur les activit茅s anti-am茅ricaines au service du s茅nateur聽McCarthy.聽L鈥橦omme de bonne volont茅, r茅alis茅 en 1953 par聽Michael Curtiz聽ne remporta pas le succ猫s esp茅r茅 et orienta de nouveau John Wayne vers des films h茅ro茂ques. Sous la direction de聽William Wellman, il tourna聽Aventure dans le Grand Nord, qu鈥檌l coproduisit, et refusa un r么le principal dans聽G茅ant聽(qui fut interpr茅t茅 par聽Rock Hudson). 脡galement coproducteur de聽Hondo, l鈥檋omme du d茅sert, il fut oblig茅 de reprendre le r么le titre, la star du film聽Glenn Ford聽茅tant en d茅saccord avec le r茅alisateur, puis retrouva l鈥櫭﹒uipe de聽Aventure dans le Grand Nord聽pour un nouveau film catastrophe,聽脡crit dans le ciel. Le film fut un grand succ猫s public, nomm茅 aux聽Oscars聽(seule la musique de聽Dimitri Tiomkin聽re莽ut la r茅compense). Sa collaboration avec聽Lana Turner聽pour聽Le Renard des oc茅ans聽fut houleuse, mais il s鈥檈ntendit 脿 merveille avec聽Lauren Bacall聽sur le tournage de聽L鈥橝ll茅e sanglante, qui fut un succ猫s imm茅diat.

La Prisonni猫re du d茅sert聽a 茅t茅 d茅sign茅 plus grand western de tous les temps par l鈥American Film Institute.

Le tournage du聽Conqu茅rant聽en 1956 fut 茅prouvant65. Produit par聽Howard Hughes聽et r茅alis茅 par聽Dick Powell, il mettait en sc猫ne John Wayne dans le r么le 鈥 du chef asiatique聽Gengis Khan, avec聽Susan Hayward聽pour partenaire.

Tourn茅 pr猫s d鈥檜n site d鈥檈ssais nucl茅aires, il fut probablement 脿 l鈥檕rigine du cancer de l鈥檃cteur (et d鈥檜ne grande partie de l鈥櫭﹒uipe du film). En outre, il fut un lourd 茅chec au box-office. La m锚me ann茅e, Wayne tourna un nouveau western sous la direction de聽John Ford,聽La Prisonni猫re du d茅sert. Tourn茅 sur deux saisons (l鈥檋iver et l鈥櫭﹖茅), 脿聽Monument Valley聽notamment, le film permit 脿 John Wayne de cr茅er un personnage sombre et violent. Le film fut un 茅norme succ猫s 脿 sa sortie et plusieurs critiques lou猫rent le travail du r茅alisateur. En outre, il est aujourd鈥檋ui consid茅r茅 par l鈥American Film Institute聽comme le plus grand western de tous les temps.

En 1957, de nouveau avec聽Ford, il tourna聽L鈥檃igle vole au soleil, un film de guerre adapt茅 de la biographie du h茅ros Frank Wead, avant d鈥檈nchainer avec un film d鈥檈spionnage,聽Les espions s鈥檃musent. Mise en sc猫ne par聽Joseph von Sternberg, avec l鈥檃ctrice聽Janet Leigh, cette com茅die d鈥檈spionnage 茅tait consid茅r茅e par John Wayne comme son plus mauvais film. L鈥檃nn茅e suivante, il forma un couple 脿 l鈥櫭ヽran avec聽Sophia Loren聽dans聽La Cit茅 disparue, tourn茅 en partie en聽Italie聽par聽Henry Hathaway, puis entama le tournage du聽Barbare et la Geisha, sous la direction de聽John Huston. Les relations furent souvent tendues entre les deux hommes, et le film fut un 茅chec. Wayne fut engag茅 de nouveau par聽Howard Hawks聽pour jouer dans聽Rio Bravo, aux c么t茅s de聽Dean Martin聽et聽Rick Nelson. Construit comme l鈥檕pposition sc茅naristique du聽Train sifflera trois fois, le film fut un gros succ猫s populaire et critique. Son nouveau projet avec聽John Ford聽et聽William Holden,聽Les Cavaliers, fut difficile聽: le sc茅nario 茅tait complexe, le r茅alisateur vieillissait, des tensions intervinrent entre les soci茅t茅s de production et un cascadeur se tua sur le tournage.

Remember Aunt Clara ?? Bewitched?


Marion Lorne (August 12, 1883 鈥 May 9, 1968) was an American actress of stage, film, and television. After a career in theatre in New York and London, Lorne made her first film in 1951, and for the remainder of her life, played small roles in films and television.

Her recurring role, between 1964 and her death in 1968, as Aunt Clara in the comedy series, Bewitched (1964鈥1972) brought her widespread recognition, and for which she was posthumously awarded an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. 聽

She was born Marion Lorne MacDougall in West Pittston, Pennsylvania, a small mining town halfway between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, of Scottish and English immigrant parents. 聽While her year of birth is listed as 1885 on her tombstone, it was usually listed as 1888 when she was alive and the Social Security Death Index lists it as 1883. She studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.

Career Lorne debuted on Broadway in 1905; she also acted in London theaters, enjoying a flourishing stage career on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

In London she had her own theater, the Whitehall, where she had top billing in plays written by Walter Hackett, her husband. None of her productions at the Whitehall had runs shorter than 125 nights.

After appearing in a couple of Vitaphone shorts, including Success (1931) starring Jack Haley, she made her feature film debut in her late 60s in Strangers on a Train (1951), directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

The role was typical of the befuddled, nervous, and somewhat aristocratic matrons that she usually portrayed.

From 1952-55, Lorne was seen as perpetually confused junior high school English teacher Mrs. Gurney on Mr. Peepers. From 1957鈥58, she co-starred with Joan Caulfield in the NBC sitcom Sally in the role of an elderly widow who happens to be the co-owner of a department store. Although afraid of live television, declaring “I’m a coward when it comes to a live [television] show”, 聽she was persuaded to appear a few times to promote the film The Girl Rush with Rosalind Russell in the mid-1950s.

Between 1958鈥64, she made regular appearances on The Garry Moore Show (1958鈥64). Her last role, as Aunt Clara in Bewitched, brought Lorne her widest fame as a lovable, forgetful witch who is losing her powers due to old age and whose spells usually end in disaster. Aunt Clara is obsessed with doorknobs, often bringing her collection with her on visits.

Lorne had an extensive collection of doorknobs in real life, some of which she used as props in the series.[8] Death She appeared in twenty-seven episodes of Bewitched, and was not replaced after she died of a heart attack in her Manhattan apartment, just prior to the start of production of the show’s fifth season, at the age of 84 on May 9, 1968. Lorne is buried at Ferncliff Cemetery in Greenburgh, New York.

Posthumous The producers of Bewitched recognized that Lorne’s performance as Aunt Clara could not be replicated by another actress. 聽Comedic actress Alice Ghostley was recruited to fill the gap as “Esmeralda”, a different type of befuddled witch with wobbly magic whose spells often went astray.

Coincidentally, Lorne and Ghostley had appeared side-by-side as partygoers in the iconic comedy-drama film The Graduate , made the year before Lorne’s death. 聽She received a posthumous Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Bewitched. The statue was accepted by Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery. Personal life She was married to playwright Walter Hackett, who died in 1944.

Souvenirs…..The Love Boat


The Love Boat聽is an American television series set on a聽cruise ship, which aired on the聽ABC Television Networkfrom May 5, 1977, until May 24, 1986; three-hour specials aired in 1986鈥87 and 1990.

The series revolves around the ship’s captain (played by聽Gavin MacLeod) and a handful of its crew, with several passengers 鈥 played by various guest actors for each episode 鈥 having romantic and humorous adventures. It was part of ABC’s popular Saturday-night lineup that included聽Fantasy Island聽until that series ended in聽1984.

The original聽1976聽made-for-TV movie聽on which the show was based (also titled聽The Love Boat) was itself based on the nonfiction book聽Love Boats聽by Jeraldine Saunders, a real-life聽cruise director. Two more TV movies (titled聽The Love Boat II聽and聽The New Love Boat) would follow before the series began its first season in September 1977.

The executive producer for the series was聽Aaron Spelling, who produced several TV series for聽Four Star, and聽ABC聽from the 1960s into the 1980s.

In 1997, the episode with segment titles “Hidden Treasure,” “Picture from the Past,” and “Ace’s Salary” (season 9, episode 3) was ranked No. 82 on聽TV Guide’s 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. The Love Boat聽ran for nine seasons plus four specials. A made-for-TV movie, titled聽The Love Boat: A Valentine Voyage, starring four of the original cast members, aired on February 12, 1990.

Gavin MacLeod聽as Captain Merrill Stubing
Bernie Kopell聽as Dr. Adam “Doc” Bricker, ship’s physician
Fred Grandy聽as Burl “Gopher” Smith, Yeoman Purser (seasons 1鈥9)
Ted Lange聽as Isaac Washington, bartender
Lauren Tewes聽as Julie McCoy, Cruise Director (seasons 1鈥7, 9 (1 episode), 4 specials)
Jill Whelan聽as Vicki Stubing, the captain’s daughter (seasons 3鈥9, 4 specials, made-for-TV movie, plus a guest star appearance in Season 2 episode 8)
Ted McGinley聽as Ashley “Ace” Covington Evans, ship’s photographer (seasons 7鈥9),
Pat Klous聽as Judy McCoy, Julie’s sister and successor as cruise director (seasons 8鈥9)
MacLeod, Kopell and Lange are the only cast members to appear in every episode of the TV series as well as the last three made-for-TV movies. Grandy was in every episode throughout the run of the series, but was not in the last of the TV movies. MacLeod was not the captain of the聽Pacific Princess聽in the first two TV movies and did not appear in them, although when his character was introduced there was a mention of him being “the new captain”.

AMERICAN GRAFFITI


American Graffiti is a 1973 American coming-of-age comedy-drama film directed and co-written by George Lucas starring Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Paul Le Mat, Harrison Ford, Charles Martin Smith, Cindy Williams, Candy Clark, Mackenzie Phillips, Bo Hopkins, and Wolfman Jack. Suzanne Somers and Joe Spano also appear in the film.

 

Set in Modesto, California in 1962, the film is a study of the cruising and rock and roll cultures popular among the post鈥揥orld War II baby boom generation. The film is told in a series of vignettes, telling the story of a group of teenagers and their adventures over a single night.

The genesis of American Graffiti was in Lucas‘ own teenage years in early 1960s Modesto. He was unsuccessful in pitching the concept to financiers and distributors but found favor at Universal Pictures after United Artists, 20th Century Fox, Columbia Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Warner Bros., and Paramount Pictures turned him down. Filming was initially set to take place in San Rafael, California, but the production crew was denied permission to shoot beyond a second day.

 

American Graffiti premiered on August 2, 1973 at the Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland and was released on August 11, 1973 in the United States. The film received widespread critical acclaim and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Produced on a $777,000 budget, it has become one of the most profitable films of all time. Since its initial release, American Graffiti has garnered an estimated return of well over $200 million in box office gross and home video sales, not including merchandising. In 1995, the United States Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

 

In early September 1962 in Modesto, California, on the last evening of summer vacation, recent high school graduates and longtime friends, Curt Henderson and Steve Bolander, meet John Milner, the drag-racing king of the town, and Terry “The Toad” Fields in the parking lot of the local Mel’s Drive-In diner. Curt and Steve are scheduled to travel the next morning to Northeastern United States to start college. Despite receiving a $2,000 scholarship from the local Moose Lodge, Curt has second thoughts about leaving Modesto. Steve gives Toad his 1958 Chevrolet Impala to watch while he’s away at college until he returns at Christmas. Steve’s girlfriend, Laurie, who is also Curt’s sister, arrives in her car. Steve suggests to Laurie, who is already glum about him going to college, that they see other people while he is away in order to “strengthen” their relationship. Though not openly upset, she is displeased with his proposal which affects their interactions the rest of the evening.

 

Curt accompanies Steve, last year’s high school student class president, and Laurie, the current head cheerleader, to the back-to-high-school sock hop. In one story line, Curt is desperate to find a beautiful blonde girl driving a white 1956 Ford Thunderbird that he sees en route to the dance: at a stoplight, she appears to say “I love you” before disappearing around the corner. After leaving the hop, Curt is coerced by a group of greasers (“The Pharaohs”) to participate in an initiation rite that involves hooking a chain to a police car and ripping out its back axle. The Pharaohs tell Curt that “The Blonde” is a trophy wife or prostitute, but he refuses to believe either.

Determined to get a message to the blonde girl, Curt drives to the local radio station to ask DJ Wolfman Jack, who is omnipresent on the car radios, to announce a message for the blonde girl. Inside the radio station, Curt encounters a bearded man who tells him that the voice of The Wolfman is pre-taped from afar.

The man still accepts the message from Curt to see what he could do. As he is leaving the station, Curt sees the man talking into the microphone and hears the voice of The Wolfman, and realizes the man is the actual DJ himself.

 

Sure enough, The Wolfman eventually reads the message on the radio for “The Blonde” to meet Curt or call him at a number which happens to be a telephone booth. Curt waits by the telephone booth and early the next morning, he is awakened by the phone ringing. It turns out to be “The Blonde” who says she knows him and maybe she would see him cruising the coming night. Curt replies probably not, intimating that he decided to go to college and will be leaving that morning.

The Toad, in Steve’s car, and John, in his yellow 1932 Ford Deuce Coup茅 hot rod, cruise the strip of Modesto. Toad, who is normally socially inept with girls, successfully picks up a flirtatious, and somewhat rebellious, girl named Debbie. John inadvertently picks up Carol, an annoying 12-year-old who seems fond of him. Another drag racer, the handsome and arrogant Bob Falfa, is searching out John in order to challenge him to a race.

Steve and Laurie have a series of arguments and make-ups through the evening. They finally split and, as the story lines intertwine, Bob Falfa picks up Laurie in his black 1955 Chevrolet One-Fifty Coup茅. Bob finally finds John and goads him into racing. A parade of cars follow them to “Paradise Road” to watch the race. Laurie rides shotgun with Bob as Toad starts the race. As Bob begins taking a lead in the race, he loses control of the car when a front tire blows, and the car plunges into a ditch and rolls over. Steve and John leap out of their cars and rush to the wreck as a dazed Bob and Laurie stagger out of the car before it explodes. Distraught, Laurie grips Steve tightly and begs him not to leave her. He assures her that he will stay in Modesto.

At the airfield in the morning, Curt says goodbye to his parents, his sister Laurie, Steve, John and The Toad. As the plane takes off, Curt, gazing out of the window, sees the white Ford Thunderbird belonging to the mysterious blonde driving down a country road.

An on-screen epilogue reveals that

John is killed by a drunk driver in December 1964,

Toad is reported missing in action near An L峄檆 in December 1965,

Steve is an insurance agent in Modesto, California,

and

Curt is a writer living in Canada.

ANGIE DICKINSON


Angie Dickinson (born September 30, 1931) is an American actress. She began her career on television, appearing in many anthology series during 1950s, before landing her breakthrough role in the 1959 western film Rio Bravo, for which she received Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year.

Dickinson has appeared in more than 50 films, including Ocean’s 11 (1960), The Sins of Rachel Cade (1961), Jessica (1962), Captain Newman, M.D. (1963), The Killers (1964), The Art of Love (1965), The Chase (1966) and the neo-noir classic Point Blank (1967). From 1974 to 1978, Dickinson starred as Sergeant Leann “Pepper” Anderson in the NBC crime series Police Woman, for which she received Golden Globe Award for Best Actress 鈥 Television Series Drama and three Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominations.

During her later career, Dickinson starred in a number of television movies and miniseries, also playing supporting roles in films such as Sabrina (1995), Pay It Forward (2000) and Big Bad Love (2001). As lead actress, she starred in the 1980 erotic crime thriller Dressed to Kill, for which she received a Saturn Award for Best Actress.

 

Dickinson, the second of four daughters, was born Angeline Brown (called “Angie” by family and friends) in Kulm, North Dakota, the daughter of Fredericka (n茅e Hehr) and Leo Henry Brown.

Her family is of German descent and she was raised Roman Catholic.

Her father was a small-town newspaper publisher and editor, working on the Kulm Messenger and the Edgeley Mail.

In 1942, her family moved to Burbank, California, where she attended Bellarmine-Jefferson High School, graduating in 1947 at 15 years of age. The previous year, she had won the Sixth Annual Bill of Rights essay contest.

She studied at Glendale Community College and in 1954 graduated from Immaculate Heart College with a degree in business. Taking a cue from her publisher father, she had intended to be a writer. While a student from 1950鈥52, she worked as a secretary at Lockheed Air Terminal in Burbank (now Bob Hope Airport) and in a parts factory. She became Angie Dickinson in 1952, when she married football player Gene Dickinson.

Dickinson entered a beauty pageant in 1953 and placed second. The exposure brought her to the attention of a television industry producer, who asked her to consider a career in acting. She studied the craft and a few years later was approached by NBC to guest-star on a number of variety shows, including The Colgate Comedy Hour. She soon met Frank Sinatra, who became a lifelong friend. She later was cast as Sinatra’s wife in the film Ocean’s 11.

 

On New Year’s Eve 1954, Dickinson made her television acting debut in an episode of Death Valley Days. This led to other roles in such productions as Matinee Theatre (eight episodes), Buffalo Bill Jr., City Detective, It’s a Great Life (two episodes), Gray Ghost, General Electric Theater, Broken Arrow, The People’s Choice (twice), Meet McGraw (twice), Northwest Passage, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, Tombstone Territory, Cheyenne, and The Restless Gun.

In 1956, Dickinson was cast as Ann Drew, who slips a gun to her jailed husband, Harry (John Craven), a former associate of the Jesse James gang, in the ABC/Desilu western series, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, starring Hugh O’Brian. In the story line, Harry vowed never to go to prison and was shot to death while escaping.

 

In 1957, she was cast as Amy Bender in Richard Boone’s series “Have Gun-Will Travel” in the episode “A Matter of Ethics.” She played the sister of a man who was killed and who wanted the murderer lynched.

In 1958, she was cast as Laura Meadows in the episode “The Deserters” of an ABC/Warner Brothers western series, Colt .45, with Wayde Preston.

That year she also played the role of defendant Mrs. Fargo in the Perry Mason episode “The Case of the One-Eyed Witness.”

 

Dickinson went on to create memorable characters in Mike Hammer, Wagon Train, and Men into Space. In 1965, she had a recurring role as Carol Tredman on NBC’s Dr. Kildare. She had a memorable turn as the duplicitous murder conspirator in a 1964 episode of The Fugitive series with David Janssen and fellow guest star Robert Duvall. She was at her evil best as an unfaithful wife and bank robber in the 1958 “Wild Blue Yonder” episode of Rod Cameron’s syndicated television series State Trooper.

She starred in two Alfred Hitchcock Hour episodes, “Captive Audience” with James Mason on Oct. 18, 1962, and “Thanatos Palace Hotel” on Feb. 1, 1965.

Dickinson’s motion picture career began with a small, uncredited role in Lucky Me (1954) starring Doris Day, followed by The Return of Jack Slade (1955), Man with the Gun (1955), and Hidden Guns (1956). She had her first starring role in Gun the Man Down (1956) with James Arness, followed by the Sam Fuller cult film China Gate (1957), which depicted an early view of the Vietnam War.

Rejecting the Marilyn Monroe/Jayne Mansfield style of platinum blonde sex-symbolism because she felt it would narrow her acting options, Dickinson initially allowed studios to lighten her naturally brunette hair to only honey-blonde.

She appeared early in her career mainly in B-movies or westerns, including Shoot-Out at Medicine Bend (1957), in which she co-starred with James Garner. In the 1958 crime drama Cry Terror!, Dickinson had a supporting role opposite James Mason and Rod Steiger as a femme fatale.

 

 

In 1959, Dickinson’s big-screen breakthrough role came in Howard Hawks’ Rio Bravo, in which she played a flirtatious gambler called “Feathers” who becomes attracted to the town sheriff played by Dickinson’s childhood idol John Wayne. The film co-starred Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, and Walter Brennan. When Hawks sold his personal contract with her to a major studio without her knowledge, she was unhappy. Dickinson nonetheless became one of the more prominent leading ladies of the next decade, beginning with The Bramble Bush with Richard Burton. She also took a supporting role in Ocean’s 11 with friends Sinatra and Martin, released in 1960.

These were followed by a political potboiler, A Fever in the Blood (1961); a Belgian Congo-based melodrama, The Sins of Rachel Cade (1961), in which she played a missionary nurse tempted by lust; a scheming woman in Rome Adventure (1962), filmed in Italy, and the title role in Jean Negulesco’s Jessica (1962) with Maurice Chevalier, in which she played a young midwife resented by the married women of the town, set in Sicily.

Angie would also share the screen with friend Gregory Peck as a military nurse in the dark comedy Captain Newman, M.D. (1963).

For The Killers (1964), originally intended to be the very first made-for-television movie but released to theatres due to its violent content, Dickinson played a femme fatale opposite future U.S. President Ronald Reagan in his last movie role.

Directed by Don Siegel, it was a remake of the 1946 version based on a story by Ernest Hemingway and the only film Reagan made in which he was cast as a villain. He viciously slaps Dickinson in one of the film’s scenes.[8]

Dickinson co-starred in the comedy The Art of Love (1965), playing the love interest of both James Garner and Dick Van Dyke. She joined a star-studded Arthur Penn/Sam Spiegel production, The Chase (1966), along with Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, and Robert Duvall. That same year she was featured in Cast a Giant Shadow, a war story with Kirk Douglas.

 

Dickinson’s best movie of this era was arguably John Boorman’s cult classic Point Blank (1967), a lurid crime drama with Lee Marvin as a criminal betrayed by his wife and best friend and out for revenge. The film epitomized the stark urban mood of the period, and its reputation has grown through the years.

Westerns would continue to be a part of her work in the late ’60s, when she starred in The Last Challenge opposite Glenn Ford, in Young Billy Young with Robert Mitchum, and in Sam Whiskey, where she gave rising star Burt Reynolds his first on-screen kiss.

In 1971, she played a lascivious substitute high school teacher in the dark comedy Pretty Maids All in a Row for director Roger Vadim and writer-producer Gene Roddenberry, in which her character seduces a sexually inexperienced student, portrayed by John David Carson, against the backdrop of a series of murders of female students at the same high school; it was a box-office failure. In 1972’s The Outside Man, a French movie shot in L.A., with Jean-Louis Trintignant, directed by Jacques Deray, she plays the wife of a mobster. In 1973, she co-starred with Roy Thinnes in the supernatural thriller The Norliss Tapes, a TV movie produced and directed by Dan Curtis.

One of Dickinson’s best known and most sexually provocative movie roles followed, that of the tawdry widow Wilma McClatchie from the Great Depression romp Big Bad Mama (1974) with William Shatner and Tom Skerritt. Although well into her forties at the time, she appeared nude in several scenes, which created interest in the movie and a new generation of male fans for Dickinson.

 

A 1966 Esquire magazine cover gained Dickinson additional fame and notoriety, her having posed in nothing but a sweater and a pair of panty hose. The photo became so iconic that, while celebrating the magazine’s 70th anniversary in 2003, the Dickinson pose was recreated for the cover by Britney Spears.

 

Police Woman

 

Dickinson as Pepper Anderson, 1975 in Police Woman

Dickinson returned to the small screen in March 1974 for an episode of the critically acclaimed hit anthology series Police Story. That one guest appearance proved to be so popular that NBC offered Dickinson her own television show, which became a ground-breaking weekly series called Police Woman; it was the first successful dramatic TV series to feature a woman in the title role. At first, Dickinson was reluctant, but when producers told her she could become a household name, she accepted the role. They were right.

In the series, she played Sgt. Leann “Pepper” Anderson, an officer of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Criminal Conspiracy Unit who often works undercover.

The show became a hit, reaching number one in many countries in which it aired during its first year. It ran for four seasons and Dickinson would win a Golden Globe award, and receive Emmy nominations for three consecutive years.

Co-starring on the show was Earl Holliman as Sergeant Bill Crowley, Anderson’s commanding officer, along with Charles Dierkop as investigator Pete Royster and Ed Bernard as investigator Joe Styles.

The series ran from 1974 to 1978. The same year the show ended, Dickinson reprised her Pepper Anderson character on the television special Ringo, co-starring with Ringo Starr and John Ritter. She also parodied the part in the 1975 and 1979 Bob Hope Christmas specials for NBC. She would do the same years later on the 1987 Christmas episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

Police Woman caused a surge of applications for employment from women to police departments around the United States; journalists who have in recent years examined the inspiration for long-term female law enforcement officials to adopt this vocation as their own have been surprised by how often Dickinson’s Police Woman has been referenced.

Dickinson and Police Woman proved that a female lead could carry an hour-long television series, paving the way for several female-starring, hour-long TV series during the 1970s and 1980s, such as Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman, The Bionic Woman and Cagney and Lacey. In 1987, the Los Angeles Police Department awarded Dickinson an honorary doctorate, which led her to quip, “Now you can call me Doctor Pepper.”

 

Dickinson

On occasion during the 1970s, Dickinson took part in the popular Dean Martin Celebrity Roast on television, and herself was the guest of honor on August 2, 1977, roasted by a dais of celebrities that included James Stewart, Orson Welles and her Police Woman series co-star Earl Holliman.

 

The 1980s

Having done a television series plus the mini-series Pearl (1978) about the Pearl Harbor bombing of 1941, Dickinson’s career in feature films appeared to be in decline. But she returned to the big screen in Brian De Palma’s erotic thriller Dressed to Kill (1980), for which she gained considerable notice, particularly for a long, silent scene in a museum before the character meets her fate. The role of Kate Miller, a sexually frustrated New York housewife, earned her a 1981 Saturn Award for Best Actress. “The performers are excellent,” wrote Vincent Canby in his July 25, 1980 New York Times review, “especially Miss Dickinson.”

 

She took a less substantial role in 1981’s Death Hunt, reuniting her with Lee Marvin, and also appeared in Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen. Earlier that year, she had been the first choice to play the character Krystle Carrington on the television series Dynasty but, deciding she wanted to spend more time with her daughter, she turned it down; the role instead went to Linda Evans. In the mid-1980s Dickinson declined the role of Sable Colby on the Dynasty spin-off, The Colbys.

After nixing her own Johnny Carson-produced prospective sitcom, The Angie Dickinson Show, in 1980 after only two episodes had been shot because she did not feel she was funny enough, the private-eye series Cassie & Co. became her unsuccessful attempt at a television comeback. She then starred in several TV movies, such as One Shoe Makes It Murder (1982), Jealousy (1984), A Touch of Scandal (1984), and Stillwatch (1987). She had a pivotal role in the highly rated mini-series Hollywood Wives (1985), based on a novel by Jackie Collins.

In 1982, and again in 1986, Dickinson appeared in two of Perry Como’s Christmas specials for the ABC television network, in both of which she did something she was not known to have done before: singing. The specials in which she appeared, and in which she sang songs, were Perry Como’s Christmas In Paris, produced on location in Paris, France, which was transmitted on Saturday, December 18, 1982, and The Perry Como Christmas Special, produced on location in San Antonio, Texas, and transmitted on Saturday, December 6, 1986. As of early January of 2013, these two specials were not known to be available on home video.[citation needed] Dickinson later denied having sung on camera since then in an interview with Larry King conducted at the approximate time of her appearance in Duets.

 

AD

In motion pictures, Dickinson reprised her role as Wilma McClatchie for Big Bad Mama II (1987) and completed the television movie Kojak: Fatal Flaw, in which she was reunited with Telly Savalas. She co-starred with Willie Nelson and numerous buddies in the 1988 television western Once Upon a Texas Train.

She was presented one of the Golden Boot Awards in 1989 for her contributions to western cinema.

 

1990s and 2000s

In the 1993 ABC miniseries Wild Palms, produced by Oliver Stone, she was the sadistic, militant sister of Senator Tony Kruetzer, played by Robert Loggia. That same year, she starred as a ruthless Montana spa owner in Gus Van Sant’s Even Cowgirls Get the Blues with Uma Thurman.

In 1995, Sydney Pollack cast her as the prospective mother-in-law of Greg Kinnear in the romantic comedy Sabrina starring Harrison Ford, a remake of the Billy Wilder classic. She played Burt Reynolds’ wife in the thriller The Maddening and the mother of Rick Aiello and Robert Cicchini in the National Lampoon comedy The Don’s Analyst. In 1997, she seduced old flame Artie (Rip Torn) in an episode of HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show called “Artie and Angie and Hank and Hercules.”

Dickinson acted out the alcoholic, homeless mother of Helen Hunt’s character in Pay It Forward (2000); the grandmother of Gwyneth Paltrow’s character in the drama Duets (2000), and the mother of Arliss Howard’s character in Big Bad Love (2001), co-starring Debra Winger.

Having appeared in the original Ocean’s 11 (1960) with good friends Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, four decades later she made a brief cameo in the 2001 remake with George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

An avid poker player, during the summer of 2004 she participated in the second season of Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown. After announcing her name, host Dave Foley said, “Sometimes, when we say ‘celebrity,’ we actually mean it.”

Dickinson is a recipient of the state of North Dakota’s Rough Rider Award.

In 1999, Playboy ranked Dickinson No. 42 on their list of the “100 Sexiest Stars of the Century.” In 2002, TV Guide ranked her No. 3 on a list of the “50 Sexiest Television Stars of All Time,” behind Diana Rigg and George Clooney (who tied for No. 1).

In 2009, Dickinson starred in a Hallmark Channel film, Mending Fences. It is her last screen role to date.

 

Personal life

 

With husband-composer Burt Bacharach and new child, 1966

She was married to Gene Dickinson, a former football player, from 1952 to 1960. Close friends with John Kenneth Galbraith and Catherine Galbraith, her extensive visits to them and touring when John was American Ambassador to India is amply recounted in Galbraith memoirs including Ambassador’s Journal and A Life in Our Times. Dickinson kept her married name after her first divorce.

She married Burt Bacharach in 1965. They remained a married couple for 15 years, though late in their marriage, they had a period of separation where each dated other people.

Their daughter, Lea Nikki, known as Nikki, arrived a year after they were married. Born three months prematurely, Nikki suffered from chronic health problems, including visual impairment; she was later diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. Burt composed the music of the song Nikki for their fragile young daughter, and Angie rejected many roles to focus on caring for their daughter. Nikki’s parents eventually placed her at the Wilson Center, a psychiatric residential treatment facility for adolescents in Faribault, Minnesota, where she remained for nine years. Later, Nikki studied geology at California Lutheran University, but her poor eyesight prevented her from pursuing a career in that field. On January 4, 2007, Nikki killed herself by suffocation in her apartment in the Ventura County suburb of Thousand Oaks. She was 40.

In a joint statement, Dickinson and Bacharach said, “She quietly and peacefully committed suicide to escape the ravages to her brain brought on by Asperger’s… She loved kitties, earthquakes, glacial calving, meteor showers, science, blue skies and sunsets, and Tahiti. She was one of the most beautiful creatures created on this earth, and she is now in the white light, at peace.”

In a 2006 interview with NPR, Dickinson stated that she was a Democrat. She supported John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign in 1960.

Carri猫re

Claude Giraud quitte la Com茅die-Fran莽aise fin 1982 pour participer 脿 la cr茅ation de la compagnie de Jean-Laurent Cochet au th茅芒tre H茅bertot o霉, 脿 l’instar de sa 芦 maison 禄 pr茅c茅dente, plusieurs spectacles seront donn茅s en alternance.

Il a jou茅 de nombreux r么les 脿 la t茅l茅vision dont Roger Mortimer dans la s茅rie Les Rois maudits (1972), le principal protagoniste des Compagnons de J茅hu (1966) et le p猫re de S茅bastien dans S茅bastien parmi les hommes (1968), aux c么t茅s de Mehdi El Glaoui. Toujours 脿 la t茅l茅vision, il est Cinna (1962) devant la cam茅ra de Jean Kerchbron, Mehdi Ben Barka dans La guerre du p茅trole n’aura pas lieu (1974) de Souheil Ben Barka et donne la r茅plique 脿 Claude Jade dans Mamie Rose (1975) de Pierre Goutas .

Once upon a time


Once Upon a Time is an American fairy tale dramatic series that premiered on October 23, 2011, on ABC. The show takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, whose residents are characters from various fairy tales transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse.

Episodes typically feature a primary storyline in Storybrooke, as well as a secondary storyline from another point in a character’s life before the curse was enacted.

It borrows elements and characters from Disney films, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, The Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, Mulan, Tangled, Brave, Oz the Great and Powerful, and Frozen.

Once Upon a Time was created by Lost and Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. The series was renewed for a fifth season in May 2015. A spin-off series, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, consisting of 13 episodes, premiered on October 10, 2013, and concluded on April 3, 2014.

The series takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which the residents are actually characters from various fairy tales and other stories that were transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their original memories by the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parrilla), using a powerful curse obtained from Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle).

The residents of Storybrooke, where Regina is mayor, have lived an unchanging existence for 28 years, unaware of their own lack of aging.

The town’s only hope lies with a bounty hunter named Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), who was transported from the Enchanted Forest to our world as an infant before she could be cursed.

As such, she is the only person who can break the curse and restore the characters’ lost memories. She is aided by her son, Henry (Jared S. Gilmore), with whom she has recently reunited after giving him up for adoption upon his birth, and his Once Upon a Time book of fairy tales that holds the key to breaking the curse.

 

Henry is also the adopted son of Regina, providing a source of both conflict and common interest between the two women.

Episodes usually have one segment that details the characters’ past lives that, when serialized, adds a piece to the puzzle about the characters and their connection to the events that preceded the curse and its consequences.

The other, set in the present day, follows a similar pattern with a different outcome but also offers similar insights.

Lana Parrilla (born July 15, 1977) is an American actress.

Parrilla is best known for her roles on television and radio.

 

LANA PARILLA2

 

IN 聽ENGLISH 聽(EN FRANCAIS PLUS BAS / IN FRENCH BELOW )聽

She was a regular cast member in the fifth season of the ABC sitcom Spin City from 2000 to 2001.

She ( later )guest-starred in Boomtown (2002-2003), Windfall (2006), Swingtown (2008) and as Doctor Eva Zambrano in the short-lived medical drama Miami Medical (2010). She also played the role of Sarah Gavin on the season four of Fox series 24 in 2005. In 2011, Parrilla began starring as The Evil Queen/Regina Mills in the ABC fantasy drama series, Once Upon a Time.

Parrilla was born in Brooklyn. Her father, Sam Parrilla (1943鈥94), was a Puerto Rican-born baseball player who played professionally for 11 seasons (1963鈥73), including one season with the Major League Philadelphia Phillies in 1970 as an outfielder.

 

 

Her mother is an American painter of Sicilian descent who works in banking. Parrilla has one older sister, Deena, and a nephew named Sammy.

She is also the niece of character actress Candice Azzara. Parrilla’s parents legally divorced when she was four years old. She spent her first ten years living with her mother, and then lived with her father. During the time she lived with her father, he was too protective to allow her to attend a performing arts school, which delayed her acting career.

Parrilla lived with her father until his murder in 1994, when she was 16 and he was 50. Her father was shot once in the chest by a 15-year-old female assailant at point blank range and later died from the wound.

After the death of her father, Parrilla moved in with her mother in Burbank, California. Parrilla visited Granada in 2007 to learn Spanish. After high school she moved to Los Angeles and attended Beverly Hills Playhouse to study acting. She also studied voice for ten years. Parrilla then began to be cast in small parts and later on, larger ones.

In her early career, Parrilla appeared in several movies, including Very Mean Men (2000), Spiders (2000), Replicant (2001) and Frozen Stars (2003). She made her television debut in 1999, on the UON sitcom Grown Ups.

In 2000, she joined the cast of the ABC comedy series Spin City, playing Angie Ordonez for one season. She left the show in 2001.

After that she joined Donnie Wahlberg and Neal McDonough in the 2002 critically acclaimed but short-lived crime drama Boomtown, for which she received the Imagen Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her portrayal of Teresa, a paramedic. Initially a success, Boomtown began to struggle, and Parrilla’s character became a police academy rookie, to tie her more closely to the rest of the show. “Boomtown” was cancelled just two episodes into its second season.

Parrilla guest-starred in a number of television dramas, including JAG, Six Feet Under, Covert Affairs, Medium, The Defenders and Chase. She had a recurring role in 2004 as Officer Janet Grafton in NYPD Blue.

 

In 2005, Parrilla took a recurring guest role on the fourth season of the Fox series 24 as Sarah Gavin, a Counter Terrorist Unit agent. After just six episodes, Lana was made a regular cast member; but in the thirteenth episode, her character was written out after she tried to thwart another character’s promotion from temporary to permanent CTU head Michelle Dessler (Reiko Aylesworth).

In 2006, Parrilla starred in the NBC summer series Windfall alongside Luke Perry, fellow former 24 cast member Sarah Wynter, and Parilla’s former Boomtown castmate Jason Gedrick. In 2007, she guest starred as Greta during the third season of ABC’s Lost in the episodes “Greatest Hits” and “Through the Looking Glass” In 2008, she had a leading role on the Lifetime movie The Double Life of Eleanor Kendall, in which she played Nellie, a divorcee whose identity has been stolen.

Also in 2008, she starred in the CBS summer series Swingtown as Trina Decker, a woman who is part of a Swinging couple. In 2010, Parrilla had a female lead role in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Miami Medical on CBS, which had a short run towards the end of the 2009鈥10 television season before it was canceled in July 2010.

Windfall, Swingtown and Miami Medical were all canceled after 13 episodes.

In February 2011, she was cast as Mayor Regina Mills/The Evil Queen, the main antagonist in the ABC adventure fantasy drama pilot, Once Upon a Time created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

The series debuted in October 2011.

The pilot episode was watched by 12.93 million viewers and achieved an adult 18鈥49 rating/share of 4.0/10 during the first season, receiving generally favorable reviews from critics.

Parrilla’s performance also received positive reviews from critics. In 2012 and 2013, she was regarded as a promising contender for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category, though she did not receive a nomination.

She won the TV Guide Award for Favorite Villain and the ALMA Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series in 2012.

Parrilla also received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress on Television from the 38th Saturn Awards.

 

Parrilla became engaged to boyfriend Fred Di Blasio on April 28, 2013, while in Israel.

The two were married June 5, 2014, shortly before Parrilla began filming the fourth season of Once Upon a Time.”

Parrilla confirmed the news on her Twitter account on August 1. Parrilla is the stepmother to Di Blasio’s three sons: Jack, age 18, Patrick, age 15, and Matthew, age 13.
