I decided that after watching more films and giving my Top 10 – Tragic Love Stories post more thought that a second part of tragic love stories should be done. Mainly because lets face it so many tragic love stories seem to happen on the movie world. I have taken into consideration the comments on what is now Tragic Love Stories: Part 1 – with people letting me know which films they feel have the most tragic love stories in them. I agreed with a lot of them as well, but had already done the first list.
This part contains quite a lot of more recent film love stories and some which were missed from Part 1!
THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS
I have just come across some remakings of classic movie posts for the TCM Classic Film Festival.
I first saw this movie at the cinema, not long after it came out and I went with my mam. I always remember that I saw the trailer over and over and told my mam that it is the type of film that she would love too (and yes I was right). Lets start off by saying that before I went to see this in the cinema, I had never actually cried watching a film in the cinema before.
I think its terrible that people will write stuff like this or mention, how can anyone ever know the truth when the people in question are no longer alive??? Its so disrespectful !!!
Paul Newman has been ‘outed’ from beyond the grave by Marlon Brando, according to writer Darwin Porter’s scandalous new book on the late movie legend.
Porter interviewed Brando about Newman before the acting great died in 2004 – and he was stunned with what the heavyweight star let slip.
In his book, Paul Newman: The Man Behind The Baby Blues, he quotes Brando as saying, “He never fooled me. Paul Newman had just as many on-location affairs as the rest of us, and he was just as bisexual as I was. But, where I was always getting caught with my pants down, he managed to do it in the dark.”
Porter tells America’s the Globe he has been tracking Newman’s secret sexual encounters since he met the actor in 1959 and alleges in his new book the late star, who was happily married to actress Joanne Woodward for 50 years, bedded icons like Grace Kelly, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe.
The writer also claims Newman and James Dean had a gay romance.
But the actor’s family has dismissed Porter’s book, claiming the sex allegations are “disgusting”.
A source says, “Paul knew there were rumours out there about his sexuality and to have to face them when he’s not here to dispute them is Joanne’s worst nightmare.”
I think Hugh and Anne would make a fantastic pairing for a new version of Carousel *fingers crossed*
Hugh Jackman is trying to persuade his Oscars dancing partner Anne Hathaway to join him on the Carousel.
The Aussie star has developed a script for the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and he wants Hathaway to play Julie Jordan opposite his Billy Bigelow.
He says, “I’ve been looking to do a musical film for some time and after things like Moulin Rouge!, Chicago and Hairspray, I think there’s a real opportunity there.”
And he’s clear only Hathaway will do as his leading lady: “I’ve been filling up her answering machine with messages about Carousel.”
Hathaway, who joined Jackman for a song and dance at the Oscars, is about to embark on her own musical journey – she will star in a new theatre and film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland’s life.
I have not posted a movie quote for a rather long time now . . . so thought I should get back in the habit of posting them
Today’s is from “A Star is Born” with Judy Garland. This quote probably will not make any sense if you have not seen the movie
“Hello, everybody. This is Mrs. Norman Maine.”
I back this up for Liza. I think its important to remember the good side of Judy’s life and career. Focusing on what she done well, instead.
Liza Minnelli is urging filmmakers to avoid focusing on her late mother Judy Garland‘s drug addiction in an upcoming production.
Actress Anne Hathaway will be tackling The Wizard Of Oz star’s hits as part of the Weinstein Company’s planned theatre and film project, based on biographer Gerald Clarke‘s 2001 book Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland.
Garland’s daughter Minnelli has approved of casting Hathaway in the role – but is convinced the new versions must focus on her mother’s talent instead of her well-documented personal problems.
Minnelli tells Canada’s Citytv, “Well, I love Anne Hathaway. And I hope that it’s a good movie and I hope that it’s true. You know, that they don’t just concentrate on the crap like they usually do.
“(I hope) that they talk about her the way she should be talked about which was she was a fabulous entertainer, a great mother and just a wonderful human being.”
Today’s picture is from ‘P.S. I Love You’ and is my favorite part. When Holly (Hilary Swank) is singing “The Man That Got Away” from ‘A Star Is Born’ featuring Judy Garland.
