Excerpt: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is a 2004 American comedy film , directed by Adam McKay and starring Will Ferrell . The film, which was also written by Ferrell and McKay, is a tongue-in-cheek take on the culture of the 1970s, particularly the then-new Action News format. It portrays a San Diego TV station where Ferrell’s title character clashes with his new female counterpart (Christina Applegate ). This film is number 100 on Bravo ‘s 100 funniest movies, and 113 on Empire’s 500 Greatest Movies of All Time . The film made $28.4 million in its opening weekend, and $89.3 million worldwide in its total theatrical run. A companion film assembled from outtakes and abandoned subplots, titled Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie , was released straight-to-DVD in late 2004. In May 2008, it was confirmed that a sequel to Anchorman is in the planning stages. Plot In 1970s San Diego, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell ) is the anchorman for KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News. He works alongside his friends and news team, lead field reporter and fashion oriented Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd ), sportscaster Champion “Champ” Kind (David Koechner ), and chief meteorologist the mildly retarded Brick Tamland (Steve Carell ). After a successful day of work, the team is notified by their boss, Ed Harken (Fred Willard ), that their station has again maintained its long-held status as the highest-rated news program in town, leading them to throw a wild party . The next day, Ed informs the team that he is has

Hollywood’s Classic Comedies: 200 Fun-Filled Films Rated & Reviewed


$5.49


200 classic movie comedies are discussed and reviewed (with full cast and credit details) in this must-have book that will delight every vintage film fan. If you’ve never heard of Abbott and Costello, The 3 Stooges, or Laurel and Hardy, this is not the book for you. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of classic Hollywood comedies, this book will not only evoke lively memories of TV laugh-makers of the 1970s and 1980s, but even (if you are old enough to remember such things) of Saturday movie matinees when Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake and many other solo clowns like Harold Lloyd, Red Skelton, Joe E. Brown, Charles Chaplin, Clifton Webb and W.C. Fields convulsed audiences with their antics. I also fondly remember comedy teams like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey, Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Some of their funniest movies are all featured in this book too. HOLLYWOOD’S CLASSIC COMEDIES, is a treat for movie lovers and collectors. It features slapstick, romance, music, glamour and screwball fun with a massive 200 entries. The reviews read like a who’s who in the field of comedy films. In addition, there’s a listing of 50 Must-See Highlights of Movie Comedy, and three pages listing the major comedians featured in the reviews with the titles of their films. Some of the movies covered include Adam’s Rib, And Baby Makes Three, Belles of St Trinian’s, Bringing Up Baby, Designing Woman, The Egg and I, The Paleface, The Philadelphia Story. Raffles (all three versions), Slightly Dangerous, The Titfield Thunderbold, Woman of the Year, and many, many more to delight the reader. Series films include Abbott and Costello, Bulldog Drummond, Blondie, Charlie Chaplin and Dad Rudd. As is usual in John Howard Reid’s books, the author goes into much detail about the cast, the technicians, and release dates in America, England and Australia. And his own comments are

Sometimes it’s hard to think of exactly the right title for a book. It’s easy, of course, if you have the title in advance. You just write the book to fit. But on this occasion, my aim was to provide a wide-ranging, general introduction to the wonderful world of classic movies that thrilled audiences from 1925 through 1965. To represent 1925, I chose “The Eagle” which showcases Rudolph Valentino at his most ingratiating. For 1965, I envisaged my favorite Agatha Christie adaptation, “The Alphabet Murders”. For 1928, “Our Daring Daughters” (starring the entrancing Joan Crawford) was a natural. For 1931, it was impossible to go past Jean Harlow’s “Platinum Blonde”; and for 1933, who could refuse admittance to either “King Kong” or “The Invisible Man”? It soon became apparent, however, that a year-by-year breakdown was not going to work, because there were too many years in which Hollywood produced a bumper crop of movie treasures. Take 1944, for instance: “The Conspirators” (a delightful extravaganza, intended as a box-office follow-up to “Casablanca”), with Hedy Lamarr, Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre; “Cover Girl”, one of my all-time favorite musicals, starring Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly, directed by Charles Vidor; “The Curse of the Cat People”, starring that quintessential object of fantasy, Simone Simon; “In Society”, one of Abbott and Costello funniest outings; “The Man in Half-Moon Street”, Paramount’s elaborately atmospheric answer to “The Picture of Dorian Gray”; two entries in Universal’s justly famous “Mummy” series, both starring Lon Chaney; and “Standing Room Only”, a side-splitting comedy of manners that rates with me as one of the Ten Best ever made. So I asked myself what did all these marvelous movies have in common? They were all simply Hollywood miracles of entertainment. Here are 125 of the best vintage, brought together with full credits, background information and up-to-date reviews in this well-produced book that also includes a

$51.99


JOHN HUGHES AND EIGHTIES CINEMAJohn Hughes is the acclaimed writer and director of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Pretty In Pink and many other classic movies of the 1980s. This book is the first full-length analysis of all of John Hughes’s films throughout the 1980s; not only the features that he directed, but also those for which he provided the screenplay. By analysing these pictures and discussing their social and cultural significance in the wider context of the decade, Hughes’s importance as a filmmaker will be considered, and his prominent contribution to cinema assessed. The book concludes with a detailed analysis of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, a film which is considered to be among Hughes’s most critically successful works and also one of his most structurally refined. REVIEW ON AMAZONIf like me, you were fortunate enough to live through and grow up during the 80′s and early 90′s, you’ll remember just how rich comedy was back then. This book on it’s own puts most comedies of the modern era to shame as it is a homage to one of the most talented minds in the game. I am of course speaking of none other than the late great John Hughes. This is a great book for getting into the details of how a master of his art came about and created such cinematic gems. Hughes will be sorely missed which is why books like this keep his spirit and work alive! I’d say this book is for people who are nostalgic 20-somethings or cinema buffs, but all-round a good book for just about anyone who would like to know what made one of the funniest minds of Hollywood tick. EXTRACT FROM THE INTRODUCTION Today John Hughes is just as well known for the scripts he created for hugely popular family films throughout the 1990s, including Chris Columbus’s blockbuster Home Alone (1990), Brian Levant’s Beethoven (1992) and Nick Castle’s Dennis the Menace (1993), written under his pen-name of Edmond Dantès.

These little comedic gems have been lovingly restored and are offered on DVD for the very first time!Injun Trouble (1926): Raymond Griffith (January 23, 1895 – November 25, 1957) was one of the great silent movie comedians. The best known of his films today is Hands Up!, a 1926 Civil War comedy feature directed by Clarence G. Badger, and co-starring Mack Swain, which was entered into the National Film Registry in 2005. This is a very rare two-reel version of that film.Please Excuse Me (1926): This 1926 entry was the third episode of the Excuse Maker two reel comedy series featuring Charles King and Constance Darling. In films since childhood, Charles King played a variety of roles in silent films but it was as a western villain in the 1930s and 1940s that King would achieve his greatest fame.The Tin Hoss (1925): This 1925 film was produced as a Hey Fellas! comedy, which was basically a copy of Hal Roach’s Our Gang series.
