The Funniest People in Comedy and Relationships: 500 Anecdotes


The Funniest People in Comedy and Relationships: 500 Anecdotes


$17.65


This book contains such anecdotes as these: 1) In his Answer Man column, film critic Roger Ebert answered a question by Matt Sandler about who was the world’s most beautiful woman by saying that she was Indian actress Aishwarya Rai. In a later Answer Man column, a reader stated that Mr. Ebert should have answered the question by saying, "My wife." However, Mr. Ebert had a good reason for not answering the question that way: "Matt Sandler asked about women, not goddesses." 2) To advertise its Razzles candy, Mars Candy decided to use a Cleveland, Ohio, show in which comedian Ron Sweed, aka The Ghoul, hosted several mostly bad horror movies. The Ghoul criticized the candy for weeks, and the more he criticized it, the more its sales went up. In gratitude, Mars Candy delivered a case of Razzles to The Ghoul. The case of candy remained on the set of The Ghoul’s show for year–unopened.

The Road to Comedy: The Films of Bob Hope


The Road to Comedy: The Films of Bob Hope


$11.25


Although Bob Hope has been the subject of many biographies, no book yet has fully explored the comic persona he created in vaudeville and radio, brought to fruition in dozens of films from the 1930s through the 1960s, and made a lasting influence on comedians from Woody Allen to Conan O’Brien. Now, in The Road to Comedy: The Films of Bob Hope, noted film comedy authority Donald W. McCaffrey finally places Hope in his well-deserved position among the highest rank of film comedians of his era. Drawing on archival materials and interviews with collaborators, McCaffrey analyzes each major film in depth, with due attention to particular sequences that reveal how Hope created a unique comic personality that lasted over dozens of very popular films, from the "Road movies" with Bing Crosby through such underrated classics as Son of Paleface, Monsieur Beaucaire, and Casanova’s Big Night. In so doing, McCaffrey introduces readers to a Bob Hope now overshadowed by his own reputation. We see here that Hope’s significance has been greater than any USO appearance or television special might suggest. Because many of these movies have recently been made available on DVD–the first time in decades that they’ve been easily available to the general public–the volume will also serve as an excellent introduction for those wanting to see these films for the first time.

$3.95


"You talkin’ to me?" If you’re a diehard film buff-or a just a Diehard" buff-this hilarious little book is" talkin’ to you. Taking a completely wacky approach to the game of movie trivia, author Paul Copperwaite has devised scores of graphs-pie charts, bar charts, flowcharts, diagrams, and tables-that tickle you while testing your knowledge of the most memorable and most embarrassing moments in cinematic history. Copperwaite’s charts measure and quantify the strangest stuff: Bruce Willis’s baldness, Al Pacino’s loudness, Keanu Reeves’ expressiveness (or lack thereof). King Kong’s irritability level. Property values in Amityville. The coincidence between John Travolta’s dancing in a film and that film’s box office success (Saturday Night Fever "and Pulp Fiction" hit it big; Battlefield Earth" flops). If you love movies and pride yourself on how much you know about them, you’ll relish being in on the jokes.

What exactly is film comedy and what is the basis for its widespread appeal? "Film Comedy" uses formal, socio-historical and industrial perspectives to answer this question. What, for example, is the basis of the appeal of gross-out comedy in films such as "There’s Something About Mary" and "American Pie"? What is the relationship between comedy and narrative, from early silent slapstick to the performance of actors such as Steve Martin and Jim Carrey? How has romantic comedy changed, or remained the same, from the 1930s to today? What happens when comedy is put to more serious ends in satire ranging from works produced under communism in Eastern Europe and Cuba to Hollywood features such as "Bullworth" and "Wag the Dog"? To what extent is comedy nation-specific? And what is the role of comic relief in Hollywood action movies and black comedy such as "American Psycho" and "Man Bites Dog."

The Films of Woody Allen


The Films of Woody Allen


$4.99


The Films of Woody Allen is the first full-length study of Woody Allen the artist as opposed to the celebrity and personality and argues that Allen is a major artistic force. On the cutting edge of contemporary critical and cultural consciousness, Allen challenges our notions of authorship, narrative, perspective, character, theme, ideology, gender and sexuality. A student and admirer of the classic Hollywood cinema, Allen combines this appreciation for American directors with a developed sensitivity to experimental European directors such as Fellini, De Sica and Bergman. Probably the most widely recognized aspect of his work involves his films that experiment with narrative, plot and psychology. In the films dating from the early seventies, Allen develops into one of America’s great innovative directors as he takes his brilliant comic impulses seriously. His technical, literary, visual and linguistic innovations introduce intensity and complexity to his humour. Instead of continuing on the path of zany comedy, he carefully creates films that form an original union of the serious and comic.

Steve Neale and Frank Krutnik take as their starting point the remarkable diversity of comedy’s forms and modes – feature-length narratives, sketches and shorts, sit-com and variety, slapstick and romance. Relating this diversity to the variety of comedy’s basic conventions – from happy endings to the presence of gags and the involvement of humour and laughter – they seek both to explain the nature of these forms and conventions and to relate them to their institutional contexts. They propose that all forms and modes of the comic involve deviations from aesthetic and cultural conventions and norms, and, to demonstrate this, they discuss a wide range of programmes and films, from Blackadder to Bringing up Baby, from City Limits to Blind Date, from the Roadrunner cartoons to Bless this House and The Two Ronnies. Comedies looked at in particular detail include: the classic slapstick films of Keaton, Lloyd, and Chaplin; Hollywood’s ‘screwball’ comedies of the 1930s and 1940s; Monty Python, Hancock, and Steptoe and Son. The authors also relate their discussion to radio comedy.

My Life Is A Situation Comedy


My Life Is A Situation Comedy


$5.93


Before Larry David, before Louis C.K., before Ray Romano, there was the true Golden Age of television comedy, an era of brilliant and landmark programming that dominated the dial from the 50s to the 70s. Bill Persky, the five-time Emmy Award-winning writer, director and producer of over 300 TV shows and films was at the center of that special time in TV history. Along the way, he was responsible forsome of the most successful and acclaimed sitcoms of all time, including the clssics The Dick Van Dyke Show, That Girl and Kate & Allie. Persky blazed a trail through television during a time of tremendous social upheaval, when TV was still discovering its power to influence and move audiences. To this day, Perskys groundbreaking female characters, such as That Girls Ann Marie, remain pop culture icons. In his memoir, My Life is a Situation Comedy, Bill shares his tales of a life well lived and vividly recollected. Perskys touching, often hilarious and occasionally alarming backstage portrayal is one of triumphs and disappointments, celebrity and calamity, romances and breakups. I attempted to make things right and maintain a semblance of dignity, he writes, while constantly slipping on the banana peels of life." Lucky for us, many of those slip ups wound up as fodder for the TV episodes we came to know and love so well. My Life is a Situation Comedy is populated by the larger than life legends and one-of-a-kind characters that figured so prominently in Perskys world. From his work with Carl Reiner on The Dick Van Dyke Show, to a surreal six weeks in London with the mythic Orson Welles, Persky knew them all and somehow lived to tell the tale. Among the marquee names that sparkled brightly in Perskys universe are Mary Tyler Moore, Bill Cosby, Sid Caesar, Steve Allen, Goldie Hawn, Marlo Thomas, Peter Sellers, Susan St. James, Jane Curtin, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Tim Conway, Andy Williams, Cary Grant and The Smothers Brothers.

Truth Be Told: Off the Record about Favorite Guests, Memorable Moments, Funniest Jokes, and a Half Century of Asking Questions


$3.95


After more than a half century of asking questions, in 2010 Larry King suddenly found that everyone wanted answers from him. Why was "Larry King Live," CNN’s highest-rated program, ending after three decades? Was Larry getting divorced again? "Truth Be Told" is a deeply revealing look at the broadcast legend as he dealt with marriage upheaval, the ensuing paparazzi and tabloid controversy, prostate cancer, the 25th anniversary of Larry King Live, and ultimately, his decision to leave the show to pursue a secret dream–stand-up comedy. Larry reflects on how much the world has changed around him over the course of his 50-year career, and the riveting conversations he’s had with the most compelling figures in politics, entertainment, medicine, and technology. In these pages, Larry also shares his most memorable moments with singers and songwriters (from Sinatra to Lady Gaga); actors (from Marlon Brando to Al Pacino); billionaires (the high-profile Donald Trump and the low-profile Carlos Slim); world leaders (Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad); crooks (Bernie Madoff, the interview that got away); comedians (from Lenny Bruce to Jerry Seinfed to Chris Rock); and a host of others. "Truth Be Told" is a surprisingly candid look inside the monumental career of one of the most powerful and legendary talk-show hosts, and the final year of a nightly television program that has been close to all our hearts.

The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin: Artistry in Motion


The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin: Artistry in Motion


$97.16


From his early shorts in the 1910s through his final film in 1967, Charlie Chaplin’s genius embraced many arts: mime, dance, acting, music, writing, and directing. The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin: Artistry in Motion examines Chaplin’s fusion of these arts in his films, providing new understanding of how movement communicates, how comedy routines are structured, and how stage skills can be translated to the screen. An acclaimed comic performing artist himself, Dan Kamin brings a unique insider’s perspective to the subject. He explores how Chaplin’s physical virtuosity led him to create the timeless visual comedy that brought silent films to their peak. Kamin uncovers the underlying principles behind the filmmaker’s gags, illuminating how Chaplin conjured comedy from the fundamental physical laws of movement. He then presents provocative new interpretations of the comedian’s sound films, showing how Chaplin remained faithful to his silent comedy roots even as he kept reinventing his art for changing times. Kamin also offers new insights into how Chaplin achieved rapport with audiences and demonstrates how comedy created nearly a century ago is still fresh today. Lavishly illustrated with many never-before-published images, The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin provides the only in-depth analysis of Chaplin as a movement artist and physical comedian. Revealing the inner working of Chaplin’s mesmerizing art, this book will appeal not just to Chaplin fans but to anyone who loves comedy.

They pick Mays Gilliam (Rock), an unknown local politician from a down-and-out D.C. neighborhood, to be their puppet. But if Mays is going to run, he’s going to have fun. He’s bringing in his brother Mitch (Bernie Mac), a hardcore bail bondsman, as his running mate and turning his campaign into party central. Now, Gilliam’s gaining in the polls and on his way to making history.

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.

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

John Hughes and Eighties Cinema: Teenage Hopes and American Dreams


$22.99


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. The new edition has been updated and revised in the wake of John Hughes’ death in 2009. Full illustrated. With bibliography, filmography and notes. 372 pages. ISBN 9781861713988. www.crmoon.comREVIEW 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 Think of the American cinema of the 1980s, and your mind is instantly bombarded by dozens and dozens of flamboyant moving images

 Keaton B-Buster Keaton Collection


Keaton B-Buster Keaton Collection


$26.91


Considered by many the greatest of cinema’s silent clowns, Buster Keaton was a consummate practitioner of physical comedy. Although labeled the Great Stone Face, Keaton found tremendous eloquence in his deadpan style with the alert and expressive eyes, lithe acrobat’s body and that air of grace described by critic James Agee as a fine, still and dreamlike beauty. This TCM Archives 2-disc celebration of Keaton’s art puts the spotlight on his MGM period. The Cameraman (1928), remastered with a new score by Arthur Barnow, and Spite Marriage (1929) are among Keaton’s funniest silents, while Free and Easy (1930) is his first talkie. These films marked a peak in his popularity with audiences; however, Keaton resented the loss of artistic control he had enjoyed in his earlier movies and was on the brink of a major career decline that he blamed on studio interference. This watershed period in Keaton’s life is the basis for film historian Kevin Brownlow’s poignant new documentary So Funny It Hurts: Buster Keaton at MGM, completing a DVD collection which offers keen insight into what makes Keaton’s unique style of comedy hilarious, moving and timeless.
