When Jean Cocteau started making motion pictures, at the beginning of the 1930s Auric began writing film scores. He wrote soundtracks for a number of French and British films, and his success led to writing the music for Hollywood movies, too. Several times, Auric’s work made it onto the hit parade, notably ''The Song from Moulin Rouge''. McCarthy era

North . It was nominated by the American Film Institute for their list of greatest film scores. It is a textbook example of how modernist compositional (Modernism (music)) styles can be adapted to the Hollywood leitmotif technique. North's score is epic, as befits the scale of the film. After extensive research of music of that period, North gathered a collection of antique instruments that, while not authentically Roman, provided a strong dramatic effect. These instruments included a sarrusophone, Israeli recorder (recorder), Chinese oboe (Suona), lute, mandolin, Yugoslav flute, kythara (Kithara), dulcimer (Appalachian dulcimer), and bagpipes. North's prize instrument was the ondioline, similar to an earlier version of the electronic synthesizer, which had never been used in film before. Much of the music is written without a tonal center, or flirts with tonality in ways that most film composers would not risk. One theme is used to represent both slavery and freedom, but is given different values in different scenes, so that it sounds like different themes. The love theme for Spartacus and Varinia is the most accessible theme in the film, and there is a harsh trumpet figure for Crassus. Vaughan left school after seven weeks of his senior year and moved with Blackbird to Austin, Texas.

Louisa (married name, Mrs Timothy Jones) was a leading figure in the Melbourne social set in the 1930s. She undertook extensive remodelling and renovation of the house to allow her to entertain on a lavish scale. The interior of the house was redecorated in a restrained classical 1930s style, drawing heavily on Hollywood film style of the 1930s and Syrie Maugham's "all white room" as influences. These renovations substantially altered most of the surviving Victorian (Victorian architecture) features of the house -- for example, the wallpaper in the entrance hall and corridors (originally embossed in gold) was over-painted in white, as were the marble columns around the main entrance. In Hollywood, Shake worked on his album with producer artist Michael Sembello, the guitarist producer from the group Cars Elliot Easton and Dayrell Ross producer song writer. He's working on his own unique sound and style, which comes from his music experienced in Europe and Asia mixed with American (United States) pop rock. Shake has recorded his album with sound engineers and studios in Los Angeles and Paris for his recent English album. Because of the California economy and the influence of the Hollywood film industry, many people traveled west with dreams of becoming rich and famous. Shelby had a train service, and the town's officials thought it would be wise to try to make the city an economic and tourist center. The money would be provided by revenues that the oil found in the area would bring. Multiple bank branches had opened there since the discovery, and many families would move in, or, at least, pass by and spend their money as tourists, according to plans. In the 1970s he began to concentrate more on film music rather than pop music, and became one of the most prolific film orchestrators in Hollywood in the period, winning an Academy Award for Best Song for co-writing with Buffy Sainte-Marie "Up Where We Belong" from 1982's ''An Officer and a Gentleman''. (Nitzsche had already worked with Sainte-Marie on ''She Used to Wanna Be a Ballerina'' in the early 1970s.) Nitzsche had also worked on film scores throughout his career, such as his contributions to the Monkees movie ''Head (Head (film))'', the theme music from ''Village of the Giants'' (recycling an earlier single, "The Last Race"), and the distinctive soundtracks for ''Performance (Performance (soundtrack))'', ''The Exorcist (The Exorcist (film))'', ''One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (film))'', ''Hardcore (Hardcore (1979 film))'' (1979), ''The Razor's Edge (The Razor's Edge (1984 film))'' (1984), and ''Starman (Starman (film))'' (also 1984). In 1931, his play ''Der Hauptmann von Köpenick (The Captain of Köpenick (play))'' premiered and became another success, but his plays were prohibited when the Nazis (Nazism) came to power in Germany in 1933 (Zuckmayer's maternal grandfather had been born Jewish and converted to Protestanism). Zuckmayer and his family moved to their house in Austria, where he published a few more works. After the '' Anschluss '', he was expatriated by the Nazi government, and the Zuckmayers fled via Switzerland to the United States in 1939, where he first worked as a script writer in Hollywood before renting Backwoods Farm near Barnard, Vermont in 1941 and working there as a farmer until 1946. In 1943 44 he wrote „character portraits" of actors, writers and other artists in Germany for the Office of Strategic Services, evaluating their involvement with the Nazi regime. This became known only in 2002, when the approximately 150 reports where published in Germany under the title „Geheimreport“. Films In 1932, Slezak began appearing in German cinema. As an actor comedian, he played humorous characters, but mostly he sang. His movies included ''La Paloma'' (1934) and ''Gasparone'' (1937). Slezak's final film role was as a portly sultan in the 1943 UFA prestige production ''Münchhausen (Münchhausen (1943 film))''. His son, Walter Slezak, who started off in musical theater, became a successful character actor in Hollywood during the 1940s. His grand-daughter (Walter's daughter) is the actress Erika Slezak, noted for her role on the soap opera ''One Life to Live''. * '''Miss Mercy''' (born February 15, 1949) was born in Burbank, California. She has been referred to by Miss Pamela as "the human facsimile". Having moved to Florida with her parents and older sister at an early age, the family eventually settled in San Mateo, California. Then, in 1964 (when she was 15), she dropped out of high school and told her parents she was ready to become legally independent. Despite their disapproval, she filed for emancipation, becoming a ward of the court within a couple of weeks. Miss Mercy went to live with a group of friends in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, California. Some of their neighbors included members of the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and a young Charles Manson. Eventually, Miss Mercy and Miss Pamela heard that Los Angeles was the mecca for meeting entertainers and especially rock & roll musicians. In addition, Miss Pamela wanted to pursue her acting career in Hollywood, and in early 1969, they moved south, immersing themselves into the local scene. Then, one of Miss Pamela's childhood friends, Don Glen Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart), took the girls to a large castle-like compound in Laurel Canyon where they were introduced to musician Frank Zappa. Soon after the breakup of the GTO's she became romantically involved with blues guitar prodigy Shuggie Otis, the son of rhythm & blues pioneer Johnny Otis. They married and had a son, Lucky Otis, who became a world-renowned multi-instrumentalist musician in the likeness of his father and grandfather. A few years later, Miss Mercy and Shuggie divorced. For the next 15 to 20 years she moved around northern and southern California, living a life of heavy drug use and sporadic public appearances. Miss Mercy re-married in 1991 and in 2000 divorced her second husband and quit all hard drugs and cigarettes. She has been clean and sober ever since. Miss Mercy currently resides in downtown Los Angeles and works for a thrift store in Hollywood. A somewhat concise account of her biography, entitled "Miss Mercy's Blues", is featured at length in its own chapter of ''I’m With The Band'', and her quite extensive resumè spans over five decades, ranging from magazines and books to radio, television, and feature-length award-winning documentaries. (she had a ten-minute segment dedicated to her life in the cult hit called ''The Mayor Of Sunset Strip'' starring alternative rock pioneer KROQ disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer, who is a close longtime friend of the GTO's). Miss Mercy and Miss Pamela still remain close friends. As of 2011, Miss Mercy is working closely with an author biographer to help document her life. In 2001 Bräck also had a minor role in the Hollywood motion picture ''Driven'', which starred Sylvester Stallone and Burt Reynolds.

style and wanted him to help work on his productions in Hollywood. From then on it was known throughout the film production business during that time that Groucho detested the other writers and favored Sheekman over them. This was seen in the movie ''Monkey Business (Monkey Business (1931 film))'' where Groucho rejected S. J. Perelman's script which he complained was too literary (Perelman said that Groucho's sole response to his script was, "It stinks!"). Groucho also rejected Ned Tennant's script and instead chose to use Sheekman's script in the end (even though ironically much of Sheekman's script was based upon Perelman's original ideas). He found his way to journalism jobs in Fleet Street and Hollywood where he interviewed and pulled scoops on stars including Ava Gardner (just after her divorce from Frank Sinatra); Mario Lanza, Elvis Presley, Sophia Loren, Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Yul Brynner, Clark Gable, Dean Martin, Rock Hudson, Jayne Mansfield, Cary Grant, Paul Newman, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Collins, Peter O'Toole and Sean Connery. What begin in this novel as two separate tales eventually twist together into one, centered around the efforts of a LA Sheriff's Deputy (Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department) to capture a brutal sex murderer while serving, somewhat reluctantly, as a decoy for a set-up to expose communists in Hollywood. This young deputy, Danny Upshaw, finds himself on a ride that will force him to confront secrets he has kept his whole life, even from himself. Two other major characters, disgraced former cop, Turner "Buzz" Meeks, now working for both Howard Hughes and Mickey Cohen, and ambitious LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) lieutenant Malcolm "Mal" Considine, involved in a child custody case, try with varying success to do the right things in an environment of deception, paranoia and brutality. The Hadacol Caravan LeBlanc was an entrepreneur in other areas too, but it is Hadacol that made him famous outside Louisiana. For his "Hadacol Goodwill Caravan" touring shows (the last of the big-time "medicine shows"), LeBlanc brought in Hollywood celebrities, including such luminaries as Roy Acuff, ''Minden Herald'', August 18, 1950, announces an appearance of the caravan in Shreveport (Shreveport, Louisiana) on August 31 of that year. Milton Berle, Lucille Ball, Minnie Pearl, Connee Boswell, Mickey Rooney, Bob Hope, Cesar Romero, Dorothy Lamour, Carmen Miranda, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Judy Garland, Jack Dempsey, Chico Marx, Hank Williams and James Cagney to help him market the product. He also sponsored a separate touring show featuring notable Jazz and Blues musicians to attract black customers. Admission to the Hadacol gala was two Hadacol boxtops for adults, one for children. Considering that the 8 ounce bottle cost $1.25 and the "family size" 24 ounce bottle cost $3.50 each during the late 1940s, this was not cheap (Adjusted for inflation, the prices would be around $10 and $30 in 2007). Sales of the tonic at the shows were brisk.

And, as Jiminy has said, "''that's how it all started!''" On ''The Martin Short Show'' In the show, Glick is a famous television interviewer who has been around Hollywood for a long time. Despite this, he remains laughably ignorant about pop culture and most entertainment news, though he considers himself just the opposite. His interviews with stars are characterized by his patronizing attitude, often bizarre questions about obscure matters, and awkward body language. For example, he'll often cite another celebrity with whom the interviewee apparently shares a birthday (but in reality does not) and ask how it makes them "feel." He is extremely forgetful, and takes ginkgo biloba as a memory aid (although, as he often points out, the catch twenty-two (Catch-22 (logic)) is that he doesn't remember to take it). Glick is also very overweight, and during interviews he will sometimes aggressively stuff his face with junk food (which is always present on the table on set) at a moment's notice. Glick would occasionally offer food to his guests, but if they reached for it without being offered, he would snatch it away, growling, "No! ''All for me!''" On top of his many other eccentricities, Glick has an unforgettably peculiar voice, shifting within a single sentence from a high, effeminate whine to a deep growl. Albright worked as a model before moving to Hollywood. She began her motion picture career with a bit part in the 1948 film ''The Pirate'', and followed it with an important role in the acclaimed 1949 (1949 in film) hit ''Champion (Champion (1949 movie))''.
