Lou Brooks at Drawger http: www.drawger.com loubrooks A ''New York Times'' movie reviewer wrote on August 5, 1937, "the appearance of the 'Personettes' struck me as satire of a high order. The puppets, you see, have a production number of their own… It seemed to me to be the perfect spoof of the usual song-and-dance interlude, proving how unnecessary it really is and how easy to duplicate (in fact, improve upon) with dolls."

'''''¡Que viva la música!''''' is a novel by the Colombian writer Andrés Caicedo, one of his most important works and considered by many observers as a masterpiece of modern Colombian literature. He started to write it on a trip to Los Angeles trying to get in touch with Roger Corman in order to sell to the famous Hollywood director four of his play scripts, but he was not welcomed. Caicedo devoted his time in the USA to seeing movies, studying blues and rock and writing this novel.

black comedy

. With ''The Choirboys'' he "found his voice," and thereafter his novels were stylistic lampoon (parody)s of not only the Los Angeles police world but the Hollywood lifestyle (lifestyle (sociology)), and often filled with black comedy. Wambaugh, by then a successful author, resigned from the LAPD after fourteen years of service in order to publish ''The Choirboys'' without retribution from those he burlesqued. ''The Choirboys'' is also significant in that Wambaugh turned to the bizarre anecdotes of others (which he terms "cop talk") to provide the grist for his writing after previously drawing from his own experience. After the Jones band broke up in 1936, Jenkins worked as a freelance arranger and songwriter, contributing to sessions by Isham Jones, Paul Whiteman, Benny Goodman, Andre Kostelanetz, Lennie Hayton, and others. In 1938, Jenkins moved to Hollywood and worked for Paramount Pictures and NBC, and then became Dick Haymes' arranger for four years. In 1944, Jenkins had a hit song with "San Fernando Valley". Later she moved to Hollywood and has been doing voices for video games, animation (List of animated television series), commercials (television advertisement), radio promotions, anime, and movies (film) since 1993. In 1994 she was cast as Felicia Hardy Black Cat in ''Spider-Man: The Animated Series'', the first in a long line of Marvel comics characters she has voiced. She has also been a guest (guest appearance) on several well-known TV show (television program)s, such as ''Charmed'', ''ER (ER (TV series))'', ''Just Shoot Me!'', among others. She was sometimes credited as '''Carren Learning'''. She plays Cinderella (Cinderella (Disney character)) and Princess Aurora (Aurora (Disney)) in various Disney (The Walt Disney Company) projects. Beginning with the July 7, 1949 episode, the series was broadcast from Hollywood with producer Elliott Lewis (Elliott Lewis (radio)) directing a new cast in scripts by Morton S.

acting small

Angeles, California Los Angeles and spent eight years there acting small roles in films and doing brief TV stints, including a TV movie ''Gargoyles''. He appeared in Francis Ford Coppola's ''Apocalypse Now'' (1979), in a small role, while there and also worked with directors like Jonathan Demme and Robert Altman. Fed up with Hollywood, in 1978 Glenn left Los Angeles with his family for Ketchum, Idaho and worked for the two years he lived there as a barman, huntsman and mountain ranger, occasionally acting in Seattle (Seattle, Washington) stage productions. Late one night, Nelson is singing about his long lost father, while Lisa, unable to take any more starvation, eats an entire Labor Day cake that was baked especially for Lenny. The next day, Nelson helps Lisa get back at Sherri and Terri (List of recurring characters in The Simpsons#Sherri and Terri) for teasing her. Nelson unleashes a skunk, which sprays both of them, while Lisa and the rest of the children point and sing a modified version of Jingle Bells. Both twins are horrified and run off screaming. When Lisa and Nelson return home, they find Nelson's father, who Bart found working at a freak show in a circus. It turns out that Nelson's dad had really gone to the Kwik-E-Mart (which Nelson has repeatedly stated previously in the series), where he had gotten a severe allergic reaction from eating a chocolate bar full of peanuts. Coincidentally, the circus had made a stop in the Kwik-E-Mart parking lot, and found Nelson's father, thinking he was some kind of half human, half monkey beast. Nelson's mother finally returns, after going to Hollywood and getting the lead role in Macbeth, playing Lady Macbeth (Lady Macbeth (Shakespeare)). At the conclusion of this episode, Nelson kindly thanks Bart for finding his father and goes back to live with his family and Homer declares that everything is back to normal. However, Lisa tells Homer that, despite Nelson beating up the girls who made fun of her butt and eating something after days of starvation, she still thinks she's fat and (like many women and girls in real life) will never be content with her body image. Upset over the news, Homer goads Lisa into admitting that she is happy about her weight, which Lisa refuses to admit. While there had been feature-length Christian films before, including the End Times film ''If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do?'' directed by Ron Ormond in 1971 (1971 in film), a sweeping, ambitious project like ''Thief'' - with three sequels telling one continuous story over the course of a decade - had never been undertaken even in secular Hollywood. Some consider it to be a forerunner of the modern action movie franchises. Doughten's identification of the Antichrist not with Communism as Ormond had done, nor with Jack Chick's sinister view of the Vatican (Holy See), but rather with a worldwide government that initially acts as a global peacemaker, would set the tone for most fundamentalist interpretations of the End Times in the decades that followed. '''Sharon Tate''' was an American (United States) actress (actor). During the 1960s she played small roles in television, before starting her film (cinema) career. After receiving positive reviews as a light comedienne (comedian), she was hailed as one of Hollywood's promising newcomers. Tate's celebrity status and role as a style icon of the "Swinging Sixties" increased after fashion magazines began featuring her as a model (model (person)) and cover girl. Married to the film director Roman Polański, Tate was eight months pregnant when she, along with four others, was murdered in her Benedict Canyon home by followers of Charles Manson, in a crime that shocked the nation. A decade after the murders, her mother Doris Tate, appalled at the growing cult status (cult figure) of the killers and the possibility that any of them might be granted parole, joined a campaign to ensure they remained in prison. This was part of the catalyst which led to amendments to California law in 1982, which allowed crime victims and their families to make victim impact statements. Early life William Castle was born William Schloss in New York City to a Jewish family. ''Schloss'' is German for "castle", and Castle chose to translate his surname into English to use as his pseudonym. Orphaned at the age of 11, he would drop out of high school and spend most of his teenage years working on Broadway (Broadway theatre) in a number of jobs ranging from set building to acting. This stood him in good stead when he became a director, and he left for Hollywood at the age of 23, going on to direct his first film six years later. He also worked an as assistant to director Orson Welles, doing much of the second unit location work for Welles' noir classic, ''The Lady from Shanghai''. In the wake of the landmark 1948 U.S. Supreme Court antitrust ruling, ''United States v. Paramount Pictures, Inc.'', all the major Hollywood movie studios, including Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), were ordered to sell off the movie theater chains they owned and operated. Produced by Arthur Freed and directed by Vincente Minnelli in his Hollywood debut, ''Cabin in the Sky'' was a groundbreaking production for its time due to the decision to use an all-African-American cast. In the 1940s, movie theaters in many cities, particularly in the southern United States, refused to show films with prominent black performers, so MGM took a considerable financial risk by approving the film. Henry is struck between the eyes at this idea, and vows to establish the most well-equipped and supportive orphanages on the planet. He enlists the help of his accountant who works as his personal banker. Originally, Henry's plan works well-until he reaches Las Vegas (Las Vegas, Nevada). There, he unknowingly collects a huge sum from three casinos owned by the same Mafioso. A bellhop at the hotel Henry is staying at warns him of the danger; the two switch clothes, and Henry escapes unharmed. After this narrow escape, Henry flies to Hollywood, where he enlists the aid of a famous makeup artist to create various disguises and false identities to protect himself. '''Pare Lorentz''' (December 11, 1905 – March 4, 1992) was an American (United States) filmmaker known for his movies about the New Deal. Born Leonard MacTaggart Lorentz in Clarksburg, West Virginia, he was educated at Wesleyan College and West Virginia University. As a young film critic in New York and Hollywood, Lorentz spoke out against censorship in the film industry. As the most influential documentary filmmaker of the Great Depression, Lorentz was the leading US advocate for government-sponsored documentary films. His service as a filmmaker for US Army Air Corps in WWII was formidable, including technical films, documentation of bombing raids, and synthesizing raw footage of Nazi atrocities for an educational film on the Nuremberg Trials. Nonetheless, Lorentz will always be known best as "FDR's filmmaker."

Working as an engineer in California, Hardin was planning on attending a costume party as a cowboy and heard that the Western Costume company on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood rented out stage weapons. While there, he was discovered by a Paramount Pictures talent scout.
