Nice Guys Don’t Work in Hollywood: The Adventures of an Aesthete in the Movie Business — Curtis Harrington

But Harrington did!


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
Curtis Harrington’s autobiography is how I imagine the man to have been: soft-spoken, honest and intelligent. Those wondering, “Who’s Curtis Harrington?” should know that is part of the book’s point. Here was a talented filmmaker who never quite got his due, for reasons that had nothing to do with creativity and everything to do with commerce. Here was an artist who worked in a system that had no interest in art.

I'm So Excited

Don’t be too excited for Pedro Almodovar’s I’m So Excited and its slapstick comedy aboard an airplane.


Comedy

Aimee Williams
When the male flight attendants eventually do an impromptu, drunken dance routine to the Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited,” it seems as if Almodovar felt he had to formulate an entire comedy to justify this sole dance sequence, when a short film most likely would have sufficed.

Wish Lists


News

Gazette staff
What do local notables want this holiday season? Well, Oklahoma Gazette asked ’em. And they told us. Imagine that!  We passed along these lists to Mr. Claus to do with as he sees fit. But for now, we’re reading the list — some of it twice, because it’s that good. We talked to everyone from adult film stars to leading conservative politicians to get insight — and a laugh — from our leading locals. Happy holidays! — Jennifer Chancellor
