Orson Welles , one of the best filmmakers ever and arguably the greatest of them all, would have turned 100 years old today. Welles’s legacy remains as robust as ever, even 30 years after his death. To commemorate his impact on film and culture, here is Speakeasy’s list of 10 essential Welles movies. Citizen Kane (1941). What better place to start than with the film that made him a movie-making legend while destroying his reputation among the Hollywood elite. The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). RKO eventually took over production of the movie and dramatically cut the length of Welles’s adaptation of Booth Tarkington’s novel about the decline of a prominent family in the Midwest. Even though it is considered one of Welles’s best films, the filmmaker’s fans have long dreamed that one day Welles’s version would be discovered hidden somewhere. Unlike “Kane,” Welles didn’t star in “Ambersons,” but he narrated it. 4. The Stranger (1946). Here, Welles, both in the director’s chair and as a star, takes on World War II and the legacy of the Holocaust.
For the first time in over ten years, as I said last time, we didn’t have a table of our own. We took a lot of pictures so I think I’ll just run a few of those and talk about them. I am trying very hard to not buy any more single-issue comics, especially back issues, but there are a couple of things I’ll make exceptions for. The first are the old DC 80-page Giants and 100-page Spectaculars, especially replacing the ones I had when I was a kid. A lot of that material hasn’t been reprinted anywhere else– well, anywhere else I can afford, anyway. And picking up a couple of old 100-pagers from Randy for two or three bucks is just about the best deal on comics you’ll find in the entirety of North America. I found a FLASH , a LEGION , and a couple of Superman Giants I hadn’t picked up last year. Another thing I’ll make an exception for are comics that are highly unlikely ever to be reprinted in paperback. I realize that in a world where Skull the Slayer and The Creature Commandos both have trade paperback collections currently in print, that’s a pretty high bar, but there are a few unloved short-run series still unavailable anywhere except as back...
This muscular black man with arms thick as hams leans over and gently shakes the woman's bony shoulder. "Have a good day, ma'am," he replies, moving on down the line of dazed people and overstuffed shopping carts outside the Union Rescue Mission. It's just another day in the life of a man shopkeepers and residents of the nation's last true Skid Row call the "Sheriff of Skidberry. Joseph is senior lead officer for the Los Angeles Police Department, and Skid Row has been his beat for the past 17 years. He prefers foot patrol. These are his people. He used to make a lot of arrests, but these days he spends most of his time just talking to people and handing out donated hygiene kits -- toothpaste, soap, deodorant, lotion and shaving cream -- and fliers that explain how to apply for housing... He leads self-defense classes for homeless women, events he calls "Ladies' Night. And then he returns the calls. And so, he knows nearly everybody -- The Hurricane, Bow Leg, Slow Bucket, Thick 'n' Juicy -- and they know him, too. Most respect him. Nearly two decades on some of the nation's poorest, nastiest streets haven't stripped this beat cop of his humanity. But should the situation call for.
