RIP John Guillermin, Director Of Star-Studded Spectacles Comments (0)

2840November 11, 1925—September 27, 2015

John Guillermin, best known as the director of the disaster flick The Towering Inferno (1974), has died at 89.

Toweringinferno_womanjumpingThe moment the film ruined my life

The film was one of the most star-studded of its already typically star-studded genre, luring Paul Newman to be its leading man, with appearances by everyone from Faye Dunaway to Fred Astaire, Jennifer Jones—dance on air.

Guillermin was also the director of such films as I Was Monty's Double (1958), Never Let Go (1960), Waltz of the Toreadors (1962), the ill-fated remake of King Kong (1976) and the Agatha Christie whodunit Death on the Nile (1978). As such, he directed just about every major star you can think of, and many you can't, often at once.

Richard Wall, The Colorful Queen From PARTING GLANCES, Dies @ 71 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 2.00.46 AM“Douglas” had a standing reservation on the Concorde. With delectable Adam Nathan in Parting Glances.

So sad to read that Richard Wall, who was the ultimate jaded queen in Parting Glances (1986)—one of the best gay-themed movies ever—has died at 71.

Wall's “Douglas” in the movie was a well-rounded character, one who had a libido, frenemy-charged humor, blank-deprecation and at least one alarming flash of bitterness, when he said of those dying of AIDS:

“I'll have the last laugh. I may have committed the gay cardinal sin of being a tad bit overweight, but it's this so-called unattractiveness that's spared me from the plague.”

I was thrilled when I got to meet Richard and quite a few of the film's other cast members at a screening of the film several years ago.

So sorry to know he is gone.

RIP Edwige, Queen Of Paris Punk Comments (0)

12052370_10206447519841117_8022678531671109078_oEdwige, the Queen of Paris Punk

Edwige Belmore, a staple of Parisian and downtown NYC nightlife in the '70s and '80s, has died.

Vogue has a lovely reminiscence of the punk fashion plate. Her longtime friend Maripol, a stylist noted for Madonna's BOY TOY look, posted wryly on Facebook of the flattering piece, “Why wait when people pass to give them the exposure they deserve?”

As Vogue notes:

But Belmore was much more than the boldface names she’s often associated with.

Jack Larson—Openly Gay Actor, Writer, Producer, Raconteur Known As TV's First Jimmy Olsen—Dies @ 87 Comments (0)

E82de8e163614980826b8e0425d1d7aaFebruary 8, 1928—September 20, 2015

JackLarsonI'm sad to report that Jack Larson has died.

Larson, one of very few actors left who had major roles in the early days of TV, was inarguably best known for his aw-shucks-adorable portrayal of “Jimmy Olsen” on Adventures of Superman (1952—1958).

He often spoke wryly of the fact that he would forever be known as Jimmy.

After being typecast, he mostly left acting, focusing on his career as a playwright and librettist, with which he had some success.

Larson_bridges_maxWith Bridges shortly before the director's cancer battle took an unexpected turn for the worse.

Larson is also noteworthy as a Hollywood figure who came out publicly as gay many years ago, before it was fashionable or prudent. He was the partner of accomplished director James Bridges for some 35 years until Bridges died of intestinal cancer at 57, and also wrote about his passionate affair with film icon Montgomery Clift.

Jack1_adjLarson's secret weapon was, like Tony Dow's on Leave It to Beaver, his organic ability to make the boy-next-door type sexy.

6a010536b86d36970c01543665a5a2970c-800wiWith Bridges, Larson became a coproducer or associate producer on a surprising handful of major motion pictures: The Babymaker (1970), Mike's Murder (1984), the homo-erotic masterpiece Perfect (1985) and Bright Lights, Big City (1988).

He became a lively interview subject on the topic of Mr. Bridges' films and all things Hollywood.

What appears to be his final acting role has yet to see the light of day. According to director Antonio Lexerot, Larson filmed a cameo in a film called Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel.

Lexerot tells Boy Culture:

“In May, Jack gave us a little cameo as a charming counterpoint to a cameo from Noel Neill. The final scenes for this film are scheduled to shoot mid-October, and then we edit. Planning to have the film ready for release by Spring 2016.

“I'm saddened to hear of his passing. I only met him on our shoot, but he was so sweet and full of joy. He reminisced about his Superman days with fondness and his costars with warmth. He welcomed us into his home and was such a delight. Very sad news this morning.”

I never got to meet Mr. Larson, but was excited to attend a 2012 function at which he spoke, in a charmingly rambling way, while celebrating Debbie Reynolds.

Jackie Collins, Best-Selling Author & Chronicler Of Hollywood, Dies @ 77 Comments (0)

JackieCollinsOctober 4, 1937—September 19, 2015

I had the good fortune to meet Jackie Collins, Joan's scandalously successful scribbler sister, four years ago. It was a treat because I'd read some of her unapologetically salacious novels as a kid (rummage sales were a great place to find 10-cent copies of The Bitch or The Stud, but I was first in line for the tacky-fab Hollywood Wives) and because in person she turned out to be a down-to-earth doll.

6a00d8341c2ca253ef0154356dfdc4970cJackie was the picture of health four years ago.

Collins, who died after a mostly secret battle with breast cancer yesterday at age 77, was just one of the girls, in spite of the glitz and glamour that were her milieu. She talked about binge-watching all the latest buzzed-about TV shows at the event I attended, and proudly introduced us to her GBF.

Joan was my age (!) when she made this deliciously shameless flick!

1 stud tieinThe author had decided not to go public with her cancer battle until the past month, when she felt it couldn't be hidden, which is in stark contrast to the push public figures get to be open and honest about disease to help raise awareness. I think we are all aware of the scourge of breast cancer, which has robbed us of countless women and not a few men, so I respect her decision not to admit she was afflicted in order to live her life instead of living her death.

Hollywood Wives was a precursor to IMDb!

A great dame ... and it doesn't hurt that she was a huge Madonna fan who kept her sister making movies in the '70s. As Sandra Bullock says of her: “Heaven, watch out!”
