Glamorous Wednesday:Good-Bye Sidney Pollack

May 28, 2008



                                        Sidney Pollack, American Movie Director


QUOTE:  “Most of the great directors that I know of were not actors, so I can’t tell you it’s a requirement.  On the other hand, it’s an enormous help” — Sidney Pollack (Academy Award Winning Director)

Renee’s Aside:  I got to “see” Mr. Sidney Pollack, in person, when I walked into his Century City office one day.  I remember that day vividly, I was wearing a “strapless black and white zebra print dress” .  Although I’ve told this story before I forgot to add that going into the Century City building I saw–I walked by–a $100,000 car.  It was an Excalibur and–it was “purple”….


Disney will distribute Renee Baker Studios’  first motion picture, in movie theatres worldwide, under an “output deal” valued at $73.5 million dollars.  (U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy will co-produce/consult….)

History Monday: “Good-Bye Charlton Heston”

April 7, 2008

Charlton Heston\'s handprints at Walt Disney Hollywood Studios             

Above, the “handprints” of Charlton Heston in front of “The Great Movie Ride” at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios (formerly known as the Disney-MGM Studios Theme park….) 

                               ” HEROIC  HESTON”

               Charlton Heston (Academy Award winning film actor) often played the “hero” in “epic films” (such as: “Ben Hur”, “Planet of the Apes”, and “Soylent Green”  to name a few)….Heston was born John Charles Carter in Evanstan Illionois and he was the son of Lilla (nee Charlton) Carter and Russell Whitford Carter….
              In 1944, Heston enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Forces and served for two years (as a B-25 radio operator/gunner) in the Alaska Aleutian Islands.  He served with the Eleventh Air Force and  he rose to the rank of Staff  Sergeant.   (Also–in 1944 Heston married Northwestern student Lydia Marie Clark….)
               In 1950, Hal B. Wallis of “Casablanca” spotted Heston in a 1950 production of Wuthering Heights and offered him a ‘film contract’.  The rest–as they say–is history: “The Agony and the Ecstasy” (1965), “Julius Caeser” (1970), “Antony and Cleopatra” (1972)….In all, Heston appeared in 100 films during his 60 year long career….
             Mr. Charlton Heston died on Saturday, April 5, 2008 at his home with Lydia, his wife of 64 years, at his side….Charlton and Lydia have a son, Fraser Clarke Heston and an adopted daughter Holly Ann Heston*
   “I love you Charlton Heston”….From, Renee Ashley Baker

Did you know that American canter Bruce Springsteen is being sued by an Olympic equestrian (Todd Minikust) for allegedly backing out of a contract to buy a $850,000 horse for his daughter Jessica?    It seems that Jessica is a budding young rider who participates in (and wins) riding competitions held in “The Hamptons” (see picture above).  Will an equine dispute resolution be forthcoming? ….(“Frankly Scarlett I don’t give a damn” …Whinny!)
