The Family Jewels (1965)
Max Hubacher is Willi Herold, the deserter, and his icy cold performance is one of the highlights of “The Captain.” Herold will stop at nothing to survive against the constant chase on the run from the German army, and once he gets a taste of officer power he is not about to let go. His journey takes him to a prison holding other deserters, and his decisions there are based on getting the assignment done quickly and to his larcenous advantage. When complications arise there,

For the inquisitive Jerry fan, Shawn Levy’s 1997 King of Comedy: The Life and Art of Jerry Lewis, remains the first and last stop for the straight scoop on America’s premiere nudnik. Levy, who endured the full fury of the comedian’s legendary wrath to get his story, is as admiring of his subject’s accomplishments as he was repelled by his whiplash mood swings. The hard knock apprenticeship in the Catskills, the Freudian-fueled soap opera of his partnership with Dean Martin, the boastful sex-capades, they’re all there and then some.
Reached for comment following the news of Lewis’ death, Perry shared the following statement on his relationship to Lewis’ work.
Whenever I would cite Jerry Lewis as an influence, I would qualify the statement by saying he inspired me more as a philosopher than a comedian. The remark would get a laugh but I would elaborate, with total sincerity. The intellectual drive of this man, from the very beginning of his career through his instantly-legendary Hollywood Reporter interview last year (his final masterpiece,
With Martin Scorsese and Jerry Lewis in person
Co-presented with the Comedy Hall of Fame
A true Renaissance man, well recognized as one of the greatest comedians in the history of the field, Jerry Lewis helped define so much of comedy’s vast language as a stand-up performer, actor, producer and writer. Perhaps his greatest innovation was as a filmmaker. Taken together, movies such as The Bellboy, The Ladies Man, The Errand Boy, The Nutty Professor, The Patsy, and The Family Jewels form a breathtaking virtual dictionary of every aspect of what is important and essential to the language of comedic film. His films would help forge the cradle of
“Jerry Lewis is a very important name whenever movie comedy is discussed and enjoyed,” said TCM host Robert Osborne, who also serves as the official host of the TCM Classic Film Festival. “Jerry has provided the world with great merriment and laughter, while also showing, in such films as Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy,
Here at the Vienna International Film Festival there are no multiplexes devoted to the festival. Every cinema is a single screen—all quite beautiful and some, like the Urania, Metro, Künstlerhaus, and Austrian Film Museum, very special indeed—and, scattered at a bit of a distance from one another, they trace a lopsided kind of ellipsis, a loop of cinema if you plan your itinerary right.
Above: Out 1, noli me tangere.
I came anticipating this particular suggestion of cinematic infinity, not just because of my memories of the last two years of repeatedly treading this touring path around the constrained city center of Vienna, but because of the promise of a much desired (by Jonathan Rosenbaum since 1996, and thereafter by an untold multitude of tantalized cinephiles) festival pairing of Jacques Rivette and Suzanne Schiffman's improvised serial intended for television, Out 1, noli me tangere (1971), and Louis Feuillade's
Listeners were charmed by her slightly off-kilter, left-of-center pop songs like "I Am Not A Robot," which were sonic relief from the endless buffet of dance pop and hip hop that ruled and continues to dominate radio airplay.
For her second album, "Electra Heart," Marina threw fans a curveball and presented them with a collection of songs draped in the very dance pop that she had eschewed on her first outing. However, rather than writing "drunk in the club" lyrics, as she puts it, the personal and slyly tongue-in-cheek album obsessively explores themes of sex, love, fame, betrayal and the complexities
What’s the opposite of ‘every cloud has a silver lining’? If anyone was going to know it’d be Marina Diamandis considering her numerous attempts to break into the mainstream. First there was The Family Jewels and a runner up spot in the BBC Sound of 2010 list, so far so good. 3 top 40 singles and a top 5 album isn’t so bad but not what Marina wanted or probably expected after the whole hype brigade there was. So back to the drawing board a.k.a. blonde wigs, Calvin Harris-esque dance sound (courtesy of Stargate) and the most mainstream, on-trend single by her to date. It got radio backing, video channel plays and… well not much. It’s sad to see an artist with so much potential underperform
The mistaken identify snafu went down at Sydney's The Family Jewels store where the actor turned up to check out some bling.
"All of a sudden these two big burly guys came into the shop," shop owner Kane Kelfkens told Splash News.
"We saw a hooded figure come in with dark glasses and [my sales assistant ...

According to TMZ, the clerk (who goes only by Linda) panicked when two imposing bodyguard types walked into her store followed by a shady, hoodie clad gentleman; Linda sent a customer to fetch the owner for some extra protection. But Linda quickly learned that bodyguard types were, in fact, bodyguards and the shady, hoodie clad gentleman was a shady, hoodie clad Leonardo DiCaprio.
Leo then dropped $1600 dollars on an antique coral Nepalese necklace -- quite the opposite of a robbery. Though we must point out that "The Family Jewels" is a classless name for a jewelry store. Come on, Linda...
Gene Simmons finally popped the question to Shannon Tweed — and we now know the answer thanks to TMZ – yes! The Family Jewels stars have a big family and will finally unite the two becoming the Tweed-Simmons.
And after almost three decades together, these lovebirds still manage to keep their sense of humor.
The children of the soon-to-be newlyweds sent out a rather sarcastic and witty invitation on the behalf of Gene, 61, and Shannon, 54, stating “After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot… Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father’s life … well, it doesn’t change that much.”
Comical and cute!
The invitation requests fancy attire, but acknowledges rocker-wear will be present.

The transition from comedy to horror is rarely an easy one for directors. Few guys as entrenched in the comedy genre as Smith have ever tried to break out of it, and even fewer have made their break successfully. Here are five interesting -- and very different -- examples of horror movies made by guys we'd typically classify as comedy directors. We'll get to see soon enough how Smith's big move compares with theirs.
