In the comedy Future ’38, an American agent travels from the ’30s to 2018 to hamstring Hitler and discovers a strange world of connected computers and other futuristic phenomena. He also falls for a woman 80 years his junior.

“The film is a valentine to the classic screwball comedies of the 1930s and ’40s,” says writer-director Jamie Greenberg in his director’s statement. “It imagines a world that’s a magical hybrid of 1938 and the present: a vintage film transposed to our modern world.” Read More

Out On Film: ‘Freak Show’ illustrates red state hysteria

When Out on Film released the roster for 2017’s festival, “Freak Show” was one of the films set to be screened at the festival on Oct. 5 at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. This brilliant movie is about boldly confident, eccentric gay teen Billy Bloom, raised by a fabulous (although alcoholic mother) played by Bette Midler. Billy is forced to move to a “red state” to live with his Southern father in a small town where Christ is king and girls are homecoming queens — that is, until Billy decides to run. Read More

BetteBack April 23, 1975: Vito Russo Interviews Bette Midler

The Advocate
Exclusive Bette Midler Interview
April 23, 1975
By Vito Russo

2017-05-17_23-51-59

NEW YORK, NY: Don’t let all the recession-obsessed soothsayers fool you. People are still lining up to see a good show. At around midnight of the evening before tickets went on sale at the Minskoff Theatre for Bette Midler’s Clams on the Half Shell Revue, the line began to form for what turned out to be the largest single day ticket sale in Broadway history. The previous record had been set more than a year ago by Bette Midler at the Palace Theatre. Red Skelton said it when he was told that over 10,000 people had shown up at movie mogul Harry Cohen’s funeral: “Give the people something they want to see and they’ll come out for it.”At a time when people were selling apples on the street corners in Greenwich Village for $1.50 each, I’m convinced now that we do indeed need it now.

Perhaps you noticed her as the smart, put-together lawyer working for Bernie Madoff in the recent HBO movie The Wizard of Lies. Or perhaps you clocked her as the similarly no-nonsense political staffer Tanya Benson in the just-released fifth season of Netflix’s House of Cards. Either way, Sophie von Haselberg has made her mark on some of the season’s most talked about releases—she also starred in and produced the short YOYO, which appeared at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Seth Rogen, Bette Midler, and other Hollywood “liberal heroes” were arrested during an Oscar party drug raid.

RATING

FALSE

ORIGIN

On 26 February 2017, TheLastLineOfDefense.org published an article appearing to report that seven “liberal heroes” were arrested during an Oscar party drug raid:

Oscar night is Hollywood’s big chance to come together to celebrate each others’ achievements, strut around in a million dollars worth of gowns and tuxedos, show the world how elitists rule our society and then get together for a drug-filled night of partying and debauchery afterward. This year, on the orders of our president, Hollywood would pay for sticking its nose up at our laws, denigrating the good name of our president and protecting the illegal aliens and terrorists we all want gone.
