Marilyn Monroe like you've never seen her

By Katy Chen, published on Oct 25, 2006

Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra, and Jayne Mansfield were just some of his friends, but no one in Hollywood really believed it because most people in this town like to tell tales of the rich and famous. After the death of freelance photographer Frank Worth in 2000, his family discovered hundreds of photographs and negatives of Worth's famous friends in his West Hollywood apartment. And last night, at an opening reception ceremony at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood, the world got a glimpse into his circle. Most of the images have never been publicly seen, and Frank... (more)

Don't Forget the Derby!

By Alethea, published on Oct 19, 2006

In the days of the Golden Hollywood era, the Brown Derby was the place to be. The Derby started as a cute little restaurant in Hollywood shaped like a derby hat. It soon spread to 3 other locations throughout Hollywood, all of which were bombarded with old time movie stars, swing dancers and night-clubbers. Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, and Lucille Ball were some of the faces you might have seen frequenting these hot spots. Sadly however, to date there is only one Derby left as the rest have been turned into malls, parking lots or offices. The last of the original Derbies stands on Los... (more)

A Wonderful Director at His Best

By A. A. Abrahami, published on Oct 15, 2006

...by others, but never are we bored. The script is completely engaging from start to finish; each actor captivates the audience via an outstanding performance that’s charismatic, honest, and full of energy and fervor (especially Depp, whose range and creativity is generally overlooked by Hollywood…btw, he should have received the Oscar for this one…I do believe he was nominated, or was that a Golden Globe?...I’ll imdb it later). And last but not least, my favorite lines, most of which are articulated by Bill Murray as the flamboyant Bunny Breckinridge: “How do ... (more)

Canvas

By C. Reagan, published on Oct 14, 2006

... rise above the urges of “high-fashion”. In this outfit, it seems that I don’t need to fit in with the other boys. I am comfortable and flattered by these clothes, but my eyes shimmer with the truth. I’m not nearly ready to not “fit in” at a gay bar in West Hollywood. It lands on top the other clothes with a soft, but familiar, thud. Black is the new black. In pinstripe pants, a dark, tailored button down and polished black Ferragamos, I can pass for the east-cost hipster I really long to be. Not complete without a venti double soy latte and dark... (more)

Nipple Slip ... of the Knife

By Hassassin, published on Oct 13, 2006

When it comes to plastic surgery, the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” takes a back seat to an excess-for-access tradeoff in Hollywood. And then there’s Tara Reid. She takes it one step further, altering—befittingly enough—the saying to “if it ain’t broke, break it”. Gone are the days when the cute blonde with the raspy voice graced Maxim covers, and enjoyed sultry moments with the Rookie of the Year kid eating her America pie; now the only cover Tara Reid is gracing is the charge at the Standard’s club entrance. So what happened? Well, in the latest issue... (more)

Paris and Nicole: Life Partners?

By C. Reagan, published on Oct 11, 2006

...scenes were crudely edited to make it look like the pair had been with the same family the same time. Rumors are also swirling that the girls bonded over the mutual dislike of having this season of "Life" being set on an island with survivalists, each trying to "survive" a few weeks with the Hollywood "It's" Girls. Apparently, the newly reunited friends couldn't convince "Key Club" or "Privilege" to erect late night hot spots on the remote island and therefore, nixed the idea. The two bonded over conversation and actual food at a West Hollywood steak house, Dan Tanas. Nicole brought along ... (more)

Monorail To Tie Together L.A.'s Gems

By dodgerjon, published on Oct 11, 2006

Seeing that the NFL is still interested in doing business with the L.A. Coliseum, Hollywood Thoughts figured we'd throw-in our own two-cents on the whole shebang... For a long while we've thought it would be a wise idea to create a 'golden triangle' of L.A.'s more interesting -- but less-utilized -- cultural and entertainment venues. Specifically, we'd like to see an above-ground monorail built that would connect the L.A. Coliseum/ Natural History Museums to downtown's Broadway Street (home of the Million Dollar, Los Angeles and Orpheum movie palaces). Another spur could connect with the Convention... (more)

The Pitt family in India

By Ariel, published on Oct 8, 2006

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie are currently in India to shoot a movie about the slain journalist Daniel Pearl, killed in February 2002 by a terrorist group in Pakistan. The most glamorous couple of Hollywood isn't exactly incognito in India where they are constantly followed by a swarm of bodyguards protecting the stars from paparazzi. On Saturday, one of Brangelina's bodyguards manhandled a journalist who refused to put down his camera. The journalist later reported to the press: "He said if I took his pictures he would kill me", "I couldn't breathe. He had his fingers on my windpipe and he knew... (more)

Star’s Performance Gets Oscar Buzz

By Josh Marks, published on Oct 1, 2006

... around 300,000 deaths during his reign of terror in the early 1970s. Whitaker’s ability to tap into the leader who could charm reporters at a press conference while at the same time ordering executions in the next room, has already helped secure him the actor of the year award from the Hollywood Film Festival and is generating an Oscar buzz for the 45-year-old star. Macdonald, who is better known as the documentary filmmaker behind “One Day in September” and “Touching the Void,” and screenwriters Peter Morgan and Jeremy Brock have capably adapted the Giles... (more)
