No Brains is more like it. Richard Gere stars in this slick action thriller as your basic tough-but-dedicated cop who goes to New Orleans to avenge the death of his partner. On the way, he becomes involved with an illiterate Cajun beauty (Kim Basinger in the kind of role that unkind critics would call her typecast in before Ready to Wear and, of course, L.A. Confidential) who's the property of a ruthless killer. It's paint-by-numbers nonsense with lines (such as "we come from a society where it is very pleasurable to be a man") that play as high camp--unfortunately, that's not intended. Gere and Basinger's relationship--they'd try again, equally unconvincingly, with Final Analysis--is patently silly. They spend the first half of the movie exchanging hilariously sultry meaningful glances, until they're on the lam together, where the burning question is which actor's hair will be more stylishly mussed. --David Kronke

100-Year-Old Wisconsin Man Still Reads to Kindergarteners Two Days a Week - PEOPLE.com

Fred Leidel’s three-wheeled bicycle is a familiar site around Madison, Wisconsin. The 100-year-old , who was born before women could vote and spent World War II designing airplane propellers, tucks his walker in a cargo basket on the back of the bike and puts people a quarter his age to shame with the amount of activities gets... “When you get as old as I am, you have to find things to occupy your time,” Leidel told the Wisconsin State Journal. Among those things: Exercise that includes weightlifting and swimming laps, volunteering for the Experimental Aircraft Association — Leidel spent 37 years teaching at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s college of Engineering, where he was also... But perhaps the most impactful of Leidel’s varied extracurriculars are his twice-weekly visits to Schenk Elementary School, where he reads to kindergartners there who know him as “Grandpa Fred. “I like when he reads books to me, and I like it that whatever books you want to read and how many books you want, he does it,” Alaura Villarreal, who once had Leidel read seven books to her, told the State Journal. “So many of our kids don’t have other opportunities to read a lot of books at home. … His purpose for reading is really for fun,” teacher Lindsay Snyder told the State Journal. Leidel made news last month when his UW faculty ID was’t accepted at his local polling place on Election Day. So, in another example of his perseverance, he spent two hours getting a new state ID before returning to the polls to cast his vote. Schenk is throwing a birthday party for Leidel on Tuesday, and he says he has no intention of stopping his reading trips to the school. Source: people.com

  • The London Stage 1950-1959

    Rowman & Littlefield. 2014. ISBN: 9780810893085,0810893088. 1004 pages.

    Theatre in London has celebrated a rich and influential history, and in 1976 the first volume of J. P. Wearing’s reference series provided researchers with an indispensable resource of these productions. In the decades since the original calendars were produced, several research aids have become available, notably various reference works and the digitization of important newspapers and relevant periodicals. The second edition of The London Stage 1950–1959: A Calendar of Productions, Performers, and Personnel provides a chronological calendar of London shows from the first of January, 1950, through the 31st of December, 1959. The volume chronicles more than 3,100 productions at 52 major central London theatres during this period. For each production the following information is provided: Title Author Theatre Performers Personnel Opening and Closing Dates Number of Performances Other details include genre of the production, number of acts, and a list of reviews. A comment section includes other interesting information, such as plot description, first-night reception by the audience, noteworthy performances, staging elements, and details of performances in New York either prior to or after the London production. Among the plays staged in London during this decade were Look Back in Anger, One Way Pendulum, The Birthday Party, A Taste of Honey, Chicken Soup with Barley, Five Finger Exercise, The Hostage, and Waiting for Godot, as well as numerous musical comedies (British and American), foreign works, operas, ballets, and revivals of English classics. A definitive resource, this edition revises, corrects, and expands the original calendar. In addition, approximately 20 percent of the material—in particular, information of adaptations and translations, plot sources, and comment information—is new. Arranged chronologically, the shows are fully indexed by title, genre, and theatre. A general index includes numerous subject entries on such topics as acting, audiences, censorship, costumes, managers, performers, prompters, staging, and ticket prices. The London Stage 1950-1959 will be of value to scholars, theatrical personnel, librarians, writers, journalists, and historians.
