Richard Harrison is a cult figure among fans of B-movie, sword and sandal, spaghetti western and ‘euro spy’

By Jimy Tallal, special for the Malibu Times

The location of the jaw-dropping “Villa Francesca” estate and its immediate vicinity has got to be one of Malibu’s best-kept secrets, and owners Richard and Francesca Harrison would like it to stay that way — so mom is the word. When the couple bought the property in 1987, there were quite a few lore attached to it – including stories that the Beach Boys, Charles Manson, James Mason and Edgar Allen Poe’s grandson had all dragged there -down several times.

But an even more interesting story is the story of Richard Harrison himself. He came to Malibu more or less full-time in 1987 after spending nearly 30 years overseas as a lead actor in 135 films. He is little known in English-speaking countries, which suits him because he likes his privacy. But Harrison has become a cult figure among fans of B-movie, sword and sandal, spaghetti western and “euro-spy”.

It all started in the 1950s, when Harrison arrived in Hollywood fresh from Utah, hoping to find work in the film industry. Due to his physique and striking good looks, he was soon placed under contract by 20th Century Fox and given acting lessons; and landed small roles in the then-popular gladiator and Hercules genre – also known as “sword and sandal” films.

During this time, he was first introduced to Malibu – his friends, actor Jack Warden and director Charles Walters – had homes in The Colony and played penny-ante poker on the weekends.

Hoping to become more of a leading man than a minor player, Harrison was lured overseas to Italy on a three-movie deal. Italy started making American-style cowboy movies — “spaghetti westerns” — and Harrison got into that craze. Although he spoke no Italian, he spoke his lines in English, which were later dubbed into other languages.

Harrison’s first Italian film and starring role was “The Invincible Gladiator” (1962), but his best-known films from this era include “Gunfight at Red Sands” (1963) and “Secret Agent Fireball” (1965).

When Harrison turned down the lead role in “For a Fistful of Dollars,” the Italian filmmakers read him the names of three Hollywood actors sent to them and asked him to recommend one. The list included Clint Eastwood and Malibu resident James Brolin. Harrison knew all three and recommended Eastwood because he could ride a horse. The role catapulted Eastwood to stardom in the United States

Harrison learned horseback riding, sword fighting, and chariot racing; and often performed his own stunts because he was left-handed. “The tanks don’t have springs, and it was boom, boom, boom,” he recalls. “And if there were sand holes in the ground, the horses could walk in them and you would fall.”

The downside of doing these action movies was that safety rules were seemingly non-existent on overseas sets. “I saw a lot of people killed and injured in those movies,” Harrison said. “Even foul bullets can be powerful and almost accidentally blow a guy’s face off.” During a filming in Brazil, he saw an actor whose parachute did not open after jumping from the plane – it had been folded incorrectly. He saw people on set badly burned by explosions and fires in the Philippines, Turkey and Taiwan.

The advantage was living in Europe, with the great art and good food of the world. Harrison enjoyed “visiting new countries and new continents.” In Egypt, in his spare time, he climbed to the top of one of the great pyramids, which was illegal. “A lot of people fell and died in their attempts because the bricks were crumbling and it was dangerous. Looking from the top, there is no slope.

In Spain, Harrison got to know all the bullfighters and, because most came from poor families, said, “They were more worried about tearing up their [expensive] disguises than to die.

During the 1970s, Italians began making ultra-violent cop films, and he starred in several, including ‘Mad Dog Killer’ and ‘Beast with a Gun’ (1977). Quentin Tarantino was such a fan of “Beast” that he slipped an excerpt from it on a television watched by Bridget Fonda in his film “Jackie Brown” (1997).

When Italian cinema began to decline in the 1980s, Harrison set his sights on leading roles in so-called “Z” ninja films shot in Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Unfortunately, he learned too late that in Hong Kong they would dishonestly edit footage from different movies to make a new movie. So while Harrison may have shot scenes for one movie, those same scenes would be spliced ​​into ten other very low quality movies.

After decades of constant work, he returned to the United States and made a few more films before retiring. Speaking about his career, Harrison said, “I enjoyed it. I never had a big ego because I always thought about my luck and I was always treated well.

The Vancouver-based actor breaks new ground with a cutting-edge NFT sci-fi series, Marvel’s Hawkeye, and more.

From Comparing Hollywood’s Marvel Family Ratings With Sir Anthony Hopkins To Starring In The Latest Movie NFT GenZeros – Canadian actor/producer Alex Paunovic proves to be always at the forefront of performance and more.

The Vancouver-based company Paunovic has its eyes on the future. Perhaps that explains his stranglehold if you will – on the sci-fi genre.

During the Christmas holidays, his latest acting work came out into the world, my brother.

Hawk Eye is an extended miniseries about the Avengers character and sees Paunovic plays Ivan, leader of the Track Suit Mafia – antagonist Hawk Eye at the whim of probables – Wilson Fisk (Kingpin) played by Vincent D’Onofrio.

While the show is already a Christmas comedy, the Track Suit Mafia/Trust A Bro! A moving company brings light comic relief to the proceedings. Hawk Eye connects summer blockbuster Black Widow as well as the old daredevil and the Defenders Netflix series with Endgame, Thanos, et al.

Paunovic meanwhile, it’s been rocking the North Hollywood lifestyle for over a decade and counting – longer than the Marcel Cinematic Universe.

Moving from film to television has already seen him work twice with Hopkins, Michelle Pfeiffer, and in the Planet of the Monkeyfilm series. He has been in Hell on Wheels, Arctic Air, Doyle’s Republic, and Supernatural, battle star Galactica, The 100, Arrow and snowdrops. Paunovic completed five seasons as a lead actor on Van Helsing last year before Hawk Eye hit the bullseye this Christmas.

During the confinement he filmed Zero touch— a pandemic-related movie starring Anthony Hopkins that spawned a sequel that’s being filmed right now. While Zero touch was the first Hollywood movie to exist on the blockchain – its sequel the first Hollywood movie to shoot in Antarctica; another first.

“When everything was locked down, I was very lucky to be involved and it turned into a trilogy.”

How does shooting a movie on a laptop change his approach to acting?

“The whole look is the same work and preparation you would – but the same background but the stakes are higher. Interesting in my own house and the decorator asking to make sure a light is on, or that I record before a take,” he says.

“It’s something new to do, something brand new. I love being able to create differently every time.”

“Now we travel the world.”

However, by Paunovic the other foot at this moment is firmly anchored in GenZeros – a cutting-edge, cross-platform episodic NFT series.

“We shoot ten 5/6 minute episodes and then comic panels. However, it’s so new – viewers can make a part of the show their own, and artists are involved on all levels. It’s crazy. It’s a new medium NFT world explodes. My whole role is the creative aspect, but what I love is that it’s artist-driven,” he says.

“When they dropped the NFT – they received a good response. House of Kibba need more than just a 2D drop – so I got some Van Helsing boys to show that they are leading the project.

The series is set 2200 years after an alien invasion and the ten factions fight to control the future of the world. Van Helsing matt scribes Venables and Jeremy Smith will serve as showrunners and are executive producers with Neil Stevenson-Moore. Kimani Ray Smith conducts.

“We have a phenomenal cast in place.”

It helps that the show is artist-driven — it shows where we’re going with the project — and the viewer can have fractional ownership.

The ‘GenZeros Universe’ includes the live-action series, comics, and collectibles.

“We could also drop NFT in the show, or practical things – props that we make for filming – could drop a piece from the show. It’s an exciting space to be part of. We go from a talky-talky scene to an animated comic that can show a big fight scene – have the viewer flip through the pages – then back to live action.

The hope is that the series’ final episode drops in San Diego at Comic Con in March 2022.

“I’ve never had an office gig before – but here are these guys breaking down the story. To be able to create something out of nothing is great,” he says.

“We’re working hard to get in front of a camera to make a living – to have a community that’s artist-led, supporting each other. It’s a whole new space NFT and realization. All we can do is try. I’m having fun seeing what can happen and where we can go with that.

End of February – Paunovic says four episodes should have been shot. When it comes to action figures – while GenZeros might have – that’s old hat for Paunovic who saw action figures for a handful of his characters there.

“It’s been a treat to be part of this universe. If they have an Ivan tracksuit figurine, of course, I’ll buy some.”

GenZeros could be a new way to produce films – and art as a whole.

Of course, that a building fell on Paunovic at the end of Hawk Eye, or it has been miniaturized, it cannot speak. marvel’s nes, or non-disclosure agreements are legendary. When he first auditioned, it was also under a cone of silence and mystery.

“When I auditioned – I did a read, sent a video. Then I was told after I booked a Marvel job.

His lips are sealed as to what happens next beyond GenZeros.

“There are a few other projects that I can’t talk about. We will go at the end of March with the Zero Contact trilogy, still filming GenZeros all over the world,” he said.

“Then some really cool things happen from April through summer.”

From born and raised in North Winnipeg, to Vancouver, Hollywood and beyond with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Antarctica and beyond with NFT.

“So crazy.”

Washington [US], Jan 16 (ANI): Primetime Emmy-winning actor Brian Cox has called out several celebrities who rubbed him the wrong way, including ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp.
According to Page Six, in his new memoir “Put the Rabbit in the Hat,” Scottish actor Brian Cox called out many actors in the Hollywood film fraternity and in particular actor Johnny Depp for manhandling him.
“It would have been a money maker, but of all the parts of this movie it was the most thankless,” Cox wrote, of the Governor’s turndown in the ‘Pirates’ franchise, which ultimately went to Jonathan Pryce. .
“Also, I would have ended up doing it movie after movie and I would have missed all the other great things I did,” he added.
He continued in excerpts obtained by GQ’s Page Six, “Another thing about ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is that it’s really the ‘Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow’ show, and Depp, although I be sure he is, is so exaggerated, so overrated.”

The ‘Succession’ actor continued, “I mean ‘Edward Scissorhands.’ Let’s face it, if you show up with hands like that and pale, scarred makeup, you don’t have to do anything. And he didn’t. And then he did even less.”
The Golden Globe winner went on to suggest Depp’s star power is slowly fading, adding, “But people love him. Or they used to love him. They don’t love him as much these days, though. sure. If Johnny Depp went for Jack Sparrow now, they’d give it to Brendan Gleeson.”
Cox also took the time to praise director Spike Lee, who the star said put actor Ed Norton “in his place” while filming “25th Hour” in 2002.
“Ed Norton was in the movie and he’s a nice guy but kinda boring because he considers himself a writer-director,” Cox wrote.
“He and I had this scene in the bar owned by my character. Spike set it up impeccably, but Ed came in and said, ‘Now I’ve been working on the script and I have some ideas. and I would like you to think about it. I rewrote some stuff in there…” the actor said.
“Spike was like, ‘Oh, well, let me see.’ He glanced at Ed’s notes and then said, “Well, that’s very interesting. Okay, so what we’re going to do now is…” and put Ed very firmly in his place,” Cox concluded. (ANI)

Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey in Zagreb to film Jakov Sedlar’s film Franjo Tudjman https://carolchanning.org/hollywood-actor-kevin-spacey-in-zagreb-to-film-jakov-sedlars-film-franjo-tudjman/ Fri, 14 Jan 2022 16:25:50 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/hollywood-actor-kevin-spacey-in-zagreb-to-film-jakov-sedlars-film-franjo-tudjman/ January 14, 2022 – Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is currently in Zagreb for the shooting of a film by Franjo Tudjman directed by Jakov Sedlar.

January 14, 2022 – Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is currently in Zagreb for the shooting of a film by Franjo Tudjman directed by Jakov Sedlar.

The right-wing newspaper Hrvatski Tjednik is the only publication in Croatia to have had the opportunity to speak with Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey, who arrived in Zagreb a few weeks ago to star in a film about Croatia’s first president Franjo Tudjman , directed by Jakov Sedlar, Jutarnji List writing.

The article points out that Spacey arrived quietly. The controversial Hollywood movie star has revealed that he has been working on the project for the first Croatian president for eight months, and very intensively for about three months.

“It’s my usual work process. Tudjman was a fascinating person, certainly the most important person in the creation of your country,” he said.

Spacey said it didn’t take director Sedlar long to persuade him to accept the role of Tudjman.

“We are friends, and I know he wouldn’t try to do anything bad to me. He spoke very honestly and with a lot of passion about Tudjman; he wanted me to play his friend Franjo and we quickly accepted.”

At the request of journalists, he tried to describe how he felt about Tudjman.

“Based on his available interviews and videos, it is clear that he was a very passionate man who believed in his ideas and in his Croatian people. I think he belongs to that older generation of politicians who were statesmen, not administrators, who thought the people needed a leader to follow, and he did everything to make it so. He was happy, especially on the freedom train. I loves his sincere passion which is lacking in many politicians today.

At the end of the interview, Spacey said he loved Croatia, especially Dubrovnik and Hvar, which he had visited before, and that he loved Zagreb. At the end he said that Croats are tough people and he is sure they will rebuild Zagreb after the earthquake.

In the interview, he did not want to talk about his problems back home in the United States regarding the charges against him for sexual abuse, as he is confident that the court will make a fair decision.

Will Smith, “King Richard”

Denzel Washington, “The Tragedy of Macbeth”

Cumberbatch, Garfield, Smith and Washington are all set to repeat at the Oscars, setting up a true clash of the titans for the win. But it’s a big shock to see Javier Bardem here for his feisty performance as Desi Arnaz in ‘Being the Ricardos’: SAG voters clearly responded to this behind-the-scenes story of TV actors working on an iconic show .

Bardem beat some pretty strong contenders in this category, including Peter Dinklage for “Cyrano” and Leonardo DiCaprio for “Don’t Look Up.” Given that DiCaprio’s film continues to gain momentum – Netflix says it’s the second most-watched film ever on the streamer – fifth place in this Oscar race remains up for grabs.

Jessica Chastain, “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”

Olivia Colman, “The Lost Girl”

Lady Gaga, “House of Gucci”

Jennifer Hudson, “Respect”

Nicole Kidman, “Being the Ricardos”

Award voters are sucked in by a compelling transformation into a real person, and this category delivers it in spades: Chastain, Gaga, Hudson, and Kidman have all played real-life characters, and the work they put into those roles is obvious. You’d have thought then that Kristen Stewart’s acclaimed turn as Princess Diana in “Spencer” would be right up SAG’s aisle, but voters have been surprisingly reluctant to crown her.

If Stewart couldn’t even be nominated by SAG, her chances at the Oscars seem very fragile. I wonder then if an Oscar battle is brewing between two women in search of their second Oscar: Kidman, who transforms into Lucille Ball in “Being the Ricardos”, and Colman, both prickly and likeable as troubled mother in “The Lost Daughter.”

Belfast

“CODA”

“Don’t look up”

“Gucci House”

“King Richard”

While this is considered SAG’s top category, there’s less of a correlation to the Best Picture race: Last year’s Oscar winner “Nomadland” wasn’t even nominated for the Best Picture. outstanding SAG award, as the guild prefers to honor a large ensemble instead of a film dominated by just one or two performances.

Editor’s Note: Colman Domingo (Zola, Ma Rainey’s black stockings) is one of many black actors whose careers were inspired by Sidney Poitier who broke racial barriers to become Hollywood’s first black movie star and the first black man to win the Academy Award for Best Actor. In an essay for Deadline after Poitier’s death at the age of 94, Domingo writes about his meeting with Poitier and the profound impact that meeting – as well as Poitier’s life and career – had on him.

To M. Poitier, with love.

We mourn you. We celebrate and cherish you. You have been and will always be our guide. When the world tells us we don’t matter, you’ve never hesitated. Fire, spirit, grace, humor and humanity, you were born with the share of lions. A Hollywood star par excellence. A true Broadway legend. A civil rights icon. A gentle human.

In January 2015, I received an invitation from Oprah Winfrey. To join her, Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo and the extraordinary cast of Selma to honor the Legends who paved the way. I was playing in London’s West End at Scottsboro boys. In the movie Selma, I played Ralph Abernathy, Dr King’s right-hand man. And we had to show our heartfelt movie and take the stage and honor legends like John Lewis, Diane Nash, CT. Vivian, Berry Gordy, Dick Gregory among others and To mister with love, himself, Sidney Poitier. There was no way I would miss being in this lively room. I made my request to leave for a weekend to be in Santa Barbara. When I say “ask”, for the first time in my career, it was more of a request. There is no way I will miss this historic moment. This invitation does not come back often. Especially for a kid in West Philly who didn’t even expect to ask for this “request” from his lodge in Trafalgar Square.

So I left. I wasn’t rolling on the money, so I booked a flight on an airline that would take me from London to Zurich to Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. I treated myself to Comfort Plus on my return as I was literally going from Gatwick Airport on my call time to the Garrick Theater.

Personal archives

Oprah laid down the red carpet for this casting. On the hotel grounds, I met Smokey Robinson and his lovely wife. Legends from all disciplines were dressed in their finery to celebrate this momentous occasion. There was a Legends Ball where we, the cast of Selma, stood in front of these icons and read a beautiful poem written by Pearle Cleage to honor this moment.

The next day we all traveled by caravan in SUVs to Oprah’s breathtaking house, aptly called The Promised Land. Oprah and Stedman [Graham] stood under a welcoming tree and shook hands with everyone who came to celebrate.

Personal archives

We all found ourselves sitting casually on the valley where some sort of awakening would take place. We went to church at Oprah’s. Ava kissed me and introduced me to Tyler Perry who was standing next to her. I smiled so big as I walked towards fellowship with the others. And then I turned over on my right shoulder and there he was. Smiling straight at me like we know each other. Mr. Poitier. He was sitting a few rows on what, in my memory, was a small hill as the seats rose. His eyes sparkled with what seemed to be all the secrets in the world. My body just led me up to this giant and we gently shook hands. “How are you?” he said. I don’t remember what I said, but I’m sure I said it right. My heart was in my hands all weekend, in silent admiration for every detail. It was the deepest moment for me.

You see, Mr. Poitier’s career was indeed the North Star for actors and artists like me. When I struggled as an actor in the Bay Area and constantly auditioned for thugs and drug dealers, Mr. Poitier said, you are so much more, create the job and keep going. When I trod the stage and worked on complex portrayals of black men, I turned to Mr. Poitier to know there was an audience and room for it, keep going. We can challenge the system that sometimes turns to the most marginal representations and celebrate them as our best, keep going. We all looked to Mr. Poitier to find out that a glass ceiling had been shattered and that he belonged to generations of Morgan Freemans, Denzel Washingtons, Danny Glovers, Sam Jacksons and all his “children” – including me. – to take over. and keep trying to stand on the shoulders of his great heritage. He had such huge shoulders that carried an entire nation with his artistic heritage, and it is no easy task. But we will try. We will continue.

This weekend we cry and cherish, pay homage and meditate on all that Mr. Poitier has done for all of us, brown-skinned boys from humble backgrounds, worked as a dishwasher, walked the boards, a forged a unique path and is deeply rooted in American art culture as an actor, director, producer and deep human. I thank him. My brothers thank him. Really and deliciously for his immense service. He moved the needle for all of us. May we make him proud. May this industry, which aims to be more diverse, inclusive and fair, make him proud. We will all look to this pole star.

To M. Poitier, with love. May he be the beacon for all of us.

It was also reported that the ceremony was unable to find a broadcast partner for the year or any celebrities wishing to participate, according to Variety.

It comes after the Globes were hit with boycotts over its diversity and ethics scandal, with a host of big names slamming the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

NBC has also decided to end the show due to the HFPA’s lack of diversity.

    Cruise reportedly returned his three Golden Globe trophies to the HFPA, which has been criticized for a lack of diversity as well as ethical lapses.

    The 58-year-old actor won the Globes for Best Actor for Jerry Maguire, Best Actor for Born July 4 and Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia.

    Those performances also earned Oscar nominations for the Mission Impossible star.

    The HFPA is a non-profit organization made up of journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry.

  • Oscars vs. Golden Globes

    An important distinction between the two awards shows is that the Golden Globes also honor television, while the Oscars exclusively honor cinema.

    Golden Globe winners are chosen by a small group of 93 HFPA members, but Oscar winners are chosen by around 60,000 industry professionals who are AMPAS members.

    The Globes are also a bigger event than the Oscars, with free food and drink, while the Oscars usually only feature the awards show, with the rest of the celebration taking place after the party.

    Finally, compared to the Oscars, the Golden Globes have more categories.

  • ‘Nervous’

    Traditionally, the Golden Globes have been known as the boldest and wettest little brother of the most prestigious Academy Awards.

    In 2011, Robert Downey Jr. joked that he “didn’t know if an actress can do her best job until I have slept with her”.

    And Avengers star Jeremy Renner, 50, joked about Jennifer Lopez’s impressive “globes” on stage in 2015.

  • HFPA controversy

    NBC dropped out of the awards show last year.

    It emerged after it emerged that not a single one of the 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was black.

    He made a series of changes in an attempt to settle the scandal.

    But the move failed to persuade the boycott stars to participate or to broadcast the event live.

Gal Gadot addressed the backlash to his star-studded “Imagine” cover almost two years after the “grinding my teeth” video went viral.

the Wonder woman actor, in a new interview with In the style published Tuesday, January 4), admitted that the infamous social media post was “in bad taste” despite its best intentions.

On March 19, 2020, Gadot posted a celebrity rendition of John Lennon’s song on Instagram to inspire togetherness despite isolation at the start of the Covid pandemic.

Leading Hollywood actors like Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Natalie Portman and Amy Adams had joined Gadot to sing different lines from the 1971 track in a video that had garnered more than 10.5 million views since it was uploaded.

However, a large number of social media users said the coverage was “offline”.

“Honey, look at all the rich people singing Imagine,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Everything will be fine now, even though we both lost our jobs. It was so much better than money and not cranky at all.

Gadot reflected on criticism of his video which included a group of “millionaire singers and actors singing ‘Imagine No Possession'” amid widespread uncertainty and fear of the pandemic.

“The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it happened [to the US] in the same way. I could see where everything was going. Corn [the video] was premature. Now was not the right time, and it was not the right thing. It was in bad taste, ”the actor said.

“All with pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the nail on the head, do you?” she added.

Celebrities like Chris O’Dowd, who also featured on the controversial “Imagine” cover, Nick Cave, Judge Rinder and Ricky Gervais were among those who backed criticism against the “panic-causing video” after its release.
