Katharine Ross' Restraining Order Thrown Out After She Fails To Attend Court


Katharine Ross

The restraining order from Katharine Ross against her daughter has been thrown out by a judge after both parties were not present at court for a scheduled second hearing. In March, 2011, Ross requested legal protection from her daughter Cleo, after an attack at their Malibu family home in California. Cleo is Ross' only child with her husband, actor Sam Elliot.

Ross claimed that her daughter Cleo, who is 26-years-old, has been violent ever since her early teens, and this culminated in a death threat and an attack recently. Said attack was explained in legal papers filed at Los Angeles County Court, which stated that Cleo stabbed Ross with a pair of scissors during a 911 phone call.

In a previous hearing, a judge granted Ross a temporary restraining order, which called for Cleo to leave the family home and then proceed to stay at least 100 yards (91 metres) from her mother. In this second hearing, both Ross and her daughter were ordered to return to court on 30th March, 2011, in order to determine the extension of the restraining order. As neither showed up for the hearing, the judge has decided to throw the case out.

Ross Wins Restraining Order Against Daughter


Katharine Ross

Actress Katharine Ross has won a restraining order against her daughter over allegations the 26 year old stabbed her with a pair of scissors during a violent incident at the family home.

The Graduate star filed papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court last week (ends05mar11) requesting protection from Cleo, her only child with actor husband Sam Elliott.

In the legal documents, Ross alleges Cleo has been physically violent and verbally abusive since she was 12 or 13 years old and she "suddenly lost her temper" at the family home in Malibu, California on 2 March (11), according to Tmz.com.

Ross claims Cleo "began to threaten me. She said, 'I want to kill you,'" and when she went to call the police, she alleges Cleo cut the phone line with a pair of scissors and then "jabbed" her in the arm at least six times.

Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid Review


Essential
Calling Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid a great Western is like calling Dom Perignon a really great bottle of grape juice. Yeah, that's correct, but you're missing the point entirely.

Butch and Sundance is more than a Western: It's an iconic, American experience, a classic adventure tale, and a singular slice of late-'60s moviemaking that has never really been repeated. The story is a surprisingly, "mostly" accurate tale of two of history's best-known outlaws. The film comprises two major sequences: First, the duo robs a series of trains on the frontier, then spends a lengthy amount of time on the run from the hired guns the railroad is paying to hunt them down. The heat gets so severe that it leads them to the second sequence: Self-imposed exile to dingy Bolivia, where they rob banks instead, only to have the federales try to hunt them down. The final moments of the film are unforgettable.

The Stepford Wives (1975) Review


OK
This oft-referenced tale of suburban wives who suddenly lose their vibrant individualism and become "perfect housewives" may earn points for becoming a piece of Americana, but it's hardly excellent filmmaking. Little more than a knockoff of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Stepford Wives makes one tragic mistake: The women in town actually seem more interesting after their transformation than before it, when they come across as whiny and petulant, and little else.

The Graduate Review


Essential
A rare, introspective masterpiece about a recent college grad (Dustin Hoffman) and his jaded outlook on life... which leads him into an ill-advised fling with the older, married Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). A true classic and the spawn of the immortal one-word line of advice: "Plastics."

Hoffman is unforgettable, as is Bancroft (supposedly old enough to be Hoffman's mother but actually only 6 years his senior in real life). Of course, Buck Henry and Calder Willingham's adaptation of Charles Webb's novel is what makes this picture so perfectly solid ("Mrs. Robinson... you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you?"), and who can forget the masterful direction of Mike Nichols, here in his prime, setting up that immortal shot of Hoffman as seen beneath the bent knee of Bancroft? And Simon & Garfunkel's soundtrack is also perfectly apt, unforgettable to this day.

Donnie Darko Review


Very Good

Jimmy Stewart would never have been able to cope with the giant rabbit that haunts Donnie Darko's demented waking nightmares. This thing is no friendly cottontail like Harvey. It's a macabre-looking monster with a hard, malformed pewter face, snaggled teeth and ominous blank eyes without pupils.

This rabbit's name is Frank, and he may or may not be a figment of the heavily medicated, intensely tormented imagination of the delusional teenage boy at the center of the engrossingly bizarre, mind-bending fringe film "Donnie Darko."

Whatever Frank is, it's his hypnotic influence over the eerily vexed title character (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) that launches him into a surreal labyrinth of increasingly esoteric encounters, starting the night Donnie sleepwalks away from his parents' house, seduced by the chilling sound of Frank's resonating, semi-synthetic voice. The world will end in 28 days, five hours, 52 minutes and 12 seconds, the diabolic bunny intones.

Oz Slams The Idea Of Stepford Cameos


The Stepford Wives Frank Oz Nicole Kidman Katharine Ross

The Stepford Wives director Frank Oz refused to invite any of the original film's stars to make cameo appearances in his remake - because it would have damaged the credibility of the film.

Oz - whose version stars Nicole Kidman and MATTHEW BRODERICK - always feared giving 1975 stars Katharine Ross and PAULA PRENTISS screen time would damage the seriousness of the central relationship.

And now Oz has completed work on the remake, he's delighted he opted against the idea.
