Warhol's Farrah Fawcett Painting Court Battle Won By Lover Ryan O'Neal


Farrah Fawcett Ryan Oneal Andy Warhol

The long-term lover of Farrah Fawcett, Ryan O'Neal, has triumphed over the University of Texas in an emotional court conflict to maintain ownership of a painting of her by Andy Warhol.

The 'Charlie's Angels' star passed away at the age of 62 in 2009 after a lengthy battle with cancer, leaving her own art collection to her old university. However, when her partner of 30 years was found to have kept one of two portraits by famous pop artist Warhol after it was spotted in a reality TV show, the institution took action in a move O'Neal branded as 'simple greed'.

His defence stated that Warhol, who the couple had known for more than 10 years before the paintings were produced, had created one piece for both Fawcett and O'Neal meaning that one of them was not Fawcett's to give away. The pair, although had been in a relationship for a long time, were never married and lived in separate houses though had a son in 1985 named Redmond, who O'Neal plans to bequeath the portrait to.

Video - Ryan O'neal Sports Unexplained Plaster At The Signing Of His New Book 'Both Of Us'


71-year-old actor Ryan O'Neal (Paper Moon, Barry Lyndon, A Bridge Too Far, Love Story) signs copies of his autobiography 'Both of Us' at Book Revue in Huntington, Long Island.

The 'Bones' actor appears to have a plaster on his nose for reasons unknown, but the mysterious ailment is most probably the least of his worries as O'Neal battles his way through stage two prostate cancer. Ryan was reportedly shocked when he discovered he had the disease but feels lucky that it was detected early and therefore a full recovery is expected

Irreconcilable Differences Review


Good
Back in the "glory days" of the mid-1990s, Irreconcilable Differences was a cable television mainstay. It played at least once every week and often ran two or three times on weekends. For whatever reason I watched it over and over again, and in the process, sort of fell in love with this totally imperfect yet sneakily lovable movie.

Over a decade after it vanished from the cable TV lazy weekend repertoire, the film is finally getting a DVD release -- fittingly, as part of a series called "The Lost Collection." After revisiting the movie, it sure is a far-fetched, silly trifle of a fairy tale, but it's still charming, and still believable in its own way. Irreconcilable Differences carries with it the same charisma that most Nancy Meyers-Charles Shyer comedies (Private Benjamin, Baby Boom, Father of the Bride) possess; these films are comfort food with a few sharp-edged nutrients added to the mix, stories about likable people who veer wildly off course but eventually find their way back to the Yellow Brick Road.

A Bridge Too Far Review


OK
There are star-studded projects, and then there's A Bridge Too Far, a World War II movie the likes of which would cost upwards of $300 million to make today. There are lots of bridges in the film, actually: The Allies aim to capture a series of them in German-occupied Holland as part of Operation Market-Garden, a byzantine plot that would theoretically cripple the German war machine in western Europe, where Germany is already on the run. However, Allied mistakes and an unexpected amount of German firepower nip the plan in the bud. The film is more a showcase for some searing acting -- and at three hours long, there's plenty of it -- than it is a classic war film. The battle scenes just don't come across as impressively as in other films of the era -- the fact that VW Beetles with plastic tank shells on them were used in lieu of some of the Panzers is just one sign that all the budget went to that exhaustive cast list.

The List Review


Unbearable
Clever adulterous judge/murderous hooker flick or unadulterated crap? (Answer: Unadulterated crap.) Put me to sleep almost immediately.

What's Up, Doc? Review


Good
What ever happened to joyously screwball comedies? Sure, once in a while a chaotic free-for-all like Rat Race will come along, but for the most part, fast-paced Marx Brothers-style farces are gone with the wind. One of the last pure examples may be What's Up, Doc?, Peter Bogdanovich's 1972 tribute to the great comedies of the '30s and '40s. This wacky sendup of every comedy cliché is what my mother would call a hoot from beginning to end, with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal leading a big and crazy supporting cast through all sorts of wacky gyrations.

When four people carrying identical luggage all check into a San Francisco hotel at the same time, you know right away that the movie will be driven by a big suitcase screwup. Uptight scientist Howard Bannister (O'Neal) is carrying a bunch of ancient rocks that he thinks emit interesting musical tones. Judy Maxwell (Streisand), a petty thief and mooch who is hanging around the hotel mainly to steal room service sandwiches, is carrying underwear. Another guest carries a load of diamonds, and the fourth has a stack of secret government papers. When everyone grabs the wrong bag, the comedy commences.

The Big Bounce (1969) Review


Grim
Alex March takes his sweet time getting us to even a small bounce, much less the titular big one.

In the parlance of Elmore Leonard's 1960s novel, a bounce refers to a crime, and party girl Nancy (Leigh Taylor-Young in one of her first screen roles) is really into bouncing. When drifter Jack Ryan (no, not that Jack Ryan), played by Ryan O'Neal, shows up, Nancy encourages Jack's bad-boy past, goading him into riding along on her minor crime wave. Eventually of course that takes a turn for the worse (this being an Elmore Leonard book), and while much of this is obviously intended as twisty comedy a la Get Shorty, television director Alex March never gets a firm grasp of the material, leaving the proceedings quite flat. The big finale couldn't be more unsatisfying.

Sink or Swim Review


OK
Also known as Hacks, which I think is a much better name. This little number went practically straight to video, despite its star-studded cast (just take a look!). Why? Because movies about making movies practically never work, and even when they do, it's hard to make yourself care. Sink or Swim tweaks the genre a little -- with Rea as a haggard writer who can't get his arms around an enormous task facing him down. When his "friends" swoop in to stab him in the back... well, it's a curious little picture, like I said.

The Driver Review


Good
No names. Literally. The Driver is one of those films where no character's name is ever given, and its too-cool-for-school sentiment bleeds through the entire production. Ryan O'Neal is the title character, a heist getaway driver with mad skills like you wouldn't believe. (The scene where he proves his merit in a parking garage -- all but demolishing the ride along the way -- is worth the price of admission alone.) Sadly, there's a plot attached to this, with Bruce Dern the cop who's always one frustrating step behind the driver, but this movie excels so greatly during its chase scenes that you'll forget about all that business.
