Joan Collins Auctioning Love Letters Addressed To Her From Warren Beatty


Joan Collins Warren Beatty

Legendary actress Dame Joan Collins is having something of a clear-out session, with the announcement that several personal items, including love letters written to her by Warren Beatty during the early ‘60s, are to go up for auction.

The sale, which features hundreds of objects from her home including lavish wardrobe items, sketches by her son Alexander Newley, furniture and art, takes place at Julien’s auction house on Wednesday December 16th.

However, it’s the two letters that are likely to attract the most interest. Beatty, who was recently identified as the subject of Carly Simon’s classic song ‘You’re So Vain’, was briefly engaged to Collins when they lived in New York in 1961 in Paul Newman’s apartment, both relative unknowns at that point in their careers.

How Harry Reems Went From Lighting Guy To Lead Actor On 'Deep Throat'


Linda Lovelace Adam Brody Harry Reems Jack Nicholson Warren Beatty

Harry Reems, the porn actor turned realtor who died aged 65 this week, lived a turbulent life after landing the lead role in the 1972 adult movie Deep Throat, with Linda Lovelace. His wife Jeanne told the New York Times that her husband died on Tuesday (March 19, 2013) in Utah after battling multiple health issues, including pancreatic cancer.

The actor - who will be played by clean-cut actor Adam Brody in a Lovelace biopic later this year - was never in-mind to star in Deep Throat. In fact, Reems was merely working as a lighting guy on the infamous porn flick, before being called in after the original star was unable to perform his duties. Ahem. Reems played the doctor helping Linda Lovelace with a sexually sensitive area in her throat. The movie - the first adult movie to be widely shown in theatres - grossed $600 million at the box-office, though Reems claimed he only received $600 for his role. 

The movie wasn't without its detractors and Reems was convicted of obscenity in 1976, though the verdict was overturned after heavyweight movies stars Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty got involved. Nevertheless, the jail sentence and trail put Reems under enormous amounts of pressure and set him on a crippling path to alcoholism.

Reds Review


Essential
Audacious and ambitious even by today's standards, Warren Beatty's Reds still retains a certain humble nature to its sprawling, ambidextrous narrative. Just shy of 200 minutes and one of the last films by an American director to feature an intermission, Beatty's sickle-and-hammer romance seems even more sweeping when one consider what passes for "epic" these days (All the King's Men?).

A lecture in 1912 brought together Jack Reed (Warren Beatty) and Louise Bryant (Diane Keaton) and that was beginning of a beau... well, actually, the relationship was more turbulent than beautiful. Though Bryant was married and Reed was a full-time politico, their relationship grew through ebb-and-flow from the days after their meeting till the Red Scare of the late 1910s and early 1920s. The relationship even survives Louise's romance with famed playwright Eugene O'Neill (Jack Nicholson) and Reed's rigorous commitment to the Communist revolution in Russia and in America.

Bugsy Review


Excellent
After writing, directing and starring in one of the most politically intriguing films of the 1990s, Bulworth, Warren Beatty vanished. He only resurfaced in 2001 in the deplorable Town & Country, which had been finished since 1999. There was no loud announcement of quitting Hollywood, he just stopped acting and started complaining about the Governator.

A consummate leftist, Beatty was always into politics and into political filmmaking, or films that took on big topics at least. So, the question must be asked why he would decide to star as one of the most flamboyant, vain gangsters of all time, Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. Not only did he act in the film, he was the reason it started. Beatty wrangled up James Toback to write the thing and then snagged Barry Levinson to direct the picture, and decided that the focus of the film should be the end of Siegel's career/life.
