    This year, ask the Oscar questions that really matter

    Rosalind Russell: The Fast Talking Dame
    She was wicked in "The Women," the girl in "His Girl Friday," the fast-talking dame whom you didn't mess with in countless films and, most memorably, as the ab-fab "Auntie Mame." She was Rosalind Russell, and she grew up in Waterbury. The Courant...

    Q&A: Amanda Drinkall of 'Venus in Fur'
    Amanda Drinkall may have grown up in a conservative Presbyterian family in Oswego, Ill., but that doesn't mean that her family isn't supportive of her decision to step into a pair of stiletto-heeled boots—and not much else—for her role in...

     'Peter and the Starcatcher' writer Rick Elice flying high
    NEW YORK — Playwright Rick Elice calls the memorabilia-filled study in his Upper West Side apartment "the garage." It's a good term for the workshop of a self-described workaholic whose method is a combination of technical rigor, restless...

    Director Howard Hawks, in focus
    Howard Hawks never met a movie genre he couldn't adapt to splendidly. In a career that spanned the silent era to 1970, Hawks directed gangster melodrama (1932's "Scarface") screwball comedies (1938's "Bringing Up Baby"), westerns (1948's "Red River"),...

     'The Newsroom' has its critics, fans among journalists

    Review: 'His Girl Friday' still a crackling good story
    This review has been updated. See below for details. Clattering typewriters, jangling telephones and a haze of cigarette smoke, once journalism's inalienable backdrop, can no longer be found in any newsroom on Earth. But those who crave a glimpse into...
