    Mike Silverman dies at 90; touted himself as "the Realtor to the stars"
    For decades, Mike Silverman touted himself as "the Realtor to the stars," drawing swoons from the news media here and abroad both for his movie-star clientele and his movie-star looks. In his case, the nickname wasn't just a publicist's creation but a...
  • Review: 'Of Time and the City'

    Review: 'Of Time and the City'
    "Of Time and the City" is a difficult film to describe but a distinct pleasure to experience. A cinematic essay, a documentary and a memory piece, all at the same time, it is more than anything an unapologetically poetic film that allows British...

    Review: 'Trying to Get Good: The Jazz Odyssey of Jack Sheldon'
    If the name Jack Sheldon doesn't ring a bell, consider this: Music elite and bebop fans widely consider him the greatest living jazz trumpeter. This unheralded maestro, a founder of the West Coast jazz movement, has, since the 1950s, performed...
  • Labor Day parties in L.A.

    Labor Day parties in L.A.
    If this summer's party season was any indication, Labor Day weekend is going to be a scorcher. The annual end of the pool party season will see the return of the Wet party to the Roosevelt Hotel pool (which is free, to boot), the annual White Party at the...
  • "American Idol:" And the Winnah Is...

     
    Yup, that should just about do it. The fat lady has sung and she's not even fat, and she's not even a lady: She's a he and he's from Utah, accessorized with a stage dad from hell, a golden......
  • 'Once and For All We're Gonna Tell You Who We Are So Shut Up and Listen' at Freud Playhouse

     
    Like most teenagers, their blare precedes them. The sound is raucous, almost violent, as though a living room is being invaded by savages and its contents thrown in the air like confetti. These hormonal hoodlums are practically begging an authority......
  • Opera review: Long Beach Opera stages 'Good Soldier Schweik'

     
    Robert Kurka’s “The Good Soldier Schweik” is a sassy opera. Long Beach Opera is a sassy company. So there was never need to wonder whether this plucky American cult opera from the 1950s should suit the American opera company known......
  • Farrah Fawcett missing from 'In Memoriam' at Oscars

     
    Though Farrah Fawcett's main claim to fame was television, the decision to leave her out of the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars has caused quite a stir. Fawcett appeared in 14 feature films in her lifetime. Although she was first featured as eye candy...
  • ‘American Idol’: ‘Big Mike’ Lynche, Lee DeWyze do it their way on Frank Sinatra night

     
    Harry Connick Jr. played for the five singers on “American Idol” and predicted it would be a great night. I'm just wild about Harry, but he's no prognosticator. It was a very uneven evening, and thank goodness for the last two singers....
  • Album review: Keith Jarrett & Charlie Haden's 'Jasmine'

     
    Given Keith Jarrett's decades-long tradition of either performing solo or with his “Standards” trio of Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette, the simple fact that the mercurial pianist recorded with a new collaborator is newsworthy. Of course, when that...
  • Big screen, small folk: An elf filmology

    Don't think elves go to the movies? What do you think they do during the off-season? Of course, none of those elves see as many movies as I do. Reindeer have lots of time to take in the flicks. You know how sometimes the projector in your local multiplex...
