book: The Blind Man of Seville (2003) by Robert Wilson

By John Grant on Apr 30, 2019 From Noirish

The Blind Man of Seville is a crime novel in that it’s a novel about crime. However, the crimes at its focus aren’t those described on the wrapper — a series of brutal murders in modern-day Seville — but those depicted in what seems initially to be the novel’s backstory... Read full article


Recorded Live (1975, S.S. Wilson)

By Andrew Wickliffe on Jan 21, 2019 From The Stop Button

Facts about

This was, perhaps, the only box office disaster in the history of Hollywood to have received so many Oscar nominations (10), to have won as many Oscars as it did (5), and to have received so much critical acclaim.

The film, a pet project and labor of love for producer Darryl F. Zanuck, was a notorious box-office flop in its day, despite good reviews and several Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Actor, and despite the fact that when it played the Roxy in New York, it grossed more than any one movie had in a single theatre up to then. Zanuck was so heartbroken over the movie's failure that he forbade anyone who came into his presence to ever mention the film again.
