  • If I had access to a time machine I would set the date for Monday, Aug. 4, 1958. Location: MGM Studios in Culver City, Calif. That was when the shooting began for the historic, timeless and ever classic movie, “Some Like It Hot.”

    There is director Billy Wilder always in perpetual motion, never still, pacing back and forth with the ever present cigarette perched between his thin lips. Jack Lemmon is patient, waiting for his cue. Tony Curtis is laughing about his next scene. And there is the radiant, stunning Marilyn Monroe.

  • The generation that grew up on Saturday afternoon matinees is retiring and ready to relax at the movies, but some don’t like what they see.

    Locals seniors, age 60 and older, voiced their opinion on what kind of movies Hollywood should be making for their demographic. And that demographic is large.
