"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Monte Hale Centennial

James Dean with Monte Hale on the set of "Giant"

Who?Listen we're not huge western devotees but nevertheless we tip our imaginary cowboy hats today to the bygone tradition of singing cowboys on film.(You know the kind if only from watching Alden Ehrenreich work such charismatic wonders as one of 'em in the Coen BrosHail Caesar!).Monte Hale,born on this day 100 years ago in Oklahoma,was among the last of such stars...

The 25 Youngest Men Ever Nominated for Best Actor

by Nathaniel R

Timothée Chalamet photographed by Craig McDean for Interview magazine

With the fine coming of age romantic dramaCall Me By Your Namenow in limited release,audiences can join critics in swooning over the revelatory work of Timothée Chalamet's as the preternaturally sophisticated but hormonally confused Elio.He won the Gotham Awards "Breakthrough"award last night.Should his incredible performance earn him an Academy nomination for Best Leading Actor,he will be the third youngest man to ever receive that honor (he turns 22 the day after Christmas)...

Only Mickey Rooney and Jackie Cooper were younger in their Oscar races and both happened in Oscar's first dozen years (!) when the Academy's habits and fetishes and aversions were still being sorted out.They quickly turned against really young actors.While many women have won Best Actress in their 20s,it's only happened once for a man.The youngest leading male winner is currently Adrien Brody who won his Oscar forThe Pianist(2002) just three weeks before he turned 30.

But who are the youngest male leads ever nominated?Read on for the dewiest 25.Tell us how many you've seen and who is your favorite...

Martin Landau (1928-2017)

Landau at an event honoring Tim Burton last yearWith well over 100 credits to his name no one can say thatMartin Landaudidn't have a fine and enduring career.But for such a fantastic talent,perhaps he remained undersung.After a brief stint as a cartoonist,he found his calling with acting and nabbed his first TV guest spots in the mid '50s.By the end of the decade he appeared in his first classic (Alfred Hitchcock'sNorth by Northwest) but it wouldn't be his last.For the remainder of his long long career he toggled between TV (most notably three seasons in the mix ofMission Impossiblein the 60s and leading the cult favoriteSpace 1999in the 70s) and intermittent movie success.

You can't call it his late 80s/early 90s success a comeback,given that he never quit working,but it was a revival and a rediscovery...

Q&A Part 1: No Actresses!Whatever Will We Talk About?

To try something a little different I asked y'all to ask me questions that werenotactress related this week.Hold me,I'm scared.

But sometimes you gotta push out of the comfort zone.Some people disobeyed -- sorry,not answering those!Some people gave me ideas for much longer posts.Others took it quite literally just reversing the genders of a question they'd normally ask.But a lot of interesting questions were on offer this week so we'll split this baby into two this week,feeling generous.Part two tomorrow.

Here's the8 questionswe're answering today including but not limited to favorite (male) stars,awesome film sets,horror flicks,and costume dramas...

DAN: What film set,taking in mind color schemes,evocative moods,and lighting,would you most like to inhabit.Ignore modern conveniences like air conditioning and pleasant smells.

NATHANIEL: This question is so open-ended so we'll start with the movie that popped into mind IMMEDIATELY whilst reading it and surprised me becasue it wouldn't leave:Vertigo.

There are so many great rooms you could imagine spending hours in.Midge's apartment is like bohemian artist / spinster heaven.And what a view.And who wouldn't make a multi-course dinner reservation at that red redredrestaurant that Scottie spots Madeleine in?
