Arthur Hiller (1923-2016) and "Making Love"

Arthur Hiller with his Jean Hersholt Huminatarian AwardOscar nominated Canadian born Hollywood director Arthur Hiller died yesterday at 92 years of age.Though he's best remembered for the 1970 mega-hitLove Story  --so popular in its day it would have been equivalent to aJurassic Worldat the box office today (no really) -- his career was actually quite varied.He did dramas,romances,buddy comedies,period pieces,you name it.

Among his best known films which is your favorite?

  • The Americanization of Emily (1964)
  • The Out of Towners (1970)
  • Love Story (1970)
  • Plaza Suite (1971)
  • Man of La Mancha (1972)
  • Silver Streak (1976)
  • The In-Laws (1979)
  • Making Love (1982)
  • Author!Author!(1982)
  • Outrageous Fortune (1987)
  • See No Evil,Hear No Evil (1989)

Outrageous Fortunewas probably my favorite of his films - Bette Midler & Shelley Long were so funny together --  but the film that's the most interesting,historically,isMaking Loveas it was the very first mainstream LGBT film...

The Onion"Katie Holmes Glad She Can Finally Practice Scientology in Peace."Hee!
The Advocatehas a historical interview piece on the making of the gay dramaMaking Love(1982) a landmark movie for Hollywood.I had NO idea that Kate Jackson was originally set to play Meryl Streep's role inKramer vs.Kramer(1979).Crazy huh?
My New Plaid PantsGratuitous Harrison Ford.I totally forgot to celebrate Mr.Indiana Jones while the rest of the internet was doing so.Like most people who were alive during the 70s and 80s I kind of love him.JA's post has some really fun young Harrison photos.How have I never seenFrantic?

Spielberg and Zanuck on the set of JAWSFinally,RIP to legendary film producerRichard D.Zanuckwho died on Friday at the age of 77.I can't even remotely say that I love his filmography given thatDriving Miss Daisy(1989) andAlice in Wonderland(2010) -- two pictures which caused me great personal pain via their Oscar and Box Office might -- are chief among his hits.But I have to tip my hat for his efforts to champion a then unknown Steven Spielberg in the 1970s.Perhaps it was Spielberg's destiny to become the world's most popular filmmaker and no one person could have changed that.But if anyone could be thanked for getting Spielberg started beyond the man himself,it would be Zanuck.He basically launched the young filmmaker with the one two punch ofSugarland Express(1974) and mega-hitJaws(1975),Spielberg's first two theatrical releases.

Oscar Trivia Confusion:According to the New York Times,Zanuch also holds a peculiar Oscar record.He's reportedly the only son of a Best Picture Oscar winner (his father was legendary film producer Darryl F.Zanuck) to win Best Picture himself (forDriving Miss Daisy).But according to the IMDb,Zanuck Sr.never won the Best Picture Oscar though hisAMPAS track recordis nothing to dismiss given that he has three Irving Thalbergs.
