Dee--Love your commentary, he sounds luscious.  What questions were asked and what was his response?  I'd like to know what the gen'l conversation was about the play.  By the way what did you think of the play???

Hi girls!

 

I'm new in this list but I know this website very well. I think it's fantastic!

In these days I'm a little sad because I was going to the Q&A but my flight was cancelled  .

I've seen Dee's photos BTW...lucky girl.

 

Ciao

Thanks Sue - I think it's the same news. Not sure why the link doesn't work. It's at http://www.whatsonstage.com under "news". Glad I'm not the only one who could n't quite figure it out. A play about a play, indeed...?

I put the next installment of meeting Alan for those who are interested.

"Practicum Theatre invites you to join them for an evening of diverse short plays inspired by 'My name is Rachel Corrie' and the banning of it. "

 

Um, I made the mistake of thinking this was more than it was - plays about plays.  Seems odd.

Back to earth (and work) with a bump today. I am getting nowhere with that kino link. Are there other Perfume pix on it? I'd love to see more of the rest of the cast too.

Dee I have just read the next installment in your LJ from your close encounter of the Rickman kind and  that is soooo beautifully written I have tears in my eyes as I type.  I feel that I am there with all you guys.  What a wonderful experience for you all.  Looking forward to your next installments.

 

And I just loooove those Perfume pics.  The colours are beautiful and the rustic feel makes them look like a painting.  Wonderful!

QwertyFlo - there is no such thing as a picture of Alan Rickman that is too large! That's worse than saying "Sorry - I gave you too much chocolate." Those are the best yet from Perfume, I think.  Thank you.

 

Dee - Fabulous pictures! He looks so happy. Waiting with baited breath for your word pictures.

 

Sue - Happy Birthday!

 

 

Wow! What a couple of days! That trailer still makes me cry whenever I watch it.

Is charming really enough, dear Dee?? He was in a great mood and I told him so and he laughed. Alan is a very nice, outgoing man, who looks even better in reality. We were only a few fans outside and that perhaps made the whole difference. Susan, her lovely daughter, Dee and I were very lucky, that is for sure. And he is wonderful to young people  so attentive.

have to go ladies, invited to English dinner...

 Tell you more on Monday!!

*Still on a high after watching TEH trailer*

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUE!

 

Thank you Dee for the wonderful photos from last night.  Looking forward to reading all about it.  I really like your writing style so I know your analysis will be a good one.

 

Can I just remark, doesn't Alan look really happy of late, with last night and the earlier Haymarket event?  Now I'm not saying that he usually looks unhappy just that there seems to be that extra relaxed and content aura about him.  He looks wonderful.

 

We have an AR drought for so long, then it's like waiting for a bus; three come along together.  WONDERFUL!!!

 

As to the wondering when Snow Cake will be released I think I am right in saying that Marc Evans said seeing as it has a snow theme that he wanted it released later in the year - autumn I believe.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

A bit...? *snort* I'm absolutely dazed. I PROMISE I'll tell all about it - and I'm sure Hikity will too when she gets home. I just need a little time. But go look at the photos. Alan was absolutely charming.

Alma - Hmm, come to think about it...OH PLEASE! *slap*  That would be SO wrong! I`m sure it has NOTHING to do with it. (I can`t believe someone actually tought about that! ROFL) I loved the way the trailer was edited. I`m pretty sure it`s about giving himself another chance (although not in that *cough cough* particular field). I loved that sequence where he says "I`m starting to enjoy this..being with you, being with Linda...being with myself...again"  and then there`s that image with him in his car changing his glasses. (It reminded me of RedTango`s Agent Rickman gallery ) Oh, and I`m not even gonna mention the final pose! UPS! Seems like I`ve mentioned it already!

OH and whoever said that image of him right before he hugs Linda is totally thud worthy - my thoughts EXACTLY!

 

On a different nore,  who purchased the rights for the film again?

Oh wow, that came out all wrong. I meant that lots of guys have that problem, especially old guys. So I've heard. I don't have experience with old guys. Not that old guys are bad!

Ah, I need to go to bed. Or take a cold shower.

It was an odd quote to end the trailer with though, right? I'm gonna assume that its supposed to mean something else beyond the obvious.

Oh man, trailery goodness. So, little question. Do y'all think that when Trinity says "I think you're ready to try again" at the end of the trailer she's referring to something errr else or just your old male troubles? I mean, I guess Rickman is supposed to be an older character in the movie, hehe. Ahhh, what am I saying, it happens to lots of men, hurrr.

Michele- I *might.* I kinda want to see the one on Thursday since that's the one he'd probably show up at, if he showed up at all. But don't quote me on that Sunday would definitley be better for me, since I have class on Thursday. The only way I could go to the showing on Thursday would be if I went to class then took the bus for 5 hours, arriving, watching movie, maybe buying some shoes- hehe, then going back on the night bus then going to class. Erm, sorry for thinking out loud. Before I didn't think it was worth it but the new trailers + AR being in NYC....
Agggh, decisions decisions.

THANK YOU FOR THE TRAILER!!! I love that pic of AR's ear and Carrie Anne Moss's lips. Her lips are very recognizable. I am looking forward to some Snape x Trinity lovin'

Best Birthday Wishes, Sue!    Hope you have an enjoyable day!

 

Thanks so much for the link to that trailer!  After having a thoroughly crappy day, it was nice to come home to a surprise like this! 

 

Some of my favorite lines:  "Be careful, Mr. Shifty", "...actually, she's my wife" and "it's alright, I know all about autism, I've seen that film."    There's a few of us on the GB here who can related to that comment! 

 

Has anyone heard from Dee or Hikity?  I've been thinking about them all day!

I really hope the film gets a disribution date here soon. All these film festival showings are great but I hope it doesn't mean that no one will take it on, a la TSfJG!

Yulia,
I'm with Elaine. Quit smoking and listen to someone who enjoys cancer-sticks!
Also I'm a social smoker I know it's better to not smoke and pester others with the stink.

Btw. Alan Rickman himself said he DID smoke in the past ( I believe more puffing away the fags!)

His partner Rima is a smoker although you'll hardly see her in public with a cigarette in her hands.

Yulia, get back to senses, will you? 15 is quite young to smoke and risk your health.

Yulia, aren't you a little young to smoke? You do realise the damage smoking does, not only to your body, but to eveyone around you that has to breathe in the residue of your cigarettes? I would urge you to give up or you aren't going to see old bones.

 

Juliet, wonderful news, keep on rocking!

 

Claudia, I was most upset that AR could not be at the Curzon in person, as I'm only 30 minutes up the road from there. We used to have a caravan about 5 minutes away, too!

I like those pics and you?

 Dee for checking in with us!  I'm with Ali-Pat on the "slightly contained impatience" for your report!  I can not believe you have a sunburn!   

 

Yulia, as far as anyone knows, AR does not smoke.  The most credible report I've read came from a friend who saw a performance of Private Lives in New York.  After the performance, she went for dinner at a restaurant and was seated at a table next to party of some of the cast and crew from PL.  Unfortunately, AR was not among the party but Adam Godley was.  A conversation was struck up between my friend and AG and the topic of smoking came up because there was quite a bit of smoking in the play.  Adam Godley told her that the cigarettes in the play were herbal and that none of the cast smoked. 

 

Happy happy Friday everyone!!!!

 

Can't wait to hear from you lucky ones that will be at the play tonight!

On a side note, I finally got to the Snape chapter of Mapping the World of Harry Potter and I enjoyed it completely and noisily.  Really, the other folks at the bus stop must have wondered what was so danged funny.  It looks like the rest of the book will be just as entertaining.

Keith, thank you for the report!! I have some questions arising in case you still read the GB - there's one photo where he looks quite upset, standing next to the car - is it just a bad shot as in cathcing his expressions or did something happen? Secondly, do you mind to name the exact heading of the event (or anyone else here if it is known...) as Hay Fever opened before that date and I'm confused why that evening was pointed out...THNX a lot!!

Just wanted to pop in for a moment. London is FABULOUS! But I'm probably the only person on the planet who could come to Great Britain and get a sunburn!

I spoke on the phone with Hikity last night and she sounds delightful. We're getting together at 6pm - pick up tickets at 7:15 - play at 8:00 - Q&A at 9:30. Must admit that I'm disappointed about the tone they are setting for the Q&A: no questions from the floor, no photos, no autographs... But, we'll just have to see how it plays out. Fingers crossed!

I also sent up a emteee beagle howl when I saw Keiths photos! I was going to see Hay Fever that same night, but was too tired! SOB!! I did see Kathleen Turner in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe - it was wonderful!

Sorry to be OT. If anyone wants to read about my awfully big adventure here in London, you are quite welcome to my daily updates. But PLEASE: most of you know my writing style. If you don't like the way I talk, get confused by my flippancy or odd cbservations, please don't leave impolite comments.

Thanks Reedpipe for the news, it's interesting the way he said "Severus" instead of just "Snape"... It is a weak hint to guess anything about our favorite Potions-Master-on-the-run but at least is a good thing they're in first-name terms.

I spent some time looking at those hats on Ebay, Sue, thanks for the link!
Bet AR would send a cap of some sort, maybe a sport cap... What kind of raquet was he seen bouncing? Have to check the archives!

UK newspaper The Express has a new quote today from actor Alan Rickman regarding his role as the nefarious Potionsmaster Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films. When asked if he thought that his character "will turn out ultimately to be a good or bad guy," Mr. Rickman responded:

"I never talk about Severus or Harry Potter, " says Rickman, "but I will only say the filming is going very well indeed."

News over here!!!RICKMAN FIGHTS FOR CONTROVERSIAL PLAY Movie & Entertainment News WENN.com All Rights Reserved 2006-04-27 15:19:28 - Print article Refer to a friend LATEST: British acting veteran ALAN RICKMAN is making a last attempt to get his controversial play MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE on a New York City stage, after a theatre pulled out because of the current "political climate". The DIE HARD actor directs the show, which charts the true story of an American peace activist who was killed by an Israeli army bulldozer, and was appalled when the New York Theatre Workshop cancelled the production last month (MAR06), slamming the move as "censorship". While the production is moving to London's West End, Rickman remains determined to see the politically-sensitive production on the New York stage, and will next week (begs01MAY06) fly to the US to fight it out with theatre bosses. He says, "I'm going to New York next week to talk about the play being put on again. It's a very complex issue and I don't want to go on about it too much. "I'm hoping we can sort something out and put the play on, whether it be at the New York Theatre Workshop or another theatre. "The play has to be shown in America and that's why I'm flying out to New York to change things." (JB/WNBIN/SH) Entertainment News by: http://www.pr-inside.com Contact information: e-mail

Thanks for your post, Keith. I completely understand his atitude, but he does shoot himself in the foot, sometimes. Knowing there would be photographers hanging around, you would have thought he would at least straighten his tie, otherwise the accusations are sure to fly!

 

And I know he tries to limit the profit these ebayers get from autographs etc (but then if buyers are daft enough to pay the price.....) but the "no autographs, no pictures" thing seems to be the norm these days for him, and eventually, he is going to lose a lot of loyal fans if he doesn't at least make some explanation why - even through Melanie Parker if needs be. He should not equate the thoughtless stalkers and ruthless ebayers with fans who just want a snap for their photo album, or a scribbled autograph to be their prized and prescious memory of an event that was special to them. After all, he is a well respected actor, and with that comes fans and admirers. If he did not want all that, then he should have stayed a graphic artist.

 

I love him really! His recent attitude is just getting to me, a bit.

Hello Ladies!

Marlina, 60 is not the age! It's not so much! Some men look brilliant even at 80 so we have got at least 20 years....!!!

Keith, I am glad for you very much! When I grow up I will also go to see Alan! But why doesn't Alan sign HP stuff? Just only to prevent selling the autographs...?Sad occasion.

Sue, I have also noticed that people brought pics from "RH..." and "LA" and others. It is very good that people appreciate his new and old works.

Beth the photos are mainly not new but very funny and I like it very much indeed!

Sue!  Thanks for the Getty pics! 

 

I know there are others that will disagree with me but I really like the look he had Tuesday night. That's not to say that I don't like it when he's "dressed to kill" because I swoon and drool like the rest of you. But the look he had Tuesday night was fabulous in a relaxed sort of way. 

 

Alma, I'm sorry I don't have any other information for you about Tribeca rumor.  Maybe something will pop up and I'll make sure you get the message. 

 

Speaking of Tribeca!!!  It starts today so everyone needs to keep their eyes peeled on channels like E!, IFC, and Sundance!

Thanks for the information from the Hayfever event, Keith.  And you included info on the fabulous David Tennant too! 

 

Its great to know that he was just being particular with his signing instead of refusing completely.  The Man certainly is a pro at spotting the imposter fans.  Maybe AR can give David Tennant some advice.   

 

Also, I never meant to imply that AR was "sloshed" beyond the point of having his wits or walking drunkenly.  I will be the first one to say there is not a thing wrong with a drink or two....or three *grin*.  I only commented on it because it was really very nice to see him looking so relaxed and having a very good time after the last several sightings where he looked tense and stern.

 

Thanks again Keith for your commentary.  It was great to read to start off my day.

Oh, those pictures are fantastic!  Thank you so much, Keith for sharing them and giving us a first hand report.  I suppose you would need a drink or two just to be able to handle those "professional" autograph seekers.

Just to clarify about last night with Alan and the 'no autographs'.

 

Alan was OK about signing autographs, but as you know He does NOT Sign Harry Potter pics/items. There were about 8 regular autograph collectors/dealers at the stage door and as ever they had their supply of various pictures for the actors to sign. They did very well because David Tennant must have signed about 30 items - and there were only 8 guys there....so they would have been counting their money.

 

With Alan he was trying to make sure he did not give these guys a Christmas present by signing too much but he did point blank refuse to sign HP pics. Even one guy said "No, honest I'm not going to sell it. You speak to me in 30 years I'll still have it. Go on, pleeeeeeeeeease". Alan's response was polite and to the point "you may still have it in 30 years but it wont have my autograph, sorry - I do not sign Harry Potter stuff"

 

And lets face it, the man is not an idiot, he knew these guys were not fans, but dealers, professional autograph getters. Anyway this one guy chased him right down the bottom of the road pleading. Alan walked along with Belinda Lang and one of her friends and eventually the guy gave up at the end of the road to come back and pester someone else!

 

And Alan, I would guess had had a drink or two. He looked like he'd enjoyed his night at the theatre, but he was far from drunk. He had his wits about him, did not walk in a drunken way, nor was his speech slurred. He was just....'chilled'. And quite amazingly did not get annoyed with the autograph guys, just quite cheerfully set his own limits "I'll sign this, but not that".

 

One of these annoying guys wanted David Tennany to sign a Doctor Who photo and write "David Tennant Doctor Who" for some reason, David asked why - cant you write it on yourself, you've got my signature, what more???"

 

Anyway, photos wise, the pics you've tracked down are probably all you'll find. The guy who shot for Capital (Can Nguyen) also supplies LFI, the Rex pics were by James Curley (and his mate Steve) and a new guy Nat Travers was there for Getty.....and of course yours truly who popped along after the Mission Impossible 3 Premiere.

Claudia, things are a bit different than expected. We cannot ask questions from the floor but have to mail or hand them in beforehand. I did my very best today (instead of packing and now I am a bit nervous, ladies, as my flight goes quite soon) to produce decent and intelligent questions (taking into consideration those of Sue, Laura, Nahima and Meeressternchen, too) . I would love to add yours, AdaVeen, although I already mailed to Whatsonstage. On verra! (quote Louis XIV; we will see)

Just spootted some new pictures on ebay from 'our'Keith under 'Screentwo'..I'm not reproducing them here so hop over and take a look. They were taken last night at the Gala Charity Performance of Hay Fever at the Haymarket. Alan looks like he's had a good night...Tie skew Whiff (AGAIN)! Actually,I think it's rather fetching...uhm,...well, Alan has that certain style.

Alanfan,

I have emailed The Crucible, Sheffield and they have not stated dates as yet...I'm awaiting a reply,...as soon as I hear, you'll be the first to know.

Awwwww     I'm sorry to worry you Elaine and Ali-Pat.  Its been one thing after another the last couple of months.  I've been popping in as much as I can and I'm really behind on email but I keep plugging away at getting caught up. 

 

Elaine!  Thanks for the Whatsonstage update!  I'm very surprised that there are still tickets left.  Maybe the disclaimer that there is no 100% guarantee that specific individuals will be there might have scared some people off.  That's a shame too, isn't it?  I think if you want to see the play, it doesn't matter who is there for the Q&A.  Surely, someone(s) from the inner circle would be there.....Katherine Viner and/or Megan Dodds and I am positive they have just as much fascinating contributions as AR.

 

I love sue's question!  Hikity, I hope you will be able to ask it.  Also, Laura's question would be wonderful to ask and the answer could benefit many of us all around the world.  Meeressternchen's question is very professional too and I think very appropriate. 

 

I'm wishing Dee and Hikity a lot of fun!  Hikity, I'm with Nahima....give Dee a big hug   from all of us and tell her to behave!!!       

 

I second everyone that thinks Ali-Pat is fantastic.  Her site is full of wonderful information and the humor she instills makes reading it even more fun to read.  And my gawwwd, that woman has a memory to die for! 

 

Here's a newish (?) pic of AR thanks to Eliza over at TARF for posting it.  I'm torn about it being new though.  It looks like this might have been taken while he was letting his hair grow out before shooting Snow Cake but then again...it could be the light in the store that's causing his hair to be so light.

Anyway...enjoy!   

 

 

Maybe some good news on the Tribeca front.  There are rumors flying around that he might make an appearance at Tribeca this year for Snow Cake.  There is nothing firm to base this on so if anyone was planning on going to the festival, keep your eyes peeled and come back and tell us all about it, please!!!     So emteee, your basing the little blurb the other day about AR heading to Manhatten to scout theatres might not be to far off base!

 

Thanks to CatsPlay for the info on what AR did for the Beckett celebration.  It looks like most of the artists that appeared did two pieces.  Can you imagine having precious little time to rehearse and then getting up in front of an audience to perform????  I'm getting shivers thinking about it! 

 

Pauline, thanks so much for the link to the MNiRC piece.  I've downloaded it and will listen to it in just a bit. 

 

I followed the Harry/Karen conversation as much as I could.  I loved reading everyone's opinion.  I've always been of the thought that Harry did do the deed with Mia because of the crumpled bed.

Thanks for the Spanish help, Nahima, Carolina, & Yulia. It has been 43 years  since I took Spanish in school so I wasn't 100 percent sure. I forgot to say "female", though - not used to thinking in terms of male/female words anymore!

 

Well, Nahima won't be reading this soon, 'cause she's going to be watching someone Search for someone!  After she's through doing that she'll be  no doubt.

 

That would be fantastic, Laura, if they would film MNiRC to release after it's through in the theaters! If only LLD and PL had been done! Maybe a polite letter-writing campaign or something? To let them know there's interest.

Comments:
Yes, "Ma" in spanish means "mine" but it is used only when referring to a female or something related with the feminine genre.
For example, if you want to say "Alan is mine" you can't use "mia".
It has to be "Alan es miO"... see? with an "o" instead of "a" at the end.

I use "Alan" just for pedagogical purposes, a male's name was needed and I just remember that one... pure coincidence.

Hikity, mein Schatz, if you have the courage: "Does the actress warm up properly every time before the performance and for how long, especially for her song?" *a very stupid Q on the first glance, however, many glances later perhaps not so - for I went several times and sometimes it was superb and sometimes you'd think oh my god - where did the warm-up go? I admit, a theatre-detailed Q*

Hi people!

I'm just dropping by (or dropping in?) to scream something:
Jan, I got it!

Thanks a lot!!!

Sue, that's a very good question!
Could he take it as a challenge? (Btw, hope next Friday he would be in the best of moods.)

Laura, maybe AR would prefer to make a film about it.
Just as he did with "The Winter Guest".

Lovely discussion regarding "Love Actually"!
Pity I'm on my way to enjoy some gifts...
But can't go without add a tiny bit and that is that I think Harry and ForgotEmma's character name did have fallen into a routine in their marriage, jobs and kids before their own love relationship, and that did some harm too.

Hikity, have a nice trip and give Dee a huge hug from us!
(Tell her to do the same with you!)
I've not manage to "construct" an intelligent question after all this time... *shame on me* ...but I believe it will be interesting to inquiry about AR's POV of Rachel Corrie as a person, aside the political factor. AR has always said that his works's principal target is to make people think, it would be interesting to know more about his own thoughts when first "met" or heard about Rachel.

Could it be inappropiate to ask about his next works? Yes, I think so.
Forget this, I didn't say it.

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone!
(This can't be taken in the british sense since I mentioned the specific day... or am I wrong?)

Brittany: They say that we are attracted to people not so much for who they are as how we feel about ourselves when we're with them. If you want someone to like you, make them feel good about themselves. Harry and Karen have BOTH fallen into a routine, as most of us do. If Karen was still making Harry feel sexy, handsome, and desireable there's NOTHING Mia could have done to lure him away. Likewise, Harry should have been making Karen feel sexy, beautiful, and desireable. We tend to become complacent in our relationships - and that is a HUGE mistake!

 

But watched the whole movie again last night and I just love the way so many different relationships are depicted (including the reversed-role thing, Hikity, definitely) and how they intertwine through friendships, family connections, etc.

 

And seeing AR's choices of roles - I think he wants to depict a wide spectrum of human experience. Harry isn't really bad - he's just vulnerable and he slips.

Oh, a Happy Liberation Anniversary from me too, then, for all our Italian friends!

LurkingFairy, yes, indeed, Tony Kushner is a controversial writer but I admire his work very much. Anges in America was splendid! I`m curious about the play, I`ve only seen the movie and I`m having difficulties imagining how they could have played it on a stage. i mean, so many characters with so many different locations, not to mention the special effects.   

Yes, Hikity, I agree completely. Enough to say that since I`ve been studying history, ALL my foundations have been shattered. Actually the first lesson is  - forget what you`ve learned so far, forget everything you may have heard; this is completely different and you`ll have to start all over again. And then yo learn that a historical figure that you have admired was actually a loathsome person and viceversa. And yes, usually we`re only taught the convenient part of history. It`s called mass manipulation and it has been going on since the begining of mankind and it will STILL happen in the future, however that may be.

 

Sorry for the OT everyone.

Ali-Pat, you are fantastic - thanks so much for your advice and the links, wow! I hope I can find some of them in our university library.

 

Michelle, also a big thankyou to you - a very nice link you posted and I am going to listen to the speaker when I return from England!

 

Ardent Jan, that's a good point! I've never thought about the long illness of his late wife. O.K. then, I accept his falling in love with a Claudia-Schiffer-kind-of-woman (btw she is really pretty and I once read - I think it was Lagerfeld himself who said it - that her complextion, her skin, her figure etc etc are all truly perfect without any make-up - a very rar thing).

Concerning Heike Makatsch - she has blond hair (that was a wig in LA), she is too thin for my taste (no bottom at all, therefore I cannot understand Harry anyway) sorry I am not fond of her but I stop here as it is ad nauseum to take your wording...hihihi. For me she is supposed to play (a very modern) femme fatale, but not very convincingly. Of course she doesn't care about Karen, which becomes obvious in the deleted scene - there is a GOAL to reach - as it is so often with men, isn't it?? They chase a woman like a hunter and when they finally "catch" her and had their "cake" they drop her in search for the next one. So, this might be another side/view/hint/purpose of this film sequence: reverse gender issues 

 

Chris, I couldn't have put it in better words - I refer to LA and MNiRC, Tks plus your interesting hints on historical facts. Isn't that anyway a problem as we haven't lived in a paticular time in the past and those who wrote about it at that particular time are not objective -they pass over their views. Read an article in today's  newspapers on a topic you are familiar with (or perhaps involved in due to your job or study) and you might shake your head or even get furious because of the false facts or conclusions the author stated...and then imagine that this will be part of history in 100 years

Hey again, ARdent Jan.  I guess your right about that.  If you really like somebody, then of course you would care about how the situation might affect them.  So I too think she was just being selfish.  Do you think Harry liked Mia more, or just cared for his wife less at the time?  I think he liked Mia more.  Why does Alan ALWAYS have to play the bad character? haha.  Oh right, because hes HOT!  Same reason he plays the good characters. haha.  And of course because of his brilliant acting.

Hi all

Back from my travels I noticed on the Guardian web-site a re-working by Billy Bragg of Bob Dylan's "The lonesome death of Hattie Carroll" with reference to Rachel Corrie. You can read the text or download the MP3 file here

Brittany: It depends to on how you define "likes him." Attracted to him - of course! I'm sure she won't "sleep around" with literally anybody. But I really can't understand how a person can say "I like him" and yet not care how he might be hurt by one's actions.

 

If Mia had seen the pain in his face when Karen confronted him - would she have cared? Would she have felt sorry that she caused the man she supposedly likes to hurt so deeply? Or would she just see it as an opportunity to step in and "comfort" him. That's selfish opportunism. That's a little like telling someone, "I really like you," then hitting them over the head with a frying pan, and saying, "Oh, here - let me kiss it and make it better!" I'd say: "Please don't like me!"

Found this in Google groups this evening:

 

Samuel Beckett Gala Evening 2nd April 2006. The Concert Hall, Reading.

Unquestionably Beckett was a prolific master of many genres, from novels to dramas to unique one-act plays. Oscar winning director, Anthony Minghella, celebrated the diversity of these works by bringing together a remarkable cast of actors to perform powerful passages from Beckett's work. Furthermore the proceeds from the performance, the drinks reception and the auction all went to Macmillan Cancer Relief.

Some of the performers are already associated with Beckett notably Billie Whitelaw, Barry McGovern and Felicity Kendal whilst Jude Law, Rosamund Pike and possibly Alan Rickman are relative novices. It was Minghella stated, an evening of  'busking Beckett', adding that the actors had only that day rehearsed for the performance at seven. The entertainment opened with the relatively  'lighter' and best known of the dramatist's works, Waiting For Godot, once criminally and inaccurately described as "a play in which nothing happens.

 

Twice."

Jude Law as Vladimir was the perfect foil to Lee Evans' Estragon, a character profiting from Lee's faultless comic timing and physical presence. Although Lee has some familiarity with Beckett this was a new experience for Law who later impressed with the final actor's piece of the evening, What is the Word.

In contrast 'Beckett's muse' and long-time associate Billie
Whitelaw took the proceedings into the darker areas of the playwrights consciousness with her spectral passionate Eh Joe and the haunting lyricism of Rockaby.

Barry McGovern is another Beckett stalwart with a history of major roles and his contributions, warmed by his resonant presentation, were an incredible aural pleasure. Both the poems and the extract from the novel Unnameable were a wealth of metaphor and vibrant language, a clear debt to James Joyce.

This wonderful use of language reached its peak when Rosamund Pike, along with Felicity Kendal and Alan Rickman delivered the difficult, yet lyrical, reading from Play, in which all three characters speak in what Beckett termed a "chorus".  The impressive Rosamund Pike returned later for Not I, a piece still intrinsically associated with Whitelaw.

However equally impressive was Rickman's reading of Krapps Last Tape where a man listens to a tape recording of his memories as he reflects on 'that stupid bastard...thirty years ago" The difficulty of acting the scene without props was dramatically compensated for by Minghella reading aloud the stage directions.

Balanced against such longing and despair Lee's second piece showed Beckett's love of the clown and as before he showed a remarkable aptitude for the material that crackled with verbal dexterity as he railed against  'the wax...the cracks...the prayers'.

More wordplay from Kendal  as Winnie in  Happy Days who 'between the bell for waking and the bell for sleep' kills time with words. Both the language and her performance captured exactly the insecurity of Winnie's situation as she careers between optimism, despair and denial.

Finally the performance ended with, as Minghella said,  'his
master's voice' - Beckett himself. A rare opportunity to listen to
a ghostly disembodied four minute recording of Beckett reading -
stunning closing moments to a remarkable and rare evening.

Wow, thanks for all that stuff, ARdent Jan!  I really am glad to read that scene to think about it more.  VERY nice comments in parenthesis. HAHA.  Now what Im wondering is if Mia wants to have an affair with Harry because she is the type of person who would sleep around, with anyone, or if she really does like him.  Maybe it is a combination.  Also thanks for the information on Teh Man.  Very Funny.  Haha.  He really is TEH MAN! hahahah.  That cracks me up.  One of my favorites in this case is TEH EYES!  I love his stare so much.  He is flawless.  OOOOOO!

Another neat cut scene: Emma looks at herself in the mirror and says:

"Since when did my bottom stop being my bottom and turn into Britain's second largest sea port?"

Harry: "Don't be rude. I've invested a lot of time and emotion in that bottom." Too bad you didn't remember that, Harry.

Camerata: It's the scene where Mia checks out her friend Mark's (the guy in love with Kiera Knightly's character) art gallery for the party.

Mia: "I'm thinking of having an affair with my boss. What do you think?"

Mark: "Is he married?"

Mia: "Yes."

Mark: "Bad idea, then. The marriage vow is very sacred. (which he clearly believes since he left his friend's wife alone)

Mia: "Or I could have an affair with you, Mark." (an affair is going to happen with someone-if you don't care who, pick a single man)

Mark laughs.

Mia: "Why not?"

Mark: "Let's just not go there." pause "Do you look as gorgeous as this at work?"

Mia: "Yes." (clearly she thinks so)

Mark: "Then he's doomed. Isn't he?"

Mia: "Yes." (and who gives a flying s**t about how it hurts Harry, just let me at him - true love, that)

Interestingly, Richard Curtis says that originally Mia was going to be the woman who had broken Colin Firth's heart and then they changed that.

 

Brittany: I understand it started out as a mistake somewhere (?) on the net and then came to mean "the diffinitive whatever". Teh Nose is the difinitive nose. The nose by which we measure all noses! Teh Man, Teh Lips, and so on ad infinitum (or ad nauseum, depending on how you look at it, I suppose).

About Harry & Mia, a friend of mine has also noticed that her sheets were upside down and that it meant that they did it but I'm not sure of that. But to play the devil's advocate, if I was Mia, I'd probably did the same because Harry is HOT ! LOL (and so does Carl, the enigmatic chief designer lol)

Well, concerning Bad Harry, now I am convinced that he did the deed, so to speak. haha.  I like our discussion a lot.  People were mentioning the end, about when he comes back from the plane.  Here is another idea: Maybe Harry actually offered or insisted on leaving for a break, because he felt guilty for what he had done.  Also, has anyone watched the deleted scenes for LA?   Because there is a scene in there where Mia is talking to one of the guys (I think the one who was in love with Kiera Knightly's character.)  They talk and she says something like "Im thinking of dating my boss." Or asking him out or sleeping with him or something.  I was just wondering if anybody remembers what was exactly said so could play into her relationship with Harry.  Also, I know this may be a stupid question, but why do we say "Teh Man" instead of "The Man."?????  I have been confused about this for sometime, and really have no idea why I dont know.

P.S- I will be hanging out in the chat room if anybody wants to join me.

Oh one thing I forgot! Abiut Michael Collins. I don`t know, there was something in DeValera which made me believe him. Then there was that bit at the end where (it was written on the screen) he said that no doubt, the world will held him responsable. But I actually think the way they edited the movie was for the best. It has an ambiguity about it which in my opinion suites every historical interpretation. One thing I`ve learned, studying history is that nothing is what it seems to be and that nothing ever was. You can believe but you can`t tell for certain, not even after you`ve read thousands or articles. Human actions can be determined about countless factors. Also, there are so many factual errors floating around, so I think the best way to tell a story is to leave room for interpretation.

Jamie is the sweetest boy/ghost I have ever known! Every time watching TMD, I smile a lot as well as shed lots of tears. Speak of sweet boy, Ed in the January Man is the definition of this term!

 

Oh, I think I should speak a bit more about SC: Alex was tortured by 2 car accidents in which 3 people died including his son. Its very hard to get through, he felt so guilty, even wept. And these painful experiences made him a very introvert person. (clear my throat)Concerning the mentioned !@#$%^scenes, its said that the scenes are not particularly !@#$%^, just kisses, holding in arms, sweet talks(hope you can understand), and making love twice What is also worth mentioning is that Alan would sing 2 very short songs in the movie. Alex made several good friends there including Linda who was still autistic, but slightly. When he finally left the small town, the old nightmare was overcome.

Believe me, I have tried my best. Today, she is still *_*

Just to throw my two cents in the LA debate, I was never simpathetic towards AR`s character. It takes two to tango; yes, he did it, yes, he is guilty and responsable for his own dark deeds. Yulia, I don`t think you`d feel the same way if your (future) husband would do that to you. On a different note, if you think about Mia, her character represents TEMPTATION. The forbidden fruit that lures everyone at a certain time in their life. Giving in is human. Restraining yourself is admirable. I find it just another REAL life situation, much more real than any other story included in the film. Actually, although yes, I dislike Mia`s character, I can`t judge her either. Let`s be honest here, almost everyone finds herself/himself attracted to someone already commited at a certain point in life.(and we ARE talking about someone played by AR, in the end ) Of course, i`m only talking about thoughts. She, on the other hand, took it to another level. Which WAS wrong, indeed. But I wouldn`t blame her alone, nor would I call her an ugly frog either. I wouldn`t call her a beauty but I don`t think they chose her for nothing. She does have a certain appeal, IMHO.

Hmm, yes, I think ET`s acting was superb, then again, I would have expected nothing less from her. For anyone who`s a fan, I HIGHLY recommend Imagining Argentina. It`s one of the most moving films I have ever sen but I must warn you, it`s a bit tough to chew due to certain violence scenes.

 

And about the MNIRC debate, I haven`t seen it either but just one thing I`d like to say: based on what i`ve read so far, I can`t imagine a rational person giving a political interpretation to the play. Let alone criticize the producers or director because of it. Mind you, I haven`t said politics are not involved. But politics are not the substance of this play. From what i`ve read, it`s another person`s perception of a certain political context. IF AR or KV would have inflicted their OWN beliefs in Rachel Corrie`s monologues, or would have altered the text in order to project their OWN opinions, then yes, it would have been a tricky subject. But producing, directing or writing a play about someone does not necessary imply aproval of their deeds. Take Munich, for example. A brilliant film. It raises many questions. BUT! See it as ART and not necessarily as someone`s opinions or frustration. There is no ultimate truth. There is only human perception.

For as long as I can remember, the Easter Rising has always been commemorated on Easter Sunday.   I don't live in Dublin myself - but I live in a Nationalist/Republican area of Belfast and I know that every Easter we wear the Easter Lily to remember the 1916 Rising.

 

According to this BBC site, the ACTUAL Easter Rising took place on April 23rd, but I think because it's widely known as the *Easter* Rising, it's tradition to celebrate it on Easter, regardless of the date - but this is just an opinion as to why things are so.

Michele et al: I read somewhere (or maybe saw an interview) that Alan was upset by the fact that they had removed a scene from Michael Collins which made it clear that DeValera had nothing to do with the assasination. Watching the movie, I had thought that he did. It's very misleading the way it is.

Hikity,  I have compiled a list of Easter Uprising books here.  And it was I who mistakenly said 100th instead of 90th--but I corrected myself in a later post. 

 

I agree with what Michele says about not believing everything Hollywood says, but I must caution you not to believe everything Wikipedia says, either.  It is a nice place to start, but you need to back up what it says with other sources. 

 

As for the Easter Uprising always being commemorated on Easter (at whatever point it falls on the calendar) I had not heard that.  A radio news story I heard last week seemed to indicate that events were being planned for the date of April 24.  Maybe it is one of those eternal conundrums like "did the 21st Century start in 2000 or 2001?"

 

And on to Private Lives--darkzorro93, I remember there only being two songs that were used in the Rickman/Duncan production of PL, but I could have misremembered that.  I think there might have been some random noodling on the piano at some point also.  I will look into it further and get back to you.

LA: I'm very glad, too, that AR insisted on the confrontation scene. I think it's very important for their emotional development. They both did it so well (what else is new?). Harry's face shows me that he really understands what he's done for the first time. Until then, I think he just thoughtlessly believed he could have it all and nobody would ever have to know. So many times I've heard someone say, "What she/he doesn't know won't hurt her/him." And then it does.

During the confrontation, Harry doesn't say anything and, really, Karen doesn't give him a chance. I'm not sure she really wants to hear it at that point.

I think Mia looks very much the young man-hunter, out to make a conquest at any cost (to anyone else). And she looks so self-satisfied with her spoils-of-war necklace. I think the actress played it very well. And, in her defense, we're not supposed to like her and they've done everything they can (hair, makeup, clothes) to see that we don't.

I agree, Vicki, about the airport scene, but I tend to think it's a combination business trip/separation. Maybe an extended business trip. Karen's "I'm fine" is something we all do, meaning "I'll survive" not "I'm back to normal." I think his face shows he understands that. But her "I'm glad you're home" speaks well for at least a chance that they'll manage to work it out and he will work like crazy to win back her trust. 1st on the agenda: Mia's gone!!!

That clue of the two beds, Reedpipe, is a great one! Karen's perfect - nothing happening there - and Mia's all messed up in the early evening. Baaaaaaaaad Harry! Mess your wife's bed up!!!!

Yes, that's true, Hikity, about the woman LN truly falls for (a CS lookalike in the story-very clever) I forgot that was played by her, but you have to consider, I think, that his wife was sick, apparently for a long time. That can make a huge difference. I would compare his wife's long death with Jamie's sudden death in TMD, where Nina couldn't move on because she hadn't had time before to digest it - it never became "real" to her.

Hikity - with reference to the Easter Rising (and other events outlined in the movie Michael Collins) I just wanted to add my two cents.   I can't remember who said it was the 100th anniversary today or yesterday but it's not quite true.    The Rising took place in 1916; making it 90 years.    

 

The Rising is always commemorated on Easter Sunday (because that's when it took place) but because Easter moves around each year, it's difficult to keep track.   I think the general consensus - at least in Ireland - is that it's remembered and celebrated on Easter Sunday and not the actual date itself (23/24 April).

 

If you're looking for some decent material on the ACTUAL (not the ones in the movie.   Never believe what Hollywood tells you!    Generally everything in the movie was accurate, but the it was very Pro-Michael Collins.   Rickman's character, amon de Valera was portrayed as sinister, cunning and even hinted he was involved in the assasination of Michael Collins.  There has never been any evidence to back this up.   Infact, de Valera went on to be the most influencial person in modern Irish history.  He wrote the constitution, was the Taiseach (Prime Minister) for over 30 years and even went on to become President) events, I'd suggest you take a look at some website.   Wikipedia, perhaps.   There are also lots of great books out there which have been written about the Easter Rising, I'd just suggest caution when choosing a title - with any country that's been through a civil war, there are always going to be divides in the opinion.   If possible, find a good text that'll provide you with BOTH sides of the argument, which in this case were Michael Collins's (Liam Neeson's character in the movie) pro-treaty party and amon de Valera's (Rickman) anti-treaty party.

Yes, Vicky, you are right. At least the story with the hot Latin lover was heartbreaking. Of course, the woman chose her responsibility for her brother. Very brave and unselfish of her. *sad*

And I agree with Hikity that Harry is not poor. He gave in to Mia's advances quite willingly and quickly. So, Mia is not worse than Harry here. Of course, her action of trying to seduce Harry is wrong (adultery and all) but Harry does the same.

Continuing with the Love Actually discussion, someone mentioned that Harry and Karen's relationship was the only unhappy (or inconclusive) ending but don't forget Laura Linney's character and the HOT, Latin love interest, Carl.  That was a very touching and heartbreaking story as well.

 

I also would include the guy (can't remember the actor's name) who was in love with Keira Knightly's character as a somewhat sad ending but one that was conclusive.  He had decided to finally reveal his true feelings to her, which he probably never would have done had she not seen his videotape of the wedding.  But he also decided to end it at the same time.  Sad for him, at least but he respected his friend enough to never act on his feelings and decided to move on from there.

Ali-Pat, do you have by any chance some interesting articles or book references on the Eater Uprising? one of my final exam subjects is: Irish Renaissance and it is always good to know more about the politics around the Irish Literary movement. I am going to show MC to our course in some weeks (my prof asked me to) and I thought of some introducing words....

 

LA: I think he comes home after a business trip. Concerning Heike Makasch I remember that ET once talked about her beauty, huhu, I can't find any beauty in her, sorry. Regarding Harry I suggest it was a one-night stand. Ardent Jan, I agree, but in this case LN actually falls in love some weeks after his wife's death (and the lady in question is CS although she adopts another name in the film)

DarkZorro93, the 23rd of April is St.George's day. St.George is the patron saint of England. The English have never made much of a deal about their national day compared with the Irish, Scots and Welsh. It also happens to be Shakespeare's Birthday.

Well I for one always thought Harry had done the dirty LOL Either way, I think the buying of the present was just as much of a betrayal to Karen. People do get over these things though.

Yes, darkzorro. Unfortunately, I only read your post after posting mine... I think your view on Harry's and Karen's future is realistic. And yeah, I love Emma's expression, too. She is brilliant in that movie. Similar her crying in the bedroom, it is so real - well, in fact those are real tears. She is extraordinary. And when she confronts Harry and then suddenly turns round to hug the kids. There is so much going on in her face. And last but not least, the look on her face when she sees the necklace and thinks it is meant for her

Sorry, guys - that was OT, wasn't it? Can't help myself, I love that movie too much. Please forgive...

Yes, sure, the tumbled bed is quite convincing... Horrible, horrible. Oh, bad, bad Harry...

I am not sure whether Harry really returns from some time of separation in the end. Why should he leave the country for that? Looks rather like a business trip to me. Especially since the confrontation scene was not planned. Therefore no moviegoer could have jumped to that conclusion.

We have to thank AR for that scene, he felt it was necessary for Harry and Karen's story and I totally agree. Additionally, it is one of the most moving scenes in LA for me.

*sigh* Yeah, I think you convinced me. Stupid, innocent me never thought of the bed as evidence. Sad, so sad

Will Harry and Karen's relationship heal????

Ali-Pat The info is very helpful. Your site is interesting! "I enjoy being a girl", ~HOHO~ But, have you noticed that what Elyot was singing before Amanda interrupted him is not from these 2 songs. I am unable to make up the whole part, just can grasp several words, like illusion is gone, a rainy day, such and such. An ad-lib??

 

In LA, Mia looks like a spider (black&red). Im glad to see Harry finally come home on the last scene in the airport though its quite abrupt. Emmas performance is fabulous! The expression of Karen when coming face to face with her husband again always lingers in my mind. Definitely, she still loves him badly, but has also been hurt terribly by him. She has not yet forgiven him, but would give him another chance (maybe). Therefore, when the movie ended, I just thought Ok, Harry, now there is still a long way for you to go~~ They should shot this story as an independent one! I love alan+emma on screen.

 

BTW, what is St Georges Day? Is it an English festival for women? If so, wish you all a very happy St Georges Day!!

Interesting discussion on Harry.  I've always been "on the fence" as to whether he actually did sleep with Mia or not.  But after reading the posts here, I'm afraid you've convinced me that he did (say it isn't so! ).  Bad, BAD Harry!

 

Regarding the final scene at the airport, I've always felt that Harry was returning from a trial separation.  It seems to go well with Karen's character.  She had the courage to confront him (I can't believe they originally were not going to include that) after the school performance so I'm assuming that she also had the courage to boot his butt out for a while until he decided what was really important to him.  Being that, upon being exposed, he admitted that he was a fool, I think she was confident that he already realized he had made a big mistake and would eventually return.  But she probably needed some separation time herself to try and come to terms with what had happened and maybe demonstrate to him all that he would be losing by throwing their relationship away on a cheap affair.

So there it is, a confession of the man himself. *bad Harry bad Harry*

The first time I saw LA, I was convinced that Harry and Mia never actually, ahem, got together.  On a second watch, though, one thing struck me: after the scene where Karen cries her heart out and smoothes over her pristine bed, Curtis immediately cuts to Mia's apartment, where her bed is all a-jumble, and she puts on the necklace.  (I know someone else, either here or at Suzanne's, noticed this too.)  That's what convinced me that Harry and Mia actually did do the deed.  Bad Harry.

On this whole Harry thing, I did find AR's comments on the subject interesting, in that page from the press booklet that I posted the other day.....

 

 

Karen and Harry both have very busy lives and that often leads to little chinks in the armor...and into one of those chinks steps a young woman called Mia who works in Harry's office.  It's just like a moment in time -- you turn your head one way and one thing happens, turn another way and something else happens -- but like perhaps a lot of men he had a weak moment, weak enough to give in."

 

I don't know if that's inconculsive evidence (I added the emphasis as the end), but he did say 'give in'.

When not adding his lugubrious presence and bassoon-like tones to the filming of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," Alan Rickman is moonlighting as a location scout. With the next gap in his schedule, he's Manhattan-bound to select one of the theaters jockeying for his Royal Court production of "My Name Is Rachel Corrie."
Not surprisingly, New York Theater Workshop, which had been due to house the play before controversially opting for a last-minute "postponement," is not in contention.

Subject to finalizing a deal, the Gotham run will commence in mid-October with Megan Dodds repeating her radiant, unsentimental perfperf as the 23-year-old American idealist who died in a nonviolent protest for peace in Gaza.

The current London run -- the play's first commercial outing after two seasons at the Court -- has just been extended for two weeks, until May 21, following strong reviews and business.

David Johnson, who with Virginia Buckley is producing the play at the 850-seat Playhouse Theater, told Variety it is selling out on weekends and routinely receives standing ovations, still a rare occurrence in Britain, especially in nonmusical theater. A U.K. tour will start in August at the Edinburgh Festival, with Dublin and Sheffield dates already confirmed.

Although the play is one-sided -- it's a monologue based on Corrie's impassioned diaries and emails -- its singular perspective on the Middle East has provoked no irrational protests. The only group leafleting on opening night politely encouraged cyclists to join the 2006 Peace Cycle through 12 countries to Jerusalem.

Teen connections

Rachel Corrie once presciently added up things she had -- "eight black ballpoint pens/sharp teeth/beady eyes/and hope." Equally enlivening expectation for the future brims forth in three startlingly well-acted new plays at the National Theater.

Comments:

Thank you for the interesting discussion on Bad Harry. Actually, I always believed Harry bought the necklace but decided not to go any further just in time (note that that was before I was an Alan fan). Still feeling guilty, he bought the CD for his wife instead of the usual scarf. Of course, the ridiculously expensive necklace as compared to the CD would still be an insult in a way.

Maybe I only trusted in Harry because I cannot understand how someone could fall for Heike Makatsch , especially when that someone has such a caring wife. Makatsch does not come across convincingly as a man-eating Vamp imho.

Anyway, your ramblings really made me doubt Harry... *boohooo* Of course, he might have "done it." And how horrible indeed - on the same day when he gave his wife the CD. That would be hypocritical and dirty and unforgivable. His smile under the Christmas Tree would be fake and so would the kiss and the dressing of the children to help his wife.

I always thought he wanted to make up for the dirty thoughts he had had, not for any actual betrayal.

Of course, there was always the nagging doubt and for sure, during the confrontation with his wife, he does not deny that it might have been more than a necklace... That would be peculiar if he was innocent. But maybe he realized that moment that it did not matter if he betrayed his wife with a necklace or with sex - he had already destroyed something precious forever.  

On the DVD they say that Alan insisted on the confrontation scene - it was not in the original script. And I am glad there was a confrontation between the couple, that Karen did not just carry on without giving Harry a piece of her mind.

But of course, nothing is revealed then. And that is very clever, for not knowing what happened puts us into the same position as the wife. We will forever doubt Harry and suffer with Karen.

Pity for Harry? Only if he did not betray his wife hours before he gave her the present. For that would have been too planned and mean and dirty.

Another question: Do you think Karen has forgiven him? And when she says she is fine (at the airport), is she? She seems to be anything but fine, rather carrying on for the kids' sake or something like that. Harry on the other hand seems to believe her and not to realize she is hurting. Could that mean he thinks she believes it was only a necklace? Raaaaaaaaah, I WANT to know  And why, Makatsch, why?

Anyway, Harry's and Karen's story is the only one in the film without a happy ending. In a way, that makes the whole movie more real at least. But why, oh why?

darkzorro93, the two songs used in the 2001/02 production of Private Lives were both Noel Coward songs:

 

Noel Coward tunes used in production:

Someday Ill Find You (1930, written for Private Lives)
If Love Were All (1929, written for operetta Bitter Sweet )

and you will find them and other information about music used in AR plays and films on my site.

 

...now if I could only track down the instrumental piece use before the play began.  It was some happy little clarinet tune that I never heard before and have not heard since. 

 

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Easter Uprising.  A good day to watch Michael Collins.

At his wife's funeral he says they had talked about details of her funeral and he says that:"Some of her requests, for instance, that I should bring Claudia Schiffer as my date to the funeral, I was confident she expected me to ignore."

 

In other words: He was "in love" with Claudia Schiffer like we're "in love" with Alan Rickman!   Not really . . . just pretend. Or, rather, in love with Teh Look, Teh Talent, etc. and not the person (who we don't even know).

OK, ok - I give in!!!!! Bad bad Harry!  From Karen's point of view it doesn't matter, anyway. Of course it means the dirty little bugger went there just before going home and giving Karen her present. That's worth a boot in that lovely butt! But at least he realizes what a fool he's been when Karen confronts him and realizes that he has permanently damaged something important to him just so Mia  could put another notch on her bedpost. There, I had to feel a bit sorry for him, too. 

 

That's definitely not H&K's bed Mia gets out of because they're switching the scene between the two on the same night (Mia's still in the camisole when Hugh Grant comes to her door).There's something else I was never sure about and never even sort of decided: When Harry comes home on the plane, is it from a business trip, has Karen booted him out temporarily (as she talked about cutting and running), or is it both????

Happy belated St. George's Day!  I hope everyone enjoyed theirselves. 

 

Thank you Elaine for the explanation of "time lapse" photography.  So there is a distinction between it and "panoramic time lapse".  I learn so much from our group.

 

LurkingFairy, I fixed your link.  There was one too many "http://"s in the link because when you use the link icon above, it already has the start of the url inserted.  To me this is stupid because most people including myself like to copy from the browser (which already includes the "http://) and paste in.  I've asked Website Toolbox to address this issue.  Maybe if I ask again, they will respond this time.  

 

dorthkam, thank you so much for sharing your MNiRC experience with us!   

 

MNiRC is obviously a project near and dear to AR so I just can not or will not ban any discussion here.  I do want to read reports from people that have and/or are seeing the play as well as any other project that AR's working on.  I believe that past MNiRC experiences have been related very well without getting to political and I believe we will continue to do so. 

 

My original request pertaining to MNiRC spawned from the fact that every extreme site from both sides of the conflict were publishing articles about the play.  The extremists sites were indeed hurtful to our dear friends here on both sides so I did ask that when posting from such sites to please only post a link and possibly paste in the AR bits.  I've been quite proud of how careful everyone has been since my request and I really don't think anyone has stepped over the line. 

 

What it boils down to is this.  Our group is made up of many very wonderful, rational, and sensitive people who would rather poke out their own eye than to hurt someone else. There are a lot of people here that really don't fully understand the conflict and I will be the first one to admit to that.  Sometimes, that lack of understanding causes me to not be able to distinguish what might be hurtful to one side or the other.  But I can tell you this....I hurt and pray for both sides and would never want to hurt one or the other.

That Voltaire quote is near enough to make its very important point. I really do not want to jump on Susan who obviously finds this subject very difficult to handle, but the rest of us have rights too. AR is the director and co-editor of this play so of course we are going to discuss it. Many of us have seen or read MNIRC and want to hear other people's views or experoences. If this is too painful for some people then don't read those posts. It really is that simple. I hope you can come to terms with this Susan because there should be a lot of reports over the next week.

Two sentences on MNiRC: Banning discussions about MNiRC (which of course involve or have to involve politics) would be the same as banning the play...and I refuse to keep my mouth shut.

 

I am reading the play at the moment for very good reasons as you all know and I can only say: it's highly political in its own sense , and why not, remember what Orwell once stated:There is no keeping out of politcs. All issues are political issues.

 

However, if you think that freedom of speech is not allowed here on the GB I won't comment on my experiences of the play and the Q &A afterwards, of course. I have thought we are  great people here who are open enough to discuss different views on issues in a decent and friendly way

 

Regarding LA, Ardent Jan, as lovely as you are thinking only the best of best of our Harry, they definitely have an affair - there are many obvious signs (as mentioned here and esp. the bed in the background. Give it a closer look). BTW, I couldn't comprehend the far too quick falling in love with "Claudia Schiffer" in LA after the death of his beloved wife

 

Ladies, cross the fingers that  Dee experiences a wonderful first time outside of Indiana, that we, teh Redhead and teh Blond, will have sunny weather   and above all that our Man is actually going to be there.

Susan, by making comments about MNiRC, then surely you are making the discussion a political one. I have attended both Q & A sessions so far and there have been representatives of both "sides" there, all agreeing that it is not a political play but it represents one girl's life. You can't really comment until you have seen it, can you?  What do you base your assumptions on?

 

Yuliana, can't really see the smile in that pic. Don't recall him smiling in GoF at all. Incidentally, that's my cap from the audience at the Empire awards. It goes with one showing their place in the audience. (You really need to start crediting where you get your pics from. Hope you do it on your web-site)

 

And the time lapse method I described is the normal bog-standard photographer's method. The guy is clever, then.

I loved your post, Jan!
Honestly, when I first saw the movie I took the infidelity for granted.
I know it is not showed, we don't see any bed scene between Harry and the woman, but there are some hints that put my dirty mind in action!

For example, during the phone call Harry did ask her what he was going to receive in return (or if he was going to receive something, sorry I can't remember the exact line). Anyway, that let us know he has left the confusion somewhat behind and is willing to make an exchange!
Also, there is another scene, very short, when we can see the secretary wearing the necklace in her bedroom...hmm. That's highly suspicious!
From my POV, I took that as a proof that the exchange has been made already.

I don't know Jan, for me he is guilty. Bad Harry, bad!
The worst part is that I wasn't neither the wife nor the secretary.
Not even the necklace! I won't mind to be in his pocket for awhile.

Susan, I understand your concern but I don't feel the same.
I do love to read MNiRC reports and think it is unlikely anything weird may happen here only because someone tell us about its experience with the play. It's just a matter of taking the details and avoid any kind of political issues. After all, no one can make you fight or have an argument if you don't want to.

Yes darkzorro93, I agree with that too! Reading other people's accounts is the next best thing to seeing the play by ourselves.
(Sorry, I can't help you with your question about PL.)

Dorothkam, thank you for the review. Despite the complexity of political conflicts I think its good for Alan and Viner to put Rachels voice onto the stage and made it be heard, maybe not just be heard. At least, it serves as a reminder to people like me who otherwise would never pay attention to the sorrow and suffering of the lives people lead in those areas. Less attention, more injustice and abuse. We should not be indifferent to that, shall we? Anyway, I agree with Jan that reading posts like yours is the next best thing to seeing the play with our own eyes.

 

Now, I shall ask for help. Help! Ive been listening to the songs AR sang in Private Lives for a while, but cannot tell what exactly he was singing at the beginning. I mean, can anyone tell me what he was singing before Amanda (Duncan) said a big romantic stuff??? Thank u, thank u, thank u!!!!!

The opinion from which I probably won't be swayed is regret at seeing friendly fan sites turn into political arguments, as two did last week alone, and on each discussion of the content of MNIRC was banned.

Those are interesting links, CatsPlay, on the panorama pictures. The videos are fascinating.

Thank you, too, dorothkam, for your post about MNiRC.  It's nice to read the account of a non-professional (critic). The play will come to the U.S. and I hope that it will play somewhere near me, but until then, I hope we'll be able to read the posts of others who see it in London - it's the next best thing to seeing it.

 

Nahima & Brittany: I disagree!!! Since the movie leaves the degree of his transgression to our imaginations - even Karen doesn't know - I choose to believe that all he did was think about it. When he leaves the office to go shopping with Karen and the secretary asks if he'll buy something for her, he is surprised and confused. Therefore, nothing has happened up to that point. In my world, Harry never really went further than that. But just that would be enough to put doubt in Karen's mind forever - I think that's the point of not telling us what happened. It really doesn't matter. So I guess it's still "Bad Harry" after all!  At my age, one relates to Karen far more than the secretary! I want to keep him to myself!!!

Susan, Claudia asked us not to post purely political articles with reference to MNiRC that were not so much about the actual play but more political opinions. I believe she did this at your behest.

Dorothkam  saw the play and posted her own thoughts and review on the play which I am sure most of us would like to hear. I understand from your posts that you hold strong political views that you may not (and why should you?) be swayed from. However, I know that you have not seen this play and I would think it would be foolhardy to judge any book, play without having some first hand knowlege of it. You state "the play is offensive to many people" however I have yet to read a report from somebody who has actually seen the play who has said that they found it offensive.

Dorothkam, I have to disagree. The play is offensive to many people, and it has caused considerable conflict and unpleasantness on a number of AR sites since it presents only one side of a deeply entrenched and complicated political situation.

The play has not been banned in the United States.

Claudia asked us not to post articles about MNIRC on the GB; I would guess she'd prefer we not discuss the play's content, either, since arguments about Middle Eastern politics tend to be both passionate and counter-productive.

Hi,
I went to London this week (probably My Last as I will have to leave the corporate world) and watched the MNiRC play on Wednesday.
So my thoughts & impressions below if anyone's interested.
The beginning was a bit awkward for me - Rachel is a child talking about
her parents & her school. I didn't catch on immediately. But it was getting better every moment. The lines are really witty & funny (even for me - not being a native speaker I did not catch all the jokes) as well as touching. There are fragments not only of her own writings but also of her parents emails - this btw shows how brilliant her parents were. When she gets to Palestine she merely writes about what she saw with her own eyes - she stayed with people who had no arms, were opposed to violence and terror and whose homes and water supplies were destroyed.
She talks about wells a couple of times as it seems she and her companions - "the internationals" - were trying to protect those wells by their sheer presence. She also puts it into a legal perspective - according to international law it's illegal to destroy civilian water supplies. The play is really touching - it is an eyewitness stand and Rickman & Vines did a wonderful thing to let her voice be heard. Even if she was indeed used and a victim of cynical politicians - she believed strongly she was protecting inncocent people from violence.
I do have my own views on this conflict and I don't see it as she did but then I was not there - I only see what the media shows me and this means palestininan crowds rejoicing on 9/11, world without women, cult of suicide bombers and that is sth I just cannot accept and understand. Besides if Palestinians are - as she mentioned - so opposed to terror who asked them to vote for Hamas ? But these are my opinions and I may be wrong. She had her own based on her dearly paid for experience and it's good the world could hear them.
The play in no way offensive to anybody nor is it naive or unrealistic. That the play was not allowed in US it's indeed stupid and cowardly - Alan was right. It's pathetic.

Hmmmmm...Oh, and just a question: I was watching Love Actually this weekend, and my friends and I were debating to what extent did Mr. Rickman's relationship with his seceratay go?  Did they just have a flirting thing, and he got her the necklace?  Or was it more, as one of my friends suspects?  Thanks.  Have a great day, all.

I beg to differ about the time lapse photography in this case.  It is 'panoramic' time lapse photography, meaning the camera 'pans' along (moves) and also captures images.

 

As per a press clipping from his site,

 

Now he has developed a new technique of taking time-lapse shots, sometimes around 360 degrees, which show all the choreography of the event.

 

Here is his complete library of panoramic work, and he also offers some quicktime VR movies, which show the panning movement.

Thanks for the interesting new pictures. Time Lapse photography involves a camera on a fixed point set up to open the shutter at timed intervals. That's how you get pics of a flower opening and such like.

 

And I must wish my fellow English citizens

Great information, Lisa, thanks! She has a very devilish look on her face (in a good way!) when she does that. And who could blame her for going after Alan if she weren't married to Richard???

 

I don't think that's Alan in the picture with the guy in the mustard suit because it looks like Alan's shirt in the other pictures is white and in that picture the guy's shirt has a pattern in it. I'm not positive, though, as I haven't studied the others yet.

Brittany, I've never been able to keep up with which film a particular Snape photo comes from but I do believe that Vicki is correct thinking that particular shot came from CoS.

 

pat, thanks for the heads up about Becket on Film in Australia.  Its really worth the watch espeically since the purchase of the box set DVD is so expensive. 

 

Thank you for the explanation of "time lapse" photography, CatsPlay.  It was very interesting.

 

Congrats to Vicki and Alfan for meeting.  Sounds like yall had a great time.  I hope yall toasted the group with a delicious beverage!       

 

Yulia, I believe the general consensus was that the lady next to AR at the Evening Standard awards was Megan Dodds.  It was never confirmed though.  Also, Rima Horton did attend that event with the dear one. 

 

Alanfan, I really don't think the man on the left in that picture is AR.  My opinion is that the man in the picture is to stocky and the jowl is to full to be AR.  But again, that's only my opinion.

Brittany - I'm pretty sure that Snape photo was taken during the filming of Chamber of Secrets.  But, if I'm wrong, someone here will correct me.  It is a good photo.  I wonder if they've filmed any Snape scenes for OotP yet. 

 

sue & AFNH - thanks for your info on the film Let Him Have It.   Now, why were we talking about this film in the first place???  Did the director have something to do with AR's next project?

 

I didn't get a chance to get on this board the other day but I did mention something on the Discussion Group board, so this will be a repeat for those who also read that board.  On Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting Alfan who is on vacation here from Canada.  We had a great time talking about AR all day.  We took the Warner Brothers tour, saw the Harry Potter exhibit and went to Whimsic Alley, a Harry Potter store in Santa Monica.  It was great fun to meet someone from the GB.  Even though I've lived here all my life, I probably would have never gone to those places on my own.  So, many thanks to Alfan and hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation.  BTW.....she says  to everyone!

As per some other photos in that group and on his site, that photographer specializes in 'time lapsed' panorama shots.  I believe that shot that you reference is probably some sort of time lapse photo, thus causing the transparency.

 

Although I am a semi-serious photographer, I'm not entirely up to speed on the process and equipment used to accomplish this.  But I believe it involves a camera that 'moves' over a period of time, perhaps in this case paired with flash to capture it. 

 

In fact, there is at least one of those wide shots in the AR group in which AR actually appears TWICE in the photo, which I believe is a two points in time of the photo taking process.

 

Then again I could just be blowing hot air, but I think I'm on the right track.

The thing about that picture (and all of the really wide ones, I think) is that it's a composite. And the division (or one of them?) is between AR and the woman. Here's a lightened version which shows it better, though you might have to zoom in a bit:

His left shoulder actually disappears right behind her right shoulder. It sure gives a funny impression, though.

I've just finished reading Private Lives and it got me thinking about just how my obssesion with AR has grown since I first started liking him.

 

I've narrowed it down to 10 defining points; 

1.I have AR wallpaper on my computer

2.When I get home from work I run to the computer and do a search for anything new AR related

3.My DVD collection is getting bigger and bigger

4.I have folders and subfolders in my documents devoted to him

5.I search magazines in Smiths for any mention of him

6.When in conversation with friends and family no matter what we are talking about I manage to bring him into the conversation with 'Did you know that Alan Rickman...'

7.I search e-bay for any related items

8.I read books and pays with any connection to him

9.I visit this site for my AR fix

and last

10.My family think i'm insanePlease tell me i'm not!!!

OT - I'm off to London in two days!!!! *squeeeee!* After all these years of dreaming, can't believe it's really happening! I've got the Villa book ready for inflight reading, my ticket to MNiRC, and a time setup to meet Heike for the first time. Toss in stops at all the chocolate shops, shopping for shoes at Harrods, and visits to all the art museums and I'm in heaven!

Claudia - I noticed that Patrick Stewart is starring in AR's role in Anthony and Cleopatra at Stratford on Avon. The dates are weird: it runs thru October, but it seems share the stage with Hamlet and other Shakespeare plays so I'm missing it by just a couple days! There's a photo of him as Anthony here: http://www.thepsn.org/psn/newsbriefs.asp

Rupert, James & Oliver talk 'Order of the Phoenix' on Radio 1

Quote:
Jo: So of all the films you've done so far, which is your favourite? It is possible to say?

Rupert: The first one was good fun because it was all new. I'd never done anything like it before.

Jo: And what age were you, Rupert, at that point?

Rupert: I was 11 when I first started. So that was a long time ago.

Jo: And working with big name actors, that must have been...

Rupert: Scary? Yeah. You know, like Alan Rickman, he's quite scary.

Jo: Oh no, come on, do tell. I love Alan Rickman. What's he really like?

Rupert: He's wicked, he is. Really nice guy. Just his voice and he's like huge. He was a bit scary at first but he's a really nice guy.


Wicked, scary and nice... just the kind of guy I liked the most!

I just looked at that tv-guide-type website of Rike's link through Babel Fish translator (even though it does give odd translations). I guess calling Mesmer a "Viennese Physicist" when he was, of course, a physician, isn't any odder than naming "The January Man" "In the Indication of the Virgin". . . .

 

darkzorro93: Well, "boil" is usually meant to mean "angry". "Hot" might be a better word???? Even though that's also used for angry as well as . . . what an AR fan might feel hearing about a naked AR scene.

Here's another little blurb about Nobel Son.  This story holds special significance for me because the Danville/San Ramon area hold very special memories for me. 

 

Danville man makes shift from hi-tech to Tinseltown

 

"they're hoping for a Toronto Film Festival premiere"  When is the Toronto festival again, Em? 

 

This article also mentions Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing and Charm School as well.  This film was highly recommended on the Discussion Party board a week or so ago.  AND it stars that cutie bad boy, Robert Carlysle too.

Dufus means an incompetent and stupid, though well-meaning, person; also called doofus.  However I have to disagree with the "though well-meaning" part  *snort*

 

And Dubya is the way some people spell the letter "W".

 

darkzorro93, thanks for the comments on Snow Cake.  I am getting very restless about seeing this one. 

 

Congrats on all that recently got Villa Golitsyn.  Be sure to let us know what you think.  Marlina, I promise to get your copy out to you this coming Monday.....promise cross my heart.

sonoma I agree with you about the A&C photo. As for the pic I post here earlier, it was kept in my AR pic fold under the name "66_Hostage". I know there must be sth, but the problem is i cannot remember whatever it is...~~~Now it is haunting me~~what you said is also make sense. I suspect it may be Mann Ist Mann, as there is a character in it called Mr. Wang. And, there is an actor standing on the right of the other pic from the same production who looks may be, perhaps, probable,...Besides, the whole scene suits the plot well. Oh i have no clue now.

 

Jan Thank you so much for the book! You are very nice!! Willy, Willy, I'm coming!~~

 

My friend who has watched SC at HK is very happy these days...very happy sigh~~~She told me the director and producers were there and a Q&A session was given when the movie ended. Of course Alan didn't appear. She also said the movie was very good, Alex killed someone accidentally and it was because of a car accident which happened to his son. But, Alex is a very good man. There are also some very !@#$%^parts in the movie that will make an AR fan boil. God, am I using the right word?

Sorry, no pics

 And now comes most probably a rather stupid question, I apologize beforehand, dear Claudia, but what does "Dufus Dubya" mean? From which words does this derive? Is it a synonym for GWB?

Susan and Jan, I agree, there will never be an autobiography and worse, he has become very careful with spontaneous talks, autographs etc (most probably due to these internet sharks, I hate so myself).

You're right about that, Susan CA, he does barely answer questions. And he has said, too, that if people want to know him "It's all in the work." So . . . it'll probably never happen.

I try not to hope for an authorized biography or an autobiography. He's said that the more people know about him personally, the more there is in between his work and the audience--and, of course, that's true. Also, he seems more defensive and closed down in recent interviews in the last year or two, wouldn't you say?

Here's the unwatermarked version by Perfect Lurker, posted on the OT book:

Laura: I did a search on GettyImages for Alan Rickman and it was on page 4 of 7.

Oh - it would be so wonderful if AR would write an autobiography. According to past interviews, he doesn't (or didn't) think his personal details are important, but maybe he is more amenable to the idea of sharing whatever experiences, thoughts, and views that he might be willing to.

That's great news about the hat auction--I'm so curious to see what AR's hat looks like.  I remember watching that program about Jonny Kennedy and EB--what a devastating disease.

 

Regarding the early theater photo posted by Camerata and DarkZorro93, I remember that one, too.  I think I've seen at least 2 different photos from the same production.  I know this came up last year, and I'm still wondering if it could be from A Man's a Man, which was a musical by Brecht with a military theme.  It was at Bristol in 1977 which would seem to make him too old for how he looks, but then when you see him in photos of Antony and Cleopatra with the RSC the next year, he looks about 17!  I don't know much about "The Hostage" though.  Is it the play by Brendan Behan?

Thank you for the little tid-bit, Michelle!  Good ear on hearing it and wonderful of you to share.  If it weren't for everyone here, we'd surely be behind the AR times.

 

I really like Anna Massey.  I hope she does do a book.  And how about AR???  Sounds like just the mere mention of something gets his creative juices flowing!   

 

In getting caught up, I see there was a little blurb about Villa Golitsyn!  I just have to let out a little YAY here!  Making progress.  I'll be happy when the other roles are named. 

 

On the hat front....its going to be interesting to see what AR donates as well as Bill Nighy and Emma Thompson!  You gotta know BN's and ET's is going to be a hoot.  Graham Norton must have a virtual smorgasbord of funny hats to choose from just from his show.

Vicki, yes that was the film. It was a terrible story wasn't it? The boy who fired the shot was too young to hang so they hanged Derek Bentley instead because they said he shouted out "Let Him have it, Chris" The police said this meant he was telling him to fire but the defence maintained that he was telling him to give over the gun. Either way he should never have hanged and his poor sister campaigned for almost 50 years to get him a pardon which was finally awarded in 1998. She died a year later. Sadly times haven't really changed and there are still gross miscarriages of Justice happening every year which is one very good reason why the Death Penalty should never be introduced.

While flicking channels early this morning, I stumbled on BBC1; they had their early morning 'Breakfast Show' on at that time and one of their guests was the delightful Anne Massey.    She was on to talk about her new autobiography, the presenters asked her how it came about and she said that she mentioned to a few 'friends' that she'd be interested in penning her life story and in the end, Alan Rickman set up a meeting with Random House, a publishing company.

 

It was only a brief mention for Alan, but the two presenters (the delightful Dermot Murnaghan, for any UKers out there!) seemed quite pleased and even said "Good for Alan Rickman, then!" quite a few times in response.

 

It's a tiny grasp at something, but if Alan is able to set up meetings between a well known publishing company (as far as I recall, Random House published all of Dan Brown's works...) and his friends, might be be in the process, or be open to persuasion to write his own autobiography?

I think I may have seen this once in the wee hours of the morning on television.  Was it about a boy with epilepsy who was a bit developmentally delayed who got involved in some crime (robbery or murder?) and got blamed for the entire thing (even though others were involved)?  I'm pretty sure that was the title.  It was truly sad and made me angry.  There was no one to represent this poor boy.  No one that had an understanding of his vulnerability and lack of comprehension.  Well...I think there was one man who tried but his efforts fell on deaf ears.  Frightening when you think about it....especially if you know someone with developmental delays.  Thank God times have changed.

But I like the Arthur Dent association, too!   Hmmm . . . my birth father's name was "Arden" so that's another reason. . .

Peter Medak has made a few great films but seems to have done more TV work recently. The Ruling Class is one of our favourite movies though very rarely shown and the other month I saw Let Him Have It (a very famous British case of injustice) which was brilliant.

Annette: The RC1 DVD of AABA has as an additional language French. Unfortunately you need a code free DVD player (or a hack to make your player code free). If you want to order the DVD Amazon.com or playusa.com (I ordered my copy there) has it in their catalogue.

 

  

 

Where has all the news rush of February gone? Couldn't Alan appear somewhere to end this drought?

 

I think not, so just let us wait patiently, because in September there will be definitely more news.

 

Have a nice day

I agree with Vicki . I would love to see Alan on Inside the Actors Studio. The part with the students interacting would be interesting since he can think of an answer on the fly. Then there would be those awkward moments when he squints and screws up his face before answering. Then the priceless moment of Favorite Curse Word. He always seems pained when he has to spit one out in his movies but then again maybe that's me, I let them fly with wild abandon at my house (I have animals, teenagers, and a husband).

Ahem.....thank you for letting me indulge in a little spontaneous celebration.  I feel like I've been released from Azkaban and can breathe again.  (just a little bookkeeper's/accountant's yearly primal outburst).

 

Thank you Jen (and a lurker) for that hilarious parody of the Charlie Rose interview.  I've never seen that before.  You've captured CR's fascination with himself and his own voice perfectly.  God, I would LOVE to see AR on Inside the Actor's Studio.  Especially his interaction with the students at the end of the program.  He seems devoted to helping young acting students and I would think he would like to do that sort of interview.  Let's hope it happens someday.

 

Well, thanks to all who contributed news, photos, and information to the GB these past few months.  Although I couldn't participate, you kept me entertained.  Looking forward to a year of new AR films! (Snowcake, Perfume, Nobel Son, Hp & the OOtP).  Woooo-Hooo!

Jen: Your parody is brilliant!  I had forgotten about it and after the discussion here went back and re-read the whole thing. You matched the pictures with the text beautifully. I think it's very clear that it is a parody if you read the subtitle, but sometimes you half-remember things and confuse them with something you've heard and, well, memory is a tricky thing. One thing about Charlie Rose - he does do a long interview with no commercial interruptions.

Hey, all!  Yes, that is indeed a parody interview--I know because I wrote it!   While doing screen captures from the real interview a few years back, I was heartily amused by the variety of AR's facial expressions, and after capturing a few particularly funny ones, that idea just came to mind.  I've always enjoyed a bit o' silliness (sometimes more than a bit!) stirred into my fandom--keeps me from taking the whole thing too seriously.  Sorry if it wasn't labeled all that clearly as parody . . .

 

I'd forgotten all about it, actually, so thanks for posting it!  It was fun to revisit!

 

Re: The real interview . . . I remember at the time feeling extremely grateful that AR was doing such a relatively long interview with anyone involved in U.S. media.  I think there are some real gems in there (the key quote in particular!), but I agree with those who have said that they feel that CR frequently interrupts, occasionally puts his own words into an interviewee's mouth, and is not all that prepared.  (I tried to show all of these things in the parody interview.) 

 

I generally feel that Rose does a better job with socio-political and historical subjects; I know he does interview a lot of artists, but he seems overawed by them at times, and I think that translates into awkwardness on his part and an uncomfortable feeling on the part of his guests.  I get the feeling that AR did not particularly enjoy himself, but then, he doesn't seem to enjoy talking about himself or his work in general . . . .

 

I've always kept fingers crossed that he would do either "Inside the Actors Studio" (I'd love that, though I dare say the ever-worshipful James Lipton might get on his last nerve! LOL) or, better yet, someone like Diane Rehm.  Love the NPR.  That might be just his cuppa . . . .

The problem was not in the interview itself, but in the unofficial part of Charlie Rose and AR communication. In case you have not read/seen it, I guess it may still be up on The Voice page. There, they have a row and well...AR also sad some things he really should've. IMHO.

Thanks, CatsPlay and Susan CA. I agree, Susan that CR's interview wasn't very good and he interrupted too much. That's annoying. There's nothing worse in an interview than an interviewer who interrupts or who makes a lengthy statement, speaking for the person, then says, "Right?", or in any other way makes themselves the primary focus of the interview. I want to hear the person being interviewed, not the interviewer. Especially if it's someone in whom I'm really interested.

I bought the interview from Rose's organization, and they didn't mention any other appearance by AR nor have I ever heard of one. But I heard the same comment on its having gone badly that I gather you did, and I was surprised that anyone would mention it. Charlie Rose is always rude--interrupts constantly, etc. I'm told that, for Rose, he was fairly polite to AR--much less interrupting than with, say, Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison. But he hadn't read or seen Private Lives, he was otherwise unprepared, and the lighting was simply brutal. (I really don't know how Rose keeps his job as the interviewer of important artists, considering his lack of manners and preparation.) If you watch carefully, you can see tiny contractions in AR when Rose interrupts him or says something particularly dumb.

I found today there is an archive of Charlie Rose videos on Google Videos, and that you can purchase the AR Charlie Rose interview on Google Videos for 99 cents.

 

it is here

 

Once you purchase it, you can download the higher res version and download the Google video player to play it.  However, you can then use the 'download for ipod' option, which then allows you download an AVI file, which is about 108 MB.  It is about 33 minutes long, and then another 22 minutes of some unrelated person.

I don't recall this being mentioned, but Snow Cake was shown at the Trondheim International Film Festival in Norway during the last week in March.  Legally blonde, at the Alan Rickman Appreciation Society, saw it, and if you read this thread from page 4 through page 6, you can see her thoughts on it.  There are some more spoilers.  She says AR is present in almost every scene in the movie.

Dumpy Doris: It's ok, it's ok, it's ok!  I think everyone's words have importance. But . . . so you were talking about the very one I dislike myself - the one in the National Gallery (I still don't think it fits the definition of caricature - comic). That one's not by Red Tango - the one on my website was - the one with the cutout of AR with a toed sock on his head:

 

You're right - no right or wrong as far as taste is concerned. However, I doubt that portrait was meant to be disrespectful. Maybe he (the artist) thinks it's a really nice likeness!???

Of course you're not all bad - who is? And that was a beautiful daisy! Thank you!  This is getting confusing . . . back to fun and frivolity! Did we ever really leave it??? I don't think so....

 I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry! I didn't think my words had such importance!

Jan, AR  Guestbook (Suzanne's), portrait from the National Gallery, click on "here it is". Several other people reacted to it negatively. I don't think one can find a "right" or "wrong" when it comes to taste, though.(Was it by Red Tango?)

Sabine, thanks for that explanation! I will never post a photo or speak of that subject.

Hope you saw my "daisy post", see, I'm not all bad. Thanks to all for your Easter wishes, gives this guestbook a fun, sharing feel.

That's wonderful of AR to help the drama students!

 

Dumpy Doris: Were you, by any chance, referring to my website when you mentioned the picture on the "AR Guestbook"? I just put one of Red Tango's pictures from A Day with Alan Rickman on there, so I thought you might be, although that's not the name of the site.

 

Anyway, I respect your opinion and, in general, I agree with you on caricatures (which that is), but I like Red Tango's drawing because it's not as extreme as some. You'd have to ask her about her intention, but I don't take it that she meant it to ridicule him. To me, that photo is silly and funny in the same way as the dance at the end of a certain film. Now I HATE that portrait that was recently posted here. It's been called a caricature, but the dictionary says:

Quote:
caricature - usually comic representation of a person by exaggeration of characteristic traits.

That portrait isn't comic or meant to be, is it? And it doesn't really exaggerate his traits. Anyway, to me it's just a really bad drawing. But that's my opinion. I will never try to see it, even if I visit England some day.

 

What I'm getting at is that we all have our likes and dislikes and our lines drawn defining what's tasteful, respectful, and funny. I can promise you one thing, Doris . . . you're not likely to find any new pictures on my Favorite Photos page - for 2 reasons. 1) You people here are 'way ahead of me - I never find anything first, and 2) If I do, I'll post it here, too.

 

So, I'm suggesting you do what I do: if you don't like it, don't look at it! Whether you were talking about my site or not. No malice taken, if you were talking about my site.  As my mother used to say: "Every fellow to his taste, said the old lady as she kissed the cow!" I could be called an old lady but I'm not into kissing cows. Come to think of it, I did used to kiss my horse, though!

From today's telegraph:

Alan puts Hugh to shame

Hugh Grant delighted the staff and pupils at Latymer Upper School, in west London, by trumpeting his plans to set up a bursary to help children from less well-off families attend his alma mater.

Four years on, not a penny has materialised from the notoriously parsimonious star of Four Weddings and a Funeral, but others, who didn't feel the need to make a song and dance about doing their bit for the school, have been generous with both their time and money.

First Mel Smith donated 1.5 million to establish a charitable trust for the school of the kind that Grant had talked about and now another Old Latymerian, Alan Rickman, has pitched in with an offer of practical help for its budding thespians.

"Alan is currently filming his part as Professor Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and when he dropped by to address A-level drama students the other day he said he would try to get a couple of them work on the next film in the series as extras," says my man at the blackboard.

"And he has also agreed to put two stage and set design students in contact with designers from the Royal Court Theatre."

Actions speak louder than words, Hugh.

Claudia, GA, big question mark here,  . As I said "It's ok to post pictures of Rima Horton, but not talk about her?" was actually referring to the odd practice of objecting to something, but continuing to allow it's existence. I had a feeling her picture would remain.

It's a great photo, that blue suit (I'd like to comment on it, could I do so in the Discussion Party?), the pretty hair, I'm even thinking about getting mine cut like that, but why in the world is the picture Yulia posted still there for everyone to see?!?!?!

If it's objectionable to post Rima Horton's photo, why not delete it?

As I asked before "It's OK to post Rima Horton's picture"? please say "yes" or "no" . But as I understand it, we just don't talk about her, although there are exceptions. Is that correct? am I following you?

Hey everybody, maybe I'm old-fashtioned, but that sketch of AR on "AR Guestbook" is creepy and disrespectful, but I have a personal dislike for caricatures.    cartoons are cute and funny , but that sketch seems to ridicule AR. No malice intended.

CatsPlay--I just skimmed through that 30-page article and it looks like there is a bit more background information, plus the interviewer prompts Minghella to talk more about his influences and experience prior to making the film.  I don't remember all of Mingella's monologe from the DVD, so I don't know how much new material is in the interview, but there is probably something interesting there that wasn't covered either in the monologue or the DVD commentary.  I'd say it's worth a look, anyway.

 

Vera--sorry for the misunderstanding!  I didn't look at where you were writing from before I responded.  Please email me about TWG and maybe I can help you.

 

I love Easter!

But it's fun doing the research and finding all the ARt-related stuff like his own creations, dolls, magazine features, theater memoribilia, etc. I hope you left a pin on my guest map!

I noticed this book which contains 30 pages from Minghella on TMD

 

My First Movie:  Twenty Celebrated Directors Talk About Their First Film. Stephen Lowenstein:  Pantheon Books, 2000.  See Chapter 12, pp. 214-244.

 

Would you say it is worth getting/reading this -- i.e. is there much difference between what is written here and what Minghella said in his hour plus ramble of director's commentary on the DVD?

Hey everybody--glad you are using the Lifetime Reading site.  It needs about three weeks of solid work to bring it up to date, though! 

 

Vera--I think the differences between the TWG play and screenplay are enough to make reading both a valuable experience.  It can be expensive to purchase them, however.  Why not investigate your local public or academic library--you can take a look for free.  You might even be able to borrow a copy through interlibrary loan if your local libraries do not own it.  I have listed a couple of sources for the play here and here on my site if you need ordering info--note that the entire play was also published in a magazine.

 

Susan in CA (sorry about all that rain!) I agree that AR is a collaborator, but in various interviews about TWG he has mumbled something about how the only contribution he made to the screenplay was to switch things around a bit.  I think he is being modest!  I also see his painterly eye in the look and flow of the scenes, whereas I think Sharman M is more concerned with the sound and flow of the text.  Just an impression.

 

And now for another smiley!!!

Hello Susan in CA--I can partially answer your musing about how much involvement AR had in the screenplay for The Winter Guest.  If you read the play and then the screenplay, you can see how scenes were moved from one part of the play to another and how some dialog was cut or slightly changed.  I think for the most part the changes worked very well to translate the play into something that would have more of a visual impact.  The artistic hand of AR is very much in evidence!

 

And I am so glad to post something so I have an excuse to use one of these:

Therefore, I always assumed that they were equal partners. It was also said that AR came up with the initial idea for the greater part of the production set a wall with bullet holes in it. The actual design was done by Hildegard Bechtler.

Hey, if you want to have some German texts about AR translated - don't mind mailing me I'd be glad to do it^^ At the moment I have much time and I love the English language, so I could practice it with that =)

There's no information available on any of those topics, so far as I know, and I've read the play, every word I could stand of the articles and reviews and many that I couldn't. It rarely can be sorted out with a collaboration (even in the case of music by X, lyric by Y); people influence each other, ideas spill and flow, they build on one another. Who knows what functions AR performed on the film script of The Winter Guest, for example? He has a screen writing credit for it, and he says every word was written by Macdonald.

MNiRC question: Has anyone heard or read exactly which parts of the play were created by AR and which parts by Katherine Viner? I know the actual words were from RC's emails and letters. But do we know who selected what went into the play? Who came up with the stage direction? The concept of the set design? Etc? I'm just curious.

If you recall I recorded the BBC South Today coverage of the Beckett event in Reading. INTJ very kindly directed me how to get it onto file. There is one slight problem though. The clip is only 2mins 30 sec but is a very big file of 174mb and way too big for yousendit. Until my mentor tells me how to reduce the size of the thing I have managed to upload one segment (with Rickman in, of course) to yousendit and will do the other segment too. Hopefully I can get the whole thing on eventually as it's quite interesting and has Anthony Minghella on, Claudia

 

This is 33mb:

 Michelle! Thanks for sharing with us.  I really do hope  Megan Dodds gets the chance to tour the US with this play.  I haven't seen it so I don't have first hand knowledge but everyone that has says she's truly amazing in the role.  AR and Katherine Viner were very lucky to find her.  She not only does the role to perfection but she has such a striking resemblance to Rachel Corrie as well.

I had been a bit worried about how one person could hold your attention for 1 and a half hours but Megan Dodds was so alive and so engaging that you are with her every step of the way. If you ever get the opportunity you should take it . It was an extraordinary evening. I'm so glad I went.

Don't worry "lurker coming out of hiding".  We were all trying to help Yulia.  She is young and seems to be very impressionable.  This is why I think we've all (including people in other groups) tried to use "kid gloves" with her.   

 

Yes, one can get several hits by doing a search on RH's name.  Some of the hits do contain contact information such as address and phone number.  This has led several onliners (young and old) to believe they have really found some sort of link to getting closer to AR.  There was even one person who claims she has been in touch with AR's people and has some big secret to share........if you join her group.  So yes even though the thought of people bragging they have a phone number is kinda creepy, we can be confident in the fact that precautions have been taken in order to protect AR as well as Rima Horton from such intrusions into their privacy.

It sucks that Snow Cake is premiering on a Thursday at the Tribeca Film Festival. Then again, I could totally make it back in time if I left Boston after my last class for NYC. It takes 4 1/2 hours by bus, since I can't drive (I'm a city girl, heh. I'm pretty sure that I read in an interview that AR doesn't drive when he's in London. Hence all the pics of him hailing cabs?)

Do you guys think seeing the movie is worth it? I'd also have to miss one class. But I do want to see the movie . Decisions decisions

If anyone is around NYC, I do recommend going to this if you have kids. They usually hold this Tribeca arts fair at the same time and it's alot of fun with face painting, dances, arts and crafts, etc. Heck, I went when I was 16 and loved it At one point, I turned around and saw Whoopie Goldberg but then I realized it was only her wax statue that they must've wheeled out from Madame Tussauds. Oh, and my friend met Jon Stewart and his family in the park next to the Tribeca Performing Arts Center while she was babysitting.

So, it's OK to post Rima Horton's picture, but not to talk about her? I would'nt want anyone to talk about her, too - however....well, sometimes our talk about Alan is not the kind of respect you would give the Pope! the mere existence of AR fan sites must be embarrassing at times for AR. I can understand Yulia's confusion as to what would be appropriate. This is definitely "learn as you go!" No malice intended. No lecture implied. The opinions of this poster does not necessarily reflect that of the owners' of this site, etc.

Sorry girls, I think your response was a wee bit harsh to Yulia.

Yulia, I think you have a lot of youthful enthusiasm and I'm not at all surprised that you just as eagerly offered your cooperation. Good for you! glad AR makes you so happy!

Here's  a thought: if respect has to be earned, does that imply that it's proper to disrespect someone until they have your own personal standards?

Yulia, I have to agree with everything that Red Tango said in her post.  There is a proper way of contacting a celebrity and trying to track them down on a personal level certainly isn't the way.  I've followed some of your comments in other groups and if I'm not mistaken, you've been cautioned about this before.  Here is AR's proper address in case you need it. 

 

Mr. Alan Rickman
c/o Melanie Parker
ICM Oxford House
76 Oxford Street
London
W1D 1BS
U.K

 

Melanie Parker does an excellent job as AR's assitant so you needn't worry--she will pass on your message. 

 

As for this group and Rima Horton.  I think we all respect her in the highest way but we try not to talk about her other than when she's spotted with AR, etc.  AR made it very clear in interviews early on in his career that she did not ask for the celebrity lifestyle and its not fair to her to impose it on her.

 

I really do hope you understand and know that we are offering friendly advice and not attacking you at all.

Yulia, I`m not sure I understand you point of view either. How do you know so much about Rima? Reading about Alan saying she`s a "saint"  isn`t enough to think you know that person, least of all that you "love" her. I`m sure everybody here admires her or at least respects her but I don`t think we should take this too far. I`m not to keen on discussing about someone who obviously doesn`t want to be in the spotlight either. And I have to second RedTango on this, I think calling her personally is a little out of place. And another thing I couldn`t quite understand is what did you mant when you said we should "pray" for her.

  Hi Yulia,     

 

    I don't post here very often, but I read your comment about finding Rima's phone number and trying to call her.

 

    I would suggest not trying to contact her by phone or asking for personal information like that here on the forum..people like Alan and Rima both enjoy and deserve their privacy. Their time "out of the spotlight" and having a life beyond fans and fandom is valuable to them. Personal information like home addresses, home or business phone numbers or mobile numbers should be theirs to give only to whom they choose...fans should not be calling them or trying to track either of them down this way.

 

  Alan has an assistant in London who handles fan mail and correspondence..probably best to try to contact either of them thru her. It may not seem as personal but this is the proper protocol instead of hunting around for someone's phone number, which you are unlikely to find anyway.

 

  I hope you understand what I am saying..there are ways to go about contacting people and in this case Alan's assistant is set up to handle fan correspondence..although don't expect her to give you anyone's phone number!

 

  I don't have the assistant info, if someone else here does maybe they can pass it along?

Yulia, I think it's a general consensus among all Alan fans that Rima is left out of the equation as far as many discussions are concerned.   After all, she hasn't really *chosen* to be in the 'spotlight', so I don't feel it fair for her to be dragged into it.   Alan has made it perfectly clear in the past that his private life (including his partner) are exactly that: private, and as an Alan fan, I'm sure you admire him for his talent (and his handsome good looks) and I think we should focus on those things, rather than intrude on his private affairs.

Thought you might be interested in the film summary of Snow Cake from the Tribeca Film Festival site.  Just another take on what we know.

 

Snow Cake
Spotlight
[SNOWC] 2006 112 min
Canada, U.K.
Directed By: Marc Evans
North American Premiere
MYFEST:
If this film sounds good, try these:

arrow Driving Lessons

arrow Wah-Wah
Snow Cake

The intimate Snow Cake combines childlike wonder with matters of life and death to surprising effect. A taciturn Englishman recently freed from prison, Alex (Alan Rickman) is driving through Ontario when he begrudgingly picks up the vivacious 19-year-old hitchhiker Vivienne (Emily Hampshire). After Vivienne dies in a terrible car accident from which he walks away unscathed, the remorseful Alex goes to the frozen backwater of Wawa, Ontario to apologize to the girl's mother Linda (Sigourney Weaver), an alluringly attractive autistic woman. After listening with both rapture and fear to the rapid-fire proclamations of Linda, he decides to stay on to help with Vivienne's funeral. In Wawa, he develops a relationship with the local sophisticate, Maggie (Carrie-Anne Moss) and evades the suspicious stare of the town's one cop (James Allodi). As Alex, who lost his own son in a similarly tragic way, moves towards a reconciliation with his past, he discovers the unique world Vivienne and her mother created together - one filled with iridescent paper snowflakes, twinkling lights, backyard trampoline antics, and giddy games of Scrabble. The film ultimately thrives on contrasts: Alex's reserved stillness versus Linda's uninhibited movement; the austere cleanliness of Linda's house versus the snow she likes to eat from her sunny yard; and the survival of her unusual lifestyle amidst the town's more conventional citizenry. The warm, expansive soundtrack of Canadian indie-pop royalty, Broken Social Scene, balances the potential loneliness of Wawa's icy environs. In the hands of director Marc Evans, reality's cold crunch becomes an enchanted dream, singing with possibility.

Another good review for MNiEC HERE.

If you recall, there is an exhibition of work by Stuart Pearson Wright at the The National Portrait gallery It includes a drawing of Alan which (sorry can't remember the name) somebody showed us earlier. Anyhoo, the collection of all the pix is now in a book called Most People Are other People which is available from the Gallery HERE and more details from Stuart Pearson Wright HERE (Click on News)

annette, the same thing happens to me when I try watching something on youtube. It`s because of your internet connection. The best thing (as CatsPlay so kindly told me) is to click "pause" just as the clip begins. The buffering will continue and when it`s complete you can click play again and the video will surely NOT stop again. Best of luck to you!

Good morning every body,

 

I'm back from my premature Easter holiday. Unfortunately I spent some time at the dentist.

 

Rickman's Easter Card went for about 506.

This is the link: (and for our German readers: Guckst du hier!) *Sorry couldn't resist*

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6619344611&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:UK:12

 

Sometimes I find it really annoying that with a normal salary you couldn't afford a genuine "Rickman". But at least you get a picture. And without eBay or the Internet you would even know about such things.

 

But enough musing for now

have a nice day

 

LG Chalebh

To be directed by Trevor Nunn and produced by Cameron Mackintosh, now did I read here or on Suzanne's guest book a few months ago about AR spotted having lunch with CM? Couldn't you just see the Man as Henry Higgins?

Dark Mark!  You're absolutely right! 

 

I came to know of Rickmasworth through a Anne in Manhatten. She vacationed in England a few years back and she shared this picture from the tube station. 

 

 

Then, dear pal SuzyQ morphed the image into "Train full of Alans".

  Hello and welcome to alanrickmanfrek and Cristina.  I hope you'll have a good time with us.  Our group is very knowledgable and helpful.

 

pat! Thank you sooo much for sharing with us.  I look forward to the day you have the means to share your pictures.  It must have been a real treat to meet him back then because he was able to take a lot of time for his fans. 

 

Dee thanks for the news on the MNiRC panel discussion.  I read that earlier and wondered how they can have a balanced and fair discussion without the creators there.  I hope that eveyone on the panel has at least seen the play. There's nothing I hate more than someone commenting about something they haven't even taken the time to see or read.    

 

Camerata, your new wallpapers are nice.  Thank you.

 

In addition to the filming of Rasputin taking AR to Russia, in the early 80s, he did a USSR tour with The Brothers Karamazov as well.

 

Your drawing is wonderful, darkzorro93!  You are very talented.

 

Chris, the picture with Amanda Ooms is definitely Mesmer era.  The other man in the image is Mesmer director Roger Spottiswoode.

Hello Rachael- I am also young (fifteen) and I think it is really cool that you like Alan Rickman too.  I think I started liking him when I was like, nine.  All my friends were like "eww...brittany likes some guy who is going to die tomorrow" haha.  It was mean, but now my friends live with my insaneness, and even agree with it.  Dark Mark and Cristina, what great pictures!  I love the sexy and dare I say it...seductive look on Alan's face there.  Yay for Alan!  I really hope there are some new photos from OOTP soon, because Alan Reportadly started filming this month!  Now I much go and start a search!

In those two pictures Susan CA posted, not only are the poses exactly alike, every detail down to each wrinkle on that beautiful face, but even the two watches show exactly the same time, even if the resolution on the one makes it difficult to see.

Yulia Ivanova and Rachael i am so glad you guys are young alan rickman fans. I am glad i am not the only young one who's in love with him and thinks he's the sexiest man alive. What made me like him so much was him playing snape. I first saw the first movie  when i was like 11 i saw it in theaters. I really didn't notice him to much but when the second movie came out when i was 12 i started to like him. I really never really started looking him up on the internet until i was like 13. And now that am 14 i am in total love with hiim. Hey Rachael i played in a soccer tournament twice in Virginia. I live in PA. One time alan rickman was in Pittsburg and i didn't even know it.

The two pix are in sub-album "Black t-shirt."

Maybe the younger-looking one was photoshopped. Or maybe he had two pix taken 15 years apart in exactly the same pose. Or maybe....

That's a wonderful picture, Michelle, it would be great to see it larger. The Mesmer-era one is nice, too, Chris and Yulia.

 

darkzorro93: Considering the work AR has done with young people (the YTV, was it? thing, etc.), I bet he'd be happy to know that he had inspired someone, particularly someone young, to try something new! Never stop trying new things - it keeps you young.

Chris,

I have been a big fan after seeing Alan in the telivision film Barchester Chronicles in 1986.Yes I first met Alan in 1992 when I went to see him in Hamlet, and  waited at the stage door to met him [the play and Alan were wonderful] .

Since then I have met him over 20 times, the last time being in New York when I saw him in Private Lives on Broadway in 2002 it was also wonderful.

As I lived in London at the time I  was  able to go to the theatre.I do have many pics to prove ,but I can not oblige at the moment I do not have a scanner. May I add he, is a very charming man and very friendly to his fans.   pat

Barnard to Hold 'Rachel Corrie' Panel
April 05, 2006

Barnard College, the women's liberal arts college affiliated with Columbia University, will host a panel discussion April 7 about the controversy surrounding the postponed New York Theatre Workshop production of My Name Is Rachel Corrie. Adapted by journalist Katharine Viner and actor Alan Rickman from the writings of a young American activist who met her death in the Gaza Strip in 2003, the play is currently running in London. The postponement of its scheduled U.S. premiere has stirred debate on both sides of the Atlantic.

The panel discussion is described as "an effort to explore the wider issues," and the participants will include John Heilpern, theatre critic for The New York Observer; Gregory Mosher, theatre director and head of the Columbia University Arts Initiative; playwright Christopher Shinn; Alisa Solomon, journalist, theatre critic, and professor at the Columbia School of Journalism; Kelly Stuart, professor of playwriting at Columbia; and Marvin A. Carlson, professor of theatre and comparative literature at the City University of New York. The moderator will be Shawn-Marie Garrett, professor of theatre at Barnard.
The discussion will be held at Barnard's Minor Latham Playhouse, at 119th Street and Broadway, from noon to 1:30 pm. For more information, go to http://www.barnard.edu or call (212) 854-2079.

I see, Alma. I also noticed the photo on that Japanese web.(no way to miss any AR photo~! HOHO) A pity i cannot read her description, but in that pic his coat does seem a little bit odd. You see the white stripe on the left side? As for clothing, i love him in suits or leather jackets best!!! My personal understanding of what has been discussed about the "hair photo": it appears in a book called GQ Cool, a collection of portraits of who is deemed "cool". some quotes of the photographer about the shoot is on a corner of the pic. and i am not sure if the pic has ever appeared on certain issue of GQ, so i post an AR cover photo. But no answer yet.

BTW, the "hair photo" is perfect~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`` and this pic is of my notebook

Sue- That magazine is wonderful! I've never seen those pics or the article before, so thank you so much for scanning it. So cool that it's autographed too

Darkzorro- No, I'm American but I'm majoring in Japanese. I like to look at the Japanese AR pages for fun and to practice Japanese. Btw, the author of the page you linked went to see Private Lives. I was expecting her to tell some stories about seeing him because she seemed to have gone to the stage door alot, but each time she just described his clothing in alooot of detail! Silly At least she took a picture
AR is younger than my dad but older than my mom. That's because my dad is ancient and my parents had me when they were pretty old (I'm 20.) And AR still looks younger than my dad has in a long time because my dad went bald before he was thirty, hehe (I can say that because I know my parents will never see this forum. My mom prefers Orlando Bloom) Speaking of hair, what is this mysterious "hair photo" you were talking about earlier?

Camerata,Kate.I did not say he seemed old to me,only one photo.I absolutely agree that he looks as if he is 45 on the last photos.Actually,when I was 12 and I loved Snape I thought that the actor playing this role is 45.But oneday my friend annonced me it in such way:"Yulia,Alan Rickman is 57.You are 12.ARE YOU MAD???"But of course I did not care,neither now.

Alan is such kind of man that becomes better with years and the same thing is with wine.

By the way once I asked 30 men(not Alan fans) such question:"How old is Alan Rickman?".And great!Almost all of them told that he was from 42-48!!!!!!And Alan was 59 that time.

Camerata,you've made lovely wallpapers!

Chris,you love Russian literature too?WoW!Did you try to read in Russian?Very difficult language.Even I make a great deal of mistakes.

Camerata and Yulia i'm 24 and AR doesn't seem old to me!

Probably because he gets better with age.  I was shocked when I found out his actual age.  He certainly doesn't look it

 

 

Also I just watched 'Something The Lord Made' for the first time.  It was so interesting.  I'd never heard of the blue babies until now.

Just goes to show how you can learn things by being an AR fan. I've been looking on the internet for information all about Blalock and Thomas since then!!

Hello everyone!
Don't know if anyone remembers me. Just wanted to tell that I just came back from an unbelievable week in London.

We spontaneously decided to see MNiRC last Friday and I've seen our man.
My friend and I are going to write a full travel report which will include the "Alan-tale" of course. I'll post the link to the story when it's finished, but I guess it's going to take some time, for we have to write so much.

But what I can tell you already is... he looked SO good.

Cheers guys! Have a nice weekend!

I have been a big fan of Alans since 1986, I can honestly say that picture was taken in the last few years,I met him several times in 1992 whenI saw him on stage in Hamlet, and after at the stage door.so you might say I got a bit close.   pat

The Guest Book is for Villa Golitsyn discussion right now, so I hope anyone who has read the book will drop by and discuss! The only problem I've notice so far is that double spacing doesn't produce a space between paragraphs like it does here. Everything is all run together. Tomorrow when I'm not so tired I'll have to try to find out what's happening. Right now I think I'll go do some serious snoring!

Yulia, i may have joined your group before, i will visit it more. Love Chekhov's stories and Tchaikovsky's music. Here we have many AR fans, from junior high student to mid-aged housewife. Have u seen Ralph Fiennes' new film, the one called "White Countess" ? In which major female characters are Russian, the cast are mainly British, and the story took place in where i live-SH. Is it funny?

Jan - you also asked about Nobel Son in the OT Gb but I`ll answer here: Nobel Son is still in post production but officially they said it will be released in 2006. It`s curious how there isn`t too much buzz around it all, considering the cast and all. We`ll just have to wait and see but as I`ve just recently discovered Randall Miller I`m sure the movie will be a good piece.

A little more on the GQ Cool book.  When it was released, there was a humorous little article published in Evening Standard which I finally found in Suzanne's archives:

 

From 6 October "Evening Standard":

HEADLINE: Rickman stays cool
londoner's diary

THAT BIBLE of male fashion, GQ magazine, launched GQ Cool at Somerset House last night, a collection of portraits defining the essence of male cool over the last decade. A leather-clad David Beckham, David Bowie, Noel and Liam Gallagher and Britain's favourite villain, actor Alan Rickman, are some of those deemed cool enough to feature. I bumped into Rickman as he was handing over his American Express card. "I've got to buy the book because I'm in it," he told me, "my picture is very good because you can't see my face".

Soon to start filming for Harry Potter, he was ambiguous about being branded as cool. "I'm not sure what it means actually"

Author and GQ fashion director Jo Levin had no doubts: "Rickman has it.

Cool takes time, it's not about looks, you have to acquire it."

 

I think that's what made me whip out the plastic and buy the book.

 

Welcome back, Sonoma!

Laura, never see this pic before. What does it mean, AR has played the role of King Charles II? Of course, he looks much nicer than the King.

Catsplay, have u tried GOOGLE?? I can only figure out the last part of the last sentence is "Mob Nob biscuits as we discuss the shoes"...keep on trying~~

I think you've got it, Sue!  I've never heard of Hob Nobs Biscuits, must be an English thing.  Apparently this appears in a book by Jo Levin called GQ Cool.  I've just ordered it from Amazon.  I'd always just thought it was in a magazine.

I came across the mag containing this photo on ebay today, and I'm trying to decipher what the words on the page say.  Can anyone help?

 

 

So far I can make out:

 

Alan Rickman

16 March 1992

Gerald Foster (?)

 

Alan was my first cover for GQ.  He's very particular about his clothing so I take the whole contents of the fashion cupboard to his house for his perusal.  I have fond memories of sitting in Alan Rickman's kitchen drinking endless *something (doesn't look like 'cups'* of tea and and *munching?* ....

 

and then I can't make out the rest.  Does anyone have this magazine or the photo with the text?

Camerata, thank you so much for sharing your MNiRC experience with us.  I'm sorry that you didn't get to meet AR but it must have been a thrill to be able to chat with Megan Dodds.  She is, after all, the star of the show.  Do you mind uploading your London pics again for we late comers.  There must have been a rush to download them because the link has already expired.     

 

I don't have the March archives up yet.  I should have it up this evening.  As for the first posts from April, you should be able to use the drop down box at the end of this page to navigate to the earlier posts. 

 

AFNH, thanks for the heads up about the Radio 3 Beckett evening on Sunday.  I'll try to listen.  Especially for Juliet Stevenson's piece.

 

Hikity, have fun in London!  We want to read all about it when you return.  As for Photobucket, I tested both accounts--ARDLHGB and ARDLHGB2 and was able to get in.  It does look like the password is case sensitive.  Let me know if you have any other problems. 

 

Dumpy Doris, Linda and Sevvy are the same person and she did have a birthday yesterday.

 

Oh my goodness, Roxysue! Thank you for the piece that AR and company did for the Beckett event.  How impressive for the trio to have done Play with only 30 minutes rehearsal!  I'm so glad that Anthony Minghella paid special attention to their performance.  Have a safe trip and hurry back, Roxysue.

 

Ali-Pat, the case against that PI in California seems to be getting a lot of tinsel town people in trouble....or exposing dirty little secrets.  I do have to disagree with the statement in that article that Pellicano might go down as the world's most prominent eavesdropper though...I think that title might go to Dufus Dubya!  

 

I got an answer from Website Toolbox about the new spam tool.  Its not good, ladies. 

 

Unfortunately, we cannot make the image clearer because doing so would make it easier for the spammers. There is image recognition software out there than can use algorithms and logic to guess the answer to the image verification. Although most spammers do not have the money to buy or create such software, it is available and could possibly be used. The image is somewhat hard to read so that the image recognition software gets confused and guesses the wrong answer. Humans on the other hand are smart enough to make out the letters much better each time.

 

So there you have it.  The only other alternative is to turn the feature off.  Since we're all in this together, I'll take an unofficial vote as to what the majority wants.  Email me and let me know.

Michael Gambon, Stephen Rea and Rupert Graves are mentioned, but can't see a mention of AR. However, at 10.00pm, Juliet Stevenson performs a 15 minute monologue called Mouth, written for a woman's voice.

They were like gold dust because Reading football club got promoted on Sat. to the Premiership for the first time in their 134 year history !! Anyway, the paper said that Anthony Mingella paid particular tribute to  ( QUOTE ) Rosamund Pike, Felicity Kendal and Alan Rickman for the extraordinary difficult piece they performed with just a half hours rehearsal. It was indeed " Play ". Hope this helps . See you all in 10 days !

Elisa : great video, XF rocks !

Claudia : there is a problem with the archives, I can't access to the archives of March and see the posts of April 1, 2 and 3, it's weird.

What a pity for the Hello vote

Thank you so much girls for the wonderful new caps and pictures. Alan is so beautiful on it, he looks like a young man, woooooow!!!! *falling of the chair* lol

I came back in France yesterday at 1 PM because on Sunday evening, the plane was late so I had to sleep at a hotel near the Paris airport. What an adventure ! lol
So, I went to see the play on Saturday evening. I was at the 2nd row, at the middle. Megan Dodds was wonderful, it was funny at the beginning and so moving after, I had tears at the edge of my eyes and many people cried too. Before the play, I asked to the commisionaire if Alan was there and I hadn't understand everything but he said that he was really sympathetic After the play, I waited Alan in front of the stage door and I talked to a man who waited Megan Dodds because he did almost the same thing than Rachel, he went to Israel this year. So, I was with him when he talked to her (she's nice and very beautiful) and one of the producers, David Johnson was with her and after they were sitting next to us at the pub where we went lol After they left the stage door, we went downstairs and I asked if Alan was here but the woman told me (if I've understood well lol) that he was busy because he shot a movie, apparently HP5.
So, I'm really happy to have seen the play but a bit sad not having seen Alan. Maybe another time
These are some souvenirs


And me in front of the theater lol

Daily Telegraph

4th Apeil 2006

 

Charles Spencer reviews My Name is Rachel Corrie at the Playhouse Theatre

 

By rights, this production shouldn't be playing in London at all, but in America. The show was set to open last month at the New York Theatre Workshop but was pulled in what its director, Alan Rickman, has called "censorship born out of fear".

 

First seen in May last year at the Royal Court, this monologue is undeniably a hot potato. Rachel Corrie was a middle-class American student, who in January 2003 joined the International Solidarity Movement in Gaza, where, among other things, she acted as a human shield against the Israelis. Less than two months after arriving there, she was run over and killed by an Israeli bulldozer as she attempted to stop it destroying a Palestinian home. She was 23.

 

The play, culled from Corrie's own journals, letters and e-mails, which have been edited by Rickman and Katharine Viner, offers a powerful portrait of youthful idealism. But no one could call it a balanced piece of reportage on the desperately vexed nature of Israeli-Palestinian relations. And those relations have become still more difficult in recent weeks, following Sharon's coma and the Palestinian election of Hamas.

 

Corrie's assertion to her mother that "the vast majority of Palestinians right now are engaging in Gandhian non-violent resistance" strikes an especially hollow note, entirely ducking the question of Palestinian suicide bombers. And, when I reviewed the play last year, I received a poignant letter from a reader, appending a list of other young women called Rachel, all of them innocent Israeli victims of the Palestinian bombers.

 

For some, Rachel Corrie has become a heroine and martyr. Others view her as a dangerously nave young woman who took sides in a conflict she didn't fully understand. Some even assert that the house she was trying to protect in Ramah concealed a tunnel used for running weapons in from Egypt.

 

There is, however, no law which states that theatre must be fair and even-handed. Quarrelling with Corrie's opinions becomes part of the dramatic engagement, and you don't need to be persuaded of the rightness of her views in order to be moved by her ardour.

 

In fact, what this play, and in particular Megan Dodds's passionately intense performance, captures most movingly is the sheer aliveness of the young woman.

 

Corrie appears to have been an astonishing mix: self-obsessed and insecure - "scattered and deviant and loud" in her own characteristically vivid words - but also someone who couldn't perceive a wrong without wanting to right it. At the close, we are shown a film of the golden-haired girl aged 10, outlining her dream of ending world poverty by the year 2000.

 

Corrie wrote with candour and precision on everything from boyfriend troubles to the suffering and endurance she witnessed in Gaza. In Dodds's performance, she can seem both a self-righteous pain in the bum, and winningly engaged, funny and vulnerable - sometimes at the very same time.

 

Rickman's production powerfully captures her journey from privileged student to the raw, real world of the Middle East, with the help of Hildegard Bechtler's remarkable design of blasted concrete and dust that powerfully captures the devastation of Gaza.

 

One leaves the theatre mourning not only Rachel Corrie's death but also the death of the idealism and ardour of one's own distant youth, those far-off days when everything seemed to matter so intensely

Wow, CatsPlay!  Two great finds! 

 

AR's art for Gatwick Detainee's Welfare Group.  Isn't it amazing how he has combined Easter and the message in the drawing? 

 

Charles Dance's drawing (thanks for the link to the others, sue) is good too. 

 

The tea towel is quite a find too.  I bet it will soar in price.  I think that's the first time I've ever seen the towel itself.  I think this might put all those doubts to rest about the self portrait. 

 

sue, did the program that showed the Beckett event mention what piece AR read?  I'd be curious to know if he did Play again.

If INTJ doesn't get you set up, I'd be happy to make a video for the site.

Dark Mark, I know exactly what you are talking about in the resemblance!  great minds think alike?!

Alfan, thanks for sharing that! I thought the same thing. Snape is certainly an unforgettable character, most likely because of AR's unique mix of features, voice, etc. Snape certainly gave me a serge in awareness of AR.

I now see AR as the person he is, thanks to all the photos of him with the public over the years. When he is being himself, without the influence of a script on him, he is quite a presence in his own right!

To Sue - thank you for comment. Yes, Neil Gaiman is a writer ("Sandman" etc) whose stuff I am not to crazy about, but Dave McKean, his illustrator, is a genius. I was watching Neil's commentary on "Mirrormask", and just sort of noticed the dynamic resemblance to AR - it's more of a way he carries himself then a photographic thing, although in many pictures he looks a lot like George from RHOPT. He (Gaiman) has a cult following in the same "cerebral hen" type of women. (I hope I do not offend).

Dark Mark, I can't really see a likeness. If anything he reminds me of the guy who played Lupin in Harry Potter. Is he a writer? I think some girls posted him on the Vintage Meat  site a while back and I must say he caught my eye

If someone can tell me how to I would but I don't think I have the necessary programs! I have put it onto a dvd then played it on the pc and made the caps from that. I'll probably post the dvd to Claudia then she can do what she likes with it.

 Ok, this has nothing to do with anything we have been talking about but i was talking to a friend of mine and i mentioned Alan and he said, who, and i said, you know, the guy who plays Hans Gruber. He looked at me blankly so i said ok, the guy who plays Snape. And he said, ohhhhh, that guy, he was Hans in Die Hard? He is so cool as Snape. so i have been doing a little research and do you realize that I think Alan has had a major reserge of popularity since he became Professor Severus Snape in HP and the Philosopher Stone.

 

1989-1999- 17 movies in ten years, one directoral debut, a voice over and two a few plays ( DL, TATEOW, A&C).  

 

Since he has done HP in 2001 he has now done 15 movies in 6 years, directed a play, done two voice overs, done a play in London and NY ( PL ).

 

Just FYI.

Oh and another 4* review from the Financial Times:

 

My Name Is Rachel Corrie, Playhouse Theatre
By Sarah Hemming
Published: April 3 2006 18:09 | Last updated: April 3 2006 18:09

In a sense, this production shouldn't be here. It should be in New York, at the off-Broadway Theater Workshop. But that showing has been withdrawn, so here it is in the West End instead. Good news for London, but this is a piece that should still be seen in New York, whether it ruffles feathers or not.

Rachel Corrie was a 23-year-old American student who joined the International Solidarity Movement in Gaza in 2003. She was run down and killed by an Israeli bulldozer. This piece for theatre (first shown at the Royal Court last April) is composed from her writing C journals, jottings, e-mails C edited and shaped by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman (who also directs). Every word in it is Rachels and so carries the force of authentic experience.

It does not pretend to be impartial C Rachel points out that she has deliberately chosen to help the Palestinian people and it is their perspective she encounters. But the power of the piece arises from its honesty. It presents a shocked, first-hand account of conditions in Gaza, and it offers a portrait of a young woman who left her safe, liberal home to put herself in the line of fire.

Emails from Rachel's parents and friends make us painfully aware of how worried they were. But this is, rightly, a one-woman show, remarkably delivered by Megan Dodds. Dodds superb performance, skillfully shaped by Rickman, fills the theatre, bringing out the intelligence and spirit of her young charge. Rachel can be compassionate, funny and wise, but also naive, bombastic and even infuriating. The last word is given to Rachel herself. The show finishes with a video of her as a 10-year-old, galvanising her schoolmates with a speech about world hunger. We are left with her direct, questioning voice.

I KNEW AR would be there when I couldn't go ! I have watched both Meridian news and South Today this evening ( 6.30pm ). There was  all of 2 seconds mention on the former but some nice shots on South Today. As you can see by the photos already posted, Alan was looking relaxed and gorgeous in a dark grey suit and a glossy grey silk shirt. Felicity Kendall and Anthony Mingella were the only ones who spoke to the reporter. Iwonder how many AR fans were present ? The ticket prices were pretty steep but it was all in a very good cause.

            If I don't have time to post again this side of Easter, may I wish you all a very happy Easter holiday  We are off to Barcelona in a couple of days ( first visit to Spain ! ). Anyone knot of any "Perfume " locations ?

 Hey everyone!  Sorry for my extended absences of late but real life has really been kicking butt lately. 

 

 

A huge belated welcome to dorothkam and any other new people I may have missed.  I hope you will enjoy your time here.

 

Welcome back, NativeMoon (aka SS)!  We've missed you.

 

I was hoping there would be some reports from yesterday's Beckett event.  Does anyone have any news???  Here's an alert from the event.  Not much information but at least its a mention. 

 

Stars turn out for Beckett

 

A STAR-studded cast of stage and screen giants brought a night of drama to Reading.

The A-list stars including Jude Law and Alan Rickman turned up to celebrate the centenary of Irish playwright Samuel Beckett.

Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella was joined by Billie Whitelaw, Barry McGovern, Felicity Kendal, Lee Evans and Rosamund Pike for a charity gala in aid of Macmillan Cancer Relief.

Alfie star Jude Law who worked with Anthony Minghella on the Talented Mr Ripley and Rosamund Pike, star of the Oscar-nominated film Pride and Prejudice, were performing Beckett for the first time in public.

Law opened the evening at the Concert Hall with comedian Evans an old hand at Beckett having performed in a sell-out run of Endgame with the most famous comic excerpt from Waiting for Godot.

Billie Whitelaw, described as Becketts muse, gave stunning readings from Rockaby and Eh Joe.

The Dublin-born playwright penned his play Footfalls for Miss Whitelaw and she created the role of the mouth in his play Not I in which only her mouth was seen on a pitch black stage. Rosamund Pike took on the verbal acrobatics of this demanding role at the Concert Hall performance.

I've been trying to get hold of a copy of The Villa Golitsyn without much luck as it is out of print. However the lady in Ottakers gave me a website that I thought I'd pass on to you.

http://www.abebooks.co.uk/

I ended up ordering it from a bookshop listed on there that is only 20 miles away! But it's worth paying a fiver for the book (including postage) to be delivered to the door rather than driving over and paying parking etc. It is an international site and there were lots of American bookdealers on there too.

I did not expect that the photos I sugggested would be soooo great and funny for all of us!!!I promise that I will find some more funny photos with Alan,cos I am mad of funny pics!!!

I think that Alan lookes annoyed indeed.However he feels that he is noticed and he tries to play even during intermissions,poor being!

If someone is interested you can see photos with me in my other album on photobucket here  http://s62.photobucket.com/albums/h102/Yulia_Ivanova/AR%20in%20Love%20Actually%20intermission/Yulia%20Ivanova/

Lemme draw your attention to the last paragraph:

 

"In London, the response was palpable. Ms. Dodds received a long and ringing ovation, as audience members wiped tears from their cheeks."

 

Thumbs up Alan and Megan!

Alan fan ...I've just emailed Hello re. the inconsistency of still having votes being registered...the Bean fans have added about another 1,000 since I last looked...this is wrong ...what are HELLO doing? Voting should have ended yesterday...I would n't be suprised if this rendered the vote invalid...

Anyway all Alan fans, KEEP VOTING... Will be interesting to see if they respond.... what a total .... UP !

Beth: I'll be looking forward to your Happy Birthday Alan video if/when you get it uploaded - I know these things can be a pain! I'm looking forward to your newest one which I'm downloading now.

 

That is a beautiful big picture, Liana I've never seen it before. With the StLM poster in the background it looks like that premiere? Can't remember what he was wearing in those pics, but he certainly was laughing a lot in them. Obviously very happy among those people.

 

Yes, Yulia, as I've said before - he has universal appeal!

Those are great pictures from Love Actually. In #4 he looks like a kid who needs to go to the potty!  In all fairness, though, we can't see his feet - maybe he has the one on something or maybe he's just cold! In the one where he's looking into the camera, he looks annoyed! "Stop taking pictures of me " he seems to say.

Yulia

Those LA set photos are wonderful! You rock my world! I love Alan's mimics there! =)))

 

Beth

 Love your vid! X-files thing is awesome!

 

And I add this photo here. I guess most of you have seen it, but I luv it soo much that I can't help posting it:

I wonder, what is she saying to him that makes him smile with such a knowing smile?

Maybe she's telling him that half of the Beanie's votes will be deleted, and he's gonna to win?

Hi

This is weird.. I've just checked the Hello site and the site still seems to be registering votes, the number went up when I clicked.. I would have thought the winner would have been in by now...I see Sean is way ahead...do you think they've just continued voting, if not, why havee n,t they put up new candidates for April...I know it's April 1st.. but.... this is not a joke ...anyone enlighten me as to what's happening here?

Yulia, if you made your photobucket account private, we won`t be able to see the pictures unless you link them directly. In my case, it gave me a password request.

Yulia, you can do this : Upload your pictures in the photobucket account that Claudia set up for this guest book. Scroll up and you`ll find the link.

Once you have uploaded your pictures, right click on it (it`s best if you click on the thumbnail image, posting the whole picture slows down the page for readers who have a slow connection. ) and choose "copy" (the options depend on the browser you`re using but it should be something like "copy image") then once you open the "sign guestbook" window, all you have to do is paste the picture there. You can use ctrl+v. 

Or you can simplu copy the url from the photobucket account (you`ll find under the picture you want to post.) 

Hope it helps!
