Legal Lessons From 'Jersey Boys' Copyright Infringement Case

I first saw the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys in mid-July 06' -- not late December, back in 63'. A tale about blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks becoming one of the biggest pop music sensations of all time is a plot that just writes itself -- or does it?

Say whatever else you want to about 2014, here's one thing I know for sure. It had 365 days. And since new movies opened on screens across the USA on a great many of those days, I feel compelled to consider the year in films.

The Midtown Men Tell It Like It Is... Was... Will Be (Part I)

Pamela Glasner | Posted 01.14.2015 | Entertainment

The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'phenomenon' as an occurrence, perceived through the senses, the cause or explanation of which is in question. I cannot imagine a more fitting description for The Midtown Men and the exhilaration which both precedes and follows their every public appearance.

The Great Songwriter And Producer Bob Crewe Dies At 82

Charles Alexander | Posted 11.12.2014 | Entertainment
Charles Alexander

Crewe, one of the most successful songwriters and producers in pop-music history, died on Thursday at 82 after a long illness. It's a personal loss for me, because I got to know Crewe a bit when I helped produce and write liner notes for a box set of Four Seasons' hits in 2007.

First Nighter: 'Piece of My Heart: The Bert Berns Story' Works Piecemeal

David Finkle | Posted 09.20.2014 | Arts
David Finkle

Perhaps an argument could be made that the songs are so strong they represent emotions at moments of great joy or stress, delight or disappointment. But it's not a very persuasive argument. The more convincing contention is that Berns was a songwriter who wanted to produce as many commercial songs as he could and knew that powerful love songs were the most obvious way to go.

OK, I didn't want to see Jersey Boys, the play or movie. It just seemed like something my mom would have loved, and since I don't have one Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons song in my music library, I thought, meh. Well, smack me on the forehead and call me an idiot.

Kumba is what you think about when you see Clint Eastwood's movie version of Jersey Boys. Everyone but Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen) who talks about T.S. Eliot's "objective correlative" is from the neighborhood and that's the problem

Joseph Russo is an actor portraying an actor. He has a big presence on screen in Jersey Boys. Even when he's just standing in the background, he's in character, fiddling with his jaw or doing something that makes you take notice.

I'm going to remember the f-bombs. I'm going to remember the lyrics until the day I die. I'm going to remember the feeling, the energy and the fire ignited by every scene; no matter spoken or sung. I am going to remember it the way I need to, just like everybody else.

Did any sentimental considerations sway my decision to invest in Jersey Boys? Well, every summer as a kid, I played at the Jersey Shore. When I first met Frankie Valli, I told him that whenever I hear him sing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" I still recall the summery coconut scent of Coppertone wafting across the boardwalk.

Week in Film: Third Person, Jersey Boys and More

Marshall Fine | Posted 08.18.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Having never seen the stage version of the jukebox musical on which it was based (in its 10th year on Broadway), I still felt that I was getting a representative feel for that show, as filtered through Eastwood's flinty consciousness. But that doesn't make it a good movie.
