This is a quiet place, except for the surf on the beach, which is a curving arc of sand between two rock headlands. Much of the beach at San Pancho backs up to private houses, which is good in that it will keep away major development.

Now when Hollywood is reeling from a much-deserved diversity scandal, it's a good time to remember the historical role of Hollywood in civil rights. Hollywood was ahead of the country as a whole during the civil rights era of the 1950s.

Because of his war pictures and Westerns, he will always be perceived by some as the heir to John Wayne, but, whatever one thinks of American Sniper, Eastwood is much more subtle than some jingoistic zealot.

American Sniper Review: Bradley Cooper's Real Breaking Point Sheds Light On Who Really Pulled The Trigger

Mad! That was my reaction to this stellar work! Clint Eastwood is the director of American Sniper and he too has balanced his career on the simple premise that men, even the best of them, like to fight for justice, live their convictions and face their enemies with a moral imperative and a gun.

Ray Bradbury was a self-described "emotionalist," a passionate man and writer who worked instinctually and rarely intellectually, and who produced a unique body of work. In essays that soared on wings he built himself he urged humanity to never give up the ghost.

My head a little feverish, my heart pumping, I felt the intensity of emotion reverberate throughout my body. It's incredible that a few 14-minute films can provoke such a powerful reaction.

Last week, I caught up with Kathleen Turner to talk about going from Broadway to movies and back again, crawling up Steve Martin's leg to get a part, Warren Beatty pursuing her and why she took on her latest role in The Perfect Family.

It does not seem quite possible that Jack Nicholson could be turning 75 today. He seems ageless, particularly when you revisit his best films. And that's just what we should all do to mark the occasion.

Is That All There Is? Rugged Indvidualism

It's a good thing that, when push comes to shove, we're really not rugged individualists. I'm thinking that it's almost time for us to accept who we are.

Is "High-Def" Technology Ruining the Look of Classic Films?

This 63-year-old feature looked almost as if it had been shot last week. I was intensely aware of Moira Shearer's heavy make-up and could literally see Anton Walbrook's pores. It was fascinating, hypnotic, but also more than a little distracting.

Finney cares a great deal about his work, but very little about publicity. Nominated five times for an Oscar, he has never once attended the ceremony.

To paraphrase a famous quote: "Hilary -- I've seen you act, and I've seen Faye Dunaway act, and Miss Duff -- you're no Faye Dunaway." This truth is of course self-evident if you watch Faye in her prime.

The Heist Picture

John Farr | Posted 06.26.2013 | Entertainment

Great heist movies work by tying us to the unfortunate characters who populate them, and investing us in the outcome of their attempts to reach the same pot of gold so many of us chase.

Film Noir, at Its Noirest

There are plenty of films out there that make us hopeful about life and living. Film noir is a guilty pleasure where we witness the denizens of society's bottom rungs stamping on each other's feet for a higher, safer position.

Perhaps his clean-cut, boyish image obscured my ability to recognize the astonishing talent he possessed from the start. Regardless, I could see it now: Jeff Bridges has always been a lot more than a pretty face.
