'How to Dress for Success' by Edith Head with Joe Hyams
This how-to classic offers more than clothing advice
DAILY Design  August 6, 2012, by Anne Harris
"...The latest edition of Edith Head's How to Dress for Success (Abrams) was published last year without much fuss, and somehow, in this office it went straight up on the bookshelf next to Helen Corbitt Cooks for Company. How did we miss the violet linen cover, as soothing as a C Howard Violet Mint?..."

How Costume Designer Edith Head Changed the Look of Hollywood
AFS Cinema spotlights films featuring the Oscar-winner's designs
Screens Column  January 10, 2019, by Jill Morena
"...Edith Head began her long and extraordinary career in the 1920s, mainly under the tutelage and shadow of one of the great Hollywood costume designers, Travis Banton. When she was hired at Paramount, she had zero experience designing clothes and an uneasy proficiency in drawing the human figure..."

Any friend of Edith Head, Algernon Moncrieff, and Vajazzling is a friend of Your Style Avatar
Columns  December 10, 2010, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...TCM'ING I've spent seemingly endless hours watching TCM – a treasure trove of Hollywood fashion. I've been especially focused on designer Edith Head..."

Celebrate Bastille Day in Austin
Parlez-vous français?
DAILY Food  July 13, 2018, by Emily Beyda
"...You’ll need something a little stronger after all that Champagne, so once the races have been run, head over to Péché where, starting at 5pm, they’ll be serving up $5 absinthe cocktails to get you into the jailbreaking spirit. Try a French 75, a supremely refreshing mixture of lemon juice, gin, sugar, and Champagne, or get down to business with a glass of Pernod absinthe..."

Play It Again, Sam
All About Eve (1950)
Screens Story  June 3, 1999
"...Perelman-scripted Monkey Business (their first Hollywood film), which finds the Marxes as stowaways aboard a luxury liner captained by Ben Taggart and featuring a radiant Thelma Todd. Essentially a chase film (with Harpo chasing the girls, natch), New Yorker scribe Perelman's dialogue holds up brilliantly, with enough obscure one-liners to make Dennis Miller's head explode..."

Poison
The Sundance Film Festival, that prestigious enclave of independent film juries, awarded Poison its top dramatic prize this year. But that distinction is hardly enough to thrust a film out...

Film Review  August 30, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The first is “Hero,” the story of seven-year old Richie Beacon who kills his father and then, as reported by his mother, flies off through the upstairs window. The story is shot like a television news report using talking head interviews with Richie's mother, his teachers, classmates and suburbanites next door..."

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers
Film noir's shadowy look and bleak attitude get their clutches into this melodramatic corker from 1946
Screens Review  June 15, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The film opens in 1928, as young and willful Martha Ivers (played by Janis Wilson in this prologue – before the movie skips ahead 18 years and the character blossoms into Barbara Stanwyck) is apprehended after running away from home. She lives in Iverstown with her rich, imperious aunt (Judith Anderson)..."

No Man of Her Own
New on DVD: 'No Man of Her Own'
Screens Story  April 13, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Director Mitchell Leisen, who is best known for his romantic comedies, was a Hollywood workhorse, and his films bear the stamp of his first jobs in the industry: dress designing and set decoration. (Edith Head does the costumes for No Man of Her Own.) Yet his comedies have little of the wit and wisdom seen in the films of such Paramount colleagues as Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder..."

Look Ma, No Wrapping
DVD boxed sets, no assembly required
Screens Story  December 13, 2002, by Marrit Ingman
"...Sikov also provides the feature-length audio commentary, which sounds a little stiff, like he's reading an abstract from the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, but is informative. The edition also salutes composer Franz Waxman and costume designer Edith Head (though Bob Mackie's backhanded compliments don't do her any favors) and includes an interactive map of the film's locations that is interesting enough the first time around..."

Discus Maximus
New and nifty dvds
Screens Story  December 7, 2001, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Not only do these two films, both from 1941, reaffirm that digital technology has restored the "glorious" to black and white, they also leave no doubt that Criterion is the Blue Note of DVD labels. Springloaded with special features, The Lady Eve buttresses Barbara Stanwyck's command performance as the reptile in Henry Fonda's ophidian Garden of Eden with a revealing commentary track, Peter Bogdanovich's intro, a complete radio broadcast featuring Stanwyck and Ray Milland, Edith Head's costume design notes, the trailer, and dozens of production stills, candid photos, and studio memos..."

They Might Be Giants
Record Review
Music Review  September 21, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...The concept of a Mink Car may sound unwieldy, but this one finds the band in high gear and not planning to slow down any time soon. To top things off, the disc includes rehashes of the better tracks ("Older," "She Thinks She's Edith Head") from the band's recent Internet-only CD, which should overjoy hard-core fans -- or enrage them, depending on whether or not they'd already managed to burn the free versions..."

"...“Is it serious?” LG asks. “He’s not bad looking, and he’s still alive, which puts him two points ahead of most men of our generation,” replies Mary..."

Holy Motors
Holy Motors; hot damn. This French firecracker is set to detonate.

Film Review  December 7, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...An amazing actor known for his transformative appearance from film to film, it is appropriate that Lavant plays Oscar, who adopts at least 10 different personas throughout Holy Motors. We first see him as a banker leaving his ultramodern home and entering the back of a limo to head to work..."

Culture Club
Dances inspired by three legendary women cross cultures and generations
Arts Story  February 27, 2009, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Bravo: Yeah, the same with me. I had said that I wanted to talk about someone special, and in the back of my head, there's always been this thing about Edith Piaf's music but also the very difficult life that she lived and how, in spite of everything, she continued with enormous love and passion..."

Across the Universe
Gearing up for a new national tour of her hit show The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, Lily Tomlin took a few minutes to talk about connectedness -- her connectedness with The Search, with audiences, and with Austin.
Arts Story  September 17, 1999, by Robert Faires
"...AC: However loose it gets, however far you may feel like you as a performer may be needing to take it to give it that best shot, most audiences are right there with you. They want to see the crowning, they want to see the head coming out and the thing being born...."

Tea Party Versus Black Voters
Right wing activist claims GOP doesn't want minority voters
DAILY News  June 5, 2013, by Richard Whittaker
"...The head-shaking quote came from Ken Emanuelson, a Tea Party activist with deep connections to the Dallas County Republican Party. He was leading a meeting of Battlefield Dallas County, the GOP's response to Battleground Texas, the new Democratic group aiming at the grand target of turning Texas blue..."
