"Kindness, tolerance, integrity, modesty, generosity - these are attributes that events permit us. They are our holiday moods, and we are as proud of them as of the fine clothes we have hung away to wear on occasions." #BenHecht #holidays #christmas
Maybe my favorite kids’ book, written by Ben Hecht (screenwriter of Notorious, The Front Page, His Gal Friday and a zillion others) and illustrated by the brilliant artist, printmaker, caricaturist Peggy Bacon. Totally weird and surreal (for 1947 when it was published, and now) with abandoned alley cat heroes, evil cat bullies, spirit cats, tension, snarky wiseguy dialogue, chase scenes - a B-Movie, Film Noir kids book! With an ending that is truly surreal. I insisted my mother read it to me every night so that explains ... a lot. If you can track it down it’s worth the ride. #cats #catsofinstagram #cats_of_instagram #alkeycats #herocat #cathero #benhecht #peggybacon #illustration #bookstorecats #bookstorecat #screenwriters #Notorious #hisgalfriday #noir

Edward Everett Horton died September 29, 1970 in Los Angeles of cancer. He was born March 18, 1886 & graduated from Boys' High School in Brooklyn. He matriculated at Oberlin & Columbia University where he joined the drama club. He sang in a Staten Island opera company before acting under the auspices of Louis Mann. He made his Broadway debut in June 1910 & acted in Philadelphia & Portland, Maine stock companies. He moved to Los Angeles where he managed his own stock company while made silent films starting in the early 1920s. He made several full length silent films along with short films before making his 1st talking picture, The Terror, in 1928. Many of his early talkies were lost. He freelanced through the 1930s & 1940s in films for all the major studios; director Ernst Lubitsch cast him in several of his films. This still was from Lubitsch's adaptation of Noël Coward's Design for Living (1933). Horton continued to act on the stage, most famously in Springtime for Henry, a play he'd perform over 3,000 times. Television work filled his 1950s & 1960s. His last film was Cold Turkey (1971). Horton was a confirmed bachelor whose longtime companion was actor Gavin Gordon. He and his manager brother George lived in an estate in the San Fernando Valley along with their siblings and mother. #edwardeveretthorton #ernstlubitsch #noëlcoward #benhecht #designforliving #paramountpictures #classichollywood #menwithstyle #gay #confirmedbachelor #suit #doubletake #latergram
Now known as "Mansards-on-the-Lake," the William W. Dingee House is a Second Empire-style design that dates from 1867. Dingee was the inventor of the horse-power thresher and other implements that helped promote mechanization of the farm. . Other famous occupants of the home included circus performer Dan Castello, who was the onetime partner of P.T. Barnum, and writer Ben Hecht, who lived here with his parents in the early 1900s. Hecht wrote about his childhood in Racine in the book "A Child Of The Century." . . #mansardmonday #secondempire #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #theamericanhome #benhecht #1860s #historicdistrict #racinewi
1948’s “Cry of the City” pits two handsome gents of the genre (Richard Conte, Victor Mature) against each other. Conte is Martin Rome, a double-crossing killer. Mature is Candella, a cop and Rome’s childhood friend. Their cordial banter can’t hide the contempt they have for the other’s profession. The cop chases the killer throughout while trying to find Rome’s soft spot and key to finding the killer: Tina. The 1948 screenplay was co-written by Ben Hecht. Look for Shelley Winters as one of Rome’s dupes and Hope Emerson as Rome’s masseuse and jewelry thief accomplice. The opening and closing song - “Street Scene” - composed by Al Newman is also in “The Dark Corner” as well as “Where the Sidewalk Ends” among other noir favorites. #filmnoir #cryofthecity #1948 #richardconte #benhecht #victormature #cop #shelleywinters #hopeemerson #murderer #italians #oldhollywood #oldhollywoodmovies #classicmovies #cinema #blackandwhitemovies

It might be no surprise that the first-ever gangster movie, Underworld, was written by a Chicago newspaperman. What is perhaps more surprising is that the screenplay won Hecht the first-ever Academy Award for best writing, original story (now best screenplay), presented in 1929 #oscar #award #benhecht #chicagohistory #bestscreenplay #first

The first Oscar for writing - Ben Hecht’s 1928 Academy Award @newberrylibrary in #chicago #illinois #il #il #travel #literature #academyaward #oscar #oscars #ampas #benhecht
𓁼 #WallaceSmith (1889 - 1937) one of my favorite illustrators who actually went to jail for the illustrations he did for #FantaziusMallare written by #BenHecht ( an incredible author & screenwriter on #hisgirlfriday ,Spellbound -uncredited for #GoneWithTheWind & my personal favorite of his Whirlpool + a ton more ) . To give you an idea of the tone of this delightfully devilish book here is the preface by Hecht : ≋ “THIS dark and wayward book is affectionately dedicated to my enemies—to the curious ones who take fanatic pride in disliking me; to the baffling ones who remain enthusiastically ignorant of my existence; to the moral ones upon whom Beauty exercises a lascivious and corrupting influence; to the moral ones who have relentlessly chased God out of their bedrooms; to the moral ones who cringe before Nature, who flatten themselves upon prayer rugs, who shut their eyes, stuff their ears, bind, gag and truss themselves and offer their mutilations to the idiot God they have invented (the Devil take them, I grow bored with laughing at them); to the anointed ones who identify their paranoic symptoms as virtues, who build altars upon complexes; to the anointed ones who have slain themselves and who stagger proudly into graves (God deliver Himself from their caress!); to the religious ones who wage bloody and tireless wars upon all who do not share their fear of life (Ah, what is God but a despairing refutation of Man?); to the solemn and successful ones who gesture with courteous disdain from the depth of their ornamental coffins (we are all cadavers but let us refrain from congratulating each other too courteously on the fact)” 😳 WOW Right?! #nihilism #contemporaryart #fantasyillustration #classicliterature #contemporaryart #goth #gothicstyle #vintageillustration
Ordered Duns on Bond today. @tidforpodd (Swedish 007 podcast) talked about the Ben Hecht @007 script and I realised I haven’t heard much about it at all before.

His Girl Friday (1940) War of the words 29 March 2016 Usually I have issues with IMDb short summaries, but this time they nailed it. "A newspaper editor uses every trick in the book to keep his ace reporter ex-wife from remarrying." "His Girl Friday" is a screwball comedy, and one of the most hilarious I have ever seen. The screenplay is excellent and Howard Hawks has done a great job directing it. Cary Grant and beautiful Rosalind Russell have sparkling chemistry and the way they perform jokes is so natural and believable. But to fully enjoy this movie you have to be fluent in English. Watching it with subtitles simply won't do it, because the essence of this film's greatness is in its frantic pace. Plot twists are good, but the breathtakingly fast overlapping dialogue, simultaneous conversations and rapid-fire delivery of word gags, sarcastic insults, sexual innuendos and in-jokes are what ensured this movie's high place in the film history. 8,5/10 #hisgirlfriday #comedy #romance #howardhawks #benhecht #carygrant #rosalindrussell #ralphbellamy #genelockhart #reporter #newspaper #exwife #marriage #battleofthesexes #screwball #hilarious #jokes #fastpace #frantic #plottwist #wordgames #sarcastic #insults #sexualinnuendo #cultcomedy
THE FRONT PAGE. Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, 1928. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Hecht to members of his family on the front endpaper: "To Peter, Esther, Patty Hecht / From Ben Hecht / Love." Hecht's rarest and most important play, basis for three key films: in 1931 with Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien, in 1974 with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, and most importantly, the classic screwball comedy "His Girl Friday," with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in 1940.

THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM // Otto Preminger, 1955
As part of Gallery 37’s Downtown Summer Program, the mural “The Meaning of Chicago, Call to Creators” was made in 2004 by artist Stefan Johanson. The images are quintessential Chicago. From left to right a black and white picture of Studs Terkel. Surrounding him are ‘The Jungle’ from Upton Sinclair and ‘1001 Afternoons in Chicago’ from Ben Hecht, next to Carl Sandburg’s opening from his poem ‘Chicago.’ Nearby is author Gwendolyn Brooks who smiles as a yellow and black skyscraper bends towards her, cradling puffy blue and white clouds sitting under the Chicago skyline. You can see it at the Millennium Park Harris Theater Parking Lobby at 205 East Randolph. #MuralMonday #art #chicagowriters #chicagopoetry #MeaningOfChicagoCallToCreators #artist #stefanjohanson #muralist #publicart #chicagoart #books  #HarrisTheater #parkinggarage #studsterkel #writers #gwendolynbrooks #benhecht #carlsandburg #chicago #poetry #gallery37 📷@yolandanews

Great moments in the history of the world. John Barrymore and Carole Lombard in Howard Hawk's "Twentieth Century" (1934). "Verbal gambits go rat-a-tat-tat, acid jibes ricochet every which way, and only consummate hams like (Oscar) Jaffe (You grey rat! I close the iron door on you") and Lilly Garland make the existential cut. Barrymore and Lombard are simply incandescent." --Kathleen Murphy #johnbarrymore #carolelombard #filmclassics #screwballcomedy #howardhawks #benhecht #theatricality

THE FRONT PAGE // Lewis Milestone, 1931
Time is a circus, always packing up and moving away. 📸 @sfbikerboy
Anecdote I heard at a dinner party hosted by former Bernardo Bertolucci associates: When Anthony Quinn was brought to Italy to shoot Ulysses, there was an unexplained delay in getting the film underway. Tiring of hearing one excuse after another, Quinn finally confronted producers Dino De Laurentiis and Carlo Ponti saying he would return to the states if he didn't get the real story. They decided to 'come clean' and confessed that they had commissioned screenwriter Ben Hecht who turned in a great screenplay but adapted the wrong 'Ulysses'--the novel by James Joyce rather than Homer's epic. Not wanting to make the error public, the producers were stalling until screenwriters were finishing their adaptation of the correct Ulysses. Seeing an opportunity, Quinn said he'd remain in Italy on one condition: the producers would produce another film for Quinn to star in by an Italian director he had met while the script was being finished. Who is he?, they wanted to know. Some fellow named Fellini was the answer. That a$$h@(%?, they exclaimed. Quinn was insistent and, over a barrel, the producers relented. Thus, La Strada was made while finishing touches were applied to Ulysses script. Remember which of the two films won an Oscar? #film #filmmaking #filmmaker #hollywood #ulysses #benhecht #anthonyquinn #lastrada #anecdote
