Touring Like Rock Stars: #NMFilm 50 to 1 on track to Box Office success

Posted by on March 20, 2014 | 9 comments

OneHeadlightInk-50-to-1-premiere-Kimo-marquee-3

No, I didn’t go to the world premiere of 50 to 1 in Albuquerque, then hang out with the stars all night and bring them with me to 94 Rock this morning (but that would’ve been pretty cool) – it just looks like I did!

Here is this blogette’s little segment on the KZRR 94 Rock Morning Show, including a quick rundown on the premiere:

Starting where it all began en route to the winner’s circle; just like the majestic horse who lifted his New Mexico team to the top of racing’s most coveted contest, the filmmakers and stars behind this big screen adaptation of the triumph are a bunch of tough guys & gals who are taking their little dynamo on a tour that just won’t quit!

On one of their many stops on the first leg of their mega movie tour to discuss their film, tireless producer/director Jim Wilson and star Christian Kane were full of admiration about filming in New Mexico, giving major praise to local crew!

Joined by jockey Calvin Borel in studio, Kane also took a moment to give a very heartfelt thanks to his beloved #Kaniacs!

THE ALBUQUERQUE MUSEUM PRESENTS: EVERYBODY’S NEIGHBOR: VIVIAN VANCE

Posted by on March 18, 2014 | Comments Off

Vivian Vance exhibit in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, NM– So many of us grew up watching I Love Lucy throughout the years, and we probably do our best to catch re-runs on TV whenever we get the chance. There is something about the nostalgia of it all that proves irresistible. But I bet that most of us never knew that one of this famous TV show’s beloved stars was actually an Albuquerque talent.

Everybody’s Neighbor: Vivian Vance features the history and popular culture of vaudeville star and actress Vivian Vance, who appeared regularly at Albuquerque Little Theater (ALT) and the KiMo. Vance, who spent part of her young adult life in Albuquerque, eventually won her most endearing role as Ethel Mertz on the TV situation comedy, I Love Lucy. The exhibition will be on view at the Albuquerque Museum from March 29, 2014 – January 31, 2015.

Vivian Roberta Jones, known as “Viv” to her friends and family, was born in 1909 in Cherryvale, Kansas. As a teenager she decided to pursue acting career, against the wishes of her religious mother, Mae. Vivian’s large family eventually moved to Albuquerque and Vivian and her husband Joe Danneck joined the Joneses. She found a job modeling clothes, but in 1930 she defiantly announced that she had landed a role in the racy vaudeville show, Cushman’s Revue, playing at the KiMo Theater. She traveled with the show, then returned to Albuquerque.

Under the guidance of ALT director Kathryn Kennedy O’Connor, Vivian appeared in the theater’s first two seasons. Convinced that she had potential, O’Connor and the theatre held a benefit in 1932 by selling tickets to The Trial of Mary Dugan. Critics raved, writing, “Whether Vivian Vance can make good in New York will be decided next month, but the Albuquerque actress…showed that she can make good before a hometown audience.” With the proceeds, O’Connor sent Vivian to New York to study under actress Eva Le Gallienne.

Soon Vivian started landing chorus roles, eventually graduating to supporting roles in Hooray for What! and Let’s Face it! with Danny Kaye and Eve Arden. In between productions Vivian returned to Albuquerque. Vivian always felt that she owed a debt of gratitude to the people of Albuquerque for supporting her early career, and returned often to appear at the ALT free of charge. By the early 1940s, Vivian was living in New York but had also purchased a small adobe ranch house in Cubero, west of Albuquerque near Grants.

Vivian then moved to California to work on film and theatre projects. While visiting the La Jolla Playhouse in 1951, Desilu Studios producer Desi Arnaz watched Vivian’s amazing performance as Olive Lashbrook in Voice of the Turtle. Convinced that she was perfect for the role of Ethel Mertz in I Love Lucy, Desi Arnaz brought Vivian into the studio for a surprise introduction to his wife and star of the show, Lucille Ball. Because of Vivian’s good looks, impeccable comedic timing and a street-smart sense of how to play to an audience, she shined throughout the run of I Love Lucy. The 1953 episodes brought her an Emmy® Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, with additional nominations in 1954, 1956, and 1957.

I Love Lucy secured Vivian Vance’s place in television history. After a wondrous career in theater, film and television, the accomplished actress passed away in 1979. Many of her family members still live in New Mexico, and her sister Lou Ann holds local comedy workshops. Their stories, awards, photographs, and memorabilia contribute greatly to the exhibition, celebrating a small-town girl who hit the big-time.

Would you?

Neil-Degrasse-Tyson

How strong is your resolve? Whether conflicted based on race, creed, orientation or other conviction, how many of you would pass on a paying role or job on principal?

At OHI we have many faithful friends who practice their religion openly and fervently. And many more still who hold their beliefs privately. One such friend of the former modus operandi recently posted his beliefs in juxtaposition to the material presented in a New Mexico Film production.

Local actor, Manuel Baca (Bless Me Ultima, Odd Thomas) wrote,”It was no accident Mr DeGrasse Tyson.” God made this. Directed at FOX television series, Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey host, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Arts vs Science

The post made this Blogette wonder if our friend Manuel would have turned down a part in the Santa Fe shot series? But moreover who among us with such a conflict would?

So I have to ask, if you are against narcotics content, sexual content, religious or anti-religious views, racism, politics or other hot button issues that are showcased or “glorified” by your means of employment…

Would you take the role?

Warren-Jeffs-Movie to film in New MexicoGuardianuk

A long planned film project centered on polygamist FLDS Church leader Warren Jeffs could be headed to shoot in New Mexico.

The Lifetime movie will tell the story of how leadership of the polygamist sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was taken-up by then 42 year old Warren Jeffs when his 92 year old father died in 2002. In the events that followed, Warren’s authoritarian leadership and his ever-expanding collection of underage wives began to attract the attention of outside law enforcement agencies, who regarded Warren as a common child molester. The movie will paint the picture of how Warren’s church and his life are ultimately destroyed by the forces of the law.

Production is expected to begin in northern New Mexico this April.
