THINK PINK...just as Steven Spielberg has John Williams, and Robert Zemeckis has Alan Silvestri, Blake Edwards had his go-to guy, Henry Mancini. Hank scored all of Edwards' entries in the wonderful and still-funny Pink Panther series, starring the late, great Peter Sellers. In reviews, Regina puts on the 3D glasses for the long-awaited Toy Story 3. It's "J" Day for Jared with Josh Brolin in Jonah Hex.
MORE JEFF FOR YA...Three movies still to go in the "We Love Jeff Bridges" series, weekends at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. It's the first major film retrospective for the charming, versatile, and prolific Oscar winner! Each of the nine movies, spanning Jeff's 40-year career, is being introduced by a member of The Houston Film Critics Society. Coming up on Friday June 11 is The Fisher King, co-starring Robin Williams. June 18 brings us the rarely-seen Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, with Clint Eastwood! Wrapping things up on June 25 is Crazy Heart, which won Jeff that Oscar, plus other awards earlier this year (including the coveted Best Actor prize at the Critics Choice Movie Awards, pictured right; I was present for that!). All movies start at 7pm. Tickets available at the Museum, 1001 Bissonnet. Parking is free in the lot across the street; enter by the Main St. door. More information at www.mfah.org/films. —Regina
