Chimes at Midnight (aka Falstaff) is a 1965 film directed by Orson Welles based around the character of Sir John Falstaff in Shakespeare. The script contains text from five Shakespeare plays: primarily Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2, but also Richard II, Henry V, and The Merry Wives of Windsor. The film's narration, spoken by Ralph Richardson, is taken from the chronicler Holinshed. The film was nominated (in 1968) for a BAFTA film award for Welles as Best Foreign Actor. At the Cannes Film Festival Welles was nominated (in 1966) for the Golden Palm Award and won the 20th Anniversary Prize and the Technical Grand Prize. In Spain it won (in 1966) the Citizens Writers Circle Award for Best Film. Welles held this film in high regard and considered it along with The Trial his best work, he said in 1982 "If I wanted to get into heaven on the basis of one movie, that's the one I'd offer up". Many critics, including Peter Bogdanovich and Jonathan Rosenbaum, also consider it Welles's finest work. The scene depicting the Battle of Shrewsbury has been particularly admired, serving as an inspiration for movies like Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan. Due to complications concerning the film's ownership, Chimes at Midnight remains unavailable in the United States. It is most readily available as an import DVD from Brazil.

Ziyi Zhang (Chinese: 章子怡; pinyin: Zhāng Zǐyí; Wade-Giles: Chang Tzu-yi; born February 9, 1979) is a Chinese film actress and singer. Zhang is coined by the media as one of the Four Young Dan actresses (四大花旦) in the Film Industry in China, along with Zhao Wei, Xu Jinglei, and Zhou Xun. With a string of Chinese and international hits to her name, she has worked with renowned directors such as Zhang Yimou, Ang Lee, Wong Kar-Wai, Chen Kaige, Tsui Hark, Lou Ye, Seijun Suzuki, Feng Xiaogang and Rob Marshall. At the age of 19, Zhang was offered her first role in Zhang Yimou's The Road Home, which won the Silver Bear award in the 2000 Berlin Film Festival. Zhang further rose to fame due to her role as the headstrong Jen (Chinese version: Yu Jiao Long) in the phenomenally successful Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for which she won several awards in the West, such as Chicago Film Critics Association Awards, Toronto Film Critics Association Awards and Independent Spirit Awards. Zhang's first appearance in an American movie was in Rush Hour 2, but because she didn't speak English at the time, Jackie Chan had to interpret everything the director said to her. In the movie, her character's name, "Hu Li", is translated from Mandarin Chinese to "Fox". Zhang then appeared in Hero, with her early mentor Zhang Yimou, which was a huge success in the English-speaking world and nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe award. Her next film was the avant-garde drama Purple Butterfly by Lou Ye, which competed at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. Zhang went back to the martial arts genre with House of Flying Daggers (十面埋伏), which earned her a Best Actress nomination from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. In 2046, directed by Wong Kar-wai, starring many of the best-known Chinese actors and actresses, Zhang was the female lead and won the Hong Kong Film Critics' Best Actress Award and the Hong Kong Film Academy's Best Actress Award. Showing her whimsical musical tap-dancing side, Zhang starred in Princess Raccoon, directed by Japanese legend Seijun Suzuki, who was honored at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. In 2005, Zhang landed the lead role of Sayuri in the film adaptation of the international bestseller Memoirs of a Geisha. There was a slight controversy in Japan about a Chinese woman portraying a Japanese Geisha. For the film, she reunited with her 2046 co-star Gong Li and with her Crouching Tiger co-star Michelle Yeoh. For the role, Zhang received a 2006 Golden Globe Award nomination, a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination and a BAFTA nomination. Zhang has also been known to sing, and was featured on the House of Flying Daggers soundtrack with her own musical rendition of the ancient Chinese poem, Jia Rén Qu (佳人曲, The Beauty Song). The song was also featured in two scenes in the film. On June 27, 2005, it was announced that Zhang had accepted an invitation to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), placing her among the ranks of those able to vote on the Academy Awards. In May 2006, Zhang became the youngest member to sit on the jury of the Cannes Film Festival. In the fall of 2006, Zhang played Empress Wan in The Banquet (Yè Yàn 夜宴), a film set in the Tang Dynasty. Zhang provided the voice of Karai in the TMNT movie that was released on March 23, 2007. She later starred in Forever Enthralled (Mei Lanfang) (2008) and appeared in The Horsemen (2009) with Dennis Quaid. Ziyi Zhang was recently announced that she will be the main character in "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan". At the same time, she will also be the producer for this movie.

This years most awaited movie-Kites, starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori, was launched at the ongoing Cannes film festival. The entire cast and crew including Hrithiks family barring his wife-Suzanne were there to support him. The rumors of Hrithik having an affair with his co-star Barbara Mori have been in the news for quite some time now. However, Hrithik seemed unperturbed by his wifes absence. He was way to busy promoting his mega-budget film. Apparently the movie is made on a very high budget sparing no expenses. Everything including the technical crew of the film is the best. According to the producer of the film Rakesh Roshan the movie has a global appeal to it. It is a love story between an Indian boy and a Mexican girl. They both share the same dream of earning big bucks in this big bad world.

Cleopatra" started pre-production in 1958 and it was released in 1963. And it is a film that urge everyone to see. Prepare to spend an evening at home. It is a very long but interesting film (despite what critics say). It was said to be the most expensive movie that 20th Century Fox made...and Dame Elizabeth Taylor walked away with seven million dollars. She discovered how to be a shrewd businesswoman. Maybe an attribute that Mike Todd had instilled in her. But there is a new generation of Elizabeth Taylor fame who believe that her career started with "Cleopatra". I receive messages from them every day. They do not know the history that Elizabeth Taylor had had pre 1963. And it was quite a history. This new generation of Elizabeth Taylor fans know her from her HIV/AIDS Fundraising, which is a cause that Elizabeth was put on this Earth to fight. She readily states that at the conception of AIDS, she (as Hollywood) thought that it was a horrible disease, killing lovely people that she had known and worked with. With the help of Dr.Mathilde Krim, they created AmFAR (The American Foundation of AIDs Research) in 1985. Elizabeth served as Chairwoman of the Board for AmFar for many years. She went on to created fundraising events at the Cannes Film Festival in 1993...again, raising millions of dollars every year. Her own foundation sends money to AIDS Service Organizations all over the world for direct client/patient care. Dame Elizabeth Taylor was Queen of The Nile, but now she is an angel, here, on Earth. Please remember to donate if you can. By Richard Bassett, *2008 The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation c/o Derrick Lee Reback Lee & Company, Inc. 1990 South Bundy Drive, #700 LA, Ca, 90025 Thank you!
