Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - November 11, 2017

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
November 11, 2017

 




MoMA is presenting You Are Now One of Us: Film at Club 57 Through Feb 2018. La decima vittima (The 10th Victim), by Elio Petri, Italy, 1965, stars Marcello Mastroianni, a popular Italian  film actor, who made many wonderful films, but this one is not one of them, and Ursula Andress, a voluptuous actress. It is a story about hunting and killing the victim. It takes place in the future, where the winner/survivor appears on television in a commercial and wins a million dollars. The film is silly, but the two stars are pleasant to watch.

 

Also, in the same series is Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, by Russ Meyer, USA, 1970, about a three female Rock band and their male manager who graduate from high school, and head to Hollywood to find fame and fortune. Instead they find drugs, sex, violence and bloody murders. There are many attractive young ladies in the film, but the plot is ridiculous, and most of the scenes are unbelievable.

The 53rd Street Library presented Sunset Boulevard, by Billy Wilder, USA, 1950. It is, without doubt, one of the finest films that Hollywood produced. The tale about a silent film star (Gloria Swanson in a remarkable performance), living in retirement and wanting to return to the screen, is totally absorbing and realistic. The dialogue is intelligent, and the acting by the entire cast, which includes William Holden, Erich von Stroheim and Nancy Olson, is superb. What a joy to see a brilliant film! Why can't today's filmmakers learn to follow the example of wonderful filmmakers of the past.

 

Columbus Library, 742 10th Avenue, presented Destry Rides Again, by George Marshall, USA, 1939, a delightful western, starring Marlene Dietrich and James Stewart. The two stars are magnificent, with a host of fine supporting players. The plot is the usual about a new sheriff who comes to a small wild  town and restores it to law and order. Dietrich sings one of her memorable songs The Boys in the Back Room and Stewart, as always, is charming. The dialogue is witty. I enjoyed every minute watching it.

 

Film Forum presented a press preview of Song of Granite, by Pat Collins, Ireland/Canada, 2017. It is the story of Irish folk singer Joe Heaney, 1919-1984, acted by three actors at various stages of his life. Colm Seoighe is young Joe Heaney. We see him singing in gaelic in school, dancing outside his home, assisting his father catching lobsters and roaming the countryside of picturesque Carna, County Galway. These scenes are the highlight of the film. Micheal O Chonfhaola is Joe in his 40s. He abandoned his wife and children to go to Glasgow, and then to New York, where he found employment as a doorman. He attended the Newport Folk Festival in 1966, where his fame began as a singer of sean nos which mean old style. It's sung in gaelic, and recalls ancient history and myths about ancient times in Ireland. Throughout the film, we listen to these traditional songs. Macdara O Farharta is Joe in his 60s being interviewed twice and returning to Carna, because he does not want to die among strangers. Although the press notes say he died in Seattle. It's  the official entry from Ireland for the 2018 Academy Awards.

The Metropolitan Museum presented a press preview of 
Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer, November 13, 2017-February 12, 2018. It is a superb exhibition of mainly his drawings, some of his copies of revered masters like Masaccio. There are 133 drawings and three sculptures by the the magnificent artist. The highlight is the ceiling at The Sistine Chapel shown in a brightly lit one room, which is a beautiful copy of the original. It will save you a visit to Rome. Do not miss this exhibition.
 

Monday night is always a frustrating night. I was invited to four galas. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend three. It began at Cipriani 42nd Street at the Prostate Cancer Foundation's 2017 New York Dinner, featuring host Whoopi Goldberg, and musical performance by Jennifer Hudson, honoring Peter and Laurie Grauer.

Then off to The Plaza, where the Drama League honored Steve Martin (photo below) at their benefit gala with a Musical Celebration of Broadway. A host of stars performed like Jenn Colella, Lea DeLaria, JudithLight, and many others too numerous to name.The third gala was held at one of my favorite restaurants, Chez Josephine,  414 West 42nd St. It began with a reception for Cause Celebrecelebrating 10 years of Causes, Celebrities and Charity, founded by Susan Charlotte, and then the guests attended a performance next door at the Clurman Theatre at Theater Row. They returned to the restaurant for a delicious dinner, with a performance by Leonardo and Olga Suarez Paz, who danced tangos and Leonardo sang and played the violin. The entertainment followed with Carole Shelley performing a humorous monologue, written by Christopher Durang. Among the guests, besides those mentioned, were Danny Aiello, Michael Citriniti, Patrick Pacheco and KT Sullivan. It was a the conclusion of three delightful galas.
 

Another night, another gala. My wife and I attended the Pan Asian Repertory 41st Season Benefit Dinner: Art & Action Salutes to honorees Ron Nakahara, Andrea Louie and in memoriam Edward Sakamoto. It began with cocktails and appetizers, followed by a marvelous dinner of Peking Duck, Jumbo Shrimp with Vegetables, T-bone Steak, Crispy Chicken, Lobster with Ginger and Scallion, Chinese Broccoli in Garlic Sauce, Fried Rice, E-Fu Noodle, Red Bean Soup and Fruit. An 8-year-old Olina Ige did a hula dance as a Welcome to the guests. She was adorable and received a tumultuous ovation.. She and her proud parents sat at our table. I have attended the plays of this remarkable company since its inception 40 years ago, and I only admit to being 33-years of age. It is one of the finest Off-Broadway companies in New York. I congratulated my favorite Artistic Producing Director Tisa Chang (photo below) on her magnificent accomplishments.

 

The Metropolitan Club is one of the finest clubs in New York. My wife and I were invited to the New England Society in the City of New York's 212th Annual Dinner Dance there. The NES was founded on May 6, 1805, and on this night, they presented the Reginald T. Townsend Award to Ian and Shep Murray of vineyard vines products, and the J.P. Morgan Medal. Also, Emily Better, Carolyn Johnson and ZePei "Andy" Ma received the 2017 NES Scholarships to study at three New England Universities. At a cocktail reception in the Grand Hall, and the viewing of the Silent Auction in an adjoining room, we met Anna Bulkot, the 99th President, the Dinner Dance Co-Chairs Mary H. Latimer-Chung and Harry Chung. We, then, entered the dining room for a delicious dinner accompanied by fine wines. During dinner, we danced to the music of the Alex Donner Orchestra. All the guests were charming. The gentlemen wore black or white tie, and the ladies elegant gowns. It was one of the loveliest evening of the season.
 

I received a copy of from my dear friend, the publicist David SalidorEat Like a Rock Star: More Than 100 Recipes from Rock & Roll's Greatest, by Mark Bego, with an introduction by Mary Wilson of The Supremes, by Skyhorse Publishing, 2017. There is a brief summary of each Rock Star's life with wonderful photographs. The recipes contain Breakfast & Brunch, Lunch: Soup & Salads. Hors d'oeuvres, Meat, Fish & Seafood, Pasta, Poultry, Vegetables & Sides, Desserts and Cocktails. There is a full page color photo with each recipe. Mark Bego is the biographer of over 62 books about stars like Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel and other popular singers.  I have met him many times, and he is not only a brilliant writer, but also a charming chap. Get this book immediately. It will give you a desire to sample the mouth watering dishes, accompanied by delicious cocktails. I enjoyed every page of this coffee table book. Columbus Library, 742 10th Avenue,
