Carrie Fisher's Personal Star Wars Scripts Go Up for Auction
Carrie Fisher's hand annotated Star Wars scripts are going up for auction during a three- day Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds personal property action on October 7th through the 9th in Los Angeles, California. Profiles in History is in charge of the auctions and they expect the scripts to fetch some decent money, so if you are interested in any of these, they aren't going to go for cheap. These are important pieces of the Star Wars legacy and will be a worthy addition for any collector.

Fisher was known for taking her pencil out and crossing out some of the clunkier dialogue in the script and replacing it with her own witty dialogue. That fact is especially evident in her personal The Empire Strikes Back script, which has over 1,000 words handwritten by the actress in it. There are actually four scripts going up for auction, as she had two different ones for Empire.

The Week in Star Wars – Carrie Fisher obituary, Rogue One passes $700 million, original ending revealed and more

On December 23rd, Carrie Fisher boarded an aeroplane from London to Los Angeles and suffered from a heart attack. She had just completed the European tour of her book. Four days later, she passed away at the age of 60.

Fisher was raised into the Hollywood industry. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the star of screen having found fame at the age of 19 in Singin’ in the Rain and her father was pop star Eddie Fisher. She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.

As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama,

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’
Next month over on streaming giant Netflix offers up a giant selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Oscar contender to…not so much — and we’ve picked seven (well, really 11) that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Footloose” (available September 1)

If you’ve never experienced the original “Footloose” — no, not the one starring Miles Teller, though he is quite serviceable in a charming role — do yourself a favor and check out Herbert Ross’ 1984 classic. Yes, the concept of a town outlawing dancing is bizarre and outdated, but Ross and his cast (including Kevin Bacon in the kind of star-making role that’s so rare these days) really sell the concept, thanks to some serious drama and hard-earned emotion. But there is also dancing! It’s joyous and gymnastic and pure,

Our favourite moments from Stand By Me

It's hard to believe that it has been thirty years since Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern embarked on a journey to find the dead body of a local boy. What sounded like a morbid adventure actually resulted in one of the most touching films about friendship to ever grace the screen. The chemistry of the four young actors, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Wil Wheaton and Jerry O'Connell, was undeniable--these boys really felt like best friends, and the film is still the best example of male bonding that we've ever seen.

We can thank writer Stephen King for that, as the horror novelist wrote the short story "The Body" that inspired Rob Reiner's film. King has stated that Stand By Me is the best adaptation ever made of his work, and we'd have to agree.

Ed Harris Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Ed Harris Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
No, Ed Harris, did not throw a chair at Marcia Gay Harden while filming “Pollock,” he wants you to know.

“I didn’t throw it at her,” he says of the Hollywood urban myth. “I smashed it on the ground. She wasn’t quite getting to the point that she needed to and we had a really good relationship and it just got her adrenaline flowing and helped her out a little bit.”

Whether it was the flying furniture that prodded her along or his directorial savvy, Harris’ instinct was spot-on. The actor-cum-helmer of the 2000 biopic helped to propel Harden toward an Oscar for her supporting role as Lee Krasner, the acclaimed painter and long-suffering wife of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, who tragically died in a drunken driving accident. Harris, who will receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 13, the same day his latest film “Run All Night

Naked Therapist Offers Naked Therapy, Boner Forgiveness

Sarah White, a 24-year-old ‘psychology buff,’ is currently offering naked therapy sessions for New Yorkers. While I enjoy a naked lady as much as the next character from Milk Money, I’m slightly skeptical — here’s Ms. White’s SEXplanation (typo): “For men especially, who are less likely than women to go to therapy, it is more interesting, more enticing, more exciting,” said White. “It’s a more inspiring approach to therapy.” Ehhh…I think a more accurate statement would be that same quote just ending at “exciting.” Naked people is just a more exciting thing than therapy. It’d be like someone showing NFL Games during therapy and being like “Men tend to enjoy this more than conventional therapy, so it’s a better form of therapy.” She then gets nakeder (quotewise): “Freud used free association,” she said. “I use nakedness.” That’s not a comparison, that
