Project Spotlight

Dawn (2013, short, drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"I just finished my first piece for RSA Black Dog, which is Ridley Scott's commercial music video company. I directed a 20-minute short with amazing actors. It was a really amazing project to do, and I felt really comfortable doing it, more so than I ever have acting."

Rose McGowan has been attending the 2011 Turner Classic Movies Festival these past few days in Hollywood. Rose, of course, co-hosted The Essentials in 2008 and is an avid classic film enthusiast. On the opening day of the fest, she attended the screening of An American in Paris. On April 30, she helped honor former Phantoms co-star Peter O’Toole at a hand and footprints ceremony. Miss McGowan looked gorgeous and happy at both events!

Courtesy of Laura (aka Rose McGowan Fans channel at YouTube), a few videos have been added to the media archive.

Tonight Rose will introduce a screening of A Place in the Sun at the festival. Best of luck, Rose!

As time allows, I will be going through all the recorded episodes of 2008’s The Essentials I have saved and add captures and clips to the site. Unfortunately I don’t have all the episodes recorded and some have quality issues, but I have a good bit to add to the site so at least that is something to look forward to. 🙂

For today I have added four clips. Rose discusses A Face in the Crowd, Fanny, Modern Times and Woman of the Year in these. Screencaps are also up for viewing.

According to TV Guide, Alec Baldwin is next to inherit the coveted Essentials spot from actress Rose McGowan. It is presumed Rose’s stint will end at the end of January 2009. (Although we have no confirmation if Rose is appearing in all of these episodes leading up).

By the way, we get e-mails a lot about The Essential’s coverage. I would like to apologize for not having Rose’s episodes up sooner. This is my fault and I’m very sorry as I know you guys wanna see this. As mentioned before I got incredibly busy these past few months, topped with personal & pc problems and was unable to make these kind of updates. I do however have several of Rose’s episodes, atleast 20 I’d say for sure! Unfortunately I couldn’t get some episodes sadly. But I’m working on capping & clipping a few when possible and will update when I can! Possibly some will be up in a few days!

Here is the clip from last week’s The Essentials. Rose McGowan and Robert Osbourne discuss Paper Moon (1973) from Peter Bogdanovich. Tatum O’Neal won an Oscar at the age of 10 for this. A bit of trivia, Tatum’s role is regarded to be the most substantial role ever nominated as a supporting performance. She is onscreen for nearly all of the film’s running time.

Finally I can bring you clips of the past four episodes of The Essentials! I appologize for the delay. I have been busy, had computer problems, you name it! But nonetheless here they are… most of them atleast. Unfortunately because of my computer problems two episodes did not record fully. (Episode The Great Escape cut off before the film ended so we miss the last discussion, and vice versa for the All About Eve ep). I really am sorry about this! Atleast we can be grateful something recorded from each of these episodes so it’s not too much we missed. Anyways enjoy the clips. Caps and projects pages to come soon.

Coverage from the third episode of The Essentials have been added. Rose discusses 1952’s The Bad and The Beautiful, looking nothing less than stunning in a look similiar to last week’s. They showed a brief spot before the episode which had new footage from an upcoming ep so I capped that as well. A little late, but enjoy none the less.
