Issue 155
Women in Hollywood 1999

Issue 154
December 1999
Reviews: Bringing Out The Dead, Cradle Will Rock, The Cider House Rules.
The movies that changed America: From Shampoo to Saving Private Ryan.
Where's Johnny?: Following a string of quirky roles in lackluster films, the elusive Johnny Depp is now focusing on his new baby, his new life in France, and his upcoming turn in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow.
Holiday presence: A wealth of exciting new films hit theaters just in time for Oscar consideration, and Premiere showcase some of their stars, those who shine the brightest: Denzel Washington, Lisa Kudrow, Charlize Theron, Chow Yun-Fat, and Tobey Maguire.
Hell's angels: Robin Tunney may be known for her somber roles in such films as The Craft, but while on a picnic in L.A., the actress-next up in End Of Days-betrays a sunny disposition.
Rocking the house: In his Altmanesque epic Cradle Will Rock, director Tim Robbins presents a lively mosaic of mostly true tales from the 1930s art-meets-politics front, with Orson Welles and Diego Rivera at the barricades.
Three angry men: Premiere investigates the ongoing controversy inside The Insider, Michael Mann's take on big tobacco, CBS, and 60 Minutes.
'Mother' of the year: No longer the enfant terrible, Pedro Almodovar is set to release his calm, bittersweet drama All About My Mother.
First take: Guerrilla marketing; stars get (too) comfortable on Bravo; Johnny Lee Miller meets Jane Austeen; and what a best boy does. Plus: the divine Judi Dench.
Teen days that shook the world: Fifteen years ago, John Hughes had never had a hit, the Brat Pack was unheard of, and Hollywood believed the phrase "teen drama" was an oxymoron. The Breakfast Club changed all that.

Reviews: The Insider, The Limey, Ride With The Devil.
As Kate would have it: From her starting debut in Heavenly Creatures to her Oscar-nominated, world-conquering turn in Titanic, Kate Winslet has kept her own counsel through a spectacular rise to stardom.

King's ransom: 'George and David got so mad at each other that they had to be separated,' Ice Cube says of his Three Kings costar George Clooney and director David O. Russell, who nearly came to blows on the Arizona set.
Making Love's: Director Kenneth Branagh and company (Alicia Silverstone, Matthew Lillard, et al.) break into song on the set of Love's Labour's Lost, one of Shakespeare's lesser-known comedies, which they're adapting into the 1930s-style musical romp, due to open next spring.
The last innocent: A veteran director looks back wistfully at the life of Audrey Hepburn-a great Hollywood star and master manipulator of beauty and feelings, yet a noble, considerate, and stylishly elegant as they come.
The gray '90s: Venerable screenwriter William Goldman explains why the '90s represented the most severe creative drought in film history.
The Straight Story: David Lynch's latest film.
Get happy: Gregg Araki, director of the apocalyptic gorefests Doom Generation and Nowhere, changes gears with his latest film, Splendor-a quirky romance that is positively sweet.
First take: The barely possible Mission: Impossible 2; what actress Hilary Swank knows about Boys; the great American Movie; and Terence Stamp's path from Cockney to The Limey.
Shy, but barely: Shy or not, all actresses know that removing their clothing can help their careers. Here, a B-movie veteran reveals the not-always-bitter truth about appearing naked onscreen.

Diller's Crossing: October Films rose to prominence with its savvy marketing of unusual art films. Yet its very success, ironically, proved to be its undoing.
