DR. ZHIVAGO

Here’s another of director David Lean’s opulent period epics: From 1965, his lush telling of the famous Russian romantic novel, starring Omar Sharif as Dr. Yuri Andreyevich Zhivago, and Julie Christie as Lara Antipova – neither of whom, at this date, has been confirmed to be in that meeting with the President’s son at Trump Tower. Julie Christie, in this film, is especially and memorably alluring.

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20. (Paperback will be available September 5th, here.)

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
