    PHILADELPHIA — Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties. During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters. The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund, allowed the Clinton campaign to seek contributions of hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend extravagant...

Some carried signs like, "Bernie would end fracking," and the now defunct "Bernie for...

    The Hillary Clinton propaganda machine has been hard at work leading up to her presumptive presidential nomination. Entertainment media have been littered with a multitude of TV shows, movies, children’s books, and even songs inspired by the Democratic candidate. It’s typical for the media to get involved in a campaign during an election cycle. But in the case of Hillary Clinton, the media have been laying the groundwork for her ascendance to the Presidency since the early 1990s. Beginning with an episode in the ‘90s featuring President Hillary Clinton, audiences have been treated to Hillary-inspired female presidents and politicians, fictional...

    Marni Nixon, the American cinema’s most unsung singer, died on Sunday in New York. She was 86. The cause was breast cancer, said Randy Banner, a student and friend. Classically trained, Ms. Nixon was throughout the 1950s and ’60s the unseen — and usually uncredited — singing voice of the stars in a spate of celebrated Hollywood films. She dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” among many others. Starting as a teenager in the late 1940s and continuing for the next two decades, Ms. Nixon...

The diverted funds paid for luxury properties in New York and California, a $35 million private jet and expensive paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet, according to federal government complaints that demand the recovery and forfeiture of the ill-gotten assets.

He was 81. The lawyer Martin Garbus, who was a childhood friend of Mr. Marshall’s, said he died after a series of strokes. It would be difficult to overstate Mr. Marshall’s effect on American entertainment. His work in network television and Hollywood movies fattened the archive...

And director Paul Greengrass has revealed that in the finished film, the actor, 45, has just 25 lines of dialogue.

Debuting in The Loud House — a cartoon about Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with 10 sisters — the scene features a friend coming for a stayover with Lincoln. Lincoln and his chum, Clyde McBride, have been counting down the time to the sleepover, so perhaps that’s why Lincoln announces: “Time to make history!” — before he opens the door to reveal Clyde and his two dads. Owned by Viacom Media Network, Nickelodeon targets children ages 2 to 17....

    Last year Michigan lawmakers wisely did away with what was once the most generous film incentive program in the nation. Mackinac Center research showed that despite giving film producers half a billion dollars from 2007 to 2013, there were no signs that the film industry in Michigan was actually growing. Essentially, the program amounted to a taxpayer handout to a select few movie production studios. And now there’s new research that suggests these programs aren’t benefiting other states’ economies either. The evidence comes from an article published in the American Review of Public Administration written by Michael Thom, a professor...

If you recognize his name at all, it's probably because you remember that he was the guy who won the Best Picture and Best Director Oscars for The Deer Hunter in 1979. Cimino directed just seven feature films in 42 years—a pace that makes Terrence Malick look like a workhorse. But he was so much more than just a lazy director. He was one of the great American hucksters.

    After weeks of indecision, ABC announced on May 12 that it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom "The Real O'Neals," which is loosely based on the childhood of zealously gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then, Noah Galvin, the 22-year-old gay actor who plays the gay son, Kenny, gave an interview to New York Magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC is considering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for season 2. An executive producer who spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take...

    FORT HUACHUCA — Even the stars were a little starstruck. It’s one thing to portray the military in Hollywood, as the cast of the blockbuster “Independence Day” did 20 years ago in a story that featured people of Earth banding together to topple alien invaders. Much of the cast has regrouped, with some new cast members, for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” the much anticipated sequel that hits theaters this Thursday. But to visit the troops on their turf and see what they do to defend the U.S. is quite another thing. Two stars from the new film, Jessie T. Usher and...

    Supergirl is putting a fresh (ahem) spin on the stunt-casting trope. The now-CW drama has tapped erstwhile Wonder Woman Lynda Carter to recur in Season 2 as the President of the United States, TVLine has learned. Last March, Supergirl EP Greg Berlanti revealed that he tried — and failed — to lasso Carter for a Season 1 guest stint, telling reporters he had a “perfect role” in mind for the TV icon, but they “couldn’t work out her schedule.” He called it the “biggest disappointment for me this entire season.” Berlanti later confirmed that the role was the “female president of the United States.”...

    King locally hosted “Romper Room” from 1966 to 1976. The program aired worldwide with different hosts in each locale. During the show, King played learning games with children and urged them to be “Do Bees” who behaved well, not “Don't Bees” who played in the street or failed to clean their plates. Each episode ended with King holding up a mirror-like frame and looking through it to name child viewers.
