Andrew Sarris Andrew Sarris (October 31, 1928 – June 20, 2012) was an American film critic, a leading proponent of the auteur theory of criticism. Life and career Sarris was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Greek immigrant parents, Themis (née Katavolos) and George Andrew Sarris, and grew up in Ozone Park, Queens. After attending John Adams High School in South Ozone Park (where he overlapped with Jimmy Breslin), he graduated from Columbia University in 1951 and subsequently served for three years in the Army Signal Corps before moving to Paris for a year, where he befriended Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut. Upon returning to New York, Sarris began to write for Film Culture; in 1960, his first review for The Village Voice—a laudatory review of Psycho—was published. He is generally credited with popularizing the auteur theory in the United States of America and coining the term in his 1962 essay, "Notes on the Auteur Theory," which critics writing in Cahiers du Cinéma had inspired. Sarris wrot ...
Here's a gem from living legend columnist Jimmy Breslin 'Son of Sam: Fear in Queens' Jimmy Breslin New York Daily News May 15th, 1977 [In the summer of 1977, a serial killer terrorized New York City. Initially known as the .44 Killer and then as the Son of Sam, the murderer communicated with Daily News columnist Jimmy Breslin through a series of letters. In the end, David Berkowitz was caught and sentenced to six consecutive life terms in prison.] At night, on the way home, there was a stop at the 109th Precinct, which is housed in an antiseptic brick building that removes a part of the terror and all of the glamour of being in a police station. On the wall of an upstairs office was a color photo of a gun, a black gun with a brown handle, and some brass cartridges placed against a sky-blue background. The printing on the picture said this was New York crime lab Case No. 771663. The gun is a .44-caliber Bulldog. Somewhere on the other side of the closed metal Venetian blinds, out in the night-empty neighbo ...
It's the birthday of Jimmy Breslin (books by this author), born in Jamaica, New York (1930). He wrote The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight (1969) and The Short Sweet Dream of Eduardo Gutiérrez (2002). His latest book is Branch Rickey (2011), about Brooklyn Dodgers manager Branch Rickey and his efforts to integrate baseball in the '40s by introducing Jackie Robinson to the major leagues. The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist says working in newsrooms is quiet nowadays — no one smokes or drinks. He says that writers used to go to the bar and listen to the old-timers tell stories, but now "they all go to health clubs and then go home. They're in fantastic health, but they wish they were in the bar, and their wives wish they were in the bar, too."

Nelson, Michael Named to Irish American Hall of Fame By BENJAMIN HOFFMAN Barton Silverman/The New York Times Jeff Nelson, a former Yankees reliever, was among six elected to the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame this week.Ireland, a country more associated with soccer than America’s pastime of baseball, has nonetheless produced 48 major leaguers over the years according to Baseball-Reference, placing it just below Japan and tied with Panama for ninth most of any country. When you include the descendants of Irish immigrants, the number swells far greater and to honor their influence on the game, Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant created the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008. The 2012 class was announced on Tuesday, and unsurprisingly it features more than one inductee with roots in New York baseball. Gene Michael, the former Yankees General Manager, and Jeff Nelson, a Yankees reliever, made the cut, as did Jimmy Breslin who famously chronicled the Mets in the book “Can’t Anybody Here Play T ...
