The 35th annual St. Louis Jewish Book Festival opened with Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein.

Fierstein also gave away personalized t-shirts from his shows Newsies and Kinky Boots, and signed copies of his books and CDs. More than 900 fans attended the event.
The work of legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head can be seen in classic movies such as Roman Holiday, To Catch A Thief and Funny Face, work by the likes of Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and others. With more than eight Academy Awards and 35 nominations under her belt, it’s no wonder Head inspired actress, writer and artistic director Susan Claassen to pen a one-woman play in her honor. In December, Claassen will bring A Conversation With Edith Head to St. Louis. Claassen spoke with Ladue News about creating the show and what it’s like to portray the great Ms. Head.
Among the controllable risk factors for heart disease, cholesterol is a primary indicator of cardiovascular health. For many adults, elevated LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is one of the first wake-up calls that lifestyle modification and/or medication is needed to help keep cardiovascular risk in check.
If you need a break from your Oscar checklist, or simply prefer to watch some of the early contenders from the comfort of your couch, here are the latest releases on DVD (and most popular downloads). It’s a good week for action fans. For your convenience, I’ve divided them into two categories: Worth a Watch and Must Miss.
Story: In February 1964 the ‘British Invasion’ of pop music climaxed with the wildly popular quartet from Liverpool known as The Beatles appearing ‘live’ on American television on The Ed Sullivan Show. For the next six years, rock music’s most famous band churned out hit after memorable hit.
Story: John, a professor, is riding high these days. He’s been nominated for tenure at the university where he teaches. Confident that he’ll gain that security, he and his wife have found a new home and are in the process of closing on it.

Congratulations to hotel general manager Alper Oztok and his team!
You don’t need to be told once again how dangerous smoking is. Yet, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that approximately one in five (American) adults smokes, and that half of them who continue to smoke will die from smoking-related causes.

Story: Five months after the outbreak of World War I, a number of British, French and German troops positioned in trenches alongside “no man’s land” stopped their fighting for a brief but poignant period on Christmas Eve, 1914.
Exercise is not just about losing weight, and it’s not just about looking good. For women, exercise is a key ingredient of strong bones, flexible joints, resilient muscles, improved mood, stress relief and reduced risk of many major diseases.
We can’t control our age or genetics, but women can do plenty to control their risk of cardiovascular disease, and that’s important considering that heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death for men and women alike. A heart-healthy diet is among the most influential factors in reducing risk.
The National Institutes of Health estimates that about 12 percent of the American population suffer from migraine headaches, which are marked by throbbing or pulsing pain, often on one side of the head, sensitivity to light and sound, and possible nausea. And if you’re female, you’re two to three times more likely to experience a migraine.
Story: Elderly solicitor Mr. Kipps has rented a theater to read a biographical story about his encounter with a deadly specter decades before. His delivery, though, leaves much to be desired, something a young actor at the theater repeatedly observes in rather brusque fashion.
OK. So it’s no secret that Hollywood is a shining example of environmentalism. I mean, when it comes to reuse and recycle, the film industry is unrivaled. If a movie’s a hit, they make it another hit and then another. Let’s see if we can hit a 10-figure, worldwide box-office gross without burning a single creative calorie. The film industry will squeeze every dollar out of a good movie down to the last action figure. It’s the soul-less version of using all the parts of the buffalo.
It seems Oscar is taking a nap this week, so it might be a good time to hit the couch with a good download. Here are the new releases and top rentals:
The eleventh month is also the eleventh hour for award consideration. While one would think an Oscar-caliber movie would stay with a viewer, contenders seem to want their film fresh in voters’ minds. So with a few brain breaks for popcorn premieres November should prove to be a heady cinematic month.
Nearly every review of this film describes it as a rehashing of '80s action movies. Frankly, that is precisely what sent me running to the box office. After the abysmal summer of blockbusters, maybe Hollywood needs a refresher course. If anything isn’t reinventing the wheel, it’s this genre. I’m easy to please. Give me a respectable plot, some good explosions and a clever quip and I’m happy. Well, if there is a school for action movies, Stallone and Schwarzenegger should teach the master class.

Story: Four candidates for the 332nd Fighter Group, better known as the Tuskegee Airmen, meet at the military school in Tuskegee, Alabama where they train to become fighter pilots during World War II. These candidates, though, are black, and the challenge to earn their stripes in flight school is exacerbated with racism, both blatant and subtle, throughout their training.
Why are people so rude? Who told them they have the right to pry into a newlywed couple’s business? This idea has had a buzz on the Internet lately, so I recently asked five of my newlywed couples about some of the rudest questions/comments directed at them since their wedding.
