The Créole was launched on 8 June 1940 at Le Havre. To avoid capture by the advancing German armies, the Créole, still unfinished, was towed to La Pallice, and on 18 June she was taken in tow from La Pallice to Swansea. On 1 July 1940, she was taken in British custody during Operation Catapult.
The Créole was completed after the war and commissioned in the French Navy on 1 April 1949. Her silhouette was departed from the pre-war design, with a modified sail and a schnorchel.
Welcome To Haiti: Creole 101 is the fifth studio album released by Haitian rapper Wyclef Jean. The album was released on October 5, 2004. The album is a contrast to Jean's previous albums, as many of the track are Caribbean-influenced and sung in different languages. President was the only single released from the album. The album's track listing differs between the United States and Europe. The album's lyrics have political themes.
The company bears some resemblance to the largest Irish cinema chain, the Ward Anderson group, in that it is a family owned business run by members of two families, in this case the O'Gorman family (who ran the Ormonde Cinema in Stillorgan) and the Spurling family who are also involved in rural cinemas, albeit having closed one (Enniscorthy) due to being in relative proximity to a Movies@ site.
After complaining about the decline of the British film industry, the trio purchase Pinetree Studios (for £25) in the hope of making some good films. They then fire all the directors, whom they consider to be making films which are either "very boring or extremely pretentious" and decide to make a film themselves.
Their attempt to remake Macbeth with less violence and more family interest is a complete failure, and leads to the three Goodies falling out with each other and attempting to make their own films, separately. Tim wants to make a Biblical epic — while Graeme wants to make a violent Western, and Bill wants to make a silent black and white comedy (believing that to do this he has to paint everything monochrome, and not talk). Bill comments: "Buster Keaton must have spent three weeks painting the whole town black and white. And then a ruddy great building falls on him, and he doesn't make a sound."
"Movies" is a song by Alien Ant Farm, released as the first single from their album Anthology in 2001, then re-released to a larger audience after the success of "Smooth Criminal". Though it only peaked at No. 18 on the US Modern Rock chart, it remained on the chart for thirty-two weeks, five weeks longer than "Smooth Criminal" which hit No. 1.
Lyrically ambiguous, the song deals with images of young, independent kids salvaging relationships, inherent power struggles, finally letting go, and then (possible) reconciliation, practicing concepts of love, despair, and bargaining that adults have difficulty dealing with, and the resolution and “drama’ so well-written that it’d be worthy of a movie. “You won’t cry/I won’t scream” may be describing promises made in order to continue, or may be describing the final goodbye and never seeing each other again.
The original single version had two tracks, Wish, and Movies (the album version).
There were three music videos made for this single, one, which was shot before the success of "Smooth Criminal" features a 'behind the scenes' style shooting of the video, with grips and lighting crew interrupting shots to fix equipment, while the band performs before a tacky Hollywood Hill backdrop.
Presley, mainly at the behest of his rapacious manager Colonel Tom Parker, made over 30 movies, and while the early ones were ropey, the likes of Jailhouse Rock and KingCreole were arthouse masterpieces next to the dross Elvis turned up in the late 1960s... Which is probably just as well, because the scripts of Elvis movies were usually unspeakable....
The Beatles and Elvis Presley arguably influenced pop music more than any other musical acts ... Referring to Presley's acting career, Jeffrey said, "We show a scene from 'KingCreole,' a really dramatic, good-acting scene from that movie, and I've talked to people after the show is over who say, 'Wow, I didn't know he could act like that.'" ... ....
They don't just serve popcorn at Movie Tavern ... The theater contains a full-service restaurant and bar that patrons can use before, after or even instead of a movie, and the theater serves patrons everything from snacks to full meals during movies ... Soon after being seated and prior to the movie, a friendly server explained the drill....
Although the practice waned, it continued even into the 1950s and '60s and was immortalized in the 1958 New Orleans-set film "KingCreole," starring Elvis Presley. The movie opens with a long sequence featuring the languorous cries of the peddlers. As the Crescent City modernized, however, street vendors morphed into grocery stores ...Arthur 'Mr ... Lounge....
