Reviewed by: Hollywood's Italian American Filmmakers: Capra, Scorsese, Savoca, Coppola, and Tarantino by Jonathan J. Cavallero Marianne Holdzkom Jonathan J. Cavallero Hollywood's Italian American Filmmakers: Capra, Scorsese, Savoca, Coppola, and Tarantino University of Illinois Press, 2011. 212 Pages; $ 75.00 hardcover; $27.00 paperback The films of Frank Capra, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola are staples within American popular culture. These filmmakers and others like them have had great success in depicting family life and the American Dream on film. Yet even when such filmmakers are focusing on Italian-American themes, moviegoers often forget that the directors are themselves Italian Americans. In his book, Jonathan Cavallero not only reminds readers of the ethnicity of these directors, but he examines in great detail their contributions to how this ethnic group has been portrayed on film. In studying the movies of five Italian-American filmmakers, Capra, Scorsese, Coppola, Nancy Savoca and Quentin Tarantino, Cavallero traces the evolution of the depiction of Italian-Americans on film from what he terms Capra's "denial" of ethnicity to Tarantino's "performance" of ethnicity. In the process, he provides historians and students of film with a valuable tool for understanding the place of media in the study of history.

BEVERLY HILLS, California (CNN) -- Rosie O'Donnell isn't showing any signs of slowing down her charitable work. The daytime talk show diva flew to California last week to accept an award from Vistas for Blind Children and the Institute for Families of Blind Children. According to USA Today, O'Donnell not only wrote the groups a $50,000 check, but she gave back her award so that it could be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Funnyman Leslie Nielsen was the lucky winner, reportedly paying $30,000 for the statuette.
