Writer-director-producer John Hughes died of a heart attack Thursday in New York City. He was 59.
Five Great John Hughes Moments... 3. The She's Having A Baby montage. The uneven 1988 romance-drama-comedy, starring Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern, was packed with wild pendulum swings in tone, including frequent lapses into fantasy. But late in the movie comes this sucker-punch of a montage, featuring Bacon fretting helplessly as the doctors work on safely delivering his new baby, accompanied by the Kate Bush song "This Woman's Work" — which has since landed in countless TV montages, not one of them nearly as effective. It's got a few stumbles (could have done without that carefully lit single tear, I think), but it works. And it's unabashedly sentimental in a way that has nothing to do with the writing of clever, arch dialogue for teenagers; having a big, hokey heart did a lot to cut the effect of that dialogue, and nowhere is that big, hokey heart more on display than here. www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2009/08/five_great_john_hughes_moments.html
Ireland argues copyright of James Joyce OUT-LAW News, 02/06/2004 The Irish government has stepped into a row between the Irish National Library and the estate of James Joyce, which was threatening to disrupt a festival to celebrate the centenary of the Bloomsday – the day depicted in Joyce's novel Ulysses... The threats have been taken very seriously, as Stephen Joyce has a reputation for strongly enforcing his rights in his grandfather's estate and, with just over two weeks to go before the centennial, the Irish government has stepped into the breach. The difficulty relates to an EU Directive of 1993, which extended the length of copyright protection for most works to 70 years from the date of death of the author and, for corporations, to 70 years from the start of the year in which the work was created. Prior to the Directive, copyright protection lasted for only 50 years. For the Joyce estate, it expired in 1991. www.out-law.com/page-4588
So does this mean that KaTe could release the original edition of The Sensual World single in 2011? ...
Depends on whether the Joyce estate did anything to reassert their copyright in 1993. (I'm not sure about Irish law but certainly under UK law any copyright that had already expired had to apply to be covered by the extension.) The article seems to suggest that they didn't although there wouldn't be much point in them kicking up a fuss if that were the case. If they didn't then she could do it now.
Yes, wouldn't it be fun if KaTe re-released TSW next year with the original version of Molly Bloom's speech set to music! After all, with Stephen Joyce unable to continue lawsuits and legal action, there is bound to be a flood of Joycean projects and activities.
