today’s birthday by Miles X. Logan

Anton Chekhov, 1860

Although he was a physician by trade, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov is generally considered to be the greatest short story writer who ever lived. “Medicine is my lawful wife”, he once said, “and literature is my mistress.” Chekhov was born and raised in Southern Europe. His father, Pavel, the son of a serf, was a religious man but an abusive father. His mother, Yevgeniya, though her husband suppressed her high-spirits, had a vivid imagination and would entertain Anton and his five siblings with magical stories culled from her imagination. Eventually the family went bankrupt and had to flee to avoid debtor’s prison; Chekhov, forced to fend for himself, nevertheless attended university and entered medical school. He began writing as a way to supplement his income. Gradually, Chekhov worked his way up the ranks and received an offer to write for the largest newspaper in St. Petersburg. His first book, a collection of short stories, won the Pushkin Prize, the highest literary honor in Russia. The success prompted Chekhov to author his first play, Ivanov. Chekhov became somewhat wealthy from his writing, and devoted his medical practice to the poor, purchasing medications for them out of his own pocket. His next play, The Seagull, was roundly panned by critics and audiences alike. Eventually, in the hands of a gifted director, the many nuances and subtleties in the work made it an audience favorite at the Moscow Art Theatre. Though stricken with tuberculosis, Chekhov followed that play with three more masterpieces: Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard. Like his short stories, the characters in Chekhov’s plays often resembled key people in his life – his domineering father, his beloved but unhappy mother, his siblings, and the many lovers he took – Chekhov was regarded as theatre’s most eligible bachelor before finally marrying late in life. He returned to short story writing while terminally ill, producing “The Lady with the Dog” which Nabokov called “one of the greatest stories ever written.” Chekhov’s work didn’t become widely popular until years after his death. The great modern day method

actors from Strasberg to Brando to DeNiro all found the genius of Chekhov was often between the lines, with mere gestures and pauses telling much of his tales. This Day in History: 1845: Edgar Allen Poe publishes The Raven 1944: 245 German bombers attack London 1958: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward get married.

Reel Deal

up to Allen’s recent masterpiece, Midnight In Paris, because the sheer exuberance in that film is replaced by the grim reality that pervades this effort.

By Miles X. Logan

New To Theaters Gimme Shelter (PG-13) Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) gets a starring vehicle - unfortunately, it’s a Ford Edsel. Supposedly based on a true story about a pregnant teenager living on the streets, it is cliché-driven, heavy handed, and hard to sit through. Some veteran actors, specifically James Earl Jones and Brendan Fraser, sleepwalk through their roles. It’s a clunker. Coming Soon The Monument Men (PG-13) Assorted museum curators and other assorted nerds are sent behind Nazi lines to rescue precious works of art in this film, supposedly based on a true story. George Clooney penned the screenplay, directs and

stars, and he has attracted a first rate cast including Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Jean Dujardin. Originally pegged as an Oscar contender, the film’s release date was pushed back. There have been few screenings, meaning most critics haven’t seen it yet. That’s usually a bad sign. Still, Clooney has a history of delivering, so we’ll all know soon enough – Monument Men opens next week.

New On DVD Blue Jasmine * Woody Allen mines the effects a Madoff-like individual (Alec Baldwin) has on his family and friends when the scam is uncovered. The film centers

on the ruined wife, Cate Blanchett, who spirals into a world of alcohol and medication in an attempt to survive. Blanchett turns in a worldclass performance that has already garnered her numerous accolades and awards. Sally Hawkins, playing her half-sister from the wrong side of the tracks, earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Comedians Lewis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay are surprisingly good. Allen is nominated for Best Screenplay. This is a troubling but profound film, but it doesn’t measure

Now Playing G.B.F.( R ) Three high school girls vie for attention by courting a gay boy to be their best friend (that would be the G.B.F.). Really. Add a star if you are a brain dead kid who might actually relate to the characters. I, Frankenstein (R) Yes, we really need another Frankenstein movie. This one is set in the near future wherein gargoyles and other assorted characters roam around searching for immortality. It’s so ridiculous it’s almost enjoyable – but not quite.

Springs School News The Journalism Club has expanded every week, with 25 students participating in this afterschool activity. Guided by Sue Ellen O’Connor and Amy Turner, students write articles which are then submitted to local newspapers for publication. So far Marissa Harry and Madison Lappin have made the 1000 Word Club. Coached by Ana Jacobs, the girls’ volleyball team ended on a winning note, winning eight of their nine games. The top servers were Ashley Rea, Nicole Realmuto, Carolina Ortega and Sophia Ledda, with spiking strength from Isabella Aguero and Maddie Schenck. Students in Katherine Farmer’s eighth grade social studies classes have completed projects on the Industrial Revolution with cardboard prototypes, ranging from Edison’s home phonograph and Ford’s Model T to early cameras and typewriters, on display in the school library. As part of their business letter writing unit seventh graders wrote to over 70 celebrities, including popular athletes, writers, and entertainers. High Tide, the school’s literary magazine, will publish a range of genres across the curriculum and grades. Tracey Frazier and Ryan Scala are collecting submissions with the help of art teacher Colleen McGowan, student artwork will also be highlighted. The Courtyard Club may be dormant in the winter months, but the birds still need to eat. The students raise money for the birdseed by maintaining a water machine at school. Wild Bird Crossing provides a discount on the birdseed and the students break the ice in the water bath for their “regular customers.” The students in classrooms around the courtyard have the opportunity to continue bird watching all year. First graders have been studying air and weather in Sean Knight’s science classes, using simple meteorological instruments to observe and monitor change, including parachutes, pinwheels, and kites to observe the action of wind. In addition they have used weather instruments such as a thermometer, anemometer and wind vane to graph their observations of local weather conditions.
