He’s a hard working character actor that you’re constantly seeing in films and television series. Each time you see him, you say, “Oh yeah. I love that guy! He’s hilarious!” But who is that guy, with such a high demand? Stephen Tobolowsky has been “that guy” in hundreds of films, television series, commercials and plays. TV audiences have enjoyed him as a doctor, a school principal, nuisance neighbor, sex offender, judge, priest, Ku Klux Klan leader, an awkward television producer — and entirely too many more roles to mention. He is also a director, author, theatrical talent, National Public Radio personality and a Dallas native. When you least expect it, his name shows up on the opening credits, and you might say something like, “Oh, he’s in this too. Yay!” Tobolowsky’s appeared

It is a banner time to be in the flag business. “This is our Christmastime, “ Denise Lucas, owner of The Flag Store at 2116 N. Haskell Ave., said. “From Memorial Day to Flag Day to the Fourth of July to Labor Day, we are very busy.” Lucas runs the familyowned business with her daughter Sabrina Gonzales. They are the third owners of a business that can be traced back to 1932. “We get a lot of repeat business from Dallas,” Lucas said. “A lot of people just walk right in.” “Buying a flag is about touch and feel,” Gonzales said.

In addition to a bustling time with Flag Day on Saturday, June 14, The Flag Store is catering to the 32 countries representing teams in the 2014 FIFA World Cup which begins on Friday, June 13. They have a display of the flags divided into the eight team groupings, from Algeria to Uruguay. “We just ran out of Switzerland,” Lucas said. “We will have them tomorrow.” Flags representing the World Cup countries are $3.50 each, and go down to $2.25 each when purchased by the dozen.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

FINANCE

Job search tips for new grads By Jason Alderman To the roughly 1.6 million college graduates in the class of 2014: You have my heartiest congratulations — and my sympathies. I graduated during the early 1990s recession when finding a decent job was very difficult, so I have an inkling of the challenges many of you now face. Although the job-search technology available has changed considerably since then, as someone who is now on the other side of screening candidates, I can tell you many of the underlying principles for waging a successful search remain the same. Let me share a few: Stand out from the crowd. You’ll probably be competing with dozens, if not hundreds, of applicants for most jobs, so: • Tailor your resume and cover letter to highlight education, skills and experience relevant to the position – check out Monster.com’s Resume Center for writing tips. • If your work history is brief, play up education highlights, volunteer or internship positions, awards, organizational memberships, etc. • Have strong references — and make sure they're willing to speak or write a letter of recommendation on your behalf. • Proofread everything carefully and ask a trusted acquaintance to review. Before applying, research the company to make sure it’s a good fit. If you do get called for

JUNE 13 - JUNE 19, 2014

an interview, kick it up a notch: • Make sure you understand the company’s products, services and customer base. • Examine their business structure and how your potential department fits in. • Research competitors so you understand the business environment in which they operate. • Investigate their social media presence for clues on how they interact with customers. Employers are forced to do more with fewer resources, so they seek employees who are focused, polished and willing to work hard. I’ve spoken to numerous hiring managers who say many candidates they see don’t convey those qualities. A few tips: • Google yourself. Review your social media footprint and remove photos or other materials that portray you unprofessionally. • Show up — on time — for interviews dressed appropriately, with copies of your resume, work samples and any requested materials. • Be prepared to answer a barrage of questions about yourself and how you’d react in different situations. (Monster has a great list of potential interview questions.) • Make sure you can back up any claims made on your resume or during interviews. Register with job search engines where you can apply for jobs and make yourself

visible to potential employers and recruiters. Popular sites include Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com. LinkedIn, AfterCollege.com and LinkUp. com. Landing a good job can take months or even years, so be persistent and tap all available resources. For example: • Contact your school’s career office to see which services are still available to you as a recent graduate. Many will help by reviewing your resume, conducting practice interviews and connecting you with alumni volunteers willing to meet for informational interviews. • Build and maintain a profile on LinkedIn. Many employers and recruiters go there first when looking for suitable candidates. Also, join LinkedIn groups for your field of interest and partake in their discussions. • Contact and join professional organizations in your field. Weddles.com provides links to thousands of professional organizations. • Many companies use automated tracking systems to scan incoming resumes for skills and job-appropriate key words before a human will ever see them. Make sure your resume includes these key words — provided your experience is relevant, of course. Bottom line: You worked hard to earn your degree. Unfortunately, you may have to work equally hard to get your career going, so take advantage of the available tools — and good luck.

profile and turn the city into a vacation destination? The same argument against Dallas traffic and temperature can be made for Washington DC. New York City, San Diego and Philadelphia have already backed out of consideration and I think are better for it. I love Dallas, but the Summer Olympics have lost some cache in today’s violent world and alleged ethical issues by the International Olympic Committee. I don’t want to take a chance of something very bad happening here. “This is a chance to showcase our city,” Matt Wood, leader of the Dallas Olympic efforts, told The New York Times. Didn’t the original “Dallas” television show do that in the 1980s? What about college bowl games, the NBA All Star Game and Super Bowl? Certainly the bowl games and NBA All Star Game are not on the global scale, but they went off without a hitch and improved the area’s profile. The Super Bowl was maligned by the Great Ice Storm of 2011 and brought about the joke “When will Jerry Jones get another Super Bowl? When hell freezes over!” So put me in the minority that doesn’t want to take a chance on a Summer Olympics in Dallas. Give it to Boston and let the USOC eat chowder.

No crime in Dallas this week? Just no “Crime Watch.” The popular feature in the Katy Trail Weekly is on a brief hiatus because the Dallas Police Department is making public access to their police records unavailable the entire month of June because they are upgrading their system. According to DPD, beginning June 1, work on a new Records Management System (RMS) began to completely replace the old main-frame based report system. “Once fully implemented, the new RMS will give the Dallas Police Department improved intelligence gathering capabilities, increased accountability throughout the investigative process, and improved integration with the District Attorney’s Office,” the DPD reported. “Immediately after the system goes live, the process of validating the information entered into the new RMS will begin. This will be a joint effort involving personnel from within the Dallas Police Department, the City of Dallas Communication and Information Services and the vendor.” DPD says that the validation period is estimated to be no longer than 30 days. ­— David Mullen OUR MISSION

The Flag Store is located at 2116 N. Haskell Ave.

FLAG cont'd from page 1 The World Cup display is right next to the popular “jelly jar.” “Some people come in just for the jellies,” Lucas said. The smallest flag in the shop is 4 inches by 6 inches, with the largest flag 30 feet by 60 feet. They also rent and repair flags and poles, and make a number of custom flags. “The Boy Scouts of America rent from us,” Lucas said. “So does DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution).” “When dignitaries from other countries come to town,” Gonzales said. “They call us. They will need a flag representing the guest’s country.” Military flags and flags from around the world are neatly organized in the middle of the store behind an entryway covered with a custom flag. “Veterans Day is also a very busy time,” Lucas said. “A boy came in here the other day needing to finish his final school project,” Lucas said. He was doing a project on Swaziland. Lucas pointed toward the front of the store where the Swaziland flags are kept. “We had it,” Lucas said.

The store owners donated a flag pole that sits at Woodrow Wilson High School honoring former store owner and oldest living Wilson graduate Louise Sellers. “Louise told me that it should be good

advertising,” Lucas said. Actually, “word of mouth” is the store’s best advertising. “Sometimes people come and see us during the saddest hours,” Lucas said. “But we hear lots of great

stories.” “There are no political leanings when buying a flag,” Gonzales said. “You don’t need a flag until you think of it.” “We are one dimensional,” Lucas said. “We like flags.”

FITNESS ON THE TRAIL

Five secrets to stay motivated Lessons never taught in school or training By Rob Lord Years of helping people get into great shape has taught me many lessons I never learned in school or with a personal trainer certification. The most important thing that nobody teaches trainers is how to help clients stay motivated. This article will detail five seldom practiced secrets that will help you reach your full fitness potential. Pictures. Most of us lack the ability to view ourselves objectively, especially physically. Sometimes seeing a picture of yourself in a bathing suit can be a rude awakening. Instead of shying away from these pictures, use them to stay motivated. Here’s what you can specifically do: take your least favorite swimsuit picture and place it in your wallet near your credit card. Every time you make a food purchase, look at the picture and think about the choice you are about to make. Weigh-ins. Multiple research studies have shown that daily weigh-ins will not only help exercisers lose weight, but also keep it off. What is even better than weighing-in daily is having an accountability partner for weigh-ins. Find a friend who also wants to lose weight. Have them weigh-in each day

and text you their weight. You can do the same. It will have an amazing effect on the decisions you make. Music. At Brunel University in London, a team of leading experts on the psychology of exercise music wrote that exercisers should think of music as "a type of legal performanceenhancing drug." Here’s a funny thing about our brains: we think Rob Lord we can multi-task but in reality you can only have one thought at a time. Listening to music while training is a great way to distract yourself from the painful effort of a hard workout. When you are thinking about the song you are listening to, or day dreaming about something related to the music, you cannot be focused on how much longer your workout will take or second guess your ability to make it through. Journal. Many of us who have been members at gyms have noticed this phenomenon: we see the same people over and over again and they always look exactly the same. If you want to make going to the gym worthwhile you need to always be striving to improve. Much like having a daily weigh-in will help you make better food choices, keeping a workout journal will keep your workouts intense and effective. Record

your latest physical achievements into a notebook or Smartphone. It doesn’t matter what your goal is. If you want to lift more weight, record your sets and reps and try to improve on them. If you want to run faster, record the time or distance you ran, and try to improve on that. Sleep. Sleep is absolutely the cornerstone of your health and fitness goals. Our bodies are amazing machines. When we train, we damage our bodies on a microscopic level. We adapt and improve from our previous abilities as we heel. If you don’t get adequate rest, you will not give your body the chance to heal from the damage of a workout, thus you will not improve. Also, if you don’t get your seven to eight hours of sleep per night, you will crave more calories, especially carbs. First, you must completely black out your bedroom. No reading smart phones in bed and remove all ambient light. Second, make sure you go to bed early enough that you can wake up in time for work without the use of an alarm. These secrets are easy and very effective. With them, I have helped hundreds of people lose thousands of pounds of fat and gain hundreds of pounds of muscle. But it is up to you to follow through and try them out. If you do, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Rob Lord is the owner and head trainer at The AlphaProject.org.

Tr a il M i x By Brent Bergner @BergnerBrent

Sunday, June 15 is a day to honor the guy that, if it weren’t for him, we wouldn’t exist: our father. Trail Mix asked people about their fondest memories of the caring, supportive, sometimes tough, but usually fun guy we call “dad.”

Ravine Patel

“My dad is an extremely hard-working man and I’ve always appreciated that. There are five kids in my family and my dad managed to spend time with all of us and make us feel special. For some reason, one of most favorite memories is a night that we went to a Braum’s for ice cream and to play in the big play area and he would slide down the slides and play in the ball pit with us.”

Chris Peña

“When I was first learning to play the guitar, I wanted to be Tim McGraw. I was always learning his songs but my dad was always making me learn Elvis tunes. To this day, he’ll randomly start dancing and gesturing while singing “You Aint Nothin’ But A Hound Dog.” He’s always adding a light touch to everything.”

Alison Prado

“On many Sundays, my dad and I would sit on the couch and watch multiple Star Wars movies back-to-back. It would drive my mother crazy, but it was always my favorite time spent with my dad during my childhood. He’s amazing.”

McKenzie Raub

“My dad is an avid fisherman. Actually, anything that he enjoys, he goes all out and has great enthusiasm, which is something I’ve always admired (and probably the reason he has like six tackle boxes). My best memories are going on family fishing trips to our family farm in Arkansas, even as a ‘city girl.’”

Emily Barden

“When I was growing up and my dad was still in medical school, he would work tirelessly all the time. He used to pick me up from school and we would go and share a ice cream cone at Baskin-Robbins and ask me about my day. I always thought that was such a special treat. I admire my father for his calm, level-headed demeanor that instantly puts people at ease. Charismatic and consistent.”

ACTOR cont'd from page 1 The Texas native has hundreds of film credits. A few are: “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray; “Basic Instinct,” with Sharon Stone, who has her legendary scene — you know the one; “Thelma & Louise;” “Mississippi Burning;” “Spaceballs” and “Bird on a Wire.” In “Freaky Friday” he shared billing with today’s newsmaker, Lindsay Lohan. In one of his funniest roles in a dramedy, he plays “Glee” show choir director Sandy Ryerson, pre-Matthew Morrison’s Will Shuster. It turns out that Ryerson loses his job at McKinley High School when he becomes known as a child molester. But Ryerson doesn’t get the pink slip from McKinley until after the episode with this memorable speech from “Glee:” Howard Bamboo is a dyslexic coworker of Will Shuster’s wife, Terri in a 2009 episode. Howard Bamboo: “Who is Josh Groban?” Sandy Ryerson: “Who is Josh Groban? Kill yourself! He is an angel sent from heaven to deliver platinum records unto us. And if he were here right now, I would club you to death with his Critic’s Choice Award.” The Dallas native graduated from Justin Kimball High School and then received a fine arts bachelor degree from SMU. In his memoir, “The Dangerous Animals Club,” Toboloswky tells about the highs and lows of life as a character actor. His stories are both hilarious and poignant. Some of his roles have been so small, he says, his characters didn’t even have names — as, for example, “Buttcrack Plumber.” (Couldn’t “Joe the Plumber” have worked)? He quips that the problem with playing some of his roles is that the characters are “so low on the totem pole, that sometimes you’re mistaken for the cleaning staff, and people try to chase you off the set when you show up to work.”

In 2002, the New York Post’s Clive Barnes referred to a role as, “A beautifully stupid Stephen Tobolowsky” in Broadway’s revival of “Mornings at Seven.” Throughout the years, Tobolowsky has worked with a number of fellow Dallasites and SMU alumni in the theater and film industries. He had a part in Broadway’s, “The Wake of Jamey Foster,” co-starring former Dallasite Patricia Richardson. Richardson also played his wife in the movie, “In Country.” He did a TV pilot, “Out on Bail,” with another Dallas actor, Burton Gilliam. While at SMU, Tobolowsky worked at Theater Three, where he got his equity card in 1972. In 1976 he got his SAG card when performing in the horror flick, “Keep my Grave Open.” He commented, “I got murdered by Camilla Carr with a Samurai sword, while I was in the shower.” Carr is another Dallasite, often seen at Theatre Three and other area theaters. He said, “Of the movies I’ve made with (SMU alumna) Kathy Bates, my most memorable was the bedroom scene in ‘You May Not Kiss the Bride,’ where we ate Doritos and watched TV in bed.” He appeared in another four films with Bates, including “Failure to Launch” and “Little Black Book.” Shooting at different times, he and Bates were in “Love Liza” and “Roe versus Wade.” Milton Justice, another Dallas native, is an Academy Award winning producer, director and professor at the legendary Stella Adler Conservatory said, “Tobo (Tobolowsky) had the driest wit from his very early days at SMU.” Justice added, “[he] smart as a whip, which has continued in his writing today. We (who were older) were very aware of who he was, even as a freshman. He knew he was a character actor and reveled in it. In 1982, I saw him on Broadway in ‘The Wake of Jamey Foster.’ He blew me away.” Of the huge array of credits the actor has accumulated, he said the

work he’s most proud of is Children’s theater, which he’s performed all throughout California. Once he was invited to a school that was dealing with race riots. Some kids had been killed. “We had to enter under police protection. Kids threw things at the stage. The show was about inclusion, and I got the feedback that there were no more race riots after that.” About appearing in an eightepisode story arc in “Glee” since the series’ 2009 pilot, he said: “That’s more fun than you can shake a stick at. ‘Glee’ isn’t so much like doing a TV show but is more like a play.” His role was Sandy Ryerson, the show choir director before Will Shuster, who took over when Ryerson was fired for molesting children. “The cast is made up of theater people, who are always off in a corner rehearsing. It’s a good feeling to be part of that.” Tobolowsky said: “When I read the ‘Glee’ script, I had such a positive feeling. It’s not just about doing a musical show. Each character has such a great life story. If you could bottle that, it would make a lot of people happy.” Jac Alder, founder, producer and director of Theatre Three said he loved working with Tobolowsky while he attended SMU. “I’m so proud of him. He is both intelligent and smart and wonderfully quirky.” Alder added: “He’s incredibly talented and very inventive. He brings something of himself to every role. He improvs beautifully. He told me that Theatre Three’s and Dallas’ Larry O’Dwyer, who recently passed away, was an influence in his career.” He commented on the compelling questions Tobolowsky asked Morgan Fairchild (Dallas’ Patsy McClenny) when interviewing her recently at the USA Film Festival. Alder added, “Stephen’s from such a distinguished Dallas family that I’m sure must be very proud of him.” Tobolowsky is a brilliant storyteller and has taped stories for PRI and other media outlets. You can enjoy his stories online at PRI and his “Primary Instinct” at http://kck.st/1xFqqrv. Tobolowsky’s wife of 25 years, actress Ann Hearn, is known for films including, “The Accused,” “Lorenzo’s Oil” and “My Father the Hero.” The couple have two sons.

YOUR STARS THIS WEEK The coming week is likely to require more in the way of calculated risk than most have been used to taking in the recent past. There is much to be gained, of course, by those who are willing to put it on the line – but the dangers may be considerable, and, for some, they are not worth facing. For others, however – especially those for whom risk itself is proof of life – there is nothing so dangerous that the promise of reward cannot outweigh the risk, and this week that reward can be considerable. Some have money in their sights, or recognition, or simply the satisfaction of knowing that personal growth continues apace in this busy time. The realignment of goals with what is possible will prove quite important this week. A big part of getting one's ducks in a row will be open and honest communication with others. The formation of a team that works and plays well together – or the reformation of such a team – is an important goal.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) You may feel as though there is no end in sight, and indeed there is much to be done, but you should be able to get through it!

Chip's a favorite for more than just burgers By Sara Newberry Certain dishes are not difficult to make, necessarily, but can be difficult to make really well. I feel that way about burgers. They’re not difficult to create in theory — cook some meat and slap it on a bun with some garnishes — but creating a spectacular burger can be a challenge. Luckily for all of us, Chip’s is up to the task. Theirs is one of the best burgers I’ve had, hands down. From the patty (seasoned, juicy and

The thing about Chip’s is that they let you do the work to create the burger you want. They don’t create combinations for you, you get to pick and choose as you see fit, from the bun (there’s even a gluten-free option) to the cheese to the extras. On a recent visit I chose my all-time favorite combination of grilled onions, mushrooms and Swiss, with mayonnaise on the side. I knew the flavors would complement each other — I picked them! — but what I didn’t know was how delicious each of these elements would be. The mushrooms were earthy and a little crisp from the cooktop. The onions were

building in my mind. Gears started turning. In a few days, I was on a plane to Toronto to meet with Ken Field, chairman of Bramalea Ltd., who had just purchased the remaining Main Place land from Clint Murchison. I delivered a 16point letter to Field, outlining the bank’s requirements, including, “It must be the tallest building.” Banks loved tall buildings. After five days of negotiations, I returned to Dallas with the basic deal points agreed to. The rest is history. The lease was made for 450,000 square feet, and the ownership joint venture was formed with Bramalea, InterFirst and Prudential. All of this took another 18 months. In 1985, the 1,750,000 square foot building was named InterFirst Plaza and was 72 percent leased. It opened to much fanfare with its famous green outline lighting. Next year, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most prominent tower in Dallas, now known as Bank of America Plaza.

Rebuilding and rebranding in almost any style By Annie Tamez

info@katytrailweekly.com Uniquely in the business of salvage and recycling, Discount Home Warehouse on Empire Central provides used cabinets, floors, knobs, shutters and chandeliers that once graced Dallas’ finest homes, hotels and restaurants and await a creative soul to come breathe life into them again. The DHW owners, Tom and Heather Hirosky, do see the fruits of their labor come full circle at their store. A week ago, Heather posted on the store’s Facebook page that Le Madeleine Café bought antique flooring and beams.

“Salvaged floors isn’t just for floors. They used it to redo their ceiling!” Heather said. “Think outside the box when using salvaged materials.” The Hiroskys started their business in the early 1990s when others were also beginning to take an interest in recycling and vintage architecture. Because both worked as managers at Kmart, they had experience at organizing a store by department. They thought they could improve on an idea they had seen others carry out. Tom also has a business degree and both share a passion for recycling and reusing materials. So, they decided to go more indepth into recycling than other vendors. “Tom’s idea was not just to sell the beautiful architectural materials, but also the breaker boxes, the AC units, everything that would make it ‘shoppable’ for everyone,” Heather said. Their first store was a storage shed that the Hiroskys rented. They gradually increased the size of their space until they moved to their current 20,000 squarefoot location at 1758 Empire Central near the intersection

the store’s top selling items are fixtures like doorknobs and lights. But often people come there to buy traditional items that they put to creative uses. “Lots of law firms that office in lofts will buy our old doors and place them on rails to use as room dividers,” she said. “We have so many treasures in our store that appeal to so many tastes.

MOVIE TRAILER

Tatum and Hill make a brilliantly funny team in ‘22 Jump Street’

By Chic DiCiccio

derekdiciccio@me.com It’s difficult to tell which of these two items is more surprising: the fact that “21 Jump Street” was a box office and critical success or the fact that its sequel, “22 Jump Street,” is every bit as worthy of those same successes. “22 Jump Street” is perhaps the first movie to embrace its own insanity and become fully self-aware. When Deputy Chief Hardy (another brilliant Nick Offerman cameo) sends Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) back to the undercover division, he does so with brilliantly funny metaphors that also explain the reasoning for creating the movie. Essentially, Offerman delivers the most meta-filled monologue in film history. Since Schmidt and Jenko look far too old to go back to high school, Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) sends them off to college to track down the dealer of a dangerous new synthetic drug called “WHYPHY.” And yes, watching Tatum’s Jenko attempt to decipher how to say that word is as funny as it sounds. Once there, the tables are turned as Schmidt quickly becomes the nerdy outcast, hanging out with a quiet art student Maya (Amber Stevens) and sipping wine while looking at sculptures.

Meanwhile, Jenko is in full dude bro form, doing keg stands with his new fraternity and football buddy Zook (Wyatt Russell), all with scantily clad women fawning over him. “22 Jump Street” doesn’t even try to hide the fact that this is the exact same story as its predecessor. Every character stresses that “it’s the same exact thing,” which is fully ignored by Schmidt and Jenko as they strive to become the most inept, yet successful policemen since Inspector Clouseau. When the self-referencing jokes stop, the homoerotic ones begin. Since Schmidt and Jenko are partners, it makes for a non-stop barrage of “partner” related humor. These can be looked at as hilarious or the laziest and easiest series of jokes ever. Either way, it’s a riot. This movie cements directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as truly skilled and highly competent filmmakers. In addition to these two deliciously filthy and raunchy movies, they have directed “The Lego Movie” and the two “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” films. Those films are all highly technical and gorgeous to behold, but “22 Jump Street” may be their finest looking movie yet. Lord and Miller have made a Michael Bay-style action movie and none of it is

done in jest. Every action scene is done just as if this was one of the horrible Tatum-starring “G.I. Joe” movies and never in parody. It actually legitimizes the movie and makes it way more fun than it already is. They make a car chase in which Jenko and Schmidt are piloting a golf cart covered by a football helmet exciting and laughable all at once. Since the plot is paper thin (but not stupid), the actors are counted on to propel the movie forward, and they do not disappoint. Every single role is perfectly cast and the cameos (which will not be mentioned here) are quite clever. Jillian Bell plays Maya’s roommate who does nothing but mock Schmidt’s age and appearance. The Lucas Brothers are two stoners that live across the hall from Schmidt and Jenko and watching them finish each other’s sentences is silly and an extremely easy joke, but funny nonetheless. Peter Stormare plays The Ghost, a drug dealer villain and, well, he’s Peter Stormare. That guy wakes up and is a brilliant villain in any genre. But then, there is the

real scene stealer in “22 Jump Street.” Ice Cube is in this movie more than the first one and he dominates the screen. His snarl alone elicits chuckles, but his brutal insults of Schmidt and Jenko are direct hits to the funny bone. There is a plot twist that is so smartly funny that it had an entire theater of human beings literally falling out of their seats. It is completely unexpected and watching Ice Cube act it all out could potentially be the funniest thing you’ll see in a theater in 2014. After a couple of Academy Award nominations, it would be easy for Jonah Hill to ditch sophomoric humor. Nope. He mocks his weight, his looks, and shows absolutely no fear

while doing it. He’s more of the straight man this time around, but he still has plenty of moments that show off his comedic skills. Look, he puts a grenade in his swim trunks just because he says “it feels right.” A Best Supporting Actor nomination will not be in the cards for this one, just nonstop, cringe-inducing awkward laughter. Channing Tatum is brilliant. More than brilliant. As many, many female admirers will attest, he’s perfect. This is another eye-opening, genius performance from Tatum, who seemingly can do no wrong. His timing is impeccable. He seems to know the exact amount of time to pause or stutter that will then produce the highest amount of laughter.

Mark this down: Tatum will receive a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical. It will be the safest bet you can make. That is how great he is in “22 Jump Street.” Hill and Tatum should become the next Abbott and Costello. Their chemistry makes “22 Jump Street,” like “21 Jump Street,” way, way better than it actually deserves to be. This movie is going to make a boatload of money and will no doubt force another sequel on the world. If this one is any indication, it will be just as hysterical as the first two. Also, be sure to stick around for the credits and you may get an idea what “23 Jump Street” will be about.

WORLD PREMIERE

SMU associate film professor Macartney to debut film in Oak Cliff By Victoria Winkelman “Wanda the Wonderful,” a feature-length documentary film about a volatile 1920s Wild West sharpshooter who uses her firearm skills to escape her past, will have its world premiere in Dallas. Seven years in the making, the film is a labor of love by Wanda’s granddaughter Carolyn Macartney, associate professor of film at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. It will debut at the Oak Cliff Film Festival 6 p.m. June 22 at the Kessler Theater. Born in 1900 in the Chickasaw Indian Territory, Wanda grew up to be a rebel, a woman who toted guns and wore pants when skirts were the norm. She traveled the world as “Wanda Savage,” entertaining vaudeville audiences both large and small with her sharpshooting act. Along the way, she bore seven

children by four different men, performed as a stuntwoman and actress in Hollywood and worked at The Ritz brothel in Thermopolis, Wyoming. It was at The Ritz that she met her fourth and final husband, a sheep rancher named Carl Hampton. Wanda and Carl lived together happily for some time, until the secrets of her past caught up

with her and during a heated argument Wanda shot Carl. “I never met my grandmother Wanda but was always intrigued by the stories I heard about her growing up, even though she was a taboo subject,” said Macartney. “With this film I have sought to uncover the true story of Wanda. She was a magnetic, restless and fallible character

who led an adventurous life and had numerous tempestuous love affairs. She followed her passions at whatever cost and at a time when women had few options. The film looks at the sacrifices that individuals of extreme talent and temperament make and their consequences.” A documentary/narrative/ Western hybrid, the film is based upon and includes documentary elements about the real-life Wanda, including archival imagery from her Hollywood and show business careers and ranching life; interviews with descendants and friends; voice-overs of Wanda’s letters to her children; and family home movies.

and Texas.
