Elle Fanning making path of her own By Mary Anne Hempe
Mary Anne Hempe
When Olivia de Havilland was nine years old, she wrote a will leaving all her beauty to her younger sister Joan Fontaine, since “she doesn’t have any.” Their relationship went downhill from there. Although both Olivia and Joan enjoyed long, Oscar-winning careers, their successes only served to fuel their jealousy and hatred.The battling actresses, now in their 90s, haven’t spoken to each other in more than 50 years. Let’s hope that things work out better for the Fanning sisters, who are well on their way to Oscars of their own. Sixteen-year-old Dakota is already a star, with remarkably mature performances in more than a dozen movies, and now it appears that little sister, Elle, is right on her heels with her amazing portrayal of a troubled young girl in 2008’s “Phoebe in Wonderland.” Nine-year-old Phoebe Lichten (Elle) doesn’t fit in — anywhere. Her freethinking parents, Hillary and Peter, have tried their best to be understanding and not squash her creativity, but they are ready to admit that something is wrong with their beautiful daughter. Phoebe can’t control herself. She blurts out whatever she’s thinking, no
Forgotten Video matter how inappropriate or cruel it might be. She spits on classmates who tease and torment her. She washes her hands so much they’re raw and bloody and refuses to come inside at night until she’s performed a ritual on the sidewalk involving lots of clapping, twirling and counting. Hillary thinks it’s just a phase Phoebe’s going through. She spends a great deal of time with Phoebe, giving her lots of attention and praise, but it doesn’t seem to be doing any good — and it’s making her younger daughter, the precocious Olivia, very jealous. Peter thinks Phoebe’s problems are more than just a ploy to gain Hillary’s attention, but Peter’s fathering skills are so weak, he prefers to let his wife deal with Phoebe. Oddly enough, a solution comes in the form of the new drama teacher at school, Miss Dodger, a mysterious woman of few words. Miss Dodger is the complete opposite of the rest of Phoebe’s teachers, who follow a strict set of rules. Miss Dodger believes in letting children think for themselves. When she announces an upcoming production of

“Alice in Wonderland,” Phoebe is determined to win the lead role. And she does. At first, things go so well that Hillary and Peter start thinking that perhaps whatever was ailing their little girl has gone away. But it isn’t long before Phoebe’s troublesome behavior returns. Although Phoebe would never tell anyone, she’s now starting to see visions of the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, Humpty Dumpty, the Cheshire Cat and Alice. Is Phoebe on her way to being trapped down the rabbit hole forever? Elle, who was only 10 when she made “Phoebe in Wonderland,” is simply superb. She’s just not a little kid acting; she’s a little girl going through a traumatic experience neither she nor her parents understand (until the end). While the solution to Phoebe’s problems seems a little tacked on, it’s still quite believable and well-played by both child and parents. I loved Elle’s buddy Jamie, who doesn’t care that kids make fun of him for playing with American Girls dolls and earning the part of the Red Queen. Felicity Huffman and Patricia Clarkson are wonderful, and Campbell Scott is a hoot as the flustered Principal Davis. You can find “Phoebe in Wonderland” (rated PG-13) online at Netflix. Check it out!

Dorothy ‘Miss Blues’ Ellis to play for Red Cross By Doug Hill
If you go
“Oh Heavens, yes,” Dorothy “Miss Blues” Ellis replied emphatically when asked if she still was having fun singing the blues. “You know I’m going to play as ‘special guest’ with BB King next weekend at the Black Oak Amphitheater in Missouri.” Performing on the same bill as blues music’s biggest star is just one more feather in the cap of Oklahoma City’s beloved juke joint chanteuse. In a telephone interview Aug. 25, Miss Blues spoke of her life and a career that began before she was even 10 years old. Ellis got her nickname singing for the other workers as they picked cotton in the fields near Direct, Texas. “It was called Direct because a preacher came through there once and didn’t get much money after passing the collection plate,” she said. “He told them they’d be going direct to Hell.” Miss Blues learned to sing by listening to her mother. “I didn’t go to church and learn notes there,” she said. “I took the blues to the church house. I am one of your few blues singers who did not start out in church.” Her first paying gig was at a juke joint at the Gossfarn plantation on Easter Sunday in 1943. “Earl Shamblee said ‘Come on little Miss Blues,’ and the black people put their pennies and nickels together. It rang up to be $2.50, which is what I got paid,” she said. “Thousands lived in
The concert is Saturday at the Hidden Castle, 1309 24th Ave. SW, Norman. Tickets are $9 in advance by calling 414-1938 or $10 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m. and headliner Miss Blues will take the stage last at about 10 p.m.

“Miss Blues” is bringing her soulful vocal stylings to the Hidden Castle on Saturday. She’s shown here in concert at 2009 Jazz in June’s Blues Night.
“The blues really gives you hope that there’s a better tomorrow. You find in there a ... realization that you are not alone in your problems.” Dorothy “Miss Blues” Ellis those little shanties on the plantation, and they had the juke joint for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights,” she said. A fiddler and guitarist backed her up. Miss Blues never looked back from there. She went on to a career that’s included sharing the stage with Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, Taj Mahal and Richard “Groove” Holmes. Regardless of her moniker, Ellis also sings jazz and has been known to take on
country music, as well. “I can sing anything,” she said. Ellis broke into an a capella rendering of Ernest Tubbs’ “Walking the Floor over You,” serenading me over the phone. “I played with Hank Crawford (jazz saxophonist) in a club at 23rd and Lottie,” Ellis said. “I can’t remember the club’s name, they tore my building down.” She performed in OKC’s
jumping joints, such as the Sunset Club, Blue Note and the Hi Lo. Along the way, she also managed to earn a graduate degree in counseling psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma. Ellis authored a book titled “Hoecakes and Collard Greens,” a collection of folklore, recipes and wisdom. She was married for more than 50 years and her deceased husband was the subject for many of the songs she’s composed. “I’ve kind of lost my inspiration for writing the blues because I ain’t got nobody doing nothing to me to write about,” she said. “But, at 75, I don’t need no 80-year-old boyfriend.” Miss Blues has observed over the years that her genre speaks to people around the globe. “The blues really gives you hope that there’s a
better tomorrow,” she said. “You find in there a line to hook to and realization that you are not alone in your problems. Somebody else has gone through the same thing.” She described it as an anchor in a troubled world. “Blues has stayed with me at the times when I was all alone,” said Ellis, who was orphaned at an early age. “Soon as my mama died, I became a product that nobody wanted. I had to root-hog or die and, as a consequence, the blues was in my heart, and that’s why I have a passion for it.” Ellis survived those times and didn’t forget the
songs her mama sang to her. They were a comfort to her as a little girl and still are today. “I think I developed my love for the blues in the womb,” she said. “Soon as I popped out, I was singing ‘Good Morning Blues/ How Do You Do.’” Hear Miss Blues’ passion Saturday night at the Hidden Castle, backed by Ron Harmon (keys), Rob Hibbert (guitar), Darryl Ross (bass) and Mike Bell (drums). Also on the bill are the entertaining Blue Chunks with fiery frontman Eric McDaniel. Sunshine and the Bluesmen will open the show.

Band to bring country Texans to roots to county fair grace Sooner By Andrew W. Griffin Pop writer
The one band performing at the Cleveland County Free Fair this year that is staying true to the roots of country music is the Noblebased Justin Fox Band. Pop recently spoke to Fox, the lead singer and rhythm guitar player for the quartet. “I’ve been playing since I was about 15,” Fox said. And for the past six years, Fox has had a fairly steady line-up of musicians backing him up, which currently include lead guitarist Rich Wells, bassist Dean Dull and his brother Sean Fox on drums. Inspired by well-known country legends ranging from George Strait to Waylon Jennings to Merle Haggard, Justin Fox , 31, said he likes to mix up a typical set with cover songs and originals, which include “Gravel Road,” “Livin’” and “Common Girl.” Fox said the JFB has opened up for well-known artists like the Randy Rogers Band, Earl Thomas Conley, Wade Bowen and the Red Dirt Rangers. Fox, who works for the City of Norman, is also a

We play all kinds of events,” he said, noting that they have even played at Oklahoma City’s popular Wormy Dog Saloon. One event he has played a couple of years in a row is the “Boots and Bandanas” country-themed event at the Oklahoma Governor’s Mansion. Fox said he met Gov. Brad Henry and that

the event is “cool.” “Everybody enjoyed it,” Fox said. Being that he sticks to the classic country sound, rather than the more modern, pop-country style, Fox said they have a pedal steel or fiddle player with them from time-to-time,
but “they couldn’t make it” to the gig at the Cleveland County Free Fair. “If anything, I tell everybody that we’re one of the few bands left around here that plays the old-style, classic country music these days,” Fox said. “We’ve been doing this for quite a while now.” Fox said an album of original material is in the works and that folks can expect to enjoy live shows where the music takes center stage. “I just play because I love music. I take it seriously, though,” he said.
Sooners usually aren’t big fans of Texas during football season, but music lovers will surely make an exception in September when two dynamic Texas musicians take the stage at The Sooner Theatre, 101 E. Main Street in downtown Norman. September 18, Bugs Henderson, the Texas native who has played with such guitar icons as B.B. King, Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Ted Nugent, Roy Buchanan and James Burton will take The Sooner Theatre stage for a special performance beginning at 8 p.m. Henderson’s mixture of blues, jazz, swing, funk and more show off his musical artistry, a gift he generously shares with his audience at every performance. Henderson’s guitar hangs in Hard Rock Café in Dallas, alongside instruments donated by Lee Ritenouer and Chet Atkins. This show is presented by Rusty Sullivan and Kendall’s
Restaurant.Tickets are $25, $20 and $15. The following week, on Sept. 24,The Sooner Theatre kicks off its 20102011 Main Event Concert Series with a show by another native Texan, Grammy-Award winner Delbert McClinton, beginning at 8 p.m. McClinton fuses rootsbased rock, rhythm and blues, and country-flavored honky-tonk, in his unique musical blend, which is pared with his gravelly vocals and sensitive lyrics.The intensity of McClinton’s live performances hits a chord with audiences of diverse musical tastes.Tickets are $40, $35 and $30. Main Event Concert Series season tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by phone at 3219600 or in person at the theatre box office 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Tickets for Henderson, a special add-on performance, are now available with the purchase of season tickets.

‘Ali’ film steeped in boxing history “Facing Ali” is a documentary about the legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali, as told from the perspective of 10 boxers who fought him and with the assistance of a great deal of archival footage. The film is so much more than a sports documentary. What really drives it are the stories the boxers relay about themselves and their opponents over the years. As such, you don’t really need any understanding of the sport itself or even have to enjoy the sport as a whole to gain something from this very interesting and touching film. As Ali’s health is such that he was unable to give an interview for this film, his only voice is presented through the archival footage of his boxing days. While I had seen some of the clips before, I was still blown away by his commanding presence
Kelsey MartynFarewell DVDs On Parade at such a young age, as well as how bold he was in talking about his boxing talents. The current-day interviews feature such notable boxers as George Foreman and Joe Frazier, which were the only two boxers I knew of before the film. Perhaps my favorite interviews were given by Canadian champion George Chuvalo and British champion Sir Henry Cooper. Other boxers interviewed were Larry Holmes, Ron Lyle, Ken Norton, Ernie Shavers, Leon Spinks and Ernie Terrell. On top of the boxing history that the film tells, it also tells the story of Ali’s role in the Civil Rights movement and his importance to the
African Americans from the 1960s through today.The film demonstrated how white America turned against Ali when he converted to Islam and changed his name.The filmmakers also included footage of Ali voicing his opinions about the war in Vietnam, denouncing the violence and refusing to be drafted, resulting in a threeyear absence he was forced to take from competition. What is clear from the present-day interviews is that they all have a deep respect and, in some cases, love for Ali. What is most surprising to me is that their feelings have nothing to do with who was declared the winner of their fight together. There are four features on the DVD for this film. “Animated Trivia Cards” gives a list of boxing stats and personal factoids about each of the 10 boxers interviewed
in the film. “Bringing the Fights to Life” is a compilation of production crew interviews, where they talk about the technical details of filming using a new camera technique, as well as the process of cleaning archival footage. “Facing Ali: From Book to Screen” relays the importance the filmmakers placed on letting the boxers tell the story to create a unique perspective, as well as the selection of the titles and music used for the film. “After the Bell” provides a behind-the-scenes look at the boxers in the film, as told by the filmmakers, as they relate the stories of shooting the interviews and giving updates on the boxers’ lives. This film was the recipient of two awards, one for Most Popular Film at the Vancouver Film Festival and the other for Best Film at the
Vancouver Film Critics Circle. For a captivating documentary that happens to be set in the history of boxing, check out “Facing Ali.” You can find it in your local store in new releases or special interest.
