Robert Zemeckis' Who Framed Roger Rabbit wasn't the first film to combine live action with cartoon animation (it had been done around 1920 with the Out of the Inkwell series), but the 1988 Disney/Amblin production was by far the most expensive and successful. The $50.5 million film ($105 million today) brought in $161 million worldwide ($335 million today) and won Academy Awards for visual effects, sound effects editing and film editing.
For Dorothy Arzner, the word "first" comes up frequently. She was the first woman admitted to the Directors Guild of America and the first woman to direct a sound picture (1928's Manhattan Cocktail). She also directed Paramount's first talking feature, 1929 box-office hit The Wild Party with Clara Bow. She's credited with inventing the first boom mic when she attached a microphone to a fishing pole. She was the first film editor to receive a screen credit.
Before 1977's Star Wars put his career into hyperdrive, Mark Hamill was doing just fine with episodic TV work on such forgettable series as ABC's The FBI and CBS' The Manhunter. One standout was the 1974 sitcom The Texas Wheelers. It was centered on a long-absent father who returns to his family in rural Lamont, Texas. "The show was like a discordant reply to The Waltons," says Hamill, 66. "The scripts were unbelievable, and the critics loved the show."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
