Whatever the heck a "whirlycane" is, Hollywood movie "Anatomy of a Murder" brought it to Detroit for its 1959 world premiere. "A WHIRLYCANE OF SOCIAL" is the description used in this vintage clip documenting the film's big Michigan debut. Director Otto Preminger and stars Lee Remick and George C. Scott attended the slew of local functions surrounding the premiere of the film shot entirely on location in the Upper Peninsula.
The setting is a colonial house, once devastated by fire, and single-handedly, painstakingly restored to rustic beauty by Lawrence. It exists isolated in an impossible golden field, where no cell phone signal can reach. I noticed no driveway or the sounds of cars. The movie opens with Lawrence awakening in the morning, and searching the house for her husband; the camera follows close behind her, revealing the manse’s circular construction, which will soon prove disorienting.
Another month, another rummaging through Netflix’s eternally disorganized selection. Here’s a free idea for you, Netflix: THE ALPHABET. There’s even a catchy song that’ll help you remember it. It’s a great way to organize things – much better than Mysterious Algorithm, Loose Genre Clumps, Random Title Salad or whatever system you currently use. And here's where I perform a service for you Netflix users, should you be sifting the Netflix river for a gem to watch this evening.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
