Family Flicks The Marx Brothers’ 1933 comedy masterpiece Duck Soup is chockablock with slapstick, but the themes of the political satire run deep and surprisingly topical. The marvelous Margaret Dumont co-stars as the millionaire widow who finances the political shenanigans. Younger children will enjoy the physical humor and gags; older children might be ready for a post-movie talk on the implications of nationalism. Directed by Leo McCarey, who added the oft-imitated mirror scene.
Laemmle Anniversary Classics The 1982 musical-romantic-comedy Victor/Victoria was the best film collaboration between director Blake Edwards and wife, actress Julie Andrews. As a down-on-her-luck singer in 1930s Paris, Andrews’ Victoria transforms into “Victor,” who becomes the toast of the cabaret world as a female impersonator.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Nicholas Meyer’s director's cut screens for its 35th anniversary. The 1982 “Khan” is considered the best of the “Star Trek” films, especially those based on the original series. The regulars from the television series all returned to their roles, even the reluctant Leonard Nimoy, as well as the outstanding Ricardo Montalban, who first played the title villain in a 1967 TV episode. Kirstie Alley co-stars as the foxy half-Vulcan, Saavik.
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".
