In Memoriam

Joel Schumacher, 1939-2020

The New York-born filmmaker worked in costume design and screenwriting before directing films that drew a wide variety of reactions but nonetheless became part of pop culture, from his campy Batman installments to St. Elmo's Fire, The Lost Boys, Falling Down, and The Client.

New York Doll

Directed by Greg Whiteley

Biography, Illnesses & Disabilities, Vocal Music - Rated PG13 - 75 Minutes - 2005

In the mid-'70s, he was Arthur "Killer" Kane, the towering and pouty bassist for punk forefathers the New York Dolls. But after the band's short life came to an end, he fell into alcohol abuse and found solace in the Mormon church, where he worked as a librarian since the late '80s. But when Morrissey calls to reunite the Dolls in 2004, Kane's past comes flooding back to him. (Available on Prime Video)
