Independents’ Day: Canada’s Harry Rosen Has Owned the Men’s Market for Decades

TORONTO — Harry Rosen has a lock on the Canadian men’s wear market, but that hold hasn’t come without a lot of hard work.
The company was founded in 1954 by Harry and his brother Lou Rosen in a small storefront in Toronto to provide made-to-measure suits for men. The firm has since grown into a 300 million Canadian dollar ($ 228.3 million), 18-store chain with locations in the seven largest cities around the country and some 1,000 employees.
Although Harry stepped back from the day-to-day operation of the business in 2005, he still serves as an ambassador, often stopping by one of the stores to chat with customers. But he left the company in good hands: as chief executive officer since 2000, his son Larry Rosen has built on his father’s legacy. Waiting in the wings is Ian Rosen, Larry’s son, who is joining the family business this summer to oversee its digital marketing initiatives, and at the same time, ensure the eventual transition to the next generation will be seamless.
But Harry Rosen has also branched out beyond its core business, teaming up with Ermenegildo Zegna to open flagship stores for the luxury Italian label in Canada. In August, a 3,000-square-foot Zegna

Meghan Markle Joins Prince Harry at Polo Match on Princess Diana’s Birthday

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry returned to the Audi Polo Challenge on what would have been Princess Diana’s 57th birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the annual charity event on Sunday together.

Meghan, 36, opted for a casual white button-down shirt and a pair of form-fitting black capri pants, which she accessorized with a pair of black flats, sunglasses and what appears to be the same Madewell x Biltmore panama hat that she wore to the event on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Harry was seen arriving in a white polo shirt with stripes on the side, which he paired with white pants and boots.

Meghan also attended the event on Saturday, as she cheered on Harry and his brother Prince William while the royal brothers took to the field at the Coworth Park Polo Club. William was not seen arriving at the event on Sunday.

The Audi Polo Challenge likely holds a special place in Meghan and Harry’s hearts: Their appearance at the game last year was the first time the couple attended a public event together, and they marked the milestone with a kiss.

In a sweet nod to Diana, Meghan and Harry found many ways to honor her legacy during their May wedding.

During the ceremony, Meghan’s wedding bouquet, which featured flowers Harry picked himself from their private garden at Kensington Palace, included Diana’s favorite flowers: Forget-Me-Nots.

The Duke and Duchess also included another one of Diana’s favorite flowers — white garden roses — in a unique floral display in St. George’s Chapel.

Later on the special day, Meghan was seen wearing Diana’s aquamarine ring on her right hand while she and her husband were seen leaving for their wedding reception.

Diana famously wore the emerald cut Aquamarine stunner to an auction of her own clothes at Christie’s in 1997.

In an image released by the palace, while Meghan sits on the floor of the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle, Harry sits on an emerald green couch. It was the same couch on which Harry’s late mother was photographed sitting while holding a baby Harry at his christening in 1984.

 

Diana sat next to Queen Elizabeth while Prince Charles rested on the antique furniture’s arm next to her. In the middle of the photo was a young William in a white polo shirt and baby blue shorts as he grinned off-camera.

17 Priceless Quotes from Lifetime’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance

It’s finally here! No, not the royal wedding — the Lifetime movie about the royal couple!

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance premieres Sunday and features key moments throughout Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s courtship. With Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley stepping into the lead roles, the TV movie captures the couple’s blind date, their romantic trip to Botswana, and, of course, that fateful, cozy chicken dinner where they were formally engaged. In between, they interact with their families — yep, Will and Kate are there too — and battle the relentless paparazzi and tabloids.

Much like Lifetime’s William & Kate movie, which aired the year of their wedding and starred Grey’s Anatomy‘s Camilla Luddington and Grimm‘s Nico Evers-Swindell, Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance features some unforgettable moments we haven’t seen (and quite possibly never really happened) and some truly choice dialogue.

Here, we’ve broken down the 17 t-shirt worthy lines from the film.

Harry: “Aren’t you bored of being perfect yet?
Will: “It’s not me that’s perfect; it’s Kate. I just shove her out there and she makes me look good.”

Harry: “Is she hot?”
Violet, Harry and Meghan’s matchmaker: “Put it this way, ginger boy. If you weren’t a prince, you wouldn’t have a shot.”

Meghan, to Harry: “I’m gonna actually need you to hold off on the compliments until you apologize for being 40 minutes late.”

Meghan: “I actually wanted to be the first bi-racial female President of the United States of America but then I ended up as a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal.”

Harry, stating the facts: “Best blind date ever.”

Doria Radlan, Meghan’s mother, after hearing about that first date: “Did you give the milk away for free?”

Meghan, in Botswana: “This is a lot better than the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland.”

Will: “Kate and I binge-watched Suits over the weekend. I love that phrase, binge-watched.”

Kate: “She makes Wallace Simpson look like Dame Judi Dench.”

Meghan: “I was in Botswana with Prince Harry.”
Neal, her hairstylist: “Michael Jackson’s son?!”

Kate: “We all have to live by the same rules. If she’s your girl, she can’t have opinions.”
Will: “At least not in public. In private, you have a lot of opinions, darling.”
Charles: “Yes, yes, she certainly does.”

Meghan, reacting to Harry’s public statement about her safety: “I’m a grown ass woman living in a real modern world and not some fragile wench up in an ivory tower. My tower ain’t ivory, dude!”

Kate, to Meghan: “Us commoners have to stick together.”

Kate, to Meghan: “Let’s face it, my most important contribution to this country is my reproductive ability. It’s bizarre.”

Harry, after Meghan tries to get him to open up about Diana: “You’re an actress, not my damn therapist! I know all about those!”

Queen Elizabeth: “I’m told you are an actress… Are you involved with that program The Crown?”
Meghan: “No, Ma’am.”
Queen Elizabeth: “Oh good. Then I won’t have to throw you in the tower.”

Queen Elizabeth, still talking about Netflix’s The Crown: “Not sure why they have to make it while one’s still alive.”

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Attend Invictus Games Reception

SPORTS DAY: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out on Saturday, attending an Invictus Games reception in London.
The event, held in West London, was hosted by Malcolm Turnbull, the Prime Minister of Australia, and his wife, Lucy Turnbull.
The young royals met with servicemen and women from the U.K. and Australia and learned more about plans for the Invictus Games, which will be held in Sydney in October.
Prince Harry is the patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which mounts the global sporting event for injured and wounded veterans and members of the armed forces.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Attend Women’s Empowerment Reception

GIRL POWER: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out to attend a Women’s Empowerment reception on Thursday in London.
Hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, at the Royal Aeronautical Society, the event included members from charities and organizations to aid gender equality and girls education.
The event is a part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, which is taking place from April 16 to 20. The engaged couple met with charity workers involved with their initiatives to empower females.
Markle was formerly a Women’s Advocate for the United Nations, and took a trip to India last year, where she toured the Myna Mahila Foundation and learned about the charity’s work to fight “period poverty.” Many women in India have limited access to sanitary protection during their menstrual periods.
She wore a little black dress from Black Halo.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Make Impromptu Visit to Ireland

IRISH JAUNT: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an impromptu visit to Northern Ireland on Friday.
The engaged couple traveled to Belfast where they met with teens and children from Amazing the Space, a youth-led initiative. The program, launched by Prince Harry last September, promotes young people as ambassadors of peace. They met with members of the organization at the Eikon Exhibition Centre and spoke with students. They also took in a tour of The Crown Liquor Saloon, a former gin palace now run by The National Trust, and the Titanic Belfast, a visitor attraction where the RMS Titanic was built.
Markle channeled inspiration from the colors of the Irish flag wearing a Mackage coat, Victoria Beckham knit top and Greta Constantine skirt in green and white hues. She accessorized her look with a Charlotte Elizabeth tote and Jimmy Choo heels.

Is Harry Styles Addressing His Sexuality in New Song ‘Medicine?’ Twitter Thinks So

Harry Styles surprised fans with two new songs recently, and has sent listeners straight to Twitter with questions about his sexuality.

The singer and former One Direction member, 24, performed in Paris on Tuesday night at the AccorHotels Arena as part of his current European solo tour when he debuted the previously unreleased tracks “Anna” and “Medicine,” the latter of which caught the attention of many due to its lyrics.

“The boys and the girls are here I mess around with them / And I’m okay with it / I’m coming down/ I figured out I kinda like it / And when I sleep I’m gonna dream of how you tasted,” Styles can be heard belting out in a fan-recorded video from the concert.

Though the singer has yet to confirm the inspiration behind the song, many on social media have dubbed “Medicine” a “bisexual anthem.”

“@Harry_Styles can you verify whether or not Medicine is you coming out,” one fan tweeted.

While another follower referenced his former bandmate Zayn Malik’s split from girlfriend Gigi Hadid after two years of dating: “Ok ok yeah zayn and gigi broke up but let’s talk abt harry styles new bisexual anthem medicine.”

In addition, attendees spotted Styles’ reported flame Camille Rowe and his mother Anne in the crowd at the Paris venue.

RELATED: Proof Harry Styles Has Always Loved a Bold Suit

Styles — who was romantically linked to Taylor Swift in 2012 and Kendall Jenner in 2015 — touched upon his sexuality in May 2017, telling The Sun about how he has “never felt the need” to define his sexual orientation.

“I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself,” he told the British outlet. “Everyone should just be who they want to be. It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”

Later that same year, the star waved a massive pride flag during his first solo tour show in San Francisco, California, in September.

Styles previously shot down rumors that he was bisexual in a 2013 interview with British GQ.

“Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not,” he told the men’s glossy at the time.

In the same interview, he called rumors and speculation over his sexuality funny, ridiculous and annoying.

“I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumors,” he told British GQ. “I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is, I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying.”

Zayn Malik’s New Tattoo Confirms That He’s a Harry Potter Superfan

This year has been off to a busy start for Zayn Malik. He got new eye tattoos on his chest (that fans speculate could be in honor of Gigi Hadid), then he got a massive new chest tattoo (of a red wolf) and now he’s chosen one of his most magical tatts yet, with his new Harry Potter-themed ink.

The ex One Direction star got a “dark mark” in honor of the infamous antagonist of the Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemort.

In new paparazzi shots, Malik was spotted in Florida relaxing by the pool with a noticeably large new tattoo below his right knee.

He chose a photo of Voldemort angrily battling in a fight scene, and while it could be from a number of legendary Voldemort duels, it most closely resembles his face during the Battle of Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

“Wait did zayn seriously get a tattoo of Gigi’s eyes,” one fan said on Twitter.

Another tweeted: “Y’all this boy zayn really got a tattoo of Gigi’s Eyes.”

Star Wars: BB-8 Dishes on Meeting Prince William and Harry at The Last Jedi Premiere

BB-8 is spilling it all!

The beloved droid stopped by PEOPLE Now to dish on everything Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Disclaimer: The PEOPLE staff does not speak fluent droid and is likely making this all up.)

BB-8 said (beeped?) he loved getting the chance to meet Prince William and Harry on the red carpet at the London premiere of the film and that he does not get along with his evil counterpart BB-9E.

As for the best piece of advice fellow robot R2-D2 gave him?

“Don’t get blown up,” said the droid.

And staying true to the holiday season, BB-8 said if he had a lightsaber, it would almost certainly be red and green.

“He’s still a member of the heroes gang,” says Chapman. “He’s in there getting dirty and down with it.”

While Herring and Chapman promise fans that BB-8 will once again serve as a “comic relief” in the film, they say his role in the story is more important than ever.

“He’s a pivotal point, as the droids of Star Wars tends to be,” says Herring. “He also does a lot of stuff that we haven’t seen him do yet.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Choose Windsor for Their May Wedding

MERRY WIFE OF WINDSOR: Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle will tie the knot in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the royal residence located just outside London in leafy Berkshire.
Kensington Palace said it was Queen Elizabeth II who granted permission for the wedding to take place at the chapel, and the palace also confirmed that the royal family will foot the bill.
The choice of venue is the first sign that Harry and Meghan want to do things differently: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were married in grandeur at Westminster Abbey in London, while Prince Charles married Princess Diana in the grand St. Paul’s Cathedral in the City of London. He did, however, marry Camilla Parker Bowles at Windsor.
The choice of the chapel at Windsor means the couple is hoping for a more low-key affair away from the London crowds and amid acres of verdant countryside. Prince Harry is a regular polo player at Guards Polo Club at Windsor Great Park.
The wedding will be different in other ways, too. When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were married, Kate’s multimillionaire parents contributed to the affair and her sister Pippa Middleton — then a professional party planner

Royal Wild Child Prince Harry Prepares to Settle Down

LONDON – Prince Harry has become the star of his very own fairytale, closing the chapter on years of mad, bad – and generally naughty – behavior and starting a new life with his actress and fashion-loving fiancée Meghan Markle.
His engagement to Markle, which was revealed early Monday, finally puts an end to years of broken relationships, notably with the Zimbabwean lawyer Chelsy Davy and the British actress Cressida Bonas, and the prince’s sadness about not being able to find the right partner.

Prince Harry Shares How His Mom Princess Diana, at ‘Only 25 Years Old,’ Fought Homophobia

One of Princess Diana‘s greatest legacies was her crusade for HIV and AIDS awareness — and her pioneering efforts to break the false stigma that casual contact, such as shaking hands or hugging, can spread the disease.

On Thursday she was honored for her work when her younger son, Prince Harry, 33, accepted a posthumous award from the LGBT magazine Attitude. The Attitude Legacy Award acknowledges the groundbreaking contributions Diana made to challenging the fear that surrounded HIV and AIDS in the ’80s and ’90s.

“In April 1987, my mother was only 25 years old,” Harry said in his acceptance speech Thursday evening. “She was still finding her way in public life, but already she felt a responsibility to shine her spotlight on the people and issues that were often ignored. She knew that AIDS was one of the things that many wanted to ignore and seemed like a hopeless challenge. She knew that the misunderstanding of this relatively new disease was creating a dangerous situation when mixed with homophobia.

“People were ostracized from their communities — and sometimes from their families — simply for being ill. Staff who treated the ill, were themselves often turned away from local barbers and restaurants, even though it was proven that HIV could not be passed on from casual contact.

“And we faced the very real risk that thousands would die in the U.K. – including many young gay men of her generation – without making any progress towards treatment of the disease.

“So when that April, she shook the hand of a 32-year-old man with HIV, in front of the cameras, she knew exactly what she was doing. She was using her position as Princess of Wales — the most famous woman in the world — to challenge everyone to educate themselves; to find their compassion; and to reach out to those who need help instead of pushing them away.”

Harry has championed the legacy of his late mother by campaigning for people to take HIV tests and even taking one himself. And last year, Prince William appeared on the cover of Attitude in a landmark issue when he spoke about homophobic bullying.

Diana “was not really a gloves person,” her brother Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, told PEOPLE this summer. “She was very real and very about human contact.”

Governor General of Canada Thinks It Would Be ‘Marvelous’ If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Got Married

Add another person to the list of those helping Meghan Markle and Prince Harry someday marry!

David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, told ITV that the romance is strengthening ties between the U.K. and Canada, where the American actress films her show Suits and has adopted as a second home.

“I think it would be quite marvellous and I hope it would be quite marvellous for him and obviously it will help to bring us together,” Johnston said. “But, you know, that reflects so many of the people-to-people ties that are so strong. I think about 20% of our citizens would claim British heritage so those ties are very strong.”

Johnston said that he “didn’t know” that Markle, 36, was sitting near him at the opening ceremonies for the Invictus Games in Toronto.

“ was alone but you say, I gather, there was a young lady in the audience who was watching him with great interest,” he said.

Markle was all smiles as she cheered on the athletes in the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded service members from around the world. Meanwhile, Harry sat a few rows away next to First Lady Melania Trump whom he met with earlier in the day.

Toronto has become a special place for the couple. Harry made a secret detour from the Caribbean to spend time with Markle in her adopted hometown in December. The royal couple also spent Easter weekend together in Toronto. Harry also called Toronto a “home away from home” when he met with Johnston.

“Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there’s a real ease to their relationship,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “It just works. They are deeply happy.”

The Return of the Party Prince! Harry Meets Up with Friends at Music Festival in London

Prince Harry was just another fan in the crowd at a music festival over the weekend.

The 32-year-old royal was spotted at the British Summertime Festival in Hyde Park on Saturday night, where The Killers headlined the show. Donning a button-up blue shirt and baseball cap, Harry casually drank beer and snapped selfies with pals.

Noticeably absent from the festivities was his girlfriend of over a year, Meghan Markle. The 35-year-old actress is most likely at home in Toronto, Canada, where she films Suits.

In a recent interview with the Mail on Sunday, Harry admitted that he “didn’t want to grow up” and considered giving up his title — before deciding to create a new role for himself within the royal family.

He revealed that he considered living an ordinary life following his time in the army, calling his time in service the “best escape I’ve ever had.”

RELATED VIDEO: William and Harry Open Up About Diana Together for the First Time

 

“I felt as though I was really achieving something,” Harry said. “I have a deep understanding of all sorts of people from different backgrounds and felt I was part of a team.”

He continued, “I wasn’t a Prince, I was just Harry.”

When he decided to turn things around, Harry considered leaving the royal life behind and live as a commoner.

“I felt I wanted out but then decided to stay in and work out a role for myself,” he said, adding that his loyalty to Queen Elizabeth, his grandmother, helped him in his decision.

Still, Harry wanted to be more than just famous figure who waved to the crowds who gathered to catch a glimpse of him and his family.

“We don’t want to be just a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good,” he said.

You read that right: a whole decade ago. Yer not a young wizard anymore, Harry.

Rupert Grint Moves On From Ron, Stays In ‘Harry Potter’ Group Chat

Buckbeak, we’re not in Hogwarts anymore.

In his new Crackle series, “Snatch”— based on the movie of the same name—Rupert Grint stars as Charlie, one of a group of small-time hustlers who gets caught up in the world of organized crime. With all the drugs, heists and hijinks, it doesn’t take long to realize this isn’t the Ron Weasley we used to know.

“Charlie is quite a unique character. I don’t think I’ve actually met anyone quite like him,” Grint told The Huffington Post. “There are not many similarities between him and Ron.”

The actor, who’s also executive producing the project, opened up about getting into character, revealing his royal inspiration.

“It kind of took me a while. [I] watched a lot of Prince Harry videos in the beginning. It kind of evolved to something different,” said Grint.

Despite Grint moving on from his “Harry Potter” role, fans can take solace in the fact that the cast has left owls for a group chat on WhatsApp, which Emma Watson recently revealed.

Grint opened up about the group chat to HuffPost.

“It’s kind of the way we stay in contact. We see each other occasionally, but I haven’t seen everyone in a long time. It’s quite hard to socially see everyone, so being in the same room with everybody is usually quite surreal and not that easy. We shared such a unique experience and such a strange childhood. We’ll always kind of have that together. Again, we’re always gonna be there for each other, [and] support each other,” said Grint.

As proof that group chat is working, Grint’s “Harry Potter” sister Bonnie Wright made it out for the “Snatch” premiere recently.

Dumbledore’s Army is still rolling strong.

Harry Smith’s Last Throw

Harry Smith’s Last Throw


The War of Mlanjeni was the longest conflict in South African history until the second Anglo-Boer War. The loss of life was substantially heavier than that of the Zulu War of 1879 and the political after-effects of it were significantly greater than those that followed the Zulu War. The Zulu War has been the subject of numerous accounts but the silence surrounding the Eighth Frontier War is deafening. Harry Smith’s Last Throw fills this gap: a moving history, vividly drawn out using eye-witness accounts. The narrative is not limited to the British perspective. Xhosa accounts have been translated (many for the first time) to avoid an Anglo-centric bias. For both sides by the 8th War there was a great deal of blood to avenge and brutal killings were perpetrated by many combatants. The author provides a colorful backdrop, explaining how the Dutch East India Company came to the Cape to establish a provision station for ships on the way to its East Indies empire. Dutch Burghers settled there but the Company had no interest in Africa itself. In order to be viable farms had to be large and this created a class of independent-minded who looked increasingly to the interior of Africa, pushing the Colony&supl;s borders. The wars with the Xhosa were the result of the eventual expansion of these boundaries into Xhosa territory.

Turns Out Prince Harry Was Causing Trouble From A Very Young Age

Prince Harry’s partying days seem mostly behind him. You’re now more likely to find him working to de-stigmatize HIV testing, being the world’s best boyfriend and rescuing endangered elephants than causing a ruckus.

But in newly released hand-written letters from Princess Diana to Cyril Dickman, a steward at Buckingham Palace who became a friend, it’s clear the bad boy persona that plagued Harry’s younger years started even earlier than we thought. 

“The boys are well and are enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!” Diana wrote to Dickman in 1992, when Harry was just 8 years old.

Diana’s letters went up for auction by property and auctioneering firm Cheffins on Jan. 5, along with other, less appetizing royal collectables like a piece of Queen Elizabeth II’s 1947 wedding cake. The notes to Dickman were expected to sell between $ 372 and $ 1,118  but ended up selling for much more ― between $ 2,733 and $ 3,976 each, according to Cheffins. 

In another note included in the auction, Diana thanked Dickman for his well wishes following Harry’s birth and revealed another personal tidbit about Prince William’s affection for his new little brother.

“William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!” she wrote. 

The letters are a glimpse into royal life, and a reminder of the value of hand-written notes, and a sweet homage to the beloved princess, all in one. Now if only we had a few thousand spare pounds lying around.

Shepard Fairey and Debbie Harry Join Forces for Obey

Two of pop culture’s intrepid forces — Shepard Fairey and Blondie’s Debbie Harry are polishing up a collaboration for the artist’s Obey clothing label next fall.
Forty years to the day that Blondie made its debut at CBGB’s in the East Village, the draw for her indelible style remains intact. Fairey has described Blondie as one of his all-time favorite bands since he discovered them as a kid on pop radio. That interest only intensified as he got into punk and learned more about Blondie’s evolution from the CBGB’s scene with bands like The Ramones, and Talking Heads. Along with always appreciating Blondie’s “stylistic diversity, tackling genres such as rock, girl group, soul, disco, hip-hop and reggae, Fairey has described Harry as “an amazing vocalist, lyricist, style icon, beauty and embodiment of NYC cool.”
“Really excited” about what’s in store for the upcoming Harry-infused special-edition women’s line, Fairey said late last week, “I’ve been a Blondie fan my whole life and have collaborated with them in the past, which has been a dream come true. But working with Debbie on this project has been totally inspiring,” Fairey said. “She’s been very involved and hands-on for the whole process, just another display of her

Prince Harry Gets Heartbreakingly Honest About Dealing With Grief

Prince Harry is honoring his mother by opening up about his own grief over her death.

The prince spoke with U.K.-based television outlet ITV about how he handled the tragedy and the impact it had on his mental health.

I never really dealt with what had happened,” Harry said. “It was a lot of buried emotion. For a huge part of my life I didn’t really want to think about it.” 

The interview is part of a new documentary about his charity Sentebale, which he set up in memory of his mother. The organization, which he founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, supports orphans and other vulnerable children in Africa, many of whom are affected by HIV or AIDS.

Harry said his involvement with the initiative, which was also a cause close to Diana’s heart, helped him to eventually explore and process his grief.

“I now view life very differently from what it used to be,” he said. “I used to bury my head in the sand, and let everything around you tear you to pieces.”

Harry isn’t alone in how he managed his emotions. Many struggle with opening up about how they’re feeling following a tragic event and research shows people often yearn for the lost person long after they’re gone

Of course, there isn’t one perfect way to grieve ― everyone’s process is different ― but experts say that talking about and acknowledging your sadness can help. And if it gets too overwhelming, it’s never a bad idea to seek professional support.

Harry also opened up about his mother’s passing at an event honoring athletes dealing with mental health challenges.

“You know, I really regret not ever talking about it,” Harry said, adding that he only recently started focusing on his psychological well-being.

Props to the prince for sharing his own experiences as a way to help others. We’d wager that his mother would be proud.

Harry Potter Stage Show May Come to Broadway in 2018

The producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the stage play that tells the story of Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s children, are in the “final stages” of talks to bring the show to Broadway beginning in the spring of 2018.

Announced on Pottermore, plans to bring Cursed Child to New York are currently underway, with talks already ongoing to bring the show to life in a “totally transformed” Lyric Theatre, which currently hosts the Cirque du Soleil Paramour show. The Cursed Child,

, opened in London’s West End earlier this year.

The multi-million dollar renovation plans would alter the theater to accommodate 1,500 attendants rather than its current 1,900 in order to allow the show’s producers to properly bring the stage show’s intricate set design to life.

ORG The surgeon, who attended us both, loudly admired our mutual delicacy in sparing arteries and vital organs: but a bullet cuts a rougher pathway than the neat steel blade, and I was prostrate when the prince came to press my hand on his departure for his quarters at Laibach. The utterly unreasonable nature of a duel was manifested by his declaring to me, that he was now satisfied I did not mean to insult him and then laugh at him. We must regard it rather as a sudorific for feverish blood and brains. I felt my wound acutely, seeing his brisk step when he retired. Having over-thrown me bodily, it threw my heart back to its first emotions, and I yearned to set eyes on my father, with a haunting sense that I had of late injured him and owed him reparation. It vanished after he had been in my room an hour, to return when he had quitted it, and incessantly and inexplicably it went and came in this manner. He was depressed. I longed for drollery, relieved only by chance allusions to my beloved one, whereas he could not conceal his wish to turn the stupid duel to account.

Up to this point, fans of the books and movies have analyzed the story so much that they’ve come up with a number of theories that are so crazy they have to be true.

As it turns out, nope, they’re just crazy. Here are the theories that must not be named anymore:

Ron Weasley is not a time-traveling Albus Dumbledore.

No! Not this one!

In the books, there are a number of physical descriptions and plot points that show major similarities between Dumbledore and Ron, but after a fan asked about it, Rowling confirmed they aren’t the same person:

Bloody hell …

Also, Draco Malfoy is not a werewolf and Snape is not a vampire. 

 

What? OK, she’s just pouring it on now.

Because of their physical descriptions and some peculiar activities in the books, Draco Malfoy and Snape were thought to secretly be a werewolf and a vampire, respectively. Draco’s physical changes that occur in the book are seen as the result of a werewolf curse by some, and Snape’s pale complexion was viewed as evidence he was in fact undead. Unfortunately, these are not the case either:

After that, Rowling was done crushing all our Muggle dreams for one day.

Don’t be too disappointed, though. Rowling has also confirmed some other fan theories, and with her new play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” coming to the stage, you can be sure more theories are on the way.

Harry Styles Falls Again Because It’s The Story Of His Life

Reuniting his butt with the floor once again, Harry Styles took another tumble at a concert in Toronto on Thursday.

It’s just the latest chapter in Style’s epic battle against gravity, which seems to have been going on for a while now:

Recently, during a time we assume he wasn’t falling to the seat of his pants, Styles and One Direction released the video for their new single. It’s called “Drag Me Down.”

Yeah, “Drag Me Down.” Has there ever been a more appropriate song title in the history of music?

This Owl Ring Bearer Is A ‘Harry Potter’ Fan’s Dream Come True

This dashing ring bearer was a real hoot.

Groom Shaun Palmer surprised his bride Adele and all of their guests by having an owl named Bilbo carry the rings down the aisle at their July 2014 wedding in Roker, Sunderland, United Kingdom. But it wasn’t until the video was posted to YouTube on Friday that it began making the rounds online.

Internet folks have pointed out that this bird bears a striking resemblance to the late Hedwig of Harry Potter fame.

Palmer told The Huffington Post that he first came up with the idea to have an owl ring bearer after seeing it advertised at a wedding show a couple years before their nuptials and thought it would be an awesome way to surprise his bride. He said, though, that his best man Chris — who was tasked with intercepting Bilbo at the altar — wasn’t totally on-board with the plan at first.

“I actually booked the owl before I’d even spoke to Chris, my best man,” he said. “When I did phone him, I said, ‘How do you feel about an owl landing on your arm to bring our wedding rings down the aisle?’ He said something along the lines of ‘no chance’ to which I replied, ‘Well, it’s a bit late now — I’ve booked it!'”

2015-05-26-1432670816-8819728-bestmanowl526.jpg

The groom told HuffPost that the owl was both “brilliant” and “so well-behaved.”

After the ceremony, the handler stayed with Bilbo so the guests could meet him and take pictures.

“It gave a great bit of extra theater to the day,” Palmer said.

Julianne Hough Was An Extra In ‘Harry Potter,’ But We Actually Already Knew That

Julianne Hough took part in Us Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” feature, in which the magazine asks celebrities to list 25 interesting or random facts about themselves that the public probably doesn’t know about them. But Hough’s list comes up short, because there’s at least one fact we definitely already knew:

11. I was a Gryffindor in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” but don’t blink or you’ll miss me!

While this isn’t news to us, maybe it’s news to you. And there really isn’t a bad time to revisit a moment in Harry Potter history. Hough’s role’s as a Hogwarts student was blink and you’ll miss it, indeed. She can be seen sitting near Hermoine (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) while they cheer on Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) at a Quidditch match.

juliannehoughharrypotter

Hough has actually spoken her appearance in beloved 2001 children’s movie on more than one occasion.

“Oh, yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m still such a big fan. I always go and watch the midnight showing, so I’m excited to see it,” she told Parade magazine in 2011 when asked if the ending of the film series felt bittersweet.

She added, “I might get in trouble for this, but I actually stole the Gryffindor scarf that I had as a memento. I was like, ‘I have to keep this scarf!’”

Then in 2012, during an appearance on “Live With Kelly,” Hough brought up the scarf story again and admitted that while filming the movie as an 11-year-old she fell hard for Harry Potter himself.

“I was kind of in love, especially with Daniel Radcliffe. I wrote him a love note. It was Valentine’s Day and I got him the Valentino Beanie Baby. I never heard back,” she said.

You can also see Hough in this deleted scene from the first “Harry Potter” movie:

This Possible ‘Harry Potter’ Couple Would Ruin Harry Potter’s Childhood Even More

Harry Potter might want to keep away from the latest edition of The Quibbler.

Following a recent Instagram post, the online speculation is that Harry’s dad, James Potter, aka actor Robbie Jarvis, may be dating Luna Lovegood, aka actress Evanna Lynch. And if Harry’s childhood wasn’t ruined before, it definitely is now:




That photo isn’t all, though. Despite the fact that E! wasn’t given conformation from Jarvis’ reps that the two were dating, other cute photos just seem to add to the evidence. Take this one for example:

Trying on hats with @msevylynch. Which one of us looks better? #fancy

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on




And check out this one where they apparently took Polyjuice Potion and transformed into owls. Nice try, James and Luna, but we know it’s you:

Owls!

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on

So why is this such a big deal? OK, first, let’s skip past the fact that in “Harry Potter,” Luna came in during Ginny’s year and is younger than Harry. Just forget that. But didn’t Harry also take Luna to Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party? Now his dad might be taking her out? Oh, and what about Lily Potter, James? What about Lily?

Voldemort has done some pretty messed up things to Harry Potter before, but this might be crossing the line.

That being said, we wish all the happiness in the world to the potential couple because they are just actors and Harry Potter isn’t real. Or that’s what people want you to believe, anyway.

Representatives for the actors did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment.

Harry Styles Shows That Being Charitable Is Really ‘What Makes You Beautiful’

Harry Styles can be a pretty amazing guy — and that’s not just because he has fabulous hair.

Though One Direction has been busy performing around the world as part of the “On The Road Again” tour, Styles took time out last week to visit students from the Lalela Project, an organization that provides arts education to at-risk youth in Cape Town, South Africa, according to the group’s Instagram page.

The 21-year-old reportedly just wanted to do some good.

Harry decided to go to the Lalela Project all by himself and he really impressed kids and workers there,” a source told the Sun UK, adding that “Harry could easily have spent extra time at his hotel relaxing but he really wants to give back when the band are traveling the world.”

The source told the Sun that Styles chatted with the students and gave them tickets to the band’s show in the city. While on stage, the singer even wore a Lalela luggage tag during the show, according to the organization’s Facebook page.

Despite his hectic touring life, Styles wanted to pay his dues to initiatives that were helping the people who needed it most, the source said.

“This tour hasn’t been easy for the boys but [Harry] knows their lives are far better than many of their fans’ and kids being helped by projects like this.”

Styles’ visit with the Lalela students was a compassionate move, but the 21-year-old is no stranger to giving back.

Back in 2013, the singer and his bandmate, Liam Payne, participated in a charity date auction, in which fans could bid on an evening out with the two, the Press Association reported. The money from the auction went to go to Trekstock, an organization that supports young people with cancer.

Earlier that year, the band also recorded a cover of Blondie’s “One Way or Another” to support Comic Relief, a charity that works to tackle poverty and social injustice.

The ‘Harry Potter’ Cast Had The Most Magical Reunion Ever

We solemnly swear that this is amazing.

Draco Malfoy was hanging out with the Weasleys in West Hollywood recently and decided to share the Hogwarts reunion on Instagram for all us Muggles to see. Ten points to Slytherin for that!

Joining actor Tom Felton in the photo were Rupert Grint, otherwise known as Ron, actress Bonnie Wright, perhaps better known as Ginny, and actor James Phelps, otherwise known as Fred. And something tells us they weren’t drinking butter beers:

Kim K stood me up. Outnumbered by 3 Weasleys. Ugh.

A photo posted by Tom Felton (@t22felton) on




In the caption, Felton also made light of Kim Kardashian’s new look, which has been compared to his in the “Harry Potter” movies. Felton previously told HuffPost Entertainment that Kardashian would be a Slytherin at Hogwarts, so apparently he was spot on. Phelps also shared a reunion photo of his own with a caption reading, “Mini family reunion…and Tom”:

Mini family reunion…and Tom. Great night with the gang

A photo posted by James Phelps (@jamesphelps_pictures) on



Accio good times, right? Though the group didn’t share many details of what they were up to, we’re guessing it was mischief managed.

Universal Orlando went by the book when creating live shows for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley

When it came to creating authentic live entertainment for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, the folks at Universal Orlando Entertainment really went by the book.

“Which book?,” you ask. “Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secret.” A single sentence from that 1998 J.K. Rowling novel, to be exact. Where — as The Boy Who Lived was exploring “The Burrow” (i.e., the Weasley family home) — Harry noticed that …

… the old radio next to the sink had just announced that coming up was “Witching Hour, with the popular singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck.”

2015-01-29-Celestina3.jpg

And with that one line of text, Universal Entertainment finally found a solution for a challenge that had been plaguing the Diagon Alley project. Which was how to naturalistically add a live entertainment element to this ambitious expansion of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World.

“Whenever we’re developing new lands for our theme parks, we always look for ways to turn streets into stages. Give our guests the chance to come around a corner and suddenly stumble upon this seemingly spontaneous moment of entertainment,” Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment – Creative Development for Universal Orlando Resort, explained during a recent interview. “That’s why Jake and Elwood regularly roll through Universal Studios Florida in their Bluesmobile. So that the Blues Brothers can then be seen presenting a live street show out on our New York backlot. Or why the Whos carol around Seuss Landing whenever we’re celebrating Grinchmas at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.”

But when it came to Diagon Alley, Aiello and the Universal Entertainment team were presented with a unique challenge. Given that this expansion of The Wizarding World was supposed to authentically recreate what had previously been seen in the Harry Potter films and described in J.K. Rowling’s fiction, they were now dealing with a full-scale environment that was going to be so rich & hyper-detailed that it could potentially upstage any attempts at live entertainment.

2015-01-29-Celestina4.jpg

“But once we came across that line in ‘Chamber of Secrets’ which revealed that Molly Weasley was a Celestina Warbeck fan, that was our get-out-of-jail-free card. Here was a character that J.K. herself had dreamed up, this famous singing sorceress. And wouldn’t it make sense that — at some point in her fabled career — that Celestina would drop by Diagon Alley, the place where all of the witches & wizards of London went to do their shopping?,” Aiello continued. “So we took this idea to J.K. And she was so supportive of this idea that she actually provided us with the titles of several songs that Celestina could possibly perform while she was doing a live remote from Diagon Alley for the Wizarding Wireless Network.”

Mind you, once Rowling had provided Aiello and the team with titles like “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” and “Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here,” it was then up to Universal Entertainment to turn these Potter-centric concepts into musical numbers that singers could actually perform. Which is why they then turned to Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary, the talented team behind Broadway’s “First Date.”

“And from the moment we told Michael and Alan that J.K. saw Celestina as this Shirley Bassey-like performer who worked with three back-up singers, they immediately knew what to do with the songs for this character,” Patrick Braillard, Diagon Alley’s show director, recalled. “They wrote us these great jazz-fusion numbers that only a true diva like Lena Horne or Bette Midler could pull off. Which is why — when people are wandering around Diagon Alley and then happen upon Celestina performing with her Banshees — they’re completely blown away. This show just knocks their socks off.”

2015-01-29-Celestina2.jpg

Of course, if you’re looking to wow an audience with a seemingly impromptu live show, you first need a proper stage for your performers to appear on. Which is why — as Universal Creative was initially designing Diagon Alley — they deliberately created a corner in Carkitt Market where Celestina and her Banshees could then make a dramatic entrance by coming down this long staircase.

“That space really serves this Wizarding Wireless Network broadcast well. Which is kind of ironic, given that Celestina and her Banshees wasn’t actually the first live show that Universal Entertainment wrote for Diagon Alley,” Aiello said. “We had this concept that we’d originally pitched for Hogsmeade. One where we wanted to establish this troupe of tale tellers who would wander about The Wizarding World and tell Universal Orlando visitors about The Boy Who Lived. But since there were no characters like this in either the Potter books or movies, it just didn’t seem authentic to go ahead with this particular entertainment idea – which is why this creative concept kind of fell off the table for Hogsmeade.”

Ah, but all that changed in 2007 with the publication of “The Tales of Beedle the Bard.” For in the foreword of this collection of Wizarding World fairytales, J.K. revealed that there was a Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts.

2015-01-29-Celestina5.jpg

“And once we came across that reference in ‘Beedle the Bard,’ we were like ‘A-ha! Let’s latch onto that. Let’s figure out how we can expand upon this idea and then somehow make it work for Diagon Alley,’ ” Michael continued. “And in the end, what we decided to do was invent this traveling troupe of players who had trained at the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts who now do street theater. And to then connect this new piece of Diagon Alley entertainment with the book that had inspired it, we decided to have these traveling players perform selected stories from ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard.’ Which is kind of The Wizarding World’s version of Grimm’s Fairytales or Aesop’s Fables.”

What made this particular entertainment concept somewhat hard to pull off was that most Universal Orlando visitors only knew ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’ from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Which had featured a stylized animated version of one of this book’s stories, “The Tale of the Three Brothers.”

“And since — whenever possible — we want to create some sort of visual continuity between the Harry Potter films and our theme park version of The Wizarding World, we decided to have those visiting members of the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts present a troubadour version of ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ using puppets that looked just like the animated characters had in Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” Aiello explained. “Thankfully, Michael Currey Design was up to the specific design challenges of this project. They created these terrific-looking, lightweight, hand sculpted puppets that the performers could just pull out of a trunk and then manipulate right there in front of the audience.”

2015-01-29-Celestina6.jpg

And to insure that this group of traveling players would have then a selection of tales to tell whenever they next appeared in Diagon Alley, Universal Entertainment decided to turn another story from “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” into a piece of street theater. And this performance piece — “The Fountain of Fair Fortune” — also features some beautifully-detailed, Michael Curry-designed puppets.

“This is what we’ve tried to do with the entire Wizarding World project. Find these kernels of content that J.K. has written that we can then expand in full-sized pieces of entertainment that are just as rich and vivid as the fiction she created,” Aiello concluded. “That — in a nutshell — is what I think the Universal difference is. That — when we work with other people’s intellectual property — we’re just as passionate, enthusiastic & dedicated to these characters and their stories as the original creators are. Universal Orlando always strives to put these IPs we’ve been entrusted with in the best possible light.”

And speaking of dedication: Tomorrow, the most dedicated Wizarding World fans in the world will be descending on Universal Orlando for the 2nd annual “Celebration of Harry Potter.” Hosted by Universal Orlando Resort and Warner Bros., this three day-long event will feature Q&A sessions with Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) and other stars of the Harry Potter films. Not to mention a live duelling demonstration led by the world’s only Wand Combat choreographer, Paul Harris. Plus the “Celebration of Harry Potter” Expo, which features interactive exhibits from Warner Bros., Pottermore, Harry Potter: The Exhibition and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, where Universal Orlando guests will then have the opportunity to try on the Sorting Hat.

2015-01-29-Celestina7.jpg

But given that this will be the first time that many Harry Potter fans will have the chance to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley (which officially opened to the public back on July 8, 2014), just be aware that there will probably be record crowds in Carkitt Market all weekend long. As these J.K. Rowling fans check out the live stage shows that Universal Entertainment built around Celestina Warbeck & her Banshees and the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Watch Harry Belafonte’s Powerful Speech On Social Injustice

Harry Belafonte was this year’s recipient of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award during the sixth annual Governors Awards on Saturday night. The honorary Oscar is Belafonte’s first, and the 87-year-old singer, actor and social activist used the award as an opportunity to discuss Hollywood’s complicated history with racial injustice:

In 1935, at the age of 8, sitting in a Harlem theater, I watched with awe and wonder incredible feats of the white superhero, Tarzan of the Apes. Tarzan was a sight to see. This porcelain Adonis, this white liberator, who could speak no language, swinging from tree to tree, saving Africa from the tragedy of destruction by a black indigenous population of inept, ignorant, void-of-any-skills population, governed by ancient superstitions with no heart for Christian charity. Through this film the virus of racial inferiority — of never wanting to be identified with anything African — swept into the psyche of its youthful observers. And for the years that followed, Hollywood brought abundant opportunity for black children in their Harlem theaters to cheer Tarzan and boo Africans. […] But these encounters set other things in motion. It was an early stimulus to the beginning of my rebellion. Rebellion against injustice and human distortion and hate. How fortunate for me that the performing arts became the catalyst that fueled my desire for social change.

Belafonte went on to cite “The Defiant Ones,” “Schindler’s List,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “12 Years A Slave” and Sidney Poitier as moving the discussion forward in a positive way throughout the last 60 years. But he closed his speech with a call to arms for all of Hollywood, now and in the future:

I really wish I could be around for the rest of this century, to see what Hollywood does with the rest of the century. Maybe, just maybe, it could be civilization’s game changer. After all, as Paul Robeson said, artists are the radical voice of civilization. Each and every one of you in this room, with your gift and power and skills, could perhaps change the way in which our global humanity mistrusts itself. Perhaps we as artists and visionaries for what’s better in the human heart and the human soul could influence citizens everywhere in the world to see the better side of who and what we are as a species.

From left to right, that’s rugby coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and sports psychologist and Massey University professor emeritus Gary Hermansson. But it’s the guy behind them that makes this picture so special.

Prince Harry was attending the event with Prince William, who can be spotted in the far right of the photo. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was seated to Prince William’s right, but you can only see a little of her hair in this image.

The royals are embracing the modern age of photography. Earlier this month, the two princes snapped a selfie with British entrepreneur Jamal Edwards.

And last week, the Queen herself got in on the act with an epic photobomb, also snapped at the Commonwealth Games.

Don’t Act Your Age – Harry, Tonto, Paul and You

At age 44, the maverick satirical filmmaker Paul Mazursky wrote and directed Harry & Tonto, chronicled an old man’s unexpected late life struggle against society’s selfish coercive pressures to relocate, institutionalize, and infantilize him back into a state of docile dependency. This week, 40 years later, Mazursky, at age 84, himself, became the ultimate victim of aging but not the victim of ageism.

He beat ageism by not allowing others define him as “past his prime,” “last year’s model,”
“over-the-hill,” and any of the other euphemisms aspiring middle-aged combats use to push aside those who appear to block their own career paths. Robert McFadden wrote in his New York Times obituary:

Mr. Mazursky was a show-business rarity, almost never out of work in a run of six decades that began as a stage and screen actor in the early 1950s and was still adding credits at the time of his death… For all that, there was an ageless quality about him. Associates said he had boundless energy, the rapid patter of a stand-up comic and an actor’s gift for memory.

This was the parallel goal of Mazurky’s character Harry Combs of Harry & Tonto — the roles so poignantly played by 55-year-old Art Carney, who earned an Oscar for “Best Actor.” As a retired school teacher in his 70s, widower Harry was living in a decaying building where his apartment was a museum of memories — all artifacts of a life that had past. His existence was defined by his daily routine errands where he shared the sarcastic bitterness towards present society with other lonely disenfranchised seniors, by his nostalgia for his lost wife and profession, and finally by his loyal companion — a cat he named Tonto.

The other “lone rangers” he visits on the frontiers of old age search for lost purpose in their lives. They are dismayed over the changes in their lives ranging from lost loved ones to lost careers, ranting about those with greater control who seemed to be the source of their problems, from street muggers and politicians to their own offspring. At first we laugh at their eccentricities, but by the end of the film, they are no longer cyphers in an urban landscape but familiar friends with rich life dramas and current interests we have come to appreciate.

Harry’s opening soliloquy follows a mugging scene, a near hit by a speeding motorist, as he hums the tune “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” to his friend Tonto.

Would you believe it Tonto? Mugged four times this month… It was a wonderful neighborhood. It’s running down. Where would I go and live? I still know a lot of people around here. If you know people, that’s home.

Soon after he drifts to sleep, only to be forcibly evicted by police as a wrecking ball is about to raze his crumbling home.

Freed from this exile to memories, Harry begins an odyssey through the highly stressed, miserable, middle-aged lives of his well-educated children as they struggle with unhappy relationships and careers along with the distress of various other frustrated younger people — all eager to sell Harry things he doesn’t need and to warehouse him away from the mainstream. He wants to live on his own without controls. He wants to travel to new places. He wants to dance with an old lost girlfriend, Jessie, now suffering dementia — but who has flashing moments of recall with him when they dance. He wants to say farewell to the corpse of his lonely close friend, Jacob. He bonds with young people along the way and wants to return to teaching. Yet, with each effort, he is patronized and insulted by middle-aged people in airports, casinos, nursing homes, and morgues as he travels to visit friends. Harry is labelled as a bother to them and a confused, stubborn old man. The scolding refrain of these ageist antagonists as they attack Harry’s defiant desire for independence is “Harry, act your age!”

At same time, Harry also encounters many happy, healthy seniors engaged and enthusiastic about life, ranging from a used car salesman, an organic drug salesman, a Native American medicine man, and a cat sitter. Their retort to the “act your age” admonitions was always “I love my work!”

While we mourn the painful deaths of his close friend Jacob and his loyal buddy Tonto, by the end, we see that through Harry’s odyssey, he has returned to life in the present — regaining his wit and optimism. On the beaches of Santa Monica, as he writes to an old New York friend about his new life as a school tutor, he chases a cat identical to his lost pal Tonto — that takes him to a little girl on the beach who invites him to help her with her sandcastle. We once laughed at Harry, cried with Harry, but now we laugh with him. By the end, the once cynical Harry has returned to the mainstream of life and become the happiest character in the film.

Similarly, one can only imagine Mazursky happy and fulfilled. Soon after Harry & Tonto came out, film critic Richard Corliss reflecting on Blume in Love, I Love You Alice B. Toklas, and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice wrote for the New York Times, that Mazursky had “created a body of work unmatched in contemporary American cinema for its originality and cohesiveness.” That was before he delivered such landmark social satires as An Unmarried Woman, Moscow on the Hudson, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, Scenes from A Mall, and Enemies: A Love Story, to name just a few classics of the 1980s before even considering his continuing contributions to biting social satire such as Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. He loved his work and refused to act his age.

Harry’s triumphant mission to be recognized as independent, intelligent contributor through late life was Mazursky’s own game plan. Other landmark films such as Sunset Boulevard or On Golden Pond show surrender to the ravages of age. The songbook of aging is vast but the lyrics offer no answer except the silent suffering of loss: “Sunrise, Sunset” (Fiddler on the Roof); “Turnaround Little Girl” (Perry Como); “When I Was 17” (Frank Sinatra); “The Circle Game” (Joni Mitchell); “No Time Left for You” (The Guess Who); “Time is on My Side” (Rolling Stones); “When I’m 64” (Beatles); “Hello in There” (John Prine); Your Were the Wind Beneath my Feet (Bette Midler). Mazursky offered a battle cry against age — don’t let your spirit die until the machine gives out.

Dylan Thomas advised, “Do not go gentle into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Many of us struggle with the cruel realities of aging through fear, avoidance, denial and spoofing, but few of us do it at all at once as Mazursky did in celluloid as well as in real life.

As a 20-year-old watching this film with my parents at a suburban Philadelphia theater, I came to further appreciate the later-life needs of seniors, including my parents — my parents as they resisted hasty late-life agendas scripted for them by callous health care providers and other impatient institutions. As a management scholar, I presented research that showed that workers in late life — including even CEOs — have much to offer through their elevated work ethic, accumulated life wisdom, insightful judgment, and mentoring spirit. Truly one of my “oldest” friends, financier Albert H. Gordon continued active through his final days at age 107, with his portfolio up 15 percent in final year of life, 2009, with the markets in turmoil… as well as he had done in 1929. His friend, former Goldman CEO John Whitehead at 92 continues active as well, as his fellow financier and fellow hero in World War II from Normandy Beach, Maurice (Hank) Greenberg, who heads the vibrant CV Starr at age 89. We could add to that the still very active and wise Jack Bogle (85), founder of Vanguard, or the active William Donaldson (83), our 27th Chairman of the SEC. Surely we have seen in the arts and in politics parallel priceless septuagenarians, octogenarians, and nonagenarians as choreographer Martha Graham (97) ; President Ronald Reagan (in office at age 78); Frank Lautenberg as senator until he was 89; and revered diplomatic Averill Harriman (94). Now how could someone seriously question 66-year-old Hillary Clinton’s candidacy on age concerns?

Dignity, independence, and continued contribution are easily as important to us as time for relaxation. Stress reduction is important at all ages. Attentive care for the disabled is vital for all ages but warehousing healthy older people does not reduce stress, and causes injustice plus waste. We need to reconsider our overly therapeutic society’s commercial push for convalescence and infantilizing recreation. Thus, for the last 34 years, I’ve required all my MBA students, largely aspiring leaders in their mid-20 to mid-30s, to view Paul Mazursky’s Harry & Tonto to see the world through the eyes of someone decades older.
