Back in 1997 I stayed up way too late one night to watch a quirky little independent movie on one of the cable movie channels.  A little girl named Scarlett Johansson was in it and I thought she was so amazing in the movie.  That movie was Manny & Lo and from that night on, I was a fan.  I hadn’t seen the movie in awhile but I watched it as I screencapped it and it’s still very quirky and Scarlett is still amazing in it (and how adorable was she?!).  I’ve added nearly 1000 captures to the gallery and this means that we now have DVD quality screencaptures of all available Scarlett movies!  Any votes on what I should work on next for the gallery?

The archive of screencaptures for Scarlett’s films is nearly complete!  Tonight, I’ve added just over 1500 screencaptures of Vicky Cristina Barcelona which, as I’m sure you all know, had an Oscar winning performance by Penelope Cruz .  The movie was heavily advertised as being a romantic comedy but I found it to be rather light on the humor.  Overall, it was a very entertaining movie and Scarlett looks so amazingly beautiful in it.  Very natural and fresh – and simply gorgeous.

In my continuing quest to complete the DVD screencaptures for all of Scarlett’s movies, I have added 700 from The Spirit – including menus and a making of featurette.  While not one of my favorite movies, it is visually stunning and Scarlett looks amazing!

While perusing the gallery, I noticed that we were lacking DVD quality screencaptures of The Other Boleyn Girl.  This has now been remedied with the addition of nearly 2000 captures including the movie, featurettes, and deleted scenes.  I’m expecting my copies of Vicky Cristina Barcelona and The Spirit tomorrow so screencaptures of those will be up soon!

Some new information from EW.com:

EW has confirmed that Scarlett Johansson’s first directorial effort, a movie short starring Kevin Bacon, has been left on the cutting room floor of the upcoming anthology film New York, I Love You. But, contrary to the many Internet rumors, it’s not because the footage was unwatchable. “It’s not a bad piece at all,” says one insider on the film. “In fact, I quite liked it.”

So why axe Scarlett’s piece? It seems her somber story about an obsessive-compulsive man who only finds peace when he reaches Coney Island and buys a hot dog just didn’t jive with the rest of the shorts. “It’s shot in black and white and there’s very little dialogue or interpersonal relationships,” explains the insider. “It just didn’t work in the context of the movie.”

Unfortunately it appears that the Scarlett directed segment has been cut out from the theatrical version of New York, I Love You. NyPost.com reports – but please take the so-called insider quotes as grain of salt. Early reviews of Scarlett’s segment were positive and we know how Page Six likes to stir up controversy.

Scarlett Johansson’s dream of being a director was dashed on her first try.

Johansson — who’s said in the past she’d prefer to direct rather than act — helmed a segment for the upcoming movie New York, I Love You, a series of intertwined love stories shot by several auteurs, including Brett Ratner and Natalie Portman.

But unfortunately for Johansson, her segment, starring Kevin Bacon and shot in black and white, was deemed “unwatchable,” sources said.

“It was really bad, so it was cut,” one insider told Page Six. Andrei Zvyagintsev’s segment starring Carla Gugino and Goran Visnjic was also cut from the final edit.

But the film’s producer, Emmanuel Benbihy, told us Johansson’s bit ended up in the scrapheap not because it was bad, but because “the story did not specifically involve an interpersonal relationship, and it was conceptualized to be filmed in black and white — both of which were extreme departures from the other films.”

The play is still in previews at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre, but writer Dan Gordon is already eyeing a film version of Irena’s Vow, and he’s got a particular star in mind: Scarlett Johansson. Gordon, author of the screenplays for movies such as Passenger 57, Wyatt Earp and The Hurricane, told The New York Times that initial overtures have been made to Johansson to play World War II heroine Irena Gut Opdyke in an independent feature film version that he plans to adapt and direct himself this fall.

Tovah Feldshuh is playing Irena on Broadway in a performance in which she shifts from an old woman narrating her own story to flashback scenes as an 18-year-old Polish Catholic teenager. During the German occupation of Poland, Irena was forced to work as head housekeeper for a prominent Nazi major. During her two years of service, she risked her life in order to save the lives of 12 Jewish refugees whom she secretly took under her care.
