Movie Spotlight: 'Notorious'

Notorious
In the last few years, biopics, namely music biopics have become a routine. It's only fitting that Notorious becomes this year's first.

For example, producers came up with films such as "Johnny Got his Gun" in 1971, which was based on the 1938 anti-war novel by Dalton Trumbo.

Today the genre has become a standard by directors, writers, and producers who have a missive for the mass audience. Although many films, such as Robert Altman's 1970 film "M*A*S*H," were thinly disguised as the Korean War to show opposition to Vietnam, just as many were made f...
