Popular actor Terrence Howard is on a slippery slope towards legal trouble. His ex-wife Michelle Howard has gone to court to get a judge to force the actor to pay her the spousal support she was awarded during their divorce settlement. Not only is his ex-wife tired of his mess, but so are his own attorneys. They are asking g to be taken off his case.
Michelle Howard recently filed legal documents claiming Terrence Howard owes her about $325,000 in spousal support. Howard is accused of having missed 49 spousal support payments which is almost all of them since the couple’s divorce was finalized in 2012. While that number is a large one, that’s not all. The Oscar nominated actor also was ordered to pay Michelle Howard’s attorney’s fees which amount to $106,000.
As Terrence Howard is dealing with his ex-wife’s demands, his own lawyers are tired of dealing with him as well. His legal team has asked the judge to relieve them of their duties on his case because there has been a “total and complete breakdown in communication.”

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.

JAMMIN’ JAZZIN’ and JIVIN’: JAZZ ON FILM
Exhibition of classic film posters now at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
In 1927, the success of Warner Bros.’ The Jazz Singer, the ﬁrst so-called “all-talkie feature,” launched not only the “sound era,” but also initiated a three decade period during which some of the greatest names in jazz music – Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman – appeared on ﬁlm.
After major ﬁlm studios began exploiting the popularity of jazz, both black and white independent ﬁlm producers began the production of black cast ﬁlms, intended for distribution to theaters catering to black audiences. However, due to the method of distribution, the ﬁlms themselves have often become lost over time and, in these cases, the paper promotional materials are the only evidence we have of their production and release.
Concern for detail, often striking use of color, stylized presentation of the ﬁlm’s content, and use (or avoidance) of the racial and ethnic stereotypes of the period make these posters worthy of our critical study, appraisal and appreciation.
Three nights of film screenings will take place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland this month, in celebration of Black History Month. FREE with a reservation. Visit www.rockhall.com to RSVP.
