FILM UPDATE : AND THE WINNER ISN'T ... GEOFFREY MOORE .. ON SELECTED RELEASE!

Currently on selected release is the new documentary film by Geoffrey Moore son of the late Sir Roger Moore, 'And The Winner Isn't' which features a host of stars including Joan along with Michael Caine, Ed Asner, Stefanie Powers, Valentino and Joanna Lumley.. 

AND THE WINNER ISN'T

Geoffrey Moore, the son of Sir Roger Moore KBE, has written and recorded a song for charity. His aim is to raise as much funds as possible and donate all proceeds to UNICEF.

Geoffrey wants celebrities to take part in a video and mime the song, but he also needs to make a documentary, for it to be eligible for ‘Academy Award for the Best Original Song’. The focus of the movie is on exploring what it takes to win an Oscar. By making it, Geoffrey will generate as much publicity as possible for the song – which should help to maximize profits for the charity.

Helping Geoffrey achieve his mission is his 18-year-old daughter Ambra. They go to Los Angeles to be close to those who know what it takes to win an Oscar. A lack of funds means they have to stay with a close friend, who lives in a classy Brentwood neighborhood, two blocks away from where OJ used to live. Although Geoffrey’s friend has an office in the house, they were only given access to her Airstream Traveler in the front garden, a sweltering aluminum tin of a trailer with a broken door.

They start calling people and the first results are not encouraging, as they fail to get past receptionists, assistants – and sometimes publicists. Their director is worried they won’t get enough material to make a compelling documentary. He wants to re-enact famous movie scenes in order to at least have something to edit.

Geoffrey calls on his friends in the music and movie industry and slowly starts getting the interviews with famous people needed for the documentary. However, the investors who promised to put money into the movie are slow to commit funds, which means the marketing budget is zero.

Meanwhile, Ambra is cold-calling publicists and agents to get celebrities to appear in the music video for the song.

Will they succeed in getting anywhere with celebrities, or is their director going to need to shoot a lot of abstract footage to fill in the gaps!

PRESS UPDATE : THE EXPRESS ... DECEMBER 30TH 2017 ..

Dame Joan Collins swears by THIS beauty tip for flawless skin

HOLLYWOOD star Dame Joan Collins shares her beauty tips.


Which beauty products do you swear by?
I love any skincare products with vitamin C and E in them. The Superlift Eye Serum from my own Timeless Beauty range really brightens up the eyes after a party, and I also swear by my Timeless Beauty hydrating lotion. It’s so important to keep my skin looking youthful. 
What are your essential cosmetics for party season? 
During the festive season, it would have to be the Paparazzi Compact Duo from my range. It’s perfect for quick touch-ups – it has a powder, a lipstick and a mirror all in one, and is great when you’re always on the go like I am. I also think the right base is important; a great foundation can make such a difference.

I also think the right base is important; a great foundation can make such a difference. 
Can you share a top beauty tip?
Soak cotton pads in a bowl of icy water and place them on your eyes for five to 10 minutes before getting ready. It refreshes your face, reduces puffiness and wakes you up! Another favourite beauty tip of mine is to apply a thin layer of Vaseline over clean teeth to prevent lipstick transferring onto them!  
Does your beauty routine change for January and the harsher winter months? 
Yes. I use much more moisturiser as well as lots of lip balm to ensure that my skin and lips are hydrated. I also add a richer cleanser to my routine. I’m very passionate about cleansing well, and always make sure that I have removed every last scrap of make-up. 
Do you wear make-up every day? 
I often go without make-up and just wear skincare products. If I do wear make-up when I’m out and about, I make sure I use good quality products that will protect, treat and moisturise the skin as well as making it look gorgeous. 
What is your top tip for getting a great finish for your hair? 
I use L’OrĂ©al Elnett hairspray for a finish that holds. I also recommend avoiding blow dries as they can be too aggressive on your hair.
How do you keep your skin looking good when filming? 
The quality of what you eat is as important as the quality of the products you use. I swear by avocados, broccoli and salmon. They do wonders for your body, both inside and out!
How do you pamper yourself? 
My favourite pamper days are spent with family, eating healthily and exercising. I enjoy taking walks or having a relaxing, no make-up day at home. 
Would you ever consider cosmetic surgery?
I tried Botox once and hated it – I hate needles!
What are your beauty and health resolutions for the New Year? 
Although I do eat healthily, my New Year’s resolution is to eat even more healthily as I recently found out that I have high cholesterol. Taking care of your body is just as important as looking after your appearance.
Who is your style icon? 
Cate Blanchett. She is truly glamorous and has an elegance that is rare these days.  
The Joan Collins Timeless Beauty range is available from 50 Marks & Spencer stores and also from joancollins beauty.com.
