Music industry personality Chris O’Dell is set to feature in a new documentary, Miss O’Dell: Sex, Love, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll, that will describe her time spent serving in a range of roles (PA, tour manager, ego-massager) for some of the world’s biggest musicians during the 60s and 70s.

Diane Keaton is one of Hollywood's most interesting actors, although she is frequently given disposable and caricatured roles that make her seem like a self-parody, according to Hadley Freeman, writing for The Guardian.
