SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Heinz Field

Heinz Field is a football stadium located in the North Shore neighborhood of Pittsburgh, United States. It serves as the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League, the Pittsburgh Panthers college football team; the stadium opened in 2001, after the controlled implosion of the teams' previous home, Three Rivers Stadium. Heinz Field is named for the locally based H. J. Heinz Company, which purchased the naming rights in 2001. Funded in conjunction with PNC Park and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the $281 million stadium stands along the Ohio River, on the Northside of Pittsburgh in the North Shore neighborhood; the stadium was designed with the city of Pittsburgh's history of steel production in mind, which led to the inclusion of 12,000 tons of steel into construction. Ground for the stadium was broken in June 1999 and the first football game was hosted in September 2001; the stadium's natural grass surface has been criticized throughout its history, but Steelers ownership has kept the grass after lobbying from players and coaches.

Attendance for the 68,400 seat stadium has sold out for every Steelers home game, a streak which dates back to 1972. A collection of memorabilia from the Steelers and Panthers of the past can be found in the Great Hall; the stadium has hosted two outdoor hockey games: the 2011 NHL Winter Classic between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals, the 2017 NHL Stadium Series game between the Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers. The venue has hosted numerous concerts; the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Pirates shared Three Rivers Stadium from 1970 to 2000. After discussions over the Pirates building a full-time baseball park, a proposal was made to renovate Three Rivers Stadium into a full-time football facility. Though met with negative reaction from Steelers ownership, the proposal was used as a "fallback position" that would be used if discussions for a new stadium failed. Steelers ownership stated that failing to build a new stadium would hurt the franchise's chances of signing players who might opt to sign with other teams, such as the other three teams in the Steelers division who had all built new football-only stadiums.

In June 2001, the H. J. Heinz Company purchased the naming rights to the stadium. Per the deal, Heinz will pay the Steelers a total of $57 million through 2021. Despite Heinz announcing its acquisition of Kraft Foods Group to form Kraft Heinz Company in 2015, the stadium's name will remain Heinz Field. A sales tax increase was proposed to fund three projects: Heinz Field, PNC Park, an expansion of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. After the rejection of this proposal in a 1997 referendum known as the "Regional Renaissance Initiative", the city developed the alternate funding proposal Plan B. Controversial, the proposal was labeled Scam B by opponents; the Steelers' pledge toward the new stadium was criticized for being too little after it was raised from $50 million to $76.5 million. Other local government members criticized the $281 million of public money allocated for Plan B. One member of the Allegheny Regional Asset District board called the use of tax dollars "corporate welfare"; the plan, totaling $809 million, was approved by the Allegheny Regional Asset District board on July 9, 1998, with $233 million allotted for Heinz Field.

Shortly after Plan B was approved, the Steelers made a deal with Pittsburgh city officials to stay in the city until at least 2031. The total cost of Heinz Field was $281 million. HOK Sport designed the stadium. HOK Sport's project manager for the project, Melinda Lehman, said that the Rooney family asked for the stadium's design to "acknowledge the history of Pittsburgh and bring in an element of looking forward, this is where Pittsburgh is going." In order to accomplish this, HOK Sport used steel externally. The stone used in Heinz Field's design is artificial. Of the glass used in the stadium's design, Lehman said, "The glass is a more modern building element, which ties into a lot of the buildings in Pittsburgh and gives great views of the surrounding areas." The Steelers and Panthers have their own locker rooms, which differ in size based on the number of players each team is permitted to dress for each game. The visitor facilities are modeled after the home locker rooms' design; as with its predecessor, Heinz Field's culinary service provider is Aramark.

A bronze statue of Steelers founder Art Rooney, similar to those located outside PNC Park, was moved 100 feet from its previous position outside Three Rivers Stadium. In addition, a statue of a Pitt Panther over a paved depiction of Pitt's Cathedral of Learning was placed outside Gate A. Upon opening in 2001, Heinz Field's 27 by 96 foot Sony JumboTron was the largest scoreboard in the NFL. In 2007, ESPN named the "tipping" of the oversized Heinz ketchup bottles atop the scoreboard one of the top ten touchdown celebrations in the NFL. Ground was broken for Heinz Field on June 18, 1999, at a ceremony co-hosted by the Steelers and the University of Pittsburgh; the stadium was constructed by Hunt Construction Mascaro Corporation. The two companies directed 1,400 workers over two years, in which there were no construction accidents or lawsuits; the stadium is inspected yearly, along with PNC Park, by Chronicle Consulting, LLC, for structural defects and maintenance. The first event held at Heinz Field was a concert hosted by the band'N Sync

Angel (1937 film)

Angel is a 1937 American comedy-drama film produced and directed by Ernst Lubitsch from a screenplay by Samson Raphaelson and Frederick Lonsdale. It was adapted by Russell Medcraft from the play Angyal by Melchior Lengyel; the music score was by Frederick Hollander, Werner R. Heymann and John Leipold with additional music by Gioacchino Rossini from The Barber of Seville; the cinematography was by the costume design by Travis Banton. The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures; the film stars Marlene Dietrich, Herbert Marshall and Melvyn Douglas with Edward Everett Horton, Laura Hope Crews and Herbert Mundin. The story describes a love triangle initiated by Lady Maria Barker, the comfortable but neglected wife of Sir Frederich Barker, a top-level British diplomat in the pre-World-War-II era. Although Frederick provides well for Maria and appears to love her, he has been neglecting her in favor of pursuing his busy diplomatic career. One day when he is in Geneva on important business, she secretly flies to Paris to visit the russian Grand Duchess Anna, who operates a high-class escort business.

By chance, Maria happens to meet Anthony Halton, a charming man who has lived in India for several years. Although Maria insists that their liaison remain anonymous, they are attracted to each other, they have a brief tryst, during which he calls her "Angel". Intending to have only a simple fling, she tries to end the relationship by leaving him without saying good-bye. However, he has fallen in love with her, he begins searching for her. Maria manages to avoid being seen by Halton at a horse race, but Halton happens to meet Frederick at a social gathering, the two of them make plans for Halton to have lunch together with Frederick's wife, whose identity is heretofore unknown to Halton. Unable to avoid Halton any longer, Maria pretends not to recognize him. In a moment when Maria and Halton are alone together, she makes it clear to him that she has no interest in continuing their relationship and that she considers his presence a threat to her marriage and her reputation. Still in love with her, he offers to meet her in Paris the following week.

Meanwhile, tickets have arrived for the vacation to Vienna. However, he breaks his promise to her when an opportunity arises for him to go to Geneva again for work. Frederick's mistreatment of Maria is emphasized by his decision to go to Geneva despite Maria's obvious enthusiasm about the vacation and the fact that the Geneva trip was assigned to one of Frederick's capable assistants. Disappointed by this setback, Maria changes her mind about meeting Halton again, she asks Frederick to drop her off in Paris on his way to Geneva so she can go shopping. Frederick agrees to this plan despite the fact. However, instead of continuing to Geneva, he goes to the Grand Duchess' salon to investigate. In a last-ditch attempt to save her marriage, Maria confronts Frederick in the salon and makes it clear to him that she needs more attention, she claims that Angel is another woman, in an adjoining room, but asks him to believe her without looking in the room himself. Her hope is that he will save her reputation by accepting her word but will spend more time with her in the future.

This plan fails as Frederick enters the other room, empty, but he proposes a better solution. Understanding that he has taken Maria for granted, he humbly offers to cancel his business trip and meet her at the train station to go to Vienna, allowing her to decide whether they will stay together; as he leaves the salon, she catches up to him, they walk out together to begin their vacation.
