911 call

FRONTENAC, Mo. Police have released the 911 call that led them to find the body of Adrienne N. Martin, a 27-year-old aspiring model, in the upscale suburban St. Louis home of ex-Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV.

Police were called on Dec. 19 by Michael Jung, a Busch family employee. Here’s a transcript of the call:

Operator: Emergency 9-1-1

Michael Jung: We need an ambulance at 2032 South Lindbergh.

O: Is that a residence or business?

MJ: Residence

O: Okay, what’s the problem?

MJ: This girl’s just not waking up.

O: Is she breathing?

MJ: We don’t know. It’s dark back there. I’m gonna get a light and try and see.

O: Okay, I’ll get them going right away.

Frontenac Police Chief Thomas Becker says the investigation continues, by his department and the county medical examiner’s office. The medical examiner says autopsy results are inconclusive. Police also confirm that August Busch IV, who’d been dating Martin, was in the home at the time.

Art Margulis, an attorney for Busch, said Martin was a friend of Busch who was visiting the home and there was “absolutely nothing suspicious” about her death.

Adrienne Nicole Martin, a former Hooters waitress, found dead at the home of August Anheuser Busch IV (born June 15, 1964) the great-great-grandson of Anheuser-Busch founder Adolphus Busch,Dec. 24- Dr. Kevin J. Martin, M.D., B.Ch., B.AO.:University College Dublin Medical School Dublin Ireland, 1971, who now lives in Cape Girardeau, Mo., said that he does not know his ex-wife’s cause of death but said that she had a heart condition called Long QT syndrome. The heart rhythm disorder can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats that can, in some cases, cause sudden death.

Martin said he discovered the syndrome when he did an electrocardiogram on his wife shortly after they wed in 2002. He said that his wife didn’t tell others of her condition and that he hasn’t discussed it with authorities.

“She refused to see a cardiologist about it,” Martin said. “I’ve always suspected she thought I was overreacting.”

He and Adrienne Martin had been separated since February 2009, and their split was anything but amicable, according to their divorce file. They had joint custody of their son.

“We also both think the world of August,” Kevin Martin said. “He is a good man.”

Martin said he had met Busch “months ago” — and that Busch personally called him on Sunday to tell him of the death.

Martin said he was in Springfield, Mo., with his former in-laws visiting his son for the holidays. He said his son was in Springfield when Adrienne died.

Twenty years after introducing the designation, first given to “Henry and June” as a solution to the stigma of the X, the NC-17 is still regarded as a box-office buzzkill. There’s a longtime perception that exhibs won’t screen an NC-17 film and that advertisers deny such pics ad space. Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution” in 2007 was one of the few recent cases where a distributor accepted that rating rather than making cuts. The National Assn. of Theater Owners polled 100 exhibitors to see how many would refuse to screen the movie, and only five said they would not. The Focus Features title went on gross to just under $5 million domestically. Ratings board chair Joan Graves admits moviegoers have a skewed perception of the NC-17 rating. “I do regret that it’s treated as the pariah of the ratings system,” she says. “All we need is one popular NC-17 rating to take that scent away.”

The Weinstein Company is moving up the release of Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling-starring Blue Valentine two days to Wednesday, December 29, reports deadline, to get a two-day head start on the New Year’s holiday weekend. Blue Valentine will open on one screen in New York and Los Angeles, with another theater added in New York on December 31, before expanding into 10 markets on January 7.

The party was for “The King’s Speech,” which, like “Blue Valentine,” is distributed by the Weinstein Company. So there Derek Cianfrance was, glass in hand, gamely chatting with every comer. “The film deserves it,” Jennifer Ehle, who plays Myrtle Logue, wife of the speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) said. “It must be such a pleasure if you’re somebody who has a film that you feel getting it out there won’t embarrass you in any way and you can be proud of it. These people –” she gestured to the various publicists and Weinstein assistants lingering over the mixed nuts at the bar -– “must have to do that all the time for things that aren’t quite deserving of it.”

As the Miramax sale closed this fall, the Weinsteins were put in touch with Miramax’s new chief executive Mike Lang by Jim Wiatt, the former chief executive of talent agency William Morris who knows all three men.Miramax, which is newly owned by private equity company Colony Capital, investor Ron Tutor, and the Qatar sovereign wealth fund, will have the right to co-finance the movies and own a 50% stake in the new movies produced by Weinstein Co., a person familiar with the agreement said. If Miramax declines to provide the funding, the company will receive 5% of the movies’ gross revenue.

The deal terms are similar to ones Weinstein Co. made with Disney for sequel rights to 16 movies from the Miramax library including “Scream” and “Spy Kids” as part of their settlement in 2005. Weinstein Co. will release “Scream 4” and “Spy Kids 4” next year.
