Hidden Hollywood: John Wayne Walks the Walk

It’s in the walk. Picture the following Hollywood stars in your mind’s eye: Mae West, hands caressing her Rubenesque hips, head tilted, not just sauntering but oozing forward to devour all who cross her path. Jimmy Cagney, elbows cocked, moving with concentrated energy, he propels himself like a coiled spring. Joan Crawford, leading with her linebacker shoulders, […]

It is no accident that in 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering his powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran.
