Hidden Hollywood: Colleen Moore’s Not So Romantic Wedding Night

Tweet Flaming Youth was a huge hit and propelled Colleen Moore (1899 – 1988) to international stardom.

Donald Trump: Jew

Tweet The Selective Investigative Instincts of the Liberal Media When Sarah Palin burst upon the national scene and the leftist/ liberal media attempted to destroy her, Seraphic Secret observed that Governor Palin was being transformed into a Jew.
