Independence Day: Once Upon A Time Hollywood Loved America

A long time ago, in a universe far far away, in a place called Hollywood, the movie studios and the actors who flourished in those dream factories, celebrated their love of America and enthusiastically indulged in overt displays of patriotism. L.B. Mayer (b. Lazar Meir) the powerful head of MGM, was a pioneer of the […]

Flashback: When Hollywood Celebrated Christmas

There was a time when Hollywood openly and joyously celebrated Christmas. Now, among the Hollywood elite, the greeting I hear is “Happy Holidays.” Look, we at Seraphic Secret are Orthodox Jews. This is not our holiday. But we want our Christian friends to celebrate Christmas. The politically correct Happy Holidays shtick is another nail in […]

Hidden Hollywood: Mae Clarke, Girl, Gangster, Grapefruit

Most actors are remembered for their unique personae. Clark Gable was a man’s man. The humorous gleam in his eye sent daggers to the knees of women everywhere. Bette Davis practically cornered the market on the deeply neurotic woman clawing at the boundaries of love with baroque fury. Gary Cooper was the classic taciturn American, […]

Friday Photos: In Every Generation

On Passover, Jews around the world recite a passage from the Haggadah that strikes a note both poignant and defiant. In every generation they [our enemies] rise up against us to destroy us, but the Holy One Blessed Be He saves us from their hands. But Judaism does not place faith in faith alone. Man […]

Friday Photos: Trompe L’oeil Nation

The idea is to fool the eye, to convince the viewer that the object exists in three dimensions. But of course, the surface is flat. It is a masterful illusion. So it is with Barack Obama and the postmodern Democrat party, who wage a ceaseless campaign of political trompe l’oeil. The Constitution, the separation of […]

Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Is it our imagination or is the global order falling into systemic disorder? North Korea, a giant gulag, has managed to intimidate the entire Hollywood system. Meanwhile, the Obama regime, allegedly sworn to defend and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic, seems far more interested in cozying up to the ruthless tyrants of […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Still Burning…

It’s been another terrible, horrible very bad week with the release of a Democrat, ahem, study, that seeks to persecute President George W. Bush and the CIA for their efforts to protect America against genocidal IslamoNazis. The Democrat Senate report is a lynching, just as the Ferguson riots are lynch mobs, and just as Rolling […]

Take #3: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

Leaning boards ( also called Slant boards) were invented for Hollywood players to relax between takes. Hollywood costumes were frequently cut on-the-bias, and tailored so snugly that the actor could not sit without bursting a ladder of seams. In fact, most of the time, there were no zippers or buttons on the costumes. Actors were […]

Friday Footwear — Stiletto Statistics

Sigmund Freud famously asked: “What do women want?” A new survey by ShoeBuy.com confirms what Seraphic Secret knows: Women want shoes. Women dream of nose-bleed stilettos, ballet flats, boots, Oxfords, sandals — whatever! If it clothes the foot, women lust for it.  Okay, a few statistics.
