Hitchcock: The Primacy of Emotion

Francois Truffaut: Are you in favour of the teaching of cinema in universities? Alfred Hitchcock: Only on condition that they teach cinema since the era of Méliès and that the students learn how to make silent films, because there is no better form of training. Talking pictures often served merely to introduce the theatre into […]

Friday Photos: Democrat Privilege

Pop quiz: Why isn’t the Justice Department investigating the Clinton money laundering operation? Any other so-called charity would be under multiple federal and state indictments. Hillary Clinton had her own private server when she was Secretary of State. This is indefensible. She destroyed 30,000 emails? Does anyone believe that all these emails were about yoga […]

Friday Photos: The No Men Edition

In Pierke Avot (Ethic of the Fathers) Hillel teaches: “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.” Bibi Netanyahu won a resounding victory over the Israeli left and Barack Obama by paying heed to the great sage Hillel’s teaching. Bibi is a man in a world that is awash in eunuchs.

Teresa Wright’s Audacious Normalcy

Actress Theresa Wright (1918-2005), gained unusual clout in the early stages of her distinguished career when she insisted on a most unusual clause in her 1941 contract with Samuel Goldwyn. Goldwyn, a talented, but hard-headed Hollywood producer, desperately wanted Wright under contract, and so he swallowed his pride and allowed Wright’s clause to stand. But […]

Another “Mysterious” Iranian Nuclear Explosion

Have you noticed all the mysterious explosions that happen with increasing frequency to the Iranian nuclear program?

Or: Maybe the Iranians are a bunch of incompetents. Or: […]
