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 […]

As far as I know, there are only two countries in the world that were founded on the idea of hope. America and Israel. And what was the hope?

Thanksgiving 2015: The Children of the Children of Israel

As far as I know, there are only two countries in the world that were founded on the idea of hope. America and Israel. And what was the hope? The hope of achieving religious freedom, and freedom from the tyranny of centralized government. The Children of Israel, fleeing Egyptian slavery and religious persecution, settled the […]

Talking About Carly Talking

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWQY1aJ8JjU[/youtube]   A major, but frequently overlooked ingredient that contributed to the glamorous image of Hollywood’s greatest stars were their voices. Under the studio system, actors were given rigorous voice training. They were taught to enunciate clearly, and how to emphasize certain words in order to give better line readings. They were drilled on how […]

Friday Photos: The Image is the Message

The other day I was talking with an aspiring screenwriter about great film actors. I mentioned Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Cary Grant, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and Marilyn Monroe. The aspiring screenwriter, a young woman, told me that she’d heard of them, seen a lot of their photos on the internet, […]

Friday Photos: Till the Cows Come Home

I’ve just finished a long and depressing conversation with a close friend who attends Daf Yomi with yours truly. We were wondering (among other things) what has possessed Barack Hussein Obama to release five more ruthless Gitmo detainees? All evidence, and common sense, suggests that these IslamoNazis will return to jihad and commit further rampages […]

Hollywood — Play Ball!

Ever since Hollywood invented itself as a universal dream factory, movies about baseball were viewed as the perfect landscape in which to explore themes of loyalty, ambition, competition, and of course, love.
