Hidden Hollywood: Deanna Durbin and Ann Frank

There was a time when Hollywood stars gave hope to those victims who were trapped in the whirlwind of oppression, intolerance and genocide. Such a star was the radiant Deanna Durbin, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 91. Durbin (b. Edna Mae Durbin December 4, 1921 – c. April 20, 2013) was […]

Hidden Hollywood: Latin Lover Ricardo Cortez is Kosher Butcher’s Son

Ricardo Cortez (1900-1977) was a handsome and talented leading man whose image, in the silent era, was that of a hot-blooded Latin lover. In truth, his name was Jacob Krantz, the son of a kosher butcher, born and raised in the mean streets of New York’s Lower East Side.

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 High Horse Edition

At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, Barack Obama warned that we should not “get on our high horse” over the immolation of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh because Christians used to burn people too. It shocking and reprehensible that two days after Islamic terrorists burn a man alive, the President of the United […]

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

The automobile represents freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains. Railroads are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a government-controlled system that turns  citizens into passive […]

With flat lighting, a grim full frontal pose, and that look of bafflement, your photo probably looks like a mug shot. Are glamorous Hollywood stars just like us when they submit to the artless lens of the […]

Hollywood on Hollywood

Labor Day affords us the opportunity to reflect on work, our jobs, present and past. Good jobs, bad jobs, we’ve all had our share of both. Work should set you free. Honest labor puts money in your pocket which allows you to spend that money as you see fit. Ideally, work infuses the individual with […]
