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 […]

Friday Photos: Welcome to the New La-La Land

  Hollywood was once the dream capital of the world. Movies peddled glamour and fantasy. This was La-La Land where outrageous plots and larger than life characters allowed audiences to construct alternate realities — entertainment. But La-La Land has relocated. On Wednesday, President Obama delivered the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy in New […]

Friday Photos: UnBaltimore Edition

The Baltimore neighborhood that saw the worst of the violence was already filled with many burned-out buildings and vacant lots that had not been rebuilt since the 1968 riots that followed the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Source via my friend Neo-Neocon Nothing more to say but enjoy the photos.

Take #1: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

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

Hollywood Sells: Buy Me, Be Me

  Ever since there were movie stars there have been star product endorsements. Corporations and their advertising companies were quick to understand that those larger than life figures floating like angels on the silver screen were potent persuaders. Thus, the synergistic relationship between one product, the movie star, and a consumer product—cigarettes, perfume, makeup, whatever—was […]

Friday Fashion: Hollywood on Parade

Seraphic Secret was glancing through the latest issue of the “National Enquirer” the other day—how else am I going to learn about what’s going on in Hollywood?—and was horrified to discover that this tabloid has a rather unhealthy fixation on celebrity photos that focus on cellulite, disheveled stars in flip-flops  taking out the garbage, and […]

Friday Fashion: Turban Time in Hollywood

  When asked to define the essence of Hollywood glamour, the multi-talented director Edmund Goulding replied: “It’s the magnetism that changes the current of every movie fan’s life and persuades a girl that she must have a dress like the one Joan Crawford wore in her last picture. It’s the mesmerism that induces a boy […]
