Fay Wray: Beauty and the Beasts, Part III

Tweet In her disarmingly modest, and revealing autobiography, On the Other Hand, film actress Fay Wray (September 15, 1907–August 8, 2004), best known for her role as Ann Darrow in the classic film King Kong, unravels her life in a lovely, impressionist style. As Seraphic Secret wrote in Part I, Wray, a fatherless young beauty […]

Hollywood is Burning, or: Jew Without Gun

Tweet In light of yesterday’s post about Jews and guns and the vigorous, articulate comments from our readers I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were caught. We were unarmed. The police were, um, absent, and the bad guys owned the streets. […]

Mossad Responsible for Norwegian Terrorism

Tweet As Seraphic Secret predicted, the Norwegian massacre is being blamed on Israel by various elements in the Muslim world. Before too long this delusional narrative will gain traction and become another blood libel against the Jewish people set in stone.

Lone Stars: Texas and Israel

Tweet Several years ago I visited Texas, researching a film I was writing for a Hollywood studio. I had never been  in the Lone Star State before and I did not know what to expect. My guide, a young Texas lady, greeted me warmly at the airport. We chatted amiably in her gigantic Mercedes on […]

Fourth of July Movie: Raid on Entebbe

Michele Bachmann: Israel & The Glamour Quotient

Tweet Michele Bachmann (Republican, MN) is running for the GOP Presidential nomination. Karen and I have long been supporters of Representative Bachmann, proudly contributing to her campaigns. She is the anti-Obama when it comes to fiscal and social policy and especially in regard to America and Israel. Bachman was raised in a conservative Christian home […]

Haunted Hollywood

Tweet In Seraphic Secret’s move to WordPress last week, this post was, for a while, lost in cyberspace. Due to the kindness and tech know-how of our faithful reader Alter Ben-Zion, we have been able to snatch this blog out of its spectral prison. Alter also sent all the comments and they are included. In […]

Economic Smackdown: Paul Ryan vs. Barack Obama

Tweet Hey, did you know that there’s a statue of Brigitte Bardot in Buzios, Brazil? And what does this have to do with economic theory? It’s just that yesterday Karen and I took a walk in Beverly Hills and we were totally grossed out by a hunk of public sculpture in a bank plaza on […]

Elvis Meets Bardot

Tweet     Tweet Last night night I dreamed about Elvis Presley. I don’t remember the dream except that it’s logic went something like this: I’m a kid in Brooklyn, cutting Yeshiva, going to the movies in Manhattan—which looks suspiciously like Beverly Hills—and I’m sitting in a theater watching an Elvis movie that does not […]
