America Is Being Run By Evil and Imbecilic Man-Children

It's too painful to even contemplate how stupid, vapid and disgusting this man is, but we must. 

RIP Marni Nixon, The Ghostess With The Mostess

"Marni Nixon, the American cinema’s most unsung singer, died on Sunday in Manhattan. She was 86."

"The cause was breast cancer, said Randy Banner, a student and friend. Ms. Nixon, a California native, had lived in Manhattan, on the Upper West Side, for more than 40 years."

"Classically trained, Ms. Nixon was throughout the 1950s and ’60s the unseen — and usually uncredited — singing voice of the stars in a spate of celebrated Hollywood films. She dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” among many others."

Germany Sucks

JOOOOOZ!

Things That Make Jew-Haters Sad

Conrad Black: The Genius Of Trump

Interesting read: 

"The U.S. and the world could do much worse and the media, whom Donald has rightly taken to the woodshed to the general delight of the public, should stop wringing its hands and report more perceptively and equably this performance of great virtuosity in the greatest circus of all, which has caught them all with unclean hands and their pants down. Vulgar, corrupt, banal and half-mad though it is, America remains magnificent in a way, and absorbs the world’s attention; we’re all still watching."

"A Conversation With Mel Brooks"

A wonderful piece from Tablet magazine.

Nicely played, Ivor Davis.

And a good lesson in here from a smart Yid on the making of Blazing Saddles: 

Brooks:

“Then he grabbed me by the ear and threw me in the manager’s office—and handed me a legal pad. ‘The farting scene has got to go. You can’t punch a horse. You can’t hit an old lady. And you can’t use the N-word.’ Then he gave me a list of 26 other scenes that he said must go. Out. Out. Out."

"I knew if I cut those we’d have a 15-minute film. I wrote it all down and then after he walked out I crumpled up the pages and tossed them in the waste paper bin."

“John Calley, another studio executive who was running the movie division, turned to me and said, ‘I like your filing system."

"Then he saved my life." 

"He said, ‘The audience rocked from the opening scene. We must give it a try in New York and Chicago.’ So I kept everything in—and the film went on to make gobs of money.

Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmmm

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
