The Hollywood Ten 60 Years Ago Today The Hollywood blacklist, was the mid-20th Century list of screenwriters, actors, directors, musicians, and other U.S. entertainment professionals who were denied employment in the field because of their political beliefs or associations, real or suspected. Artists were barred from work on the basis of their alleged membership in or sympathy toward the American Communist Party, involvement in liberal or simply humanitarian political causes that enforcers of the blacklist associated with communism, and/or refusal to assist federal investigations into Communist Party activities. Some were blacklisted merely because their names came up at the wrong place and time. Even during the period of its strictest enforcement, the late 1940s through the late 1950s, the blacklist was rarely made explicit and verifiable, but it caused direct damage to the careers of scores of American artists, often made betrayal of friendship, not to mention principle, the price for a livelihood, and promoted ideological censorship across the entire industry. Pictured are Front row (from left): Herbert Biberman, attorneys Martin Popper and Robert W. Kenny, Albert Maltz, Lester Cole. Middle row: writer Dalton Trumbo, John Howard Lawson, Alvah Bessie, Samuel Ornitz. Back row: Ring Lardner Jr., Edward Dmytryk, Adrian Scott.

Deceiving Childrens Movie Premiering Dec 7th There will be a new children's movie The Golden Compass premiering December 7th, starring Nicole Kidman, and is being highly promoted. Many well intended parents/grandparents will think this is a great movie to take the kids to see, even my wife and son wanted to see it. The movie has been described as "atheism for kids" and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman 's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview, "my books are about killing God." He has even stated that he wants "to kill God in the minds of children". I always verify my info with Snopes.com first; here are a bunch of links to verify and to read more info: http://snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp http://www.citizenlink.org/content/A000005672.cfm http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1573421/story.jhtml They have a right to produce this movie and I'm not saying not to go see it, just be aware that this isn't as innocent as they are advertising! Heck, MTV is giving a warning!

Elizabeth Taylor  Michael Todd Michael Todd breezed into Elizabeth Taylor's life on June 23, 1956....and sadly breezed out just as quickly on March 22, 1958. But during their time together, they accumulated a lifetime worth of memories. They traveled all over the world promoting the Mike Todd spectacularly produced Oscar winning, AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, as well as promoting Elizabeth's movie epics, GIANT and RAINTREE COUNTRY. They married in Mexico in February 1957, days after Elizabeth obtained her divorce from second husband, Michael Wilding. Mike's death devastated Elizabeth to the point of propelling her into a state of self destruction when she did not care if she lived or died. In fact, she had to come close to death (herself) before appreciating living again. Mike and Elizabeth's love story is a special one...and their time together was so very short but so very potent. Elizabeth, today, claims he was one of the great loves of her life ...
