Look at this giant mural (above, right) commemorating the “battle.” Did British tax dollars pay for that? Here’s a mainstream media take on The Battle of Cable Street: [Article]. Here’s a different take on it: [Article]. They even made a short film about it, which was spawned by money from a Jewish film festival: [Webpage].

“Beethoven is upright and honest, whereas jazz is sneaky and treacherous and effeminate and just plain foreign.” — from the movie “My Life So Far” (1999).

Zulu (1964, starring Michael Caine and Stanley Baker). Zulu is based on a true event. It’s about an epic battle between British Army soldiers and negro warriors (the Zulu) in 1879 in Natal province, South Africa [1]. The Zulu attack on the British soldiers is relentless and bloody, lasting 2 or 3 days. The British […]

The Stepford Wives (1975, starring Katharine Ross and Paula Prentiss; based on the book by Ira Levin). If this movie was meant to portray gentile men as evil anti-progressives who want obedient wives who exist only to cook and clean, I think it back-fired. I think most men would want a Stepford wife – in […]

“Danton” (1983), starring Gerard Depardieu. In French with English subtitles. This movie was directed by Polish filmmaker Andrzej Wajda, who also directed the 2007 movie “Katyn,” about the infamous forest massacre of 1940. Wajda’s father was murdered in the Katyn massacre. “Danton” is about one of the most horrible events in human history: the French […]

“Robin Hood” (2010), starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. Directed by Ridley Scott. I expected much more from a Crowe/Scott pair-up. I found the movie to be “lots of show, but not much go.” Plus, this version of Marian was too much of a feminist for me. Gimme the 1938 Errol Flynn version of RH […]

Well, of course it is. Don’t be silly! Speaking of “Sex and the City,” actress Sarah Jessica Parker is its central figure and icon. Is that because: 1. She’s a beautiful woman and her beauty will attract lots of viewers? 2. The heavily-Jewish entertainment industry believes that she has classic Jewish features and wants to […]

“The Widow of Saint-Pierre” (2000; starring Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil, in French with English subtitles). This movie is a departure of sorts, since, for once, being liberal has severe consequences, as a French army captain/jail warden and his wife find out on a remote, French island (Saint-Pierre) located off of Newfoundland in 1849-1850. They […]

Abandon Ship! (1957) by N.B. Forrest. I saw this movie (based on a true story) for the second time last night, and was reminded just what a gem it is. It starred handsome Tyrone Power (the last White man ever to sport the name “Tyrone”, incidentally). He played Alec Holmes, executive officer of the ocean […]
