How Hollywood bowed to Hitler: Film studios showed Nazi Germany in positive light historian claims

Hollywood: Hey, this Obamacare thing is going to be pretty costly and complicated for us

Urwand said studio bosses could not claim ignorance of the atrocities being carried out against the Jews because they had been forced to fire Jewish employees. Bible inscribed by Albert Einstein who once called the holy text ‘pretty childish’ fetches $68,500 in NYC auction ‘Hollywood is collaborating and the Nazis are having the final say on several important movies that would have exposed what was going on in Germany,’ he said. He added: ‘I wouldn’t want what I write to be generalisable about Jews, but specific Jews in the movie business made decisions to work with Nazi leaders.’ Urwand, whose Jewish grandparents went into hiding in the war, added: ‘It was [Jack] Warner who personally ordered that the word Jew be removed from all dialogue in the 1937 film The Life of Emile Zola”.” Censor: Propaganda minister Goebbels talks to the Hitler Youth in Berlin in 1935 He told the New York Times Warner’s studio was the first to invite Nazi officials to Los Angeles to suggest cuts. Warner was also said to have taken a cruise on Hitler’s old yacht in 1945, where he discussed post-war business opportunities, Urwand claims.

The movie follows young, idealistic New Yorkers (Stiles and Diggs) as they visit their wealthier and longer-married friends in a ritzy Midwestern mansion. But money barely disguises the contempt behind the wealthy couple’s marriage, and we quickly see it fractured to the point of disintegration. As the film flashes forward a couple years, we now see that the Midwestern couple has repaired their marriage (made possible only by a painful accident), while the young idealists struggle under a mountain of college debt and the stresses of having a newborn in Manhattan. In short, the movie could well be seen as a cautionary tale against marriage — no matter which genders are involved. Critics are already calling this a ” devasting ,” ” brutal ,” ” scathing ,” ” feverish ,” ” powerful ” and ultimately ” hilarious ” depiction of marriage, and favorably comparing it to such classics of the genre as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf , Carnal Knowledge , and Carnage .

Hollywood Warns Gays: Careful What You Wish For (WATCH)

I have a feeling this is headed the direction of the New York gun-control legislation, which found a surprising, hilariously hypocritical critic after its passage in Hollywood: ALBANY The sweeping gun control measure signed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and hailed by Democratic leaders has a surprising critic: Hollywood. Officials in the movie and television industry say the new laws could prevent them from using the lifelike assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that they have employed in shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and films like The Dark Knight Rises. Twenty-seven film and television projects, including programs like Blue Bloods and Person of Interest, are now in production in New York State using assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, according to the Motion Picture Association of America. Industry workers say that they need to use real weapons for verisimilitude, that it would be impractical to try to manufacture fake weapons that could fire blanks, and that the entertainment industry should not be penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to mass shootings.

Hollywood director James Cameron urges boost in oceans research

“What we need to do is look at the major economic drivers,” Cameron said. “I’ll give you an example: Food prices rising because crop yields are down because ocean precipitation isn’t there. We need to look at the ocean as a driver to our economy.” As oceanic research funding is stretched thin, so, too, are the human resources involved in researching the vital ecosystems, Cameron said.
