George Wallace, the acclaimed TNT original mini-series chronicling the career of the three-time Governor of Alabama and four-time Presidential candidate, will come to DVD for the first time when Warner Home Video (WHV) releases a special 2-disc set January 20, 2009. Based on the book by Marshall Frady, this epic bio directed by the legendary John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate, Seven Days in May, Ronin, Reindeer Games) stars Academy Award® -nominated actor Gary Sinise (CSI:NY, Forrest Gump, Ransom) as the infamous politician and segregationist George Wallace.
Tegen de achtergrond van McCarthyâs anticommunistische heksenjacht en de Korea-oorlog wordt een moord gepleegd. Wie heeft de opdracht gegeven? John Frankenheimer maakte van de verfilming van Richard Condons gelijknamige roman een politieke satire en nagelbijtende thriller ineen. Alle archetypes van communistenvreters, complotdenkers en carriÃ¨risten komen voorbij in deze vertelling over de gepolariseerde jaren vijftig, toen de Vrije Wereld en de Roden lijnrecht tegenover elkaar stonden. Dat Frankenheimer een gevoelige plek had geraakt bleek toen de film na de aanslag op president Kennedy uit roulatie werd gehaald. Voor de cast koos Frankenheimer Frank Sinatra, Janet Leigh en James Gregory, die indrukwekkende acteerprestaties neerzetten.
I hadn't thought about this - but where are Obama's past girlfriends -
surely he had at least one? No past girl friends popping up anywhere?
Strange - strange to the point of being downright weird!
is just plain old common sense, no political agendas for either side.
Just common knowledge for citizens of a country, especially American
who know every little tidbit about every other president (and their
wives) that even know that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe
and was accused of
adultery, or that Lincoln never went to school or Kennedy wore a back
brace, or Truman played the piano.
We are Americans! Our media vets these things out! We are known for our
humanitarian interests and caring for our 'fellow man.' We care, but none
of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president.
Honestly, and this is a personal thing... but it's bugged me for years that
no one who ever dated him ever showed up. Taken his charisma, which caused
the women to be drawn to him so obviously during his campaign, looks like
some lady would not have missed the opportunity.
We all know about JFK's magnetism, McCain was no monk, Palin's courtship
and even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden's aneurisms are no
secret. Look at Cheney and Clinton-we all know about their heart problems.
How could I have left out Wild Bill before or during the White House?
Nope... not one lady has
stepped up and said, "He was soooo shy," or "What
a great dancer!"
Now look at the rest of what we know... no classmates, not even the
recorder for the Columbia class notes ever heard of him.
Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Check for groomsmen
Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony.
Has anyone talked to the professors? Isn't it odd that no one is bragging
that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.
When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos? Every president
provides the public with all their photos, etc. for their library. What has
he released? Nada - other than what was in this so-called biography! And
experts who study writing styles etc. claim it was not O's own words or
typical of his speech patterns, etc.
Does this make any of you wonder?
Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama's past, saying they
knew him, attended school with
him, was his friend, etc?
Not one person has ever come forward from his past.
This should really be a cause for great concern. Did you see the movie
titled, The Manchurian Candidate?
Let's face it. As insignificant as we all are... someone whom we went to
school with remembers our name or face... someone remembers we were the
clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
George Stephanopoulos, ABC News said the same thing during the 2008
Even George questions why no one has acknowledged that the president was in
their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on
Stephanopoulos was a classmate of Obama at Columbia-class of 1984.
He says he never had a single class with him.
Since he is such a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college
class remember him?
And, why won't he allow Columbia to release his
Do you like millions of others, simply assume all this is explainable -
even though no one can?
NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA
Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia
University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there,
but not one remembers him. For example,Wayne Allyn Root was (like Obama) a
political science major at Columbia , who graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root
says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and
they all know me. I don't have a single classmate who ever knew Barack Obama
at Columbia ... EVER!
Nobody recalls him.
Root adds that he was, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says,
"You don't get more exact or closer than that.. Never met him in my life,
don't know anyone who ever met him."
At our 20th class reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker
class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody
even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of
the, as we say in New York , 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find
a person, a human who ever met him."
Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook, and Obama
consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia , provide
school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends
while at Columbia .
How can this be?
NOTE: Wayne Allyn Root can easily be verified. He graduated valedictorian
from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School , then graduated from Columbia
University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same '83 class in
which Barack Hussein Obama states he was.
Some other interesting questions.
Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?
Why was Michelle's law license
inactivated by court order?
According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama - but 27
Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases..
The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he
is never reported to have lived.
No wonder all his records are sealed!
Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere, someone had to
know him in school... before he "reorganized" Chicago and burst upon the
scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention and made us swoon with his charm,
poise, and speaking pizzazz.

Classical Hollywood cinema or the classical Hollywood narrative, are terms used in film history which designate both a visual and sound style for making motion pictures and a mode of production used in the American film industry between 1917 and 1960. This period is often referred to as the "Golden Age of Hollywood." An identifiable cinematic form emerged during this period called classical Hollywood style.
Classical style is fundamentally built on the principle of continuity editing or "invisible" style. That is, the camera and the sound recording should never call attention to themselves (as they might in films from earlier periods, other countries or in a modernist or postmodernist work).
Throughout the early 1930s, risque films and salacious advertising, became widespread in the short period known as Pre-Code Hollywood. MGM dominated the industry and had the top stars in Hollywood, and was also credited for creating the Hollywood star system altogether. MGM stars included at various times "King of Hollywood" Clark Gable, Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, Gary Cooper, Mary Pickford, Henry Fonda, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland, Ava Gardner, James Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Grace Kelly, Gene Kelly, Gloria Stuart, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, John Wayne, Barbara Stanwyck, John Barrymore, Audrey Hepburn and Buster Keaton. Another great achievement of American cinema during this era came through Walt Disney's animation. In 1937, Disney created the most successful film of its time, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Many film historians have remarked upon the many great works of cinema that emerged from this period of highly regimented film-making. One reason this was possible is that, with so many movies being made, not every one had to be a big hit. A studio could gamble on a medium-budget feature with a good script and relatively unknown actors: Citizen Kane, directed by Orson Welles and often regarded as the greatest film of all time, fits that description. In other cases, strong-willed directors like Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock and Frank Capra battled the studios in order to achieve their artistic visions. The apogee of the studio system may have been the year 1939, which saw the release of such classics as The Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Destry Rides Again,Young Mr. Lincoln, Wuthering Heights, Only Angels Have Wings, Ninotchka, Babes in Arms, Gunga Din, and The Roaring Twenties. Among the other films from the Golden Age period that are now considered to be classics: Casablanca, The Adventures of Robin Hood, It's a Wonderful Life, It Happened One Night, King Kong, Citizen Kane, Swing Time, Some Like It Hot, A Night at the Opera, All About Eve, The Searchers, Breakfast At Tiffany's, North by Northwest, Dinner at Eight, Rebel Without a Cause, Rear Window, Double Indemnity, Mutiny on the Bounty, City Lights, Red River, The Manchurian Candidate, Bringing Up Baby, Singin' in the Rain, To Have and Have Not, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Roman Holiday, Giant and Jezebel.
The style of Classical Hollywood cinema, as elaborated by David Bordwell, has been heavily influenced by the ideas of the Renaissance and its resurgence of mankind as the focal point.
Thus, classical narration progresses always through psychological motivation, i.e. by the will of a human character and its struggle with obstacles towards a defined goal. The aspects of space and time are subordinated to the narrative element which is usually composed of two lines of action: A romance intertwined with a more generic one such as business or, in the case of Alfred Hitchcock films, solving a crime.
Time in classical Hollywood is continuous, since non-linearity calls attention to the illusory workings of the medium. The only permissible manipulation of time in this format is the flashback. It is mostly used to introduce a memory sequence of a character, e.g. Casablanca.
Likewise, the treatment of space in classic Hollywood strives to overcome or conceal the two-dimensionality of film ("invisible style") and is strongly centered upon the human body. The majority of shots in a classical film focus on gestures or facial expressions (medium-long and medium shots). André Bazin once compared classical film to a photographed play in that the events seem to exist objectively and that cameras only give us the best view of the whole play.

Growing up on the streets of Hoboken, New Jersey, made Frank Sinatra determined to work hard to get ahead. Starting out as a saloon singer in musty little dives (he carried his own P.A. system), he eventually got work as a band singer, first with The Hoboken Four then with Harry James, then Tommy Dorsey. With the help of George Evans (Sinatra's genius press agent), his image was shaped into that of a street thug and punk who was saved by his first wife, Nancy. In 1942 he started his solo career, instantly finding fame as the king of the bobbysoxers - the young women and girls who were his fans. About that time his film career was also starting in earnest. Known as "One-Take Charlie" for his approach to acting that strove for spontaneity and energy, rather than perfection, he was an instinctive actor who was best at playing parts that mirrored his own personality. A controversial public affair with screen siren Ava Gardner broke up his marriage to Nancy Barbato. After a vocal cord hemorrhage all but ended his career, he fought back and won the coveted role of Maggio in From Here to Eternity (1953). He won an Oscar for best supporting actor, yet still didn't have widespread acceptance in Hollywood. He continued to give strong and memorable performances in such films as The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), Suddenly (1954) and, especially, The Manchurian Candidate (1962) - probably his best film. For the rest of the 1960s he concentrated mainly on lighter roles, playing hard-boiled private eyes and hamming it up with his Rat Pack buddies Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.. Of these films, The Detective (1968) and Ocean's Eleven (1960) are the best. His last lead role was as the aging detective in The First Deadly Sin (1980). He gave a moving performance that was a fitting finale to a long and rich career.
Alex Jones Spoke with Jack McLamb Wednesday on the radio show.
The Two discussed Senator John McCain.
Officer McLamb explains that as a Vietnam veteran, he knows and is in contact with veterans, and a few P.O.W.s.
"All the P.O.W.s that I've talked to over the years say that John McCain is a lying skunk...."
"...You know, that he,he never was tortured.They were there in the camp with him, and when he came in with his two broken arms because he failed to pull his arms in when he bailed out of his plane,and had a leg injury,he immediately started spilling his guts about everything because he didn't want to get tortured..."
McLamb goes on to say that John McCain made 32 videos for the communists, speaking out against America's Vietnam Policies.
He explains that this information is now sealed, and classified.
His assertion that a number of Vietnam Veterans and P.O.Ws have great disdain for the Senator from Arizona should be worrisome to the McCain Camp, as he struggles to patch the GOP factions together under his banner.
Jack McLamb's association, Police & Military Against The New World Order, has a singular goal to prevent those in uniform from being unwittingly used to enslave the people of free nations under the anti-God, anti-Freedom (United Nations-led) world government system. The globalists intend to gain, through any available means, total dictatorial control over all the peoples of the world. They cannot realize their goal if their would-be enforcers (police and soldiers) refuse to assist them in their treachery. Jack's motto spells out this truth: "If police officers and soldiers will not enforce tyranny, it will never be enforced!"
