    Calvin: Bogie did a review of Brexit about a week ago (back on page 621 if you're doing the 25 posts a page thing) and I linked to Dominic Cummings' own thoughts on the referendum from 2017. I'd think it's more accurate to say that Cummings didn't play by "convention", not by "the rules" since the latter might imply that his campaign was breaking laws. And the "rules" were structured so as to heavily favor Remain. I still like the quote from Cummings that I put in my response, so I'll quote it again: As a third-party voter, I see so much of that in American politics.

    Kings Go Forth (1958) Frank Sinatra plays an Army lieutenant in the World War II campaign in Southern France, who gets a new radio man in sergeant Tony Curtis, who's serving in order to escape his idle rich past. One day on leave he meets Natalie Wood and falls in love with her, until she reveals her dirty little secret, which is that she's as black as Susan Kohner in Imitation of Life. At that point Tony starts putting the moves on her but unceremoniously dumps her because he's a jerk. Frankie and Tony have to resolve their personal issues by going on a mission behind enemy lines.... This one has muddled character motivations, a flawed script (Natalie's late black father never gets a name, even when Mom is talking lovingly about him), and a screwed-up ending. I was almost hoping for Troy Donahue to show up, but then I realized that Natalie playing a phony black was good practice for playing a phony Puerto Rican a few years later in West Side Story. 5/10.

    Hollywood Squares, yes: Match Game, I don't think so. However, she did do Password when it was in New York, with somebody you wouldn't have expected to do game shows:

    The funny Canadians come down to the US to make a success of themselves in the entertainment industry. The rest stay behind and complain about what an awful place the US is.
  13. They're the curtains that aren't available in Canada.
