  9. *Insist on the Truth -- Even When It's Good News* Donald Spoto October 28, 2010 As the author of twenty-six books, most of them biographies, I've developed a kind of motto: "The biographer is obliged to tell the truth--even when it means saying something good about someone." This is not always a popular position to stake. Twenty years ago, for example, I began research for a life of Marilyn Monroe--the first such project authorized by her Estate, with no strings attached and unhindered access to a massive array of materials never before consulted. After conducting more than a hundred interviews and surveying an astonishing cache of primary material, something unexpected became clear. Monroe was not a dimwitted woman of easy virtue who spiraled downward into suicidal depression. She was something very different indeed from that popular misconception. I had precisely the same experience while working on my latest book, _Possessed: The Life of Joan Crawford_. Important new material revealed a woman very different from the conventional, false image. With the possible exception of Marilyn Monroe, perhaps no movie star has been so underappreciated, misrepresented by rumor, innuendo, fabrication, unfounded allegation and rank distortion. Joan Crawford was neither Joan of Arc nor an arch she-devil. She was a recognizably human and passionate woman who entertained millions; she made egregious mistakes and learned from them; and she always had a legion of friends and countless admirers. One's fame or power or influence was never the criterion for friendship with Joan, and she was on warm terms with people from every walk of life. The shift in public opinion from respect to contempt began a year after her death, with the publication of a book called Mommie Dearest, which alleged that Joan was a sadistic alcoholic who took special pleasure in torturing her adopted children. That volume, remarkable as the work of a somewhat hysterical imagination, cannot be taken seriously after one has checked the facts, reviewed original documents and interviewed those who knew Joan and her children. More to the point, the author of the book has retreated from her most outlandish claims--but that, of course, is very rarely reported. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/donald-spoto/insist-on-the-truth-even-_b_774999.html

  13. An applause for Hayley Mills!!

    *October 9, 2010 @ 9:15pm - Arizoan Time -* *_Family Way, The_ (1966)* Living with his parents keeps a newlywed husband from consummating his marriage. Cast: Hayley Mills, John Mills, Hywel Bennett, Marjorie Rhodes Dir: Roy Boulting C-116 mins _The Family Way_ starring Hayley Mills in what was billed as her first 'adult' film. Many actors turn to roles featuring villainy or mature themes in order to appeal to a larger audience and show they can act beyond the characters that people are familiar with. Child actors in particular go that route with varying degrees of success. Hayley Mills was one of those that by all accounts was able to grow into a fine adult actor and have a successful career. In The Family Way, Hayley gets married to some tool and like many newlyweds, experience comical, dramatic moments caused by interfering parents and horribly awkward adult situations. The Family Way also features the first nude scene by Hayley.
  14. Jimmy Stewart gets a post office

    *Bill would rename post office for Indiana's Jimmy Stewart* By RANDY WELLS, Published: Friday, October 1, 2010 Indiana Gazette *Indiana has a Jimmy Stewart Museum, a Jimmy Stewart Boulevard and a Jimmy Stewart Airport.* And next ? only a block from where Jimmy?s voice (mimicked by celebrity impersonator Rich Little) tells pedestrians when it?s safe to cross Philadelphia and Seventh streets ? Indiana is one step away from having a Jimmy Stewart post office. The U.S. House of Representatives Thursday passed H.R. 5606, a bill that designates the United States Postal Service at 47 S. Seventh St. in Indiana as the James M. ?Jimmy? Stewart Post Office Building. ?Indiana is proud of Jimmy Stewart and renaming the South Seventh Street post office in his honor is a fitting tribute to one of the most inspiring and patriotic actors of the 20th century,? said Congressman Mark Critz, D-Johnstown, who introduced the legislation in June. The bill, which was co-sponsored by the entire Pennsylvania House delegation, must now be considered by the Senate before heading to the president to be signed into law. In his presentation in the House, Critz noted that Stewart was born in Indiana in 1908; studied at Princeton University, where he developed his love of acting; and appeared in 92 films, television programs and shorts. He enlisted in the Army in 1941 and became the first major American movie star to wear the uniform during the war. He flew 20 combat missions as a bomber pilot in Europe; co-founded the American Spirit Foundation, which helped to develop new approaches to public education; and died in California in 1997.
  15. *Jimmy Stewart gets a post office* September 27, 2010 The Hill *More than 70 years after "Mr. Smith" first went to Washington, Congress is giving legendary actor Jimmy Stewart his due, in the form of a hometown post office.* The House will hold a suspension vote this week on a bill proposed by Rep. Mark Critz (D-Pa.), to name a James M. "Jimmy" Stewart Post Office in the actor's hometown of Indiana, Pa. Stewart's accomplishments go further toward deserving a post office than just his performances -- he served in World War II and the Vietnam War, achieving the rank of Major General in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Stewart was a lifelong Republican, and he actively campaigned for Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, as well as donating to candidate Bob Dole. Stewart died in 1997.
