  1. The Best Man - Fonda is Adlai Stevenson & Robertson is Richard Nixon Advise & Consent - Fonda - Another Stevenson type - Franchot Tone - FDR - Don Murray - Nixon & Wyoming Senator Lester Hunt ( Dem ) who committing suicide in 1954 after being harassed by GOP Senators Bridges ( NH ), Dirksen ( Il ), Nixon, and FBI director Hoover over Hunts son cruising Washington, DC for gay hook ups. Burgess Meredith - Whittaker Chambers - Charles Laughton is Richard Russell ( Dem - Georgia ) leader of the Senate " Southern Block ", and mentor of LBJ. George Gizzard is a combination of Senator Joe McCarthy & J. Edward Hoover, despite his characters ultra liberalism. Both McCarthy & Hoover were allegedly gay and blackmailed their opponents into silence. Grizzards charter is threathening with expulsion from the Senate or censure, while McCarthy was censured. The Senate hearings were IMHO a take off on the Alger Hiss - Whittaker Cambers US House hearing that lead to Richard Nixons climb up the political ladder. In the 1952 Presidential campaign Mr Nixon sometimes " slipped " and called Democratic Presidential candidate Stevenson " Alger "rather than Adlai. Mr Preminger must have enjoyed old time leftwinger Will Geer, who was blacklisted, as the Senate minority leader. Mr geer was made up to look like Seanator Robert taft ( R - Ohio ), " Mr Republican ", who was the leader of the conservatives forces in the Senate for almost 15 years.

    Incredible Dumbness of "The Godfather"

    In the opening scences of Godfather 2 where Roths man meets Michael, while the Wedding festivaties are going on outside, concerning the the take over of a Hotel - Casino where Meyer Klingman runs the show, the encounter is actually about the mured of Gus Greenbaum, of the Chicago Outfit and the manager of The Riveria, who the Chicago group wanted out because of this dope addict & possible taking for the mobs cut.

    Who else likes Lana?

    Maybe I'm just an old biddy but I certainly prefer Lana to todays so called female stars. But Lana is not one of my all time favorites.
