    This critically acclaimed director also had a critically acclaimed actress as his wife. Both artists are currently still active, while at the same time they have films that would be considered classics. Hint#1-- These two are so well-known that everyone on this website is familiar with their names.

    FORGOTTEN Oldies

    Sep-- Next to " Mackie "my two favorite Bobby Darin songs are "Artificial Flowers" and "Up the Lazy River". But "Beyond the Sea" Reminds me of a Funny Story. When I was teaching in France oh, I had a friend who was a professor and was interested in American popular music. He had a hissy and a cow about the song, "Beyond the Sea", and said that the Americans didn't have much original music cuz they were always stealing from the French. So he pointed out to me that Charles Trenet, who was a 20th century iconic French singer and composer had written this song. So he was just screaming to me about cultural appropriation. I had to laugh and tell him that the Americans had written so many popular tunes which the French Had sung so it didn't really matter that Bobby Darin had used one Trenet song and turned it into a big Top 40 hit. But you know how the French are about their culture. LOL So, Sep, if you ever get the chance and you want to hear the original version, you should go on YouTube or Google Charles Trenet and it's called "La Mer". BTW--Frank Sinatra's "My Way" is also a French song, but we won't go into that today. LOL

    *Racism is not a deflection. Racism is a reality. I have no trouble seeing that the girl looks like the photo-- only maybe a couple of years younger. When you meet, you know, and you have friends from many different cultures and races and ethnicities, it's easier to see people as individuals and not as stereotypes. Tokenism is one thing --Diversity is another.

    My first knowledge of Madge Evans was in a Spencer Tracy movie called " The Show-Off", which I saw in the late 1960s. As an actress she always intrigued me, but she made few movies in the Golden Age. Her husband was playwright Sidney Kingsley whose play, " Dead End " was made into a critically successful movie starring Humphrey Bogart and directed by William Wyler. I suppose it was controversial for its day, but watching it on The Late Show in the early 60s, it was not so much shocking as sad--especially Bogart's scenes with his mother and his former girlfriend.
  17. Historically United States Presidents try to bring the country together in good times and bad times. trump is unique in that he tries to divide and conquer the American people as if he was a foreign invader. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt told us that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. The current occupant of the Oval Office believes that Americans should fear all citizens and any person who is a different race or a different ethnicity or a different religion or a different political persuasion from themselves. Maybe you can win the Electoral College with a program of BIGOTRY and HATE, but you can't lead a pluralistic Democratic Nation with Bigotry and Hate. Either the Democracy will die from the promotion of Hate from Within or Hateful leadership, which is Unconstitutional and UN-AMERICAN, will be obliterated from the Memory of that Democracy.
