‘The Wizard of Oz’: Judy Garland’s Mother Allowed Her Daughter to Be Subjected to This Abuse on the Film’s Set 

 

Discovering what took place behind the scenes of our favorite films can either be fascinating or it can be heartbreaking.

In the case of international star Judy Garland, it is the latter.

Only 16 when she took on the role of Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz, the actor was endured abuse throughout the making of the film, with her mother’s full knowledge and consent.

Garland’s mother, Ethel Gumm, according to the biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland by Gerald Clarke, was a combative and harsh stage mother. She plied her daughter with pills as young as age 10 — stimulants to keep her up and then sleeping pills when she wasn’t needed on the set.

Gumm sanctioned the appalling diet the studio required of her daughter in order to make her look as young as possible: chicken soup, black coffee, 80 cigarettes, diet pills, and amphetamines. Garland was addicted to prescription pills for the rest of her life.

The pandemic is hitting LGBTQ families harder than straight people 

 

A recent report by the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) found that LGBTQ families are experiencing disproportionate challenges due to the pandemic.

The report, based on the results of a summer survey by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, found that LGBTQ households are experiencing greater financial strain, more unemployment, and bigger struggles to balance work and childcare than non-LGBTQ households.

The report found, for example, that 66% of LGBTQ households have experienced a serious financial problem since the pandemic began, compared to 44% of non-LGBTQ households.

It also found that 52% of LGBTQ households with children have had trouble keeping their kids’ education going, compared to 36% of non-LGBTQ households that have experienced this challenge.

Healthcare has also been a huge challenge for the LGBTQ community, with 38% of LGBTQ households reporting they were unable to get medical care or delayed getting medical care for serious issues. This compared to 19% of non-LGBTQ households.

Although their marriage didn’t last, they still cared about each other deeply.
Because of this, the public was left scratching their heads when the playwright refused to attend Monroe’s funeral. Keep reading to find out why.

Majority of Americans hate socialism, reject AOC: survey 

 

Nearly 60 percent of the country thinks poorly of Progressive darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and 75 percent want nothing to do with the socialism she preaches.

Asked whether the free-market economy or socialism was better, 75 percent of likely voters chose capitalism, while 11 percent backed socialism, according to a Heartland Institute/Rasmussen poll.

Another 14 percent said they were “not sure.”

“Likely voters hate socialism,” the pollster said.

“Despite the countless calls for more socialism among elites in media and Hollywood, Americans aren’t interested in adopting the same socialist policies that have led to mass poverty wherever they have been tried,” the Illinois-based nonprofit said in a statement released Wednesday, the Washington Times reported.

Connie Chung Says Bryant Gumbel Treated Her Like She “Was Invisible” 

 

In a Q&A taken from that conversation and published on the magazine’s website on Monday, Goldman asks the reporter if Gumble suffered from “bigshot-itis.” Chung replied, “I would say so. I’d be sitting beside him, but I was invisible, and we would see him at those same celebrity golf tournaments [as Donald Trump.] And oftentimes I was invisible to him as well.”

DIRECTOR EDWARD JAMES OLMOS WANTED EQUAL NUDITY AND FLAMING STUNTMEN ON BATTLESTAR GALACTICA'S 'THE PLAN' 

 

Bonus! We have one more special episode of the Battlestar Galacticast podcast, and co-hosts Marc Bernardin and Tricia Helfer (Number Six) appropriately talk about BSG's final TV movie, The Plan, with the film's writer and producer, Jane Espenson.

Edward James Olmos (aka Admiral Adama) directed the companion film to the series (note to newbies: The Plan is not the best place to start your BSG watching experience), which follows the path of two Cavils (Dean Stockwell) in the lead-up and aftermath of the initial Cylon attack on humanity. For BSG fans, the TV film is a walk down memory lane, a chance to revisit favorite scenes from the mini-series and the first and second seasons, albeit from a Cylon point-of-view.

Even though the content was dark, Espenson also shares that Olmos had an enthusiastic appreciation for the material. “Eddie really loved pain and darkness. He was like, ‘Life is pain and hard.’ As bright a light as Eddie is, there was something he loved about trying to capture genuine darkness on film. I wrote a line for him [when he played Adama] that referenced going off to the bathroom to take a crap, and it was his favorite thing, because he was like, ‘People do! It’s real!’”

Joe Biden picks Pete Buttigieg to be transportation secretary 

 

Joe Biden will nominate Pete Buttigieg to be his transportation secretary, the president-elect said in a statement on Tuesday, elevating the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to a top post in the federal government.

Buttigieg would be the first Senate-confirmed LGBTQ Cabinet secretary should his nomination make it through the chamber.

"Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a patriot and a problem-solver who speaks to the best of who we are as a nation," Biden said. "I am nominating him for Secretary of Transportation because this position stands at the nexus of so many of the interlocking challenges and opportunities ahead of us."

Biden added that he sees the Department of Transportation as the "site of some of our most ambitious plans to build back better" and that he trusts "Mayor Pete to lead this work with focus, decency, and a bold vision."

China Is Demanding An Apology From The ABC Over 'Racist' TV Show 
 

The episode in question focuses on the story of ancient Chinese Empress Wu Zetian, the only woman to ever rule China.

However, an article by China's state-controlled Global Times claims the episode had drawn outrage and condemnation from Chinese-Australians for its 'controversial content suggesting insects, rats and hair are used in normal Chinese recipes, which they believe is racism and demand for an apology.'

The article continued "In an episode of the series, ancient China Empress Wu Zetian, who is played by a white actress, is eating insects, rats, jellyfish and hair, and invites two modern visitors, the program's hosts, to join the meal."

"As the visitors act disgusted, 'Wu' explained it was 'perfectly normal' to eat insects in China in the Tang Dynasty (618-907)."

World War III is now 'a real risk' due to economic damage caused by Covid, UK's military chief warns - as he predicts armies of robots will fight future conflicts 

 

General Sir Nick Carter, the Chief of the Defence Staff, said Britain and the rest of the world would need to 'learn' from history and the international missteps that led to the previous world wars in the last century given the uncertainties caused by Covid-19.

Sir Nick told the Sophy Ridge On Sunday programme there was a worry that the increase in regional conflicts playing out across the world could ramp up into 'a full-blown war', mirroring the run-up to the two world wars in the 20th century when a series of alliances between countries led to years of bloodshed.

The senior official argued that, with the world being 'a very uncertain and anxious place' during the pandemic, there was the possibility 'you could see escalation lead to miscalculation'.

'We have to remember that history might not repeat itself but it has a rhythm and if you look back at the last century, before both world wars, I think it was unarguable that there was escalation which led to the miscalculation which ultimately led to war at a scale we would hopefully never see again,' said Sir Nick.

'If I projected forward another 10 years, I think we should be in no doubt that warfare will look different, there will be robots on our battlefield in future - there already are today,' he added.

Sean Connery, James Bond star, dies at 90: 'One of the true greats of cinema' 

 

Sean Connery, most famous for his portrayal of James Bond, has died at the age of 90, his family said Saturday. The actor, who played 007 in seven movies starting with 1962's Dr. No, died in his sleep in the Bahamas. The actor had been "unwell for some time," his son Jason told the BBC.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Connery had an acting career that spanned decades and included multiple award-winning performances. He won the Oscar for best supporting actor for his work in The Untouchables in 1988 and won three Golden Globes. He also starred opposite Harrison Ford in 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, in which he played Jones' father.

Why Does Blood Look So Strange in Old Horror Movies? 

 

George Romero’s classic 1978 horror film Dawn of the Dead begins in a state of high panic. A sequel to Night of the Living Dead, Romero’s 1968 film that introduced the zombie as we now know it, Dawn’s first scenes find the zombie apocalypse already in progress. After opening on a Philadelphia TV station that’s descended into chaos—and where a public health expert repeats, in vain, the safety protocols that might have prevented the zombie pandemic—the film shifts to a housing project that’s moments away from being raided. Now a hotbed of undead infection, the building’s mostly Black and Latinx residents, understandably distrustful of authorities, have refused to give up their dead.

What follows establishes just how graphic the violence in the film will be, first with an exchange of gunfire then with a showstopping moment from makeup-and-effects wizard Tom Savini: a zombie’s head exploding after ending up on the receiving end of a shotgun blast. It’s horrific but, like the gunplay that precedes it, just a glimpse of the resulting gore. Then the camera lingers, however, and when a woman rushes to embrace her undead husband and he takes bites from her flesh, her blood flows in abundance. Only … the bright fluid that gushes from her doesn’t look much like blood.
