The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets by Simon Singh – review

24 October 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mmm … pi: the cult TV series is deeply in love with numbers

The Simpsons, Simon Singh says, is "arguably the most successful television show in history". It may also be the most allusive: it sometimes seems as if every aspect of the show is a knowing reference to something else. And sometimes it seems as if everything else is an unknowing reference to The Simpsons. The first time I saw Tully Marshall's performance as the sinister head of Nitro Chemical in the 1942 film noir This Gun for Hire, my immediate reaction was: "It's Mr Burns!" A similar thought occurred to me watching Rupert Murdoch testify to the Leveson inquiry. Given the depth, or at least the breadth, of allusion in the show, and its long-running appeal (it has been on air since 1989), it's little wonder that there have been so many books along the lines of The Simpsons and Philosophy, »

This Gun for Hire

Written by Albert Maltz and W.R. Burnett

Directed by Frank Tuttle

U.S.A, 1942

The great American actor Alan Ladd died at the unfairly young age of 50. With a series of leading roles in some timeless classics during the 1940s and 1950s he carved himself a firm place in Hollywood lore. His quality work in such films as The Blue Dahlia, Two Years Before the Mast and Shane earned him critical acclaim as well as a bevy of movie fans. He could play cool and he could play tough as nails, yet was also clearly capable of demonstrating a subtle humane side to even his most hardened characters. One of the early films of his career that helped pave his way into stardom was the 1942, Frank Tuttle directed This Gun for Hire, a multi-genre mashing of WWII, spy and noir themes.
