Nancy and Ronald Reagan were inseparable. The former President and first lady's son, Ron Reagan Jr., spoke to the Today show on Monday, in the wake of his mother's death, recalling his parent's unfailing love. "Once they had bonded together they really were inseparable. I mean, it sounds cliché," the 57-year-old said.

Nancy Reagan, Actress Who Became Powerful First Lady, Dies at 94

Nancy Reagan, Actress Who Became Powerful First Lady, Dies at 94
Former first lady Nancy Reagan, who as an aspiring actress married affable leading man Ronald Reagan, and then offered her unfailing support and Hollywood style as his unlikely political career took them to the Sacramento’s governor’s mansion and then all the way to the White House, has died. She was 94.

A family spokesperson told CBS that Reagan died Sunday in her Los Angeles home of congestive heart failure.

Reagan had a reputation as her husband’s greatest protector, whether regarding publicity or public policy, but she won public admiration as she took on the role of caregiver as he faced the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in the last 10 years of his life.

Nancy Davis was an actress under contract with MGM in 1949 when she first met Reagan, then president of the Screen Actors Guild, and asked for his help in clearing her name after it mistakenly appeared

Stuart’s Top 10 films & other treats from 2015

Here’s my Top Ten films and other treats from 2015 (in no particular order):

Best Movies 1) Fury Road

After 15 minutes I turned to my wife and said I was exhausted… Thankfully I got my breath back and Fury Road refused to let up. True to the originals, Tom Hardy’s Max says very little and through Charlize Theron’s Furiosa we arguably got our first feminist action movie – or so it seemed according to the lunatic fringe of fanboy culture as they whipped themselves into a frenzy on many a blog.

2) Carol

Todd Haynes adapted Carol from Patricia Highsmith 1952 novel: The Price Of Salt. The sumptuous period style, stunning cinematic storytelling and stand out performances from Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson combine to make a film experience of a forbidden lesbian love affair – that’s akin to an Edward Hopper painting coming to life.

Famous Atheists Coming Out Of Closets: Ron Reagan Jr.’s Ad Strikes a Chord Video

On the heels of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson using a sadistic parable to underscore his bigoted belief system and compare and contrast non-believers to his religious bent, CNN and Comedy Central are bravely airing a 30-second TV spot for the Freedom From Religion Foundation recorded by the son of “Saint Ronnie” to conservatives, Ron Reagan. Former president Ronald Reagan’s son, Ron Reagan, Jr, is completely out of the closet about his atheism, and it is his tongue in cheek remark about burning in hell that has the other networks refusing to air the spot. Not surprising, many requests for […]

Chris Matthews: When Candidates Want To Speak ‘Far Right’ Religion They Go To Bill O’Reilly

Chris Matthews was discussing the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations with his guests Eugene Robinson and Ron Reagan when he made a curious statement about The O'Reilly Factor. Theorizing that Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is actually calling the shots on the Republican debt ceiling position, Matthews reviewed her interview last night with Bill O'Reilly and concluded that O'Reilly's show is "where you go when you want to speak their religion . . . when you want to go far right, I think you go over to Bill."

Chris Matthews: Michele Bachmann Running For President Would Add To “Showcase Of Cartoon Characters”

Chris Matthews suggested that the topic of Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann taking steps to seriously consider running for President was like "shooting fish in a barrell." With the help of Howard Fineman and Ron Reagan, Matthews wondered if he should feel guilty for helping to build Bachmann into the force she has become and Reagan said, in a word, "yes."

Ron Reagan: My Father Had More In Common With Obama Than Sarah Palin

Just as a good Ronald Reagan quote will always inspire warmth in the heart of conservatives, a quote from his younger son, Ron Reagan, is sure to piss them off. The folks at ABC's webcast Top Line set him up from the beginning of their interview yesterday, leading off with the question of whether his father was more like Barack Obama or Sarah Palin. From the moment Reagan started his response with "Just on the basis of intelligence...," you knew this would be another quotable interview.

Eugene Jarecki's 'Reagan' Documentary Debuts on HBO Tonight

  • Moviefone
Filed under: Documentaries, Sundance Film Festival, Cinematical

One of the quickest films to reach a wide audience following its Sundance premiere last month, Eugene Jarecki's 'Reagan' debuts on HBO tonight (fittingly, a day after Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday). And it's a must-see for fans of non-fiction film, fans of the 40th president, and even those critical of the man for whatever reason. Jarecki, whose last feature was the magnificently comprehensive 2005 military-industrial-complex history, 'Why We Fight,' may still surprise you with just how fair and lucid a portrait he has made about such a controversial and complicated figure.

He "was both smarter and better than the left think he was," Ron Reagan Jr. says in the film, "and less the giant than many on the right think he was." The son of Ronald and Nancy is a consistent presence throughout 'Reagan' (Michael Reagan
