Personal Quote:

[In 2020 print interview] No one writes more incisively on Hollywood than Andrei Zhdanov, Stalin's minister of culture. His book "The Zionism, Ebionism, and Pie in the Sky-onism of Hollywood Under Jewish Businessmen Goldwyn, Zanuck, and Fox" is a refreshingly chatty yet eye-opening read. Sweet Tooth Pam tweeted about it last week, and I read all 543 pages on my Kindle in a single sitting. See more »
