Will Ferrell Set To Play A Dementia-Stricken Ronald Reagan In New Political Satire


Ronald Reagan

Will Ferrell looks set to spark controversy with the announcement that he is to portray a dementia-stricken Ronald Reagan in a new comedy movie about the former U.S. president’s second term in office.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the big-name comedy actor is set to star in Reagan, an unfilmed script project that has been looking for studio backing for a number of years. In what is billed as a “hilarious political satire” in the 2015 Black List (which ranks the most popular unfilmed scripts yearly) it concerns a White House intern in 1984 who must convince Reagan that he’s actually an actor playing the president in a movie.

Reagan's Daughter's Lesbian Novel, Is It The New 'Fifty Shades'?


Patti Davis Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan's daughter's lesbian novel 'Till Human Voices Wake Us' is now available to buy on Amazon, where it can be downloaded for just $2.99. Patti Davis, the daughter of the conservative former President of the United States, has penned the book about a woman who falls in love with her sister-in-law.

Davis, who posed for Playboy at age 41 and appeared in the movie 'Celebrity Video Centerfold', tells the New York Post's Richard Johnson that the novel is not autobiographical. "This is not me. None of it is autobiographical," adding, "I didn't want to write 'Fifty Shades of' whatever. It's a love story." In one passage in the new book, Davis writes, "She knew my body long before she 'knew' it in the biblical sense. She stood beside me as I studied my naked self in a full-length mirror a week after giving birth to Nathan. 'Oh my God,' I moaned, lifting up the loose skin across my abdomen. 'I'm a bloodhound.'"

Davis decided to release the title as an e-book, saying she was "excited" about the new era of self-publishing. "Maybe this non-autobiographical novel was too much of a departure for publishers to wrap their heads around. Most writers have books they have laboured over for years and long to put out into the world. Till Human Voices Wake Us is one of those books," she said.

Dark Victory Review


OK
You know you're in trouble when such a classically tooled and sculpted weepie as 1939's Dark Victory - one that should require boxes of Kleenex and a couple hours of recuperation - doesn't even begin to wring out a tear until near the final act. What happens when a three-hankie picture just isn't that sad? You get Dark Victory.

The story is the sort of thing that could fuel a whole season or two of one of your better primetime soap operas: Idly wealthy Judith Traherne (Davis) is 23, single, and bereft of any cares besides what trainer to hire for her thoroughbred horses and exactly how many martinis to drink. Having complained of sight problems and headaches, Judith gets browbeaten into seeing Dr. Frederick Steele (George Brent), a renowned brain surgeon about two hours away from chucking his whole practice to go do medical research on his isolated Vermont farm. Steele takes about five minutes to figure out that Judith has a rare and extremely serious condition that needs to be operated on right away. After the operation, Steele tells Judith's friend Ann King (Geraldine Fitzgerald) that Judith will feel fine for a while, but in about ten months, her vision will start to go again and then she'll die, quite suddenly and painlessly. The two then do what any sensible people would: agree to keep the truth from Judith while arranging for her to marry Steele, whom she's fallen in love with.

Boy Meets Girl Review


Very Good
Watch for Ronald Reagan in a small role in this late 1930s screwball comedy that centers around a movie studio, two oddball writers (Cagney and O'Brien), and an unwed mother (Wilson) with her baby Happy. Happy's rise to superstardom is amusing, provided you can keep up with Cagney's mile-a-minute mouth. But Wilson is just plain grating as the ditzy blonde, her voice reaching into octaves meant only for dogs.

Going Places (1938) Review


Very Good
Cute flick has Dick Powell and Anita Louise in a mistaken-identity comedy common of the era, with Ronald Reagan and Louis Armstrong turning in supporting roles! Powell is a salesman who impersonates a famous horseman in order to sell more clothes at a steeplechase, only for Louise to become instantly smitten. Throw in a crazed horse that can only be tamed by the song "Jeepers Creepers" (which was originally written for this movie), and you've got a kooky -- though ultimately much too screwball -- good time.
