We always heard that Marlin Brando was a method actor.No one really knew what that actually meant..About 30 years back I read that Lee Strasberg of Godfather 11 Fame as Hyman Roth along with his daughter ran a method acting school.It was used by all the studios. Ever hear of a dialect couch ..they teach an actor to speak as an Englishman an as someone from American Southerner or a New Yorker. There is a sub or assistant director known in the industry as a dialect couch to teach a specific actor what to sound like.
We will tell you this much and by doing so letting the cat out of the bag..That in every movie or T.V.commercial that every gesture…,smile..frown whether it is an expression of joy..sorrow or shock whatever its is scripted. Actors go to a another special school .There they learn all types of expressions Gestures and Motions .. They have an instructor known an expression couch..There in that Hollywood school every gesture known to mankind are taught.The Hollywood studios know more about human nature than any Psychiatrist that ever walked the Earth.When you watch movie and you see someone touch their face quickly comb hair around their ear. everything is scripted nothing is done either haphazardly ..on accident or Improved. When they film a movie these expression couch’s are standing right to the actor though off camera not seen by the public..they are prompting the Star for the correct expression making sure that its done right. As many as 50 takes can be done before the”‘right smile” is achieved that the head director finds to his liking. Many unacceptable smiles filmed and wind up on the cutting room floor.
Unlike a Broadway play which is a continuous Motion Picture is not seamless..It a collection of practical still shots. I knew back in the late 1960’s a cinematographer clued me in . To be an actor requires an awful of studying both verbal lines and all the gesture and expressions and motions as well. It usually take anywhere from 6 months up year for,an actor to master the script.
In 1958 actor Denis Hopper while on the set of “Hell To Texas” refused Director Henry Hathaway’s order to play the scripts as it was written. He was being very uncooperative and wanted to act the scene his way. It was only after 85 takes that he finally capitulated and played out the script as the director insisted…For that he was Black listed until he got the role in easy rider co-starring with Peter Fonda.
I was on then Daily show with Peter Colbert back in 2001.. All though I never had to learn expressions they were at my house for nearly for 5 1//2 hours. At least 2 of those hours were to set up and break down then equipment..They filmed for 3 1/2 hours it was cut back to about a 4 minute piece.. However after all of the editing it still remains a truly fabulous piece of entertainment well worth watching. Enjoy the clip just click on the link that I

. First its a security nightmare ..We don’t know how many immigrants arriving have some sort of terrorist affiliation. All thought most may pass muster as few as 1,000 people who don’t can reck havoc in our Country.
In addition we have absolutely no sure way to vett those who arrive without or with questionable documentation which can not be validated due to uncooperative and unfriendly governments such as that of the Assad regime .
2.Take care of Veterans & Active duty personnel first.Veterans have not received a cola on their Pensions or Compensation disability checks for 8 years. Can anyone enlighten us to as what kind of mindset does our Elected Officials subscribe to keep and continue this kind of lopsided logic festering ?
At a time that our Naval statically numbers are at pre WWI levels and Active Duty Serviceman are not getting rank due to cutbacks and it no make matters worse it spilled over and is effecting our recruiting Station tally .
However plenty of money will be earmarked for these immigrants.The immigrants will receive and $1,800 resettlement tax free bonus plus SSI, Food Stamps,Medicaid,free child care and a subsided Apartment. We urge all government agencies and representatives earmark any future funds to active duty service men and Veterans first last and always Does American’s have a sign attached to our far heads that reads Shmuck?..” They all know all over the world Come to America and get all the goodies for free”.
The U.S.Health Care is broken..We at the Lerman Report have come up with the solution.
The Affordable Health Care Act even with the Republican revision is nowhere near the solution.The solution is a very simple in order to rectify this mess we call Health Care in America.
A while back My father received a bill from an unknown Doctor for $500. “Who are you”? He replied to this Doctor-and went on to say I never went to you” This Doctor said your absolutely right you never saw me before ..but remember last year when you were at the E.R.at your local hospital complaining of chest pains and took & they took an EKG?. Well I have a contract with that hospital for a 2nd opinion on interpretation of those EKG’S. My father said first of all I never contracted you. & 2nd this is a year later and had the EKG showed any heart irregularity they wouldn’t have release me.
The Doctor got loud “He turned his fraudulent scheme around and said “because of people like you is the reason why our health care is so expensive’. Another Doctor sends him a bill for “In Office Surgery $600. What surgery my father inquired The Office manager replied back “we pricked your finger for a drop of blood”.
Our plan is a simple one. Every Doctor will work for the Federal Government.. They will wear a uniform just like The Surgeon General. They will have a ranking and pay system just like as if they were Medical Officers in our Military with the exclusive difference is they can quit at anytime.. however if they decide to quit they will be permanently barred from practicing medicine or any of its related fields anywhere within the U.S and it’s Territories.
Let them all wave goodbye to that big Mercedes Benz along with the Sprawling Multi Million Dollar Homes that they now enjoy..Trust us they will never starve they will make decent living..This will weed out for a lack of a better term ‘The Bums in our medical system.
All these urgent care facility’s can be taken over under imminent domain or fresh new facilities can be opened up. We need dedication back in our health care field..More Marcus Welby and Ben Casey type Doctors as in years past .We are sure that The general public is in total agreement with us.

The American people does not need a permanent non elected government.
Well That what the F.B.I. is Paramount of being. Trump fired F.B.I. Director Comey and he can fire the entire Bureau if he chooses to do so. Whether it was a good decision or a bad decision as The Commander in Chief its his prerogative.
Each and every Federal Non Civil Service Employee works at the Presidents Pleasure. Trump as President has every right to give any Federal Employee the Heave Ho at any time. In a nut shell Comey apparently engaged in working to undermine impartiality and showing preferential treatment toward the Democrats. When it comes to partisan politics the F.B.I. should be like Caesar’s Wife above reproach..and sad to say it was not.
If The F.B.I. can go after the Presidents personal lawyer the let us ask everyone…what chance does the average U.S. Citizen have for non Gestapo style Justice? The targeting of Trumps lawyer Cohen is beyond political and vengeful..
Drain the Swamp..Drain the Swamp. Drain The Swamp.

It’s high time that Israel does what every Jew in his heart feels… recognize the 1915 Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks.We can understand that at one time and too long ago Israel Maintained good relations with Turkey..it respected the Turkish leadership as a trusted member of NATO…That ship has sailed. However little by little Turkish strongman and dictator has slowly moved into the corner of radical Islam.Israel has now become their #1 whipping boy.
He is publicly agitating and acting in the capacity of chief Rabble Rouser steaming up Hamas to both perpetrator terror and go to war against Israel..Therefore Israel no longer has to tiptoe…walk on eggs and worry about insulting Turkey.
Israel should immediately recognize this both tragic and barbaric act..It should’ve have been done years ago.Now is the right time !
