    Conspiracy theories are only perpetuated because people go looking for them!

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, 1947....Stars Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison and George Sanders.








    Despite being set in London and on the English Coast and having mostly English actors and actresses, this movie was shot entirely in California and along the central Pacific coastline.

    The word "muir" means "sea" in Scots Gaelic. Many times sailors are said to have been "married" to the sea, or that the only woman they ever loved was the sea.

    This was one of Twentieth Century Fox's biggest box-office hits of 1947, and was ranked tenth amongst the year's top grossers.

    This film has a 100% rating based on 17 critic reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Mrs. Miniver, 1942...After first-choice Norma Shearer rejected the title role (as she refused to play a mother), Greer Garson was cast. Although she didn't want the part either, she was contractually bound to take it and won the Academy Award for her performance.




    In real life, shortly after shooting was completed, Greer Garson married Richard Ney, who plays her son, Vin, in the film.

    Winston Churchill once said that this film had done more for the war effort than a flotilla of destroyers.

    The Vicar's final rousing speech was printed in magazines like "Time" and "Look". President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered that it be broadcast on the Voice of America, and copies of it were dropped over Europe as propaganda. This speech has come to be known as The Wilcoxon Speech, in tribute to actor Henry Wilcoxon's stirring delivery of it.
