As Mel Brooks said a few years ago.

Hollywood seem to report directly to Komintern when it comes to plot structure, theme and characters. All scripts must go through political screening with appropriate changes.

Re-education requires constant vigilance. Can't have peeps running around spreading conflicting message. The message has to be consistent, everywhere and easy to understand.

It is a pity. I think I have seen Blazing Saddles in Finnish public TV.

But then they don't do any dirty harries any more. :roll:



But then back to Blazing saddles, why was the bad guy named as Hedley Lamar?

I get instantly Hedy Lamarr. Quite a swell girl at her time. And smart one

...
Inventor

Although Lamarr had no formal training and was primarily self-taught, she worked in her spare time on various hobbies and inventions, which included an improved traffic stoplight and a tablet that would dissolve in water to create a carbonated drink. The beverage was unsuccessful; Lamarr herself said it tasted like Alka-Seltzer.

Copy of U.S. patent for "Secret Communication System"

Among the few who knew of Lamarr's inclination to inventiveness was aviation tycoon Howard Hughes. Lamarr discussed her relationship with Hughes during an interview, saying that while they dated he actively supported her "tinkering" hobbies. He put his team of science engineers at her disposal, saying they would do or make anything she asked for.

On one occasion, Hughes was trying to modify his aircraft designs to make planes fly faster. He asked her for ideas; "He relied on me," she said. Lamarr began studying the aerodynamics of birds and the shapes of fishes, afterward presenting him with sketched ideas to make wings on planes less square and more efficient. "[I] showed it to Howard Hughes and he said, 'You’re a genius.'"

During World War II, Lamarr learned that radio-controlled torpedoes, which could be important in the naval war, could easily be jammed, thereby causing the torpedo to go off course. With the knowledge she had gained about torpedoes from her first husband, she came up with the idea of somehow creating a frequency-hopping signal that could not be tracked or jammed. She contacted her friend, composer and pianist George Antheil, to help her develop a device for doing that, and he succeeded by synchronizing a miniaturized player-piano mechanism with radio signals. They drafted designs for the frequency-hopping system which they patented. Antheil recalls:

We began talking about the war, which, in the late summer of 1940, was looking most extremely black. Hedy said that she did not feel very comfortable, sitting there in Hollywood and making lots of money when things were in such a state. She said that she knew a good deal about munitions and various secret weapons . . . and that she was thinking seriously of quitting M.G.M. and going to Washington, D.C., to offer her services to the newly established Inventors’ Council.

Their invention was granted a patent on August 11, 1942 (filed using her married name Hedy Kiesler Markey). However, it was technologically difficult to implement, and at that time the U.S. Navy was not receptive to considering inventions coming from outside the military. Only in 1962 (at the time of the Cuban missile crisis) did an updated version of their design appear on Navy ships.

In 1997, they received the Electronic Frontier Foundation Pioneer Award and the Bulbie Gnass Spirit of Achievement Bronze Award, given to individuals whose creative lifetime achievements in the arts, sciences, business, or invention fields have significantly contributed to society. She was featured on the Science Channel and the Discovery Channel. In 2014, Lamarr and Antheil were posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
...


A smart female and very good looking all naked in the Austrian film.

So it goes.

You can't watch Dirty Harry anymore because it suggests there were black hoodlums in the civil rights era, and everyone in Finland knows this is white nationalist propaganda.

Did you see the preview for the new Death Wish remake?

We were treated with some scenes of our new and improved criminal killing vigilante apparently hunting down city gangland criminals. Who were nearly all white. :lol:


Political correctness has not only screwed comedy beyond recognition, but other genres too.

Have you seen any episodes of The Walking Dead.

All the white cannibalist rapist raiders are always 100% white. You don't see a single black guy ever hanging out with raiders. You see a black guy and you can bet he'll
- Ally with you on that instant
- Throw you a sniper rifle
- Is even more of a badass than you are
- Has amazing surgical skills
- Will act as your moral compass

See a bunch of white survivors? They're going to rape you and eat you, not necessarily in that order.

As for National Guard? They're the absolute worst. It's like the military only exist to start executing civilians at first sign of the apocalypse.
