How far we have fallen from those 1940's ideals. Fast-forward to Hollywood of today.

Hollyweirdos obsession with religious cleansing of the culture continues unabated......what's left in their wake is a perverse sub-culture completely devoid of humanity. Imagine the LA train engineer, carrying hundreds of people, who is so selfish and empty-headed---so devoid of simple human emotion for his fellow-man---that he considers text-messaging more important than the safety of his passengers.

Surfing through movie channels---one sees formula films peopled by self-absorbed robotic actors yelling and screaming at each other----flaunting their emptiness, trying to make themselves as offensive as possible (and succeeding).

These individuals will do anything on film that will tear down social conventions. As the foundation of Western civilization falls brick by brick, Hollyweirdos are providing the battering ram.

The Motion Picture Alliance for the PERVERSION of American Ideals...

Director producer Sam Wood (1883 - 1949) was the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals' first president. Despite his film achievements, Wood's contribution to American cinema have been largely ignored perhaps because of his dedication to conservativism. His testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947 angered liberals since it helped underline the perception of Communist infiltration in the film industry.

Wood's daughter is actress K. T. Stevens (who was married 24 years to actor Hugh Marlowe---The Day The Earth Stood Still). KT Stevens appears as Mrs O'Brien in the famous I Love Lucy segment in which Lucy pretends she is a chair.

Son CHRIS MARLOWE is a sportscaster, and captained the 1984 Olympic Gold Medal Volleyball team.

BACKSTORY Director producer Sam Wood (1883 - 1949) was the MPA's first president. Wood was a former real estate broker, and acted in two-reelers around 1908, under the name Chad Applegate; in 1915 Wood became an assistant director to mega-director Cecil B De Mille. In 1919 Wood went to Paramount. In the 20s he handled the films of superstars Gloria Swanson and Wallace Reid, and was seen as a master craftsman turning mediocre material into entertainment.

In the 30s at MGM, Wood directed such diverse films as the classic Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera (1935) and the poignant Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939). In the 40s, he turned out hits such as Our Town (1940), Kitty Foyle (1940), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), The Pride of the Yankees (1942), Command Decision (1948), and the moving drama, Kings Row (1942) starring Ronald Reagan.
