Henry Louis Gates Unveils Africa’s Hidden Figures In New Docu-Series

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is unveiling the hidden figures of Africa’s history in his latest docu-series, “Africa’s Great Civilizations.”

Told through an assortment of analysis, interviews and personal exploration, the three-part, six hour PBS documentary series finds the Harvard professor chronicling 200,000 years of Africa’s history and culture. Five years in the making, the series explores everything from the rise of Shaka Zulu to the transformation of South Africa thanks to gold and diamonds, to King Lalibela’s reign in Ethiopia to the spread of Christianity throughout the continent.

The Emmy Award-winner wanted the docu-series to stand as an accurate exploration into the complex history of Africa’s kingdoms and empires. “Africa has been recognized as the ultimate ‘other,’ the negation of the West,” Gates told The Huffington Post. “And that started when the slave trade reached its zenith and it got even worse when the colonial era started after 1884 and the Berlin Conference, when the Europeans just carved up Africa, as if there was no people living there, and just gave chunks of it to each other. And so they created an image of African people as subhuman, primitive, static, and soulless.”

“People thought not only were Africans primitive and savage, but isolated,” he continued. “And what we show is, over and over again, some parts of Africa were in contact with the larger world. The Africans were just as curious about people outside of Africa, just as much as people outside of Africa were about Africans.”

To help bring Africa’s wealth of untold history into education curriculum, Gates is currently developing an educational site with the PBS network, in addition to writing a companion book to the series with historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood, which will be released next year.

“We’re trying to reeducate the American people. All of us have been let down by the school system,” Gates said. “My goal is to get the history of the people of color integrated into school systems. Whether it’s 200,000 years of African history or the last 500 years of African American history, or the last 50 years of African American history, that’s my dream.“

The three-night premiere of “Africa’s Great Civilizations” airs Feb. 27 on PBS at 9/8c.

This 13-Year-Old Raised Money For Over 800 People To See ‘Hidden Figures’

At only 13 years old, aspiring astronaut and devoted “Hidden Figures” fan Taylor Richardson is leading quite the philanthropic cause. 

Earlier this week, Richardson was deemed GoFundMe’s February “Hero of the Month” after raising $ 17,000 through the fundraising website for people throughout the nation to go see the hit movie. “Hidden Figures” is centered around three black women mathematicians who played a pivotal role in sending the first American into space.

“I hope [the movie] inspires them to know they can do anything they put their mind to,” Richardson told The Huffington Post earlier this week.  

Thus far, Richardson and her mother have given over 800 people the opportunity to attend a free screening of the movie (with snacks) and ― for a number of them ― receive the Hidden Figures book.

Richardson said her initial infatuation with “Hidden Figures” came after her regal experience attending The White House Hidden Figures in Space Exploration event in December where the movie was screened. 

“It shows me that women, and especially African-American women, can do anything a guy can do and anything a white male can do,” she said of the movie. 

Richardson said her initiative to send people to free screenings initially targeted young girls, but she and her mother later decided to broaden the audience. 

“We wanted to have other groups see not just what three black women did, but just to know [of our] contributions,” Richardson’s mother said. 

While the two know the movie won’t compel everyone to aspire towards having a career in space, like it has with Richardson, they hope that through the Hidden Figures books, kids will at least be able to develop a heightened interest in literacy, something Richardson has regularly been working towards in her community.

When she was nine years old, Richardson said she encountered a young boy at a hospital who didn’t have easy access to books. After that, she decided to hold broke drives in her hometown in his honor called “Taylor Takes Flight With A Book.”

To date, Richardson has collected and donated over 5,000 books in Jacksonville and read to over 300 children. 

She’s also worked on an anti-bullying campaign with the CEOs of Florida First Coast YMCA and Girl Scouts of Gateway Council.

But Richardson’s philanthropic trajectory isn’t what’s made her mother most proud: it’s her resilience. 

“I tell people all the time: what makes me most proud of Taylor is not what you hear and all these success stories, but how she handles her failures,” her mother told HuffPost.

But the persevering spirit of Richardson ― who was bullied, held back in the second grade and once struggled with literacy ― can best captured in the way she turned around her ADHD diagnosis. 

“She calls ADHD: Abundantly Different Happily Divine,” her mother said. “I hope I live to see her go Mars.”

Is Beyoncé Having a Boy and a Girl? The Hidden Clues in Her Surprise Twin Pregnancy Announcement

Beyoncé only just announced that she’s pregnant with twins, and already the internet is looking for clues as to the sexes of the new additions.

The 35-year-old singer — already mom to 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy — shared Wednesday that she and husband Jay Z‘s family would be “growing by two.”

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” she captioned a photo of herself on Instagram. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.”

The picture features an underwear-clad Beyoncé kneeling in front of an overflowing wreath of flowers, rubbing her baby belly.

But internet sleuths looking into the serene shot may have found some hidden clues that reveal the sex of Beyconé’s two upcoming bundles of joy.

They point to the small pink bow on her calloped embroidered tulle Agent Provocateur bra — which could indicate that one of Bey’s babies is a girl.

The next clue? Beyoncé’s powder blue Dauphine panty bottoms by Liviara — which could suggest that the other baby is a boy.

Either way, there’s no doubt Beyoncé will be a loving mom. She told Elle in 2016 about the joy motherhood brings her. “I just want my child to be happy and healthy and have the opportunity to realize her dreams,” she said.

Though usually private about her life with Jay Z, 47, Beyoncé previously talked about the joy she felt the first time she conceived — a pregnancy that, sadly, ended in miscarriage.

“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” Beyoncé revealed in her 2013 HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream. “You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”

People Across The U.S. Are Raising Money For Girls To See ‘Hidden Figures’

“Hidden Figures,” the hit film that tells the story of three black women who helped NASA send a man into orbit, has been praised for putting women of color in the spotlight. 

That’s why people across the country ― teens, teachers and community leaders ― are raising money through GoFundMe to ensure young girls can see the movie.

One of those people is Taylor Richardson, a 13-year-old aspiring astronaut from Florida, who wants to send 100 girls to see “Hidden Figures” at a theater in Jacksonville, Florida. She also wants to raise money on GoFundMe for the girls to have snacks and get a copy of the “Hidden Figures” book.

Richardson first saw the movie at a screening at the White House and has since seen it three more times. She said the film was “amazing.”

“I cried, I laughed, I got angry and then got determined to not let others’ impressions of me because of the color of my skin impact how my life will be,” she told The Huffington Post. “These black women did something I never knew about, and it’s not in any history books that I’ve studied thus far.”

As of Friday, Richardson has raised $ 2,540 of her $ 2,600 goal. She found the girls she plans to take to see the film from organizations that have impacted her life like the YMCA, Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, See The Girl and Journey Into Womanhood. She wants them to go home after the movie feeling as inspired as she did.

“This movie instills that us girls can dream big and make it even when odds are against us,” she said. “Most importantly I want girls to know that, like boys, they too can excel in STEM with hard work.”

Several teachers across the country have also started GoFundMe campaigns to help send their students to see the influential film. After reaching his goal of $ 1,000, Peter Modlin will be taking girls in second, third, fourth and fifth grade who attend the Detroit elementary school where he teaches. Modlin told HuffPost he hopes the students learn to dream big after watching the movie. 

“I want the girls to see this movie in hopes that a lightbulb might go off,” he said. “A lightbulb that signifies a belief in the opportunity to do or be anything they want to be, if they work hard to achieve that goal.”

Like Richardson and Modlin, Phyllis Marshall raised money on GoFundMe so local girls could see “Hidden Figures,” and has since taken them to see it.

On Jan. 7, she took 50 girls from Roberts Family Development Center in Sacramento, California, to the theater. She’s worked with the center, which is in a low-income community and provides after-school care, for years. Through GoFundMe she raised more than her $ 1,500 goal, which provided transportation, snacks and tickets to the movie. Marshall said “they loved it.”

Marshall was glad to be able to show the girls that women can succeed in science, technology and mathematics. She was especially thrilled to show them that women of color and their success deserve a place on the big screen.

“I certainly hope as many young girls get to see that movie as possible.” 

Other teachers and community leaders are raising money for kids to see “Hidden Figures, too. Check out their campaigns below.

Hidden Figures Movie Exposes A New Real Figure

When I saw Hidden Figures, two thoughts entered my mind. I experienced gratitude, and I felt shock. To further explain, Hidden Figures is receiving many stellar as well as controversial reviews. From its Oscar talk to its soundtrack discussions, Hidden Figures is a movie that is stirring up major conversations in the entertainment and science worlds. And it is a film that I personally felt compelled to review. For I am a real life “hidden figure.” I am a real female rocket scientist of color. While watching the film, I was simultaneously inspired and surprised by what I relived through its scenes.

2017-01-06-1483705555-9552915-hiddenfigurestheblackmedia2016.png


Hidden Figures Movie starring Janelle Monáe, Taraji P. Henson, and Octavia Spencer

Directed by Theodore Melfi and written by Theodore Melf and Allison Schroeder, the Hidden Figures film depicts the real life struggles of three genius women Katherine Johnson (played by Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (played by Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (played by Janelle Monáe), who were instrumental in launching astronaut John Glenn (played by Glen Powell) to space and changing the way NASA viewed the technical competence of African-American women. The film is set during a time where racial segregation, sexual segregation and educational segregation posed great hindrances to not only women, but especially to women of color. Through the character’s struggles brilliantly portrayed in the 20th Century Fox film, the audience is cleverly hypnotized into fully understanding the racial challenges of three separate segregation stories interwoven into one uplifting plot. The film does an extraordinary job in honoring these three women who helped reenergized the world as the first African-American Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) experts during the American Space Race in the specific year 1961. To add, the math in the film was accurately applied. Naturally, these aspects of the film are inspiring. However, some movie scenes left me unsettled.

I am a young “hidden figure” who is choosing to be exposed. I helped build and launch NASA rockets through mathematical calculations as a rocket scientist for nearly ten years at a major aerospace company. I won many awards as a rocket scientist. And Hidden Figures reintroduced a bit of shock to me. I was surprised that my experiences were almost identical to Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson’s stories. When I watched the struggles these ladies faced in the film, tears ran down my face. I intimately knew how they felt. Despite being a scientist nearly 40 years after these ladies’ stories, I was brought back into time where my experiences were being reenacted in this film. Three personal experiences jumps from the screen onto this page.

1. Women bonded together in the bathroom to for a powerful purpose.

2017-01-06-1483705923-121340-hiddenfiguresHF228_rgbe1483623580966.jpg

Dorothy Vaughan, played by Octavia Spencer helps women prepare for their technical roles.

A moving scene in Hidden Figures surrounds a bathroom scene. Katherine Johnson is newly assigned to a work group with only white men, and the “colored ladies bathroom” is nearly a half mile away from her work station. She runs there, because no other colored women’s restrooms are near. When she arrives, the restroom is her safe haven. It remains so until she is caught in the rain. She returns to her desk late and soaking wet. From her experience, her NASA boss, Al Harrison (played by Kevin Costner) makes a leadership move to passionately remove segregated restrooms from his NASA locations.

My real life experience is very similar to the bathroom scene which happened nearly 20 years ago. When I was first hired as a rocket scientist, I received the best piece of advice in the ladies’ bathroom. On my second day, this man (who later would become one of my biggest supporters and professional leads) walked passed me and his mouth dropped open. He looked at me puzzled. He began walking slowly around me as if I was a museum exhibit. I was new scientist, and I honestly did not know how to respond to his actions. He circled me again, never saying a word. He looked at me as if I was an alien from another planet. At the time, I was unaware that he was surprised that a woman had been hired into the engineering group. But soon after, I discovered he was one of the “supportive guys.”

Moments later, some of the administrative assistants in clerical roles, motioned for me to join them in the ladies’ bathroom. They introduced themselves and told me that they were supporting me, because they were awaiting to see another female engineer. And they told me that whenever I am upset, never let the male engineers see me cry. When I asked why, they explained that a couple of the men would do anything to provoke emotion from some women. They needed reason to suggest giving a man the job instead of a woman. It was not everyone, but just a few men. These particular men would label the women as “too emotional to handle the work.” These ladies encouraged me go to the ladies room whenever I felt emotional.

I was in disbelief, until I witnessed this fact for myself. Numerous times I saw other women challenged. I was often challenged too. But I always remained calm and took their advice. In the process, I unknowingly turned off my feelings in order to execute the work. I did this action for the sake of science. My love of science overruled any experience, and it gave other women hope. And in turn, these ladies gave me hope. Later, several administrative assistants asked me to mentor their young daughters who have since become young scientist, doctors, lawyers and civic leaders as a result.

2. Extra challenges still exist for women of color in STEM.

2017-01-06-1483706310-9020718-KatherineJohnsonatherdeskatLangley.jpg

There was a scene in the movie where Katherine Johnson is told that “there is no protocol for women to give technical briefings” by Paul Stafford (played by Jim Parsons). Yet through the support of her executive boss, she is invited into a boardroom to explain the last necessary calculations to successfully help the Friendship 7 mission land given its reentry trajectory. When she enters the room, men look at her in shock, because she is a young woman of color. Equally she looks like a deer caught in headlights, until she relies on her mathematical skills to calm her and prove her value on the NASA Friendship 7 program.

When I saw this scene, tears ran down my face. I literally knew how Katherine Johnson felt in the inside. I thought to myself, Katherine went through this too?

Through watching this scene, I relived my character-defining moment as a scientist. After much hard work, I became an expert in knowing how explosions could occur within and outside of rockets. I understood rocket designs and authorized engine tests. I stayed at work for long hours after everyone left because I knew I had to perform twice as hard, like the character Katherine Johnson.

As an expert, I would attend design briefings with over 200 men. I was lucky if I saw another woman in the room. And the most defining moment is when a program manager suggested that he present my work instead of me. Like in the movie, he said, “There is no protocol for a young woman like yourself to give these technical briefings.”

Thankfully two weeks earlier, one of the more seasoned female African-American engineers took me aside and warned me that there had never been an African-American woman to present the work that I was creating. And fortunately, she gave me empowering words to use.

I said to this program manager, “There may not be a protocol. But I am fully prepared to give the presentation of my work that I have created within the last 6 months. I am the author of the work, no one else.”

He did not anticipate my response, and he miraculously agreed. I gave the presentation to 500 NASA officials. The mathematics gave me comfort as I presented. Later he thanked me for my presentation. And other engineers called me the “Engine News Reporter,” because my presentations were the most organized anyone had ever seen. Through being the first African-American female at the age of 23 to give a NASA briefing of this type, I inspired other program managers to give opportunities to other young engineers.

3. True leaders are individuals who stand up to inequality and promote knowledge in the face of challenge.

2017-01-06-1483706841-1160404-ccthidden122304.jpg

Katherine Johnson shakes John Glenn’s hand in the movie Hidden Figures.

All characters give a stunning performance in life-transforming scenes paired with well-placed soundtrack music produced by Benjamin Wallfisch, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. In the movie, Dorothy Vaughan oversees the calculation area despite not being a supervisor. She foresees that the new IBM machine will replace all her co-workers’ jobs. Courageous, she learns a new programming skill and shares her knowledge within her group. Further, Mary Jackson realizes that in order to become the first African-American design engineer, she must petition a court to attend a segregated school for engineering classes. Al Harrison dismantles segregation activities in his offices to promote team knowledge. And Jon Glenn stands up for Katherine in making sure she returns to the program.

Leadership is standing up for what is right, even though it is easier to run away.

I too had a defining leadership experience through an unconventional occurrence. I am truly thankful for the various managers, directors and CEOs who supported me. They did their best to guide me given that I was unique. But one day, my experience almost turned fearful. Not everyone was excited to promote knowledge. I just won Engineer of the Year Modern Day Technology Leader Award, and I was the youngest from the company to receive that type of award. Then one day after work, I went outside to find my car deeply scratched from end to end with racial slurs, in anger from my award. I reported it. The company did everything it could. Unfortunately the person was never caught. But, I had a choice. I could become angry. Or I could become powerful.

I will always thank my manager Steve for helping me be courageous during that time. He told me that terrible things may happen in life, but I show my strength by how I respond. He said that I was at the company for a powerful reason. And it was my job to keep my head focused on the science. And my work will always speak for itself. He did everything he could to provide access to higher training for me. And I will always be thankful for Steve’s executive mentoring. Although I had to repaint my entire car and be escorted at nights, I realized that sometimes we must go through challenging situations to become the leaders we wish to become. With Steve’s leadership and support, I later channeled my emotions into producing life-changing science that changed how NASA views System Safety and Reliability practices. This work later landed me into a new leadership role where I supported Mission Control during Space Shuttle launches. It was in that room where I was helped launch my dear friend, retired NASA astronaut Robert Curbeam to space, who flew John Glenn on his last mission to space. Sometimes life comes back around in a full circle.

In conclusion, I highly encourage audiences to watch Hidden Figuress. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Jim Parsons and Kevin Costner all give phenomenal performances. They honor the women who made my career as a rocket scientist possible. I honor Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson’s courageous life stories, and I am thrilled that this film was made.

Coeliac Disease the hidden epidemic!: Discover The Amazing Health Benefits Of Gluten Free Foods And Avoid Coeliac/Celiac Disease Including Any Gluten Allergy Today!


Without doubt, we may all like the taste and flavor that gluten add to our diet but it is also well known that it causes far reaching debilitating effects on many that it is not welcome in most homes as it’s brand-named unhealthy! However, the truth is that Gluten is a type of protein found in some certain foods like barley, malts, wheat, triticale and rye. In fact, Gluten is typically used to improve the taste or flavor of foods; besides, it can also act as stabilizers and thickeners for foods. As a matter of fact, it is usually branded as dextrin. Nevertheless, when we talk of a gluten free diet, we are referring to a diet which does not consist of foods containing the gluten protein. In that way, one can actually avoid the reaction to it as a result of allergies! But you need to bear in mind that the only type of therapy which has been clinically proven to help persons with a condition known as celiac or coeliac disease is to consume gluten free diet. This is why we shall be focusing on some gluten free foods with health benefits so that we can enjoy! Well, before I forget, let me say that other medical conditions that also respond to gluten free diet includes dermatitis herpetiformis and wheat allergies. And, it may interest you to know that oats may not qualify as a gluten free diet as a matter of fact medical professionals are yet to be certain that oats do not aggravate any reaction in persons suffering from celiac disease due to cross contagion in handling amenities. Now, the expression “gluten free” is used to display either a total absence, or a microscopic quantity of gluten. Well, where the total elimination is almost impossible …as in several cases, gluten free indicates there is a mild or harmless quantity of the protein since a total lack is doubtful. Yes, as a matter of fact, you need to bear in mind that ingesting less than 10mg of gluten daily is not likely to trigger any allergic reactions especially in persons that are sensitive to gluten.

Hidden Figures Stars Kevin Costner, Jim Parsons and Glen Powell Open Up About Death of John Glenn

For the stars of Hidden Figures, the death of hero astronaut John Glenn makes the film all the more meaningful.

“He was a brother, he was an uncle, he was a father,” Kevin Costner, who plays NASA manager Al Harrison in the movie, told PEOPLE of Glenn on Saturday at a special screening of Hidden Figures in New York City.

“Then there’s the idea of how a man lived his life and I realized, that man, he lived his life. As a soldier, as an astronaut, as a senator. He was not only in control of the planes he flew. He was in control of his life.”

Glenn died on Thursday, surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, according to a hospital statement.

Glen Powell portrays the astronaut-turned-U.S. senator in the film about three African-American women who provided NASA with the key mathematical data used to get Glenn to space in the program’s first successful space mission.

He told PEOPLE that playing Glenn caused him to see the famed astronaut in a new light.

“I think the more you fall in love with him, the more you start to look at him like a grandfather that you’re really proud of,” he said at the screening.

“It really does feel like a loss. But at the end of the day, in 95 years, there’s not anybody I think has accomplished more in that amount of time,” Powell said.

He added: “ affected so many people, inspired so many millions. It’s a loss. But at the same time, what a celebration of life.”

Jim Parsons, who plays Paul Stafford, said receiving the news of Glenn’s death while promoting such a movie was a “slap in the face.”

RELATED VIDEO: In Memoriam: John Glenn

“I would’ve been saddened and surprised no matter when the news came out,” Parsons told PEOPLE at the event. “But it’s a little ironic for him to pass away just within days of us doing all this stuff for this movie that’s introducing three new faces of the space movement that we’ve never known of before.”

He continued: “The beauty of it is that man, John Glenn, that man who just passed away, has, for our lifetime, been such the face — or at least a face — of NASA and the space movement. He was such an integral part of bringing someone like Katherine Johnson into the room.”

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by author Margot Lee Shetterly. The screenplay was co-written by Allison Schroeder and director Theodore Melfi.

Hidden Figures hits theaters Dec. 25.

Dominique Dawes On The Historical Significance Of ‘Hidden Figures’

Dominique Dawes wants to help push the stories of three visionary black women to the forefront of America’s history after taking a special interest in a new film.

The three-time Olympic gymnast has shared her celebrity influence in her studio promotion of Fox 20th Century’s upcoming film, “Hidden Figures.” Starring Taraji P. Henson (as Katherine Johnson), Octavia Spencer (as Dorothy Vaughn) and Janelle Monáe (as Mary Jackson), the film highlights the untold true story of three African-American women mathematicians who provided NASA with integral data during astronaut John Glenn’s historical orbit in 1962.

Following her discovery of the trio’s inspiring story in June, Dawes told HuffPost that it was the perfect opportunity for her to promote “such an inspiring” movie. During the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Dawes helped to introduce the film’s trailer on the NBC network. 

“I know I’ve been blessed to inspire thousands of young girls with the desire to step inside the gymnastics gym, just as I know Simone Manuel being the first African-American to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming is going to inspire so many more young African-American girls to jump into the pool,” she said.

“I know this story is going to inspire thousands and thousands of young African-American girls to get involved in science and technology and engineering, and math. I’m excited to promote it, but I’m excited to see it, because I know it’s gonna touch thousands.”

Similar to the trio breaking barriers in their respective field, Dawes has helped paved the way for athletes of color including Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles. During the 1996 Summer Olympics, the Maryland-native became the first African-American to win an individual Olympic medal in women’s gymnastics.

She is also the first African-American to win an individual Olympic medal in artistic gymnastics.

Though there was a lack of black representation in the sport during her milestone journey, Dawes says she is proud to be associated with a film ―by introducing the first trailer ― that will inspire people to pursue their dreams.

“As a young person I didn’t need to see someone that looked like me, or come from the same environment as me to achieve or break a barrier,” she said. “And I think some people don’t need to see people that look like them, but some people do. They need to see someone in the gymnastics gym or someone in the pool, or someone working in NASA for them to say ‘oh, if they can do it, I can do it, too.’

“I love the fact that ‘Hidden Figures’ is going to inspire those group of girls that maybe need that little boost to say, ‘Hey, take an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. You might be able to break down a barrier, as well.’”

In terms of advice for other people vying to break barriers in their respective fields, the 39-year-old says people should embrace and celebrate their “uniqueness” and pursue their talent with passion.

“I think a lot of people do not feel as if they’re special or do not feel as if they’re gifted,” she said. “And I think if you put things into perspective and recognize how unique each and every one of our stories are, hopefully it’ll encourage someone to celebrate that uniqueness about them.”

“Hidden Figures” is set to hit theaters on Jan. 13. Check out the film’s trailer below.

Smiles Mean Money in France, But Hidden Benefits Are Even More Enriching

“A person who smiles a lot is either a fool or an American.”
— Russian adage

The French government has launched a new  campaign  to make its citizens smile in an effort to promote a more welcoming environment for tourists. But science tells us that French authorities will be beating their heads against the wall if they really think they can coax aloof Parisians to put on a happy face.

Because, well, there’s no smiling in France.

Or so say psychologists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who have found that the most expressive nations —  those with citizens who are quickest to crack a smile – are those with heavy immigrant populations. That puts the homogeneous France near the bottom of the list with Russia and Japan. Among the leaders: Canada, Brazil and the good ol’ U.S.A.

So, what is it about living in the world’s melting pots that puts smiles on the faces of their citizenry? Simply put, a smile is the mother tongue. It bridges language barriers, predicts trust and signals friendly intentions among people of disparate origin.

And conversely, it is a lack of smiles, among other things, that has given France a reputation for being a difficult place to visit, especially if you don’t speak the language.

This isn’t the first time the French have tried to legislate smiles to convey warmth to tourists. The current effort is similar to campaigns in  2003  and 2009 , when the tourism board set up “smile ambassadors” at the nation’s most-visited spots. But by all accounts, the efforts of the police du sourire fell flat. Those smiles turned – or stayed – upside down.

What Happens to Our Brains When We Smile

There is fascinating research about the power of an upturned mouth. Smiling activates the release of neurotransmitters, including dopamine and serotonin, that help  fight off stress. Having  too little of these brain chemicals has been linked to depression. When we smile, we also trigger the release of “happy hormones,” including  endorphins, the same chemicals that give us that “runner’s high” after exercising. Even aping a smile can spark a feeling of  happiness  and  reduce stress. Charles Darwin was the first to suggest that one’s emotions could be enhanced by one’s expressions, positing that just the  act  of smiling produces positive emotion.

Fast forward more than 100 years and “positive emotion” leads off renowned positive psychologist Martin Seligman’s five-sided PERMA model of the traits that foster well-being. According to Seligman, there are two kinds of smiles, the “Duchenne smile” and the “Pan American” smile. The Duchenne smile (named for neurologist Guillaume Duchenne) is involuntary and genuine. It is a broad smile that forms wrinkles on the outer edges of the eyes (i.e. crow’s feet). On the other hand, the Pan Am smile (the forced smile of flight attendants from the long-defunct airline), is inauthentic. It involves only the muscles of the mouth. (To see if you can spot the fake from the real smile,  take this quiz  from the BBC.)

But back to our poker-faced friends around the world: In the UW-Madison study, researchers examined the psychology of smiling in 726 people from nine countries and compared the results for each country with its immigration numbers. Participants were asked what constituted a good reason to smile, with options like, “is a happy man,” “to sell you something,” or “feels inferior to you.”

The results? Countries with more immigration over the last 500 years were more likely to interpret the smile as a happy or friendly gesture.

In countries with less diverse pasts, such as France, Russia and Japan, the act of  smiling  is more complex. Japanese people will grin to  mask negative feelings. The Japanese tend to control their expression of emotion so much so that people there have been  given instruction in the art of the smile. Meanwhile, the French are so notorious for not smiling that the British tourism group VisitBritain released a guidebook with tips for U.K. hoteliers to avoid offending guests from other nations. “Don’t exchange a smile or make eye contact with anyone from France who you do not know,” the guidebook states.

But can we equate the act of smiling with true happiness? In a paper called “The French Unhappiness Puzzle,” economist Claudia Senik argues that France’s “cultural mentality” makes the French far less happy than their wealth and lifestyle would predict. Senik’s research suggests that French unhappiness is due in large part to “multi-dimensional” dissatisfaction and a low level of trust in other people. She says policies to address unhappiness in France should start in early childhood.

A smile, real or fake, is a good starting point, and the bigger the grin, the better. Researchers at  Wayne State University analyzed the smiles of 230 Major League Baseball players culled from their 1952 trading cards to test how positive emotions affect longevity. The intensity of the players’ smiles was compared with life data for the men, controlling for body mass index, education, career length and other factors. As it turned out, the players with the broadest smiles lived seven years longer.

The Big Picture

The UW-Madison researchers believe there are public policy implications that come with exposure to, and understanding of, diverse cultures living within the same borders. For example, said lead author Paula Niedenthal, citizens “may be more or less willing to pay for universal healthcare, because they empathize differently with in-group and out-group members.”

So let’s hope the French Smile Revolution is a winner this time around. It’ll build trust among tourists and natives alike, and lift moods all around. Personally, I hope the friendly efforts penetrate deeper than a superficial strategy aimed at fiscal gain, because we don’t have to excavate ancient history to see how the smile has been  used as a  propaganda  tool.

Here in the free world, I highly recommend smiling. And go all the way. You can fake it ’til you make it, but the Duchenne smile is a  more powerful mood changer  than the perfunctory one flashed at the Pan Am jet-setters.

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls — Part II

One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.

Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.

Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:


1. Massacre at Central High (1976)

Dutch director, and former cameraman for the legendary Russ Meyer, Rene Daalder was hired by producers to direct an exploitation film set in a suburban high school with all the expected sex, nudity and violence that defines the genre. What they got instead was something totally unexpected: David (Derrel Maury) a sensitive, but extremely tough kid, transfers to Central High, where he reconnects with childhood pal Mark (Andrew Stevens) who is part of the school’s ruling clique, led the Hitler Youth-esque Craig (Steve Bond) who rule over the student body like a police state. When David stands up to their bullying of other, weaker students, the clique retaliates, crippling David, only to find themselves being picked off one-by-one, having finally messed with the right wrong person. Although it certainly contains the above-mentioned exploitation elements, Massacre is a thinly-veiled metaphor for the rise of Fascism in society, brilliantly executed by the filmmakers and its young, attractive cast (female lead Kimberly Beck was one of the great beauties of her day). Highly influential upon dozens of later “teen” films, most notably Heathers, the film has been embroiled in a rights battle between its producers for decades, keeping a proper DVD/Blu-ray release and restoration from happening. Named by Roger Ebert as one of the ten best films of 1976, Massacre at Central High is a unique work that is alternately unsettling, hilarious and very sexy.


2. Quadrophenia (1979)

Inspired by The Who’s second, eponymous rock opera, after the classic Tommy, Quadrophenia is one of the greatest youth movies ever made, easily standing tall next to Rebel Without a Cause, Easy Rider, Over the Edge, and more. Phil Daniels plays Jimmy, a disaffected 19 year-old done with school but still not grown up, making as meager a living as a working class lad can in 1965 London. His only sense of belonging and identity comes from being a Mod, youths who related to post-modern popular culture in their dress (sharp suits and short haircuts), musical taste (The Who, modern jazz) and vehicles (Vespa scooters). Jimmy pops blues (amphetamines), gets into brawls with Rockers (leather-clad kids who ride motorcycles and have tastes still rooted in 1950s outlaw culture) and pursues the elusive, beautiful Steph (Leslie Ash). Jimmy’s struggle to fit in and define himself is incredibly moving. When he reconnects with an old school pal (a young Ray Winstone) who turns out to be on the “wrong side,” Jimmy’s anguish is palpable, as is his final, stunning act of rebellion, played out on the White Cliffs of Dover. Watch for Sting in his film debut as Ace Face, leader of the Mods, who’s charismatic image masks a sad reality.


3. Zardoz (1974)

In an interview with director John Boorman earlier this year, I told him what a huge fan I’ve always been of his sci-fi film Zardoz, that I’ve seen it eight times, and I still don’t know what the hell it’s about. He laughed and agreed that he wasn’t quite sure, either. Sean Connery is Zed, a primitive warrior in a future world divided into two camps: the poor savages and the privileged immortals. The savages worship the god Zardoz, a flying stone head that disperses guns and wisdom (“The Penis is evil! The Penis shoots Seeds, and makes new life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the Gun shoots Death and purifies the Earth of the filth of Brutals. Go forth, and kill! Zardoz has spoken.”) Zed hitches a ride on the head and finds himself in the Vortex, home to the immortals, including the beautiful Consuela (the appropriately beautiful Charlotte Rampling), throwing the balance of the world off-center. Even watching this film stoned doesn’t quite make it add up, but it’s a stunning, wonderful ride nonetheless. New Blu-ray release makes it shine that much stronger.


4. Vanishing Point (1971)

Vanishing Point is the greatest existential chase/road picture ever made. The plot is so simultaneously simple and complex, it’s worthy of Camus: Kowalski (Barry Newman) is a professional driver who is hired to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger from Denver to San Francisco in 15 hours. Along the way, he breaks every law governing speed on the books, sparks a cross-country manhunt by every trigger-happy law enforcement agency known to man, and becomes a folk hero to the audience of DJ Super Soul (Cleavon Little), who gives hourly updates on Kowalski’s progress to the rebellious youth of the day. Vanishing Point is one of those films that runs an hour and forty minutes (and in the European cut, which we prefer, a bit longer) and has maybe ten pages of dialogue: in short, it’s pure cinema. Directed by Richard C. Sarafian, who was primarily a character actor, and knocked this 90 mph fastball out of the park.


5. Electra Glide In Blue (1973)

Another existentialist masterpiece masquerading as a murder mystery/policier, Electra stars Robert Blake as John Wintergreen, a pint-sized Arizona Highway Patrolman whose Napoleon Complex gives him a fire in the belly for bigger, better things: namely a detective’s gold shield. When a hermit is found dead from a shotgun blast in his desert shack, Wintergreen sees the case, which has more to it than initially meets the eye, as his ticket to the big-time. The only directorial effort of James William Guercio, known primarily as being manager of the group Chicago (who make a memorable cameo as a band of murderous hippies), who wisely spent a big chunk of his budget hiring the great Conrad Hall to shoot his film, Electra is one of the greatest-looking films of that hallowed cinematic decade that was the ’70s. Blake gives his finest (and most ironic, given how his life played out) performance, with his monologue toward the film’s devastating climax (“Loneliness’ll kill you deader than a .357 Magnum”) one of the most heartbreaking speeches ever committed to film.


6. Witchfinder General (aka The Conqueror Worm, 1968)

The UK has a film ratings system that goes back to the early 20th century, 1912 to be exact. By the late 1960s, films like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Bonnie & Clyde and The Graduate pushed the need for such a system in the U.S. to its breaking point. A few films released in 1968 helped that final straw break. This was one of them. Telling the true story of the infamous Matthew Hopkins (Vincent Price in his greatest, least hammy performance), England’s infamous “witch hunter” who, with his assistant Stearne (Robert Russell) executed more than 300 people, mainly women, during their two to three years of ‘witch hunting’. Considering that 500 people in total were executed for witchcraft in England between the late 15th and late 18th centuries, it means that Hopkins was responsible for two thirds of these executions during a period of three years. Ian Ogilvy is the dashing young soldier who vows revenge upon Hopkins after his attack on his beautiful fiancée (Hilary Dwyer, both beautiful and a fine actress). In addition to a literate screenplay, inspired by Edgar Alan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm, the film’s then-unprecedented graphic violence, sex and nudity (still strong by today’s standards) was notable not only for its depiction, but for not being simultaneously exploitative. Director Michael Reeves, just 24 at the time of filming, gives the proceedings a matter-of-fact realism that makes it all the more disturbing. Sadly, Reeves would die of an accidental overdose a year after the film’s release.


7. El Topo (aka The Mole, 1970)

The first season of Saturday Night Live had one of their greatest fake commercials, showing Dan Ayckroyd and Gilda Radner arguing over whether an aerosol can’s contents contained a dessert topping or a floor wax. Chevy Chase then cheerfully enters, declaring “Shimmer is a floor wax AND a dessert topping!” Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo is much the same: It’s a spaghetti western. It’s a Christ allegory. It’s a comedy. It’s a tragedy. It’s profane. It’s reverent. It’s graphically violent and sexual. It’s peaceful and beautiful. And that’s just the first twenty minutes! Largely regarded as the first “midnight movie,” El Topo was lucky enough to be seen by John Lennon and Yoko Ono during a New York screening, who suggested to their then-manager, the notorious Allen Klein, that he distribute it through his newly-formed ABKCO Films, becoming an instant hit among the counterculture, yet never completely connecting with mainstream audiences, for obvious reasons.


8. Black Sunday (1977)

John Frankenheimer is the only director to rate two films on both lists. Based on Thomas (Silence of the Lambs) Harris’ first, and only, non-Hannibal Lecter novel. When a Black September terrorist camp is raided by a Mossad team, led by Commander Kabakov (Robert Shaw), all its denizens are wiped out, save the comely Dahlia Ilad (Marthe Keller) whom Shaw catches au naturele in the shower. The rest of the movie has Kabakov and his lieutenant (the late Steven Keats) trying to correct this mistake. Not only was Dahlia the most dangerous terrorist there, she is planning on hijacking the Goodyear Blimp with an unhinged Vietnam vet (Bruce Dern, at his best) and blowing up the Super Bowl! Prescient, to say the least, and almost unrelenting in its level of tension and suspense, Black Sunday also gains its brilliance from an utterly objective screenplay by Ivan Moffat, Ernest Lehman and Kenneth Ross, showing the clear POV of the Israeli, Palestinian and Americans involved. Released to be Paramount’s first blockbuster of 1977, the film got critical raves across the board, but tanked at the box office. Paramount released a terrific DVD about a decade ago, and now we wait anxiously for the Blu-ray this film, the best thriller of the ’70s, richly deserves.


9. Targets (1968)

After paying his dues working with “King of the Bs” Roger Corman for several years, Peter Bogdanovich was given the opportunity to write and direct his first film, a low budget affair that would have to be shot quickly. Bogdanovich and his then-wife/collaborator Polly Platt (along with uncredited work from the great Sam Fuller) came up with this ingenious little thriller, loosely based on University of Texas sniper Charles Whitman, about a deranged Vietnam vet sniper (Tim O’Kelly) and a veteran horror film star (Boris Karloff, in one of his final films) whose lives intersect at a drive-in theater in the film’s climax. Bogdanovich himself co-stars. The film was released only a month after the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, causing many theaters to refuse bookings and patrons to stay away. It’s now regarded as an overlooked masterpiece, rightfully.


10. Kiss Me Deadly (1955)

Director Robert Aldrich, best known for The Dirty Dozen and The Longest Yard, had his finest hour with this brilliant, bizarre reinvention of Mickey Spillane’s Fascist detective Mike Hammer. After reluctantly rescuing a damsel in distress (Cloris Leachman, her film debut) on a deserted highway, private eye Mike Hammer (the great Ralph Meeker) finds himself embroiled in a Byzantine plot of murder, graft, vice and an A-bomb! Arguably the single greatest influence on the filmmakers of the French New Wave, Aldrich broke new ground with his use of music, dialogue, sex and violence in a brutal noir that remains potent at age sixty. In 1955, however, it was too far out to connect with audiences, and was viewed as a box office failure. You’ll never forget the final scene on the beach.

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls — Part II

One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.

Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.

Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:


1. Massacre at Central High (1976)

Dutch director, and former cameraman for the legendary Russ Meyer, Rene Daalder was hired by producers to direct an exploitation film set in a suburban high school with all the expected sex, nudity and violence that defines the genre. What they got instead was something totally unexpected: David (Derrel Maury) a sensitive, but extremely tough kid, transfers to Central High, where he reconnects with childhood pal Mark (Andrew Stevens) who is part of the school’s ruling clique, led the Hitler Youth-esque Craig (Steve Bond) who rule over the student body like a police state. When David stands up to their bullying of other, weaker students, the clique retaliates, crippling David, only to find themselves being picked off one-by-one, having finally messed with the right wrong person. Although it certainly contains the above-mentioned exploitation elements, Massacre is a thinly-veiled metaphor for the rise of Fascism in society, brilliantly executed by the filmmakers and its young, attractive cast (female lead Kimberly Beck was one of the great beauties of her day). Highly influential upon dozens of later “teen” films, most notably Heathers, the film has been embroiled in a rights battle between its producers for decades, keeping a proper DVD/Blu-ray release and restoration from happening. Named by Roger Ebert as one of the ten best films of 1976, Massacre at Central High is a unique work that is alternately unsettling, hilarious and very sexy.


2. Quadrophenia (1979)

Inspired by The Who’s second, eponymous rock opera, after the classic Tommy, Quadrophenia is one of the greatest youth movies ever made, easily standing tall next to Rebel Without a Cause, Easy Rider, Over the Edge, and more. Phil Daniels plays Jimmy, a disaffected 19 year-old done with school but still not grown up, making as meager a living as a working class lad can in 1965 London. His only sense of belonging and identity comes from being a Mod, youths who related to post-modern popular culture in their dress (sharp suits and short haircuts), musical taste (The Who, modern jazz) and vehicles (Vespa scooters). Jimmy pops blues (amphetamines), gets into brawls with Rockers (leather-clad kids who ride motorcycles and have tastes still rooted in 1950s outlaw culture) and pursues the elusive, beautiful Steph (Leslie Ash). Jimmy’s struggle to fit in and define himself is incredibly moving. When he reconnects with an old school pal (a young Ray Winstone) who turns out to be on the “wrong side,” Jimmy’s anguish is palpable, as is his final, stunning act of rebellion, played out on the White Cliffs of Dover. Watch for Sting in his film debut as Ace Face, leader of the Mods, who’s charismatic image masks a sad reality.


3. Zardoz (1974)

In an interview with director John Boorman earlier this year, I told him what a huge fan I’ve always been of his sci-fi film Zardoz, that I’ve seen it eight times, and I still don’t know what the hell it’s about. He laughed and agreed that he wasn’t quite sure, either. Sean Connery is Zed, a primitive warrior in a future world divided into two camps: the poor savages and the privileged immortals. The savages worship the god Zardoz, a flying stone head that disperses guns and wisdom (“The Penis is evil! The Penis shoots Seeds, and makes new life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the Gun shoots Death and purifies the Earth of the filth of Brutals. Go forth, and kill! Zardoz has spoken.”) Zed hitches a ride on the head and finds himself in the Vortex, home to the immortals, including the beautiful Consuela (the appropriately beautiful Charlotte Rampling), throwing the balance of the world off-center. Even watching this film stoned doesn’t quite make it add up, but it’s a stunning, wonderful ride nonetheless. New Blu-ray release makes it shine that much stronger.


4. Vanishing Point (1971)

Vanishing Point is the greatest existential chase/road picture ever made. The plot is so simultaneously simple and complex, it’s worthy of Camus: Kowalski (Barry Newman) is a professional driver who is hired to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger from Denver to San Francisco in 15 hours. Along the way, he breaks every law governing speed on the books, sparks a cross-country manhunt by every trigger-happy law enforcement agency known to man, and becomes a folk hero to the audience of DJ Super Soul (Cleavon Little), who gives hourly updates on Kowalski’s progress to the rebellious youth of the day. Vanishing Point is one of those films that runs an hour and forty minutes (and in the European cut, which we prefer, a bit longer) and has maybe ten pages of dialogue: in short, it’s pure cinema. Directed by Richard C. Sarafian, who was primarily a character actor, and knocked this 90 mph fastball out of the park.

The Hidden Ways Dior and Chanel Inspired Minnie Mouse

Minnie Mouse has been having a major fashion moment as of late, but when you look back through Disney‘s history you realize…she’s pretty much always been having a moment. Vans is the latest to immortalize her as a fashion icon, including the fabulous little rodent in its special Disney capsule collection, released earlier this summer. But long before the world had ever heard of a fashion collaboration, Minnie was brushing elbows with some of the style world’s biggest names.

minnie-mouse-1937

Minnie and friends in 1937

The iconic polka-dot skirt? It was inspired by Coco Chanel‘s designs from the 1920s. Twenty years later, her original outfit became a touch more voluminous due to Christian Dior‘s infamous New Look (the same postwar runway styling that influenced women’s wardrobes around the globe). And while you’d be forgiven for identifying the pillbox hat exclusively with Jackie Kennedy., Minnie can lay some claim to it too.

“She’s always evolved through the decades. Like in the ’30s, her pillbox hat with the daisy was such an icon that women’s hats started to reduce in size significantly,” Soo Koo, a vice president within Disney’s Consumer Products division, told Glamour. “The character has really aligned itself with fashion.”

Shoppers and fashion-observers might have noticed the recent spate of Minnie-connected offerings (like Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s and Dazed‘s high-fashion photo shoot), but don’t be confused: =The character has been in this game for a long time.

minnie-mouse-shoes

A look at the process from Vans’ recent collaboration with Disney.

“She’s one of our most universally recognized characters,” Koo said. “We’ve been collaborating with designers for the past 10 years, from Comme des Garçons to a high-end Italian furniture designer. Lanvin even did a dress for Minnie to celebrate her 20th anniversary in the parks in Paris.”

The Vans connection itself might have fresh stock to offer, but it’s a relationship that’s familiar to Minnie and friends.

“We have a relationship that dates back to the [Vans founder] Van Doren days, which began in the late ’60s, early ’70s,” explained Vans’ head designer Rian Pozzebon. “Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Winnie the Pooh were actually featured on Vans footwear back in the ’80s, so when we worked with the Disney group [this time], it felt right to blend their classics with our classics.”

The ‘Hidden Gay Agenda’ Movie Test

There has been much speculation of late from conservative Christian commentators about a “hidden homosexual agenda” in the animated Disney film Frozen. The theories go something like this: In Frozen, one of the characters has a hidden power that she tries to suppress, but ultimately she learns to accept it. This is a metaphor for the homosexual agenda, the conservative theorists theorize, because initially her power (her secret quality) is hidden from the rest of the world, but eventually she learns to accept this part of herself, and she “comes out,” so to speak.

These theories were quickly lambasted by critics as ridiculous and far-fetched. But let’s not be too hasty. If we take the theories seriously, there may be some value in them. If we apply the same reasoning to other films, we may discover that Hollywood has been pushing a secret gay agenda for decades.

I have developed a “hidden gay agenda” movie test using the logic of the conservatives who are criticizing Frozen. Applied to any number of movie classics, this test proves to be enlightening.

The test is simple. There must be three elements in a film for it to have a hidden gay agenda:

1. The main character possesses a quality that is different from everyone else, and…

2. …the quality is hidden or suppressed until…

3. …the quality is accepted and/or celebrated.

Let’s put some films through the test to determine whether or not they contain a hidden gay agenda!

The Wizard of Oz

1. Dorothy has special powers in her ruby-red slippers, and…

2. …those powers remain hidden until…

3. …she embraces their ability to take her home.

Result: This is a no-brainer. The Wizard of Oz has a huge hidden gay agenda. Duh. The message is: “There’s no place like gay.”

The Ten Commandments

1. Moses is a Jew who is raised as an Egyptian prince, and…

2. …his Jewishness is hidden for years, until…

3. …he accepts who he is and leads all the Jews out of Egypt.

Result: Strong hidden gay agenda. The half-naked, oiled-up men in skirts put this one over the top. It is a wonder that Christian conservatives allow their children to read the Bible with the presence of this strong gay undercurrent.

The Sound of Music

1. Maria is a nun who harbors a secret love for Captain Von Trapp, and…

2. …her love remains suppressed during hours and hours of singing, until…

3. …she learns to “climb ev’ry mountain.” She returns to embrace her love. A huge celebratory wedding ensues.

Result: Hidden gay agenda. Admittedly, Maria and Captain Von Trapp are heterosexual, but there are tons of subtle gay messages throughout. The lonely goatherd is probably gay. Lyrics like “raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens” are pretty darn gay. And Rolfe? He wears lederhosen and rejects Liesl. C’mon.

Star Wars

1. Luke Skywalker discovers that he is a descendant of a great Jedi, and…

2. …his connection with the Force remains largely untapped until…

3. …he embraces the Force and destroys the Death Star.

Result: As Yoda would say, strong the hidden gay agenda is. Luke’s embrace of the Force evens earns him a medal from Princess Leia.

Carrie

1. Carrie is telekinetic, and…

2. …she tries to suppress her telekinesis, until…

3. …her classmates drop a bucket of blood on her at the prom. Then she fully embraces her powers, lets loose and maims or kills just about everybody in her path.

Result: Terrifyingly full of a gay agenda. How do straight people even watch this movie? When Carrie unleashes her powers, the results are violent and turn out horribly for the normal (straight) people. Perhaps it is palatable to heterosexual audiences because — SPOILER ALERT! — Carrie ends up dead. Or does she?

Brokeback Mountain

1. The main character, Ennis, is gay in a seriously heterosexual environment, and…

2. …he keeps his homosexuality a secret, until…

3. …well, actually, he never accepts or celebrates his homosexuality.

Result: Since condition 3 is not met, there is no hidden gay agenda in this film. It has an overt gay agenda and does not require a hidden one.

The Harry Potter movies

1. Harry Potter discovers that he is the child of a wizarding family, and…

2. …his connection with his wizard powers remain largely untapped until…

3. …he learns to use his powers and destroys Voldemort.

Result: Wait, isn’t this the same plot as Star Wars? Whether it is or not, it is gay, gay, gay.

Some of these films are favorites of mine. I have seen them multiple times. No wonder I ended up gay. Hollywood’s hidden homosexual agenda is working!

The Hidden Valley Mystery

However, a near-tragic accident for pal Tuan, unpleasant new neighbours across the street, two vicious dogs, a break-in at his uncles Danforth printing shop, and other exciting events gradually piece the high-tech puzzle together, until Mike and his buddies daringly bring three criminals to justice.
