TCM’s Film Noir of the Week Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at 12:15 a.m. and 10 a.m is Michael Curtiz’s The Breaking Point (1950) with John Garfield, Patricia Neal, Phyllis Thaxter, Juano Hernandez and Wallace Ford (Plus: The Death of John Garfield!)

By David in TN

TCM’s Film Noir of the Week Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at 12:15 a.m. and 10 a.m is Michael Curtiz’s The Breaking Point (1950) with John Garfield, Patricia Neal, Phyllis Thaxter, Juano Hernandez and Wallace Ford.

This is the third time The Breaking Point has been on Noir Alley. This Saturday is an all-day tribute to the late TCM host, Robert Osbourne. We can expect Red Eddie Muller to wax lyrical on how HUAC and Joe McCarthy’s “witch hunts” killed John Garfield. Muller does that every time this film is shown.

John Garfield’s death was described ( in 1952 by the LA Times:

“John Garfield, 39, ‘tough guy’ screen and stage star, died of a heart attack in bed today in the two-bedroom Gramercy Park apartment of an actress friend, Iris Whitney.”

“Miss Whitney said he visited her at the apartment last night, became ill, and stayed overnight. She said she slept on a couch.

“Police were forced to break down the apartment door to investigate.

“They learned of the death through a routine report telephoned to the medical examiner’s office by a private physician.

“When they reached the apartment, the stage actress refused to permit them to enter. She said she thought they were newsmen.

“Garfield's wife received the news of her husband’s death in the Garfield apartment on Central Park West.

“She declined to see newsmen. Barry Hyams, a friend of the Garfields, said she was under the care of a physician and had been given a sedative. He said Mrs. Garfield expected Garfield home last night and became worried when he did not appear.

“Mrs. Whitney told police she had known Garfield about two months.”

[N.S.: “Mrs. Whitney”?!]

“She said she had dinner with him last night at Luchow’s Restaurant and they went to her apartment.

“She said they had coffee and that he had remarked: ‘I feel awful.

“He went to the bedroom, removed his clothing except for his shorts and T-shirt, and got into the double bed, she said.

“Miss Whitney said she decided to let him stay for the night and that she went to sleep on a couch in the living room.

“She awoke at about 8 a.m., looked into the bedroom and saw him still apparently asleep, she said.

“She said she went to the kitchenette, got some orange juice and placed a glass of it on a night table beside the bed.

“Then she tried to awaken him, but without success. She telephoned Dr. Charles H. Hammack, who pronounced the actor dead. Police said they found the glass of orange juice still on the table.

“They said Miss Whitney expressed concern about Garfield’s family, expressing hope they would not misinterpret his presence in her apartment.”

David in TN: We enjoy John Garfield’s movies. We’ll see if Red Eddie blames the “witch hunts” again in his Intro.

N.S.: Long ago, my late Mom (1930-2022) told me about Julie Garfinkle’s (“John Garfield” was born Jules Garfinkle) death. He died “in the saddle” with his mistress.

I later learned (from Phil Silvers’ autobiography?) he had been on a poker-and-booze binge for about 48 hours, before decamping for a roll in the hay with Iris Whitney. More recently, I learned that Garfield had long knowingly had a congenital heart defect. It’s a wonder he lived as long as he did.

Several hours passed, between John Garfield’s death and Iris Whitney’s performance. Numerous phone calls would have gone back and forth, and somebody had to very carefully concoct the story Iris Whitney told the cops, and coach her through it.

With the possible exception of Iris Whitney, John Garfield has had no bigger fan than David in TN. I always liked the guy, but under David’s influence, I have come to appreciate Garfield’s intensity more and more.

For instance, the first version of this story, Hawks, Hemingway, and Faulkner’s To Have and Have Not (1944), is the most famous, because of the sexual sparks that flew between a middle-aged Humphrey Bogart and a very young Lauren “Betty” Bacall. And those sparks were not just the stuff of dramatics. Soon after the picture wrapped, Bogie and Betty tied the knot.

However, although I like Bogie’s Harry Morgan, and even Betty Bacall, the secret star of To Have and Have Not is Walter Brennan, the greatest character actor of them all. (Walter was so towering that Hollywood passed an unwritten rule, first to cease giving him any more Oscars—he’d already won three, which made him the champ among actors for over 40 years—and then to stop nominating him any more. Thus, he was not nominated for this picture, or for Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), despite going toe to toe with Spence, and dueling him to a stalemate. And Spence was up for Best Actor for it.) The character Walter played, drunken first-mate, “Eddie,” had to be based on a real man, who was very important to Papa, because he would also appear in Hemingway’s posthumously published novel, The Islands in the Stream.

However, there are other problems with the 1944 version, primarily the dopey ending, in which Morgan and “Frenchie,” who have brutalized two Vichy policemen, act as if they’ll just go on as before, when the nazis would have tortured them to death.

And then you see Garfield as Harry Morgan. Although they both stood 5’7,” Garfield’s performance was head and shoulders above Bogart’s.

A problem with the 1950 version, is that Juano Hernandez, playing first mate, is a “magical negro” character. He’s angelic, while there’s nothing angelic about “Eddie.”

I realize that the American Film Institute voted Bogey the greatest “acting legend,” whatever that means, Garfield (and several others, including James Stewart, Spence, Alec Guinness, Freddie March, Jimmy C. and Laurence Olivier) was the better actor.

And where are her parents? Her mother (womb-donor?) went off the radar two months ago, and nobody even mentions her sperm-donor.

See how much information the powers that be can collect on a person, without serving any good end?

Do you remember the time Hemingway and Faulkner teamed up to write a Western tv episode?

By N.S.

Back during the 1930s and ‘40s and beyond, book lovers were in agreement: To Have and Have Not was Hemingway’s (1899-1961) worst novel. And yet, studio moguls and producers were obsessively in love with it. They made no fewer than three feature-length pictures of it in English, and tv versions.

It had the stuff dreams were made of in America (not to be confused with “America”). A tough, proud, very masculine White man in desperate straits. And keep in mind that Hemingway on a bad day was much better than any writer on his best day today.

Howard Hawks made it, with a script from, of all people, William Faulkner, under its own name, in 1944. Michael Curtiz made it as The Breaking Point (1950), starring John Garfield. And Don Siegel made it in 1958, as Gun Runners, starring Audie Murphy.

There’s no one perfect version, but as David in TN will tell you, and I concur, the most brilliant performance as the protagonist was given by John Garfield.

On April 17, 1956, an episode of the immensely popular Western TV series, Cheyenne (starring the late Clint Howard), aired, “Fury at Rio Hondo,” with the following story line (two versions):


• “In a politically turbulent Mexico full of revolutionaries, Cheyenne encounters a sexy, blond pickpocket singer in Rio Hondo. She arrived on the stage with a local rancher who owes Cheyenne money from a cattle deal and he wants to be paid.”

• “Cheyenne is in Rio Hondo, Mexico. He owns a pair of wagons used to haul freight in the area although it is dangerous due to Mexican Revolutionaries fighting the Maximilian French. The stage arrives with a beautiful blonde, Mississippi, and a local hacienda owner, Bolados. Cheyenne follows them into the cantina. Boladas asks Mississippi to join him for dinner. After she leaves, Cheyenne confronts him. He owes Cheyenne for delivering breeding stock to his hacienda from the U.S. but skipped out on paying. He agrees to pay Cheyenne the next morning. That evening Cheyenne sees Mississippi take Bolados' wallet so he follows her upstairs. He learns Bolados had the money on him plus he is leaving the next morning. At the same time friends of the cantina owner Manuel plead with Cheyenne to help smuggle a man for them but he wants nothing to do with the local politics. Back in the cantina dining area Bolados is killed by a stray shot from the French trying to stop the revolutionaries before Cheyenne is paid. He is forced by the circumstances into helping the revolutionaries to get him and Mississippi out of Mexico.—Anonymous”

Hmm. Sounds familiar. An American living abroad getting cheated by a crook who gets killed before he can run out on him. Note that, according to, Hemingway was “uncredited,” meaning the producer of Cheyenne ripped off America’s greatest story teller.

Only many years later, did someone at set the story straight. That web site has deteriorated something awful over the past 24 or so years, but when it does something right, I’ve got to give the devil his due.

[“gopers join reds to block fisa renewal bill.”]

This is the aclu’s opinion on fisa:

“The aclu considers the fisa act to be unconstitutional for several reasons including: the law was designed to mainly address terrorism threats, but in fact intercepts communications that have nothing to do with terrorism or criminal activity of any kind; and that ‘the government can create huge databases that contain information about U.S. persons obtained without warrants and then search these databases at a later point.’”

“On occasion, the aclu does make a legit point. I understand the need to monitor those who hate us and want to do us ill but how do you keep this kind of surveillance from being used against us? If I travel overseas and continue to read and comment on NSU, do I get tracked and put on some list? There are those that would define the kind of opinions expressed on NSU as being “terroristic,” and would love nothing better than to have our names gathered and stored as potential threats. It’s a conundrum and probably has no easy answer.

“Israeli news website ynet reported thursday that ‘tehran decided to either delay the strike or change the nature of its response to Israel’s attack on its consulate in damascus, likely due to warnings from the administration of United States President Joe Biden.”

[GRA: As I specifically said above, something gets cooked up to aid Biden’s re-election.]

“According to more:

“The outlet cited iranian semi-official news agency mehr as claiming the attack could happen ‘maybe tonight,’ but soon after deleting the video with the assertion.

Recalling the Original JEOPARDY! Host, Art Fleming, Including a Rare, Surviving Episode! (Video)

wednesday, april 10, 2024 at 1:05:00 a.m. edt

wikipedia entry on Art Fleming, the original JEOPARDY! host:

“in the early years of the Trebek version, he [Fleming] stated that he disliked the show’s new direction and the various changes that the revival’s producers had made. He disapproved of moving production from his native New York to Los Angeles, suggesting to a Sports Illustrated journalist in 1989 that filming in California made the show feel superficial and anti-intellectual...”

[RM: NOTE: that was when there was still a difference between NY and L.A.- remember when the latter was derisively called “La-La Land”?]

“He also claimed that the new show was too easy and he feuded publicly with the staff of the modern Jeopardy! over the nature of the clues, as he believed that the writers were inserting hints into the clues to make the correct response seem obvious and easy to guess.”

Fleming was pure class. The revived JEOPARDY! was never as good as the original.

Here’s a rare surviving episode:

Of cancer. We all know the story, Johnny Cochran, Judge Ito, Mark Fuhrman (the first time a White cop was vilified, in court, to obtain an erroneous verdict), Marcia Clark and a predominantly black race jury, who refused to give two White murder victims justice.

Instead, a pattern emerged, where black criminals were given the benefit of the doubt against the legal system (“White law”) and White cops began to be treated AS criminals. It continues to this day. Simpson, a truly evil negro, but no different than other blacks, in that they’re all capable of murder at the drop of a hat.

The Great Depression swept across the nation some 90 years ago, creating a level of despair that nearly crushed America. Washington was either indifferent or inept in responding to a calamity that threatened the very foundation of the republic. Today we have a new generation of "forgotten men" – and women. They too have lost faith in a Washington that seems to have dissolved into a dysfunctional collection of politicians far removed from the difficulties facing our citizens.

The Great Depression swept across the nation some 90 years ago, creating a level of despair that nearly crushed America.

Standing mute and dumbfounded on a breadline, tens of thousands became "forgotten men"; stripped of their jobs, their dignity, and their future. Washington was either indifferent or inept in responding to a calamity that threatened the very foundation of the republic.

Some of these forgotten men sought refuge in God, solace in the Bible, and prayed for salvation or, at the very least, a pathway that would lead them to a better life.

Others looked to a vibrant, dynamic president, who would inspire those victims of a national calamity that we are still a nation capable of greatness with the ability to rescue those forgotten men from devastating unemployment.

fed governor Lisa Cook is not just an academic fraud, but she's a plagiarist, too

From: Christopher Brunet from Karlstack <>

Subject: Lisa Cook's new plagiarism scandal was entirely predictable

I woke up yesterday to a Google Alert that Sheryl Sandberg's niece, Maya, was calling me racist in the Harvard Crimson.


From the quality of the logic and writing in this article, suffice it to say that it's evident she got into Harvard because she is Sheryl Sandberg's niece.

Maya's argument is, ''Chris Rufo & his allies (i.e. Karlstack) are leading a plagiarism witch hunt and creating the false impression that Black women disproportionately plagiarize.''

This morning, hilariously undermining Maya's narrative, I woke up to the news that another black woman had been popped for plagiarism.

The news comes courtesy of an exclusive City Journal and Daily Wire investigation which ''reveals additional facts that cast new doubt on Cook's seriousness as a scholar''.

I am not going to walk through each new instance of plagiarism. If you are interested in this scandal, go read that story directly, it is very descriptive. Give them some clicks, it's an interesting piece of reporting:

This article was co-authored by Chris Rufo and Luke Rosiak.

It includes a Karlstack shoutout:

Cook also seems to have consistently inflated her own credentials. In 2022, investigative journalist Christopher Brunet pointed out that, despite billing herself as a macroeconomist, Cook had never published a peer-reviewed macroeconomics article and had misrepresented her publication history in her CV, claiming that she had published an article in the journal American Economic Review. In truth, the article was published in American Economic Review Papers and Proceedings, a less prestigious, non-peer-reviewed magazine.

This is why I am so interested in today's story.

Lisa Cook and I go waaaaay back.

Longtime Karstack subscribers will be familiar with this saga, but the vast majority of my subscribers are brand new, so it is worth briefly recapping,


I wrote about Lisa Cook in my first ever Substack article all the way back in 2021 — in fact, this was the first thing I had ever written in my life, in any format — "The Federal Reserve Goes Woke":

The Federal Reserve Goes Woke
Navigate to, and rather than anything relating to monetary policy, you will be met with the following impenetrable statement front-and-center on the landing page: In the turgid tradition of Fedspeak, this word salad simultaneously means nothing — purposely crafted to be a series of vague platitudes — while also signaling their true intenti…

I conclude in that article that this scandal was entirely predictable:

"She is a fraud and an intellectual lightweight, yet no one is brave enough to point it out … I will end with pragmatic advice — directed at US Senators: please do not elect Lisa Cook to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The future of civilization may depend on it. Should she be nominated and passed, the damage that she will do will last for decades; she will use her promotion to push for more change and a downgrading of standards, and she will do it with a smile on her face as she pats herself on the back. She has dangerously insane ideas (e.g. requiring racial quotas for boards of publicly traded companies) and fascistic sympathies — you can be sure that she will fight for expanded powers for the government to tell large corporations who to hire, who to fire, what to make, what to buy, what to invest, how much to charge. Just as most Berkeley PhDs do, she thinks she knows what is best for you, and she will do everything in her power to compel businesses' political support."

— Chris Brunet, June 2021

I then was hired at the Daily Caller, at which point Lisa Cook was nominated to the Fed Board of Governor's, so I did some digging into her resume…..:

Which led to a Tucker segment:

Two months later, I did some more digging, uncovering her tenure packet

So…. she is not good enough for the Michigan State economics department — a mediocre department in terms of ranking — but she is somehow good enough for the Fed Board?

My investigation into her tenure packet generated another Tucker segment.

I was invited on Tucker's show several times as a guest, but sadly I declined as I was afraid of public speaking live in front of 4 million people.

Following that article, Cook's only respectable publication (which wasalready thoroughly debunked and shown not to replicate by economist Michael Wiebe) was further found to have more glaring fatal flaws by some internet sleuths:

And further covered by the inimitable Steve Sailer.

He again eviscerates her fraudulent paper in a series of detailed articles:

It is also worthwhile reading this EJMR thread :

And especially this thread from her anonymous colleague:

The dagger in the heart of this paper was then University of Chicago macroeconomist Harald Uhlig who buries it beyond any shadow of a doubt in a blog post.

Uhlig then published an op-ed in the WSJ explaining why Cook is a partisan hack:

Why is her debunked paper so important? Because her boosters pretend that her qualifications are better than they are. This includes her fields of expertise, the quality of her research, the nature of her policy experience, and her employment trajectory as a professor (such as describing her visiting position at Harvard as having been an Assistant Professor at Harvard).

She is portrayed by Democrats as some sort of macroeconomic genius. But the reality she is a midwit with a penchant for lying and scheming. Oh, and she isn't even a macroeconomist.

After this all went down, The New Yorker put out a hitpiece against me, indicating that I was over the target.


I was proud of my reporting at the time, because I single-handedly caused the US Senate to debate her credentials for several weeks, holding up her nomination.

Cook was almost denied as a result, but squeaked through.

I like to imagine that I gave the Republican Senate Banking Committee enough political capital via the Lisa Cook fight that they leveraged into getting Sarah Raskin denied.

The Left wanted 2 seats on the Fed, but instead, they only got 1.

That's real impact! Karlstack driving debates in the US Senate.

Anyways, that's the Lisa Cook saga.

We now have the latest chapter.

In addition to being a liar, hack, lightweight, and DEI activist, she is also a plagiarist.
