.........經乾堃邀吃飯,陪宴華童公學校長C. S. Forter Carnp,他在華童公學二十餘年,今年將回國.....飯後我們同去看影戲,戲本名"The King of Kings"......全本皆依據四部福音.....文句皆採經文,甚能動人。唯演"靈跡" (Miracles)皆不刪,使人看了不快。其實刪了靈跡,這個故事也自能動人。

The King of Kings is a 1927 American silent epic film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille. It depicts the last weeks of Jesus before his crucifixion and stars H.B. Warner in the lead role.
Featuring the opening and resurrection scenes in two-strip Technicolor, the film is the second in DeMille's biblical trilogy, preceded by The Ten Commandments (1923) and followed by The Sign of the Cross (1932).

The Making of "Gone With The Wind"

adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel and produced by David O.

Published on May 1, 2014
Winner of eight Academy Awards - featuring the biggest stars from Hollywood's Golden Age and still number one in ticket sales - "Gone With The Wind" continues to captivate the world 75 years after it was made.

The Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin, is organizing a major exhibition about the making of "Gone With The Wind", the 1939 blockbuster film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Margaret Mitchell,

Opening in September 2014 the exhibition will be an historical examination into the making of this quintessential Hollywood film.

Before a single frame was shot, the film was embroiled in controversy for its depiction of race and violence in the Civil War-era Old South.

Drawn exclusively from the Ransom Center's David O. Selznick archive, the exhibition will include photographs, audition footage, storyboards, letters, and the legendary producer's own memos.

Visitors will get a behind-the-scenes view of the four year journey, from the purchase of the movie rights, to Hattie McDaniel's Oscar win as best supporting actress.

The exhibition will also feature three original gowns worn by Vivien Leigh, in her Oscar-winning performance as Scarlett O'Hara.

The newly conserved costumes will be displayed together for the first time in more than 25 years.

Visitors will be swept away by the tumultuous story behind the making of "Gone With The Wind" including issues of race and the film's depiction of history.

A beautifully illustrated book featuring never-before-seen images will serve as a permanent record to the exhibition.

A companion web exhibition will also be launched on the Ransom Center's website.

The 75th anniversary of this classic film provides an unique opportunity to showcase the Ransom Center's magnificent David O. Selznick collection and to provide a contemporary perspective on why "Gone With The Wind" remains one of the most iconic films of all time.

胡適記曾與主角 Raymond Massey 相識



先生又問:「你的孩子都看過《雄才怪傑》* ( Inherit the Wind ) 的電影嗎?那位代表田納西州檢察屬的皮雷耶**是在開庭之後兩天才死的,不是當場辯論之後便死的。這個故事當中有位新聞記者叫做曼鏗 (H. L. Mencken),真是一位了不得的人,他在美國的影響,正如中國的胡適之。我在美國讀書時,他辦《太陽報》,又辦一種《水星雜誌》,是月刊。他對美國的種種都來批判,一出來,就被賣空了,在路上看見的學生,差不多每人手中都有一本。《太陽報》是曼鏗吃飯的地方,《水星雜誌》是他好玩來辦的。這個中學教員史東尼被控的案子發生後,《太陽報》全力支持他一切的費用,就是將來敗訴之後必須罰款的話,也是由《太陽報》來負擔的。曼鏗是這件案子中的主要人物,不知你們的孩子注意到了沒有 ?」

 Inherit the Wind is a parable that fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial as a means to discuss McCarthyism.[2] Written in response to the chilling effect of the McCarthy era investigations on intellectual discourse, the play (and film) are critical of creationism.
