  1. That Hollywood Reporter piece is actually three stories combined into one. Which tells you that none of the stores in and of themselves are all that important.

  2. If it's one thing America doesn't need it's another insipid Hollywood World War II drama.

  4. I am bored with this idea, but something by David would make me watch just to see how it turned out.

  5. Maybe it's interesting to add that Willem Arondeus was also an openly gay member of the Dutch resistance

  6. Yes, it is interesting that this piece doesn't mention the fact that Willem Arondeus was gay; indeed, before he was executed by the Nazis, he instructed his lawyer to reveal to the public that he was gay, with the statement: "Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards."
