Wall Street Meets Hollywood
With all this talk about bankers and finance in the news of late, Matinee at the Bijou posted a relevant double feature. Money Madness discusses Hollywood's portrayals of bankers and other men of means in film (think Mr. Potter in It's A Wonderful Life). In Hollywood Babylon to Wall Street Jungle, MATB reveals the second career of actor Richard Ney. He played Greer Garson's son in Mrs. Miniver, and her husband in real life, at least for a time. His second career was that of a successful author on the financial world.
