Movement Training for the Modern Actor: Mark Evans
Fredric March (1897-1975) was one of the most dynamic and versatile actors of his time. On the screen, he created memorable performances in such classic films as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Death Takes a Holiday, Les Miserables, A Star Is Born, Nothing Sacred, One Foot in Heaven, The Adventures of Mark Twain, The Best Years of Our Lives, Death of a Salesman, and Inherit the Wind. Along the way, he was nominated five times for an Academy Award and won the coveted statuette twice. He had an equally distinguished career as a stage actor - appearing in such acclaimed Broadway productions as The Skin of Our Teeth and Long Day´s Journey Into Night - winning two Tony Awards - including the very first presented to an actor. Despite this great record of success, Fredric March isn´t as well remembered today as some of his peers (Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, James Stewart) because unlike them, he never developed a recognizable screen persona that followed him from film to film. He was always characterizing - always hiding his own personality behind that of the character he was portraying. He was the consummate actor who richly deserves to be rediscovered. 1.

All throughout recorded history, politicians have taken bribes from outside parties to push certain agendas, either profiting themselves or helping others profit through illicit and illegal actions. We know this common practice is wrong, and yet we all tend to look the other way. Before examining these actions, should we look at the commonalities? Just how did deep state actors from LBJ to Obama hijack the country that we love? How did the Clinton Foundation change the course of American domestic politics and international policy? On the surface, it may seem as though the course of history has diverted and deviated from the path throughout our time as a nation, but who is leading the ship? Who is in control? And, more importantly, why? What are their motives? As ordinary Americans, we are the ones who suffer the repercussions. Let’s take a deeper look into the Clintons, the Bushes, Kennedy, Johnson, and even Donald Trump himself to see just how the deep state has impacted the world we love and the country we love. Motivated by money and power, deep state actors grasped control of this country long ago. Since the election of Donald Trump, they’ve been grabbing and grasping for any last shred of power that they once held over us. Understanding how these actors received their power is critical in understanding why they abused it. Through America Hijacked, we’ll take a critical look into the policies and practices of nearly every administration up until modern day to see just how the deep state came to be and how it hijacked America for their own personal benefit. Where does the issue lie? It lies in the fact that our elected representatives hijack our country, our principles, and everything that we stand for when they use their status and political power to cover up crimes and purposefully make conscious unlawful decisions that impact the lives of ordinary Americans. They do it all for the profit and (political) gains of 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Milroy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/146106/bk_acx0_146106_sample.mp3.
