THE GIRL IN THE KREMLIN (1957): BAD MOVIE REVIEW

Girl in the KremlinTHE GIRL IN THE KREMLIN (1957) – The tagline for this Golden Turkey should have been “STALIN’S BACK AND GABOR’S GOT HIM!” The world of Bad Movies is pretty thoroughly littered with hilariously lame films proceeding from the premise that Adolf Hitler survived his supposed death and plotted a Fourth Reich.

The Girl in the Kremlin gives equal time to Hitler’s equally insane but even more murderous contemporary Joseph Stalin.

Zsa Zsa Gabor – yes, Zsa Zsa Gabor – co-stars as TWINS in this movie which features Patty Duke Show regular William Schallert, so you can insert your own “Identical Zsa Zsas” song and joke here. (“They walk alike, they talk alike, they even get their heads shaved alike”)

Bald Zsa Zsa GaborAnd feel free to choose your preferred caption to the photo at right. Either: a) ONE … MILLION … RUBLES or b) Zsa Zsa Gabor IS Mrs Kojak, this fall on the CW! 

Adding to the joyously tasteless atmosphere of this flick is the fact that the guy playing Stalin is named Maurice MANSON! The Marilyn Manson and shock-rocker Hitler “Where Are They Now” Stalin jokes pretty much write themselves.

THE STORY: The Girl in the Kremlin begins in March of 1953, when in real life the subhuman piece of filth Joseph Stalin died. In this movie we see Stalin have a plastic surgeon transform a hapless stooge into a lookalike of the mad Soviet Dictator. (They Saved Stalin’s Face!)

Girl in the Kremlin 2The lookalike is killed and presented for burial while Stalin – who passed the time during the surgery indulging his famous fetish for watching a woman suffer a forced head-shaving – undergoes plastic surgery of his own to disguise his features. The murderous scumbag then flees Russia with – we are told – HALF THE MONEY IN THE SOVIET TREASURY plus a few aides including Nurse Grisenko, one of the twins portrayed by Zsa Zsa Gabor herself.

MOTHER JONES: PRESIDENT TRUMP STILL ANNOYS ALL THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO ANNOY

Trump taunting scumbags

A HEROIC MAN DRIVING AMERICA’S CORRUPT POLITICIANS CRAZY!

Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve often made it clear that my three “favorite” presidents have been: Democrat Franklin Roosevelt, Democrat John F Kennedy and de facto Third Party President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump rock starPresident Trump stands virtually alone – the outsider shaking up all the career criminals called Democrats and Republicans, who grow ever more frantic and irrational in their attempts to bring him down. EVERY DAY IS FUN WATCHING TRUMP INFURIATE ALL THE RIGHT CROOKS TO INFURIATE!

mother-jonesThe late Mary Harris Jones aka Mother Jones once again weighed in despite having been dead since 1930: “President Trump is an undeniable hero helping the working class and the poor of ALL colors every way he can while being attacked daily by America’s corrupt politicians and the bloated rich pigs who OWN those politicians.”

I had to cut her short because otherwise she goes on and on for hours about President Trump’s greatness, but Mother Jones DID go on to recommend the following links for keeping track of the Donald’s wonderful accomplishments:   Continue reading

NCCAA

POOL PLAY: DAY ONE

Warner Royals logo 2The 3 seeds – the WARNER UNIVERSITY ROYALS – won a pair of games yesterday. In Game One the Royals faced the 6th seeded TRINITY CHRISTIAN COLLEGE TROLLS. A 3-3 tie in the 5th Inning became a 7-4 Royals lead in the 7th and ultimately a 9-6 victory for Warner University Pitcher Andres Fernandez.

Game Six saw the Royals clash with the 10 seeds – the RANDALL UNIVERSITY SAINTS. Warner U limited the Saints to just 3 Runs and all of those came in the 6th Inning. The Royals peppered the scoreboard with Runs of their own throughout the game, slaughtering Randall University 14-3 behind Pitcher Jaryd Clary.

Bluefield Rambling Rams logoThe 2nd seeded BLUEFIELD COLLEGE RAMBLING RAMS likewise went 2-0 in Pool Play on Wednesday. In Game Four the Rambling Rams battled the 7 seeds – the COLLEGE OF THE OZARKS BOBCATS. The 9th Inning ended with the teams deadlocked at 5-5. Neither team scored in the 10th but in the 11th Bluefield College edged the Bobcats 6-5. Kody Gardere threw for the win.  

In Game Eight the Rambling Rams faced the 6th seeded TRINITY CHRISTIAN COLLEGE TROLLS. Bluefield converted a 3-1 advantage in the 3rd Inning into a 13-4 blowout triumph over the hapless Trolls. Alex Perkins was on the Mound for 9 Iron Man Innings for the victors. Continue reading

EVEN MORE MEDAL OF HONOR WINNERS FROM THE PHILIPPINE WAR (1899-1902)

With the Memorial Day Weekend coming up, here’s another seasonal post looking at Medal of Honor Winners in the overlooked Philippine War from 1899-1902.

Medal of Honor picFRANK C HIGH

Branch of Service: Army

Rank: Private First Class 

Citation: May 16th, 1899. Near San Ysidro in the Philippines. PFC High was yet another member of the legendary unit Young’s Scouts to receive a Medal of Honor during the Philippine War.

Along with 21 other members of Young’s Scouts, Frank charged across a bridge that the Filipino forces had set fire to. The 22 men rushed under heavy fire to cross the burning bridge before it collapsed. In one of those “Truth is Stranger Than Fiction” moments the soldiers routed roughly 600 Filipinos from their entrenched position.

George W MathewsGEORGE W MATHEWS

Branch of Service: Army

Rank: Captain

Citation: October 29th, 1899. Near Labo, Luzon. Captain Mathews, an Assistant Surgeon, was tending to officers and wounded of his unit when he came under severe fire from the enemy. Grabbing a carbine he returned fire and drove off the enemy soldiers attacking the patients under his care.

I like to think he shouted “Say hello to my little friend Hippocrates,” but I’m kind of weird.

OINGO BOINGO: GOODBYE, GOODBYE

masc chair and bottleWhen will people learn that – no matter what the time period – human nature will forever resist the notion that Bran is good for them? Anyway, here’s Oingo Boingo’s song Goodbye, Goodbye for this installment of Give Them A Shoutout Before They’re Dead. And since I’ve never watched a single episode of GOT the above lame joke is also the closest I’ll come to reviewing it. (Although I did laugh at the new online meme that Chaos isn’t a ladder after all … It’s a ramp.)

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: MAY 21st

Education indoctrination conveyor beltIt’s the time of year for graduation ceremonies and commencement addresses, two more formerly pleasant and reasonably nonpartisan milestones in life that have now been transformed by Democrat intolerance into ugly partisan exercises.

ONLY speakers who are “acceptable” to the most rabid, frothing at the mouth Democrat faculty members may speak to the graduates, otherwise those perpetual children rally their students to “protest” the speaker then hide behind their students to pretend it’s for THEIR sake that the speakers are not welcome.

Even worse, thanks to the Democrats at colleges and universities SEGREGATION is back and oh so very “woke.” More and more institutions are holding separate, “black only” graduation ceremonies thanks to “critical race theory” aka “bigotry with a self-constructed halo” and similar fascist notions considered fashionable by the Democrat faculty and administrators. CLICK HERE

democrats hate free speechAND DON’T WASTE MY TIME TELLING ME IT’S UNDER ONE HUNDRED DOING IT NOW. As we have seen there is NO independent thought among the Democrats who run these churches of intolerance and irrational thought. This will spread like all the other political bigotry pushed by Democrats. ALL of the fascism now imposed upon “educational” institutions by Democrats started out being dismissed as “limited to a hundred or so far-left colleges and universities.” And look where it has led.
