Ragin' Asian: Didn't she have stage 4 breast cancer five years ago? Tough lady.


She refused death on behalf of herself.

Story is John Wayne had to have six security guards hold him back from rushing the stage.

Probably what happened was that John Wayne was in the bathroom after drinking too many shots.

Here is some guy who did a whole lot of research on the "six security guards" story.

TLDR; no proof that it happened and it would not have required six men to hold back a 65-year-old man with one lung.

"She received backlash from other Academy members, with some booing during the ceremony, and she said John Wayne even had to be restrained from charging at her on stage."

I honestly had to looked this one up on why she refused. So there wasn't an offer she couldn't refuse?

It was probably one usher and a half-interested caterer lightly putting a hand on his chest as he drunkenly wobbled and slurred something about "EYEm gunnariperThrutout gannambsumBICH!!"

Don't think that asshole was ever not completely shiatfaced.

R.I.P LITTLE FEATHER SACHET

They just apologized. I guess we know why they were motivated.

The academy didn't want to see a history book with a note saying she never received an apology.

Not sure how many have seen a doc called Reel Injun. Nice history lesson on how aboriginal(?) Americans have been depicted in media to that point. Believe it streams on Amazon. Maybe on the PBS app.

There is a great scene from a John Ford era western with an actual tribal member speaking in their language. Because no one bothered to translate what he said, they didn't know he was spewing out vile insults that would have never been allowed under the Hayes code if producers cared enough to pay attention.

That native American should be on Mount Rushmore!

It would be best if Tunkasila Sakpe Paha (Six Grandfathers Mountain) were not defaced to begin with.

Anybody who read Hillerman knew this, and wonders if they are still at hit at the drive in

Nearly 50 years later, this summer the Academy says, "Endeavor to persevere."

I agree but my time machine is on the fritz.

Additionally, the captioning in the link I sent is NSFW. I apologize for not mentioning that in my post.

I can't even imagine the triggering this would induce if it happened today.

YOU try to cancel Marlon Brando. Even back in 1972.

WaPo reported the stage rushing story as fake, and it didn't emerge until 6 years after.
