Even if it was true that Hollywood was built by Poles, that wouldn't be frankly something to be proud of.

- How about you, are you proud of e.g. Orson Welles, John Huston, Howard Hawks, John Ford, Sam Peckinpah...?

In reality, Hollywood was 'built' by so-called Polish Jews, who, in some cases, have preferred to conceal their Polish connection.

Not that we consider it a great loss.

Today Hollywood is crap, but in the past it didn't use to be so. - Does any one of you know who Orson Welles is?

... Other Polish connections in Hollywood: Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity, Some Like It Hot) and Mel Brooks.

there must be some good ones out there :)

- So you regard e.g. the Wachowski Bros. as bad ones? Have you seen their Bound?

Well, and how do you regard your own aesthetic taste, istie...?
:)

TO DAVID: Bartkowiak is a director of photography (e.g. Pulp Fiction).

That's what I meant. I don't live in the past so it's hard to judge that.

Well remember that the so called "Jews" were Polish people. the only thing that devided them was the religion. They all grew up in the polish culture and was educated in polish schools.
