Comrade Gorbachev was once a Hollywood ‘Contender’? PART II

In the Part I of this installment, it was revealed that Mikhail Gorbachev, former president of the fallen USSR, was portrayed by the once renowned Hollywood actor and hidden father of Burt Reynolds AKA Marlon Brando, Rod Steiger.

Now, we shall also learn that Steiger – after faking his death as “Lou Costello” in 1959 – and before transitioning into the former Soviet president, became one of network television’s most beloved courtroom lawyers, a man named – wait for it folks – MASON.

Not only was it discovered the career arc of both Serling’s and Falk’s official biographies merge chronologically, but Serling’s features connections to the US military, connections which we’ve witnessed, time and again, represent a suspicious and rather pertinent commonality between nearly every celebrity entertainer/popular culture figure examined in the past.

Further examination of Falk’s biographies revealed telling connections to the prominent family of American merchant bankers, the Rockefellers, and to the historically prescient socio-political formulation of anarcho-communism/Marxism. Continue reading “Into The Twilight Zone with Detective Columbo”
