Resolved Question: What are you next Netflix
Devil Doll (1964)
Renowned hypnotist and ventriloquist the Great Vorelli (Bryant Haliday) thrills London with his amazing dummy Hugo (David Charlesworth). But when Vorelli infuriates his mistress, Magda (Sandra Dorne), after seducing a wealthy heiress, he tricks his dummy into keeping Magda quiet -- very quiet. This underrated British horror treat features some spooky images by cinematographer Gerald Gibbs.
The Furies (1950)
Fiery ranch owner T.C. Jeffords (Walter Huston, in his final role) incurs the wrath of his feisty daughter Vance (Barbara Stanwyck) when he gets engaged to rich socialite Flo Burnett (Judith Anderson). But when T.C.'s actions imperil Vance's good friend, she vows bloody revenge. Acclaimed director Anthony Mann's searing frontier drama, set in the New Mexico territories of 1872, finds the fierce Stanwyck at the top of her game.
I always loved Barbara Stanwyck ever since I saw her in Double Indemnity, my favorite film noir film. How can you not love a girl that looks like this and is so tough!

Resolved Question: Why did we invade Iraq in
In 2003, an unstable, human rights-abusing dictatorship with previous hostilities with the U.S. was believed by the CIA to be in the process of creating weapons of mass destruction. We invaded, and found no weapons.
Now, another unstable human rights-abusing dictatorship with previous hostilities to the U.S. openly and publicly conducts tests of weapons of mass destruction. This time around, these include nukes. The United States is opposed to an invasion.
The question is, what has changed?
