Strange Bedfellows

Ted Berkman, author of books about the Israeli military, died at 92 on May 12, 2006.

Dennis Hevesi in today’s New York Times:

“In World War II he served as the Middle East chief of the Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service, a predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency. In 1946, as a radio correspondent for ABC, he provided an eyewitness account of the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem by Jewish terrorists.”

He also worked as a screenwriter (with his brother-in-law Raphael Blau) on the films “Girl of the Night” (1960), starring Anne Francis, and  “Bedtime for Bonzo” (1951), starring Diana Lynn.

These are two of my all-time favorite actresses, and I am grateful to Berkman for providing them with roles.  I am less grateful for his Zionist politics.  Who he is in bed with now, God only knows.
