Staff Pick: The Match by Mark Frost

The year: 1956. Four decades have passed since Eddie Lowery came to fame as the ten-year-old caddie to U.S. Open Champion Francis Ouimet. Now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, Lowery has just made a bet with fellow millionaire George Coleman. Lowery claims that two of his employees, amateur golfers Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi, cannot be beaten in a best-ball match, and challenges Coleman to bring any two golfers of his choice to the course at 10 a.m. the next day to settle the issue. Coleman accepts the challenge and shows up with his own power team: Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game's greatest living professionals, with fourteen major championships between them.
In Mark Frost's peerless hands, complete with the recollections of all the participants, the story of this immortal foursome and the game they played that day-legendarily known in golf circles as the greatest private match ever played-comes to life with powerful, emotional impact and edge-of-your-seat suspense.

Staff Movie review: The Great Dictator (1940)

Probably best known for the impassioned speech near the end of the movie, The Great Dictator was one of Charlie Chaplin's most popular and controversial films. Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor in a Leading Role, Chaplin's satirical and comedic style was directed at the fascist powers of Europe, specifically Adolf Hitler. Interesting to note is that at the time of release, the United States had still not entered the war and Chaplin's condemnation of Hitler, Mussolini, fascism, and antisemitism helped change public opinion of the Axis powers and made some reconsider the policy of isolationism that had kept the United States neutral up until this point.
