Louisa May Alcott in a war zone...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2020

...alongside Girls Learning to Skateboard:
Like Tinseltown's other adapters before her, Greta Gerwig made many changes in Louisa May Alcott's most famous book.

Most comical, but also just sad, would have to be the change which followed a reported declaration. "You know we can’t actually have [Jo] marry Professor Bhaer,” Gerwig is said to have said.

Too funny! This seems to have led to the complexified ending of Gerwig's film, which has fanpersons debating whether the pair actually got married or not.

Has anyone ever made this "adaptation" before? As far as we know, no one has.

That's the most comical of Gerwig's ch-ch-ch-ch-changes. The larger change is an adaptation which has been widely performed in the past, involving that school for those kids.

In the final chapter of Alcott's novel, Jo March and Professor Bhaer get married, then open and operate a school for destitute boys. Jo doesn't write a book. Instead, she's wasting her time doing this:
ALCOTT (chapter 47): It never was a fashionable school, and the Professor did not lay up a fortune, but it was just what Jo intended it to be—"a happy, homelike place for boys, who needed teaching, care, and kindness". ...Very precious to Jo was the friendship of the lads, their penitent sniffs and whispers after wrongdoing, their droll or touching little confidences, their pleasant enthusiasms, hopes, and plans, even their misfortunes, for they only endeared them to her all the more. There were slow boys and bashful boys, feeble boys and riotous boys, boys that lisped and boys that stuttered, one or two lame ones, and a merry little quadroon, who could not be taken in elsewhere, but who was welcome to the "Bhaer-garten", though some people predicted that his admission would ruin the school.

Yes, Jo was a very happy woman there, in spite of hard work, much anxiety, and a perpetual racket. She enjoyed it heartily and found the applause of her boys more satisfying than any praise of the world, for now she told no stories except to her flock of enthusiastic believers and admirers...
Five years have flown by as the novel ends. The married couple is still engaged in this tedious work. This includes the fellow who's too stout, and too unromantic, for the modern progressives of Vox.

As far as we know, no adapter has taken much interest in this, the actual ending to Alcott's book. Tinseltown has tended to substitute a closing adventure in which Jo publishes a book, an exciting event which doesn't occur at the end of Alcott's novel.

In these adaptations, we see Jo gain the applause of the world. Modern thought leaders still want this!

Unless you've been alive for the past many years, you might be inclined to think that we modern progressives could take interest in Alcott's fictional school for those fictional destitute kids. Like other adapters before her, Gerwig largely blew past those events, substituting a thrilling adventure which doesn't occur in the book.

That said, how intriguing! Last Sunday night, in Hollywood, a female director won an Oscar for a film about a school for impoverished kids! (For the full list of winners, click here.)

The director in question is Carol Dysinger. She won the Oscar for Best Documentary (Short Subject) for a 39-minute film with a beautifully poetic title:
Learning to Skateboard In a Warzone (if you're a girl)
Dysinger's 39-minute film is built around the students and teachers of Skateistan, a school for low-income kids found at an undisclosed location in Kabul. We strongly advise you to find a way to watch it, perhaps through this site at A&E.

You'll come, perhaps, for the novelty. You'll stay for the youthful desire, for the reflexive smiling and laughter.

Skateistan serves girls and boys. Dysinger's film is about the girls. Its opening chyron says this:
17 years after the Taliban fell, Afghanistan is still one of the wort places in the world to be born a girl.
Also, Afghanistan is still a war zone. The film takes over from there.

We won't try to list the many things you can see in this film. In our view, the film contains multitudes. We think you should try to watch it.

We were struck, on Oscar night, by the contrast between the demeanors of the little-known documentary winners and those of the Tinseltown stars. For Dysinger's occasionally acerbic acceptance speech, you can just click here.

Later, we were struck by an irony:

The female director we've been instructed to love could find no interest in Alcott's school for destitute boys. The female director who will go unmentioned built her film around a school—a school in a war zone—for low-income, out-of-school girls who hope for a chance in the world.

In Dysinger's film, beautiful children are learning to skateboard in a war zone. The one film touched off a tribal stampede. The other will stay unnoticed.

Alcott in a war zone: This morning, we reread one chapter in Susan Cheever's 2010 book, Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography.

The chapter in question is Chapter 6. It describes the time Alcott spent in a war zone during our Civil War.

In 1863, Alcott went to Washington to serve as a nurse in a Union hospital. Cheever's account is built upon the letters Alcott sent home—letters which were later published under the title Hospital Sketches.

Cheever's account is riveting. Eventually, we get to this:
CHEEVER (page 156): One man who stood out in the ward of dying men was a Virginia blacksmith named John Suhre. He had never married but devoted his life to helping his mother and family. Now he lay dying with a musket ball lodged in his lungs, but since his wound was in his back, he could hardly believe the pain he felt or understand his peril. Tall and extremely handsome, he was dying without complaint or remorse, and Alcott spent as much time with him as she could...
Suhre wanted to know if he was dying. The surgeon charged Alcott with the task of telling him he was.

"This exchange brought the two of them even closer," Cheever writes, "and both waited for a letter that might reassure him that his mother and younger sister might be taken care of."

This was part of Alcott's time in a war zone. Cheever continues with an account of the night Suhre died.

"Alcott sat grieving by his bed" in these last few hours, Cheever writes. "After John Suhre's body finally failed," Alcott needed help to pry his fingers away from her own.

That was life in one of our war zones. Five years later, Alcott wrote Little Women.

Today, people are helping children learn to skateboard in a different war zone. You've never heard of the director who created a "love letter to the brave girls" of the country where these efforts are taking place. On the other hand, we've all been barraged with routinely illogical complaints about the heinous way the famous, upscale director allegedly got snubbed.

We'll be watching Dysinger's film again. More than anything else, we were struck by a mystery it contains—the mystery of youthful energy and desire, the mystery of where laughter and smiling come from.

Within our own tribe, Professor Bhaer was too fat for Jo to marry and destitute children are boring. These have been our values for a very long time.

Hollywood groans beneath these values. Does everyone know this but us?

    Brain-dead limousine liberals are extremely sensitive and vulnerable, dear Bob.

    This is no laughing matter, dear Bob. They must have praises and prizes, hugs and kisses, or they wither like a beautiful flower.

    We can't let it happen, dear Bob. We need 'em brain-dead limousine liberals for the future race of Eloi, so that our descendants Morlocks could eat them.

  2. “The female director who will go unmentioned built her film around a school—a school in a war zone—for low-income, out-of-school girls who hope for a chance in the world.”

    Unmentioned? She won the freaking Oscar. You know, that award that those vile modern progressives in Tinseltown award to themselves?

    From her website:

    “Carol Dysinger directed the short documentary LEARNING TO SKATEBOARD IN A WARZONE (IF YOU’RE A GIRL) which won Best Documentary Short at Tribeca Film Festival 2019.

    Dysinger is also known for her feature length documentary CAMP VICTORY, AFGHANISTAN, compiled from 300+ hours of footage gathered over the course of three years. It premiered in competition at SXSW 2010, and played at the Museum of Modern Art Doc Fortnight and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Funded by Sundance Doc Fund and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the film later appeared on Public Television.

    Prior to directing docs, Professor Dysinger edited many documentaries and features, including DEADLINE for Big Mouth Productions (Sundance, and NBC), RAIN for Lola Films, M.Scorsese Executive Producer (Sundance, Venice International) SANTITOS for Springall Pix, John Sayles Exec (Sundance, Guadalajara, San Sebastian) and PUNK (Warners) which was a finalist for a national Emmy.

    As a screenwriter in Los Angeles, she co-wrote several scripts for Paramount, Twentieth Century Fox and Sam Goldwyn Productions, and A CHRISTMAS STAR with Fred Gwyn and Ed Asner for Disney. She wrote several independent features BURNTOWN for HBO Independent, and FAT GIRLS FROM HELL for Sheila Mclaughlin. Her short films screened widely and won several awards including the Student Academy Award for Best Dramatic and the Hugo Award. She is the recipient of the David Payne Carter award for excellence in teaching.”

    Hardly “unmentioned” or unknown, except maybe to Somerby.

    And all of the awards and screenings of her documentaries have been under the auspices of liberal groups.

    So, let’s get this straight. Somerby praises Dysinger’s film, and attacks the vileness of modern progressive values. He pretends she has been ignored, and meanwhile, her films have been screened, praised, and awarded by those same vile modern progressives.

    Somerby has simply stopped making sense.

    1. I’m sure Dysinger is aware of it. Why would you think she isn’t? Did you read her cv? She’s also a consultant at the Sundance Institute, founded by “limousine liberal” Robert Redford, just fyi.

    2. There’s a link on Somerby’s blog to Dysinger’s acceptance speech.

      My impression is that she’s not feeling it.

      Delete
    3. FYI Robert Redford grew up poor, as did Leonardo diCaprio. Redford became a high school sports star. Somerby's implication that Hollywood celebs know nothing about struggle is ludicrous given the 90% unemployment rate for actors. Notice that Dysinger paid her dues with a lot of projects before she gained the attention of the academy, as did Gerwig.

    4. “Notice that Dysinger paid her dues with a lot of projects before she gained the attention of the academy, as did Gerwig.”

      Yes, 40 years of that, she said.

    5. @cecelia
      She is a liberal herself. (Did you think she was a conservative?) She’s worked in and out of Hollywood, and alongside and within liberal organizations her whole life.

      What do you think she meant when she said this:
      ““They teach girls courage, to raise your hand, to say I am here, I have something to say,” she said. “And I’m gonna take that ramp. Don’t try to stop me.”

      Is she possibly referring to, I dunno, sexism in Hollywood, you know, the thing that Somerby keeps trying to disprove or scoff at?

      So he scoffs at liberals who talk about sexism (Dysinger, perhaps), praises Dysinger’s film, but rejects other aspects of her world view as “modern progressive values.” By his constant critiques, he has implicitly attacked Dysinger and other liberals who feel as she does. It’s nuts, frankly.

      Delete
    6. I think your comment would be more aptly addressed to Anonymouse 3:01pm, who killed a lot of pixels in an ode to the wondrous esteem and appreciation that liberals had conveyed on Dysinger. That was meant to serve as a contrast to Somerby’s comments about the culture’s current values and priorities.

      That link, offered and ignored, showing the lady saying that but for the memory of Frank Capra handing her an award 40 years ago, she would have never have had the strength to continue in the industry, are words no one put into her mouth via an overwrought blog post.

      That Anonymices argue that it’s all slights and sexism within the industry for days, and in face of TDH criticism of said people, then make passionate defenses of a deeply appreciative and encouraging artistic liberal cohort doesn’t make Somerby the person who is being extreme or self-contradictory.

    7. At some point you have to ask why talented directors are working in the field of documentary instead of making feature films. Women tend to find paths of lesser resistance because of the obstacles. Then men assume they are working in such fields because they like it better there (where pay is lower and visibility missing).

      There was a study of math-talented women who were part of the Johns Hopkins program for math talented youth. It found that women who liked science wound up in medicine or biology. Women who liked pursued medicine wound up in pediatrics or obstetrics, not surgery and were more likely to be internists or primary care physicians than specialists (where the better pay is). Women aren't idiots. They go where they can find work. That they are concentrated in certain fields means that they are being shut out of other fields. Lots of women in acting, not many in directing. And the ones in directing win Oscars for documentaries, not features.

      No one is arguing that there aren't plenty of sexist liberals out there, both male and female. But Somerby seems to think that liberals who decry sexism and want to see change, are doing something wrong.

      Delete
    8. No, Somerby doubts that Gerwig had been slighted for not winning Best Director and whether this line of complaint is valid in her case.

      Saying these things is not the equivalent to saying that sexism does not exist. Saying that the isms can be used in a way that has nowadays rendered them an ace in the hole to be played, is not equivalent to saying the isms don’t exist.

      It’s inexplicable how any of these accusations against TDH could be derived from an expected course of defending his own stance via a critique of the movie sequences and of the ways the script contrasted with the book. This latter focus addressed whether the director’s changes had merit in that they abided by the values Gerwig purportedly hopes to advance.

      I don’t know why you Anonymices reason like children whenever a blogger doesn’t say something in the way you want it said. My guess is that it’s derived out a very adult bit of bad faith.

    9. Somerby is entitled to his opinion, but a lot of other people support Gerwig, people who are professionals in the film industry and thus have a better foundation for their beliefs.

      If Somerby weren't continually attacking liberals while pretending to be liberal, I doubt anyone here would have much to say about Gerwig, Little Women, or Aristotle.

    10. There’s the difference between you and me.

      Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg attack conservatism and conservatives under Trump all day long and I wouldn’t spend ten seconds reading one of their blogs or arguing with them. . They’re not compelling or interesting now, nor where they ten years ago.

      Somerby is and you’re only here to say “rah, team!”.

      Delete
    11. Neither of them is pretending to be anything other than conservatives. Somerby pretends to be liberal but he uses the arguments of the right to attack liberals in service of Trump. He is dishonest.

      There are a great many other differences between you and me.

    12. anon 9:57, perhaps we can organize something analogous to HUAC (the former House Unamerican Activities Committee) for people like TDH who falsely claim to be 'liberals' - it could be called the CEEFL - the Committee to Expose and Excommunicate False Liberals. Maybe you could think of a better name. I'd put you in charge of it, if it were up to me.

  4. Alcott could go to a war zone and work in a hospital because she was not married and had no husband and children to care for. Husband and children consume so much of women's energy that they have no resources left over to become famous (absent a husband who is willing to share the work or sufficient funds to buy free time). This is one reason why more women are not famous in the same way as similarly intelligent, talented men can be. Alcott gave herself a choice that most women do not have.

    3. You come across like such a spoiled child with your inane weak rationalizations. You want women to rise to the top but when one does like Rachel Maddow all of a sudden she can't be criticized because she's a woman. Which is it girl? Now women can't do anything if they have a husband and children which is simply false. And what do you want men to do about that? You complain like a twelve-year-old. You spend at least, at the very least, 15 hours a week on this stupid blog monomaniacally blathering ad nauseam about your gender's poor weak position but no one reads this blog so you're totally, totally pissing in the wind. You're totally wasting your time. If you find yourself and women in a position you don't like why don't you go out and do something about it instead of wasting your time crying and moaning like a spoiled child to an audience of 10 people that don't give a shit all while the world outside goes on without meaningful input from you at all. You're lazy. You're hiding. You're boring.

    7. I guess you don't know much about Lee Miller. She's famous for her photography in a warzone dummy. But true she is famous for otherwise things as well. She was combat photographer in Europe during the war, she documented the liberation of Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps.

      "Miller has been recognized as among the most original and ambitious photographic artists of the 20th century, and a subtly transgressive artist, who - as Lynn Hilditch asserts in Lee Miller, Photography, Surrealism and the Second World War - took off from her Surrealist background and "pushed the boundaries both of art and war photography, often using unconventional methods to comment on such multifaceted issues as sex, gender, death, and war".

      You're a boring, dumb ditz. Go out and do something loser.

    8. She is so famous I never heard of her. Does her "legacy" mean that there is now no such thing as discrimination against today's women? Can you imagine her photographing Dachau with a bunch of young children to care for? That was your original point -- that she could be wonderful AND have a family too. Which her bio suggests isn't the truth. She did interesting things and then she married and had a child (one, not as many as nature provides).

      Call me some more names. That really gets your point across.

    9. I can't help it if you are culturally illiterate. You had said Alcott could go to a war zone because she didn't have a husband and children consuming so much of her energy and that other women would have no resources left over to become famous if they had husbands but Lee Miller was married, worked in a war zone and she was extremely famous . That was my only point. Now look dumb whore, don't go putting words in my mouth. I'm not responsible for your chronic depression and inability to deal with the world so go fuck off.

    10. You aren't paying attention to what she did when. She was no where near that war zone when she was married and had a child. That happened later. She was the girlfriend/lover of Man Ray who took credit for the photographs she took while she ran his photo studio while he painted. She was a member of an artistic circle and she was not married and did not have children at that time. Later, when she was nearly 40, she returned to the US, married and had a child.

      I don't believe she is a good example of your thesis that a woman can become famous while also being married and having children. Even if she were such an example, that doesn't mean it is possible for most women. Having someone like Man Ray as your mentor only illustrates sleeping to the top, not success on one's own initiative. Women shouldn't have to do that to become photographers or any other profession.

    11. Don't lecture me about someone you know nothing about skank twat. She was married when she was war correspondent and working with the man she would eventually marry. Of course women can become famous while married with children. It happens all the time. You're such a lame loser. No one likes you. You'll never amount to anything and you're probably ugly and flat chested.

  5. “no adapter has taken much interest in this, the actual ending to Alcott's book.”

    The part about the boys school occurs in the very last chapter of the second part of Little Women, a book of over 700 pages. It is hardly a focus of the novel. Why should it be a focus of any film adaptation?

    1. Because it's a nice ending.

      Instead, let's have Jo stalk off in a triumph of righteous independence, eh?

      It's a question of values.

    2. It’s certainly the burning question of our age, what Greta Gerwig decides to do with Little Women.

  9. Somerby “proves” that liberals don’t care about poor people because Greta Gerwig changed the ending to Little Women, and some liberals liked it.

    Meanwhile, Somerby “proves” how much he cares about poor people by using the phrase “poor people” in a sentence, such as “Liberals don’t care about poor people.”

    It’s all so simple. And so phony. Perhaps if Somerby repeats this routine just one more time, someone somewhere might believe it.

  19. I have to say wholeheartedly I believe Oniha is a gifted individual and gentle in his second nature. I have received the most rewarding and spiritual experience whilst conversing with him on the telephone. I heard and saw an angel in my mind-eye it was so overwhelming. I knew at the moment finally my difficulties were over. He deserves recognition for his power and talents as a beautiful individual who brings spirit close to those in need. I have been touched deeply,nothing has come as close to me before. I am in total awe and have a great deal of respect. Thank you Dr Oniha for reuniting me with my estranged husband. Anyone who needs relationship help should contact this man and he will help you.

  20. I just want to share my experience with the entire world on how i got my husband back and saved my marriage… I was married for 5 years with 2 kids and i have been living happily with my family until things started getting ugly with me and my husband that leads us to fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that my husband filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn't want to loose my husband but everything just didn't work out… He moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster called Dr Oniha, Who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try it because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did the spell for me and things really work out as he promise and my husband have a change of mind and come back home to stay with me and the kids. And promise never to hurt me again. we are living happily as it was with the help of Dr Oniha. If you are in need of help you can contact Dr Oniha.

  21. My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found Dr.Todd website online and I ordered for a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 48hrs. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.

  22. My Bitcoin Investment  Experience. No doubt Bitcoin has been the trend of today and it's doing a lot in the world of business because people prefer saving  up money in their wallets rather than banks,   I lost about  $54,000 USD last summer due to the fall in the price of bitcoins. A colleague at work who knew my ordeal on bitcoin savings  introduced me to a platform  (cryptoforex345.com)  where I can save and invest my bitcoins with more than 100%  profit  margin.  At first I was skeptical about it so I decided to try it out with just  few dollars. I was amazed after 12 hours I earned an additional more dollars  and I was able to make an instant withdrawal and ever since I have been investing and making more money.  Bitcoin investment with cryptoforex345.com  has changed my life as I have made over $176,000 USD. You all can sign up and earn at:
