When the subject of novels by C.S. Forester pops up at cocktail parties, film adaptations of them that immediately come to mind are "The African Queen" (script by James Agee and John Huston) and "Sink the Bismark!" (script by Edmund H. North). I wasn't familiar with Forester's 1955 book "The…

Jon Stewart, bless his liberal heart, certainly means well with his initiative to reform the body politic through the ironically titled "Irresistible." But the message is likely to fall upon deaf ears and sleepy eyes. I don't want to label as folly his tale of a former Hillary Clinton operat…
