Ten random things: July 11

Ten movies Ronald Reagan watched while President:

  1. Arthur (July 25, 1981)
  2. Cattle Queen of Montana (January 14, 1989)
  3. Eight Men Out (September 23, 1988)
  4. Gunga Din (January 6, 1984)
  5. Inchon (February 13, 1982)
  6. Kings Row (October 17, 1986)
  7. For Whom the Bell Tolls (January 16, 1987)
  8. Night Into Morning (August 24, 1984)
  9. Rambo: First Blood Part II (June 29, 1985)
  10. Robin Hood (November 20, 1983)

Ronald Reagan is no Samuel Pepys, but The Reagan Diaries, edited by Douglas Brinkley, is kind of interesting. For example, I learned that Reagan didn't care for Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. Surely, Brinkley deserves a Pulitzer for bringing us this important fact.
