It was needed for more accurate weather reports for Thule Air Base, and also as a base for the Sirius Patrol. The station would serve as an airstrip for aircraft from the US Air Force that operated in the polar region, and for civilian aircraft en route across the North Pole. The construction of Station Nord was undertaken by Danish construction companies and financed by the Danish government, with the Americans contributing to the transportation of equipment from the Thule Air Base and paying subsidies to maintain the operation of the station.

to move there. The campaign partly incorporated the standard Soviet propaganda tools of the era and included posters and Yiddish-language novels describing a socialist utopia there. Other methods bordered on the bizarre. In one instance, leaflets promoting Birobidzhan were dropped from an airplane over a Jewish neighborhood in Belarus. In another instance, a government-produced Yiddish film called ''Seekers of Happiness'' told the story of a Jewish family that fled the Great Depression in the United States to make a new life for itself in Birobidzhan. As the Jewish population grew, so did the impact of Yiddish culture on the region. Settlers established a Yiddish newspaper, the ''Birobidzhaner Shtern''; a theater troupe was created; and streets being built in the new city were named after prominent Yiddish authors such as Sholom Aleichem and Y. L. Peretz. The Yiddish language was deliberately bolstered as a basis for efforts to secularize the Jewish population and, despite the general curtailment of this action as described immediately below, the ''Birobidzhaner Shtern'' continues to publish a section in Yiddish. wikipedia:Jewish Autonomous Oblast commons:category:Jewish Autonomous Oblast

During the 1930s they maintained homes in Hollywood, Cannes (Cannes, France), and Connecticut. In the Pacific Coast states, the wide areas filled with small towns, farms, and forests are supplemented by a few big port cities which have evolved into world centers for the media and technology industries. Now the second largest city in the nation, Los Angeles is best known as the home of the Hollywood film industry; the area around Los Angeles also was a major center for the aerospace industry by World War II, though Boeing, located in Washington state would lead the aerospace industry. Fueled by the growth of Los Angeles—as well as the San Francisco Bay area, including Silicon Valley—the center of America's high tech industry-California has become the most populous of all the states. Oregon and Washington have also seen rapid growth with the rise of Boeing and Microsoft along with agriculture and resource based industries. The desert and mountain states have relatively low population densities, and developed as ranching and mining areas which are only recently becoming urbanized. Most of them have highly individualistic cultures, and have worked to balance the interests of urban development, recreation, and the environment. thumb left 300px Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument (File:Newspaperrock.jpg), Utah contains petroglyphs left by the first inhabitants of the American Southwest.

Stewart had been nervous and unsure of himself during the early stages of production. At that time he had only had two minor MGM parts which had not given him much camera experience. The director, Edward H. Griffith, began bullying Stewart. "Maggie, he's wet behind the ears", Griffith told Sullavan. "He's going to make a mess of things". Quirk, p. 60. She believed in Stewart and spent evenings coaching him and helping him scale down his awkward mannerisms and hesitant speech that were soon to be famous around the world. "It was Margaret Sullavan who made James Stewart a star", director Griffith later said. "And she did, too", Bill Grady from MGM agreed. "That boy came back from Universal so changed I hardly recognized him". Quirk, pp. 60-61. Gossip in Hollywood at that time (1935–36) was that William Wyler, Sullavan's then-husband, was suspicious about his wife's and Stewart's private rehearsing together. Quirk, p. 62-63. Russ Meyer was born in San Leandro, California to William Arthur Meyer, a German-American police officer, and his wife Lydia Lucinda Hauck. McDonough 2004, p. 24. His parents divorced shortly after he was born, and Meyer was to have virtually no contact with his father during his life. When he was fourteen years old, his mother pawned (pawn shop) her wedding ring in order to buy him an 8mm film camera. He made a number of amateur films at the age of 15, and served during World War II as a U.S. Army (United States Army) combat cameraman for the 166th Signal Photo Company. In the Army Meyer forged his strongest friendships, and he would later ask many of his fellow combat cameramen to work on his films. Much of Meyer's work during World War II can be seen in newsreels and in the film ''Patton (Patton (film))'' (1971). McDonough 2004, p. 44. On his return to civilian life, he was unable to secure cinematography work in Hollywood due to a dearth of industry connections. He made industrial films (sponsored film), freelanced as a still photographer for mainstream films (he did the still photography for ''Giant (Giant (1956 film))''), and became a well known glamour photographer whose work included some of the initial shoots for Hugh Hefner's ''Playboy'' magazine. Meyer would go on to shoot three ''Playboy'' centerfolds during the magazine's early years, one of his wife Eve Meyer in 1955. He also shot a pictorial of then-wife Edy Williams in March 1973. McDonough 2004, chapters 1-3. The Russ Meyer female physical archetype is fairly complex to decipher. Firstly, it's not to be confused with today's surgically enhanced Hollywood porn starlets or even slim, naturally endowed actresses. Russ Meyer was almost as much about a shapely 1950s hip-to-waist ratio or "wasp waist" as he was about very large breasts. The six-pack abdominal muscles and built-up squarish appearance of modern Hollywood figures do not mesh with his pin-up aesthetic. Secondly, he required that even his most busty actresses looked good braless; "gravity-defying" and "cantilevered" became two of his favorite expressions. He went on record numerous times to say that Anita Ekberg was the most beautiful woman he ever photographed and that her 39DD breasts were the biggest in A-list Hollywood history, dwarfing both Jayne Mansfield and Sabrina (Sabrina (actress)). Sullivan, Steve (1995), ''VaVaVa Voom!: Glamour Girls of The Pinup Era''. McDonough 2004, Chapter 4, p. 83. Dolly Parton was the only modern Hollywood actress Meyer ever expressed interest in working with. Frasier 1998. As an adult, Pebbles pursued a career in advertising and married Bamm-Bamm. After this, the newly-married couple moved to Hollyrock (a fictional prehistoric version of Hollywood, California). They eventually have baby twins, son Chip and daughter Roxy. Career Born '''Alfred Ernest Christie''', in London, Ontario, Canada, he was one of a number of Canadian pioneers in early Hollywood who made their way to Hollywood, California, attracted by the newly developing motion picture business. Al Christie began his career in 1909 working for David Horsley's Nestor film company in Bayonne, New Jersey. In 1910, at Horsley's Centaur Film Company, Christie began turning out one single reel of a ''Mutt and Jeff (Mutt and Jeff (comic strip))'' comedy picture every week. The following year, Al went to the West Coast to head up Nestor Studios for Horsley. This operation was the first ever movie studio to be built in Hollywood It opened October 27, 1911. Al Christie then formed a partnership with his brother Charles (Charles Christie) to form Christie Film Company which lasted until 1933 when the company went into receivership. Around 1910, the East Coast (East Coast of the United States) filmmakers began to take advantage of California winters and after Nestor Studios, run by Canadian Al Christie, built the first permanent movie studio in Hollywood a number of the movie companies expanded or relocated to the new Hollywood. Foster, p. 28. At the same time, because there was no sound in movies, several French (France) filmmakers had their motion pictures distributed in America. Kevin Brownlow.

These French studios, led by Pathé as well as Gaumont Pictures (Gaumont Film Company) and Georges Méliès, were the dominant force worldwide until 1914 when movie production in France virtually ended with the onset of World War I.
