Re: Hollywood and national stereotypes

Speaking of Hollywood, Christopher Jones said;
"We have seen everyone imaginable: the evil German soldier of the SS; the Russian rapist, the Arab maniac, the Mexican killer; the insidious Jap, the wild Chinese commie and even the money-greedy Gringo shooting buffalo".

From the UK, George Sassoon writes: "What about the effete, foolish Englishmen who only won the Battle of Britain with the help of heroic American allies (all 12 of them)? Every time I go to the U.S. everyone seems to think, on hearing my accent, that I am a) homosexual and b) ineffably stupid".

Don't worry, George. What Peter says about Paul tells you more about Peter than about Paul.
