There are probably several thousand web sites with this information available to read about characters like Darryl Zanuck, be that as it may though, I’m not doing this particularly for the benefit of others, rather for myself; because this is pretty much new material for me that I have never bothered to look at until now. Basically because I despise Hollywood and never spent, or should I say, wasted too much time in front of the television or going to movies only to blow perfectly good money worked hard to obtain. Why not pay me, then I would go watch movies? I’ve watched movies challenging movie producers who probably have a mainline to the CIA working to influence me for whatever nefarious reasons, daring them to crawl into my brain with whatever it is they were attempting to inflict on me. I always thought of movies and television as “soft power”, a psychological assault on my interpretations of my own circumstances in life. Entertainment delivered as a weapons package in the form of a movie when the subconscious mind is “off duty.” Can’t fool me…
Darryl Francis Zanuck was an American film producer and studio executive; he earlier contributed stories for films starting in the silent era. Too bad Hollywood never stayed in the “silent era?” Half the shit spewing out of the mouths of actresses and actors in Hollywood today is barely above third grade intellect. Zanuck played a major part in the Hollywood studio industry as one of its longest survivors (the length of his career was rivaled only by that of Adolph Zukor). I have never head of Adolph Zukor until I read that bit of background on Zanuck. The thought of “being one of Hollywood’s longest survivors” has me thinking Zanuck must have been one mean nasty cutthroat son-of-a-bitch to make it through Hollywood. Must have been why Zanuck had that “special office built adjoining his official business office at 20th Century-Fox”? To bed all those female hopeful tinsel stars coming through 20th Century-Fox’s front doors? The “sofa approach” to interviewing for movie parts. Vectoring all that pent up male aggression through sex. Zanuck earned three Academy Awards, like who really cares, during his movie production career. Anyone see Cleopatra? One a dumb movie. Zanuck was the head of production for 20th Century-Fox and he was there through all phases directing all aspects of movie production. The following video clip is of Darryl Zanuck. He is the the second from the left with the cigar which seemed to have been his trademark in Hollywood. So much so that he apparently died from developing cancer in his jaw. Have no clue who Moscowitz was but he sounds Jewish which Joseph Schenck, who was Zanuck’s partner at 20th Century-Fox, certainly was.

Robbie Graham in her book The CIA, The Movie Mogul and The Day The Earth Stood Still, suggests “Darryl Zanuck was a CIA asset” and facilitated through 20th Century-Fox, introducing the UFO/alien meme into the population through Hollywood, with Zanuck’s work on the movie The Day The earth Stood Still (the world in which this alien comes from is ruled by machines). I want to emphasize “introducing the meme of UFOs and aliens into Hollywood”, and not in radio which was done many years earlier. The UFO/alien meme goes back further, at least to H. G. Wells (The War of the Worlds was 1897); the Orson Welles broadcast was 1938. That project was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation through Princeton on studies into social engineering. “The day the Earth stood still” concept? Probably from the Bible or ancient mythologies – nothing new there. British Intelligence pushed such memes heavily. Darryl Zanuck worked with Edmund H. North and it was North who first submitted to Darryl Zanuck, who was the studio chief at the time for 20th Century-Fox, a screenplay in the summer of 1950 based on a novelette called “Farewell to the Master” by Harry Bates.
Zanuck apparently didn’t like the name of the title “Farewell to the Master“, so he changed to “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” I’ve been wondering after reading this as to why Zanuck would have changed the name of the movie to that particular title? Where would he have derived that idea from? The Pentagon? His contacts in the CIA? This was 1950. The “national security state”, which John Kennedy was big on, began in 1947, three years earlier with the creation of the National Security Council. Zanuck gave contracts to British actors and one British actor he gave a contract to for acting parts at 20th Century-Fox was the actor who starred in the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still, the British actor Michael Rennie. I’ve been thinking about why was Zanuck providing British actors with parts at 20th Century-Fox? British intelligence penetrating Hollywood? Rennie’s career in Hollywood spanned 30 years, yet his part as the space visitor named Klaatu in the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still is what Rennie is most remembered for. Considering Zanuck’s background, this would make perfect sense to me to bring British actors into Hollywood. Rennie joined the Royal Air Force in 1941, training as a fighter pilot in the United States under the Arnold Plan. Zanuck made a movie called “A Yank In The RAF“, so now I am wondering, he has the British actor Michael (acting name) Rennie doing the movie part as the character Klaatu, and Rennie was training as a UK pilot under the Arnold Plan in the US, which seems to be an opposite take on the name of the movie A Yank In The RAF? Arnold Plan? What’s that? Now I have to run off and see what that was all about…
This background was discovered from book Patricia Neal: An Unquiet Life that was stumbled upon while reading about this history. Zanuck decided on giving the part to the British actor Michael Rennie because Zanuck didn’t want a character already familiar to the American people. Harry Bates was an American science fiction editor and writer. Edmund H. North, Julian Baustein and Darryl Zanuck were in the US Army Signal Corp together and were in Europe filming and making training movies for the US Army. Zanuck was the commander of their unit and it turns out that Zanuck sent a personal letter to Henry Stimson to go to Europe to make films. This information was found in the book Hollywood’s Coldwar.
During WWII, Zanuck was a board member of the National Committee For a Free Europe (NCFE) which was a CIA front organization established by Allen Dulles. The other board member of NCFE was Cecile B. deMille. Both Cecile B. DeMille and Darryl Zanuck are suspected of being involved in Operation Mockingbird first being approached by Frank Wisner. Frank Wisner was head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), precursor to the CIA, under operations in southeastern Europe at the end of World War II, and the head of the Directorate of Plans of the Central Intelligence Agency during the 1950s. Operation Mockingbird was organized by Allen Dulles and Cord Meyer. There should be very little doubt how Hollywood and all media sources have been compromised by the intelligence agencies carefully drip feeding Americans all these years what they will and will not be informed about. What do you believe? If you don’t except this go read Miles Mathis’ essay on the big Dzhokhar Tsarnaev trial for everyone’s amusement. The media which is psychological warfare is running this operation – again. How’s this for bringing people up to date on psychological warfare?
Wikipedia has scrubbed the fact that Darryl Zanuck was in Europe as an army colonel in the Army’s Signal Corp during WWII. The Signal Corp is involved in communications and making movies. John McCloy who was High Commissioner to Europe, disagreed with Zanuck’s idea of controlling or influencing culture in Germany through movies Zanuck produced in Europe after WWII. Not really sure why McCloy would come to this decision when American corporate inroads started being made into Europe after WWII.
At the home of Peter Lawfrod, who was married to Patricia Kennedy, John Kennedy was in attendance along with about fifty other influential people including Darryl F. Zanuck. This means that Darryl Francis Zanuch was personally introduced to John Kennedy through Frank Sinatra, or maybe Peter Lawford who John Kennedy used to make contacts with in Hollywood. Joseph Kennedy Sr owned three movie studios and for thirty years “exploited Hollywood.” Don’t forget, it has already ben mentioned that Joseph kennedy Sr was in meetings with Darryl Zanuch at Zanuch’s offices at 20th Century-Fox. Very few people realize just how wealthy the Kennedy oligarchs were, Miles Mathis in his recent essay on the “faked assassination of John Kennedy”, suggested “the Kennedy’s had more wealth than Rockefeller interests.” John McCloy as High Commissioner of Germany knew of Darryl Francis Zanuck as indicated in the above paragraph.
Zanuck was also a Freemason. Worth noting all the Freemasonic symbolism associated in the alleged assassination of John Kennedy in Dallas that esotericists go nuts over. It is worth noting that Darryl Zanuck produced a movie called “The House of Rothschild” in 1934 which was a movie sympathetic towards Jews. Maybe this is how he was able to get into Hollywood considering Hollywood today is owned by Jews? Darryl Zanuck’s son, Richard D. Zanuck, was fired by his father Darryl, Richard Zanuck subsequently went to Werner Brothers as its Executive Vice President. Werner Brothers is where Darryl Zanuck was before he went to 20th Century-Fox. There was speculation in Hollywood that Zanuck’s reputation was an “egotistical tyrant and voracious womanizer” which tarnished his contribution to film. Tarnished? Did it? How would that be judged anyway considering Zanuck was one of the longest survivors in Hollywood? After viewing several images of Darryl Zanuck having dinner and cocktails apparently with Marilyn Monroe, can just imagine what the conversation must have been about as Marilyn Monroe in the images is smiling at Zanuck sitting next to him. Wonder how Marilyn tolerated all the cigar smoke? Darryl Zanuck made his son, Richard Zanuck, head of production at 20th Century-Fox, but a power struggle erupted with his son and the board of 20th Century-Fox. In May, 1971 Richard Zanuck was forced out of “his” studio at 20th Century-Fox mentioned above.
There are not many videos available on YouTube of Zanuck but this clip is of Zanuck giving a tour of 20th Century-Fox. 20th Century-Fox was started up by Darryl Zanuck and Joseph Schenck after Zanuck left Warner Brothers.

What was the reason for this power struggle and why the confrontation between Darryl Zanuck and his son Richard Zanuck? After the alleged assassination of John Kennedy, Darryl Zanuck sent a telegram to Jacqueline Kennedy conveying his sympathy. Darryl Zanuck sent the telegram to Jacqueline Kennedy from Europe where he was between 1956 and early 1962 alleged making movies including the movie Cleopatra, which by the way was released the same year as John Kennedy was alleged to have been assassinated. During the filming and production of Cleopatra where did Zanuck go? Was he in Europe all this time? Did he make trips back to the US and to where just before John Kennedy’s staged assassination? This is how the telegram looked that has been reproduced here in text format rather than an image.
DEAR MRS KENNEDY
I WAS IN ROME WHEN THE TRAGIC ACCIDENT OCCURRED, IN ADDITION TO MY GRIEF AND SHOCK I WAS NEVER MORE ASHAMED OF BEING AN AMERICAN. DURING THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS, AND THROUGHOUT THE FUNERAL CEREMONY, I WAS NEVER MORE PROUD OF BEING AN AMERICAN. UNDER THESE TEDIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES YOU CONDUCTED YOURSELF IN A MANNER THAT GAVE NEW DIGNITY TO OUR NATION. I KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE INTERESTED TO LEARN THAT IN ROME ON THE DAY FOLLOWING THE ASSASSINATION ALL OF THE ADVERTISING BILLBOARDS WERE REMOVED THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND WERE REPLACED WITH LARGE BILLBOARD POSTERS WITH A FULL-SIZED PHOTOGRAPH OF OUR LATE PRESIDENT. ALL TELEVISION AND RADIO PROGRAMS WERE CANCELLED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NEWS BULLETINS. THIS IS A SMALL TOKEN BUT IT IS INDICATIVE OF THE RESPECT A FOREIGN COUNTRY HELD FOR YOUR HUSBAND.
