A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in Movies
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933's Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies. 1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) Gregory Peck's Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee's award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, causing the already-divided town's racial tensions to boil over. Through it all, ...

Alexandra Holzer: New York Never Sleeps Because Noel Ashman Won't Let It! (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
New York City Nightlife 30-plus years ago danced to a different beat. The progressive change of club hopping from one place to the next hasn't switched course. A fellow New Yorker that is an entrepreneur, film producer and nightclub owner, Noel Ashman, who has been reported by The New York Post as, "One of the five most important people in New York" knows a thing or two about where the party's at. A product of the '70s, Noel grew up living in Manhattan with the Prep school attendance as a must, and he began his independence and interest in promotion and nightlife development early on. "We would get flyers printed up, maybe 100, and pass them out for the keg party. Once we hosted a party and what seemed like tens of thousands of these preppy kids just showed up along the streets. Then the cops came to shut it down," Noel tells me. He goes on to say that big names started to hear about the "noise" he was making and it spiraled upward from there. "It is important to keep t ...

Elkridge Masons One of Largest Lodges in Maryland
Elkridge Patch - almost 5 years
Although masons are often thought to be part of a brotherhood shrouded in secrecy, David Rabe of Elkridge says that's not so. "It's just the meaning of our symbols that we keep secret," said Rabe, who leads the lodge as its Worshipful Master. "The real secrets of masonry are the ways we recognize each other." The organization builds character through study and service work. Freemasons don't go out and recruit, with a membership based on attraction rather than promotion. "It's due to the nature of the organization," said Rabe. "We're not supposed to ask people." Still, Howard Lodge has one of the largest memberships in Maryland, counting 535 men among its membership. Its members range from 18 to 90 years old. In one case, there are three generations of masons sitting in the meeting room on the second floor of the house, which looks like a normal single-family home on Levering Avenue. The meeting room is filled with regal looking blue chairs and sacred objects like the ...
