That part led to a role as an artist in “Born to Be Bad” (1950), which starred Joan Fontaine as a predatory beauty. But with “The Brave Bulls” (1951), Mr. Ferrer became a star.

---下文是改自台灣Appletimes。「布希近日積極推薦一本新書《民主實例》(Case of Democracy),由前蘇聯猶太裔異議人士、目前在以色列從政的沙蘭斯基所著。該書談論反納粹主義和反共產主義,與布希指出「世界分裂成對抗邪惡和願意姑息邪惡兩股勢力」相若。」HC評:這CASE 或許不是案件,而是為民主提出的反方之事實和護民主制之論點。
