Blind Item #1 - Reader Blind Item

This Oscar nominated actor has worked with almost everybody in a career spanning nearly six decades.  As the end of his life approaches, he has one regret he has voiced out to family and friends recently.  A number of decades ago, he played the villain in a film of a specific genre cast opposite that icon of this specific genre who was nearing the end of his career.  The film also starred a lot of young boys and young men.  The film had an auction in one scene and after shooting stopped for the day, an auction of a different sort occurred.  Wealthy powerful men, some from Hollywood, some from the business world, would bid to have sex with the young boy actors with studio representatives playing the role of auctioneer.  This went on for much of the shoot.  The actor did not participate as he is not a pedophile but he didn’t say anything against it either as his career was getting hot at the time and he did not want to jeopardize this.  He has a very guilty conscience about this and might speak out publicly before he dies.

What’s up with all the reader blinds? After the alleged Himmmmmm situation I would think Enty would stay away from unverifiable info!

Marlin said...

What’s the alleged himmm situation?

Rosie riveter said...

Enty IS unverifiable info.
That being said, it sure would be easy to send one of these in.
Hhmmm....

I wonder about these child actor auction stories. I mean trafficked child slave auctions make sense, but these seem odd. Are there any receipts that auctions happen with child actors?

Kirk Douglas

Bea said...

Based on clues, I'm going with Bruce Dern. He's 83 and played the villain in The Cowboys with John Wayne in 1972.

Lots of young boys on set, based on IMDB: Rancher Wil Andersen is forced to hire inexperienced boys as cowhands in order to get his herd to market on time but the rough drive is full of dangers and a gang of cattle rustlers is trailing them.

Thia said...

That is a great guess, Bea. +1

Also, Bruce Dern was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Coming Home (1978) and the Academy Award for Best Actor for Nebraska (2013)

Village Guru said...

@Bea has it. I was just getting to write John Wayne. He is for certain the iconic cowboy.

sinkabella said...

Kirk Douglas?

Brayson87 said...

I just can't see Kirk Douglas having a conscience or feeling guilty 😅

Binkz@ said...

Did anyone else notice the Himmm Twitter was taken down. Enty should be careful of these kinds of blinds after what happened. It was really sad about what happened to Himmm and all that nastiness.

MissDavie said...

Good guess on The Cowboys. I can see John Wayne at that point in his life being oblivious to it and Dern staying out of it as he was still early in his career.
I also wonder about these stories. It's 1972 and as soon as shooting stops the studio starts selling the boys to the homosexual child molesters? In 1972? On a John Wayne movie?
If this is true and is The Cowboys then Dern should definitely speak up about it and some of the boys must still be living and may want to speak about it as well.
These Reader Blinds may just be pure Shenanigans.

Isvara said...

What happened to Himmm? I know one passed away, but didn't see anything after that.

Thia said...

@Binkz - I didn't notice that, but just went and looked and yes, you were right. That whole Twitter drama (for lack of a better word) was really sad.

Notagoodscreenname said...

What brayson said lol.

Unknown said...

Yeaahh, this is nonsense. And I too am surprised that enty has been leaning so much on reader blinds after the Himmm fiasco.

On the very, VERY, small chance this is true, it certainly ain't Kirk Douglas lol.

Nubian princess said...

It was taken down by request. Nothing nefarious. The stories written on Medium are still available

This and That said...

Can someone please describe the Himmmm situation? People keep commenting on it but all I’ve seen is one of them died. What is the deal?

gauloise said...

Reader blinds where it is someone who was an extra on a set or went to a party and saw famous people are one thing, but these are a bit out there and probably fan fic. I prefer daily mail rewrites tbh

Gen-z99 said...

I'm with @Brayson87 on this one,i 'm just not buying this,sorry enty.

CourtD said...

Seriously. I've no clue either what happened with the Himmmm stuff. Was it found to be fake or what? I can't seem to find any type of answer to what is being referred to.

MeliticusBee said...

A lot of the old western actors were gay and apparently creeped on the young boys who were in the movies. Every western has one or more boys and a bunch of young "men" - and there are a ton of western as they were apparently cranking them out weekly.
My husband watched a bunch as a kid...so we watch them now - knowing what I know about the industry in general, the signs are all there.

Anyway....I think this is Bruce Dern who played opposite John Wayne in The Cowboys - with the auction being the sale of the cattle.

Flashy Vic said...

Kirk Douglas's career is far longer than 60 years.

hothotheat said...

Kirk Douglas prefers to rape females.

Vince said...

Agree that this is probably Bruce Derm, who appeared with John Wayne in THE COWBOYS. Another factoid about this film... Dern was the first actor to kill John Wayne on screen in a film.

pusssykatt said...

Here is a clip of all the young boys in "The Cowboy." Makes you sick.

Do Telle said...

A Martinez played one of the young cowboys. He could confirm if true.

LaurenMaye said...

Nope, don't believe this one AT ALL.

Post Cards From The Edge said...

Himmm committed suicide, people found out through his family that he was not a Hollywood insider but a mentally ill man who fantasizes about being one. John Doe found this out and then said this website is nothing but lies and he is apologizing to every celebrity under the fucking sun, his whole world being shook. He deleted his social media. That's the tea.

texasrose said...

The Cowboys seems like the movie. I've watched it several times but not sure about an 'auction' scene from it but might just be a made up detail to match the 'auction' alleged in the blind.

CourtD said...

Huh. Interesting. I must've missed those posts and Revelations...thanks for explaining.

Also, if you listen to the "tribute" podcast, Enty explains that he started posting stories provided by Himmmm as early as 2008, except they were not specifically attributed to him.

Some of the material is actually quite easy to identify. Remember the first "Bani" story about yachting? Tons of useless details about how "Enty" had been approached by the guy, just to create some mood, then a laundry list of major names? Classic "Himmmm". He used this structure a lot.

Anyway that means that a lot of the content from the site, from 2008 to 2018 (with probably a few months or years off) was provided, as many people had established as early as 2012, by some schmuck living in Virginia with zero connections to the industry, especially to the rotating list of A-listers who were supposed to be the other "Himmmms". He was, in many ways, someone who hadn't achieved his dreams and used Internet as a way to live the life and tell the stories that he assumed he would have witnessed with his "bros", had he made it in the industry.

He also used the "Himmmm" cachet to catfish a few women, with some of them still in denial. That's actually how the guy got exposed after his death. One of his victims tried to defend his memory and the deep connection she had with him.
She attacked a direct relative, and the relative tried to explain to her that he would post a lot of lies online, and that there were already many pages on the web that had established who he actually was.
So, the thing about "Himmmm" being very important for #metoo is a huge load of horse manure. The guy was sick and he hurt women, maybe not deliberately, but he was definitely not a feminist.

Regarding the site, by his own admission, Enty relied a lot on Himmmm for years. Apparently, he was aware that it was a guy in Virginia he was in touch with. But he never checked on his actual credentials, his involvement with RDJ (which was actually the thing that put the site on the map), PTA and the other guys supposed to be part of the collective. He even never tried to meet one of the "Himmmms".
So, was he that naive, or was he happy to get outrageous stories, even if he knew (or sort of knew) there were a fabrication during an entire decade? The very fact that he doesn't want to address this, or that any message expressing doubts on Himmmm on the various "official" Facebook groups (and probably this one too) gets deleted within hours doesn't exactly help his case.
But he also has some interest in doing so. As long as people assume the "Himmmms" have retired because they lost one of their member, they won't dispute the rest of what's posted here and they may still want to subscribe to the Patreon podcast, which is how Enty makes money.

JL said...

Snort. With his reputation with young women. i doubt he has any conscience at all.

Gerbil S Sac said...

So his site has les than zero credibility then, effectively. KPop, Netflix conspiracies and rehashed Daily Mail stories dressed up as "blinds". Typical. I think it's time CDAN was put to bed. It serves no purpose, offers no insight.

Travelgrrl said...

The Cowboys starred not only Dern and Wayne, but also Roscoe Lee Browne, Slim Pickens and Colleen Dewhurst - and I'll be damned if any of those people would go along with what was alleged. Dewhurst could and did go 12 rounds with George C Scott (who she was married to, twice), for heaven's sakes!

Also, A Martinez and Robert Carradine were among the young actors. Can't see either of them being exploited in this way without a hullabaloo.

There is also no auction scene in the film. The actual selling of the cattle happens offscreen, with the boys only seen using some of their hard earned dough to buy a headstone for Wayne's character.

I call bullshit on this one, or else it's a different movie referenced.

BardiC said...

Thanks for the info, Angela!

Enty seems to have a habit of using mentally ill people for clicks. Just look at the dancing boy debacle and the alleged emails from Amanda Bynes. All it took was a quick google search a few years back for me to find plenty of convincing evidence of who Himmmm was. I can’t believe Enty didn’t know. Imo Enty purposely enabled and exploited TG, as did all who didn’t question his blatantly obvious lies. TG didn’t need his delusions encouraged, he needed psychiatric help. He needed intervention. His manic episodes were so transparent, especially during his final rant on here and with regularity on twitter. I know another woman who was catfished on twitter by him, he was very charming at first but then became obsessive and controlling with her. He scared her to the point where she constantly felt like she was being watched or followed, that he was so powerful he could make her disappear. After 10 months caught in a very toxic relationship with him she finally cut him off, changed all her accounts and contact details. Then a few days later he committed suicide and now she’s blaming herself for that. She was certain Himmmm was kosher because of the credibility Enty gave to him via this website. I bet there are many others like her out there.

So was there actually only one Himmmm in the end?

Jeff Weimer said...

I was convinced most of what Himmmm put out was farcical after the big "The Crow" debacle. Simple research showed that this character was a pastiche of at least 3 people in that story alone. And his response was further proof of his mala fides.
