President Barack Obama, more than any previous president, has dominated the media. Hardly a day passes without front page or prime time TV coverage of the president weighing in on something. The adoring media can’t get enough of this photogenic and voluble president. A friendly media is a huge advantage to a politician seeking to promote an ambitious domestic agenda.

In 1955 Billy Wilder said, “I'll never work with Monroe again,” after dealing with the screen star's unpredictability and lateness on the set of The Seven Year Itch. But just four years later, the idea of having the ultimate bombshell in his next film was too tempting to resist. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis had already signed on, and the project was launched. Three-quarters of Some Like It Hot feature the Hotel del Coronado, across the bay from San Diego. The extravagant oceanfront hotel hadn't… Continue
