Do Some CEO’s Remind You Of Movie Stars You See on TCM?

Everybody looks like somebody, right?  Well, take a quick look at some of these CEO’s in the news, like Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America and Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla.  

Occasionally, I see a slight resemblance to some of the stars in the classic movies my wife and I see on TCM?  

Brian runs a serious bank where, no joke, I’m one of their happy go lightly depositing customers. 

While thankfully he stays seriously at the BOA helm, still he reminds us of a funny guy we see occasionally on Turner Classic Movies, that master of laughter, Red Skelton. 

Next, CEO Albert Bourla sure has good reason to smile these days.  His fabulous pharmaceutical Pfizer just hit the vaccine jackpot. 

Albert reminds me a little of the great actor Paul Muni whose jackpot was starring in the Academy-Award-nominated film “I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang.” In it, Muni becomes a successful businessman like Bourla. 

Right now we’re all fugitives of the coronavirus that’s been stalking us day and night, but thanks to Albert and Pfizer, there’s most welcome relief now in sight.

It’s amazing how many CEO’s are leading-man-types these days.  Look at PayPal’s Daniel Schulman. 

Don’t know if Dan can sing, but he looks a little like Vic Damone who Rita and I just saw the other night on TCM.

Vic was starring in Kismet (Take my hand, I’m a stranger in Paradise).  That MGM film marked an end of an era as one of the last Broadway musicals turned into a major, alas not so hot, Hollywood film.

So I say . . .
Take my hand
Where features from the forties shine
I’m no stranger in black-and-white land
When ere it’s TCM time

Finally, here are two omnipotent figures Ben and Jeffrey.  I wonder what their ice cream would taste like if they weren’t stars in their respective realms sharing hairless heads and daunting personalities. 

Ben Kingsley is best known for his starring role in Gandhi (1982), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Jeff, best known as the CEO of Amazon, was named the “richest man in modern history” after his net worth increased to $150 billion in July 2018. But forget the money for a minute and see how these two connect somehow visually and maybe even spiritually despite the vastly different roles they play. 

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. Mahatma Gandhi
