Jimmy Dunne’s rich family tree of  writers and journalists — including Finley Peter Dunne (Chicago’s most beloved 20th Century columnist), Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director Phillip Dunne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, along with his hometown Pacific Palisades hero, Will Rogers  — are his muses to create a contemporary column; commenting on the issues of the day….

PACIFIC PALISADES, CALIFORNIA.   FEBRUARY 16, 2012.
Every once in a blue moon a film comes around that captures a truth about who we are – and who we aspire to be.

I saw one last night…  “Undefeated.”

Run to see this documentary.  About an ordinary guy – who makes an extraordinary difference in the lives he touches.  It’s about patience.  It’s about humility.  It’s about respect.  It’s about passion.

It’s about being true to your noble cause – and having the will to stick with it.

It’s a movie that challenges every one of us…

Yours,

— Jimmy Dunne.
