Realizing Dan's betrayal, Jonas beats him up and heads out. Jonas replaces Rina with Jennie Denton[ edit ] Jonas goes on an alcoholic binge and disappears. Finally, he dries out.

He calls Monica to help him find and re-hire her father, to run the new facility. Monica takes that as a hopeful sign and comes unannounced to Jonas' hotel room, bringing their lovely daughter who is unaware that Jonas is her father.
Ironically, Monica walks into a replay of the set-up from years back. Just as Jonas seems happy to see her, eager to get to know his child, Jennie steps out of the bedroom, clearly nude except for a white mink coat. This debacle is truly an accident, but Monica walks out, hurt and disgusted. Jonas is too proud to go after her and too tough to show any feelings.
Instead he coldly demands that Jennie demonstrate how much she likes her new coat and they have sex. Having lost any chance with Monica, Jonas begins to groom Jennie for marriage. She accepts his proposal, believing they're in love. Her career continues to flourish a glamour photo of her is shown on the cover of the October 18, issue of the fictional magazine Commentbut she is in for a rude awakening.
Jonas cuts his ties with old associates, his aviation partner Buzz and his longtime lawyer Mac. Both have grown tired of his bullying and using them. They're glad to go.

Upset and in tears, Jennie goes to Jonas to confess, breaking their engagement to spare him. She tells him, "I don't want you to get hurt. He's had her investigated as he always does so he knows all about her past.
He brags that he made her a star, made her eligible to marry him. So he can have her services conveniently available, all to himself. So what if she's been had all over town? People won't dare to disparage the wife of the rich and powerful Jonas Cord; do that and he'll destroy them. With her dream of loving shattered, Jennie runs out devastated. Jonas of course lets her go, seemingly unfazed.
Jonas has a fistfight with Nevada and returns to Monica[ edit ] Seeing the wreckage of both their lives, Nevada Smith confronts Jonas with fighting words, ending by saying "You're crazy. Both get in solid punches, falling over and breaking the furniture.
At last they lie there, bruised and bloody. Then Nevada stands up and really lets Jonas have it. Nevada says Jonas is full of hatred and fear, hatred for his cruel father and fear of becoming insane like his long lost twin brother.
He takes out his anger on anyone who cares about him. He's destroying everything that really matters. Monica truly loved him. They have a beautiful healthy daughter which proves there's no hereditary insanity lurking in his future. Jonas breaks down, crying because he never even got to speak to his brother, who was locked away when they were infants. He kept rushing to accomplish all he could, fearing insanity might overtake him any moment. Jonas sees how empty his hectic life is, how he's thrown away happiness and replaced it with money and power.
He's made plenty of enemies, but no real friends.
Oh no, there's been an error
Except Nevada, who stuck by him even when Jonas sabotaged his career. He aimed to paint the British war effort as beneficial to the United States by arguing that they would contain the Nazi threat from spreading across the Atlantic. We are the Arsenal of Democracy. Our national policy is to keep war away from this country. Roosevelt, Fireside chat delivered on December 29, Churchill's edited copy of the final draft of the Atlantic Charter To assist the British war effort, Roosevelt enacted the Lend-Lease policy and drafted the Atlantic Charter with Churchill.
They connected on their shared passions for tobacco and liquorsand their mutual interest in history and battleships. Churchill answered his door in a state of nudity, remarking, "You see, Mr.
President, I have nothing to hide from you. Roosevelt died in Aprilshortly into his fourth term in office, and was succeeded by his vice president, Harry Truman. Churchill and Truman likewise developed a strong relationship with one another.
While he was saddened by the death of Roosevelt, Churchill was a strong supporter of Truman in his early presidency, calling him, "the type of leader the world needs when it needs him most. The two of them had come to like one another.
During their coinciding tenure as heads of government, they only met on three occasions. The two did not maintain regular correspondence. Their working relationship with each other, nonetheless, remained sturdy. Attlee took Churchill's place at the conference once he was named Prime Minister on July Therefore, Attlee's first sixteen days as Prime Minister were spent handling negotiations at the conference. He had maintained his relationship with Truman during his six-year stint as Leader of the Opposition.
Inon invitation from Truman, Churchill visited the U. The speech, which would be remembered as the "Iron Curtain" speechaffected greater public attention to the schism that had developed between the Soviet Union and the rest of the Allied Powers. During this trip, Churchill lost a significant amount of cash in a poker game with Harry Truman and his advisors.
At the time, Truman's administration was supporting plans for a European Defence Community in hopes that it would allow West Germany to undergo rearmament, consequentially enabling the U. Churchill opposed the EDC, feeling that it could not work. He also asked, unsuccessfully, for the United States to commit its forces to supporting Britain in Egypt and the Middle East.
This had no appeal for Truman. Truman expected the British to assist the Americans in their fight against communist forces in Koreabut felt that supporting the British in the Middle East would be assisting them in their imperialist efforts, which would do nothing to thwart communism. Eisenhower would be elected president just over a year later. Eisenhower and Churchill were both familiar with one another, as they had both been significant leaders of the Allied effort during World War II.
Before either of them became heads of government, they worked together on the Allied military effort. When Nasser seized the canal in July and closed the Straits of Tiran to all Israeli ships,  Eden made a secret agreement with France and Israel to invade Egypt.
Eisenhower repeatedly warned the United States would not accept military intervention. When the invasion came anyway, the United States denounced it at the United Nations, and used financial power to force the British and French to completely withdraw.
Britain lost its prestige and its powerful role in Mid-Eastern affairs, to be replaced by the Americans. Eden, in poor health, was forced to retire. Once he took office, Macmillan worked to undo the strain that the Special Relationship had incurred in the preceding years. Skybolt was a nuclear air-to-ground missile that could penetrate Soviet airspace and would extend the life of Britain's deterrent, which consisted only of free-falling hydrogen bombs.
London saw cancellation as a reduction in the British nuclear deterrent. The crisis was resolved during a series of compromises that led to the Royal Navy purchasing the American UGM Polaris missile and construction of the Resolution-class submarines to launch them. Great Britain has lost an empire and has not yet found a role.
The attempt to play a separate power role—that is, a role apart from Europe, a role based on a 'Special Relationship' with the United States, a role based on being the head of a ' Commonwealth ' which has no political structure, or unity, or strength and enjoys a fragile and precarious economic relationship—this role is about played out.
In so far as he appeared to denigrate the resolution and will of Britain and the British people, Mr. Acheson has fallen into an error which has been made by quite a lot of people in the course of the last four hundred years, including Philip of SpainLouis XIVNapoleonthe Kaiser and Hitler. He also seems to misunderstand the role of the Commonwealth in world affairs. In so far as he referred to Britain's attempt to play a separate power role as about to be played out, this would be acceptable if he had extended this concept to the United States and to every other nation in the Free World.
This is the doctrine of interdependence, which must be applied in the world today, if Peace and Prosperity are to be assured. I do not know whether Mr. Acheson would accept the logical sequence of his own argument.
I am sure it is fully recognised by the US administration and by the American people. Neustadt in his official investigation concluded the crisis in the Special Relationship had erupted because "the president's 'Chiefs' failed to make a proper strategic assessment of Great Britain's intentions and its capabilities". Alec Douglas-Home only entered the race to replace the resigning Macmillan as Leader of the Conservative Party after learning from the British ambassador to the United States that the Kennedy administration was uneasy at the prospect of Hailsham being Prime Minister.
In England, Kennedy's assassination in November caused a profound shock and sadness expressed by many politicians, religious leaders, and luminaries of literature and the arts. Sir Laurence Olivier at the end of his next performance called for a moment of silence, followed by a playing of "The Star Spangled Banner.
