'Ford v Ferrari': Or, Goliath v David
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:39PM / Thursday, November 21, 2019

That's car enthusiast colloquium for Enzo Ferrari and Henry Ford II. And the automobile industry version of "The Cask of Amontillado" to which I allude concerns Ferrari adding insult to industry when he not only rebuffed the Detroit magnate's attempt to buy his Prancing

100 Cats for Christmas

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
