Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Print the legend.
who is that with tricky dicky? it's not fritz lang is it?
No, that is Mr. 'Print the Legend' himself, John Ford; receiving what I believe was the first Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute (you haven't lived until you've heard Richard Nixon wax poetic on Cinema).
ah i see!i'd love to hear nixon on cinema. andre bazin would have nothing on him i reckon.(go on guys make it happen!)
I do know that Nixon had a part time gig as an amateur editor. He "suggested" certain cuts in the movie 1776 to Jack Warner - specifically the song "Cool Considerate Men" - which J.L. hurried to make much to the movie's detriment. It's my favourite musical (yeah I know, I'm odd) but the restored version is by far the better movie.
