  1. It’s self-serving, self-aggrandizing and every other “self” thing I can imagine, but I ALWAYS wanted to see a movie about The Shutdown at the Cardinal. I see the scene in my mind’s eye over and over again that you wrote about figuring out how at the last minute as the paper was about to die, the question, “Thought process. Do we need 30 days or do we need a month?” saved the day.
    I can even hear the music in the background.
    Someone get on this.

  2. I doubt that a 2-hr format would be possible, but a 12- to 15-part series onGravity’s Rainbow would be my cup of tea.
    Would be horrendously expensive and great fun.

  3. The War of 1812. Pretty interesting, especially for Midwesterners and New Englanders, but virtually unknown to almost everyone.

  4. Our role in Latin America. A documentary, of course. Reminder: Full Frame, the Documentary Film Festival, is this April. Great films and you get to buy the film makers drinks at the bar. One year I ate lunch with Oscar-winner Barbara Kopple and didn’t know it. She was delightful.

  5. They’re making a movie of The Monuments Men? Wow, I need to finish that book.

  6. I’d like to see Prof. Harry Frankfurt’s ‘On Bullshit’ made into a feature length documentary.
