LBJ Speaks to Students on US Vietnam Presence (1965)
Due to popular demand (from a frenzy of email received after the podcast of the very first episode of Mr. Projector! : "The Mistakes we Make"), we are proud to present for your viewing pleasure this gem, featured on Friday's show!
Many of you had questions regarding the source of the LBJ portions of the show. Here are some answers:
This clip is from the Hearst-Metronome Publishing Company's amazing Screen News Digest series of films that flooded the American public school system throughout the sixties. The clip has been significantly cut (thanks to our fabulously creative ThinkStream staff) from the original 16mm print entitled "Why Are We in Vietnam?". Oh yeah, and we've added a new soundtrack.
If the subject matter seems uncannily familiar to you, it's none of our doing; it's simply the nature of history.
Enjoy, and keep those comments, questions, and emails coming! Mr. Projector wants to hear from you!
Oh - and did Mr. "P" remind you to ENTER THE CONTEST? Do it. You'll be happy you did!
