The CIA and Hollywood – Tom and Pearse on Black Op Radio
Pearse and I were recently invited onto Black Op Radio with Len Osanic to talk about The CIA and Hollywood. We mostly discussed Ed Lansdale’s involvement in The Quiet American (1958), which butchered the original book in part as a result of Lansdale’s influence on writer/director Joseph Mankiewicz. We also touched on Charlie Wilson’s War and The Good Shepherd, and other recent films that are known or thought to have received support from the Agency.
