Subscriber Podcast #27 – The Suid Archive

Suid Archive Deep Impact

In this month’s subscriber-only podcast I explore several DOD-supported films and the files on them from the Lawrence Suid archive.  Focusing in on Air Force One, Deep Impact, The Final Countdown, Firefox and BAT-21 I outline the script changes forced on the film-makers in exchange for military support, from removing an unlit cigar through to altering President Morgan Freeman’s speeches so he didn’t say that looters will be shot.  I also examine how some script changes made in the name of apparent political correctness are actually quite racist and sexist.
