A couple of days ago, my colleague, Gini Mascorro, posted a notice about The Sixth Floor Museum’s screening of the PBS documentary, Oswald’s Ghost that took place yesterday at the renovated Texas Theater in Oak Cliff. No doubt great promotion was the big card played by having it at the movie theater where Oswald was captured, but it still took courage to do it. Good for the Sixth Floor for pushing ahead.
There’s a review in today’s Dallas Morning News, which you should check out. Although the reviewer decries the lack of the film’s theatrical release in Dallas, I need to remind that it will be broadcast by KERA 13 on January 14 at 9 p.m. So all you have to do is tune in.
Aside from reviews, you can also access Liane Hansen’s interview with the director, Robert Stone on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday.
And while I’m speaking of promotion, KERA13’s broadcast of Oswald’s Ghost will be followed by KERA’s production of JFK:Breaking the News at 10:30 p.m. Krys Boyd, who does a fantastic job of hosting KERA’s Think, produced the documentary along with others on staff.
Click and Clack may have their department of shameless commerce at Car Talk, but I have one of shameless KERA promotion and it resides in my heart.
