Subj: Red Tails (the Movie)


Please pass the word... 


> One of my friends was fortunate to see an advanced viewing of Red Tails.
> It's George Lucas' version of the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, 20 years in the
> making, and has a predominantly Black cast, all the main actors are Black.
> > > When the movie was finally ready for production, no production company would
> take it; as a result, George Lucas had to write a check.  After production was
> completed, no distribution company would take it. So, George Lucas wrote another
> check. The advanced viewing was sponsored by Wells Fargo and the Museum for
> Black History Diaspora (not sure of the exact name).
> > >
> > > The movie is intriguing and has edge-of-your-seat action. It's well done,
> and certainly worth seeing.
> > >
> > > I'm urging all of you to see this movie, and tell others about it as well.
> Anything we can do to ensure large numbers of viewers in the first few days of
> release (scheduled for Jan. 20th)  will make a statement to the production and
> distribution companies that WE ARE interested in SEEING this film,
> AND, that they
> made a miscalculation.
> > >
> > > If each of you tell as many people about this as you can, and attempt to take
> 4 or 5 people with you to see the film, that will be like a geometric
> progression, and could potentially push the numbers off the chart.
