Date: Fri, 15 Dec 1995 21:09:20 EST From: Beth Lee Simon Subject: Re: American Tongues I recently used "American Tongues" by calling it in thru interlibrary loan. I didn't specify a version, and the Indiana University system simply listed it as "American Tongues." The videotape I received was marked for high school, and did not come with a guide. No guide was listed in the catalog (or I think not. Hmm, don't quote me on that.) And boy! was I surprised because I knew only the full length version. The high school version (which is still excellent, but with a male voice over) lacks: the voice from nowhere, the n-word scene (complete with n-word sayer's friend signally "Not me" and trying to creep away), Molly Ivens, the film clips (no Brando), the stand-up saying "Charge?", the fishermen on the island, the Dickens/Austen discussion in the library, the Cajun French-English couple, Ted Hill showing an entry at DARE, and the two little girls doing "Mama Mama come here quick". What else? beth
