Auteur Watch - G. S. Brown
That's Georg Stanford Brown to you, honky! Yes, with our perpetual love for '70s TV shows, where's the love for Mr. Brown here? Mannix! The Rookies! Roots... we still like Roots, right? It hasn't been remade yet... has it? Well, my stupid new software program wasn't able to find a connection between him and Spielberg, but this is pretty close: one of his last directorial efforts was The Reading Room, starring no one less than the voice of Darth Vader, the talented and insistent Republican James Earl Jones. That's... pretty close, right? Of course, the dude's over 80 years old, so you might have to shout in his ear a bit.
