: Well, in the interests of attempting to smooth things over and act as mediator among fellow LOTM fanatics and people I respect,

: unfortunately moving a privately held personal agenda (justified or not) there is one fact that remains.
: No matter what the personalities were behind the scenes, nor what the dynamics between them were.....they all worked together to turn out an excellent film. One which will become a classic if it has not already done so. That makes them ALL professionals and worthy of my respect. And worthy of my gratitude for producing a movie which I shall enjoy over and over again and which brings some new insights into a time period of which I am greatly interested. Whatever else, they did accomplish that admirably!! Right??

It has been my perception that most of the people who interact on this board are inclusive (rather than exclusionary) and that they treat each other with respect. Rich, I hope you know that anyone who matters doesn't think you are racist AT ALL. My philosophy is, if someone is abrasive and won't let up, ignore them!
I love this sight. I'm looking forward to getting back todiscussion of my favorite subject - how much I love LOTM! Thank you, Rich and Elaine, for providing a forum for the discussion.
