Thomas Stearns Eliot reads to a film by Richard E. Schiff
"I first heard this read in an attic Poetry reading in 1964 and never forgot it. It was a thrill to find this recording treasure and pay homage to Eliot, at last."-Rich Schiff
If you have ever seen a good or a great movie, you realize that the
source of its greatness is more often than not the script. Words
have always been important to movies. First they were used to title
silent films. And those were rare on screen opportunities to convey
important action or dialogue. Thus the Poetry Film is conceived as a
new source for filmic expression.
