Joe the Magician – video now in Museum of the Moving Image

Posted by Joe M. Turner | on November 6, 2008

In what is almost certainly the final chapter of my little campaign video, I just found it online at The Living Room Candidate, a project of the Museum of the Moving Image.

My video is a commentary-captioned retrospective of “real person political ads” going back to the 1950s! It includes footage of supporters, presidents and candidates — Eisenhower, JFK, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Kerry, Edwards… and me! This particular collection was put together by Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Errol Morris.

A grateful hat tip to Mr. Morris for including me in his playlist!

What an interesting odyssey this has been!
