Can anyone recommend a good video on WALDEN or Thoreau?
We previewed "Thoreau's Walden" from FFH and didn't like it.
The one we like was produced by Films, Inc. and as far as we know is
only available on one nearly destroyed 16mm print at the from the
North Carolina Division of Cultural REsources, "State Library".
The title is "The Beat of a Different Drummer."
We saw a reference to an interesting-looking film, also in
16mm, listed in the 1990 Ed. Film and Video Locator, only available from
Indiana, called "Captain of a Huckleberry Party: Henry David Thoreau."
However, Indiana no longer rents films.
We called Films, Inc. about "The Beat of a Different Drummer."
and were told it is no longer available.
So...is there a really good video on Thoreau?
