Hollywood elitist agenda alert! Conservative film director Lionel Chetwynd, who back in 2001 was appointed by George W. Bush to serve on the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, was supposed to release his 1987 drama Hanoi Hilton on DVD before next month’s election. Chetwynd even taped a promotional interview with one-time Hilton resident John McCain, which he was going to screen at the Creative Artists Agency. Except Warner Brothers, the studio that produced Hanoi Hilton, quietly stepped in and decided it wasn’t going to release the DVD until after the election so as to not affect the outcome “one way or the other.”
Since the only way the movie could conceivably affect the election is in McCain’s favor—something Dem-contributing studio heads apparently oppose—Chetwynd’s a little annoyed!
