In 1904, a middle aged man and his stepson were kidnapped in a Pedicaris incident, although both were not harmed. This incident would inspire the 1975 film, The Wind And The Lion, written and directed by John Milius, which blended historical facts in a fictional adventure, in which an American woman, Eden Perdicaris (Candice Bergen) and her two children, are kidnapped by Berber brigand Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli (Sean Connery), prompting U.S. President (and former LIU: Post neighbor) Theodore Roosevelt (Brian Keith) to send an armed invasion and rescue mission. The film was released on May 22nd, 1975, and was very well received. We will discuss the film, and view it in its entirety, and discuss the film’s impact on popular culture and the political world. Fee $20. To register, please call 516-299-2580. Class will be presented in Lorber Hall, on the LIU: Post campus.
