Director, Actor & Producer Bill Duke
I had the pleasure of talking with the very talented Bill Duke. Most remember him from the 70's classic CAR WASH. He was also in PREDATOR and a bunch of other Film & TV shows. Anyway, I asked the multifaceted & multitalented Duke what he was up to and he said he was working on a documentary about the first Black Baseball players in the national league with a focus on the legendary Hank Aaron.
After that, I asked him his thoughts on Inglorious Bastards and whether a movie about slaves hunting down and killing their slave masters would ever get made. He said no, it wouldn't get the financing. I'll add the video later.
