The kind of movie that lingers on in your head, just like the best fairy tales do.
Our house in Michigan is close to one Carl Sandburg lived in for 20 years on the shore of Lake Michigan. On his birthday, I went searching on the web for footage of him reading his poetry, and to my surprise found none. I know he appeared often on television. Something will probably turn up. I did however find this video, put together from photographs of a meeting between Sandburg and Marilyn Monroe. Photo montages don't often do much for me, but this one had something. A sweetness. Two lovely people.My introduction to the film criticism of Carl Sandburg. Carl Sandburg: The Harbert Years . Then I found this. The voice is Sandburg's.
