What’s next: A William F. Buckley biopic?
Time’s Richard Corliss doffs his cap to Sony for recognizing unlikely boss office potential in a movie about a best-selling writer and public television personality from decades gone by. He then puckishly suggests a few other PBS graybeards worthy of attention, namely “The Firing Line” host, Alistair Cooke and David Attenborough. “How about a Lawrence Welk retro-musical?” he continues. “Or ‘Bachelor Friends Forever: The Bert & Ernie You Never Knew?'” Feel free to suggest your own unlikely projects.
