[nice clean copy, with minor wear at the bottom corners, slight wrinkling at left edge of rear cover]. (B&W photographs, ads) This issue's features are: an account of filming the documentary HARVEST in Ethiopia, by the filmmaker Elliot Davis; an interview with director Peter Davis about the making of his Vietnam War documentary HEARTS AND MINDS (which would go on to win the Oscar as the year's best documentary feature); two articles on the production of the TV special "Juice on the Loose," about O.J. Simpson (one of which, by co-producer Richard Rubinstein, goes into great detail about the process of selling the independently-produced program to network TV); and an interview with director Jilll Godmilow about the making of her documentary film ANTONIA: A PORTRAIT OF THE WOMAN, a profile of America's first woman orchestra conductor, Dr. Antonia Brico. Also: a one-page profile of American International Pictures, with extensive quotations from its chairman and president Samuel Z. Arkoff; a "Filmmakers Notebook" feature about the use of widescreen systems; and a lengthy report on that year's Tehran International Film Festival, by Betty Jeffries Demby. And as typical for this publication, a substantial amount of space is devoted to news of interest to filmmakers (much of it concerning equipment and techniques for 8mm and videotape formats), product reviews, reviews of technical film books, etc.
