Hollywood Maverick John Milius

From Standing Room Only, 2:25 pm on 12 May 2019

Hollywood maverick John Milius was a good example of the old warning: "keep your politics out of the movies".

A self-proclaimed right-wing anarchist Milius seems to be the direct link between Dirty Harry and Conan the Barbarian, Nixon and Schwarzeneggar, right up to the present incumbent of the White House. 

Milius did after all write the famous lines you'll find in this clip from Apocalypse Now.

Victoria University academic Alfio Leotta has written a book on the great Hollywood maverick writer-director John Milius, which has been recently published by Lexington Books.
