Movie Moles: "Reds"

program date: 
Mon, 04/23/2012

This program takes its name, “the Old Mole,” from Marx’s image for the Revolution that works underground and suddenly emerges into daylight where least expected.  The first revolution approaching what he had in mind was the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.  In 1981, Warren Beatty produced, directed, and starred in a blockbuster movie Reds about the period.  Our Movie Moles, Joe Clement and Jan Haaken see much to like in its portrayal of the period and the life of political commitment.  The two main protagonists, John Reed and Louise Bryant, lived and met in Portland.
