Editorial Reviews

Taped on September 3, 1968. Some of Mr. Capote's suggestions seem more interesting than practical (never let a psychopathic killer out of prison, but never let him know you're not going to let him out), but in the course of researching his book he acquired a deep knowledge of the homicidal mind and the implications for deterrence, punishment, and rehabilitation. "I'd known this boy was a psychopathic murderer, and I had known that if he went back into the prison population that it was inevitable that he would kill somebody again. So, I mean, there he is loose in the prison population still, and, of course, cannot be returned to death row and cannot be executed, having got a commutation. So what is the answer to this problem, where you have compulsive homicidal minds who are incapable of controlling this violence of theirs?" Summary by Firing Line staff.

It doesn't get much better than this, with regard to civil discourse and intellectual discussion of ideas. . .Capote and Buckley are two great minds...sharing, debating. ...and all with respect shown for each other. We are lacking this type of dialogue in today's society. This is well worth watching.

Current TV journalist need to watch this show to see how intelligent discussion
should be conducted. You talk I listen (without interrupting every second) I talk
you listen. It was a pleasant listen. Enjoy!

Very stuffy.... Watched this after having seen Capote and wanted to get a feel for the real Truman while I find him very interesting the interviewer was very over the top. Mildly entertaining.
