Censorship, "religious right" and "Heart of the Beholder"



Background



The story (that continues to this day!) is based on the true story of Ken Tipton and his family. It began, innocuously enough, with a client who was very pleased when Ken fixed a payroll computer on which someone had vomited when Ken worked for IBM. Ken's client gave him one of the first VCR players - you remember, the one's that weighed 60 lbs! This simple gesture gave the younger Tipton yet another entrepreneurial idea. Ken and his wife, pregnant with their first child, took all their savings and opened Video Library in St. Louis, Missouri.



Fast forward to the early 90's, after several attempts by a conservative group to weed out films that offended their sense of decency - i.e. "Splash" because Tom Hanks makes love to a mermaid - bestiality! When Martin Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" was released Ken, initially, complied with requests not to rent it through his growing Video Library chain. Tipton, later, changed his mind and put Scorsese's film back on the shelves. What follows, in the film "Heart of the Beholder", is a true depiction of intimidation, death threats, stings, duplicitous elected officials and, eventually, pay back.



It took years to make "Heart of the Beholder" and cost Tipton his family, his business and (almost) his life. "Heart of the Beholder" has won more "Best Feature Film" awards than any other independent movie ever; and, yet, no one will distribute this film because intimidation is still a present threat. Darlene Lieblich is the Executive Producer of "Heart of the Beholder", with Ken Tipton as the Writer|Director.

No idea what your talking about.

Note: I slept on Daryl Hannah's couch in 1996 at her Phoenix home, however I did not meet her.
