Martin Luther King

  1. William Quinn, Advise & Consent, 1961.    One of director Otto Preminger’s loonier real-life casting ideas for Senator Paul Hendershot – when there were no blacks in the Senate, circa 61. Preminger thought it could have a positive impact, King felt quite the opposite, that it could even cause hostility and hurt the civil rights movement.
