The Story Behind The Story of Josey Wales
« on: December 31, 2021, 07:24:18 AM »
... this is a movie that I've enjoyed watching more that once, but I never knew that it was written by the racist bastard who wrote much of the hate filled speech of George Wallace.  :-[

The Story Behind The Story of Josey Wales
The movie was based on the book, The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales  by Asa Earl Carter
Quote
Asa Earl Carter (September 4, 1925 – June 7, 1979) was a 1950s segregationist speech writer, and later Western novelist. He co-wrote George Wallace's well-known pro-segregation line of 1963, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever", and ran in the Democratic primary for governor of Alabama on a segregationist ticket. Years later, under the alias of supposedly Cherokee writer Forrest Carter, he wrote The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales (1972), a Western novel that led to a 1976 National Film Registry film, and The Education of Little Tree (1976), a best-selling, award-winning book which was marketed as a memoir but which turned out to be fiction.

Ouch! But yes, a lot of things like that were done the same way.
