Eclectique916.com with the Zhanra Group (Clayton LeBouef), and the Rod Serling Memorial Foundation presented screenings of THE MAN at Busboys and Poets; then there was National Geographic, and then THE MAN was invited to the Lake Arts Foundation Festival in Chautauqua, NY followed by discussions led with Clayton LeBouef (“Homicide: Life on the Street,” “Something the Lord Made,” “The Wire”). We’re putting this and other “lost films” back into the public conscious – “Make the Public Conscious” (MTPC). Some of the themes and stories of the films may even strike a chord with what Rod Serling described as the mission for writers, “Menace the Public Conscience (MTPC).”
As the 2nd innauguration of President Barack Obama is about to take place in Washington, DC, THE MAN is going to Baltimore, MD for a FREE screening and discussion led by Clayton LeBouef.

The script, written by Rod Serling (best known as the creator of the classic television series “The Twilight Zone”) is based on the novel of the same name by Irving Wallace, and directed by Joseph Sargent (“Something the Lord Made,” “Warm Springs,” “Taking of Pelham One Two Three”). The film was intended to debut as a television movie, but received a short theatrical release in 1972 with an opening run at Baltimore’s Charles Theater.
The presentations of THE MAN is part of a preservation campaign to rediscover and redistribute “lost films.”
