George Malko -- "We Really, Really Wanted the Vice-President and the Premier..."

George Malko, a screenwriter, novelist and translator who teaches Dramatic Writing at the NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, was assigned to the RCA color studio in July 1959. He describes what he and colleagues did to prepare for the impending visit of Khrushchev and Nixon to the Sokolniki exhibition, and how Malko unexpectedly came to have a speaking role as the two leaders squared off in front of the Ampex videotape camera.

  1. Brilliant piece of History! So visually presented by Mr George Malko... Like an episode from very good feature film. Thank you Mr. Malko.
