Go Tell the Spartans
TED POST
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1989

"Ted Post has created a masterpiece. Go Tell the Spartans is beyond question the greatest work
to date on the Vietnam involvement. It is one of the
noblest films, ever, of men in crisis," said Roger Greems
of The Cincinnati Enquirer when Mr. Post's Go Tell the
Spartans
first came out in 1976.

Mr. Post is a three-time nominee for best director of
the year by the Directors Guild of America and two-time
recipient of the coveted Western Heritage Award for
directing. He has directed hundreds of stage, screen,
and television productions, featuring many of
Hollywood's top stars. His feature films include: Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) and, of course, Go Tell the
Spartans
(1976), which was hailed by critics as one of that
year's ten best films. For television he piloted "Cagney
and Lacy" and "Perry Mason," among many others.

Mr. Post is the fifth speaker in the Athenaeum's series
on the Vietnam War. His talk begins at 7:00 and is
preceded by a reception at 5:30 and dinner at 6:00.
