It's True! ATI Students learn to Swear
It's True! is our feature where we recount weird news or occurrences from our ATI days.
Today's memory is about the movie Cromwell, with Richard Harris. Mr. Gothard loved to show this movie at conferences and gatherings. Because the movie had some mild swearing, ATI created a copy of the movie with the swear words bleeped out.
Perhaps the tech guys didn't test it before showing it to the crowd I was in, but the beep was about three seconds late. The movie characters would be talking, one would swear, and then you'd hear the belated beep.
English Gentleman: "Where is that bloody Cromwell? I think we ought to [BEEP!]."
Other English Gentleman: "Yes, d*** him! Shall we ride over to [BEEP!]?"
