BROADCAST: Nov. 11, 1977 | DURATION: 00:53:35


Studs Terkel and Jerzy Kosinski express their own views on the morality of protagonist George Levanter from Blind Date. Terkel sees him as a vigilante whereas Kosinski sees him as a responsible social reformer. Kosinski states that ethics are viewed differently by Europeans based upon their history of invasions and betrayal which lends itself to an individual code of ethics as exemplified by George Levanter.
