Quote:
"I was meeting Peter Pearson [at a retrospective of National Film Board documentaries], and I noticed him talking to a very nice-looking older woman. She was talking animatedly, and then I noticed that she was crying. Later I asked him why the woman was crying. He told me that her name was Evelyn Cherry and that she had worked at the [National] Film Board in the early days. He said that she was talking about a witch hunt, a purge that had taken place there."
