    [Rostenkowski raw #303]

    Raw footage from the 1981 documentary “Rostenkowski,” a portrait of House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dan Rostenkowski, a powerful figure in Chicago (and national) politics. The beginning of the tape seems to be a Channel 5 (Chicago’s NBC affiliate) news report about the coming of cable television. At about four and a half minutes, the screen goes to bars & tone. “Rostenkowski” starts at around six minutes. Election day, 1980. Rostenkowski is interviewed in his office.

Around twenty-one minutes, “Rostenkowski” ends, and is followed by what appears to be a made-for-TV movie starring Richard Chamberlain. Continue reading
