Summary On April 30, 1971, a standing-room-only crowd of New York's intellectual elite packed the city's Town Hall theater to see Norman Mailer, fresh from the controversy over his essay 'The Prisoner of Sex' and the backlash it received from leaders of the women's movement, tangle with a panel of four prominent female thinkers and activists: Jacqueline Ceballos, Germaine Greer, Jill Johnston, and Diana Trilling.
Note Special features: new interview with Hegedus; audio commentary from 2004 featuring Hegedus and author Germaine Geer; footage from a 2004 celebration of the film, which brought together participants Greer, Jacqueline Ceballos and Jill Johnston and directors Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker; appearance from 1971 on The Dick Cavett Show by author Norman Mailer, promoting his book The prisoner of sex; archival interviews with Greer and Mailer; essay by film critic Melissa Anderson.
