Love in the Ancient World (1998)

Director's Comments

On Monday evening in New York City on 26th January 1998, in the house of a friend Ray Frier on West 46th Street, I was invited for one of the early internet interviews for the launching of my book "Love in the Ancient World" for Barnes and Noble. We failed to connect up because at that very moment the internet was blocked with traffic about the then US President and Monica Lewinsky, so all the interviews had to be done on the telephone.

By then many had seen the film, and also (as you will read from the references), some interviewers were wondering if the sort of presidential behaviour they were reading about would have been acceptable in the Ancient World……..?
