Schickel signing ‘Mr. Zip Zip’

Tome talk leans towards wartime movies

The American Film Institute hosted a book signing for Richard Schickel’s “Good Morning, Mr. Zip Zip Zip: Movies, Memory, and World War II” on Thursday at the home of Kate Edelman Johnson.

AFI CEO Jean Firstenberg was among those on hand to hear the author speak about his work.

“I started out to write a memoir that included how all those war movies affected — for good or ill — the way we think about the world,” Schinkel said. “And the more I thought about it, the more I thought: ‘Damn that was a bunch or lies they were peddling.”
