APR has made arrangements to show the film at Troy University’s Davis Theater Oct. 1. Tickets are on sale now through this link.
But it wasn’t easy.
“Atticus v. The Architect: The Political Assassination of Don Siegelman,” as the documentary is officially named, was originally set to be shown at the Capri Theater in Montgomery in July. But former Federal Prosecutor Leura Canary, who serves on the Capri board, convinced her fellow board members in June to rescind that rental agreement. ... ... ...
Enter: Troy president Dr. Jack Hawkins.
Officials at Troy were cautious as well. After initially agreeing verbally to the rental of the Davis Theater, APR received word that only Hawkins could approve the rental.
There was one small problem. Hawkins was in Vietnam.
Bill Britt tried him through email anyway, laying out the details and asking for assistance. Hawkins responded right back, saying he was writing from China Beach, where he took his platoon of Marines 50 years earlier.
“We are committed to freedom of speech and transparency,” Hawkins wrote. “Within the Academy and within a free society there is little room for censorship.”
That did the trick. A contract was prepared and signed within days.
troyalumni: I know he got hurt, but wasn't sure if he came back or not. Glad he is ok.

trojantke: If you get bored during the day, go check out the Jags Jungle thread on score predictions. Needless to say, most of them are apparently drinking vodka for breakfast.
