Field of Dreams : The Best Confrontational Moment

The Best Confrontational Moment

was when Annie Kinsella stood up to that obvious witch of a woman at the town hall meeting and won the argument. That was cool.

Re: The Best Confrontational Moment

Cool, yes. But with just an ounce of intelligence and passable speaking skills a person can often win an opposition to book bans and oppression. Both sides speak to a person's emotions so you have to make the stronger emotional impact. Beulah was appealing to the community's fear of free speech. Annie was appealing to the community's love of it.

Love may not always conquer fear, but when love can also call the opposition a "Nazi cow", it's a slam dunk.

I wanted Annie to respond to Buelah's comment of "At least I'm not married to a horse's ass" with "No, but your husband is".

I don't know, I thought it was the weakest scene in the movie. Annie won over that rabidly McCarthyist crowd just a little too easily. With an appeal to "The Sixties!" no less.
