Sean Connery as narrator for "The Prince and the Grail"
Without wishing to gild the lily by adding to the numerous e-mails which
have already alluded
to the exciting prospect of enlisting the aid of the charismatic figure
of Sean Connery to be the
narrator of Bob Hutt's film "The Prince and the Grail" which is
being made in Canada, let me
try to draw the various strands together so that a clearer picture might
emerge of its universal
The evidence for this truly dramatic story - for this historical
re-evaluation and revelation - is
indelibly hewn in stone on both sides of the Atlantic: from the carving
of the medieval knight
on a rockface at Westford, Massachusetts to the carvings of Indian maize
and the North Ameican
aloe cacti to be found amongst the myriad of carvings in Rosslyn Chapel,
Scotland - all carved
before Columbus was born.
For ease of assimilation, let me tabulate a few of the things
which the film embraces:
'true' discovery of America
legend of the Holy Grail
mystery of the Templar treasure
'identity' of the Westford Knight
sacred geometry of Newport Tower, Rhode Island
Micmac legend concerning Glooscap
Knights Templar and the Masons
All these mysteries are brought together to form the building bricks of
the film of the Century - a
film which will appeal to:
25m people worldwide who claim Scottish descent
Scandinavians of Viking descent - Henry Sinclair was
premier 'jarl' of Norway
Norman French - the St Clairs were Norman barons and
to William 'the Conqueror'
Italians - Henry's admirals came from Venice
12m. Masons in America
present day Knights Templar
Amerindians who find nothing to celebrate on Columbus Day.
Indeed, all Americans - whether they are of indigenous or immigrant stock
- have reason to celebrate
the arrival of Prince Henry Sinclair because in him they will find a man
who combined courage with
chivalry; vision with action; ambition with compassion; humility with
greatness (for no man can be truly
great without a measure of humility).
Henry's treatment of the indigenous people of America was impeccable by
the standard of his day.
He was a true Prince of men whereas Columbus was a mercenary with all the
greed and brutality of
that breed of man.
The history of America will be shown in a way which will emphasise the
pride of achievement
rather than the shame of conquest; which will tell about peaceful
co-existence with the indigenous
people of America rather than their extermination in the name of 'moral
sanitation' (which was the
term the Conquistadores used to justify wholesale slaughter. Today,
it is referred to as 'ethnic cleansing'
which is equally repugnant and equally reprehensible).
This is a story which simply has to be told and, if the film has a
narrator of the calibre and stature of
a man like Sean Connery, it will have all the greater impact. Bob
Hutt has done the preparation.
Ideally, Sean must be persuaded to do the presentation.
Who can convince him of the merit of his involvement?
In a separate e-mail I am forwarding Sean,s address, the name of
his Secretary (if she is still with him)
and her telephone number because, for obvious reasons, I do not wish to
see his privacy being invaded.
