Robert Duvall was among the recipients yesterday of a National Medals of Arts. National Humanities Medals were also awarded, and a dinner at the White House followed. From the Post account:
Robert Duvall, the actor, was another arts medalist. Bush invited Duvall to come back to the White House soon to screen his new movie, “Daughters of Joy,” a four-hour western that will be shown next year over two nights on AMC. “Best horse I have ever had in a movie,” Duvall said. “It is about a horse drive and a guy who wants to make up with his nephew. It is not like ‘Deadwood,’ I don’t like ‘Deadwood.’ ” The presidential screening would not be Duvall’s first. “We showed ‘The Apostle’ to Clinton. That was up his alley. This would be up Bush’s alley,” he said.
