"Good to see you mention the Great Debaters," writes Phil Messinger. "I've been scouting locations for it since Feb. and have covered most of northwest La. filling in the blanks. If all goes well, it should be an important film. I still haven't run into DW, though.
You should show up for that casting call to be in the Harvard debate scenes, though there might not have been soul patches in 1935."

I have a daughter that is a 10 yrs. old African American little girl and she strongly desires to be an actress. She recently was an extra in "The Gaurdian" and made it into the movie during the classroom scene. I am interested in finding out if there is a need for a 10 year old female in "The Great Debate". I would love for her to have an opportunity to audition for a part b/c she was very sad that we could not make the casting call. Please let me know where I can send her photo's. My email address is Thanks!
