The Star-Spangled Banner : The Flag that Inspired the National Anthem by Lonn Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Francis Scott Key saw the United States flag still flying over Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland - signifying that the city had withstood the overnight British bombardment - he immediately sat down and wrote the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner." Since that September morning in 1814, the flag and the national anthem have occupied a special place in the hearts of Americans. The flag that withstood the "bombs bursting in air" and inspired the anthem has been cared for by the Smithsonian and exhibited to the public for almost a century. Here is the dramatic story." --Back cover

From his aerie high within the Houston Astrodome, with help from his offbeat friends, a boy is going to learn to fly with his homemade wings. Expect a miracle from young Brewster McCloud. Director Robert Altman (MASH, Nashville, Gosford Park) weaves an offbeat tale of young McCloud (Bud Cort--Harold and Maude) who lives in an abandoned bomb shelter inside the dome and studies the flight of his pet birds. He's helped in his quest by the seraphic Louise (Sally Kellerman), thwarted by Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton--The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz) and seduced by Suzanne (Shelley Duvall). But when murder victims start to appear--covered in telltale bird droppings--this story of a quirky young man with a dream to break free takes an ominous turn
