I did a quick search but couldn't find what he said.
And I have no interest in watching this, could you post what he said?
Thanks,

Okay, turns out it's not the source of his speech against altering movies (that one's from five years later), but he does say this in it which seems a little hilarious in hindsight;

Actually, that's my handwriting.

mom originally had written very lightly in pencil, -in case she eventually decided to re-record the tape, a bit of a habit of hers, at the time-
and, decades later, it had begun to fade towards incomprehensibility.

well, the cassette had certainly turned out to be a keeper, so it was about time it finally got permanently marked...

Ah, thanks, I can totally see someone like that saying that and then changing their mind to make more money :lol:
