Personal Quote:

They did everything wrong - everything. To fill the shadows around Nixon's eyes, they put a light on the floor in front of him, and it washed him out. And they powdered his beard, which made it worse. [discussing the lighting in the first Nixon-Kennedy debate, in a 1970 interview with the Chicago Tribune]


He got rid of the lurid fluorescent lights that were a staple of early television. He used incandescent lights and shadows to downplay double chins and balding pates. See more »
