Davis Guggenheim, the director of Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth,
told the Washington Post, "As I got into Al's story, I see a human being who's made some tough, tough choices in his life. After the 2000 election? To go back deeper and deeper into this issue? To decide that it is the most important thing he can do. . . . I see how tireless he is. That, to me, is so dramatic, so inspiring."
Al Gore played a slide show of his environmental work to Laurie David, wife to the creator of HBO's Curb your Enthusiasm, Larry David, after the premiere of the global warming doomsday film, "The Day After Tomorrow." Laurie David had Al Gore meet with "Pulp Fiction" producer, Lawrence Bender, and eBay founder, Jeffrey Skoll, to get Al Gore's movie financed. An Inventory of Truth
has made $4 million since opening on May 24.
