John Sculley: We'd be talking about the most tectonic shift in the status quo since...
During the Mac launch in 1984, John Sculley tells Steve Jobs that Apple's board of directors sent him as "the Steve whisperer" to calm Jobs down. The slang term "whisperer," used to refer to someone with an affinity for communicating with something stubborn, did not enter popular usage until the release of the novel "The Horse Whisperer" in 1995, and the subsequent film adaptation which was released in 1998.
The film's title is never shown in the opening or closing credits.
