We’re extraordinarily lucky that technology progressed to the point where we could so easily capture and share the stories and legends of mid-century movie stars in those stars’ own words before they’ve all faded away. TCM is the primary instrument of this, with their interview series that they release uncut in audio podcast form. The most recent edition, with Debbie Reynolds, is delightful. The Creative Screenwriting podcast also recently recorded and released a discussion between Eva Marie Saint and Martin Landau at the TCM film festival screening of North by Northwest. It’s beautiful to hear reminisces of being directed by Hitchcock or given dancing instruction by Gene Kelly by the performers themselves, and how fortunate we are that we can now hear them ourselves.
