Many thanks to Don Rosen for inviting me on his radio program for a long talk about the movies we’re expecting this summer, “The Godfather” and its sequels, having Jerry Seinfeld as a kindergarten classmate (Don) and meeting President Kennedy (me).

You can hear the interview as a podcast here.

I had so much fun talking about “It’s a Wonderful Life” on its 75th anniversary for the Christmas Movies Actually podcast, especially about my interview with Marguerite Stern Robinson, the daughter of the man who wrote the original story for the film, and what she had in common with George Bailey.

Marx Brothers Podcast

Posted on September 2, 2021 at 8:51 pm

All fans of classic films and film comedy will appreciate The Marx Brothers Council, an outstanding podcast devoted to Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and sometimes Zeppo Marx. A great episode to begin with is this one, including a fascinating interview with Hanna Mira, who shows Marx Brothers and other classic films to her students at a juvenile detention facility. The old black and white films from the era of these boys’ great-grandfathers could hardly be more distant from their experience, and yet they love them. She tells their stories with such empathy, humanity, and enthusiasm we almost wish we could be in her classroom.
