This is my favorite of all the network TV specials that Gene and Roger did. They did one on Spike Lee, Whoopi Goldberg, Wesley Snipes, and John Singleton, which I’ll upload tomorrow. They did another one called "The Future of Movies", with Spielberg, Lucas, and Scorsese, which I don’t know if I have.

Their best performances:

Bruce Willis: 12 Monkeys
Jodie Foster: Taxi Driver
Michael Caine: Hannah and Her Sisters (although I don’t think he’s ever given a bad one).

I find it very interesting that Willis should consider Cary Grant his hero, as I’ve always considered him to be Grant’s successor. He has the same cool, sophisticated movie persona and has the same illusory, debonair that allows him to fit easily into the mould of a Hollywood but seldom earns him much respect from his contemporary critics for carrying the emotional load in his films so effortlessly. He also has a remarkable talent for light comedy, which is evident in almost every role he plays.

You guys wanna know what their best performances are?

Bruce Willis: Die Hard
Jodie Foster: The Silence of the Lambs
Michael Caine: The Destructors (The Marseille Contract)

And that’s just my opinions.

A terrific special. The next time I watch a movie, I’m probably going to notice something about the actors eye contact or head turning

Excellent special - required viewing for any actor, film or otherwise. The genius of S&E is the way they can take an academic subject an make it entertaining and accessible, as they have done here.
