Richard Skipper Celebrates
For the video edition, click here and subscribe: https://youtu.be/RchGykWVPbMSubscribe to Richard Skipper Celebrates on YouTube and be entered in drawing for a copy of Sidney Lumet: A Life by Maura Spiegel Acclaimed as the ultimate New York movie director, Sidney Lumet began his astonishing five-decades-long directing career with the now classic 12 Angry Men, followed by such landmark films as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and Network. His remarkably varied output included award-winning adaptations of plays by Anton Chekhov, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, and Eugene O’Neill, whose Long Day’s Journey into Night featured Katharine Hepburn and Ralph Richardson in their most devastating performances.Renowned as an “actor’s director,” Lumet attracted an unmatched roster of stars, among them: Henry Fonda, Sophia Loren, Marlon Brando, Anna Magnani, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Newman, Al Pacino, Ethan Hawke, and Philip-Seymour Hoffman, accruing eighteen Oscar nods for his actors along the way.Maura Spiegel is a born and bred New Yorker, and has been teaching literature and film at Columbia University for over two decades.https://www.amazon.com/Sidney-Lumet-Life-Maura-Spiegel/dp/1250030153 https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001486 https://www.indiewire.com/2012/04/the-films-of-sidney-lumet-a-retrospective-252714
After reading Maura Spiegel's terrific new biography, Sidney Lumet: A Life, Dan invited her on the show to talk about her work. She, Mike, and Dan discuss Lumet's growing up in a world of theater and television, what his triumphs have in common, and some ideas about why too many viewers might take his talent for granted. Come spend a few minutes with us talking to a great biographer about the great director of The Verdict, Prince of the City, and Network--all covered in previous episodes.
