... premieres tonight on Turner Classic Movies at 8 p.m. (Eastern time). It’s called “Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence.”
The series begins with Elvis’s interview with filmmaker Sydney Pollack, who passed away in May. The show will be followed at 8:30 by Pollack’s classic comedy, “Tootsie.”
In the coming weeks, Elvis’s guests will be Bill Murray, Laurence Fishburne and Quentin Tarantino.
I can’t think of anyone I’d rather watch chatting with movie people about movies than Elvis Mitchell.
A brief promo video is embedded below.
Bay Area blogger Michael Guillen recently did an entertaining interview with Elvis, and you can read it here.
UPDATE (07/07/08): I just watched the Sydney Pollack interview, and it is wonderful. Now I’m wondering why TCM has only produced eight episodes of this show.
