This week’s video of the week was retweeted by Hopscotch Films this week to celebrate the release of To Rome With Love in Australia. It’s the cast of ‘To Rome With Love‘ – Ellen Page, Penélope Cruz, Greta Gerwig, Alec Baldwin – and Woody Allen’s sister and producer, Letty Aronson, on the PBS show ‘Charlie Rose‘ hosted by Charlie Rose. Woody Allen himself doesn’t appear.
‘Charlie Rose‘ has been running for over 20 years and is a mainstay of American television. As Rose describes it, they talk about “Fame, Rome and movie-making”. The cast talks about working with Allen, and their opinions on him, and his process. If you’ve seen ‘To Rome With Love‘, it’s a great conversation and digs deeper into some of the scenes and background. If not, it’s spoilers ahoy.
Biggest revelation for us? Allen actually approves all the posters and trailers (then why are the DVDs so awful?).
The 50 minute interview/show is split over three parts.
Over the years he’s interviewed many in Woody Allen’s world and promoting a Woody Allen film. They are now all available in Charlie Rose’s extensive archive. Conversations with Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, Kenneth Branagh, Mira Sorvino and more. Check out all the Woody Allen related interviews.
