Here’s Michael Caine’s first interview for American television, filmed during the summer of 1965 outside of his home in London. He and Merv talk about his new movie the IPCRESS File and the definition of “Cockney.

Delight little lark with Michael Caine talking about the working man’s James Bond (his words) and we see a treasured star shooting over the sky for the first time.

Friends are important, even for a great filmmaker like Fritz Lang.

Also sadly true. Business has infected Hollywood, or is that the other way around?

Sounds about right..

Startling remix of the Kubrick film (what is it about this piece of reel that inspires such fevered dreams?) that makes the already intense and scary film that much more demented.

Well, this is Xmas. It’s over. Everyone go home and drink and be merry.

At least it feels that way to me. What a illuminating interview. 76 minutes of Kubrick talking in 1966 (between Dr Strangelove and 2001: A Space Odyssey)

Not because it’s a profound interview. Oh No.

Because it’s just Kubrick shooting the shit, in his Bronx accent. He’s about 38 years old here, clearly a grown person. And yet he’s not the perfectionist, isolationist he’s hold up to be.

Not now, not ever.

He’s just a regular dude who happened to put one foot in front of the other, speak to his interests, and make films that made people happy and inspired.

Something we should all have the courage to do all the time.

Merry Xmas, everybody.

Amazing look (via PBS) at one of our most treasured films, showing how each scene is a different note to play in a nostalgia symphony.
