How does it feel to have directed a widely acknowledged masterpiece in not one but two different film genres? Only a handful of movie impresarios know, and chief among them is William Friedkin-the man who thrilled and terrified audiences with The French Connection and The Exorcist. In this program, Friedkin discusses the making of those classics and other hallmarks of his distinguished career. He recalls the laborious process of casting the Popeye Doyle role, as well as the equally challenging task of working with the brilliant, headstrong Gene Hackman. He also expounds on the translation of William Blatty's horror novel into cinematic terms, his desire to remain flexible during shooting, his feelings about Cruising and Sorceror, and more.
