Fascinated with comic books as a boy, Chris Columbus set his sights on working for Marvel or DC-until he realized that making movies provided the same thrill, only more so. This program allows viewers to sit down with the director and hear his recollections of breaking into Hollywood, making hit films, and working with high-caliber talent. Columbus talks about his early screenwriting efforts and being hired by John Hughes to direct a project no studio seemed to want-Home Alone. Describing the casting process for that movie, Columbus goes on to discuss working with Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire, lobbying to direct the first Harry Potter film, and being fired by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.
