Rob ReinerStreaming Video - 2010
The people who made America laugh were in and out of my house, says actor-director Rob Reiner of his childhood milieu, linking it with his ongoing compulsion to entertain. This program features revealing commentary from the creator of Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, and other cinematic gems. Explaining why his second directing job proved more intimidating than his first, Reiner emphasizes the basic formula of a satisfying movie-great script plus great cast-and sums up challenges connected with A Few Good Men and The American President. He also demystifies aspects of Stand by Me, including how he filmed the train scene and elicited such convincing emotion from his young actors.
