Really incredible, hilarious, bizarre awkward stuff.

 

Orson Welles and -

 

Muppets

Burt Reynolds

Angie Dickinson

Cigars

Terrible guest questions

 

 

He directed the pilot too - some really interesting camera moves and throws to commercial.

 

All in all though, this is a fascinating document.  The interview with Reynolds is really quite good.  A shame this never went to air (of course it would have been a disaster, but still).

I was thinking of him a few weeks ago while watching an episode of Better Call Saul, where the opening sequence was a long, single cam shot of a border crossing. It reminded me of Touch of Evil, directed by....Orson Welles.

That is fabulously of its time. The '70s has become a different planet, just like the '40s seemed to be when I was a teenager in the '70s.

Wow.  He should have asked Welles to direct Cannonball Run.
