The main reason I got this was because of the 2-part Katharine Hepburn interview and also the Bette Davis interview. I've watched some of the others.. Hitchcock and Fred Astaire.. but REALLY, kids, these are truly FASCINATING to watch. If you know anything about Katharine Hepburn, believe you me, you won't be able to take your eyes off her. Also, kind of funny when Cavett asks Miss Davis how she lost her virginity! Classic!

I remember as a teenager watching The Dick Cavett show and some of these interviews specifically. It was fun to watch them again as an adult, so many years later. The one interview that really surprised me was Bette Davis. I'd heard so many stories about her being such a ruthless personality but when I watched her interview in this dvd, I found her to be very entertaining and enjoyed that particular interview the most. And the Hollywood legends, who are now dead, I am happy that we have these Dick Cavett memories. And, I should say, I wish that Dick Cavett would do some more , up to date, interviews as he is the best! His was a real conversation, not just a 10minute plug.
