George Cukor: The Interview by Richard Schickel

In 1973, legendary film critic and historian Richard Schickel and a documentary crew sat down with Academy Award-winning director George Cukor at his Hollywood home. It was a rare opportunity to speak with the man credited with coaxing some of the greatest performances from some of the greatest performers of all time - Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, W.C. Fields, Judy Garland, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, James Mason, Spencer Tracy, just to name. Here, in this digital short, Schickel recounts what the maker of Adam’s Rib, David Copperfield, The Philadelphia Story, and other classics had to say.
