Wow, I’m at the Prince Theater in Center City Philadelphia on Chestnut Street and getting ready to interview Eva Marie Saint, an early product of the Actors Studio! She was one of the first to be recognized as a “real ” actress. That was after her Oscar winning role in her very first film “On The Waterfront”, with Marlon Brando. This night was a screening of the classic Alfred Hitchcock suspense thriller “North By Northwest.” Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint starred in 1959. Miss Saint and the fab film host of TCM, Ben Mankiewicz, are touring cities to promote the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood next month. The “Road To Hollywood” stopped in Philadelphia. Lucky me!
Listen to my candid and revealing interview with Eva Marie Saint and Ben Mankiewicz. It was my pleasure.
