In this illuminating video, Brian De Palma and Martin Scorsese talk about they got into filmmaking during an interview on the Dick Cavett show.
De Palma and Scorsese represent two of some of the most influential filmmakers to ever ply their trade, particularly during the New Hollywood era.
Dick Cavett has been nominated for eleven Emmy awards (most recently in 2012 for the HBO special ‘Mel Brooks and Dick Cavett Together Again’) and has won three. Cavett’s career has spanned five decades, serving as a shining beacon of the television interview format.
His most recent television successes were the September 2014 PBS special ‘Dick Cavett’s Watergate,’ followed by the April 2015 special ‘Dick Cavett’s Vietnam.’
