Morgan Neville returns to the podcast for his 4th visit. He was on Episode 146 discussing “20 Feet From Stardom”, Episode 289 discussing “Best of Enemies: Buckley Vs. Vidal”, and Episode 357 discussing “The Music of Strangers”. Neville is back with two new projects that have recently come out roughly around the same time.
The first project we discuss is “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” which is a documentary exploring the life of the beloved children’s television host Fred Rogers. The film has been nominated for many awards and is currently available for streaming on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital platforms.
We also discuss Morgan’s other project, the Netflix ‘making of’ documentary, “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead”, which is about the story behind Orson Welles’ last movie, unfinished until recently, “The Other Side of the Wind”. Among those participating in the documentary past & present are Peter Bogdanovich, Rich Little, Dennis Hopper, Frank Marshall and upcoming Filmwax Radio guest Joseph McBride. “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead” and “The Other Side of the Wind” are both currently available on Netflix.
