Today on Think: ‘Why Acting Matters’ With the Great Film Historian David Thomson
by Jerome Weeks 24 Feb 2015

51G2PCzUDgLThis afternoon, during the second hour of Think, the KERA radio talk show, host Krys Boyd talks with famed film critic-historian David Thomson about his latest book, Why Acting Matters. Witty and incredibly knowledgeable, Thomson is the highly-regarded author of A Biographical Dictionary of Film, biographies of directors David O. Selznick and Orson Welles, The Big Screen and a dozen other books on such stars as Bette Davis, Nicole Kidman and Humphrey Bogart. He’s been a frequent contributor to The New Republic, and he’s also well-versed in stage performance, which is why he can bring in the history of Method acting and the influence of Laurence Olivier and Elia Kazan.

Tune in at 1 p.m. to hear Thomson answer the question, why acting matters.
