Today on Think: ‘Why Acting Matters’ With the Great Film Historian David Thomson

by Jerome Weeks 24 Feb 2015 10:27 AM

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.
