This morning Farren Nehme (@selfstyledsiren) posted a portion of this Lee Remick interview. It was to promote Mistral’s Daughter, a 1984 TV miniseries. The Nebraska-based interviewer (KOLN/KGIN-TV) asks horrific questions while exuding a revoltingly unctuous manner. Why did they cast you and Jack Lemmon for Days of Wine and Roses instead of Piper Laurie and Cliff Robertson, who did an excellent job in the TV version? Elia Kazan‘s Wild River was a flop. With Richard Burton dead, do you think his excessive drinking was a factor?
