Elvis and his new gig

Elvis and his new gig

I watched the premiere of Elvis Mitchell’s new Turner Classic Movies show, Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence. Elvis is a great interviewer, one of the best, especially in front of a live audience. It always feels like no film festival or conference would be complete without his skills as a moderator. He knows how to ease through a conversation with a wide array of film greats, and this skill has been captured in various incarnations, and on various networks. The show’s premiere included a great conversation with the late Sydney Pollack. Future installments will include Bill Murray, Laurence Fishburne, and Quentin Tarantino. Book-ending the interviews, TCM will air classic films that inspired the week’s guests. It looks like a strong combination.
