A Conversation with Richard Dreyfuss
When he was twelve years old, Richard Dreyfuss had four ambitions – to be an actor, to become a movie star, to go into politics and to become a history teacher. For the past fifty years, he’s been acting in theater and films. His credits include,"Jaws," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "Mr. Holland’s Opus," and "The Goodbye Girl," for which he won an Oscar. Now he’s closing in on the rest of his goals. He’s launched an initiative to encourage a civics curriculum in public schools. And, he’s just made his debut at the Kennedy Center, narrating a piece written for the National Symphony Orchestra to mark the fiftieth anniversary of JFK's inauguration.
