Kenneth Turan: "Not to be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film"
Los Angeles Times and NPR movie critic Kenneth Turan remembers when he first got hooked on the movies: as a kid growing up in a religious household in Brooklyn, he wasn’t allowed to go to the theater on Saturdays. So he watched movies on television for hours thanks to a program called, “Million Dollar Movie.” Turan was captivated by classic Hollywood features like “Kiss Me Deadly” and “I am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang,” and romances like “All About Eve.” His early love for these classics eventually led to a long career as a film critic. Diane talks with Kenneth Turan about his all-time favorite movies, from the silent era to modern times.
