Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine

Sir Michael Caine and Sir Kenneth Branagh visited The Bob Edwards Show (interviewed from the New York studios) in 2007 to promote their new film, Sleuth, a re-imagining of the 1972 film written by Anthony Shaffer and based on his 1970 Tony Award-winning play. This film, written by Nobel Prize for Literature honoree Harold Pinter, starred Jude Law and Michael Caine, directed by Kenneth Branagh.

From the introduction:

The movie “Sleuth” was directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Jude Law and Michael Caine. Branagh and Caine are my guests today. We’ll talk about “Sleuth” and other highlights from their two very distinguished careers. Caine has been at it for more than fifty years and has two Oscars. Branagh has Oscar nominations as an actor, director and a writer.

This interview was produced by Cristy Meiners, who mentioned on the last program that this was one of her favorite productions. The laughter from the other end of the headsets is infectious, possibly even more so in the unproduced raw interview which is part of the archives. And the program includes another Cristy Meiners production, Frank Kelly who accompanies Bob on a tour of the National Gallery’s Edward Hopper exhibit. Script/roadmap included (and no, I have no idea why the roadmap was hand-dated a year before the program date; October 13th of 2006 had Terry Gilliam and Andy Borowitz as guests).
