We are honored to present our latest conversation in our Actor’s Spotlight series. With this episode, Frank and Raymond Benson have a conversation with poet and actor Harry Northup who is living film history. Harry was featured in Martin Scorsese’s first six films WHO’S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR, BOXCAR BERTHA, MEAN STREETS, ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE, TAXI DRIVER, and NEW YORK NEW YORK. Harry was also a frequent collaborator with maverick filmmakers Jonathan Demme and Jonathan Kaplan. Harry has been featured in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, TOM HORN, and OVER THE EDGE amongst many others. Harry recounts his very rich filmography, along with stories of working with actors Harvey Keitel, Richard Farnsworth, Billy Green Bush, Peter Boyle, and Steve McQueen.
Podcasting Them Softly is proud to present the first installment of EDITOR’S SUITE, with two-time Oscar nominee Craig McKay (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, REDS). Over the last 30 years, Craig has put his distinct editorial stamp on the feature film landscape, with credits that include SOMETHING WILD, MAD DOG AND GLORY, SIN NOMBRE, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS, PHILADELPHIA, THE CONSPIRATOR, COP LAND, and many, many more. Having worked with some of cinema’s best director’s, he’s created a powerful body of work that time and time again has represented the very best that editing has to offer, and it was an absolute honor to get a chance to speak with him about his tremendous career. We hope you enjoy this informative and passionate discussion!
