RISA SHUMAN TALKS ABOUT THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL, WILLIAM WYLER, AND SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGES IN THE MOVIES
Risa Shuman is the Senior Producer of Saturday Night at the Movies on TVOntario. She graduated in 1973 from York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in film. Shuman has worked at Saturday Night at the Movies for almost 28 years. She joins us again this month to share her thoughts on film.
Gerry McCarthy: Saturday Night at The Movies recently screened Friendly Persuasion with Gary Cooper, Dorothy McGuire, and Tony Perkins. The movie addressed some serious themes. For example, religious convictions conflicting with the call to arms. But the director William Wyler seems to give the movie a storybook flavour. There was a sweetness about the film. What are your thoughts?
