Continuing our occasional series of interviews with Hollywood notables of the past featuring Deborah Kerr, one of the screen’s most enduring legends whose film career spanned almost fifty years and some 55 films and countless Television appearances. She was nominated six times for an Academy Award as well as a three-time winner of Best Actress from the New York Film Critics Circle. As much as she loved the Theatre, she only appeared on Broadway twice, but did considerable work on the London stage as early as 1937.
This interview, from The Martha Deane Program on WOR in New York, from February 25, 1969, coincides with her finishing work on an upcoming film, The Arrangement which was to be released later in the year. Although it’s not a promotion for the film (which was still being edited), she talks about working on it as well as giving a series of anecdotes on films throughout her career.
A rare interview with one of the great stars of film, whose work is still being discovered and enjoyed by audiences all over the world.
Here is that interview, as it was broadcast on February 25, 1969.
