Mike Nichols - The Famous Laugh of Mike Nichols

Director and comedian Mike Nichols was famous for his hearty laugh, which often turned into tears, and is why he always kept a handkerchief nearby. In Mike Nichols: An American Master, theater and film stars who worked with Nichols, including Alec Baldwin (Working Girl), playwright Neil Simon, Matthew Broderick (Biloxi Blues), Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) and Frank Langella (Hurlyburly) recall Nichols’ humor and laughter, which you can witness in this excerpt.
