Filmmaker Interview with Producer Julian Schlossberg


See behind-the-scenes footage of producer Julian Schlossberg interviewing director Mike Nichols. Schlossberg speaks about Nichols’ work and  great number of successes and shares clips of Nichols and May sketches in this filmmaker interview.

“He was very honest and let himself be captured,” says Schlossberg.

At the time, Schlossberg didn’t know the interview would become part of the documentary Mike Nichols: An American Master. The former host of Julian Schlossberg’s Movie Talk on WOR, Schlossberg had met Nichols years before and became the representative of the archives of the comedy duo Nichols and May.

Schlossberg is the producer of of two other American Masters films — Nichols & May: Take Two and The Lives of Lilian Hellman.
