No, not the movie musical that’s looking increasingly less likely to satisfy the Weinstein brothers’ Oscar hopes. This is from 1982, when the original musical was playing on Broadway, starring the late Raul Julia as the Italian director going through a mid-life crisis. One of the hosts of this local New York TV show is Jack Cafferty, whom you probably recognize as Wolf Blitzer’s comedy partner on CNN.
