Excellent Look at the Legend
Robert Mitchum: The Reluctant Star (1991)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Polly Bergen, Anthony Caruso, Edward Dmytryk, Jane Greer, Deborah Kerr, Ali Mac Graw, Sarah Miles and Sydney Pollack are jointed by Robert Mitchum himself to discuss the actor on and off the screen.

At just a hour there's certainly nothing ground-breaking here but what makes this film (and the series) so special is that we've got so many legends on hand and of course most of them are no longer with us. This series is great because we get to see these legends talk about Mitchum but then we have the man himself talking about his early life, how he got into the movies and he also goes into detail about some of the people he worked with as well as the movies he made.

If you're a fan of Mitchum then you'll certainly want to watch this as the interviews are really great and there's no question that the star is a lot more open here than in the now notorious Turner Classic Movies interview. Mitchum talks about his early life, his most famous movies and even his now legendary arrest.
