Dick Cavett‘s legendary career stretched for decades, and the show bearing his name welcomed countless celebrities and high profile guests, from Katharine Hepburn to Orson Wells and Marlon Brando. Now he is looking back on the highlights in a new book, Talk Show: Confrontations, Pointed Commentary and Off Screen Secrets.

He talks to Matt Frei about his most memorable interviews and why he did not like the label “intellectual”.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Strange Random Talkshow Quote:

“In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he’d have a talk show.” – Timothy Leary (American Psychologist and Author who was a leading advocate for the use of LSD and other psychoactive drugs, 1920-1996)
