Touched by his performance as a blind former college professor in Curtis Hanson‘s In Her Shoes, I interviewed the 90 year-old Norman Lloyd at his Brentwood home a couple of years ago. The producer-actor is still going strong today (healthy, plays tennis, gets around town in a Jaguar) and currently the subject of career retrospective doc, Who Is Norman Lloyd?, which opened yesterday at Manhattan’s Film Forum.
Norman Lloyd in his Brentwood home — Tuesday, 9.27.05, 5:45 pm.
I haven’t seen Matthew Sussman‘s doc yet, but presumably a Los Angeles screening or booking is in the cards.
Here’s Matt Zoller Seitz‘s N.Y. Times review. Here’s a a Leonard Lopate interview on NYPR, John Anderson‘s 11.20 Village Voice profile, and Stu van Airsdale‘s recent Reeler piece. Here’s my own interview piece from two years ago.
Lloyd will drop by the Film Forum on Monday, 11.26 at 8:15 pm for a q & a session with Bruce Goldstein and John Martello, exec director of The Players. Surprise guests may show.
