Ten O'Clock News; Mime Marcel Marceau
Interview with mime Marcel Marceau. In the interview he describes the art and discipline of mime, especially as part of the theater rather than film. He explains how when he first came to America there were no mimes, and then there was a mime-craze in the 1970s. He describes his feelings about being one of the most iconic mimes. He explains how mime can cross international, racial, language, and other boundaries. He recounts the events of his current visit to Boston. He discusses his family and personal life. He explains the balance of his show, which is broken up into two parts: Bip, the man struggling against the world, and Pantomimes of Style. They discuss his other artistic pursuits while shooting cutaways.
