Ted Talley: The Silence of the Lambs (Episode #208)

KQED 9: Sun, Jan 6, 2013 -- 12:30 AM

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ted Tally gives a provocative look at the adaptation and production of the Oscar-winning film The Silence Of The Lambs. Tally covers it all: working with director Jonathan Demme, anticipating Jodie Foster's Oscar win, the delicious changed ending for the world's most famous cannibal, Hannibal Lecter, and more. Recently listed on the Library of Congress' National Film Registry as a "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" film, The Silence Of The Lambs is guaranteed to be lauded for decades to come. Thomas Ward's haunting short film In The Middle follows.
