This interview may, to some, seem overly long. In it, Susan Morrison of the New Yorker, talks to Steve Martin about pretty well his whole life (till now). It's both funny and serious at the same time. It does not have to viewed at one sitting. http://www.newyorker.com/online/video/festival/2007/MartinMorrison

I found the intro to be overly long and gave up before I even saw Steve Martin... la la la But then that could be because the video was seriously flawed. The sound kept cutting in and out. (Is it just MY computer and/or browser?)

It put me in mind of my university film festival's screening of "The Sand Pebbles" when the sound was not in sync and there was a fast dialogue section during which every time Steve McQueen was seen speaking, the woman's (Candice Bergen???) voice was heard and every time she was seen speaking, McQueen's voice was heard. This was years ago... I've not remembered and/or had the nerve to watch "The Sand Pebbles" again...

The video quality was ok for me. I didn't notice the intro being that long. Steve Martin was good, although he tended to interrupt the interviewer a bit too often for my taste. But maybe she was tending to go on too long with her questions ...

They played some screamingly funny clips; they let them run start to finish too. Some were new for me, or at least I didn't recall seeing them before. But even the familiar ones still made me laugh out loud.

I have gone back to try again. It looks like the problem is with our connection. I got through half of the interview before the sound started cutting in and out again. Very annoying... I'll try watching the other half later. (So much for having highspeed internet la la la stomp )

I must say that the interviewer is kind of driving me crazy - she interrupts Martin almost as much as Martin interrupts her at the end of her questions - but so far it's well worth seeing.
