Trawling through the YOU TUBE universe I found this surprising little gem of a clip featuring the late, great Sir Alec Guinness. Promoting his then recent book in the early eighties, Sir Alec, who, in his life, gave very few interviews, actually appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN! To find that he had appeared on the show surprised and intrigued me-I’m so used to serious interviews with the late actor, and in this clip he seemed to have a lot of fun anecdote wise with a seemingly equally enthused Letterman-for a change the king of US chat seemed to have actually have read the actors autobiographical book being promoted-most of the time you can see that he is just winging it to the sometimes annoyance of his guests!!
Though he doesn’t talk about STAR WARS, anything involving Sir Alec is always worth watching.
