145: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974) with Ted Kotcheff

This week, Becky sits down with filmmaker, producer, poet, and writer Ted Kotcheff to discuss his iconic 1974 film, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. You may not have heard his name, but you’ve certainly seen his movies. Along with his two Cannes Classic films Duddy Kravitz and Wake in Fright, he’s responsible for the original Fun with Dick and Jane, Rambo: First Blood, Weekend at Bernies, and over 263 episodes of Law and Order: SVU. Needless to say, he’s got a lot of stories and he tells them incredibly well.

So join us as we talk about having Mordecai Richler as a best friend, the realities of making movies in Canada in the 60’s and 70’s, casting Richard Dreyfuss, and the enduring appeal of the fabulous Micheline Lanctôt.

SEE DUDDY KRAVITZ. IT IS GREAT. And you can do so on iTunes.
