The New Hollywood is a podcast interview show. Host Brian Flaherty interviews the Actors, Directors, Writers and Musicians who are breaking the rules and carving out a new path for others to follow, not unlike the great auteurs of the 70’s.
Todays guest is former Executive Vice President at Roger Corman’s New World Pictures and later Head of Production at Orion Pictures, Barbara Boyle. I haven’t named episodes before but if i were to name this one it would be called The Art Of The Deal because it really sums up what Barbara is all about. As she says, “what interested Roger Corman was production, what interested me was distribution, television libraries, the deal”. She tells a few great stories about Ron Howard and John Sayles, but mostly she talks about being one of the first women lawyers and then executives in the film business and what a challenge that was. All that On The New Hollywood Podcast.
