Roger Ebert on "The Great Movies"

August 17, 2003

Film critic Roger Ebert visited Madison, Wisconsin for the Wisconsin Film Festival. He came into our studios and talked with Jim Fleming about some of the exciting new work he’d seen and about what makes a great movie. Ebert’s written a book called “The Great Movies” in which he describes 100 films he thinks make the cut. Among them is Richard Lester’s film of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night.”  Ebert tells Jim why that film is so important.
