Director Stanley Donen discusses his career as a director, which included films with such stars as Gene Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and Fred Astaire. Donen doesn't go into many great details about the making of his movies and at times he seems to be surprised about various stories going around the rumor mill on stuff such as SINGIN' IN THE RAIN and a disagreement he had with Hepburn on CHARADE. ROYAL WEDDING, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, MOVIE MOVIE and FUNNY FACE are also discussed. We get a few nice stories about Kelly and Grant as well as getting to hear how MGM originally hired Donen as a dancer plus him getting fired from Columbia. Again, Donen seems to have forgotten quite a bit of details over the years but it's still a pleasant interview.
