Tyrone Power and Edward R. Murrow
31 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With only about 11 months to live, Tyrone Power was interviewed by Edward R. Murrow in his New York apartment around Christmas 1957. At the time, he was planning on going on a very ambitious tour of a play, Back to Methuselah, which would then end up in New York. Actually, the tour ended about 12 weeks later, the play opened and closed on Broadway, and Power eventually went to Spain to do "Solomon and Sheba" during which he died.

The interview is okay, Power very much using his screen persona. His appearance on What's My Line is much more telling - there he's himself

  • shy, soft-spoken and humble. At the time of the interview, he was
single - he would get married five months later, and when he died, his wife was pregnant with their son.

Especially interesting because we know what's going to happen and sad at the same time.
