Bill Murray Interviewed by Host Elvis Mitchell

In one of the highlights of the interview, Bill Murray described watching old foreign films, like “A Romance of Happy Valley” (1919), when he lived in Paris, France. He talked about the brilliant work of many early filmmakers and the masterpieces they created by pioneering special effects.

“It’s hard to make a movie.” He said, “It’s hard to make a bad movie… It’s hard work. But if you’ve seen the great movies, you’ve got to feel that obligation… to get it right.”

“Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence” is a delightful treat for film enthusiasts. The personal, direct interviewing style of Mitchell creates an environment where celebrities can discuss their projects thoughtfully and in-depth, without feeling the need to promote the film or entertain an audience.
