Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

Back in the 1970s, Peter Medak directed Peter Sellers in "Ghost in the Noonday Sun."  The movie never got a theatrical release, arriving years later on videotape and then DVD.  Now though, Medak has put together a documentary on his experiences shooting "Ghost" and he's here to tell us all about it.
