TCM, Cavett corral Brooks

TV host returns to tube for one-hour interview with helmer

Dick Cavett, whose latenight ABC talkshow from 1969-72 featured interviews with some of the most famous people in the world, is back on Turner Classic Movies, with Mel Brooks on the hot seat for a one-hour Q&A.

Interview, to run in primetime on Sept. 7, will precede two Brooks-directed movies, “The Producers” and “Spaceballs.”

TCM also has bought the rights to eight episodes of the original Cavett show in which he did one-on-ones with Robert Mitchum, Bette Davis, Ingmar Bergman, Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, Groucho Marx and Katharine Hepburn (two separate sessions).

These interviews will run throughout early September and, as with the Brooks interview, will be followed by two or three movies associated with the subject. For Mitchum, the movies will be “Night of the Hunter,” “Cape Fear” and “Out of the Past.”
