We gave it an A-
Packed with ungettable guests, The Dick Cavett Show: Hollywood Greats, a 12-episode collection peaks with Cavett’s engrossing Hepburn chat, a set visit that turned into a three-hour interview. Astaire dances, Davis dishes, Mitchum drawls. Orson Welles recalls his meal with Hitler. EXTRAS Marlon Brando’s segment is a nonstarter, but off-camera excitement soon follows: As Cavett recalls in a documentary, the actor broke a paparazzo’s jaw on the way to their postshow dinner.
