  1. In response to 2:40 . . . Plummer makes a point that I haven't heard before. It seems intuitively true . . . and explains a couple of things that have puzzled me in the past. Props to him for that . . .

  2. Isn't classical acting the type of acting that's based on Stanislavki's theories, and Method Acting is the one that Lee Strasberg developed? That's what I've learned at school, and I know that Method Acting is based on Stanislavski's system, but the things that differ it from the system is Method Acting.

  3. This reminds of what Laurence Olivier said to Dustin Hoffman when Hoffman showed up during the shooting of The Marathon Man without a wink of sleep to get into the character; 'Have you ever tried acting?'. LOL!

  4. YOU'VE AGED BEAUTIFULLY.  I THINK THAT YOUR ACTING STYLE HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, BECAUSE OF THE WORK THE ACTORS YOU MAKE FUN OF.

  5. Plummer and his interviewer are so anti-Italian here that it is borderline prejudicial racism! Plummer was one step away from calling them "uneducated, swarthy, greasy dago wop scumbags." Wait until the Italian-American Society hears about this……

  6. Stanislavski didn't invent Method Acting (although it was based upon the earlier form of his teaching). Strasberg did. and even then, from what I hear, what many people believe to be method acting isn't really what Strasberg taught.

  7. Ꮢeɑⅾ this https://plus.google.com/112751744985035095555/posts/V1FsouS3byS/584775 if you want to reаⅼlү get notiсeɗ and be suϲcessful- it maɗe mү acting сareeг get momentum. Տoсiɑl meԁia is қeу аnd these guʏs ϲɑn get anyone notiсeⅾ bу the гight peopⅼe.

  8. Are there real actors watching these to take lessons of legends or are most ppl here watching because they are curious of how actors work their technique of acting?

  9. That's an interesting comment on Canadian acting, because there is such a notable difference between American and Canadian productions, apart from production values.

  10. 'Dear boy, why don't you just try acting? It's much easier", Laurence Olivier to Dustin Hoffman after Hoffman turned up from a night of jogging shattered, on set.
