MUSEUM OF TELEVISION & RADIO'S 10TH ANNUAL TELEVISION FESTIVAL IN LOS ANGELES, THE: AN EVENING WITH MARY TYLER MOORE {LONG VERSION}

Summary

One in a series of evenings and special screenings presented as part of The Museum of Television & Radio's 10th Annual Television Festival in Los Angeles. Presented with, and held at, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the festival celebrates the excellence and diversity of American television and is dedicated to television's creative community. This seminar honors actress Mary Tyler Moore. Robert M. Batscha, president of The Museum of Television & Radio, begins by providing some background on the festival. He then welcomes Moore, who greets the audience. A compilation of clips of the actress's television work is screened next, including scenes from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show." After the screening, Batscha invites the audience to ask questions. In the course of answering, Moore discusses the following topics, among others: her start in acting; her joy at working on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show"; her favorite episodes from each of these programs; the moment at which she realized that "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was something special; her favorite current comediennes; her first comedy work; the experience of working with Ed Asner; the pitfalls of being typecast as a situation-comedy actress; her dramatic role in the film "Ordinary People"; her current activities; the actress's education; and her attitude toward her work.
