Episode Info

Writer-director George Stevens Jr. remembers his dad in "George Stevens: A Filmmaker's Journey," a superb 1984 portrait of the Oscar-winning director of "A Place in the Sun" and "Giant." Although a labor of love, Stevens doesn't fawn over his brilliant father, who's recalled here by a steady parade of actors, fellow directors, technicians and producers. Clips from many Stevens films are also included, as is color footage from his WWII tour of duty with the Army Signal Corps film unit.
