Description

Barry Norman reflects : When Martin Scorsese directed ‘Cape Fear’ I spent months trying to arrange an interview with him. Eventually the dragon lady who guards him in his New York office gave the go-ahead. “But you have one hour,” she said. “That’s all.” I said an hour was fine and so we met. It was the easiest interview I’ve ever done. Scorsese is a true movie nut – you just wind him up, tell him you’re not remotely interested in his personal life, just his movies and let him go. That’s how it was that day. After a riveting hour the dragon lady looked in. “Marty, there’s a call for you.” “No, no,” he said, “it’s okay.” She left and he and I talked on for the best part of another hour. But that’s Scorsese - when an American magazine once asked him to name the ten best, most influential films he had ever seen the reporter had to stop him when he got to 125. True story - I know because Scorsese told me so.
