In a career spanning seven decades Studs, he showed an uncanny ability to elicit fascinating stories from a who’s-who of celebrities, but it was his extraordinary interviews with ordinary people that he is best remembered.

  2. Studs Terkel interviews Buster Keaton (1960)

    Studs Terkel had the privilege of speaking with Keaton in 1960, only six years before Keaton passed away from lung cancer. Their conversation touches on the art of making a silent film and answers such important questions as how many subtitles should a silent movie have, who should you never throw a pie at, and why does Buster never smile. He also discusses the influence of Charlie Chaplin on film and the virtues of a live audience.
