00:24:53 GREAT WRITERS PROFILE: THOMAS HARRIS /SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, PART I
Mark Sevi

“Silence of the Lambs” remains a tour de force both literary and film.

Mark covers a wide range of topics on this movie including the writers (Thomas Harris (book) and Ted Tally (movie)) and why this masterpiece won five major Oscars, only one of three films to do this.
