With last night's news of the passing of one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century, if writer/director Arthur Laurents is remembered a thousand years from new for only penning the books for WEST SIDE STORY and GYPSY, that alone would stand as a testament to the theatrical legacy he leaves behind. In this special digital remembrance of his life and legacy, we take a look back at all the plays, musicals and films that he had a hand in - WEST SIDE STORY and GYPSY, both revived in the 21st century under his direction, to ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES and NICK & NORA on Broadway; HOME OF THE BRAVE, THE SNAKE PIT, Hitchcock's ROPE, THE WAY WE WERE and THE TURNING POINT in Hollywood - as well as the countless hours of interviews and talks that he gave over the course of his long and storied career. As he wrote for Rose in GYPSY, "You either got it or you ain't," and, boy, oh boy, did Arthur have it - in spades.

Today we are talking to a notable presence on Broadway and in Hollywood who has appeared in countless celebrated entities - ranging from her Tony Award-winning work in BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE and in the original cast of Harold Pinter's BETRAYAL on Broadway along with dozens of other credits; to starring in feature films like THE PRINCE OF TIDES with Barbra Streisand, and, perhaps most famously the MEET THE FOCKERS franchise; to her newest star turn to date, that of featured player in the hit original Gershwin revue NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT - the elegant and accomplished Blythe Danner. Discussing various roles in a number of wide-ranging projects that she has taken on over the course of her idiosyncratic career thus far - such as memorable turns in four Woody Allen films (HUSBANDS & WIVES, ALICE, CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS and ANOTHER WOMAN) and the classic movie musical adaptation of 1776 all the way to her most recent work with Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller and the Fockers clan in the FOCKERS films as well as THE LUCKY ONE with Zac Efron, DETACHMENT with Adrien Brody, TV pilots and much more. Additionally, Danner shares memories of appearing in the 2001 revival of Stephen Sondheim & James Goldman's FOLLIES, as well as appearing on WILL & GRACE with recent InDepth InterView participant Eric McCormack. Most importantly, she offers her thoughts on NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT as an entertainment experience, Gershwin music in general, her co-stars Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara, choreographer and director Kathleen Marshall as well as what drew her to the hit revue in the first place. All of that, working on one of 2012's most memorable films, DETACHMENT, collaborating with Ryan Murphy and Jonathan Groff on the daring (if ultimately unsuccessful) pilot for PRETTY/HANDSOME, thoughts on her daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow's Emmy-winning work on Glee and much, much more awaits in this career-spanning conversation!
