Steve Martin & Carl Reiner Films – Journey Details

“Whenever I start a film, I hear the child’s voice in my head singing, ‘We’re makin’ a movie, we’re makin’ a movie!’” – Carl Reiner to Steve Martin

Those of you who know me are well aware of my love of the early Steve Martin comedies with the legendary writer/director/actor Carl Reiner. Their comedic partnership, along with Monty Python, Christopher Guest and ensemble, SCTV, the Coen Brothers, Chris Elliott, and David Letterman, was instrumental in developing my sense of humor. A sense of humor that is a bit dry, a little stupid but smart in its delivery, and always points out the absurdity of being human.

For this Journey, we’ll spend two weeks covering the four feature-length films Carl Reiner and Steve Martin made together. Our discussion calls are scheduled for Wednesday, January 24 and Wednesday, January 31, both at 7pm est:
