Old Friends...New Friends: Episode 201

Air Date:
Guests: Lee Strasberg

Fred Rogers talks with acting instructor Lee Strasberg about his passion for performance and the challenges the come with teaching others.

Mr. Strasberg shares about his career working with notable performers, harnessing an individual's creativity, and his own personal family background.

Fred Rogers concludes: "Strasberg has obviously thought a lot about the roots of his life. He senses that his mother is always with him. And I wonder if most people don't share his feeling about wishing he could have known his father better. I know I do. And yet I wonder how many people ever do know their fathers well. And I wonder how many fathers ever do know their children well. But the ties that bind parents and children go far beyond all that can be known. We still make a difference in each other's lives. And what a great difference a great teacher can make in the lives of so many."
