Host Elvis Mitchell sits down with actor Richard Gere. They talk about two primary influences to the way the Gere acts: music and gymnastics. Gere talks about blues music in particular, and the natural rhythms in that style which he uses in the rhythms of his performances. He believes that all actors have an inherent musicality within them upon which to frame a performance. He also discusses what he believes are movies that have that blues rhythm in its pacing and storytelling. He equates rhythm with physical space and framing in movie making, with an actor going in and out of that frame set for him. He concludes with talking about what drew him to certain actors from the golden age of movies. With the women, it was who he considered the great beauties. With the men, it was the ability to be within the moment without looking like they were acting. Written by Huggo

Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence (Richard Gere) (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another winning episode in the series this time with Richard Gere talking about the movies and actors who influenced him. This is certainly one of the best in the series so far so it's a shame that this one just ran half an hour. Gere shows a lot of knowledge when it comes to movies but he talks about them in a rather unique but refreshing way. Gere says that he's mainly influenced by music and he looks for "blues" in terms of films and performances. Hud and Cool Hand Luke fit this type of film and performance for him and he has some rather interesting comments towards the "good-hearted" nature of Hud. I've never heard the character called that and Gere makes some interesting observations about him. Gary Cooper, John Wayne, Henry Fonda and even Julie Andrews are discussed at nice range as well.
