Film producer Walter Mirisch and Matthew Bernstein, Professor and Chair of the Department of Film Studies, talk about Mirisch's career in the film business. Author of "I Thought We Were Making Movies, Not History," Mirisch produced, in whole or in part, more than one hundred films. The many honors bestowed on the Mirisch Company, an independent filmmaking organization which he founded in 1957 with his late brothers Marvin and Harold, include three Oscars for best picture -- "The Apartment" (1960), "West Side Story" (1961), and "In the Heat of the Night" (1967).
