Top 3 Actor-Director Collaborations (52:58)
As with any business, a strong partnership can go a long way in making a robust and sought-after product. The same is very much true for film as we’ve seen many actor-director duos over the years, some offering up the best films of all-time. So, it made this excersice slightly cumbersome, but with that much rich material to sift through it also made it quite enjoyable to talk about. That said, what would be your Top 3?
