What You're About To See

One of the most entertaining things on TV isn't exactly a show. Or maybe it is. It's the intros on the Fox Movie Channel, part of Fox Legacy.

These interstitial bits are hosted by Tom Rothman, CEO at Fox. He tells surprisingly complex stories about how various Fox films, from All About Eve to Patton to Speed, got made.

Rothman is not a professional in front of the camera, but he's able to communicate the enthusiasm he feels for movies, and impart a fair amount of inside knowledge. I've often seen the movie he's introducing, but I'll tune in just to hear the stories he has to tell. (He also comes back when the film is over.)
