Person Place Thing Episode 71: John Turturro

Apr 17, 2014

Many of us got to like him in Do the Right Thing and got to like him even more as he became part of the rep company of Spike Lee then of the Coen Brothers. And that represents just a few of his more than 60 films. His latest is Fading Gigolo: he wrote it, he directs it, he acts in it along with some terrific colleagues, including Woody Allen. It dramatizes that in New York surprising things occur behind modest facades – of buildings, of people. And it’s very funny.

  • PERSON: book dealer Herb Weitz
  • PLACE: Naples historic center
  • THING: the Brooklyn Bridge
