Afterimage is a new video interview project hosted by Now & Then editorial producer David Kurlander. The show focuses on pieces of archival media–narrative films, memos, news clips, paintings, songs–by a recently-departed figure who helped to shape the second half of the 20th century.
In this third episode, David interviews actor Michael York about his role opposite Angela Lansbury (1925-2022) in the 1970 dark comedy Something for Everyone. York breaks down the politics, craft, and chemistry that made the film – and his pairing with Lansbury – such a compelling work.
