I saw the first interview Tom Snyder did with him on the Tomorrow show. To say it was Something Else is a gross understatement. Even though I couldn’t recall a word he said, for decades I’ve wanted to see it again.
Last night, unable to sleep — tossing and turning sleepless is a horrible thing — it popped into my mind that I should see if that Sterling Hayden interview is anywhere online.
It turns out it’s available as audio-only on YouTube. That’s rather sad. Actually seeing Hayden is most of the show.
But, good news!, there are two more interviews with Snyder — as video — on YouTube. While not as eye-popping in my memory as the first interview, these are still something to see. It’s Sterling Hayden, for god’s sake. A one-of-a-kind this world no longer produces.
And this third one is weird because the Tomorrow show had a studio audience at the time:
An incredible man.
