NOT YOUR ORDINARY MOVIE BUFF, STEVE FRIEDMAN – DUBBED “MR. MOVIE” – HOSTS THE LONGEST CONTINUOUSLY RUNNING, ALL-MOVIE TALK SHOW IN THE COUNTRY WITH LISTENERS IN 38 STATES AND CANADA. HE BROADCASTS FROM 1210 AM IN PHILADELPHIA.
For nearly 25 years, Steve Friedman has fielded questions about every kind of film from different eras and genres, and he’s known for his encyclopedic recall of all that he’s seen – including the credits. Friedman also teaches writing and film criticism, writes scripts, and reviews films. He’s lectured at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and has appeared in several specials on A&E’s The History Channel. He’s even won an Emmy® Award.
Friedman also readily recalls details of the many Subaru vehicles he’s owned, beginning with a metallic blue Subaru XT Coupe in 1986. “It was gorgeous and looked just like a rocket,” he said. “In 1989, my wife and I bought brand-new matching XT Coupes on the same night. Michell’s was red, and mine was white with blue racing stripes.”
Today, as a production designer for film and television, Michell uses her Outback to haul everything from life-size mummy cases to wagonloads of aliens.
Steve Friedman talked about how his father influenced his passion for movies. “He loved to take us all to the drive-in. Even today, after all these years, I still associate warm feelings and security with going to the movies with my family.”
“We’re planning our first drive-in adventure with our 15-year old daughter, Darragh. The Majestic in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is the only drive-in theatre in the area. It’s nearly 100 miles away, but believe me, it will be worth it to recapture this wonderful experience with my own family.”
