Stanley Kramer’s 35 films, which were responsible for 16 Academy Awards through 85 Oscar nominations, include acclaimed classics such as Death of a Salesman (1952), The Wild One (1954), The Defiant Ones (1958), Ship of Fools (1965), and Bless the Beasts and Children (1971).

In this episode, we’ll share with you a 1968 interview with Kramer in San Francisco for the opening of perhaps one of his best-known films, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), a comedic drama that tackles the emotions of interracial marriage, which was still illegal in 17 states when the movie premiered.
