FXF0304 ROBERT-BENTON : TOM FLEISCHMAN, BOB REITANO AND MICHAEL JACOBI

A soft-spoken, young writer from Texas, Robert Benton broke onto the feature film scene with his debut screenplay, Bonnie and Clyde for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. Developing into a writer/director, he won Oscars for Kramer vs Kramer and Places in the Heart. Here, we gather with collaborators, re-recording mixer, Tom Fleischman, picture editor, Bob Reitano and ADR Supervisor, Michael Jacobi, describe the New York scene that gave birth to Robert Benton's best collaborations and their part in creating films like Places In The Heart and Billy Bathgate.
