Today's Show: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli

3:30pm EST - Film critic Mark Griffin joins us to talk about his latest book, A Hundred or More Hidden Things: the Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli, which follows the life of the Oscar winning director of such classics as Meet Me in St. Louis and Gigi, the husband (for a while) of Judy Garland and the father of Liza Minnelli -- and a man of much mystery. Flamboyant and long-rumored to be gay, several men confirm Minnelli was in fact openly so, yet Minnelli married four times. This biography draws on more than 100 interviews with such icons as Kirk Douglas, Angela Lansbury, Lauren Bacall, Tony Curtis, and George Hamilton.
