Once again, I’ve digged deep down the archives to bring some rare finds to Simply Streep. The highlight of this post is probably Meryl’s first television interview in 1979 to promote “Kramer vs. Kramer”. Bits from this interview were featured on the Today Show, now a seven-minute version has been added to the video archive. Also new is footage from the Mann’s Chinese Theatre Handprints ceremony, the premieres for “The River Wild” and “The Bridges of Madison County” and a newly discovered press junket interview for “Music of the Heart”. Click the previews for all new clips and scroll down for screencaptures.

    thank you so much for all the material. the Kramer vs Kramer interview has a no audio moment. can you fix it? Because it is really a great interview and only an excerpt of it was known so far..

    So great, thanks for posting! The Kramer interview really is a highlight. It’s fascinating to see the similarities and differences in her way of speaking now and then, Meryl was probably right when she said that we have the older person that we are going to be already in us.
