On Saturday, August 22 at 1:00 p.m., KETC/Channel 9 pays tribute to Child with the broadcast of Julia Child Memories: Bon Appetit!, a two-hour retrospective featuring three of the most memorable episodes from The French Chef: Bouillabaisse à la Marseillaise, To Roast a Chicken and The Omelette Show.
Because the broadcast coincides with the theatrical release of the film comedy Julie & Julia, starring Meryl Streep as Child, the program includes commentary from Streep and author Julie Powell, who wrote the book on which the film is based. Also included are Nora Ephron, the writer/director of Julie & Julia; chef Gordon Hamersley of Hamersley’s Bistro; Russell Morash, producer/director of The French Chef; Sara Moulton, executive chef of Gourmet Magazine; fellow TV chef Jacques Pepin; chef Lydia Shire of Locke-Ober; actor Stanley Tucci; and chef Jasper White of Summer Shack.
Here comes a real blast from the past. Two very rare video interviews from 1993 and 1997. One was taped around the time that “The House of the Spirits” was promoted, the second comes from a promotional interview for “Marvin’s Room”. Captures from these have been added to the Image Library as well. Many thanks to Tina for the heads-up! Enjoy these great finds!
After claiming last week’s second spot at the American box office, earning a whopping $20 milion, “Julie & Julia” is still doing fine in theaters this week, according to the New York Times’ box office chart: “The inexpensive dramatic comedy “Julie & Julia” (Sony) was fourth with an estimated $12.4 million and a new cumulative total of $43.7 million.”
Remaining scans from 2009 have been added to the Image Library, some brand new ones on “Julie & Julia”, including “Streep’s Latest Dish” from Entertainment Weekly, then a few articles on her 60th birthday and a couple more on “Doubt” from this February. Credit goes to the following contributors, in hope that no one’s got forgotton – Alvaro, Tina, Enchanting Amy and Nadine. Thanks a lot! Enjoy the new scans.

On August 07, Meryl and Nora Ephron have also attended the Charlie Rose Show to promote “Julie & Julia”, clips and caps of her appearance will follow. And speaking of which, I was unable so far to get Meryl’s appearance on the Colbert Report on August 06, so if anyone’s taped it or is able to help me getting it on the website, please drop me a line. Thanks!
