Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson discusses The French Connection II with its director John Frankenheimer. The two talk about the differences between The French Connection II and its prequel, and how it stands on its own merits, and should be enjoyable even to those who haven't seen the first film. Frankenheimer describes at length working with special effects man Logan Frazee and the talents of legendary actor Gene Hackman.
Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)
These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
