Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton As Himself
series: American Masters
air date: 5/16/14 8:00 PM
This film showcases the life of the legendary writer, actor, risk-taker -- from his youth, to his co-founding of the Paris Review, to his life as an American journalist, writer, editor, actor, and occasional amateur sportsman. George Plimpton was famous for "participatory journalism," and in this portrait, we meet the man, the writer, and the "experiencer," who through his willingness to do anything for a story, brought his readers and viewers into the lives and careers of those he joined, so that they could be shared by all.
