Richard Benjamin "First, works" concentrates on the premiere films of current directors, interweaving clips with interviews with other eminent directors. At the end of each episode, the featured director's work is compared with lhat of a .student director in his mold. \VhiIe past segments of "First works" could be termed scholarly, this mouth's episode, featuring the work of Richard Benjamin (Feb. 8, 9), is decidedly un academic. Hcnjciinin was an actor for more than 20 years - "Goodbye, Columbus" . (10(9), "The Sunshine Boys" (1975) - before he became a director. And his first film was not made on a student budget, ''My Favorite Year" (1982) was a major comedy production featuring a major star (Peter O'Toole, who received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of fading film star Alan Swarm). "What I do is let actors be free. 1 knew that all I had to do was let O'Toole be O'Toole," he says of the actor whose character in "My Favorite Year" wasn't far from his true self. Me also lacks the pretensions of power that often go to a director's head. "My job is to solve problems. So when someone brings me one I act annoyed, but inside I really enjoy it. The director's job is to be the eye in the center of the hurricane." What isn't discussed here is why so many of Benjamin's .subsequent films have been disappointments - like "Racing With the Moon" (1984),' "The Money Pit" (1980), "Little Nikita" (1988) or the current "Downtown." A clip is shown from the abominable "My Stepmother Is an Alien" (1989), "My job was to make the absent-minded professor a lot like Fred MacMurray (in 'The Absent Minded 1'rofessor' and 'Son of Klubbcr')." Exactly. Benjamin is not questioned by his · off-screen .interviewer on this or any other flubs. 7:00 fJQ **Vi "AKA Cassius Clay" (19707 Biography) The persona and figMing techniques ot Muhammad AJi. the controversial ex-heavyweight champion, are featured.
