When iconic director, actor, critic and historian Peter Bogdanovich was getting his start in the movie business, he had the opportunity to interview some of the greatest directors of the Golden Age of Hollywood, including Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Howard Hawks, and John Ford. In the process, he accumulated a treasure trove of conversations with masters of cinema. Near the end of his own storied career, and what would turn out to be the end of his life, Bogdanovich decided to take his career full circle and began to interview his favorite contemporary directors about their heroes from the past. Bogdanovich passed away before this project could be completed. His ex-wife Louise Stratten stepped in to serve as narrator and co-host, with three-time Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro filling in as host for the final three episodes. One Handshake Away is a collection of unprecedented longform conversations with some of the most acclaimed directors working today. Quentin Tarantino, Ken Burns, Greta Gerwig and others pay homage to the influence of the directorial legends of the past, bringing listeners One Handshake Away from the icons of Hollywood's past and present.
