This is a disappointing effort by the usually good Muller as here he mostly interviews Rubin and neither are scene-specific. Muller allows Rubin to go off topic too often, although otherwise the discussion covers how Rubin was removed as producer of the film, casting including Russell and Mitchum, Howard Hughes, the director, working in the studio system, and some of the film's weaknesses. Jane Russell has recorded her comments separately and remarks on the director, Mitchum, her singing in the film, and costumes. However she too goes off-topic in her mentioning the WAIF adoption agency she helped for 40 years. There are some pauses.
