In this unedited interview for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires sits down with actress Susan Sarandon to talk about her latest film, Bull Durham (1988). The film, also starring Tim Robbins and Kevin Costner, was partly shot in Arlington, including scenes at Six Flags Over Texas. Sarandon discusses the challenges of working as an actress in a male-dominated industry and the legacy of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
