Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews actor Alan Arkin about the film Fire Sale, which he directed and in which he also stars. Arkin discusses his love of both acting and directing, and the seriousness of the comedians in the cast. When talk turns to family, Arkin talks about how much he loves working with his wife and his children, on many projects, that include acting as well as children's albums and books.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
