Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews producer Marvin Worth at the release of his latest film, Fire Sale. Over the course of the conversation, Worth theorizes about creating successful comedy, the delicate matter of laughing at dark humor and the problem with filming on an open set. They also discuss Worth's career as a writer and producer, and his acting debut in this film. Some candid conversation is captured after the interview, before the camera stopped rolling.

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.
