Narrated by George Plimpton, this documentary includes interviews with Edward Albee, John Updike, Alistair Cooke, Roy Blount Jr., Fran Lebowitz and others.. "A labor of love by Adam Van Doren...the first major biographical film about the wit that many consider second only to Mark Twain as an American humorist." - The Boston Globe. "An enthusiastic cadre of fans contribute fond reflections of Thurber, whose short stories and cartoons helped give The New Yorker its reputation for sophisticated humor and classy writing over the 30 years of their connection." - The New York Times
