||Filmed in several locations, this 1953 NBC interview features the icon of 20th-century architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, in discussions of his life, work, and philosophy. Wright divulges two of his earliest influences, one logical (Louis Sullivan) and the other somewhat surprising (his mother). The house in Oak Park is shown and discussed, as is the Fallingwater house and Wright's homes - Taliesin in Wisconsin and Taliesin West in California. A rural church that Wright designed is discussed as are interiors and exteriors of the Johnson Factory Building. Exploring his public persona, the architect makes no apology for choosing honest arrogance over hypocritical humility. He claims his greatest achievement will always be his next design.
