On PBS Monday night: Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter


.
Thanks to reader Shelly for this tip — Here’s a two-minute preview of the PBS documentary, Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter. The full-length, hour-and-half story appears Monday night, Dec. 19, 10 p.m. most places. Sure to be fascinating — I’m DVRing this one, too: 

Hi Pam– just got an email from my local PBS folks and there is an interesting-looking documentary on Ray & Charles Eames, airing locally in Phoenix Monday  at 10pm. Knowing PBS, they will re-air it several times, so I am hoping to DVR it… Bet your local PBS folks will have it, too! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season, and thanks as always for the fantastic blog.

    I really appreciated the tip on this as the movie is
    on tour currently in SF but I am not able to make it for any dates, so it’s recorded and waiting to view at my leisure. Thank you!

    This show was really good! So fascinating. I love American Masters. Especially loved the bit about the Arlene Francis interview…with Arlene continually trying to put Ray “in her place”…like Arlene couldn’t deal with the fact that a woman played an integral and equal role in the Eameses career…and Charles was uncomfortable with Arlene’s comments. Here is a video in case anyone wants to watch just that clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfzLzOl795E

    Fast forward to like, 1:06 or so for the good stuff…
