Along with making all the movies they’re famous for, Alfred Hitchcock, Steve McQueen and Esther Williams, among others, all made their own home movies. That’s right, complete with kids’ hijinks, embarrassing moments and boring stretches. Weekend America host Bill Radke takes a look into the home movie lives of some Hollywood legends with Los Angeles Times film critic Carina Chocano and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science Archives curator Lynne Kirste.
