In 1957 when Frank Lloyd Wright was 90 years old and in New York to supervise construction of his last masterpiece, the Guggenheim Museum, Mike Wallace invited him to be a guest on The Mike Wallace Interview. Mr. Wright eagerly accepted the invitation. The initial conversation between the two proved to be so provocative and compelling that Mr. Wright was invited for a second appearance.
These two interviews are notable not only for what Mr. Wright says about his own work and about architecture in general, but also for the colorful expression of his iconoclastic views on a wide range of social and cultural topics. And in the free-wheeling give and take of these conversations Mr. Wallace succeeds in revealing some of the most telling aspects of Mr. Wright's character, showing him at once to be wise, idealistic, nonconformist, and uniquely self-confident. Rarely has a figure of such historic importance been so admiringly yet revealingly captured.
