What to Watch: A look at noses through cinema history

Classic glasses and nose disguise.

It’s a special Labor Day version of “What to Watch” with our resident movie critic, and Morning Edition host, George Prentice!

The nose knows. There’s a controversy brewing over noses, specifically prosthetic noses that actors use when playing roles like the current movie Golda.

Actress Helen Mirren has been caught up in controversy as she plays Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. George takes a look at fake noses through movie history and at how the nose uproar is taking away from stellar acting and a fascinating historical story.

When people ask me, “What time do you start Morning Edition?” my go-to answer is, “Don’t worry. No matter what time you get up, we’re on the job.”
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
