“Let me try and be as direct as I possibly can with you on this. There was no relationship to repair. I didn’t intend for Harvey to buy and release The Immigrant – I thought it was a terrible idea. And I didn’t think he would want the film, and I didn’t think he would like the film. He bought the film without me knowing! He bought it from the equity people who raised the money for me in the States. And I told them it was a terrible idea, but I had no say over the matter. So they sold it to him without my say-so, and with me thinking it was a terrible idea. I was completely correct, but I couldn’t do anything about it. It was not my preference, it was not my choice, I did not want that to happen, I have no relationship with Harvey. So, it’s not like I repaired some relationship, then he screwed me again, and I’m an idiot for trusting him twice! Like I say, you try to distance yourself as much as possible from the immediate response to a movie. With The Immigrant I had final cut. So he knew he couldn’t make me change it. But he applied all the pressure he could, including shelving the film.”

STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW
Truly Indie, John Gau Productions, FurnaceTV and NerdTV present STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW in limited showings in select cities, on Wednesday, November 16 & Thursday, November 17. This unique in-theatre presentation came about from recent contact between Robert Cringely, technology writer and expert, and Mark Cuban, co-owner of Landmark Theatres and its parent Wagner/Cuban Companies. Cringely had the compelling content, and Cuban the means to present it. It is being rushed into theatres to allow audiences to witness a key moment with one of the most important figures of our time.
STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW
In 1995 Robert Cringely made Triumph of the Nerds, an epic PBS miniseries about the founding of the personal computer industry that has been seen in more than 60 countries. A highlight of the show was Cringely’s interview with Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in which he sorely criticized Microsoft for making bad products. That candid, controversial, and funny interview with an old associate (Cringely had worked for Jobs at one time) was by far the best TV interview Jobs ever gave. Yet less than 10 minutes were used in the series and the other 59 minutes were lost forever when the master tapes disappeared in shipping.
An unedited copy of the entire Jobs interview was discovered recently in London. Restored and improved, yet completely original and unedited, STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW will be playing select screenings at Landmark Theaters in 19 cities beginning November 16.
Jobs is the design icon and cranky genius who grew Apple 100-fold into the most valuable company in America by revolutionizing computers, music, movies, telephones, and more. STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW is a fascinating piece of history, as well as a unique look into the mind of an American business genius. Most importantly, it offers fresh insight and a deep understanding of a man who changed our world.
The running time for STEVE JOBS: THE LOST INTERVIEW is 70 minutes; it is not rated. It is directed by Paul Sen.
