The clip talking to family at home from Born on the Fourth of July (1989) with Raymond J. Barry, Caroline Kava
No, Tommy. After supper.
Can I come with you?
There's the next conference champion.
Sorry I'm late, Ma.
There's rice on the stove
and fruit in the icebox.
It's on your diet, right?
I got to drop 3 pounds by Saturday.
Your brother's a hard worker, Tommy,
'cause he wants to be the best.
Win or lose--in school, in sports, in life--
as long as you do your best,
that's what matters to God.
Win or lose, we still love him.
Can I go to my room?
Thank you, God, for this food.
In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, amen.
Daddy, Jimmy took my doll!
I'll get the doll.
I hate his guts!
Just go to bed.
I didn't take anything!
Where's your sister's doll?
Jackie? Why is Jackie not in bed?
Where'd you get this?
Why are you in my room?
Don't change the subject.
I don't allow Playboy magazine in this house.
Stevie gave it to me.
You have filthy, impure thoughts!
God's going to punish you.
I haven't even looked at it yet, all right?
Go to confession. I want you to tell Father McKenna.
I don't want to see this filthy magazine
in my house again.
Now, take this away!
What's going on?
What do you mean, nothing?
Nothing, Dad. O.K.?
The clip being-interviewed from Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser (Straight, No Chaser ) (1988) with Thelonious Monk, Bob Jones. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. What is more important in your work? Playing the piano or composing? - I do both. - Both. Mr. Monk, do you always wear different hats and caps in your concerts? Do they have an influence in your music? No. Good question. Maybe they do. I don't know. Do you think the piano has enough keys? 88? Or do you want more or less? It's hard work to play those 88. I was in the room, Nellie was in the room, backstage. And a reporter came and asked him what kind of music he liked. And Thelonious: "I like all kinds of music." A pretty good, legitimate answer. And then the reporter said, "Do you like country music?" Thelonious didn't answer. And the reporter said, "Well, do you? Do you like country music?" Thelonious looked at me and said, "I think the fellow's hard of hearing."

Live television is the scariest medium of all... ...because it's millions of people. If you're going to act silly or not show up... ...it's going to be a glaring omission. I just remember being very nervous. He sat down and he played, and I was aware... ...of a real professional. What's there to be nervous about? He's there. I remember though, on the way back, he was a little pissed off... ...at Count Basie. What did he say? He said Count Basie kept looking at him... ...while he was playing. He was at the piano and that somehow bothered him. He said, "Next time he plays, I'm going to look at him."
