GGACP celebrates the 40th anniversary of the iconic 80's coming-of-age film "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (released August 13, 1982) by revisiting this interview with writer-director Amy Heckerling (“Clueless,” “National Lampoon's European Vacation”). In this episode, Amy weighs in on the double standard of onscreen nudity, the educational benefits of the “Million Dollar Movie,” the blandness of romantic comedies and the genius of Slavko Vorkapich. Also, Amy sparks to James Cagney, salutes Mort Drucker, “studies” with Terry Southern and finds inspiration in “Ed Wood.” PLUS: Ray Walston! “Jaws 2!” Praising Cameron Crowe! The mystery of Martin Brest! And Gilbert cuts the rug with John Travolta!
