The Film That Lit My Fuse is a Deadline video series that aims to provide an antidote to headlines about industry uncertainty by swinging the conversation back to the creative ambitions, formative influences and inspirations of some of today’s great screen artists.
Every installment asks the same five questions. Today’s subject is Jamie Lee Curtis, who reprises her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the new installment of Halloween Kills which arrives next week. Hollywood royalty, the daughter of Psycho star Janet Leigh and Sweet Smell of Success star Tony Curtis started in the path her mother trod in the 1978’s original John Carpenter-directed Halloween, then became an accomplished actress in such films as Trading Places, True Lies, A Fish Called Wanda and Knives Out among many others.
Here, she reveals her favorite movies of all time are The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. Watch as she explains why they left such an imprint upon her.
