In these three edited segments from 24 Action News broadcasts for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires spotlights the film The Accused (1988). The first two segments feature interviews with the stars of the film, actresses Kelly McGillis and Jodie Foster. McGillis discusses her personal connection to the subject matter of the film, as a rape victim herself. Foster talks about the Oscar buzz surrounding her performance and what she learned from making the movie. In the final segment, Faires reviews The Accused, hailing Foster’s performance and giving the film three-and-a-half stars. He also delivers a movie review of Punchline (1988), saying it “rings with truth.” Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
