Terry Gilliam on Letterman in 1982

Back in February 1982 Terry Gilliam appeared on Late Night with David Letterman to talk about Time Bandits as it opened at US cinemas.

It’s an interesting appearance as it was only the third episode of ‘Late Night’ and the banter is a little more irreverent than you might expect from the talk show host these days.
