Salvador Dali Gets Surreal with Mike Wallace (1958)



[Video Link] This Mike Wallace interview is a beautiful performance by Dali.

From Open Culture:

In 1958, [Mike] Wallace tried to demystify “the enigma that is Salvador Dali,” and it didn’t go terribly well. It turns out that surrealist painters give surreal answers to conventional interview questions too. Pretty quickly, Wallace capitulates and says, “I must confess, you lost me halfway through.” Happily for us, the video makes for some good viewing more than 50 years later.
