Heath Ledger's Last Film and the Man Who Saved It

When actor Heath Ledger died suddenly two years ago, the film he was starring in was thrust into the news.

Now that movie – “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” – is in theaters, bringing Ledger to the big screen for the last time.

In this week’s Movies for Grownups, host Bill Newcott shares clips from the film and excerpts of an interview with its writer and director, Terry Gilliam, about his filmmaking style.

Press play on the audio player for a sneak peak into the movie that brought big Hollywood names together after a tragedy - when Ledger died, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell stepped in to finish his part.
