In his four-and-a-half-hour Archive interview, Reza Badiyi (1929-2011) discusses working in his native Iran, where he won awards for documentary filmmaking, and talks about coming to the United States to assist with low budget films, including those directed by a young Robert Altman. He details his innovative title designs for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, That Girl, and for Hawaii Five-O, which featured memorable location footage, jump cuts and slow motion effects. Additionally, Badiyi recalls dozens of series for which he served as a director, including: Get Smart, Mission: Impossible, and Cagney & Lacey. B-roll includes photos from his early years with Robert Altman, as well as an example of his specially organized call sheet, known as the Reza sheet. Karen Herman conducted the interview on November 6, 2003 in Los Angeles, CA.
