"Dalí and Picasso. No one else."

To ease Vernunft's heavy burden for a day, I'll link to this April 1958 Mike Wallace interview of Salvador Dalí. Wallace tries to be a serious interviewer, but Dalí was far too accomplished at being studiously nonsensical to let the interview be anything other than a piece of surrealist art. Dalí is surprisingly candid during parts, but Wallace seems unable to differentiate Dalí's serious claims from his jokes and obfuscations. Although a bit lengthy, it's certainly worth watching if you wish to see Dalí in action, or simply wish to see Mike Wallace repeatedly endorse Parliament Cigarettes.
