In this clip from the January 27, 1983 episode of NBC’s TODAY Show, Gene Shalit interview and 8-year-old Drew Barrymore. She discusses her career, her latest movie, ET and introduces the world to her favorite stuffed animal. Adorable! She also mentions the connection between ET and Poltergeist and says that Steven was doing both at the same time. Another log on the fire of the “Who Directed Poltergeist” controversy?
Gene…please never ask your guests to scream ever again.
