American Masters Presents: Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter

I watched this great documentary tonight on PBS about Charles and Ray Eames, the famous architect and painter couple.  I enjoyed very much.  Check your local PBS listing for the next showing.

From PBS
American Masters presents the first film made about America’s most important and influential designers, Charles and Ray Eames, since their deaths in 1978 and 1988, respectively — and the only film that explores the link between their artistic collaboration and sometimes tortured marriage. Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey’s definitive documentary delves into the private world the Eameses created in their Renaissance-style, Venice Beach, California studio, where design history was born. Narrated by James Franco, Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter premieres nationally Monday, December 19 from 10-11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on PBS (check local listings) as the 25th anniversary season finale of American Masters.
