Shane Salerno on His J.D. Salinger Film

  • Aired: 09/06/2013
  • Rating: TV-G
Filmmaker Shane Salerno talks to Charlie Rose about his new film, 'Salinger,' which takes an in-depth look at the famously private author of 'Catcher in the Rye.' Why Salinger? Because as Salerno says, he's "one of the great mysteries of the 20th Century" -- and as he explains, we would never have had 'Catcher in the Rye' without his experiences in World War II.
