I was searching around imdb.com (Internet Movie DataBase) today and found this incredible interview with Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner and star Jon Hamm. The interview is concerning the amazing episode in season four called ‘The Suitcase,” where Don and Peggy stay in the office overnight to do work for Samsonite suitcases.
If you have not seen this episode stop here and do not read the interview.
I love hearing writers talk about the emotions behind the episodes and how certain scenes came together. Having Hamm there was an interesting side of the character that I wasn’t really expecting. He speaks beautifully about his relationship with Peggy (the outstanding Elizabeth Moss), and shows a very humble relationship to the show.
Mad Men is such a fantastic show and the more I read and watch of it the more enthralled and obsessed I become with it. To read the interview click here.
