Above Average Making Of
13 June 2005 | by allfunandgamesSee all my reviews

Going the Distance: Remembering Marathon Man is your standard, run-of-the-mill retrospective making of documentary with all the key players present, but with a couple of notable exceptions. What makes this worth your precious time, is hearing William Goldman's very candid thoughts on the altering of his novel and subsequent screenplay and Dustin Hoffman stating that if he hadn't been married at the time he and his leading lady would have gotten on "very well" (with raised eyebrows and added emphasis). An above average making of that I would definitely recommended to fans of the film and to the Robert Evans junkies out there.
