CBS Sunday Morning:

  COVER STORY: Intimacy on screen
Movies have long had stunt coordinators to oversee action scenes. But In the era of #MeToo, there’s a new focus on how romantic scenes are filmed for movies and TV. It’s led to the rise of a new figure on set: the intimacy coordinator, who helps actors and directors choreograph and act out sexual encounters safely and effectively. Rita Braver talks with Alicia Rodis, of Intimacy Directors International, about how the HBO series “The Deuce” changed the way actors get up-close-and-personal.

Carmen Miranda
On February 9, 1909, the samba singer, dancer and star of Hollywood musicals – celebrated as the “lady with the tutu-frutti hat” – was born.  Jane Pauley reports

Small town theater
Sixty-five-year-old Craig Smith has loved movies his whole life. So much so that, about 10 years ago, he took a leap of faith, and his life savings, to turn an old firehouse in Kingston, Washington, into the tiny town’s only movie house. But running a theater that’s practically a one-man operation isn’t easy, and Smith has faced difficulties that have stirred the community to help. Lee Cowan takes in a show at the Firehouse Theater.
