Some notable and Oscar-nominated films join the service.
Three years ago, Americans woke up to the nation's heroin crisis when one of our greatest actors died. The crisis hasn't gone away.
When PBS announced their American Masters documentary on Mike Nichols, I was relieved. Like so many admirers of his work, I grieved when he died in November of 2014.
