Crystal has had his share of memorable roles, from “The Princess Bride” to his work on “Saturday Night Live” and hosting the Oscars, but “When Harry Met Sally” is perhaps his most iconic work.
“When Harry Met Sally” celebrates its 34th anniversary this July. Last December, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for entry in the National Film Registry.
In speaking with the Library of Congress about making the movie, Crystal said, “I just felt so plugged into the process of making the movie… Not that anything is ever easy, but it was just such a joy to see it come to life.”
As for the movie’s ongoing appeal, the actor said, “The movie is beautiful and simple and appropriate, and every shot is just right.”
In 2019, Crystal reunited with co-star Meg Ryan and director Rob Reiner for a 30th anniversary screening at the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival.
