Prior to its release, much was made of the fact that Michael Mann's 1995 LA crime drama "Heat" would be the first movie to feature De Niro and Pacino onscreen together in the same scene. Lori Balton would soon learn how critical the setting for this scene was to Mr. Mann and the creative team when every restaurant location that she brought in for consideration was rejected. We discuss how this played out and much much more when I am joined by the first location manager to ever be inducted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for this chat on the back channel where the real work gets done on set, "Locations on Two!"
