Director Andrew Davis has made films set in deserts and at sea. But when he directs movies based in cities, he always tries to bring them to Chicago. “I understood the city,” he said. “And I understood the fabric of how to get something to look tough, or look slick, or look classy.” 

Davis grew up in Chicago. You may know him for “The Fugitive,” but he started his career with a different Chicago-based movie. 

In this episode, host Erin Allen talks to Davis about his career and the 45th anniversary of his first film “Stony Island.”
