Amsel died of AIDS in 1985. The following excerpt from Emerald City is from October 30, 1978, and represents the only known footage of the artist discussing his craft, with special attention paid to his movie poster for Death on the Nile.

The clip also features great comments from equally legendary illustrator and artist David Edward Byrd (b. April 4, 1941).
