Stranger than fiction: Ben Affleck’s 'Argo'

Ben Affleck transports us back to revolution-era Tehran with his latest acting and directing effort. "Argo" tells the stranger-than-fiction story of how the CIA tried to smuggle six Americans out of Iran by staging a fake movie. Also, Argentine director Gonzalo Tobal is in the studio to tell us about his coming-of-age movie "Villegas". And singer Diana Krall goes back to the roots of jazz for her latest album, updating classics from the 1920s and 1930s for a new century.
