COVER STORY: How intimacy coordinators are changing the way intimate encounters are filmed | Watch Video
Movies have long had stunt coordinators to oversee action scenes. But In the era of #MeToo, there's a new focus on how romantic scenes are filmed for movies and TV. It's led to the rise of a new figure on set: the intimacy coordinator, who helps actors and directors choreograph and act out sexual encounters safely and effectively. Rita Braver talks with Alicia Rodis, of Intimacy Directors International, about how the HBO series "The Deuce" changed the way actors get up-close-and-personal.

But running a theater that's practically a one-man operation isn't easy, and Smith has faced difficulties that have stirred the community to help. Lee Cowan takes in a show at the Firehouse Theater.

A promise fulfilled: Filming a story of heroism in battle | Watch Video
On April 11, 1966, Airman 1st Class William Pitsenbarger personally saved more than 60 service members who had been ambushed by the Viet Cong. He was killed in action while trying to help the injured. The survivors of that battle recommended him for the Medal of Honor, a tribute that would not be fulfilled for nearly 35 years. Pitsenbarger's story is now told in a new film, "The Last Full Measure." CBS News national security correspondent David Martin talks with director Todd Robinson about his promise to Vietnam War veterans that their story, and Pitsenbarger's sacrifice, would not be forgotten.

MOVIES: Tatum O'Neal | Watch Video
Tatum O'Neal was only nine when she starred in her first film, 1973's "Paper Moon," with her father, Ryan O'Neal. She stole the show, and won an Academy Award.

She's always been remarkably open about her struggles with addiction, her divorce from tennis great John McEnroe (with whom she has three children), and a strained relationship with her dad. But O'Neal is showing the same grit with her family, her health and her career as she showed on screen as a child. Correspondent Tracy Smith reports.
