For one forty six I look at two movies Michael Caine made in 1970 and look at the historical reasons why the projects worked so well from his point of view. Firstly there's the Robert Aldrich directed WW2 drama Too Late The Hero also starring Cliff Robertson and Henry Fonda then we go to the 30 Year War in the 17th Century for The Last Valley, also starring Omar Sharif and Nigel Davenport.

There's also feedback.

This time around I look at racist rabble-rousing, not in the Australian Parliament but in the southern USA in the 1960s with 1963's Roger Corman directed movie The Intruder starring William Shatner, then we hit 1970 for one of Mel Brooks' least known movies, the Russia based comedy: The Twelve Chairs. 

Also, feedback.

Hi cinephiles. This time around, thanks to Patreon supporter Maurice, I look at the 1942 anti-Nazi comedy To Be Or Not To Be, directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Jack Benny and Carole Lombard, then we go totally in another direction, namely 1990s action cinema for Tony Scott's 1991 action flick The Last Boy Scout starring Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans, with a script from none other than Shane Black.

Also, there's feedback and music. Enjoy!

This time one of the podcast's Patreon patrons, Tom Dale from Canberra and I talk about a couple of dramas from the 40s and 50s. We start with Carol Reed's The Third Man from 1949 starrign Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Alida Valli and Trevor Howard then we hit 1954 for The Country Girl, a stage drama starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and William Holden. Also there's feedback and a bit of a bonus at the end and I talk about retrieving lost song lyrics from the memory vault.

It all adds up to almost two hours of fun, one of the biggest episodes ever.

Then we smash-cut to 1960 for the crime caper movie Seven Thieves starring Edward G. Robinson, Rod Steiger, Eli Wallach and Joan Collins. I also tell you about a dream I had and about how I robbed Crown Casino last night.

This time around I'm looking at Australian dicks. Not phalluses but good honest Australian detectives starting out with 1975's Scobie Malone starring Jack Thompson and Judy Morris then a decade later looking at the adaptation of Peter Corris'Cliff Hardy novel The Empty Beach starring Bryan Brown and Anna Maria Monticelli. Enjoy!

This time around the movies were selected by Miss Jane as part of the Paleo-Cinema Patreon Campaign. The first movie is a 1933 comedy/drama starring Lionel and John Barrymore, Wallace Beery and Jean Harlow: Dinner At Eight. The second movie is the film thought to be the funniest American comedy of all time, the Billy Wilder directed Some Like It Hot, with Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon.


I also look at the strange and cinematic death of French jazz musician and polymath Boris Vian.
