Paleo-Cinema Podcast A podcast about movies: all kinds of retro, cult, grindhouse, forgotten and interesting movies, childhood favourites and things I have just discovered.

February 6, 2016  

This time around it's two Eurocrime movies from the great and largely unsung action director Henri Verneuil. 1969's The Sicilian Clan starring Jean Gabin, Alain Delon and Lino Ventura and 1971's The Burglars (Le Casse) starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Omar Sharif and Dyanne Cannon. Capers, car chases, tough guys and the best plan hijacking in cinema history.

This time around I take a look at Le Magnifique, a 1973 comedy adventure starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jacqueline Bisset and a classic film noir, 1946's Gilda starring Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford and George Macready.

For the first Paleo-Cinema of 2016 I go action all the way looking at Seijun Suzuki's highly entertaining 1963 Yakuza film Detective Bureay 2-3 Go To Hell Bastards! and then on to Fernando Di Leo's 1973 Italian mafia actioner La Mala Ordina a.k.a The Italian Connection. All violence, all the way.

For this episode it's music all the way, from female comedians taking the piss out of the Rolling Stones to The Magic Circle Club, this one covers the waterfront.

This time around, it's silliness to profundity, first looking at the 1992 pastiche of A Night At The Opera, it's Brain Donors starring John Turturro, Bob Nelson and Mel Smith, then we go onto the hard stuff, John Cassavetes' harrowing and emotionally raw drama from 1968, Faces starring John Marley, Lynn Carlin and Gena Rowlands.

This time around, just for a change, I take a look at a film noir (just kidding, happens every few episodes).  This time it's 1948's Pitfall, starring Dick Powell, Lizabeth Scott, Jane Wyatt and Raymond Burr, then we move forward a decade to one of Alec Guinness' best roles in the 1958 adaptation of Joyce Cary's The Horse's Mouth also starring Renee Houston and Kay Walsh.

This time I breakout of the usual Paleo-Cinema Podcast format to look at the history of James Bond, James Bond in the 21st Century and the 2015 James Bond movie SPECTRE.

This time, it's another film noir episode with a twist. The French invented the term film noir in the late 1940s but they produced a film in 1931 which influenced film noir. That movie, La Chienne directed by Jean Renoir is the focus of this podcast along with Scarlet Street from 1945, which is the American remake of it. Both tell the same story but in different countries with different viewpoints.

This time around, a week late, I look at the 1943 American political movie Keeper Of The Flame starring Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.

This time around we go from a 1952 perfect crime movie, Phil Karlson's Kansas City Confidential (which you can view here for free) starring John Payne, Preston Foster and Lee Van Cleef to 1965 biowarfare paranoia with John Sturges' The Satan Bug starring George Maharis and Anne Francis.
