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.

Fpr 219 I look at a wildly popular adventure film from 1977  - The Deep, starring Robert Shaw, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset. We then go to 1972 for the Bruce Lee martial arts film Fist Of Fury, which I compare to Death Wish. I also explain why.

For this one, I look at a couple of classic movie comedies that went on to spin-off crazily successful American TV series. First we have Neil Simon's The Odd Couple starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the second of their ten collaborations. We then move on to the 1970 Robert Altman film MASH starring Donald Sutherland and Elliot Gould. New York slobs and South Korean Army surgeons.

This time around it's film noir versus movie mashup with my first viewing of the classic 1950 noir caper thriller The Asphalt Jungle starring Sterling Hayden, Sam Jaffe and Jean Hagen, then we go to one of the first movie mashups in history, Joe Dante's 1968 compilation Movie Orgy which combines old science fiction movies from the 1950s with cartoons, TV shows, political footage and PSAs to create a meta-narrative about the 1960s.

This time around, two films from the 1970s. We start with Ivan Dixon's 1973 movie about a black militant who joins the CIA, The Spook Who Sat By The Door, then we move on to Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, Play Misty For Me starring Eastwood, Jessica Walter and Donna Mills.

This time it's two very 1960s films. The semi-successful satire on beach movies and youth culture - 1966's Lord Love A Duck starring Roddy McDowell, Lola Albright and Tuesday Weld and then to the epic 1960 story of the formation of the state of Israel, Exodus starring Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint and Lee J. Cobb.

For 214 it's crime movies. We go from 1967 southern US race tensions in In The Heat Of The Night starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger to the moral ambiguity of Reagan Era LA in William Friedkin's To Live And Die In LA starring William Peterson and Willem Dafoe.

This time around it's musicals. Tansy Rayner Roberts and I go from the rootin' tootin' (not much rootin') western action of Calamity Jane (1953) with Doris Day, Howard Keel and Dick Wesson to the darker musical, Bob Fosse's Cabaret starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Gray. It's a long one this time but we had a lot of fun with it.

This time around, it's pop culture chat with author, rock climber and cave clan emeritus expert Claire McKenna. We talk movies, politics, culture, television, Hollywood and social media in one long stream of semi-conscious. Lots of surprises but nothing dangerous, as Willie Wonka said.
