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.

This time around, more comedies. First the 1944 adaptation of Oscar Wilde's 1887 novella, The Canterville Ghost, starring Charles Laughton, Robert Young and Margaret O'Brien, then we go to 1978 for the seminal college comedy, National Lampoon's Animal House starring John Belushi, Tim Matheson and Peter Riegert. Spooks and Toga Parties for everyone.

It's Buenopalooza time with two films from Oscar-nominated actor Victor Bueno. First the 1964 creepy low budget take on The Boston Strangler - The Strangler then we move on to a movie that combines charcuterie with Sweeney Todd, the 1971 dark comedy, The Bad Butcher a.k.a. Meat Is Meat a.k.a. Lo strangolatore di Vienna. So put on your polo necks and sit back and enjoy the ride.

For this one I go from a 1970 WW2 caper film, Kelly's Heroes starring Clint Eastwood and Donald Sutherland to a 1957 Hemingway adaptation, The Sun Also Rises starring Tyrone Power and Ava Gardner. Tanks to bulls. The kid stays in the picture.

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 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.
