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, I talk about another train trip to Sydney and the two movies I watched en route. The first is the second pilot TV movie for the David Janssen series Harry-O, Smile, Jenny You're Dead also starring Jodie Foster and Clu Gulager. Then a movie where the screenwriter copied his previous movie's beats and tropes, 1963's The Prize starring Paul Newman and Elke Sommer.

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 episode, there are a lot of pimps. First I look at the 1974 movie Truck Turner starring Isaac Hayes and Nichelle Nicholls, then we go back to 1972 for Bernie Casey in Hit Man, based on the same novel and same script as Get Carter. So put on your platform shoes and your best pimp threads and enjoy.

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.
