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.

December 6, 2018  

For this episode, it's Northern California a century ago for the 1955 adaptation of John Steinbeck's East Of Eden, starring James Dean, Julie Harris and Raymond Massey. Then we head to 1961 for a small, forgotten political drama No Love For Johnnie starring Peter Finch, Billie Whitelaw and Stanley Holloway.

Forty eight years in the making, Orson Welles' final film The Other Side Of The Wind has been released on Netflix. I talk about it and what I think about it. Watching this one was a weird, wonderful journey.

This time around, I look at the prophetic and slightly pathetic 1979 American satirical comedy Americathon starring John Ritter, Zane Buzby and Peter Riegert. If you ever wanted to see Meat Loaf fight a car, this is the movie for you. I also waffle about watching movies in the cinema as opposed to home screens.

Musicals again. We go from the 1943 all black musical Cabin In The Sky starring Ethel Waters and Eddie Anderson to the first musical Francis Ford Coppola directed, 1968's Finian's Rainbow starring Fred Astaire, Petula Clark and Keenan Wynn.

This time we go from Charles Bronson to Burl Ives with the 1975 Alistair McLean adaptation Breakheart Pass starring Bronson, Jill Ireland and Richard Crenna, then we move back to 1958 for the adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize winning play Cat On A Hot Tin Roof starring Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman and Burl Ives. Could two movies be any more different?

This time I look at Humphrey Bogart's last film, the boxing drama/expose The Harder They Fall also starring Rod Steiger and Jan Sterling. From there it's over to the second Cinerama narrative feature film, the picaresque How The West Was Won with a cast of hundreds. So we go from palookas to pinto ponies.

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.

This time I chat with Dr Zom (not a real doctor) from Silva And Gold Podcast http://silvaandgold.com/ about Tom Cruise's weird asexual persona, Ralph Meeker, weird Japanese Reality TV and James Bond... for an hour and a half.

This time, as I have a bad cold, I went for a different format. I put out questions for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) and the listeners responded. 

 

Here are the questions, and answers, and a little bit of music.

Back from hiatus, I take a look at a stylistically interesting biblical epic, 1954's The Silver Chalice with Paul Newman, Pier Angeli and Jack Palance, then to a 1952 hidden gem of a film noir with absolutely no dialogue at all, The Thief, starring Ray Milland and Rita Gam.
