Episode 109 – High Noon

High NoonKyle Dekker joins us to watch a Western that is a not even a little bit subtle allegory for the behavior of Hollywood during the House UnAmerican Activities Committee hearings – High Noon! Gary Cooper won an Oscar for his powerful portrayal of a man who slowly comes to realize that nobody will stand up for him in his time of greatest need. We talk a lot about how much John Wayne hated this film because John Wayne really hated this film. Screenwriter Carl Foreman had to leave the country for England while this movie was filming so he had some knowledge of the damage the HUAC could do. We had a ball watching the movie and we hope you enjoy it as well!

Coming up next: Goonies! This time for sure!

Episode 9 – Rear Window

Rear WindowOnce again, we were able to record an episode live at Pepito’s Parkway Theatre in Minneapolis.  This time, we watched the Alfred Hitchcock classic “Rear Window.”  Not only had Jena never seen this film before, it was her first Hitchcock film ever.  And she got to see it on the big screen!  The print was amazing and you should all feel really bad that you missed it.  However, you can console yourself by listening to this episode where we dump love all over the master and one of this best films.

Our next episode will air on November 1st and we’ll talk about “The Abominable Dr. Phibes.”

Our next live recording at Pepito’s will be on Sunday, November 17th.  We’ll be watching John Carpenter’s “The Thing!”
