Episode 132 – Arsenic and Old Lace

, with special guest:

Arsenic and Old LaceFor this episode, we sort of followed Boris Karloff to a classic screwball comedy directed by Frank Capra. Arsenic and Old Lace was based on a stage play that featured Boris Karloff. He’s not in the movie, though. We’ll explain why. Alex Wick joins us to see if this 1941 comedy is still funny to a 19-year-old.  For the most part, it still is!

Up next, we are going to be watching Bride of Frankenstein!

, with special guest:

The Maltese FalconWe talked about this movie as far back as Episode 1 and it is finally here!  Jena gets shown one of the great classic noir films that she had, until this point, only known about through an episode of the Animanianiacs.  We talk about Humphrey Bogart, Sidney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre, maguffins and one of the most famous movie props of all time. Enjoy our conversation about The Maltese Falcon!

Our next episode will be recorded live at the Trylon Theater on Sunday, November 30th.  We’ll be watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles!
