Our latest episode features the guest stylings of Bob Alberti! Bob joins us to talk about The Man Who Would be King. The film features a post Bond Sean Connery and a pre Jaws 4 Michael Caine as two ex soldiers looking to make a fortune by making themselves kings. We don’t want to spoil the movie so we won’t tell you how it works out for them. If you watch the first ten minutes of the movie, however, you’ll probably be able to guess. As if the two big name actors weren’t enough, this film was directed by the legendary John Houston and the costume designs were by Edith Head!
Join us next time when we’ll be watching The Adventures of Prince Achmed!
