Episode 47: Vertigo

VertigoThis week, we go see Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo in 70mm, and then we have a whole lot to say about it!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because oh boy do we spoil all the details. The film is readily available for rental on streaming services such as Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, and YouTube.

Note: Melissa only introduces Alee during the first segment, because they weren’t sure Tonya wasn’t at the theater yet, and she wasn’t sure she was going to make it in time for the start. She did get to the theater, though, so she hopped in for the after-film discussion… but Melissa totally forgot to introduce her after the music break. Sorry for any confusion!

Please join us again on May 7th, when we watch Rita Hayworth play Gilda!

Episode 45: Desert Fury

Desert FuryThis week, we are joined by Matthew Kessen for a very rare screening of Desert Fury!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode… if you can. This is sadly a very difficult movie to track down right now. We were lucky enough to see an actual film print at The Heights Theater. If you are truly determined, the movie has been released on DVD overseas and copies can often be found on Amazon. You can also probably find downloadable copies online, if you know where to look.

Please join us again on April 7th, when we continue with another color noir with Chinatown!
