Episode 21: Where the Sidewalk Ends

Where the Sidewalk EndsThis week, we watch Where the Sidewalk Ends, Otto Preminger’s steely cop drama.

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because it’s a great film, and we spoil the ending. This film is currently available on DirecTV and on DVD. There are also stray free copies of the film on YouTube and on Archive.org, but we’re never sure how long those will hang around.

Join us on April 7th for our episode on Sunset Blvd!
