Episode 9: Shadow of a Doubt

Shadow of a DoubtWe’ve gone far too long in this podcast without visiting the Master of Suspense, so join us this week in watching Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because we spoil a lot of the fun bits. The film can currently be found for rental on iTunes and Amazon Instant as well as various other places.

Our next episode will be about Kansas City Confidential, a great little noir that few people have seen. Listen for it on October 7th!

Oh, and in case you need that Hume Cronyn meme that we talked about during this episode… here you go!

Episode 3: The Postman Always Rings Twice

The Postman Always Rings TwiceIn this episode, we discuss the steamy Postman Always Rings Twice! This is the movie that brought Lana Turner’s legs into Hollywood legend, and if that’s not enough to sell you on this film, I’ll add that it also contains prime Hume Cronyn.

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because we get really detailed about the plot and because you really should experience this great film. It can easily be obtained on DVD, but if you’re the streaming video type, you’ll also find that it’s currently available for rental on iTunes.

Our next episode will be about the 1945 Otto Preminger film, Fallen Angel! Look for it on July 7th.
