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.
