Episode 27: Pickup on South Street

Pickup on South StreetIn this week’s episode, we go through the pros and cons (heh) of Samuel Fuller’s Pickup on South Street!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because we go straight into spoiler territory. This film is sadly not available on any “official” streaming channels at this time, but Dailymotion usually has a copy floating around. If you would like to see a version that is less grey-market, the film is easily available on DVD.
