Paleo-Cinema Podcast 151 - 8 1/2 and All That Jazz






It's time to look at autobiographical movies and two of the best are Federico Fellini's 1963 masterwork Otto E Mezzo, (8 1/2) starring Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale and Sandra Milo. and Bob Fosse's 1979 musical autobiopic All That Jazz starring Roy Schneider, Jessica Lange, Anne Reinking and Leland Palmer.
So we go from Rome to Broadway looking at movies that are about their directors.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 154 - Murderous French Women






Just for a change I've decided to do two French films together and both feature murdering women. First off there is the 1968 Francoise Truffaut adaptation of Cornell Woolrich's novel The Bride Wore Black starring Jeanne Moreau then we go right to 1990 for the cinema de look action classic, Nikita (a.k.a. La Femme Nikita) starring Anne Parillaud and Jean Reno.

For Australia/ Invasion Day I look at a couple of iconic Australian films - 1949's Eureka Stockade starring Chips Rafferty and Peter Finch and Phillip Noyce's 1987 Newsfront starring Bill Hunter and Wendy Hughes. Both great looks at Australian history and both worth your attention.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 152 - Smiles Of A Summer Night From Here To Eternity







This time around I'm going for the big time. Ingmar Bergman's 1955 romcom Smiles Of A Summer night, and then on to a movie that won 8 Academy Awards from 13 nominations in 1953, including a Best Supporting Actor gong for Frank Sinatra - From Here To Eternity. What do these movies have in common? Both have been adapted as musicals.

This time, I take a look at the first two St. Trinians movies, Belles of St Trinians and Blue Murder At St Trinians, so it's going to be schoolgirls, dodgy teddy boys, inept bureaucrats and all the fun of movie-makers thumbing their noses at post-War Britain.
