Paleo-Cinema Podcast 132 - Night and the City and Ida Lupino

For 132 I do something a little different. Firstly, I look at Jules Dassin's 1950 London film noir, Night and the CIty starring Richard Widmar, Gene Tierney and Googie Withers, then take a look at the acting and directing career of Ida Lupino, from her start in London to her career as both an actor and a movie and TV director.

This time around for 130 I look at Quentin Tarantino's second feature film, 1994's Pulp Fiction and then to complete the set, I grok in fullness Walter Hill's 1979 flick based on a story over 2300 years old... The Warriors.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast #129 - The Night Of The Iguana Robbery

For 129 and to celebrate St David's Day  on March 1st, I'm looking at two movies starring Welsh actors. Firstly, the 1967 dramatisation of The Great Train Robbery, prosaically entitled Robbery starring Sir Stanley Baker, Joanna Pettet and James Booth. Secondly, there's the 1964 movie adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play, The Night Of The Iguana starring Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr and Grayson Hall.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast 128 Amazon Women Are Adequate.

For 128 I look at two comedy satires about movies: 1987's Amazon Women On The Moon and the lesser known and lower budget 1989 movie That's Adequate - the only movie so far that starred both Robert Downey Jr. and Bruce Willis.

There's also the competition. The first person to create a Paleo-Cinema Podcast Wikipedia page gets to pick two of the movies for the podcast and chat with me about them on a future episode.

Feedback is great. Email or voicemail on 206 337 5398
