Podcast #16 -Ozploitation and Blaxploitation

In this podcast I talk about one of my favourite Ozploitation movies, the 1975 kung fu action flick The Man From Hong Kong.

The Man From Hong Kong Trailer below.

I also look at one of the archetypal Blaxploitation movies - Gordon Parks' 1971 Shaft starring Richard Roundtree and Moses Gunn.

Shaft Trailer below.

Yet More Youtube Goodness

Time for some more of the good old stuff from da intawebs thanks to that happiest kingdom of them all, Youtube.

Bali Ha'i from South Pacific. Juanita Hall (dubbed by Muriel Smith) in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Why do I like this one? I love the matte painting of the island on the horizon which is some kind of utopia, visible but not yet attainable. I also love the fact that the most beautiful song in the movie is sung not by a blonde bombshell in a red evening gown, but an overweight middle aged Polynesian woman in scruffy clothing who radiates charisma.

The Nicholas Brothers Fayard and Harold, were the most acrobatic dancers ever caught on film. Fred Astaire reckoned that this was the best dance sequence ever caught on film, and who are we to argue? It's mind-blowingly good and terrifically joyous.
