Paleo-Cinema Podcast 40 The Funeral for A Cold Spy in Berlin Memorandum

This time around it's Eurospy again. Three movies set in Berlin, all made in either 1965 or 1966. One has a script by one of the most interesting playwrights of the 20th Century, another based on a book by a spy novelist who was once a spy and the third has Michael Caine in it. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the idea that maybe we weren't all going to die in a nuclear holocaust, here is Paleo-Cinema Podcast 40.

Paleo-Cinema Podcast #39 Frankenheimer's Paranoia Trilogy. Brainwashing, Coups and Eternal Youth

For Podcast 39 I look at what has been called John Frankenheimer's Paranoia Trilogy, the 1962 film, The Manchurian Candidate, 1964's Seven Days In May and 1966's Seconds. All of the speak to the fears of the time and all have influenced the plots of many subsequent lesser movies. Oddly enough, the zeitgeist fears of the 1960s resemble many of the zeitgeist fears of the Noughties. That's part of the fun of watching old movies: seeing our own lives and times foreshadowed in them.
