Wow, I’ve been getting a lot of good movies, lately! “Nightmare Alley” is a . . . Circus Noir(?) from 1947 starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell and, man, is it something! It’s got crime and death and drinking and tarot cards and . . . what more do you want?!

025 – The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Introducing the CLASSIC MOVIE MONSTER . . . discrimination. That’s right! Ollie and I are talking 1939’s adaptation of Victor Hugo’s “Notre Dame de Paris” and it’s a doozy. Like, it’s a solid film from a *film* perspective, but it’s got some uncomfortable stuff from a disability perspective. Also, a Roma perspective. It’s troubling all around, but surprisingly entertaining, all things considered.

Bonus! – “Freaks” with Lil!

It’s a BONUS EPISODE! No, I haven’t forgotten about the whole “bi-weekly” thing, I swear. But, Ollie’s friend Lil watched “Freaks” and really wanted to talk about it! So . . . I have no part in this. Give it a listen!

020 – Freaks!

“Gooble Gobble!” everyone! This week, Ollie and I learn to not make fun of differently abled people, because you could end up . . . different yourself? It’s Tod Browning’s “Freaks” from 1932 and is it ever a trip! Like a good trip. It’s good.
