It’s SHOWTIME, folks!!!
See Hear is back for another episode of music related film discussion, and do we have a really big shoooo for you.
Unfortunately, our beloved Bernie Sticky was not available to record, but joining Wendi, Tim and Maurice is the co host of Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, Mr Frank Santopadre. Frank is a fountain of knowledge, an encyclopedia of cinema if you will.
For episode 19, we all discuss Bob Fosse’s incredible autobiographical 1979 film, All That Jazz. The film features Roy Scheider in a career best performance (go on – argue against that notion if you can) as Fosse’s proxy, Joe Gideon. Joe is a Broadway director and choreographer, and a film director. He is all consumingly devoted to his art, but is a poor husband, father, and companion. He’s not a great male figure, yet he’s not shown as a shallow character without dimension. We have a fascinating conversation about devotion to art over devotion to domesticity, manipulation, how the entertainment business spits out its own, death, the truth, and the Mile High Club.
We start off the show talking with Frank about his work on Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast. It’s a fascinating story about a show devoted to preserving unique stories of old time Hollywood. Their show is funny and reverent all at once with regular stories about Danny Kaye, Laurence Olivier, Groucho Marx, Milton Berle and Bela Lugosi. You NEED Gilbert and Frank in your life.
If you dig what we do, could you please rate us at iTunes or even better, spread the word that the show exists so more folks can tune in.
