It’s October and many film fans in our community are watching horror films in advance of Halloween. The See Hear crew have gone their own path and are watching something completely different…..or have they?
In episode 21, we discuss a film with torture, imprisonment, and nightmares…..and it’s a kid’s film. Not just any kid’s film, though. Bernard, Tim and I discuss the 1953 film The 5000 Fingers of Dr T, directed by Roy Rowland, produced by Stanley Kramer (though some folks think he had a strong hand n its direction), and written by Theodore Geisel AKA Dr Seuss. There’s themes here post WW2 and of the Cold War, but it’s also about a kid having the freedom to be allowed to find time to do his own thing. We discuss things like shlooping and shleeping, Warners cartoons, Yellow Submarine, kids’ imaginations, scary figures in kids films, and George Chakiris. As usual, we had a ton of fun talking about this film. Please give the show a listen, and watch the film with a kid 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.
