The Complete Movie Hour Podcasts

0

Two-and-a-half weeks ago, I made a brief return to the Lionheart Radio studios in Alnwick while I was up in the North-East for a wedding. During that time I teamed up with my old sparring partner Richard Dale for a one-off special of The Movie Hour.

As I mentioned in my piece on Richard Attenborough, a fair chunk of this programme is taken up with tributes to Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams. Contrary to what I said then, I don't think there's much more that I can add that I didn't already say in the podcast. I still regard The Big Sleep as one of the best films of the 1940s, and still think that Robin Williams was as his best when he was being reined in by a director with genuine dramatic chops, like Kenneth Branagh, Terry Gilliam or Christopher Nolan. You can read my review of Insomnia here if you want a good place to start.
Here then is the complete list of Movie Hour podcasts, including the most recent episode on Highlander, with links to all my accompanying reviews. As and when any further specials are planned, I'll announce them here, but for now - that's all folks!
