All About Eve (w/ Natalie Gardner)

Natalie Gardner joins Liam to discuss the 1950 film All About Eve, a giant film of the 1950's, getting a record amount of Academy Award nominations. Directed by Joseph Mankiewicz starring the amazing Bette Davis (who we particularly gush over in the episode) as Margo Channing, a highly regarded but aging Broadway star and Anne Baxter playing Eve Harrington, an ambitious young fan who manoeuvres herself into Channing's life, ultimately threatening Channing's career and her personal relationships in seeking fame and fortune as an actress in Broadway. It also features an early onscreen debut of icon Marilyn Monroe.

Elevator to the Gallows (w/ Brandon Kahn)

We're back! But instead of our scheduled miniseries episode we are taking a a small detour to explore some other films of the 50s, while Ollie is busy with his new music video. Brandon Kahn is here and he has brought along a 1958 French Noir classic which can be seen as a precursor to the French New Wave, Elevator to the Gallows, where two lovers' seemingly perfect murder plan goes awry due to a broken elevator, which sets off a chain of events though one night in Paris. Directed by Louis Malle and stars Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet but is probably best known for a ground-breaking haunting soundtrack which was improvised by Jazz legend Miles Davis.
