Podcasts for Classic Film Fans: February Round-up

Before I start with this month’s recommendations, I want to briefly mourn the end of one of my favorite podcasts Switchblade Sisters. The last episode will drop on February 25. I’ve featured some of the more classic-leaning episodes of the show in my round-up before. I was always grateful for the thoughtful insights from host April Wolfe and her guests. I highly suggest listening to the archives of the podcast if you enjoy genre film. 

I also recommend this week's episode, featuring director Nora Unkel talking about The Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

I Saw What You Did

Bill Gunn. Kathleen Collins. Two filmmakers who would have set the world on fire if they were white. Gunn knew it and he spoke out about it. We can still appreciate their accomplishments. This episode is a great place to start. Such a gorgeous tribute. I'm grateful for this show.

The always insightful Jourdain Searles talks about her favorite Cicely Tyson performances. This brief episode was just what I needed to process the passing of this prolific and profound actress. 

The Film Programme

I had a huge grin on my face while listening to this interview with Leslie Caron. She speaks elegantly and affectionately about her career, including her time dancing with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. I imagined her dressed in a Chanel suit, touching the rim of a teacup as she reminisced. Such class and intelligence.
