Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast
April 4, 2022
I was heartbroken to hear of Gilbert Gottfried passing. His podcast was one of my favorites; I have featured it many times on Watching Classic Movies. He was closing in on 700 episodes! What a loss to no longer have his voice. This was a great chat with You Must Remember This host Karina Longworth. His Dick van Dyke episode was legendary. Other memorable episodes: Carl Reiner, Stacy Keach, Malcolm McDowell, and married stars Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss.

I love this new show; it’s beautifully produced and host Jacqueline Stewart is an excellent interviewer. I was moved by the memories of the night Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Halle Berry all brought home Oscars. The sound of Berry’s emotional reaction to her win still moved me to tears; I remembered every sniffle.

The Godfather is so famous for being an ensemble piece; it was a treat to get a few personal memories from cast member Robert Duvall on the 50th anniversary of the film. In this brief episode he pays tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s sense of humor and remembers his favorite moments making the movie.

When I saw it in the theater, I thought the 1998 remake of Psycho was goofy and pointless. Only Millie and Danielle could make me suddenly so interested in seeing it again. In comparing the Van Sant film with the original, they find new things to consider about both versions.
