Pedro is gone this week which it’s fair to assume he took Walker’s money in Point Blank! While he’s gone they discuss that crime classic while also listening to The Cramps. Then they do a deep dive into the British crime series, Prime Suspect, starring Helen Mirren. (The talk is almost entirely about the first season, but nobody spoils the ending.) Get excited!
In the end of his career, John Ford made one more powerhouse movie by teaming up two of the greatest actors of the generation. Neither John Wayne or Jimmy Stewart play Liberty Valance, but maybe one of them was the man who shot him. The guys dive into what Ford is saying about his western legacy, the end of an era and the myth of morality. But it wouldn’t be a successful take on a team-up if they didn’t have a team-up of their own. Enter…Eric’s dad, Ray Martindale!
