Is Indiana Jones a real hero in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Who or what is a Denhom Elliot? How did Humphrey Bogart die in The Treasure of Sierra Madre? Why did Bogart become an A-lister and Tim Holt become a B-western star? And what does Geoffrey Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales have to do with it all? These and other questions are answered in my first podcast for my new show POP ART.
You can find it at https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/hcasner65579 or at YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZjXu5x1xYI. The idea behind Pop Art is for my guest to choose a movie from popular culture and then I will choose one with some sort of connection to it from the more artistic side of cinema. My first guest, Donald McKinney, chose the exciting blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. In turn I chose the John Huston/Humphrey Bogart masterpiece, The Trasure of the Sierra Madre, both stories about the search for treasure. Have a listen, tell me what you think, feedback is welcome. The first episode is a bit glitchy editing wise, my first effort, but I shall get better.
