POP ART: Episode 14: Dumb and Dumber/Too Late For Tears

“Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?” Running a bit short of money these days? What would you do if, out of nowhere, you suddenly found a large amount of money in your possession?  Find out what others have done in Episode 14 of my podcast Pop Art where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I choose a film from the more classic/art side of cinema. This time my guest, Hollywood hyphenate actor/writer/director/producer Alan Ritchson (his latest project Cicada 3301 will be released…well, when this quarantine thingy lets up) chose the Farrelly brothers first film, the outrageous farce Dumb and Dumber, and I chose the film noir cult classic Too Late For Tears, both about people who find themselves suddenly in possession of a great deal of filthy lucre. And in this episode we answer such questions as Why did Jeff Daniels only get $50,000 to do the movie while Jim Carrey got $7 million? What is the appeal of Jim Carrey? How does Clint Eastwood fit in and what does it have to do with toilets? What is the appeal of film noir? How were women seen in the 1940s and 1950s? What is a Dan Duryea and would you want to be one? And don’t forget to LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW.

Up next: Get Out/Upstream Color, two films about mind control.
