POP ART: Episode 20, Jaws/White Hunter, Black Heart

NEW EPISODE: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Feeling a bit bored? Need some outside activity? Maybe you should take up hunting? If so, who would you want helping you? John Wilson or Quint? Sounds like the time for Episode 19 of Pop Art, the podcast where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I’ll select a film from the more art/classic side of cinema with a connection to it. This time, my guest, writer and filmmaker Steve Wise (the award winning Sur’vi, soon to be seen on Amazon), has chosen the Steven Spielberg game changing summer blockbuster Jaws, while I have chosen the Clint Eastwood movie nobody has seen or heard of, White Hunter Black Heart, both with stories about characters obsessed with hunting down wild beasts. And in this episode, we’ll answer such questions as: Why is the shark named Bruce? What did the IRS have to do with the casting? Who was supposed to originally play Quint? Why doesn’t Hooper die in the film? Why is Clint Eastwood so good in WH, BH? Who plays Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn? Has Clintwood ever lost a fight in his movies? And may more.

Up for a little competition? The quarantine got you playing games? The next episode of Pop Art is up at https://hcasner65579.podomatic.com/ as well as on Spotify, Anchor, Soundcloud and other streaming platforms. In Pop Art, my guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I chose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema. For this episode, my guest, filmmaker Michelle Ehlen (Butch Jamie, Heterosexual Jill, S&M Sally and the upcoming Maybe Someday), chose the brilliant, hysterical Christopher Guest ensemble comedy Best in Show and I chose the dark, trenchant, violent satire of reality shows Series 7: The Contenders, both mockumentaries about competitions. And in this show we deal with such issues as: Who gives the best performance in Best of Show and what does Joe Garagiola have to do with it? How long was the script for Best in Show? What does a pregnant woman want to eat after shooting someone in cold blood? How does Star Trek fit in? Don’t forget to comment, like and follow. Next up Robocop and THX 1138.
