#6 - For Whom the Bell Rings with Andréa Burns

Movie Musical Madness

Drama Desk winner Andréa Burns loves Judy Holliday. Movie Musical Madness Host Mark Peikert loves Judy Holliday. And they both love Judy's starring turn in Bells Are Ringing—but do they love the 1960 movie? With Dean Martin coming across like a post-bender drunk, Frank Gorshin and Gerry Mulligan serving up mid-century sex, and plenty of awkward musical staging, there's a lot to discuss. Plus, Judy Holliday herself and Marlene Dietrich make special appearances!Produced by Dori Berinstein and Alan Seales for the Broadway Podcast Network. Learn more about your ad choices.
