[6 mins.] Author Glenn Frankel (“High Noon”, “The Searchers”) returns to the podcast with his latest book “Shooting Midnight Cowboy: Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and the Making of a Dark Classic” (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2021). Frankel’s book tells the story of a modern classic that, by all accounts, should never have become one in the first place. The film’s boundary-pushing subject matter—homosexuality, prostitution, sexual assault—earned it an X rating when it first appeared in cinemas in 1969. I am joined once again by the co-host with definitely the most, actor/author/film historian Illeana Douglas for this delightful conversation. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

[8 mins.] The actor, podcaster, author & film historian Illeana Douglas (“To Die For”, “Goodfellas”) makes her first appearance on the podcast. Illeana recently wrote a most readable best selling memoir called “I Blame Dennis Hopper” which I highly recommend. She is also the host of the video/audio podcast “The Film Scene with Illeana Douglas” which is part of the Popcorn Talk podcast network. And, oh yeah, she’s starred in countless movies and episodics over the course of her illustrious career. She has many many wonderful anecdotes and just brings an enthusiasm and spirit to the episode for which I am most grateful. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

Illeana Douglas, Part 2 – “Meeting Marlon” – TWP035
What would you think if someone told you that you were about to meet your idol? How would you prepare? What would you wear? What would you say? Illeana shares a hilarious and heartwarming story about finding herself in exactly this situation when, one day, she realized she would be meeting Marlon Brando. And Branan shares a story about his own (rather embarrassing) brush with fame.
Illeana Douglas, Part 1 – “I Blame Dennis Hopper” – TWP034
Illeana Douglas wasn’t always a movie star, but her life has always been strangely intertwined with the American cinema. In fact, long before she knew she wanted to act, her life was forever changed when her parents saw the 1969’s indie “Easy Rider” and decided it was time to become hippies. Join us as we hear Illeana explain how her conservative, Connecticut childhood was ruined, how her father drove goats around town in a station wagon, and how her life was set on a course of creativity that will leave you astounded, perhaps asking yourself if there really is a design to our lives.
