The George Sanders Show: Episode Three – Charade and The Truth About Charlie

This week, on the occasion of the release of a 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray of Stanley Donen’s classic suspense thriller/romantic comedy, Mike and I decided to talk about Charade and its remake, Jonathan Demme’s much-maligned 2002 film The Truth About Charlie. We also discuss our own Essential Remakes, what to get at the big Criterion DVD sale, the career of Stanley Donen and the intentionality of Marky Mark Wahlberg’s hats.

You can subscribe to the show in iTunes, or download it directly from our website.

Next week: We head to Thailand to escape Ryan Gosling and Only God Forgives by watching the Chang Cheh Shaw Brothers film Duel of Fists, starring Ti Lung and David Chiang, along with Wisit Sananatieng’s award-winning Thai Western Tears of the Black Tiger from 2000.
