Dan and Cat do a careful analysis of Hitchcock’s 1941 romcom Mr and Mrs Smith in a bid to determine the exact quantities of both rom and com in the film. Along the way, they discuss soup-eating cats, artificial intelligence, Idaho’s breakout superstar Mr Deever and much more.
Cat and Dan reveal a harrowing tale of how they came to podcast this episode on Hitchcock’s short propaganda film Bon Voyage from 1944. But then, just as we’re finishing up, a French intelligence officer reveals that not everything is as it seemed…
Forgive us, listeners, for we have podcasted. Podcasted about ‘I Confess’ from 1953, to be precise. In this episode we discuss religious bicycle maintenance, buddy cop spin-offs, Cat’s new stretch goal – CliftPod, and much, much more.
G’day mates! Here’s a fair dinkum Aussie episode about an old Hitcho flick called Under Capricorn. Strewth! Crack open a tinnie and have a bloody good listen.
Right. Enough of that. In this episode we are no more Australian than usual as we discuss Under Capricorn, including sloppy horsemanship, Monty Python skits, the perils of being an ex-convict and much, much more.
Dan’s defected behind the iron curtain and Cat’s followed him there to record this episode on 1966’s Torn Curtain. While trying to escape back to the West, they discuss tractor exposition, makeshift farmhouse weaponry and the art of employing writers to distract Paul Newman.
Give a man and a woman enough Rope and they’ll podcast about it. That’s exactly what we’re doing here, talking about Hitchcock’s 1948 film. We discuss prequel trailers, monogrammed hats, substitutes for cigarette cases and much, much more.
We’ve recorded our entire 37th episode in 3/4 time, because we’re discussing Waltzes from Vienna from 1934. We cover all aspects of the film, including which of the Strausses might have unleashed a diss track on the other, the perils of playing a literal second fiddle, the differences between bakers and bankers and much more.
Here’s episode 36 of HitchPod, in which we go all the way back to look at The Lodger. We discuss spontaneous lynch mobs, a secret Colgate sponsorship, human mannequins, Smokey and the Bandit and much, much more.
It’s the 35th episode of HitchPod and we’re stammering and blushing and forgetting all our lines as we discuss Stage Fright, from 1950. Is this Hitchcock’s best ‘minor movie’? Can 2020 vision be applied to film techniques from seventy years earlier? And in what way does an actor from this movie remind us of an England cricket captain? All these questions and more are answered.
