In “Live Event of the Week”, Dean previews an interview with a very musical guest coming up on next week’s show, and Phil reviews a stage show he first spoke about in episode #265! After that, they tackle the coronavirus, and how it’s affecting movie-going, film distribution, family travel and handshake lines! A ground-breaking, and little-known trailblazer of the movie industry gets championed 25 years after his death and that leads into “Celebrity Deaths” wherein a chart-topping singer, a beloved TV mom, a jazz great and the creator and longtime host of “Inside the Actors Studio” get remembered. All that, plus we get MUCH better acquainted with Dean (and a little bit better acquainted with Phil)!
From killer bees to climate change to record setting sales prices for Hollywood mansions, it seems like the whole word has gone mad! Fortunately, your friends in podcasting embrace their own madness just enough to help make sense of a world gone wild! This week, Dean and Phil will also discuss this weekend’s big cinematic release, The Call of the Wild, and a 3D musical film from 1953! They will also remember groundbreaking music, stage and screen performers. All that, plus a bunch of laughs.
In the second of two face-to-face episodes recorded this past week while Dean was in Los Angeles, your friends in podcasting discuss two “Celebrity Deaths” and three current cinematic releases. The creator of “SpongeBob SquarePants” and the woman who co-wrote “American Graffiti” and who gave Princess Leia her fighting, courageous spirit are the celebrities remembered by Dean and Phil. The documentary “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead” (about Orson Welles’ 15 year-long effort to make the unparalleled “The Other Side of the Wind”), the heist thriller “Widows” from director Steve McQueen (“Shame”, “12 Years a Slave”) and “If Beale Street Could Talk” from director Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”) are the movies Dean and Phil go into great depth discussing. on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
This week’s episode was delayed by half a day because Dean Haglund is spending his final hours Down Under in a hotel, and because Phil hosted a live show in Los Angeles on Sunday night. On our final intercontinental connection, Dean and Phil discuss the last entries in Dean’s Down Under Bucket List and Phil’s love for the great western star Leo Carrillo. In “Live Events of the Week” the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 100, Herbie Hancock, Katy Perry, Kali Uchis, John Williams and more get discussed. In “Lawsuit of the Week” 102 year-old Olivia De Havilland’s forthcoming appearance before the U.S. Supreme Court gets previewed. And speaking of the Supreme Court … Your friends in podcasting offer up some words they hope might be healing. Then, they turn their attention to the small screen to discuss “Stranger Things” and “The Man in the High Castle” before discussing such big screen releases as American Animals, Venom and A Star is Born. Finally, a legendary animator, and several key figures in the history of modern music are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. So, sit back, relax and enjoy that Didgeridoo intro one final time …
