Pop quiz: What show features discussions about the great Motown artist Barrett strong, founding member of The Eagles Randy Meisner, Tony Bennett, Pee-wee Herman, the director of The Exorcist and The French Connection, a rock musical parody of The Exorcist, Dean’s final (?) “X-Files” improv (at a forthcoming “X-Files” convention), and the classic comedy films of Jacques Tati? Answer: This week’s brand new Season 3 Episode 81 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
The USA celebrated its independence this weekend, but the fireworks continue on this brand new installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour! Dean shares a hysterical story about the making of a film he did many years back. Then he and Phil discuss in detail a wide array of movies, including a silent classic from Hitchcock, a current horror sequel, a masterpiece of surrealism from a Swedish filmmaker who has emerged as a titan of world cinema, and a low-budget sci-fi film from last year that was among 2020’s best. Plus, Phil wants to talk about a new TCM neo-noir series and a classic from 1967 starring Lee Marvin, but even more than that, he wants to talk about a conversation he had with longtime TCM host Ben Mankiewicz at a memorial for 106 year old legend Norman Lloyd. Phil also shares anecdotes involving many of the notables in attendance, including an Oscar-winning director, and the great grandson of one the most famous artists of all time, and Elliot Gould! All that, plus Dean is doing a show about haunted houses?!
