Talking Movies, Episode 3: ‘Marty,’ ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ and ‘Ben-Hur’

In Episode 3 of Talking Movies, Scott and I discuss three Best Picture winners from the 1950s. What do these films suggest about the contemporary movie industry, which had to respond to the emergence of television? How did “The Epic” change the standards of production and studio spending? Who were the key players and victims of the Hollywood Blacklist and the House Un-American Activities Committee? What precipitated the fall of the Big Studio, as well as the arrival of Independent Cinema? Listen to a discussion of these topics and many more in Episode 3 of Talking Movies.

~ Talking Movies is a Retro-Reviewer.com podcast series covering classic films from the 20th century. In this episode, our guest co-host is Scott Feinberg, the lead awards analyst for The Hollywood Reporter and the founder/editor-in-chief of ScottFeinberg.com.
