Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

1939 was the dawn of a whole new generation of films that stretched the boundries of film. At MGM, two projects would change the world forever. The first took audiences to the fantasy world of Oz. The second, overseen by legendary producer David O. Selznick, would become one of the largest epics of all time: Grounded by superstars Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable, audiences were returned to the Deep South on the cusp of Civil War as one woman witnessed the passing of time and tradition while fighting for love and survival. But does the film deserve it's old glory or will it leave audiences whistlin' Dixie? Eric, Kent, & Lobster discuss the much lauded classic Gone with the Wind.

Show Notes: You can read Kevin Thomas' review of the film here.
