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.

In 1952, just after Gene Kelly's An American in Paris was regaled with Oscar glory, producer Arthur Freed created the first "jukebox" musical that tore through the MGM songbook for unused songs and constructed a story around them set in in the late 1920s Hollywood during the transition from silent films to "talkies". Singin' in the Rain would become one of the most enduring musicals of all time and would become the launchpad for a young actress named Debbie Reynolds. But does the film deserve to prance in the puddles or is it a total wash? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris put on their dancing shoes to find out.
