In the latest episode, of the Film Freaks Forever podcast, we discuss the fascinating phenomenon of movies that bombed at the box office on their initial release and then later found adoring audiences and now are acclaimed classics. Films from “The Princess Bride” to “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Brazil” to “Heathers” have suffered this way. Phoef Sutton and Mark Jordan Legan focus on four films that are now beloved classics that certainly laid a box office egg back in the day. These films cover the 1930s, the 1950s, and then a fascinating year in cinema, 1999.

Our newest episode is now out & we honor four legendary performers who recently passed away after very long lives & very distinguished careers – we honor & discuss Cicely Tyson, Hal Holbrook, Cloris Leachman & Christopher Plummer!
We take you from the 1930’s through the 1960’s/1970’s, into the new millennium, and then we end with a very recent comedy from 2019. Everyone from W.C. Fields to Carole Lombard to Peter Cook to Elaine May to Eugene Levy to Kaitlyn Dever are discussed with many other cohorts of comedy.
Just like they do in heist movies, your Film Freaks quietly and meticulously planned this podcast, wearing masks, gloves, speaking in code, all the while planning the ultimate heist episode. Enjoy the thrills and chills of staying one step ahead of the authorities as Phoef and Mark take you through some of the best heist movies ever made – from the 1950’s all the way through to today. Everyone from Sterling Hayden, Marilyn Monroe, Alec Guinness, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Robert Redford, and Jeremy Renner show up to prove that crime doesn’t pay (well, most of the time).
Warning: This episode contains some clips that have strong language.
A wonderful collection of films. And Mark Jordan Legan C Courtney Joyner and myself (Phoef Sutton) do a commentary on one of films, the underrated thriller THE SNORKEL. It would make a good Xmas gift for the FILM FREAK in your life!
