Episode 99 - Michael Curtiz
No bah hum-buggin around Director's Club this time of year. I managed to enlist two of my favorite people to listen to -- of course, former co-host and podcast emeritus Patrick Ripoll is back not only for Episode 99, but for Episode 100 in January! Also recruited this time is the great Sergio Mims of WHPK, who always comes on this time of year to talk about a classic director. This time, we're focusing on the anti-auteur Michael Curtiz. Yes, he did CASABLANCA, one of the greatest films ever made, but we touch on a myriad of other titles including THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ELIZABETH & ESSEX, THE SEA HAWK, THE BREAKING POINT, FLAMINGO ROAD, DODGE CITY and so much more!
There's a brief mention of STAR WARS at the very end as well as a welcome (?) digression Jim and Patrick style as they attempt to wrap things up. The big news is that Episode 100 is finally arriving in two weeks. It will be a combination Best of 2015 episode of course, but joining us is friend and favorite Bill Ackerman, who will be asking us questions about what it's like hosting Director's Club. Please submit your list of Favorite Films from 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must get your emails in by Sunday, January 3rd at midnight!
