Episode 131 - Vertigo and Obsession

 

Well, folks the dream has come true.  Dave actually got paid to watch a great movie AND talk about it! In this episode, we talk about the Alfred Hitchcock classic, Vertigo.  First, Britt simultaneously talks about the movie and tries to end her marriage by daring to speak ill of Jimmy Stewart.  How dare she!?  Then, Dave talks briefly about obsession.  Finally, Dave enlists the help of two fantastic podcasters, Mike and Web, to talk about one of the greatest films ever made.  And stay until the end for lots of out of context outtakes!

 

Special thanks to Andrew of the AB Film Review for sponsoring this episode!
