Episode 8 - Cornbread or Communion Wafers

Episode 8 of the podcast features two wonderful films ( this time we aren't putting that word in quotes ). The first film we cover is 1975's Poor Pretty Eddie, starring Shelley Winters, Leslie Uggams, Slim Pickens and Ted Cassidy. It is an amazingly twisty and twisted story of backwood, hayseed, intrigue that gets into some very surreal and uncomfortable areas. The second movie is 1976's Alice Sweet Alice which features Brooke Shields in her first film role. It is a striking film that deals with the murder of a child, and the turmoil that would arise from such a nightmarish situation, and the attempt to find out who was responsible. In a bit of a departure from the norm, both of these movies are great and we totally recommend them both to all of you. We hope you enjoy the conversation and please keep writing to us, perhaps with ideas for other undiscovered gems.
