With a wealth of musicals, westerns, sci-fi films, epics, comedies, character dramas and samurai movies, the 1950s was an exciting time for cinema. Here at Easy Riders Raging Podcast we're looking back at all the classics of the decade, discussing the films of Hitchcock, Wilder, Kurosawa, Kubrick and more. Aside from our discussions, each episode includes some of our trademark features such as Recastarama (where we recast the film using current actors) and Who Am I (where we work out who we would be in the film). Lots of fun to be had. [Our 1960s and 1970s series are also available]

    In this short solo episode- the first in quite a while I think- I get into the festive spirit by talking about 'Scrooge', the 1951 adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. You can expect a combination of intelligent observations of this film as well as some stream of consciousness to go accompany your meal. Thanks for listening everyone and I'll be back in 2022 with more retro film chat.
