    HOW AWFUL ABOUT ALLAN with Sherry Vine

    HOW AWFUL ABOUT ALLAN with Sherry Vine

    A 1970 made-for-TV offering in the style of What’s the Matter With Helen? and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, this one subs Anthony Perkins into what is usually the “old lady in peril” role. It also stars Julie Harris and Joan Hackett, and to discuss the melodramatic thrills, we have the wonderful Sherry Vine — drag queen, comedian and frequent collaborator of Sam’s in campy live stagings of classic sitcommery. They make delightful conversation.

    THE SCREAMING WOMAN with Janie Haddad Tompkins

    There’s a woman in trouble and her only hope for rescue is… Olivia de Havilland, a former asylum patient whose hands don’t work. This might seem like very bad odds for the woman in question, but don’t count Olivia de Havilland out yet: at a spry 104 years old, this Hollywood legend might just outlive us all. Actress, comedian and fellow screaming woman Janie Haddad Tompkins joins Sam to discuss this exciting entry in the “old ladies in peril” canon.

    THAT CERTAIN SUMMER with Bryan Safi

    THAT CERTAIN SUMMER with Bryan Safi

    Happy pride month! To celebrate the gayer side of made-for-TV magic, Sam is giving you the gift of a new episode that is not about a horror film. I know, I know. THAT CERTAIN SUMMER is a 1972 drama starring Hal Holbrook and Martin Sheen, and it’s the first teleplay to address the subject of homosexuality in a positive, sympathetic manner. It’s actually a good movie this time. Sam is joined by Bryan Safi — actor, comedian and host of the Throwing Shade podcast — to talk through this TV movie milestone. And no worries: We will be back next week with the first episode of the new season.

Guitarlily ,

This podcast is pure genius.

This podcast is absolutely the best and Sam is amazing. But the episode with Jackie Beat? I had the honor of playing a pride event with Jackie many years ago. What a great surprise to hear her in this context! The Ants episode with Sam and Jackie is pure brilliance. Can she be a regular guest, please?

Annnnnnnnaaaaaaaa ,

I haven’t gotten bored

Which is good, because when I get bored the game. is. over.

Absolutely love this show. I could listen to Sam Pancake all day. It’s like sitting in a living room on a rainy day, while someone smokes menthols in the next room.

stay do ,

🥰

Love this podcast! Also how about the movie “the plumber”.
