The Industry is a podcast that takes a closer look at some of the lesser know (and sometimes intentionally forgotten) stories of Hollywood. Insane productions, scandalous lawsuits, victories from the jaws of defeat (and vice versa), and maybe the occasional crime are the order of the day here. Each episode takes one topic and attempts to answer "What were they thinking?" Feel free to contact me with questions (or complaints) at dan@theindustrypodcast.com

    The Other John Barry

    The Other John Barry

    John Barry is a deeply respected set designer, responsible for the Korova Milk Bar in A Clockwork Orange, the cantina in Star Wars, and the Fortress of Solitude in Superman, among other starkly original film locales. But when it came time to make his own film, Saturn 3, things fell apart.
    The setup for Saturn 3 is fine: Farrah Fawcett and Kirk Douglas are a May-December Adam and Eve in space. Then Harvey Keitel arrives. With a clumsy robot.
    John Barry escaped from Saturn 3 just in time to work on the sequel to Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back. But from there, his story took a tragic turn.

Great stories and production

I'm no longer in the biz but I love the industry. Just started listening but I have a feeling this will be one of my regular pods.

Music Reader ,

The podcast I’ve been waiting for!

So glad the show’s back!! There are a lot of movie podcasts out there, but finally someone is telling the stories I’m dying to hear: the real “inside baseball” of the movie industry. I love that he finds niche stories I’ve never heard of, especially oral histories of failed/shelved projects! Keep ‘em coming.
