Essential Listening for Everyone Who Enjoys Classic Movies!

Excellent discussion of Golden Age Hollywood (and more broadly classic 20th century cinema) with exciting guests that Kristen expertly interviews, each movie is evaluated with a good balance of reverence and incisiveness and digs deep into exactly the particulars that will be of interest to fans of classic movies or film in general - expect knowledgeable, passionate film folks whose conversation will nimbly communicate what it is that makes you love, as well as provide new insights into, your favorite movies.
