After several films from the golden age of the studio system, Trey Lawson and Lesley Coffin go more modern, dark, and cult with the 1965 film The Loved One, directed by Tony Richardson. Called the most offensive film, Although we start off feeling pretty good about the film, much like the movie, it ends with us feeling down. We discuss our love of a good cameo, some grotesque scenes, make an interesting comparison to Network and even stranger connection to The Blue Brothers.

A event long in the waiting, Lesley finally shows Joanna a Harold Lloyd movie as we play the first round of Buster Keaton vs Harold Lloyd. Friend Matthew joins us for this discussion of two of the best examples of classic silent film comedy, Safety Last (1923) and Sherlock Jr. (1924). The discussion gets passionate (warning, one of us is not a fan of Safety Last).

Joyce is back on the second episode along with our friend Vince to watch Libeled Lady...and we all LOVED IT! On this episode, Joyce makes a big announcement about the movie, we discuss the funnest fishing scene ever, talk about some pretty great clothing, chat about one of the best casts ever, praise the speed and rythm of the movie (and its amazing dialogue), call Spencer Tracy out for over acting (in a good way), get a little depressed about the movie's backstory, and we fall in love with William Powell. Libeled Lady was made in 1936, directed by Jack Conway and stars William Powell, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy, and Spencer Tracy (available on DVD)

On this first episode of the Classic Comedy Film Podcast, Joanna and Joyce are my guests to discuss The Philadelphia Story (1940). We all love the movie but find some of the politically incorrect moments pretty uncomfortable. We also discuss what might be the greatest drunk scene in movie history, share our love of the under-appreciated actresses Virginia Weidler and Ruth Hussey, hate the remake High Society, and analyze John Howard's character George. Plus, one costume causes a pretty funny reaction from everyone.
