High and Low (Brow) – Episode 2 . 5 – Hide and Seek

Posted on Jun 4, 2010 by | 2 comments

And we’re back! After a slightly extended leave due to my attempts to purchase a house (word of warning, due to having purchased said house this might be the last HLB until well into July) James and I return for this episode of High and Low (Brow) whose theme was brilliantly concocted by one of our listeners, Mike Langlie. Without out a doubt Mike did a fantastic job and both James and I had a blast with the theme.

As for the actual films, for the second episode in a row we watch a made for TV film, this time the “lost” classic Bad Ronald which was produced by ABC waaaaaay back in 1974. And while James and I spend ample time reviewing the film, it also leads us into an interesting tangent about the disappearance of the network television movie and miniseries.

Following that we then review the Otto Preminger directed cult classic Bunny Lake is Missing, which features a host of outstanding performances, amazing cinematography and one heck of a modern marketing plan that crashed and burned back in 1965.

Then of course, make sure to stick around for the the selection segment of our show, as James and I manage to muck it up completely. Yet somehow we still manage to pull off selecting a pretty fascinating and compelling pair of films for the next show (whenever it just might be).

As always thanks for listening!

Opening Theme – Adonai by Ennio Morricone

I review movies. I run a movie theatre. I annoy people. I let my dogs lick my face whenever they want. Sometimes I'm even a halfway decent human.

  1. I suspect that the biggest part of the disappearance of made for tv movies from the networks is, essentially, cable and the splintering of the audience in general. Home video probably has something to do with it as well. There’s still the occasional mini-series, but nothing like in the 70s when you’d have stuff like The Night Stalker on a regular basis. Probably because the audience just isn’t there to support the production values anymore.
