High and Low (Brow) – Series 4 Ep 6 – Psycho Biddies
And we’re back! In spite of a early May shower, James braved the elements and once again we have put out an episode relatively on time. It’s a Minnesota miracle! But besides that we have a jam packed episode of High and Low (Brow) as James and I discuss the Minnesota State Legislature, I give him two assignments for James Gillham: Pop Culture Guru and we all finally learn why James is afraid of naked women. Yeah, it’s going to be that kind of sure.
Besides the extra curricular activities, James and I get down to brass tacks and tackle this episodes theme, Psycho Biddies. For those of you who have no idea what that is,it is essentially a movie about a crazy old woman. What? I totally swear it is! Anyways, in this episode of High and Low (Brow) we review two Psycho Biddy movies, the first being the Hammer film The Nanny, starring the great Bette Davis. Follow that we track down the lesser known Lady in a Cage, which starts the always great Olivia de Havilland and an incredibly young James Caan.
One thing before we finish, if you have listened to the Twilight Commentary track that James and I recorded last month, we’d both love feedback on it. What you liked or didn’t like, and what you’d like us to focus more or less on when we do future commentary tracks. In spite of hating the film I had a lot of fun recording it so I’m hoping we’ll work it into our repertoire on a more frequent basis.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for High and Low (Brow), or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas.
