Still Watching the Skies: Episode 8 – The World, the Flesh, and the Devil
This month Nat, Cody, and Robert turn their attention to 1959’s post-apocalypse film The World, the Flesh, and the Devil starring the great Harry Belafonte, along with Inger Stevens and Mel Ferrer.
Our attention is firmly held by the remarkable Harry Belafonte. Learn how we react to the rest of the movie though, including our various reactions to the ending. Find out which one of these intrepid podcasters can actually sing. Did we find the musical numbers that were incorporated into the film worked or did they stick out like a sore thumb? How did we evaluate way the film explored the racial tensions of the time? And, perhaps most importantly, is getting a haircut sexy?
All those questions and more are answered with the latest episode. Give us a play or Download the episode. Also, feel free to let us know what you think below or Email Us at [email protected] as we appreciate feedback.
Also, be sure to check out Nat’s appearance on the Director’s Club as he discusses the work of John Huston.
Next month we watch David Bowie pay the Earth a visit in The Man Who Fell to Earth. We hope you’ll join us.
