Murderous brothers can't keep a maid hidden in Fritz Lang's 1950 gothic noir, 'House By The River', and sexism runs rampant in 1939's 'Day-Time Wife', a film that's shocking for all the wrong reasons!

The show is on a temporary break (the school holidays are punishing!), but I just couldn't resist dropping in with an episode to keep you going! 

This slightly diet-edition version of the normal show features reviews of two classics, 1949's 'Whisky Galore' from Ealing, and 1958's 'Indiscreet', starring Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.

Also, I'll be giving you a very brief slice of Hollywood history, a whistle-stop story about a very famous screen credit...

3 Aug 2017 @ 01:00 am

In this week's show...

A new radio star has been born! (literally... I have proof!)

Who knew that boys toys could be for girls, too?

Someone's been visiting another podcast to talk about stuff. See if you can guess who...?

Who The Hell Is That Hollywood Legend will be over in a flash, so get your answers ready!

The Question Pot throws up all sorts of queries!

There's music from Cliff Edwards, Judy Garland, and the one and only Mr. George Formby!

PLUS reviews of two movies starring the inimitable Mr. Cary Grant. One is perhaps the romantic movie ever made (and reviewed in the most shamelessly romantic way possible), and the other features our hero as courtesan to a teenage girl (although it's not as weird as it sounds...)

It's all here as we embark upon Episode 77 of Attaboy Clarence!
