Movie Meltdown - Episode 355

This week we welcome two guest co-hosts, as the stars of Night of the Comet reunite to put together this special episode. Join us as we sit down with Kelli Maroney and Catherine Mary Stewart and discuss not only their classic movie, but also what it's been like to be adopted sisters all these years. Then we settle in for this week's Sofa Theater feature, the 1940 George Cukor film The Philadelphia Story.

So come on all you teenage comet zombies, and listen as we mention... a dog with a fez, a time of great affluence and fun, Howard Hughes, scaled down riches, I still believe in the glamour of the business, a lyrical very beautiful take on a sci fi experience, grabbed her by the face, Rage for Fame: The Ascent of Clare Boothe Luce, so much class in our business, that failure niche, those eyelashes cracked me up, it was devastating that I couldn't - like, nobody cared, nobody cared that my life had changed forever, at least have an expression on your face, the greatest thing in the world is watching privileged people enjoy their privileged lives, Spencer Tracy, we're not even the same species, acting is an outlet, box office poison, Jane Fonda, that's what life's about is making connections, there are just some costumes that are impractical for large crowds, or if your outfit requires a wheel barrel and... that's impossible - give me an uzi.

Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for the 1940 movie The Philadelphia Story. So go watch it ahead of time for spoiler-free listening!

"...when you went to a movie... you went to escape. You went... for an hour or two, to escape into the lives of these glamorous - almost unrealistic people."
