Gobbledygeek: Now the Fun Begins


The Biff Bam Pop! Podcast Network presents Gobbledygeek featuring hosts Paul Smith and AJ Wiley and focusing on a variety of entertainment subjects, with our hosts and special guests frequently discussing films, comics, and television.

This week, Hitchcock Month continues as the Gobbledygeeks, along with special guest Joseph Lewis, take on the films Rope and Rear Window. See and hear more after the jump.

Episode 265 of Gobbledygeek is described here: “Three men. One room. Now the fun begins. (Feel free to interpret that any way you wish.) Hitchcock Month continues, as A/V writer-director Joseph Lewis drops by to discuss 1948’s Rope, wherein John Dall and Farley Granger’s perfect murder is in danger of being unraveled by Jimmy Stewart; and 1954’s Rear Window, in which Stewart’s busted-up photographer spies on his neighbors, including a potentially murderous Raymond Burr. Paul, AJ, and Joe discuss the one-take gimmickry of Rope and how it translates the stage to screen; the homosexual subtext (or text) of that film; what Hitchcock had to say about voyeurs; and Hitch’s subversive casting of the all-American Jimmy Stewart.” All this and more can be found right here.
