On this week’s show I talk about the 1972 Sci-Fi classic, Silent Running. I start off by talking about how I miss the act of discovery and randomness with how I used to consume entertainment. Then I move on to the film and talk about the people who wrote it, the studio’s attempt at semi-independent films, the cast with special focus on Bruce Dern, the characters, the music, the FX and more.
Vic Sage is back with this week with another great “Why Should I Know this Person.” This Week Vic talks about the director of Silent Running, special effect maestro, Douglas Trumbull.
