WEEKLY SERIES BEGAN WITH 'BODY DOUBLE', CONTINUED WITH 'DRESSED TO KILL'
Would you look at that jacket worn by Dennis Franz as he channeled Brian De Palma while portraying a film director in Body Double? Then look at this picture from the set of The Bonfire Of The Vanities six years later...! De Palma as Franz as De Palma.
Body Double is the film that kicked off "De Palma December" on the weekly podcast, Cinema Recall, two Fridays ago:
We begin the month of December by covering the films of director Brian DePalma. He has been compared to Alfred Hitchcock but many of his films are a lot more mature in content. Not only does he direct thrillers, but he has worked in horror, action, dramas, and musicals too.
On this episode, Ryan of Coolness Chronicles and Reels of Justice returns to discuss DePalma's homage to Hitchcock's Rear Window and Vertigo with Body Double. Listen to him and The Vern go over moments of this intricate thriller.
This past Friday, the podcast covered De Palma's Dressed To Kill, with special guest Jeanette Miller Mickenham.
