A new monthly category for the podcast is going to be an exploration of three different films from a specific film director. I’m calling the section “Three by…”. The three films will be sample representation from the director’s entire body of work and/or some of my favorite films from the director.
This month’s director is Carl Reiner. Reiner passed away this summer at the ripe old age of 98. Turner Classic Movies recently had a tribute day where they showed six of his films. I recorded them on my DVR and finally had a chance to watch the three films which I discuss in the podcast, each from a different decade of his career: Enter Laughing (1967), Oh, God! (1977), and All of Me (1984).
