Ep. 31

Cine-Lit heads back to the crime vault for this latest podcast.

Adam & Darrell look at an unusual period in Walter Matthau's career. Known for his comedy roles in films like The Fortune Cookie and The Odd Couple, Matthau took a sharp turn into crime territory with a three-film run between 1973 and 1974.

Cine-Lit looks at this short blip (Charley Varrick, The Laughing Policeman and The Taking Of Pelham 123) in closer detail.
