The Industry



Season 1, Ep. 3

After earning massive success in the early 1970's with the movies The French Connection and The Exorcist, William Friedkin could call his own shots. For his next movie he decided on a remake of the 1953 French thriller The Wages of Fear.

What started out as a small budgeted movie turned ballooned into a never ending production with casting issues, unwelcoming locals, and uncooperative rivers.

Toby Roan of the Sorcerer Blog helps explain the mystique of this movie, which Friedkin considers his best.
