Buster Keaton – The Great Stone FoxiTunes ♦ Stitcher Google Play Player FM ♦ TuneIn

On today’s show, it’s our annual TCM Film Fest preview! The Fest begins this Thursday, April 6th, and continues through Sunday, April 9th. Helping listeners navigate the ins and outs of this year’s program, is a very special guest – TCM Saturday Daytime Host, Tiffany Vazquez. Tiffany joins host, Lady P, and Flixwise regular, Kristen Sales, to offer up suggestions on what to see from this year’s roster of great films. They talk about what attendees can expect as they run back and forth between the great movie palaces of Hollywood Boulevard, and also discuss this year’s theme, “Make Em Laugh”, and why our collective classic film loving heart needs a slate of comedy offerings right about now.

And lest we forget, there’s also a Sight and Sound movie to cover. This time it’s the 59th film on the Critics’ Poll, Buster Keaton’s 1924 feature, Sherlock Jr. Brace yourself for some serious giddiness, because Lady P and Kristen lavish more effusive praise on this movie than just about any film they ever discussed on this podcast – and if you’ve listened to the Jeanne Dielman episode, you know they go hard for movies they really like. They delve into Buster’s precision both as a performer and as a director, his persona and how it compares to his contemporaries, and why cinephiles in particular are so fond of Sherlock Jr. Plus, the gals spend a good amount of time talking about Buster’s most important asset: his beautiful face.

But wait, there’s more! Make sure to check your feeds for more updates from TCMFF.  Kristen and Lady P will be releasing special minisodes throughout the weekend with recaps and highlights direct from the Fest.

    Enjoyed this episode so much. My children (aged 13 & 16) and I saw several Buster Keaton films, including Sherlock Junior, about 15 years ago at the New Victory Theatre in NY. The music was provided by a bluegrass band called Blue Grassy Knoll. The three of us laughed so much, and so hard, that we had to take several minutes to catch our breath at the end of the program. Pure genius, both timeless and accessible to people of any and all ages.
