Episode #26 is here, and it marks our one year anniversary! Yes, believe it or not, this insanity has been going on for an entire year! And still no bloodshed or emergency room visits!
To celebrate this twelve-month miracle we are bringing you a classic HYSTO episode…with just a couple of extra, gorgeous little things…
Our first film is Paul’s choice, the POW camp film Stalag 17, a 1953 gem by acclaimed director Billy Wilder. I had heard great things about this one, but somehow never saw it…until now!
My choice this time around was the 1987 scifi film The Hidden, starring Twin Peak‘s Kyle Maclachlan and Flashdance‘s Michael Nouri.
Later, we each divulge which films were our tip-top tortures and treasures, I give Paul a quiz about films we have covered, and (of course) we announce which films are up for discussion for episode #27.
We had a really, really good time recording this one. Paul even brought some bubbly (sparkling water) and, since it is our anniversary, I gave Paul jewelry (a Ring Pop, to be exact…strawberry). This is a party you won’t want to miss!
Hello HYSTO-philes! Episode #24 is here, and it’s classic HYSTO all the way! This time around I make Paul watch the 1933 film Baby Face starring Barbara Stanwyck in one of her finest pre-code roles.
Paul’s choice for me this time around is 1998’s Kissing A Fool, starring Brandon Lee (Chasing Amy) and David Schwimmer of Friends fame.
We also talk about what we’re watching lately and, of course, what we are making each other watch for next time in episode #25. Did we choose treasure or torture films for each other? Join us to find out!
