Episode #39 is “So Big” it’s “Giant”…

Lobby card for “Giant” featuring James Dean (1956)

Hello HYSTO friends! We’re back with Episode #39, and it’s so, so, “So Big” it’s “Giant!”

Our first movie of interest is “South Central” starring Glenn Plummer (of “Showgirls” fame) and Christian Coleman as his son “Jimmie”…

 

“And the award for worst performance in a movie by a child actor goes to….”

Next, we visit the 1956 classic “Giant” starring Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Dean. It’s based on the novel by Edna Ferber, who also wrote “Cimmaron” and “So Big“…

We also discuss what’s up for our next episode (#40!), what we’ve been consuming video-wise, and, of course, we somehow manage to bring up The Room again…

Won’t you join us?
