Welcome, HYSTOphiles! In Episode #167 we are celebrating the comedy acting of the ever-famous Marilyn Monroe, more precisely two comedies that she made in the year 1953 that are two of my FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!!! And joining us for the fun is our dear friend Kellie Arnold!

Marilyn was an amazing comedian, and these two films really shine a light on that talent!

First up is Gentlemen Prefer Blondeswhich also stars the fabulous Jane Russell!

No, really! You’re both in this!

To keep the fun going we also discuss Marilyn’s next film, How To Marry A Millionaire! This one stars Marilyn, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable!

A Millionaire Murderer’s Row…

Add to that us all talking about what’s keeping us entertained lately, and Keith telling me what’s in store for me next time around, and we have quite the movie party! We really hope you join us because we really do want to know…

Have You Seen This One?

Happy New Year, HYSTO-philes! Welcome to Episode #166! Keith chose our movie this time around, and his pick was 2008’s Role Models, starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott!

Paul and Seann, not looking so sure about their choice this time. (Yes, we see you back there, Keegan-Michael Key…)

I, of course, had never seen this film, so Keith was anxious to see what I thought…and you’ll have to listen to find out!

Naturally we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I let Keith know what iconic Hollywood actress’ work we will be watching for our next episode. (HINT: 1953)

We really hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…
