More Cambridge & Wishon

Forgot to post episodes two and three, so here ya go! C&W will come out the first Tuesday of each month, barring any unforeseen obstacles. I will probably post the episodes here, but in case I forget you can always find it over on our Spreaker page, or your preferred podcast platform. 

S7E1. Oh, that's tacky: Murder by Death (1976)

We're knee deep in spoof territory over here at Weirding Way Media so why not keep the trend going? Mike White and Chris Stachiw join me to talk about an old favorite of mine, Murder by Death (1976). Written by Neil Simon and directed by Robert Moore, Murder by Death is a send-up of whodunits with some of our more well-known detectives getting the parody treatment. The film stars James Coco, Peter Falk, Elsa Lanchester, David Niven, Peter Sellers, and Maggie Smith as some suspiciously familiar faces. Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote, Alec Guinness, Richard Narita, Nancy Walker, and Estelle Winwood round out the cast in this murderous farce. Of course we discuss the problematic portrayal of an Asian character by Peter Sellers, so be warned!
