Welcome. You’re listening to Reel Charlie Speaks, an LGBTQ podcast spin-off of the film and television review blog, Reel Charlie looking at movies and TV from a gay male perspective since 2009. I'm your host, Philip Bahr. Each month I select a classic queer film, television series, or creator. I talk about how the subject spoke to me when I first discovered it years ago, and how its stood the test of time. In episode 10 I explore two classic films from the master, Alfred Hitchcock. First up, Rope (1948), followed by Strangers on a Train (1951). Both films boast lesbian and gay writers, both star bisexual actor Farley Granger, and both feature queer male relationships during a time when Hollywood was contained by the Hays Code. Currently the films are available to stream on various platforms for a rental fee and on disk from your local library. Perfect reason to hold on to your disk player. Corrections: Not sure why I kept wanting to say Bruner instead of Bruno. I lived in New York City during the 1990's, not the 2000's. I Confess is the name of the Hitchcock film where Montgomery Clift plays a priest.  http://www.alfredhitchcock.com/life-and-legacy/filmography/ https://www.britannica.com/biography/Alfred-Hitchcock https://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/person/87065%7C10493/Alfred-Hitchcock/#filmography https://ew.com/movies/every-alfred-hitchcock-movie-ranked/ Reel Charlie's review of Rope: https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/2014/04/06/rope-the-masterpiece-collection/ Reel Charlie's review of Strangers on a Train: https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/strangers-on-a-train-blu-ray/ Reel Charlie's all things Hitchcock: https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/category/directors-alfred-hitchcock/ https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/2022/08/29/reel-charlie-speaks-podcast/ Music by Daddy_s_Music from Pixabay --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/reel-charlie-speaks/message

Making Love (dir. by Arthur Hiller, 1982)
Welcome. You’re listening to Reel Charlie Speaks, an LGBTQ podcast spin-off of the film and television review blog, Reel Charlie looking at movies and TV from a gay male perspective since 2009. I'm your host, Philip Bahr. Each month I select a classic queer film, television series, or creator. I talk about how the subject spoke to me when I first discovered it years ago, and how its stood the test of time. In episode 9 I explore the classic gay male film, Making Love from 1982. In addition to discussing the plot, I also talk about the film as melodrama, the fallout for the male actors, and why this movie often gets ignored in the queer canon of films.  Currently Making Love is unavailable to stream. Perfect reason to hold on to your disk player. Corrections: The director's name is not Arthur Hill, but Arthur Hiller. Personal Best is a very important LGBTQ film from this time period.  https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/making_love https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/making-love-1982 https://www.advocate.com/arts-entertainment/film/2012/07/14/how-making-love-changed-us https://communication.ucf.edu/screenwriter-barry-sandler-talks-about-film-making-love/ https://ew.com/movies/harry-hamlin-making-love-role-ended-film-career/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOl5reHeqTw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo1MGPTjrVQ Reel Charlie's 2015 review of Making Love: https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/2015/01/05/making-love/ https://reelcharlie.wordpress.com/2022/08/29/reel-charlie-speaks-podcast/ Music by Daddy_s_Music from Pixabay --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/reel-charlie-speaks/message
