)-- Robert Altman’s classic 1971 revisionist Western ‘McCabe & Mrs. Miller’ will be the subject of a special 2-hour tribute show hosted by Movie Geeks United!, a movie-themed podcast available for free on the internet and iTunes, on Sunday, March 1 at 6pm EST.
“The cinema of the 1970s has often been defined as the art form’s last golden age,” says show writer, producer and co-host Jamey DuVall. “’McCabe & Mrs. Miller’ will headline the debut episode of our monthly series dedicated to some of that decade’s greatest films.”
Guests include the film’s legendary producer David Foster, co-star Corey Fischer, author Robert T. Self (Robert Altman’s ‘McCabe & Mrs. Miller’: Reframing the American West), and acclaimed film critic Doug Pratt.
The podcast will include explorations of director Altman and stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, and the social climate that informed the picture’s singular tone.
During live broadcasts, listeners may converse with other film fans in the chat room or call in with their own questions at 718-508-9477.
