This week, we put the spotlight on contemporary Hollywood's current love affair with Old Hollywood. We spelunk into the hole at the center of the Marilyn/Norma Jean enigma and unpack the symptoms of female movie star pathology and "I'm a star!" hysterics. We also discuss the security of artifice and the timeless allure of Golden Age red carpet styling. This very cinephilic episode features dialogues on recent hits such as Blonde and Pearl, upcoming titles like Babylon and Barbarella, and classics such as Spartacus and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
