Episode 27: Remakes for the Better 2
The Flight of the Phoenix: 1965 clashing with 2004. Another comparative episode! L.B. Jeff Jeffries tries to out-fly Doc Holiday. It hasn’t been long, but the time was made nigh since we recently lost the great & almost immortal Ernest Borgnine. We thought it appropriate to discuss something from his massive canon. Plus, it’s a great chance to compare actors that otherwise might never have been associated with each other.
Unlike our last foray (stage play to movie) this IS an actual remake. Although drawn from the same screenplay, they each provide impressive substance & reflection of their contemporary culture. Both need to be seen; it doesn’t matter which version becomes your favorite. The performances are enough to do it again. We compare, we contrast and we even get in a few Jimmy Stewart jokes, so thank you again for flying Cinema Slut airlines. Please strap in & hold on to your butts… it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
