Episode 174: John Amplas & The Gangster Film
On this episode of The Bonus Material Podcast, Thom Carnell & Langley J West welcome back a friend and returning guest, actor / director, John Amplas. John is best known as someone who has appeared in a variety of genre films (such as George Romero's MARTIN, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and DAY OF THE DEAD), but he's hear to talk about another of his passions... and that's the one he has for The Gangster Film. So, we'll discuss everything from Paul Muni's SCARFACE to Al Pacino's... and focus on the careers of cinema tough guys like George Raft, Humphrey Bogart, and Edward G Robinson. From THE BIG HEAT and LITTLE CAESAR to GOODFELLAS and CASINO, we'll try to talk about them all! After the break, Thom & Langley return to go over news, review some trailers, and make a few recommendations.
