Episode 17: Who Is Number Fifteen?

Welcome back, everyone!

Forget your contemporary pop stars, why didn’t the ‘Spry’ song ever permeate the national consciousness?

Not only that, but it’s ‘Summer Money Time’, a time to be consistently interrupted.

Adam deals out lashings of High-Octane-80’s-High-Fives to all the good folk who’ve been making his days lately, and the Sexist Advertisement Klaxon once again rears its politically incorrect head.

What’s the most inappropriate radio show that a grammatically worrying “Just Right Sweet” sugar coated treat could possibly be linked to? 

Join The Attaboy Clarence Film Club and sound off, damn you.

PLUS, reviews of the nail-biting noir-thriller ‘The Woman In The Window’, the Cagney comedy ‘The Irish In Us’ ("O’HARA"), a horribly disappointing version of Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Black Cat’ starring Basil Rathbone, and James Stewart’s first movie, ‘The Murder Man’.

The radio play this week is an intriguing slice of mystery and drama, entitled ‘Libel’, from the Lux Radio Theatre, so turn the volume up, and settle back in for the just right sweet return of The Attaboy Clarence Podcast!

Episode 14: Obsession

We've had some great... if... mystifying messages...?

Is anyone in the market for a NEW car?

Adam reviews 'The Body Snatcher', 'The Amazing Doctor Clitterhouse' - yes, you read that correctly - 'The Saint's Vacation', and one of Adam's favourite films of all time: 'Obsession' from 1949, starring the breathtaking Sally Gray.

This week's radio play is from The Screen Guild Theatre, and Adam has actually gone out shopping for this week's competition prize. To enter is so very simple, and so very fun...

Also, details of the next Attaboy Clarence Special, which is coming up in a few weeks, and news of next week's radio play, perhaps the most infamous radio play of all time...

Turn the lights down low, and the headphones up high... and remember #sallygray

Night Has A Thousand Eyes

Attaboy Clarence Podcast Artwork.jpg

In this week's show, Adam is revolted by Orson Welles' attempt at an Irish accent in 'The Lady From Shanghai', but manages to find two worse examples (if such a thing is possible). He tells Lon Chaney (a very unsuitable Dracula indeed) to man up, and directs your attention to a classic collection coming soon to Blu-Ray.
Reviews this week are 'Horror Island', 'Night Has A Thousand Eyes', 'The Devil-Doll' and the sublime Val Lewton production, 'The Leopard Man'.
