TGS 252-The Film Author Wes Gehring Interview


Everybody likes to watch movies. A lot of people like to talk about movies. And, certainly, there's a whole burgeoning industry filled with fanboys reviewing--and usually whining--in an esoteric manner about movies.

But, suffice it to say that in keeping with our program, we didn't get an amateur.

We were lucky enough to sequester award-winning film historian and author Dr. Wes Gehring, author of the book Genre-Busting Dark Comedies Of The 1970s. And 35 other or so other books on film.

We'll discuss the 12 films the book examines--MASH, Catch-22, Little Big Man, Harold and Maude, Cabaret, Slaughterhouse-Five, Chinatown, Love and Death, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Annie Hall, Being There, and All That Jazz.

Naturally, we recommend that you pick up Genre-Busting Dark Comedies Of The 1970s--and soon. Or, for a fuller listing of his works, visit Amazon, and behold. You'll thank us profusely after the first read.

Sit back and listen to some heavy duty film analysis of a ground-breaking genre with our esteemed guest, Dr. Wes Gehring on this exciting episode of The Tom Gulley Show.
