Podcast: ABC Overnights – Godfathers and Gangsters At the Movies

The Godfather - Marlon Brando

ABC Local RadioWe were lucky enough to be invited to once again take up a guest spot on the ABC Radio Overnights, at the always fun hour of 4am to 5am back on 25 August 2012. Richard Gray joins Rod Quinn to discuss Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather for its 40th anniversary, along with other classic gangster films. Produced by Dan Glover.

The show takes the opportunity to revisit the classic trilogy, the evolution of gangster films through the Production Code, along with modern classics of Martin Scorsese from Mean Streets to Goodfellas, TV’s The Sopranos and Sergio Leone’s sprawling crime-saga Once Upon a Time in America.

Once again we need to thank Rod and Dan for the invite on the show, it’s always a blast. We previously appeared on ABC Overnights in July for They Keeping Making the Same Movie!, again also in May where we discussed Mad, Bad Rulers in Film. You can listen to our other weekly podcasts including Film Actually News, review show Film Actually and our comic book show Behind the Panels.
