Scarab and Cinema

An off-shoot of DrunkCast with Jay, Tim has a few cocktails and talks about his favorite movies.

3: The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula

Tim returns with a new movie! Sort of… He covers the 1977 TV classic The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries episode “The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula.” And it is exactly what you think it is (but with Paul Williams, Lorne Greene, and Bernie Taupin!). Directed by Joseph Pevney and written by Glen A. Larson and Michael Sloan, this episode starred Shaun Cassidy, Parker Stevenson, and Pamela Sue Martin.

For the Hell of It – Paul Williams


2: The Spirit of ’76

Tim Wallace (of Beetlemania! and Kord Industries) is back again to slur about movies! Today’s offering is the classic 1990 film The Spirit of ’76. Directed by Lucas Reiner, this gem of modern cinema stars David Cassidy, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Olivia d’Abo, Geoff Hoyle, Jeff McDonald, and Steven Shane McDonald, and truly has to be seen to be believed.

1: That Thing You Do

So DrunkCasting may be a bad idea but at least Jay isn’t the only one willing to risk embarrassing himself publicly. Join Tim Wallace (of Beetlemania! and Kord Industries) as he discusses That Thing You Do (1996, written and directed by Tom Hanks).
