On Holiday with Jackie Kashian

Movie Meltdown - Episode 354 This week we welcome our special guest co-host Jackie Kashian to talk about comedy, her podcast The Dork Forest as well as this week's movie Holiday. This 1938 film directed by George Cukor may seem like just another classic era, romantic comedy. But as Jackie reveals, if you look a little deeper - you discover a commentary about money, freedom, politics, the family dynamic and accumulating wealth. As well as some great writing and unconventional performances. And while we touch on all the dorkisms from genre books to larping, we also discuss... start-up magoo, the American dream, The Heat, the flower of British manhood, Chinatown, Dennis Quaid, Shelob, I'm pretty sure this is not going to fill the hole in my heart, Midnight Run, Frank Capra, I was unfamiliar with your vaudeville training, Gail Carriger, Jake Gyllenhaal vs. Ryan Gosling, the jackass cousin couple, Paul Feig, role-playing zombies, You Can't Take It With You, The Devil Wears Prada, enormously
