Since the New Beverly is mostly playing ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD this month, Elric, Brian and Phil took this opportunity to talk to the film's Editor Fred Raskin about the movie. If you're unfamiliar with Fred's work, he's edited other films for Tarantino such as DJANGO UNCHAINED and THE HATEFUL EIGHT as well as both GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films and three consecutive FAST AND FURIOUS movies starting with TOKYO DRIFT. On top of that, he also cut BONE TOMAHAWK and THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS! So Fred is the main guest interview for most of this episode and in the last section, all the matinees and kiddie shows playing at the theater in August are discussed. Be warned though, ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD is covered in great detail on this episode with major spoilers throughout, so please be aware of that before listening! Enjoy!

Elric and Brian are joined this episode by one of their dream guests - Director Joe Dante - to talk about a topic that is near and dear to him: Westerns. The focus is mostly on Pre-WILD BUNCH westerns, but the discussion strays outside of that as well. Joe definitely pulls out some deep cuts! Enjoy!

Gates who is an authority on the topic and even did a lovely project called "A Year With Women" which you should absolutely check out: https://cinema-fanatic.com/a-year-with-women/

Have a listen and definitely check the wonderful KING COHEN Documentary (which is mentioned several times throughout the show)!

The idea for "Kiddee Midnights" was born out of the "Kiddee Matinees" and Midnight screenings that have been discussed on the New Beverly Calendar episodes of the show. The thought was to join them together in a peanut butter and chocolate kind of way and on this episode, Elric and Brian are joined by Millie De Chirico who programs TCM Underground (and more) to take on the topic. Each of them has selected five double features - containing one kids film and one midnight/cult film. This episode was a lot of fun to research and record so please enjoy!
