26 - Roar

Released 28/11/2016

This episode of the podcast explores the little known, 1981 film Roar, in which Noel Marshall, Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith spend an hour and a half surrounded by lions, tigers and other assorted big cats before learning to be a family again. It was a movie produced by, essentially, throwing a load of actors and lions into a house together and filming what happened. The end result is every bit as fascinating as you'd expect and, as usual, Calvin, Allen and Sol are on hand to talk you through it before pitching their own takes for how you could follow such a unique piece of cinema up with a sequel.
