For our 50th episode, we talk about films from the 1950s.  This decade saw the development of auteurs like writer/directors Billy Wilder and Akira Kurosawa, the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock and a young director named Stanley Kubrick.  The 50s also saw a shift in the art of performance with actors like Marlon Brando and James Dean.  We also go on a short tangent about Rodney Ascher's left-of-center documentary "Room 237" involving some extreme theories on the meaning of Kubrick's "The Shining".  Subscribe on iTunes:  Check out our Facebook page: and follow us on twitter @actorengineer.
