Everyone has guilty secrets, embarrassing things we wish we’d never done. Well, like the dirty muck-rakers that we are, we’ve decided to start a podcast looking at the cringe-worthy, weird and plain forgotten films in the back catalogues of famous actors. Remember when Anthony Hopkins followed up his Oscar winning performance in The Silence of the Lambs with a part in a goofy sci-fi film co-starring Emilio Estevez and Mick Jagger? We do, and our new podcast Celluloid Skeletons is all about films like that.
For our first episode, host Joe Morrison will be chatting with Tom Rennie and Sophie Watson about the career of the world’s most famous living Scot, the one and only Sir Sean Connery. With a career spanning six decades and some truly iconic characters under his belt, Connery is a bona fide screen legend. So what’s he doing in a nappy and thigh high leather boots?
The answer is Zardoz, director John Boorman’s follow-up to Deliverance, a sci-fi oddity about life, death, sex, art and everything else in between.
Listen now to hear Joe, Tom and Sophie try and make some sense of it all.
