We keep chugging along, episode-wise, with our newest featuring the 1960 Billy Wilder film The Apartment, starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. It definitely criticizes 50’s corporate culture an power dynamics, and does address emotional abuse and gender inequality. However, it’s not revolutionary enough to pass the Bechdel test, and does have some racism. We get into all of that in the episode, take a listen!
A new trailer for The Dark Tower came out this week, and Kara’s super excited. I’m just confused. But Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey? Here’s what I say to that:
Speaking of money, around 18:50 or so, Megan says she couldn’t find how much Lemmon and MacLaine made for this film. As it turns out, both were paid the same amount, $175,000. So there was definitely some equity in that regard (thanks to Adam for digging that up).
