Charles shares with us how he got his start in radio and the theater as a child. He shares how he befriended Anthony Perkins. He talks about his early films including 1974’s THE THIRSTY DEAD (how was this not a New World Pictures movie?!), 1979’s MIRROR MIRROR, and 1980’s DOUBLE NEGATIVE.
We also talk about his book, There’s a Body in the Window Seat!: The History of Arsenic and Old Lace (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/theres-a-body-in-the-window-seat-charles-dennis/1140132407). It’s an incredible history of the film and serves as a great companion to his audio commentary on the Criterion Collection Blu-Ray. Go pick up a copy on Amazon or wherever you find books.
Finally, we also talk about the making of RENO AND THE DOC and the theme, “A Little Piece of Forever”. Dammit. Now I have that song stuck in my head.
