Ep. 87: Saint Jack featuring Ben Slater
JUNE GLOOM marches on and takes a dramatic (yet satisfying) turn as we discuss SAINT JACK, the film that saw director Peter Bogdanovich’s return to Roger Corman filmmaking!  And joining us for this episode is the hilarious and insightful Ben Slater, who literally wrote the book on SAINT JACK with Kinda Hot: The Making of Saint Jack in Singapore!  We ask Ben all the necessary insightful questions, like how was Cybill Shepherd involved in the film? How close was Orson Welles to directing it? And why is ENCINO MAN the best fish-out-of-water film?  Plus, we talk about how a James Bond was cast in the movie, how Singapore itself plays a role in the film, and whether New World Pictures successfully marketed the film.  Follow Ben Slater on Twitter: https://twitter.com/gonetopersia
