Our latest show is a tribute to one of our favourite actors and certainly somebody that requires no introduction to any child of the 1970s.
Episode 47 is all about Roddy McDowall, although we purposely sidestep Planet of the Apes, mostly because we do whole shows on that topic any way and also because the guy had a pretty incredible career on top of being Galen/Cornelius/Caesar.
We chat his various television series like Tales of the Gold Monkey and Fantastic Journey and his incredible amount of guest spots on shows like Batman, Columbo, Quantum Leap and even Pinkey and the Brain.
And of course, we discuss films like Fright Night, The Black Hole and the Legend of Hell House among others.
Hit us up on our facebook page and tell us what your favourite Roddy McDowall role is!
- The "Short Fuse" episode of Columbo
- That busted Remo Williams TV Pilot where Roddy McDowall played a Korean master of Sinanju
- The Trailer for Legend of Hell House
