“The Prisoner” (1967) has been called the most intelligent, thought-provoking entertainment series of all time and quite frankly, we think that is understating the show’s merits! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of that groundbreaking show’s debut and to commemorate the event, your friends in podcasting will welcome the organizer of the upcoming The Prisoner Con 2017 to discuss this incredible series, its production, its themes, its legacy. Even if you have never watched the series, have no fear, you will find this week’s show fascinating. We promise. And Phil sets the stage by putting the show, and its creator-star in historic context in a very special opening segment.
Be seeing you!
From the “7 Up” series of documentaries to a question from a loyal listener about biographies, from a LACMA exhibit of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography to such historic buildings as Artemisia and the California Club Preservation, from the death of Daily Variety to the philosophy of George Orwell, preservation, documentation and human decency are foremost on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week.
So, join your friends in podcasting for another nourishing and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
