Paul Bond and I got together for another awesome talk about Mario Bava’s second feature Hercules in the Haunted World (1961). The discussion ranges from points about Bava’s brilliant use of color in this film, the Sword and Sandal genre, the rise of body builders in cinema (Reg Park being mentor and proto-type for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career), and much more. As always, Paul Bond is a true professional, and I love doing this stuff with him, it makes for a great discussion.
There is some popping in the mic that I need to attend to, and there is also a bit of a delay with Paul. This is part of the process, and I’ll be sure to work through these details for our next episode.
