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.
