Episode 31: The Film Freaks Honor Fallen Favorites
By Phoef Sutton and Mark Jordan Legan
Early in this new year of 2021, some truly great talents have passed away and we were particularly moved and yet pleased to see the incredibly long lives and distinguished careers of four favorite performers—Cicely Tyson, Hal Holbrook, Cloris Leachman, and Christopher Plummer. All lived into their 90s and worked right up to the end, and along the way created some memorable and iconic characters, both onstage and in front of the camera. They won Oscars, Tonys, and Emmys. They played everybody from Mark Twain to Leo Tolstoy to Coretta Scott King. We take you through their amazing careers and discuss everything from “Sounder” to “That Certain Summer” to “Young Frankenstein” to “Knives Out” and so many other plays, films, and television series in between. Come join us and toast these terrific thespians and learns few fascinating things about their lives and careers.
