Stand By Me
We've been getting requests for Stand By Me since this podcast launched and it's easy to see why. This is a film that seems tailor made for the premise of this show.
One of the benefits to holding off on it for this long is that we've already covered so many of the other "kids on an adventure" movies from this era and now we can really highlight what sets this one apart.
So grab your gear and follow us down the tracks. Don't worry, we brought the comb.
Topics include: realizing that Stephen King didn't just write horror stories, differences between this and his original novella, the tragedy of River Phoenix, why Teddy was the most difficult character to cast, how this becomes a completely different film the older you get, the very different version of this that almost materialized before director Rob Reiner got involved, and much more!
