How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying  (1967)

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (1967)


Welcome to Cinema60, a podcast about the wild and wonderful world of 1960s cinema brought to you by two people who were born over a decade after the fact. Our first episode is a bit of a getting to know you episode, as Bart and Jenna speak for the first time about why they’re taking the plunge into making this podcast in the first place. They discuss everything from their own personal backgrounds with cinema, what it is they want from a movie, and how to approach older cinema while not betraying your modern values.
