On this special edition of The George Sanders Show Sean and I unveil the first round of our book club, which is basically us complaining about Thomas Schatz's seminal work on classical Hollywood, The Genius of the System. Speaking of the system, we then take time to discuss two films about the mysteries and myths of moviemaking, Hellzapoppin' and The Barefoot Contessa.

Instead of learning a language before heading off for a summer in France and Germany, I just watched movies instead. On this episode of The George Sanders Show Sean and I see double as we discuss Jacques Demy's Lola from 1961 and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's film of the same name, released twenty years later. Demy is also our Person of the Week and we select our Cinemassential Vacation Films. Also, special guest appearance by Weird Al!
Next time: Hellzapoppin' & The Barefoot Contessa!
