Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

November 19, 2021

On this episode we come in under our usual time due to technical issues when we were recording, but we were so excited to talk about 1971's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory that we pushed on and tried to still salvage an episode out of it. We figured it's a bizarre movie with weird music and this bizarro episode is probably suitable. I SAID GOOD DAY!

For this episode we took it way back to 1960 for the TV broadcast of the 1954 musical of the story of Peter Pan, Staring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard. Bryn and Angie reflect on how despite this being the most low budget production they've ever seen, everyone they spoke to over the week had absolutely seen it.
