Episode 310: Chilly Scenes of Winter (1979)

Special Guests: Joan Micklin Silver, John Heard, Amy Robinson, Griffin Dunne, Mark Metcalf
Guest Co-Hosts: Daniel Kremer, Bill Ackerman
In Joan Miklin-Silver's Chilly Scenes of Winter (1979) John Heard plays Charles, a lovelorn man who pines for Laura (Mary Beth Hurt), who's taking a break from her relationship with Ox (Mark Metcalf).
Produced by Metcalf, Amy Robinson, and Griffin Dunne, the film was initially released as Head Over Heels with a ridiculous advertising campaign that didn't capture the true spirit of the movie. Fortunately, the film was given another chance with a new ending and its proper title.
Bill Ackerman and Daniel Kremer (who's writing a book about Joan Miklin Silver) join Mike to discuss the film, which is finally getting a proper Blu-Ray release.
