Willow (Episode 68) - Hot Date with Dan and Vicky
Star Warwick Davis was only eighteen when he was cast as the lead in the Ron Howard directed, George Lucas produced fantasy epic Willow. He gamely and charismatically carries the film, often stealing the heroic spotlight from his more classically handsome costar, Hollywood It boy Val Kilmer. Davis also met the woman who would become his wife on the set of Willow -- she was an extra in the Nelwyn community scenes at the beginning of the film. Initially a modest hit, the film went on to gain a cult following and springboard Davis into a varied and successful career. Dan and Vicky enter the world of Willow for the first time and give their thoughts on it's effectiveness as a fantasy adventure film for kids with a dark undercurrent. They also recap some of their recently seen including the horror films Veronica, Burnt Offerings, Unsane and Giallo, and the TV offerings Instinct on CBS and Zen Diaries of Gary Shandling on HBO. We also hear about the Hot Date our hosts had on Broadway seeing the Glenda Jackson/Laurie Metcalf starring Three Tall Woman, Dan's new off-Broadway play The Enclave and, most exciting of all, the creation of Hot Date's new website, hotdatepod.com, where you can enjoy and stay current with all things Hot Date!
