About this Episode

"What's Up, Doc?", Peter Bogdanovich's 1972 screwball classic, may be an atypical Barbra Streisand movie, but it was Matt's introduction to the singer, actress, and filmmaker. While maybe not the perfect intro to Streisand, it's still a personal favorite of Matt's, so it felt right to share with newcomers Brian and Christina of the Old Roommates podcast. They discuss the enigma that is Barbra Streisand, the many films that inspired Peter Bogdanovich, the greatness of Madeleine Kahn how, how screwball comedies had fallen out of fashion by the '70s, and just how much character development you need to make a wacky comedy like "What's Up, Doc?" work.
