Hey, guess who’s on this week’s Forgotten Filmcast?

We are! Whee!

Forgotten Filmcast, hosted by Todd at Forgotten Films, is a podcast that looks at movies abandoned by time.

This week’s film is The Smallest Show on Earth, a 1957 British comedy about a young couple who inherit a derelict movie theatre. There are lots of fab British actors in this film, including a young Peter Sellers.

Here’s how you can listen to the discussion of this delightful movie:

      1. I really enjoyed the podcast, Ruth! You were so enthusiastic, your love for this film was infectious, and Todd made for a fine host. I’ll be checking out more of his show, and obviously on the lookout for a copy of the DVD.
