Lambcast #566 “The Red Shoes” MOTM

by Richard Kirkham · January 11, 2021 · Featured, LAMBcast, MOTM · 1 Comment

While it is still possible that 2021 could go even further south than it’s predecessor, we at the LAMB look around and see signs of hope. After all, there is a vaccine now available and…well at least we have that. Also, “The Red Shoes” finally will move off of your monthly ballot for Movie of the Month because it won. If there is any hope for movie based podcasts this year, it will be in the form of looking at our rich history of film in more depth (as opposed to looking at new films which have been pushed back yet again).

Meg Hyland takes the reins as host and along with Richard she is joined by Todd Liebenow, Stephen Palmer, Brian Eggert and Lisa Leaheey as they dissect the Technicolor marvel that is “The Red Shoes”.  Listen in and find out why Raging Bull and The Muppet show have a debt to pay to the 1948 film. Speculate along with the show guests as to what makes a person the antagonist or the protagonist. Discover the history of the films restoration and the impact that such restoration had on it’s legacy. 


If you have seen and love the movie you’ll be glad to hear how six other film fans feel about your object of affection. If you have not yet experienced the film, come and listen to the group marvel at a nearly twenty minute segment of the film that will make you want to put it on right now.
