This week, Roqayah and Kumars follow up their After Hours episode on the best and worst cop shows with a rundown of the most celebrated cop movies of all time, tracing the evolution of the genre from Orson Welles's film noir “Touch of Evil” and the tragically influential “Dirty Harry” to “Heat” and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” touching on ‘80s classics like “Die Hard” and “RoboCop” along the way.
Dashiell Hammett, the author of "The Maltese Falcon," wrote another famous novel, "The Glass Key." It's a murder mystery that revolves around the seedy world of corrupt politicians, crime syndicates, and grift. Today in our journey through "radio noir" we are bringing you Orson Welles's nuanced adaptation of the story. Although it has all the hallmarks of noir, including murky motives and startling bursts of violence, don't expect a mile-a-minute, action-packed juvenile pulp adventure here. What it does have is underplayed performances, interesting character relationships, and a more cerebral crime noir.

The person of Orson Welles is a loaded one for an observer of film --- he was so many things in his lifetime, he wore so many hats. Welles had incredible triumphs and unbelievable lows in his chosen work. He was such a consummate actor that it was hard to tell when he was serious and when he was still acting, when seen outside a theater, radio studio or soundstage. If you ask him to be recalled by people in the 21st Century, many will be able to cite two aspects, at polar opposites of his life and story. Orson Welles wrote, directed, produced, and starred in what many regard as the greatest film ever made --- Citizen Kane. He was also, near the end of his life and in search of funds, a spokesperson for the lower- and medium-priced wines of Paul Masson, with the catchphrase, “We will sell no wine before its time.” In other words, these aren't grapes we just pressed, bottled and shipped. It's not garbage. That's what Masson was paying him for. He intoned this, the words emanating from his obese body but still in his beautiful, modulated baritone. He became a punch line. email: David@thosewonderfulpeople.comWebsite and blog: www.thosewonderfulpeople.comIG: @thosewonderfulpeopleTwitter: @FilmsInTheDark

Contestants: Meredith MacVittie, Ben Rothenberg, Nikhil SonejaFrom the semi-logical to the semiological, this episode examines the JAMES BOND phenomenon at all angles, turning a spyglass on the world's most famous spy. As we celebrate the rich legacy of the Bond franchise while also reflecting on its many problematic aspects, we additionally draw connections to geography, politics, probability theory, radical feminism, horse racing, the Olympics, Willy Wonka, Orson Welles, and of course gambling and music.

Every now and then, a film critic puts their money where their mouth is and makes a movie for themselves - and sometimes they even prove to be true masters of the craft: Paul Schrader and Francois Truffaut, for example. But MG argues that one of the most impressive debuts of all time is someone who is now a bit forgotten - film historian and Orson Welles biographer Peter Bogdanovich - whose incredible one-two punch of The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon made him the toast of the town in the early 70s!
This show was so unbelievably campy and weird, we almost didn't do it. Arch Oboler wrote the script for this episode of the legendary radio series, "The Shadow," and Orson Welles was the star, along with Agnes Moorhead. With the powerhouse of talent involved, it's a radio misfire that is fascinating to listen to on so many levels.
