Blast of Silence

Special Guest: Allen Baron

Danger signal! It’s an episode all about Allen Baron’s 1961 neorealistic Blast of Silence, the story bad boy Frankie Bono, a hit man who comes to New York City at Christmas to fulfill a contract. He’s torn between his obligation to pull the trigger and his heart.

We’re joined this week by guest co-host Howard A. Rodman to talk about “Hart to Hart,” Winky Dink, film preservation, and more.
