The Projection Booth:Cleo/Leo


Special Guests: Scott Baker, Jane Hamilton, Ginger Lynn Allen, Larry Revene

Guest Co-Host: Jill Nelson

When a chauvinist pig (Scott Baker) gets shot for harassing women, he’s reincarnated as a woman (Jane Hamilton) in order to learn a lesson about life. Chuck Vincent’s Cleo/Leo is a terrific look at gender relations and institutional sexism.

We’re joined once again by author Jill Nelson to discuss Cleo/Leo, Blake Edwards’s Switch, Roberta Findlay’s Angel on Fire (AKA Angel Number Nine) and Vincente Minnelli’s Goodbye Charley.
