Matinee Manatees


Tom Hanks once said that Jason And The Argonauts was the greatest film ever made.  But was he right?  I mean, yeah, probably.  Directed by Don Chaffey, starring Todd Armstrong and Honor Blackman, and featuring an original score by the fantastic Bernard Herrmann, Jason And The Argonauts is perhaps better known as a showcase of the legendary Ray Harryhausen's visual effects, but even aside from those it's got a pace and a feel that's worth catching.  Also, it's free on the web archives, so that's a plus!  Float along with the manatees as they gush over mid-century claymation, discuss responsible provisioning plans, and demonstrate a consistent and profound lack of Greek myth expertise.  This is a fun one! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/matinee-manatees/support
