Ep 663: Author Glenn Frankel with Illeana Douglas

Apr 09, 2021

[6 mins.] Author Glenn Frankel ("High Noon", "The Searchers") returns to the podcast with his latest book "Shooting Midnight Cowboy: Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and the Making of a Dark Classic" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2021). Frankel’s book tells the story of a modern classic that, by all accounts, should never have become one in the first place. The film’s boundary-pushing subject matter—homosexuality, prostitution, sexual assault—earned it an X rating when it first appeared in cinemas in 1969. I am joined once again by the co-host with definitely the most, actor/author/film historian Illeana Douglas for this delightful conversation.
