90. 1970: Satire

1970 should go down in history as the most outlandish year in film. Some of the weirdest, most subversive, and most degenerate movies ever made either came out this year or were made in reference to a movie from this year. In SSS ep. 90 we navigated through the mess to bring you 4 of the most eccentric and entertaining Satire films of the year, with two films by Robert Altman: a bizarre film about a boy who wants to be a bird, Brewster McCloud, and the wartime comedy classic, M*A*S*H; the german precurser to Running Man, the Millions Game; and Russ Meyers of Super Vixens and Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! fame, with Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

89. 1979: Soviet Russia

In Soviet Russia, Television watches us! In SSS, ep.89 – 1979: Soviet Russia, we celebrate the new cold war by going back to the exploding Russian Film industry of 1979 with two made for TV movies, the Very Same Munchausen and Sherlock Homes & Doctor Watson pt. 1 & 2; the true to life Autumn Marathon; and Andrei Tarkovsky’s post-apocalyptic classic, Stalker.

88. 1978: Crime III

1978 might have been the year escapism movies became popular again, but that didn’t stop the boys from cranking out one last round of sleeper, neo-noir Crime classics. In SSS Ep. 88, we feature Ryan O’neal’s last great leading role in the Driver; Harvey Keitel at his most deranged in Fingers; Dustin Hoffman in Gene Siskel’s favorite underdog of the 1970s, Straight Time; and Elliot Gould’s last great leading role in Silent Partner.
Polls open at 2:30pm EST, 20:30 CET

87. 1977: On the Road Again

Our first ever theme of SSS was CARS. Now in SSS, ep. 87, On the Road Again, it’s time once again to start your engines only this time, any wheels will do, featuring Roy Sheider and the director of the French Connection and the Exorcist, William Friedkin, in the underrated remake of the Wages of Fear, Sorcerer; Clint Eastwood in the Gauntlet; the return of SSS Favorite, Franco Nero, in Hitch-Hike; and finally, Burt Reynolds and Sally Fields in Smokey and the Bandit.

86. 1976: Thriller

Classic suspense movies became more action oriented in the late 60s and early 70s, giving way to the now classic thrillers. In SSS, ep. 86, we pay homage to 4 of these movies from 1976: Clint Eastwood’s third outing as Dirty Harry in the Enforcer; an early John Carpenter classic, Assault on Precinct 13; Dustin Hoffman’s deadly race against German National Socialists in Marathon Man; and the new kid at school’s not so warm welcome in Massacre at Central High.

85. 1975: Epic II

With our second Epic theme we present one of our strongest lineups to date, SSS ep.85, with four sweeping masterpieces of 1975: Robert Altman’s classic, Nashville; Akira Kurasawa’s Russian adventure, Dersu Uzala; Andrzej Wajda’s portrait of the Industrial Revolution in Poland, the Promised Land; and Stanley Kubrick’s wartime epic, Barry Lyndon.

84. 1974: Conspiracy II

I know. They know that I know. I know that they know that I know. But they don’t know that I know that they know that I know. SSS, ep. 84 is the return of the Conspiracy movies of 1974, featuring the Conversation, le Secret, the Parallax View, and the Odessa File.

Christmas Day

83. 1973: Assassins

For SSS, Ep. 83 – 1973: Assassins, we’ve got four thrillers about characters with a very special set of skills, featuring: Burt Lancaster in Executive Action; the grindhouse adaptation of the Japanese Manga, Lady Snowblood; George C. Scott unwittingly trains a dolphin to kill the president in the Day of the Dolphin; and the classic political thriller, the Day of the Jackal.

82. 1972: New Hollywood II

New Hollywood continued to dominate well into the mid 70s with some of the most popular films featuring the new talents like Jack Nicholson, Gene Hackman, Sissy Spacek, and Ellen Burstyn, as well as familiar faces like Paul Newman and Lee Marvin. In SSS ep. 82 – 1972: New Hollywood II, we feature the triple threats of Lee Marvin, Gene Hackman, and Sissy Spacek in Prime Cut; Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, and Ellen Burstyn in the King of Marvin Gardens; as well as Paul Newman’s directorial debut in the Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-on-the-Moon Marigolds, and Cybill Shephard’s return in the Heartbreak Kid.

81. 1971: New Hollywood

Inspired by French New Wave, in the late 60’s American directors like Mike Nichols, with “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?” and “the Graduate”; John Cassavetes, with “Faces” and Arthur Penn, with “Bonnie and Clyde”, took advantage of industry uncertainty and began challenging audiences expectations with a new approach to film-making. By the early 70’s the style was called New Hollywood, and it came to define the era for many. In episode 81 of SSS we give credit to four of these films, with veteran Mike Nichol’s Carnal Knowledge; Peter Bogdonavich’s classic, the Last Picture Show; a very young Al Pacino in the heart-rending Panic in Needle Park; and Clint Eastwood at his most unsettling in the Beguiled.8

80. 1970: Dysfunctional

A common theme in the 60s and 70s movies was Dysfunctional Relationships, an unfortunate consequence of the sexual revolution and social programming. Filmmakers found hundreds of ways to unravel relationships, with their creative peak happening in 1970. In ep. 80 of SSS we analyze the year’s most common theme, behind only war and hippies, with the Honeymoon Killers, Husbands, Wanda, and Why Does Herr R. Run Amok?

– Season 7 –

79. Special: Animation III – Signor Rossi

Mr. Rossi, much like the title characters of popular Italian comedies of the 70’s, like Fantozzi and Un Borghese Piccolo Piccolo, represents the common working man: good natured, but tragically average. His cartoon began as a series of shorts, then episodes, and ultimately, three feature length films: Mr. Rossi Looks for Happiness [76], Mr. Rossi’s Dreams [77], and Mr. Rossi’s Vacation [78]. In SSS, ep. 79. We close out Spaghetti Season with our 3rd ever animation special to play all three, with selected shorts, an episodes of the Fantastic Adventures of Mr. Rossi.

78. Special: Frederico Fellini

Its hard to imagine a short list of the greatest directors of all time without Frederico Fellini. Before SSS Spaghetti Season comes to a close, we take a look at 4 of the master’s later classics from the 70s: Roma [72], Amarcord [73], Il Casanova [76], and Orchestra Rehearsal [78].

77. Special: Macaroni Combat

One of the lesser appreciated genres from Italy in the 60s and 70s was Macaroni Combat, which took cues from classic American style war movies, but often combined them with gruesome exploitation. In SSS, ep. 77, we near the ending of spaghetti season with four such films: the brutal ww1 classic, Many Wars Ago [78]; the often overlooked original version of the Inglorious Bastards [78]; Rock Hudson’s Italian-American co-production of Hornet’s Nest [70], and to mix things, we cheat a little bit with a late Vietnam war film, the Last Hunter [80].

76. Special: Gialloween

SSS Spaghetti Season presents our Gialloween Special, with four Italian giallo classics, featuring the first true slasher, A Bay of Blood; the end of innocence in the folk-horror classic, Don’t Torture a Duckling; the grindhouse gore-fest, Torso; and the acclaimed psychological-horror, Short Night of Glass Dolls.

75. Special Dario Argento

In 1977, Italian Director Dario Argento crossed over to international fame with a string of hugely popular proto-slasher giallo films starting with eye popping, Suspiria. But prior to that, he’d already made a name for himself among giallo fans with half a dozen films. In SSS ep. 75, we continue Spaghetti Season with 4 early Argento Giallo Horror cult-classics: the Bird with the Crystal Plumage [70], the Cat o’ Nine Tails [71], Four Flies on Grey Velvet [71], and Deep Red [75].

74. 1979: Italian Horror II

Whats twice as scary as an SSS-“SS” episode of Italian Horror? Two SSS-“SS” episodes of Italian Horror! In ep. 74 – 1979: Italian Horror 2, we’re featuring four more terrifying tales: the supernatural giallo bloodbath of mBeyond Darkness; the cult classic sequel to the Italian release of Zombi [Dawn of the Dead], Zombi 2 [Zombie or Zombie Death Eaters]; the throwback monster movie, Screamers; and the return of the evil alien child in the Visitor.

73. 1978: Italian Horror

The third major phase of popular 70s Italian cinema was Horror, with supernatural, zombie, cannibal, and most notably, giallo, a style of murder-mystery that influenced the Hollywood slasher. In SSS-SS ep. 73, 1978: Italian Horror, we deliver four very different movies: George Romeros wildly popular Italian/American joint production, released in Italy as the first movie in the Zombi series, but in North America as the sequel to Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead; also a slight cheat, a film from the previous year responsible for starting the “cannibal boom”, Jungle Holocaust; and two of the best giallo films of the year, the Bloodstained Shadow and Hotel Fear.

73. 1977: Kino

The second half of the 70s marked the oversaturation and declining popularity of Italian action films, and a greater focus on horror, sex comedies, and exploitation films. But with the exception of a few popular horror titles, it was the steady stream of art house films that carried Italian cinema into the next decade. In SSS, ep. 72 – 1977: Kino, we look at four of these, with Director, Mario Monicelli and Actor, Alberto Sordi’s jaw-dropping satire, An Average Little Man; the nihilistic family drama of Father and Master, the comedic period drama of In the Name of the Pope King, and Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni’s ww2 romance in A Special Day.

71. 1976: Epic

Bernardo Bertolluci is one of the most infamous and divisive Italian directors of all time and the mastermind behind the epic, Novecento[1900]. In episode 71 of SSS, we continue Spaghetti Season by showing part 1 and 2 of the film in it’s entirety. So order the pidser, and clear your schedule, because we’ve got a lot of story to tell.

70. 1975: Commedia all’Italiana

1975 was home to some of the biggest Italian comedies of the decade. In SSS, ep. 701975: Commedia all’Italiana, we continue Spaghetti Season with four of these films, featuring the classic ww2 black comedy, Seven Beauties; two of the most famous Italian comedies of all time, My Friends and White Collar Blues [Fantozzi]; and the genre-bending, giallo black comedy, the Suspicious Death of a Monor.

69. 1974: Poliziotteschi III

By 1974, Italian cinema was exploding in popularity as Poliziotteschi continued to be the primary export. In episode 69 we continue Spaghetti Season with one more week of police-procedural action movies, featuring: Henry Silva’s return in Death Dealer [Almost Human] and Cry of the Prostitute; the Giallo crossover hit, What Have They Done to Your Daughters?; and Franco Nero’s return in Street Law.

68: 1973: Poliziotteschi II

Spaghetti Season continues into 1973 with our second installment of Poliziotteschi, featuring French “Polar Film” Actor, Alain Delon in the hit, “No Way Out” [Big Guns]; Sergio Sellimo’s popular follow-up to “Violent City”, “Blood in the Streets” [Revolver]; SSS favorite, Frank Nero returns in “High Crime“; and Henry Silva stars in the acclaimed final part of Di Leo’s “Mileau Trilogy”, “the Boss“.

67. 1972: Poliziotteschi

With the international success of the French Connection in 1971, Italian directors began to pivot action movies from westerns to police procedurals and helped establish the 1970s as the decade of car chases, bank robberies, and gang shootouts. In ep. 67, we’re featuring 4 Poliziotteschi movies from 1972: Caliber 9, the Sicilian Connection, the Italian Connection, and the Execution Squad.

66. 1971: Spaghetti Westerns II

What’s better than one plate of Spaghetti? In ep. 661971, we’re dishing up a Second plate of Spaghetti Westerns, featuring Ringo Starr’s western exploitation hit, Blindman, James Coburn starring in Serge Leone’s final Western Masterpiece, Duck, You Sucker! [A Fistful of Dynamite], the cult classic that inspired Tarrantino, Cut Throats Nine, and the return of Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer in Trinity is Still My Name.

65. 1970: Spaghetti Westerns

By 1970, Sergio Leone had already made 4 out 5 of his Spaghetti Western classics, and the genre was soon to be replaced by the popular Polizioteschi movies of the 70s, but not before Italian Directors cranked out a dozen or so more cowboy thrillers. In SSS, ep 65, we’re featuring the Zapata classic, Compañeros; Klaus Kinski of Herzog fame in And God Said to Cain…; one of the most popular in the Sartana series, Light the Fuse… Sartana is Coming; and cult favorite, They Call Me Trinity.

– Season 6 –

64. Special: King Hu

In 2000, audiences worldwide were captivated by “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, a movie that featured flying warriors of ancient China amidst stunning art and set design with breathtaking cinematography. The style and fight choreography seemed other worldly, and sparked a series of big budget copies. But was the movie really that unique? In episode 64, we look at 4 movies by Chinese director, King Hu and his contribution to what became known as the “Wuxia” film, 30 years before Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, with A Touch of Zen [71], the Fate of Lee Khan [73], Raining in the Mountain [79], and Legend of the Mountain [79].

63. Special: Mockumentaries

Before District 9, the Blair Witch Project, and This is Spinal Tap, filmmakers in the 70s first discovered that documentaries could be used to tell any story they wanted. In ep. 63, we look at four of the first Mockumentaries: a nature documentary about insects taking over the world, the Hellstrom Chronicles [71]; the first reality show, Real Life [79]; a police response to a growing threat of communist subversives, Punishment Park [70]; and biopic about the world’s most famous band, the Rutles: All You Need is Cash [78].

62. Special: Documentaries

1970s was the decade movies really began to leave the studio lot. Before Citizenfour, the Cove, Hoop Dreams, and the thin Blue Line, rogue filmmakers in the 1970s were experimenting with direct film, cinema verite, and Documentaries. In SSS, ep 62 we’re featuring 4 of the movies that helped establish it as a genre: Orson Welle’s classic art film, F for Fake [72]; the heavily praised Vietnam war film, Hearts and Minds [74]; the movie that made Arnold Schwartzenegger a household name, Pumping Iron [77]; and the Oscar winning coverage of the Brookside Coalminer’s Strike, Harlan County, USA [76].

61. Special: Werner Herzog

From documentaries to opera, Werner Herzog‘s 50 year career began in the 1970s as a pioneer of New German Cinema. His films often study tragic characters with impossible dreams, people living on the fringe of society with remarkable talents, and conflicts between man and nature. In episode 61 of SSS, we feature a Special look at four of his films: the Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Agguire: the Wrath of God, Stroszek, and Nosferatu: the Vampyre.

60. Special: Animation II – Disney

In the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s Disney pivoted to using anthropomorphic title characters in their signature animated features, having only 2 films led by human characters in 30 years; the 1970s, in particular, being the only decade with no human title characters. In our second Animation Special, we are showcasing all four 1970s Disney animated features: the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh [77], Robin Hood [73], the Aristocats [70], and the Rescuers [77].

59. Special: Godzilla!!

Toho has produced over 30 Godzilla films and a dozen other giant monster films. In episode 59 of SSS we feature an all Toho lineup with four of the King of the Monsters final battles of the 70s, before the dawning of the Era of Gamera: Godzilla vs. Hedorah [71], Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla [74], Godzilla vs. Gigan [72], and Godzilla vs. Megalon [73].

59. Special: Sci Fi

1970s Sci Fi took on a more serious tone than it had in previous decades, amplifying the reactionary attitudes toward a burgeoning global technocracy. In SSS, ep. 58: Technocracy, featuring Logan’s Run [76], Colossus: the Forbin Project [70], Silent Running [72], and the Man Who Fell to Earth [76].

57. Special: Fight Night

They cannot hit what they cannot see; float like butterfly; sting like a bee. It’s SSS, ep – 57: Fight Night, featuring four 70s boxing classics: Stacy Keach plays a has been, hedging his bets on a young up and comer played by Jeff Bridges in Fat City, Charles Bronson stars as the bareknuckle brawler in Hard Times, and the Italian Stallion, Rocky Balboa, squares off against Apollo Creed, not once, but twice in Stallone’s Rocky and Rocky II.

56. Special: Michael Crichton

From Westworld to Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton’s 40 year career, 25 novels, 14 film adaptations, 7 director credits, 7 screenwriting credits, and 1 emmy, proved he was the king of Bio-tech Thrillers. In our next SSS Special, we feature 4 movies about the dangers of medical malpractice, virology, and transhumanism, with George Segal starring in the Terminal Man [74], Michael Douglas in Coma [78], James Coburn in the Carey Treatment [72], and Crichton’s first novel and hit adaptation, the Andromeda Strain [71]. Those unable to attend must present a note from their doctor.

55. Special: Disaster II

The hand of God, or nature’s wrath; whatever it may be, it’s come for us all in the SSS second installment of 1970s Disaster films: a rapidly spreading parasite threatens to destroy all of the worlds vegetation in “No Blade of Grass“, Charleton Heston and the population of Los Angeles is rattled to it’s core in “Earthquake“, Sean Connery and Natalie Wood star in the US/Soviet joint response to the threat of a giant “Meteor“, and finally George A. Romero’s global pandemic thriller, “the Crazies“.

54. Special: Disaster

Featuring four movies with the worst case scenarios in human error, where the more actors pictured on the poster, the bigger the thrills: the Hindenburg [75], the Towering Inferno [74], the Poseidon Adventure [72], and Rollercoaster[77].

53. Special: Sports Night

We came to play! SSS, ep.53 – Special: Sports Night, featuring four movies about moving the ball forward, with Steve Mcqueen in Le Mans [71]; Paul Newman in Slap Shot [77]; the coming of age classic, Breaking Away [79]; and Nick Nolte in North Dallas Forty [79].

– Season 5 –

52. Special: Steve’s Picks

In a startling display of heroism, Steve Zee reclaimed control of his ship from Empy and her mutinous crew, and brought with him four of his favorite movies that were overlooked in past votes, likely due to election fraud, including SSS favorite, Warren Oates in Sam Peckenpah’s “Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia“; the underrated French vigilante film, “La Horse“; another SSS favorite, Ben Gazzara in Roger Corman and Peter Bogdonavich’s “Saint Jack“; and finally, Robert Altman’s take on the classic Phillip Marlowe mystery, “the Long Goodbye“.

Watched: the Visitor, the Medusa Touch, Demon Seed

50. 50th Episode Special: Salute to Sam Peckinpah

From “the Wild Bunch” to “Cross of Iron”, ‘Bloody’ Sam Peckinpah was as praised as he was maligned for his gruesome depictions of violence.

In SSS, ep. 49 – 1979: the Man of the Hour, we’ve got four movies about a man who, well, he’s the man for his time’n place, featuring SSS favorite, Ben Gazarra in Roger Corman and Peter Bogdonavich’s far eastern epic, Saint Jack; Peter Sellers in his final oscar-nominated performance in Being There, Rober Duvall as the legendary family patriarch in the Great Santini, and the runaway Russian TV classic, the Very Same Munchhausen.

46. 1976: Grow Up

1976 was the year culture makers looked around and, in surprise and horror, realized that the boomers had grown up, and there was a new generation of kids, known simple as “X”, that had gone completely unnoticed. They knew they had to act quickly to make up for lost time, but given that the damage had already been done, movie producers were called for a quick fix. The result was a wave of “they grow up so fast these days, don’t they?” comedies, and “kids are literally the devil” (and throwing in a few curve balls, like “girls plays sports, now” for good measure). In ep. 46, we feature 4 movies from the first group: Disney’s Freaky Friday; Australia’s answer to Kes, Storm Boy; the foul mouthed sports comedy, the Bad News Bears, and French New Wave founder, François Truffaut’s Small Change.
