Part Three of “The Special Relationship”!
It’s time once again for another episode of “The Special Relationship”, where Richard Murphy looks at American movie remakes that don’t quite live up to their British source material.
In this episode, Richard watches the Ealing Studios 1955 British comedy The Ladykillers, starring Alec Guinness, Herbert Lom, and Peter Sellers, and stacks it up against the Coen Brothers’ remake starring Tom Hanks and Marlon Wayans! In the process, he plays the Kevin Bacon game and connects Marlon Wayans to Alec Guinness in six degrees or less. And you can play along at home!
