67: The Grand Seduction with Ruth Goodwin
This week, actress and producer Ruth Gordon transports us to the enchanting village of Tickle Head for The Grand Seduction. We hear Ruth's adorable Gordon Pinset story, talk about how this film fits perfectly into Don McKellar's "Canadian Male Dud" Oeuvre, how acting is like a superpower, and how not to be intimidated by the A list actors you're working opposite. Stay tuned to hear which side of twee Cam thinks this falls on, and Becky stepping in it by messing up Mark Critch's name and mixing up New Foundland and Nova Scotia. She's desperately sorry...and still on LA time.
This week's end credit music is Ooh Belle By The Barr Brothers. The Barr Brothers are a Montreal birthed New Folk band that Becky really digs when she needs some mellow music. Find out more about them at their website: thebarrbrothers.com.
