The 1985 Film CLUE the movie has become a cult classic for many children of the 1980’s. Eric Stein joins Rob Cesternino to discuss one of his all-time favorite films, CLUE.
The film stars Tim Curry as Wadsworth the butler of Mr. Boddy who is having a dinner party at his mansion. One by one the guests arrive for the party. The film has an all star cast starring Martin Mull as Colonel Mustard, Christopher Lloyd as Professor Plum, Michael McKean as Mr. Green, Madeline Kahn as Mrs. White, Eileen Brennan as Mrs. Peacock and Lesley Ann Warren as Miss Scarlet. Over the course of the film, many of the characters secrets are revealed as more and more murders are committed. The film ends with three different endings, each showing what could have happened.
Rob and Eric debate the plausibility of several of the endings debating whether it really would have been possible for any of the killers to move around the house completely unnoticed. Least plausible of all was the Miss Peacock ending where somehow a 53-year old woman went on a single-handed murdering spree around the house.
Rob and Eric go into depth about each of the characters to try to understand them a little deeper. Rob asks Eric how Mr. Green got invited to the party if he was not really gay and why was he being blackmailed. Rob and Eric also discuss how Jay Edgar Hoover really comes close to blowing Mr. Green’s undercover assignment.
Eric answers a number of questions from the Rob Has a Podcast facebook fan page asking about how the game of clue applied to life as America’s Player in the Big Brother house. Rob and Eric close out the show to try to come up with what a movie adaptation of the board game Monopoly might be like?
