Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos tackle true crime in this episode that features Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood which was a sensation when it was first published in 1966 and started a new genre called the “non-fiction novel.” Capote first read about the Clutter family murders in early December 1959 in a small section of the New York Times.

Book Vs Movie: Book Vs Movie: "Rocketman" (Elton John's "Me)

Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos are both Elton John fanatics, so when the Book Vs Movie Podcast Group on Facebook came up with the idea to cover John’s #1 New York Times bestseller Me and pair it with the hit film directed by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle, Bohemian Rhapsody) we immediately put on our platform shoes and bold glasses and got to work. (You see, we are always game to do a thing called the Crocodile Rock!)

Book Vs Movie: Book Vs Movie: "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe

Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos both hear a rapping, rapping at our podcast door but we are not afraid. Because this episode is dedicated to all things “The Raven” by Edgar Allen Poe and the 1963 Roger Corman movie that stars Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, and a young Jack Nicholson.

Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos are back and talking about spooky books & movies since, duh--it’s October! This is our favorite month of the year and we have so much fun talking about one of our best-loved stories from our childhood-- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow written by the fascinating Washington Irving.

Book Vs Movie: Stephen King's Book Vs Movie: Stephen King's "Carrie" (1976) Replay Ep

Book Vs Movie Podcast

It’s October and the Margos are SO excited to revisit a classic Stephen King tale--Carrie which we originally covered in 2014 (using the old, old way we recorded back in the early days.)  This is not only King's first movie adaptation but it is also based on his first published novel. There are so many changes between book & movie that we wanted to give it a modern treatment (meaning better sound and lots of clips!)

Book Vs Movie Book Vs Movie "The Birds"

Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos both have stories about the first time we saw the Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds and knew they also wanted to return to the fascinating life of Daphne du Maurier so it made sense to include her short story in our season of “scary” books and movies.

Book Vs Movie Podcast

In this special “Stephen King” ep, Margo D. and Adam Riske who is a contributor to the excellent movie podcast F This Movie, get together to talk about two rather weird Stephen King productions that they both love for nostalgic reasons. Then we wander off into some unexpected pop-culture tangents-- but let's get into the movies first.

Book Vs Movie Book Vs Movie "Coraline" (Replay)

Book Vs Movie Podcast

What would you do if your mother and father all of a sudden became entirely different (and scary) people? Coraline Jones is a young English girl who moves to an old house that is filled with interesting characters (such as Miss Spink, Miss Forcible and Mr. Bobo,) loving (yet kind of absent) parents and a bricked-up door leading to an adventure which tests the might and ingenuity of our heroine. (Spoiler--we really love this book & movie here!)

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”

The Washing Irving Short Story Classic  Vs the Tim Burton Movie

The Margos are back and talking about spooky books & movies since, duh--it’s October! This is our favorite month of the year and we have so much fun talking about one of our best-loved stories from our childhood-- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow written by the fascinating Washington Irving.  The only hard part about this episode was deciding which version of the movie we should cover (there are several!) In the end, we decided to stick with one of our favorite directors, Tim Burton and his reimaging of the tale-- Sleepy Hollow.  

We begin by looking at the incredible life of the author and how a yellow fever epidemic (prevalent in his childhood) made him familiar with the ghost stories of Hudson Valley, New York. Also, how the youngest of eleven children named for the first President of the United States took his lifelong love of writing and history to become America’s first famous “man of letters.”

(If you are a fan of New York City trivia and/or the origin of Christmas traditions--you will be especially happy with this ep!)

After that, we once again go into the film archives of Tim Burton and check out his unique take on not only the character of the historically smarmy, school teacher and not-handsome-at-all Ichabod Crane (played as a hot NYC police investigator by Johnny Depp) and the plot of the story which here centers around magic and spells.

So which did the Margos like better? Book or Movie? Check out the link below to find out!

In this ep the Margos discuss :

  • The NBC Halloween special which starred Jeff Goldblum and is unfortunately not available by streaming service.
  • The 1949 Disney movie (The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad) that scared both Margos in our childhoods.
  • The opportunity to choose from over 40 different versions of the audiobook.
  • How the term Nickerbocker (“The Nicks,”) Gotham and the phrase “the almighty dollar” are all attributed to Washington Irving.
  • The various interpretations of the short story and the meaning behind Ichabod’s disappearance.
  • The incredible look of Tim Burton movies and the art direction by Rick Heinrichs and Peter Young who won the Academy Award in 2000.
  • The main differences between the short story and movie.
  • Plus, we are movie trivia and our thoughts on the casting including Christina Ricci, Christopher Walken, and Miranda Richardson.

Clips Featured:

  • Ichabod by Bing Crosby and Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaries (Ichabod 1949)
  • Sleepy Hollow  trailer
  • The story behind the Headless Horseman
  • Outro Music: The Headless Horseman by Bing Crosby and Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaries (Ichabod 1949)
