“The Prestige”

(Replay with new pre-show corrections)

Between the 1995 novel by Christopher Priest and the Christopher Nolan film

Abracadabra! This is a first for us here, a corrections-heavy pre-show and a replay of one of our most popular eps--"The Prestige." 

Wow--did we screw this one up. Turns out there is an author named Christopher Priest AND a graphic novelist who was born under the named James Owsley who also writes under the name Christopher Priest. 

So in our pre-show, we right this wrong and give each author their due. Plus we divulge what our next new ep shall be. Win/win, people!

The Margos get a little magical in this listener-suggested book to movie adaptation that features sleight of hand, lots of dead birds, women in jeopardy and a twist ending you either did or didn’t see coming a mile away.

The book features a series of diary entries and family sleuthing which one of the Margos found rather dull. The movie is a strange mix of whimsy and sadness which the Margos enjoyed to differing levels.

So between the book and movie--which did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to find out.

In this episode the Margos discuss:

  • The numerous differences between book and movie
  • What the author really thinks about the changes in the adaptation
  • The amazing cast including an American-accented Hugh Jackman
  • The performance by the late, great David Bowie
  • How much a “wow” the tricks were on screen

Clips Featured:

  • The Prestige trailer
  • The “twist ending”
  • Outro Music Strange Magic  by ELO
