Beyond The Box Set

Mildred Pierce

August 29, 2021

My ill-fated attempt to induct Harry into the joys of classic cinema continues with Mildred Pierce, the Oscar-winning film noir that provided a much-needed comeback vehicle for Joan Crawford. 

Tune in to hear our thoughts on bad police work, Streisand-esque lighting, intimidating shoulder pads and much more!


Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a look at a well-known standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
