Classic Directors – Otto Preminger

Sound on Sight Radio #265:

In our second Classic Directors podcast, Derek, Justine and Simon take a look at the life and work of the prolific Otto Preminger, whose work often defied genre while touching on hot-button issues in a generally unforced manner. He first became known for 1944’s classic noir Laura, but his career spanned decades and was littered with highlights. We’ll be taking a look at a sliver of time in his career, specifically the mid-50s, and talking about Carmen Jones, The Man With the Golden Arm, and 1958’s masterful Bonjour Tristesse.
