Black leather, black leather, kill kill kill! On a brand new episode of FURTHER REEDING we’re digging into the pre-apocalyptic, sea-side pleasures of the 1963 sci-fi classic THE DAMNED (aka WE ARE THE DAMNED), directed by the great Joseph Losey and starring Macdonald Carey, Shirley Anne Field, and – of course – our boy Oliver Reed! It’s about a group of irradiated kids having to live underground as prep for the upcoming nuclear holocaust. Cheery stuff! Have a listen!

New year, new episode of FURTHER REEDING, a podcast all about the life and career of actor Oliver Reed! On this episode we’re joining Reed and all his seaside buddies as they take in (and take out) the tourist trade in 1964’s THE SYSTEM (also known by the confusingly titled THE GIRL-GETTERS in the US). Directed by regular Reed collaborator (and notorious scumbag) Michael Winner, it’s a fascinatingly layered drama with a star making performance from Reed in the lead. BUT IS IT ANY GOOD? Listen and find out!

On this episode of FURTHER REEDING, Oliver Reed and Amanda Donohoe have only gone and got themselves stranded on a desert island and have to survive, but – GET THIS – they did it on purpose in Nicolas Roeg’s CASTAWAY from 1986. Based on a bizarre true story, it involves a whole lot of nudity and Oliver Reed acting like a maniac so you know we had to talk about it. Sadly, it’s a bit hard to track down (unless you write the title and year of release into YouTube), so you’ll just have to listen to us describe it and try to use your imagination to picture all the nudity. ENJOY!

On this swashbuckling episode of FURTHER REEDING we’re diving into Richard Lester’s incredibly entertaining 1973 action comedy THE THREE MUSKETEERS, starring Michael York, Frank Finlay, Richard Chamberlain, Raquel Welch, Christopher Lee, Charlton Heston and – of course – Oliver Reed as Athos. Playing a character who is a heavy drinker and fighter might not have been a stretch for Reed, but he still got up to plenty of trouble on-set and we go through some of the more memorable stories and incidents that occurred during filming. We also chat about sword-fighting, blunderbusses, the origins of the term “musketeer” and so much more. CHECK IT OUT!
