David Carradine POPS THE CLUTCH again in Paul Bartel’s follow-up to Death Race 2000, which features a cross-country race full of oddballs competing for a huge cash prize. Featuring an awesome cast of recognizable faces (Mary Woronov! Gerrit Graham! Robert Carradine! DICK MILLER! Joe Dante!) and even more awesome cameos (Martin Scorsese eating KFC with Bartel and Sylvester Stallone), it’s a sometimes shaky, but always entertaining, collection of comedy, musical numbers (?) and car stunts. Find out how it all came together on this brand new episode of BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD.

Paul Bartel POPS THE CLUTCH and brings the world the gory sci-fi satire DEATH RACE 2000 in 1975, a box office smash that remains a popular (and influential) exploitation film and a jewel in Roger Corman’s New World Pictures catalogue. On this episode of BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD we look at how the film came to be, the difficulties in filming (including David Carradine nearly being replaced by Lee Majors!), and the enduring legacy of the film. FRANKENSTEIN SCORES!

Following the worldwide success of El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky connected with Michel Seydoux to pursue any project he wished. The answer? An adaptation of the beloved, expansive science fiction novel by Frank Herbert. What followed was an epic collaboration involving the director and a collection of legendary collaborators (or “spiritual warriors”) including Dan O’Bannon, Jean “Moebius” Girard, Chris Foss, H.R. Giger, Pink Floyd, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and that’s just the beginning! On this episode we look at how the project developed, how it fell apart, and whether it’s truly the greatest film never made. We also look at some of the criticism of the project, the adaptations of Dune that were to follow and – of course – the 2014 documentary JODOROWSKY’S DUNE that helped bring the story to the world.

Coming NEXT WEEK is a discussion with the director of JODOROWSKY’S DUNE Frank Pavich!

On this episode we refer to the essay JODOROWSKY’S DUNE DIDN’T GET MADE FOR A REASON… AND WE SHOULD ALL BE GRATEFUL FOR THAT by Emmet Asher-Perrin
