Episode 303: Johnny Tremain
If you're a true Son or Daughter of Liberty, friend, you're going to want to listen to this week's new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, On the new show, Josh and Scott are headed back to the American Revolution to discuss the trials and tribulations of the eponymous young hero Johnny Tremain. This film is celebrating its 60th anniversary in June, and has partially inspired a land in the Magic Kingdom, plus it even has a clean-shaven Sebastian Cabot and pre-West Side Story/Twin Peaks Richard Beymer. And it's the Disney debut of Mary Poppins director Robert Stevenson! But is it any good? Does the film hold up like early Disney live-action classics, or is it utterly forgettable? And you should be smithing on the Sabbath? Listen to find out!
