059: SFFCH – The Vikings

059 The Vikings SF

Long, long ago, in 1958, there were Vikings! Abi has taken Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray into deep history by choosing ‘The Vikings’, featuring Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine. Bring your shields and swords, and when you finish send this podcast recording out to sea on a burning barge in memorial. Rich, Abi and Ant have a great time with this movie, enjoying the comparatively high authenticity and starry cast but wondering why it’s comparatively little known. Some notes and corrections: Ernest Borgnine was not in ‘The Taking of Pelham 123’, Asterix and Obelix weren’t Vikings, and Wales is indeed a giant slagheap. It’s also interesting to listen to the reactions to representations of historic fact. (Ep 59, Rec 2014)
