The Wrong Man with Special Guest Jason Isralowitz


What is it like to be accused of a crime one didn't commit--when you're not Cary Grant in North by Northwest or Robert Donat in The 39 Steps? Mike and Dan talk about Hitchcock's one film based on a real event: The Wrong Man (1956). Joining them is Jason Isralowitz, author of Nothing to Fear: Alfred Hitchcock and the Wrong Man. The three of them discuss the actual case upon which the film was based, their favorite moments in the film, and how it stands apart as a movie unique in the Hitchcock canon. Don't apply for that loan today--instead, stay home and give this a listen!
