Episode 04 - They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To

We wrap up 1986 on Out of Touchstone, focusing on three acting legends and one rising star. TOUGH GUYS is the first film to be discussed, as Mike and Chad look at the timeless nature of screen icons Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, while debating the culture shock of the 1980's. Martin Scorsese's THE COLOR OF THE MONEY comes next, as Paul Newman grooms a young Tom Cruise on the ways of the world (and pool hustling). The hosts also look at the year-end box office charts for 1986, then select their favorite - and least favorite - Touchstone film released during the label's first three years of existence.

The Rundown:

  • Mike and Chad bring up the ageist stigma and the virtues of showcasing older actors
  • What would a TOUGH GUYS remake look like today, and who could be cast in the role
  • Comparisons between THE HUSTLER and THE COLOR OF MONEY
  • With the open ending of THE COLOR OF MONEY, what would a sequel look like
  • A personal connection story about Tom Cruise
  • Touchstone films Mike and Chad have liked and disliked so far
