1973 Podcast


Film Geek Central presents the films of 1973!

Austin Kennedy is reviewing every known available film released in the United States in 1973.  And in chronological order.

Every week Austin will be reviewing 5-6 movies from 1973.  And so you don’t get tired of just him talking about the movies, he will be joined by a different guest for every episode.

(Special Note: This list was compiled from newspaper ads from the New York, L.A, Chicago, Minneapolis and Detroit newspapers.  We found this to be more accurate than the IMDB, because we found many mistakes.  For example, they have Willie Dynamite listed as 1974, when it actually came out in Chicago in December of 1973.  There might some missing movies, but with the information we have on hand, this is the most comprehensive list we could come up with.  If we find more films while this podcast is airing, I will add more episodes at the end.)

You can download and subscribe to the podcast on itunes.
