They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Episode 213: “Deluge” (1933).

August 24th, 2020


Lee and Daniel arrive in 1933 to witness the end of civilization as we know it, when the world is destroyed by the forces of nature in the Felix E. Feist-directed disaster movie "Deluge". Much of the conversation revolves around the tense opening of the film and the fantastic special effects the film pulls off on a very modest budget for the time. Then, as the film takes a turn from out in left field, so does the conversation, as we substitute mass destruction for a tale of rampant misogyny in a brave new world where women are rare. Also covered: what Lee has watched as of late.
