Good episode? Give it some love!
This week we look at Harlem Nights (1989), the first, and only, film Eddie Murphy has written and directed. An action-comedy about the owners of an illegal club dealing with cops, gangsters, and competition in 1930s New York. A mix of comedy legends and up and coming stars, this film tries to balance its action, comedy, and menace, and mostly succeeds. We dive into the story, the importance of the film, and the impact of its stars on entertainment from the 40s through to today. So join us for some anecdotes, trivia, and more in this week's Celluloid Fever Dreams, where we try to turn the film you haven't heard of, into your new favorite.
