Welcome to The B-Side, from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies from established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones.

Today, we talk about one of the movie stars. A man who has been famous for longer than you have been alive. We’re talking Warren Beatty. Conor O’Donnell and I bring on movie nerd and good friend Adam Drosin to discuss McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Fortune, Dick Tracy, and Rules Don’t Apply. Yes, we cheated with a couple of A-Sides in there, but not to worry, we talk about a whole lot more.

Much from the gossipy Peter Biskind book Star is mentioned, along with this 2018 Variety article about the failure of Rules Don’t Apply and the aftermath.

* Correction Note: Splendor In The Grass was released in 1961 & An Affair To Remember was released in 1957
