Rankin on Bass: The Bushido Blade (1981)

Special Guests: Benni Korzen, Mike Starr
Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Richard Hatem

The Rankin on Bass podcast is still going strong so I wanted to share our most recent episode with Projection Booth listeners:

On episode 21 of the Rankin on Bass podcast we're discussing "Tom" Kotani's The Bushido Blade (1981). Written by , it's the fictionalized account of Commodore Perry (Richard Boone) and his crew making a treaty with Japan. The film fractures into essentially three storylines featuring Frank Converse, Timothy Patrick Murphy, and Mike Starr in his first film role.

Interviews include a snippet of an earlier interview with Starr as well as a new interview with producer Benni Korzen who worked on the live action Rankin & Bass pictures going all the way back to The Enchanted World of Danny Kaye.
