It’s the 600th episode of The Projection Booth and we’re celebrating with a special episode all about Bill Forsyth's Local Hero. Released in 1983, the film stars Peter Riegert as MacIntyre, a corporate exec who’s really more of a Telex man but gets sent to Scotland by his boss, Felix Happer (Burt Lancaster), to secure needed land for the Knox oil corporation.

Rob St. Mary and Jonathan Melville join Mike to discuss the film while Peter Riegert talks about his role in the film.

  1. Literally, my #1 movie. And that hasn't changed since the day I saw it in the theater. Magical realism meets Scottish scenery (which you "can't eat," as per the script), meets Texas, meets the former USSR, meets the extraordinary director, Bill Forsyth.
