Episode 686: The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)

Episode 686: The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) Guest Co-Hosts: Rahne Alexander, David Kittredge

Released in 1994, The Coen Brothers' The Hudsucker Proxy stars Tim Robbins as Norville Barnes, a graduate of Muncie Indiana’s business school.  He gets a job at Hudsucker Industries whose CEO, Waring Hudsucker (Charles Durning), happens to join the great hereafter the day Norville begins work.  After a mix-up, Barnes goes all the way from the mail room to the boardroom and becomes the new interim head of the corporation. 

Rahne Alexander and David Kittrredge join Mike to discuss the ins, the outs, and the what-have-yous about this oft-overlooked tribute to classic screwball comedies told only in the way that the Coen Brothers (and Sam Raimi) could tell it.
