“The Paper Chase”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: November 7th, 2021 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

I’d long forgotten that when I was in law school decades ago, one of my favorite classes, with my favorite professor, was Contracts.

Which came to mind after somebody’s comment on an internet thread led me to rewatch the 1973 movie, “The Paper Chase.”

In which Timothy Bottoms plays a bright and earnest freshman at Harvard Law.

And John Houseman plays his imperious Contracts professor.

Also about as Bottoms’ love interest is Lindsay Wagner. Who, in the movie, happens to be said professor”s daughter.

For more details, and my take on the movie, listen to the podcast below:
