S.O.B. (1981)

S.O.B. (1981)It's out 250th episode and we can't believe we've done 249 episodes before this! It seems like only yesterday we were starting out with an idea and hope. In actuality, it was June 5th of 2016, so almost 5 years ago! For this anniversary pairing, we're looking at movies about making movies! First up, it's director Black Edwards' lesser-known masterpiece, S.O.B. (which stands for "Standard Operational Bullshit" in this case). The story follows acclaimed Hollywood producer Felix Farmer (Richard Mulligan) whose latest film, starring his ex-wife Sally Miles (Julie Andrews) has bombed. Unable to cope with his first abject failure, Felix is suicidal, requiring the assistance of his friends Cully (William Holden), Ben (Robert Webber) and Dr. Irving Finegarten (Robert Preston). After literally falling into a party, Felix has an epiphany: He'll turn his family film bomb into an erotic masterpiece! Unfortunately, that means his rated-G wife would need to do a nude scene, something she has never even entertained, let alone done! With a supporting cast including such Hollywood staples as Larry Hagman, Robert Loggia, Stuart Margolin, Loretta Swit, Robert Vaughn, Shelly Winters, and Rosanna Arquette, it's a tour de force in dark comedy filmmaking!
