Podcast: Once Upon a Time in America / The Beta Test – Extra Film

This week on Extra Film, Ryan and Jay conclude their Sergio Leone Movie Series with Once Upon a Time in America and they also review the latest from Jim Cummings in The Beta Test!

After a long, praise-filled episode last week talking about two of the most important westerns ever made, this week’s episode is slightly different. The boys conclude their Leone series in a way that could be divisive amongst our listener’s. But still, we hope you enjoy the conversation nonetheless. Jim Cummings has also been a fascinating story. His breakout film Thunder Road was a big InSession Film Awards player for both Ryan and Jay, but since then, it’s been a bit of a downhill battle. Which made The Beta Test a captivating review.

Thanks for listening!
