War Machine vs. War Horse: Hail, Caesar! (Sweet Smell of Success vs. Michael Clayton)

On this episode we bring in author Ivan Infante as the fixer to this podcast, as he talks about fixers in the films SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS and MICHAEL CLAYTON. All of this inspired by the new Coen Bros. film HAIL, CAESAR! And right after that, we try something new on the podcast as Web Bist from the show IT’S TERRIFIC reads a chapter from Mr. Infante’s novel FALSE RANSOM.
