Silver Linings Playback 203 – Ishtar

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of April, they are watching films that killed careers.

This week, Joel and Andy watch Ishtar, a movie that ended the directing career of Elaine May (of Nichols and May) and convinced Coca-Cola to sell Columbia Pictures.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott
