This week, we return to the No Holds Barred script for one of the more bizarre sequences from either the screenplay or final movie.  In fact, this scene is so bizarre that Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon – famed for their authorial restraint – decided to remove it completely from their final version of the script.  And while any differences between the Dennis Hackin draft of the script and the final version written by Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon give us a window into their minds and creative process, we daresay that this scene in particular gives us a glimpse into the very soul of the American luminary Dennis Hackin.  It’s quite an exciting ride.

And in addition to examining the script, we discuss dog chores, turtles, cellar doors, Howard Kramer, hampers, pythons, smart horses, the Viet Cong, Gladiator 2, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Also, Jacob announces an exciting new project. Don’t miss it.

This week we’re back into the No Holds Barred script and discussing a few more pivotal scenes from the film, starting with the first two airings of the No Holds Barred Battle of the Tough-Guy Challenge (later abbreviated as the No Holds Barred Tough-Guy Challenge).  Besides just getting our first glimpse of Zeus in action, it turns out that these fight scenes revealed a massive surprise in the movie – one we had missed in over a year of covering this movie. 

We’ll also be getting a bit more backstory on Zeus and an alternate take on one of his most iconic fights.  And as always, this script affords us a peek behind the curtain and into the minds of three of America’s most acclaimed screenwriters:  Dennis Hackin (who wrote the original version of the script) and of course the powerhouse writing team of Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon (responsible for the movie version of the script).  You can never learn enough about luminaries such as these, so we certainly hope you’ll join us. 

And as if that weren’t enough, we’ll also be covering Judge Roy Bean, sea snails, pies, the movie Ghost, rodeo bulls, Taxi Driver, Bonanza, Teen Wolf, Batman, and The Righteous Brothers.  Don’t miss it.
