Episode 138: "Raising Arizona"

Never leave a man behind! 

 After Blood Simple won Sundance, everyone expected the Coen Brothers to follow up with another noir .

But instead they pulled a 180, giving us a slapstick masterpiece and their first bona fide hit!

By now, we're used to the Coen Brothers' penchant for goofy comedy, from the musical massacre in Buster Scruggs to the suggestive Navy dance number in Hail Caesar.

But Blood Simple, their debut film, had been a grim, Sundance-friendly noir - so in 1987,

No one suspected their sophomore effort would turn out to be a slapstick classic!

Join MG as we take on Raising Arizona!

Yoders and Sh*t
