CATFA 032: Is This Where I Talk About the Cheese?

Minute Thirty-Two: From an Antique Entrance to a Secret Lab Entrance

Joining us on the show today, we’re joined by Matthew Costello, author of ‘Secret Identity Crisis: Comic Books and the Unmasking of Cold War America’.

In the thirty-second minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

Is it an antique shop? Or shoppe? Or something else? How do they remember the secret conversational code? We certainly get a laugh out of the original scripted version. It’s very much a journey from the past to the future. There’s the antique shop owner as played by Amanda Walker, who we love. She’s also got a secret button and a tommy gun. What do we think of that greenish medical look? How much does the SRR actually own on this block? But why Brooklyn and not an Army Base?

Time for a secret army base. Tune in!
