Minute Forty: From Peggy Taking Aim to Steve Taking a Leap

Joining us on this episode, we have Krissy Lenz and Nathan Blackwell from the Most Excellent 80s Movies Podcast!

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

Agent Carter’s quite a shot, but Kruger’s got another trick up his sleeve as he blows up a car near her. That doesn’t stop her as she aims, shoots, and kills Kruger’s driver. We talk about Agent Carter through this scene and how madly skilled she is. We also talk about the Lucky Star Cab Company. Their logo seems awfully familiar. We talk a bit about the driver. He’s a busy character actor!

Steve tackles Peggy. Is he just a dumb oaf or what? We chat a bit about stunt doubles and the amazing work these people do in films like this. Kudos! We also talk a bit about Steve’s bare feet… or are they? Turns out he’s wearing fake feet shoes. Cool yet creepy. We have a link below if you’d like to see them.

The sets create a fantastic illusion of Brooklyn streets, but watching a minute at a time, we’re able to spot repeated elements and we talk through that a bit.

It’s a minute of running down a convoluted maze of movie set streets with Steve and Heinz. Tune in!
