Minute Eighty-Seven: From Blood on the Floor to Steak on the Table

Joining us on the show, we have Lorraine Dahm.

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

Ah, interrogation room tropes. There are a few here, and how fun they are. We chat about those, as well as the nonsensically loud door. Why does it sound legitimately like a prison door? We also talk about food shortages during the war, vegetarianism, Zola in the film, and more. Why did Zola let himself get captured? Or was that not his plan? And why does he seem so different in this film than later ones?

Lots to think about as the interrogation gets under way. Tune in!
