Huzzah! We have a fourth episode of Simone Chavoor’s excellent podcast, Die Hard With a Podcast. This time around she’s talking John McLane’s estranged wife, Holly. Take a listen!
Holly Gennaro McClane: portrayed in Die Hard by Bonnie Bedelia, John McClane’s estranged wife reflects the conflicts and contradictions facing women at the time the film was made – and even still today. She’s a working woman, a mother, and a wife. But there’s no consensus on whether she’s also a damsel in distress, or if she – like so many other conventions that Die Hard challenges – goes beyond your typical 80s action movie female lead.
In this episode, Simone is joined by Reed Fish, Ed Grabionowski, Sasha Perl-Raver, Adam Sternbergh, Katie Walsh, and Scott Wampler.
Stay tuned! As Simone releases new episodes we’ll send them your way, but if you want to ditch the middle man, you can subscribe to the podcast here on iTunes or follow the show via the official website.
