Book Vs Movie (RIP Robert Evans)

Rosemary’s Baby”

Special Podcast Guest Juliette Miranda and Margo D. Take a Close Look at the Classic Book and Movie

Today we learned that Paramount Chief Robert Evans passed away at the age of 89. So we decided to replay one of our favorite episodes is honored. Margo D. (co-host of Book Vs. Movie) and Juliette Miranda of the Unwritable Rant podcast turn up the spookiness talking about the classic Ira Levin novel and the venerated film directed by Roman Polanski.

This originally ran in 2017. Enjoy!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The incredible work of Ira Levin
  • Mia Farrow’s incredible performance and offscreen troubles with husband Frank Sinatra (!)
  • The near-perfect direction by Roman Polanski and how he frames his shots.
  • The weird rape scene featuring a rather unfortunate “hairy paw”
  • How strong (or weak) the character of Rosemary is at different times in the movie.
