Great interview.

so odd to distill almost 40 years of a life down to a few statements.

Great interview! “Mad Max” was one of the first videos I rented back in the 1980s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Rich in Washington:

I always wanted to know how some of these actors reacted to the USA dubbed version of the film. For so many years, that was the only way to watch Mad Max in the US. When the original was finally made available here, it was such a weird revelation.

all i remember about potemkin is the baby buggy down the steps.
Avatar 7:42pm Devon E. Levins:

Rich, I actually spoke with Paul about that after the interview and he laughed about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I watched the latest Mad Max the other day. I felt it had a lot of "this doesn't make any sense."
  7:45pm Gilly:

Such a great interview. Fury Road was like a Rob Zombie video though. Awful.
Avatar 7:45pm dale:

the dubbed version is the only one i've ever seen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Rich in Washington:

I'd always believed the long standing legend that it was dubbed by AIP because they couldn't sell it to the drive-in chase movie crowd, but IMDB says that it was also because the original mix was really poor, coupled with the Aussie accents being somewhat difficult to understand with the latter problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Rich in Washington:

It's a trip hearing the original, as someone who's seen the dubbed version many times, over many years. So different.
Avatar 7:49pm Devon E. Levins:

I recall Paul confirming that the distributor was worried that the Americans wouldn't be able to understand the Australian accents which seems silly now. As a result the dialogue and music levels were all off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm mb:

Woo hoo! Desert Sessions!
  7:55pm Gilly:

Whoa this is awesome
Avatar 7:56pm JakeGould:

Wait? The original U.S. release was dubbed? I guess when the DVD version was release they had the original soundtrack on there, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Washington:

These interviews were fantastic! Both last week and this one.
Avatar 7:56pm dale:

thanks for seeking these guys out - interesting people.
Avatar 7:57pm Devon E. Levins:

Thanks all. Goodnight and see you next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Rich in Washington:

Yes. I think it was mainly dubbed on all its VHS issues, even when MM2 was a big hit. If I remember correctly, it wasn't until its DVD issue that they had the original soundtrack, although I remember seeing a bootleg VHS that had it and a supposedly longer cut.
  7:03pm Sylvia:

This warms my heart!
