Episode 1737: Kangaroo Corsets, 1920s Boxing, Mike Tyson And The Orchid Man, The Natural, And The Master – Murph And Mal’s Movie Club
The history of the heavyweight division from Jack Dempsey and the Orchid Man to Mike Tyson is just one of the documentaries up for discussion on the second episode of Murph and Mal’s Movie Club, with Malachy Clerkin of The Irish Times.
Eoin mainly just wants to discuss the kangaroo corsets and fascism of the inter-war years, while Ken is set some homework, in the form of the new series of “Sunderland Til I Die” on Netflix.

We also talk “A Year Til Sunday”, and Robert Redford’s “The Natural”, and why schmaltz is unavoidable when Hollywood turns to sport.
Murph picks teams and fights on twitter, Ken embarks on a never-ending story, and we discuss the subtle mind-games of the men who insist on opening a second button in their shirts.
