Once a month we get to check in with Film and Pop Culture Professor Jack Nachbar.  He hosts a classic movie series at the Edge Center for the Arts in Bigfork, MN.  Bigfork has a population of 446 people and the community and visitors are treated to not only a film, but a cartoon from the same year.

For the February 8th showing Jack chose "My Favorite Wife" from 1940 starring Irene Dunne and Cary Grant.  In our conversation John Bauer also got some questions answered about the editors cut of "Woodstock" the documentary he watched until 2:30 in the morning this week.
