RMG 211: The Conversation (1974)

February 26, 2020

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by the lovely Trista Robinson (see more from Trista HERE and HERE), and they’re geeking out over The Conversation (1974) and

  • Ms. Robinson and her career
  • eavesdropping
  • social awkwardness & paranoia
  • the awesome cast
  • and much, much more!


Francis Ford Coppola’s provoking mystery-drama explores the morality of privacy, and stars Gene Hackman as Harry Caul, expert surveillance man. A routine wire-tapping job turns into a modern nightmare as Harry hears something disturbing in his recording of a young couple in a park. He begins to worry about what the tape may be used for, and becomes involved in a maze of secrecy and murder.

Set in San Francisco, the film also features Cindy Williams, Harrison Ford, and Frederic Forrest, and was nominated for Best Picture of 1974!
