It's been going for a while, but the Love is a Crime podcast has reached Joan Bennett being recruited to Dark Shadows.
Love is a Crime is a podcast is about a big Hollywood scandal - the marriage of producer Walter Wanger to Joan Bennett, and her later affair with her agent, Jennings Lang. The podcast was developed by Hollywood historian Katrina Longworth with Vanessa Hope, Joan's granddaughter, and leaves one shot, one jailed and one with a ruined career. The podcast is semi-dramatised, with John Hamm as Wanger, Zoee Deschanel as Bennett and Griffin Dunne as Land. As well as leading to Bennett joining new production Dark Shadows, the story partially inspired the Oscar-winning The Apartment.
It's not exactly standard fare for Dark Shadows fans, but may be of interest! Available at a podcatcher near you
