On this month's special interview episode, prolific writer and director, Stephen Tolkin joins the show! Stephen Tolkin has had a storied career for almost 40 years where he's written, directed, and produced dozens of TV shows and movies. In his early days, Tolkin worked for the notorious and wild studio, Cannon Films, where he had a hand in contributing an uncredited rewrite of the 1987 classic, Masters of the Universe! In this fun discussion, Tolkin fills me in on what it was like working with Menham Golan and Yoram Globus at Cannon, as well as his experiences writing Masters of the Universe and the unproduced sequel! Tolkin also allows me to take a slight detour and we chat his approach to adapting the star-spangled superhero of Marvel Comics, Captain America for the (in my opinion underrated!) 1990 Captain America film!
