Poor health kept Walter Hill out of the Army in the '60s, but that twist of fate led him into filmmaking during the tumultuous end of that decade. Walter tells Marc about being there for the major shift in cinema during the '70s, making his own influential films like The Driver, The Warriors and 48 Hours, and working closely with actors like Steve McQueen, Eddie Murphy, and Richard Pryor. Walter also explains how he helped kick off the Alien franchise. This episode is sponsored by Silicon Valley on HBO, 1-800 Dentist, and Lewis Black: The Rant Is Due on Audible Channels.

    Peckinpah was definitely a great filmmaker, but Walter took those tools and made infinitely better films. No matter how much praise is given to Walter, he is forever underrated. He's in the top 5 greatest American directors.
