(Podcast Interview Duration: 55 Minutes)
(Podcast Interview Duration: 55 Minutes)
David Bowie accomplished many things during his long career, but it’s impossible to discuss that career without a nod to his bizarre but unforgettable role as the Goblin King in Jim Henson’s movie Labyrinth. The film, which turns 30 years old this June (in 2016), has somewhat improbably become one of David Bowie’s most memorable projects.
So in honor of the artist, who passed away Sunday 11th January 2016, at the age of 69, let’s look back at the glorious weirdness that began its life as box office flop and has since become a beloved cult classic.
In August, 2011 the Jim Henson Company celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the cult Jim Henson film “Labyrinth”. In this exclusive audio interview, listen to Sam Downie interviewing novelist A.C.H Smith who wrote the novelisation to the movie.
