The Dictator posterWe were lucky enough to be invited to take up a guest spot on the ABC Radio Overnights, at the interesting hour of 4am to 5am. Richard Gray joins Tony Arthur to discuss some of the ultimate Mad, Bad Rulers in film on ABC Radio’s Overnights Program. Produced by Dan Glover.

With the release of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new film The Dictator, we took a look at other dictators in film. Richard Gray, editor of online movie magazine The Reel Bits, joined Tony Arthur to discuss some of the ultimate Mad, Bad Rulers at the movies.

Discussing everything from Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, through Shakespeare and The Last King of Scotland, as well as the Star Wars Trilogy and The Lion King.

We’d like to thank Dan Glover for the invite onto the show, Tony Arthur for generously welcoming me onto the the show, and of course, the ABC for a warm place at 4am.
