We’re kicking off a month of Patreon requests with a request from Dallas Novell; 1982’s TV movie The Executioner's Song. Based on a book by Norman Mailer with a screenplay by Mailer -- and maybe Tracy Keenan Wynn -- it’s the story of the last nine months in the life of Gary Gilmore which stars Tommy Lee Jones as Gilmore and Rosanna Arquette as his girlfriend, Nicole Baker.

Made for TV Mayhem's Amanda Reyes and Wake Up Heavy's Mark Begley join Mike to discuss the film, capital punishment, and more while director Lawrence Schiller talks about how The Executioner's Song came about.
