37 – Trojan Horse 2: Nurse! With Audrey Fox

Summary

Remember old-school nurses? The white-starched uniform, kind bedside manner and comforting, feminine presence? Cinema remembers. A movie was made that sought to turn that stereotype on its head. 

Nurse Ratched is widely known as the most deliciously heinous member of the nursing profession. She’s also – according to our guest Audrey Fox – a Trojan Horse, standing out as a powerful women in a world full of dangerous men. 

Contrarah and Audrey discuss Louise Fletcher’s magnificent performance, as well as life behind the scenes on the set of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
