In Minute 116 of The Whole Shebang, Mike and Jenny begin their journey into Velvet Goldmine’s closing credits by talking about Steve Harley and some of the other social realist films of the 1990s that used 1970s-heavy soundtracks, then closing credits in general, how much Mike hates the Marvel movies, closing credits cuteness and all, and how it all started back in the ‘70s with Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise, then we begin with Velvet Goldmine’s actual credits, starting with the top-billed cast. We rank the performances of the top-billed cast and we compare Jonathan Rhys Meyers to Malcolm McDowell, look at some of the workaday actors “below the fold” in the credits, and then spend some time projecting Whatever Happened To The Fripperies, then talk about the stunts and whether or not there were stunt butts. Then it’s onto the cast members who were parts of bands, and a discussion of the producers and the people behind the titles, Bureau.
