Dan Webster is the blogger of Movies & More for Spokane7.com and former Spokesman Review Film Critic, who got seriously into movies back in his UC San Diego days. Mary Pat Treuthart is a tenured law professor and happens to be Dan's wife. Throw in the trios youngest member, Nathan Weinbender, and you have Movies 101 – the weekly film review program on KPBX and KSFC. The program began mid-1999 with Bob Glatzer at the helm as KSFC started establishing itself as a separate news and information service. As the station matured, so has Movies 101, with lots of specials guests and lively banter. It is Spokane Public Radio's most listened to podcast.
Remembering Movies 101 Founder, Robert Glatzer Friday, October 15, 2010 - A member of our SPR family, Movies 101 founder, host, and film critic Bob Glatzer has died today following a stroke on Tuesday. He was 78 years old. Before coming to Spokane, Bob had been a director and film critic in New York City. He came to Spokane to film Expo '74 for the Smithsonian...and stayed to, not only found a public radio fixture program, but to also help bring the hidden gems of worldwide movie-making to the Inland Northwest by co-founding the annual Spokane International Film Festival.By our reckoning, Bob was with SPR for nearly 20 years--maybe longer. Whether offering solo film reviews during Morning Edition, or lively debate with fellow critics Dan Webster, Mary Pat Treuthart, and Leonard Oakland on Movies 101, Bob's humor, wit, and clear passion for the cinema arts made him an endearing fixture both in our studios and on our airwaves. Even when he was at his "other job," teaching film direction at Eastern Washington University, his reviews, insights, and unique turns-of-phrase gave him a continued presence in our offices as we discussed, and debated, Bob's latest critiques.
