Shat on TV listeners begging us to cover “”House of The Dragon”” finally get their wish in this week’s Shat The Movies feature: “”Arthur.”” This episode commissioned by David K. also explores what to wear shoplifting and features tons of listener mail.

Dudley Moore and John Gielgud aren’t household names in America, but the two English legends created an 1981 comedy alongside the goddess Liza Minnelli that distilled the essence of New York.

“Arthur” led the Shat Crew to conversations about Christopher Cross’ theme song for the movie, being stage drunk, surprise tears, unnecessary cruelty, Russell Brand, the pressure of growing up wealthy and how Scotch led to the prevalence of roosters in ’90s New Orleans kitchens.”

Plot Summary: “Arthur” Wealthy New York City playboy Arthur Bach (Dudley Moore) is perpetually drunk and completely rudderless. Dutifully supported by his sharp-tongued and quick-witted butler, Hobson (John Gielgud), Arthur reluctantly prepares to enter into an arranged marriage with heiress Susan Johnson (Jill Eikenberry). When he meets Linda Marolla (Liza Minnelli), a waitress from Queens, he falls head over heels in love, but if he backs out of his engagement with Susan, he may lose his fortune.
