In this episode, Sammi and Beau take you back to a magical time: 1997, when Windows 95 and Ska ruled alike, and the preeminent adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Emma' was born in 'Clueless.' This is one of three or four Modernizations of Jane Austen's work that really manages to successfully translate into the modern era.
'Clueless' stars Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Brittany Murphy, and Stacey Dash. Directed by Amy Heckerling
