In the fifth episode, we talk about a talking picture! It’s The Skin Game, from 1931. We discuss horrible families being horrible to one another, belatedly realise a character’s existence and muse about the comic premise of Here Come The Habibs.
In the fourth picture we’ve covered, we’re less concerned about The Trouble with Harry and far more concerned with the sociopathic inhabitants of a small Vermont town, why having a frog in your pants is a good move on a first date and how life becomes easier when absurdly generous millionaires pop in to help.
For our third picture, we talk about the very silent Easy Virtue from 1928 and investigate why scandals aren’t what they used to be, what makes a mother-in-law really terrible and why the hell Dan can’t remember Weekend At Bernie’s.
