Only The Best #3: The Best Picture Nominees of 1928/1929


It's an all-new episode of Only The Best, the podcast where William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review every single nominee for Best Picture, in chronological order! 

In this Patreon-exclusive podcast, Bibbs and Witney look back at the second annual Academy Awards, and review the Oscar-nominated crime thriller "Alibi," the all-star concert movie "The Hollywood Revue of 1929," the singing cowboy western "In Old Arizona," and the Best Picture winner "The Broadway Melody," an all-singing, all-dancing backstage melodrama.

Plus, our hosts also delve into the history of "The Patriot," the last silent film nominated for Best Picture in the 20th Century, which has been lost to history. Bibbs and Witney tracked down as much footage as they could, and also review the classic Josef von Sternberg/Marlene Dietrich epic "The Scarlet Empress," which incorporated footage from "The Patriot" into its montages.
