Only the Best: The Best Picture Nominees of 1934 (Part 2)!

ONLY THE BEST returns with the second half of the Best Picture Oscar-nominees of 1934! There were twelve nominees, and in this episode we dive into "Imitation of Life," "One Night of Love," "The Thin Man," "Viva Villa!," "The White Parade" and the winner, one of the most influential comedies ever made, Frank Capra's "It Happened One Night."

It's a strange ensemble of radically different movies, including progressive social dramas, creepy Opera romances, drunken murder mysteries, Mexican war epics, serious nursing school dramas and wacky road trips! 

And it's a veritable "who's who" of classic Hollywood, with performances by the great Claudette Colbert, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Wallace Beery, Loretta Young, Clark Gable and, well, Claudette Colbert (again)!

Only The Best is a Patreon-exclusive podcast, and you can listen right now for a $10 monthly pledge! You'll also get more bonus podcasts, the chance to vote for future episodes and the power to assign articles to Witney Seibold and William Bibbiani!
