We arrive at maybe the most notorious and contentious Best Picture winners... ever? John Ford's How Green Was My Valley which triumphed over the 'Best Film Ever', Orson Welles Citizen Kane. In a possibly strident, and yet no less passionate, defense of How Green Was My Valley, co-hosts Dave and Andrew discuss John Ford's enduring classic, encouraging modern viewers to embrace this film without the shackles of its Oscar glory. Somehow we even wrap in a comparison to Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One.
Listen to Dave's Top 25 Films of All Time list on Talk Film Society here.
Oh, and also make sure to watch The Little Foxes too.
