Lee & Daniel are back this week to solve some cases while hammered. This time out it's the comedy detective film "The Thin Man" (1934), directed by W.S. Van Dyke, based on a book by Dashiell Hammett. Much is made of the greatness of William Powell & Myrna Loy's on-screen chemistry, and just how well this film still plays in 2020. Things talked about: drinking all the time; what this series feels like it has influenced; what a new Thin Man series could be like, including casting thoughts; and how this film balances its comedy with the more serious elements. Listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel are pleased to welcome their friend James Murphy back to the podcast to talk about a classic of both written and filmed sci-fi/horror, with the James Whale-directed "The Invisible Man" (1933), based on the story by H.G. Wells. Things talked about include wacky magical science in the story and real life; how the invisible man spends a long time just running around hanging invisible dong; Whale trying to move away from "Frankenstein"; the use of comedy in the film; Claude Rains great performance; and the amazing special effects that still work to this day. Lee and James also briefly talk about what they've watched as of late.

This week Lee and Daniel are still in 1933, and they decided to sleep their way to the top with bad girl Barbara Stanwyck, in the Alfred E. Green-directed "Baby Face" (1933). Does this pre-code bad-girl-having-sex-picture actually push any boundaries even for its time? Is that John Wayne in a bit part? How is this film comparable with sex comedies and softcore films from the last thirty years? How would the hosts have made this film? Lee also talks briefly about what he's watched as of late.
