Lee and Daniel have made their way back to the 1930s this week. This time out they look at two films from 1931; one of which holds up really well and another that doesn't at all. Between the witty and energetic script and camera moves of "The Front Page" and the slow, plodding mystery of "The Black Camel", they'll let you guess which is which. Things talked about: RIP Ennio Morricone; how Charlie Chan was considered progressive on Asian stereotypes in its day; yellow face; the real man behind Charlie Chan; a bit of the history of Hawaii; Lucy Liu; fancy camera moves in 1931; a mother-fucker with a banjo; taking shits and having drinks in a movie; listener comments and what the hosts have watched as of late.
