This month’s film is The Big Broadcast of 1938 (1938). From Wikipedia: “The Big Broadcast of 1938 is a Paramount Pictures musical comedy film starring W. C. Fields and featuring Bob Hope. Directed by Mitchell Leisen, the film is the last in a series of Big Broadcast movies that were variety show anthologies. This film featured the debut of Hope’s signature song, ‘Thanks for the Memory’ by Ralph Rainger.” (Watch a clip featuring the song below!)
If you choose to watch the movie before the discussion, it is available to view for free on YouTube.
