Back to the list for one more movie as the guys discuss the wartime musical Oh! What a Lovely War starring a bevy of British stars covered many times on this show. They talk about the use of real wartime songs, the way in which the film covers some truly dark material with a fake veneer of joy, Attenborough’s criticisms directed at the ruling class and much more.
Next week: OUR FINAL BRITISH LIST BECOMES SELF-AWARE.
