Episode 55 – Ziegfeld Girl – 1941

James “Jimmy” Irons joins me today to talk about the fabulous production that combines crazy headgear with amazing dresses: Ziegfeld Girl.

We discuss zings, one-liners, come-backs and other verbal disputes but also the difficulties of the 1940s, what it means to become a starlet and how you shouldn’t walk down a flight of stairs.

The charming and talented Monika Ben is joining us to cover a very special movie, Comrade X, the 1940s Hollywood-made communist comedy starring Clark Gable and Hedy Lamarr.
