Oh, I'm really looking forward to that. I have only seen Powell so far but I thought he was better in The Great Ziegfeld. I'm interested in your thoughts about Tracy since I have heard he was only in the movie for 15 minutes or so.

I think Tracy was on screen for about 25 minutes, but it's been awhile since I saw that.

My pick is Walter Huston for Dodsworth, which would be my choice for Best Picture as well.

I haven't seen any of them, but I'll guess you'll pick Powell.

Interesting guess Joe. I am not really sure at all who will be my pick this time, until I reexamine the performances. The other years I certainly had an inkling beforehand.
