Great episode Brian!
I just watched Pal Joey the other week and I was amazed at the performances of Novak, Hayworth, and Sinatra. Don't forget Snuffy!

Hayworth was unbelievable in that dress when she sang after Frank auctioned her to the highest bidder. The scenes of SF in 1957 blew me away, the ferry ride approach, the use of Coit Tower as Hayworth's house (Novak walking away), and the North Beach scenes were so classic. I enjoyed this movie a lot. Well done Brian!

Read our breakdown on the following industrial revolution and why it hasn’t arrived yet right here. Sounds difficult, even with dozens of the steps missing, and that’s the purpose. Why Fishnet Stockings print a automotive door panel when we can use hydraulic stampers to press sheet metal blanks into the best shape before robotic-laser-welding them together?
