Revisiting the Oscars Podcast: Episode 23 – 1974

Revisiting the Oscars latest episode sees us cover the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest films of all time in ‘The Godfather‘! Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic mafia movie has been back in cinemas this year and what better time than now to revisit this classic film!

1972 packs a punch beyond ‘The Godfather‘ though, with memorable and lauded films also up for the big prize this year such as ‘Cabaret‘ and ‘Deliverance‘, not to mention a chance to potential discover a hidden gem or two with ‘Sounder‘ and ‘The Emigrants‘.

We also debrief this years Oscars and we’ve still got you covered with all the usual features on a trivia heavy episode – did anyone else spot the Tim Burton link in ‘Deliverance‘!?Last time round we headed back to 1972 to talk about arguably the greatest film of all time in ‘The Godfather‘, so we felt it would be rude not to continue the series with the next entry in the trilogy – all of which were nominated for Best Picture.

That means we’re in 1974, a year in which Francis Ford Coppola had 2 films nominated for the big prize (also ‘The Conversation‘), alongside leading roles from all time screen icons like Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman (‘Lenny‘), Jack Nicholson (‘Chinatown‘), Paul Newman and Steve McQueen (both ‘The Towering Inferno‘).

There might also be a long overdue return to some Corrie chat….!
