65 years on, Bob and Brad look at 1954's best Picture winner, On the Waterfront. Still held up as a prime example of method acting, Marlon Brando's performance is a a large reason the movie is remembered today. The guys discuss whether it holds up, and particularly take issue with the script and the development (and overall lack) of female characters.
They also split over who turns in the best supporting role. Is it Karl Malden's priest, Lee J Cobb's union boss, or Rod Steiger as Bando's conflicted brother?
Meanwhile, they return to the wolrd of Tennessee whiskey with Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniels' slightly-more-upscale offering. How does it compare to standard Jack Daniels? Is it worth a relatively inexpensive $30 price tag?
