On this edition of the Supporting Actress Smackdown we're talking 1946 which turns out to be not just the most racially problematic lineup ever in the category but also the most bonkers in terms of the movies themselves: Duel in the Sun, The Razor's Edge, Saratoga Trunk, Spiral Staircase, and Anna and the King of Siam. Playwright Peter Duchan, film critic Guy Lodge, actor Tory Devon Smith, and writer Allen Nguyen join Nathaniel to talk Ethel Barrymore, Lillian Gish, and a wild post-war film year.
