Episode #83: TCMFF 2020 – Victor/Victoria (1982)

Our schedule took a detour with the announcement that the 2020 TCM Classic Film Festival was being cancelled due to the pandemic. So the gang decided to honor it with episodes devoting to the films we're sad to miss this year.
 
Kristen's pick may come from 1982 but has Old Hollywood glitz. It's Julie Andrew in Victor/Victoria! Come for the discussion of masculinity but stay for Samantha Ellis grousing about the 1980s.
