Austin and Eric are back to discuss the first film in their Billy Wilder series. They begin with one of his screenwriting triumphs: Ninotchka. It’s the story of a strict socialist Russian who becomes corrupted by the joys of Paris (and capitalism). The guys discuss Wilder’s successes with the characters, their changes and the brilliant structure of this hilarious romantic comedy.
