I take quick looks at the Best Picture nominees of 1928/1929 (for the first few years of the award, the Academy used a non-calendar year): Alibi (1929), The Hollywood Revue of 1929 (1929), In Old Arizona (1929), and (sort of) The Patriot (1928). This was the first year to feature sound films. Let’s dive in to see how that turned out.

And the 1927/1928 Best Picture Nominees Are…

In this new series, I take quick looks at each nominee for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Best Picture award. We start off with the nominees of 1927/1928 (for the first few years of the award, the Academy used a non-calendar year): 7th Heaven (1927) and The Racket (1928). My other Oscar series, And the Oscar Goes to… covers the winners.
