Episode #11: You Can’t Take It With You


Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.

On this episode, we are discussing the eleventh Best Picture Winner: “You Can’t Take It With You.”

In the film, “You Can’t Take It With You,” sweet-natured Alice Sycamore falls for a big-wig banker’s son named Tony Kirby. But when she invites her snooty prospective in-laws to dinner to give their blessing for the marriage, Alice’s peculiar extended family — including philosophical grandfather Martin Vanderhof, hapless fledgling ballerina sister Essie and fireworks enthusiast father, Paul — might just be too eccentric for the staid Kirbys. Directed by Frank Capra, the film stars Jean Arthur as Alice Sycamore, Lionel Barrymore as Martin Vanderhof, James Stewart as Tony Kirby, Edward Arnold as Anthony P. Kirby, and Ann Miller as Essie Carmichael.
