The golden age of Hollywood has a way of capturing our attention. The era of Bogey and Bacall, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracey and a whole lot of blonde bombshells is such a part of our collective memory that even if we haven’t seen those actors’ films, we know who they are.

You Must Remember This host Karina Longworth is a film critic and historian so she’s the perfect tour guide through the untold stories of old Hollywood. The show is meticulously researched and full of fun trivia nuggets about the industry’s early stars, like Joan Crawford and Jean Harlow.
