1943 Best Picture Nominee: The Ox-Bow Incident (William A. Wellman) – Awards Don't Matter Awards Don't Matter

While the 16th Best Picture winner – Casablanca – stands proudly as a bonafide classic, it isn't the only nominee of that year that stands the test of time as a genuine masterpiece. That honour also falls on William A. Wellman's undervalued social drama, The Ox-Bow Incident. At a tight 75 minutes long, The Ox-Bow Incident manages to deliver a stunning thriller that leaves the three hour bloated epics in its wake. Co-hosts Dave and Andrew delve into the power of masculinity, the cruelty of mob justice, and more in this deep discussion here. Read Dave's review of The Ox-Bow Incident at Insession Film here.
