Screen Test of Time, Ep. 8: Disraeli

Screen Test of Time is a podcast where Suzan Eraslan and David Daw set out to watch every movie ever nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, in order, from the first awards season to, eventually the present day. Each week, they watch and review a different movie, and when they've watched everything nominated in a particular year, they tell you whether the Oscar went to the right one!

What do you get when you mash up a drawing room comedy, a spy caper, and a proto-biopic? Well, you get something of a mess, but at least a mostly entertaining one. Disraeli starts off the 1929/1930 nominees with a confused morass of a movie, but great fodder for David and Suzan to explore questions like "Should a paean to a guy who made Queen Victoria the Empress of India even exist?" "Are ladies men always inherently awful sexists?" "What really is a restoration comedy?"
