Screen Test of Time, Ep. 15: (Not) East Lynne
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 your long suffering hosts do when they still can't find a copy, no matter how grey market, of the 1931 version of East Lynne? Why, they find a movie that should have been nominated for Best Picture and wasn't to review instead.
