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!

Suzan and David are finally free of the 1930/1931 nominees! …But not free of Ernst Lubitsch and Maurice Chevalier’s misogynistic musicals. The Smiling Lieutenant is the movie that asks “What did people like about The Love Parade?” and gets the answer wrong every time. At least there’s a funny song about underwear. 

SHOW INFO: 

Year Eligible: 1931/1932 (nominated)

Music: "Jazz Up Your Lingerie" from The Smiling Lieutenant
