Screen Test of Time, Ep. 18: Bad Girl
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!

Our hosts have learned not to judge a movie by its poster this week, but surely they should be able to infer something about it from its title? Not so with Bad Girl, a charming if befuddling picture about... well, a woman who really doesn't live up to the moniker and the man she marries. If you take away nothing else from this week's episode, David and Suzan hope you learn that communication is the key to a happy relationship, and that there is an upper limit to how much you should spend on a surprise gift for your partner.
Year Eligible: 1931/1932
